An uncompromising alpine shell

The North Face Women's Alpine Project Jacket is a Summit Series technical jacket for demanding climbs in the worst conditions.

The Gore-Tex Active shell technology ensures stunning levels of breathability and weatherproofing at a very low weight, making it ideal for alpine style climbing: a fast moving, technical discipline where you carry nothing you don't need. An alpine climbing fit allows an excellent range of motion without an excess of fabric that can snare winds or pointed rocks.

The hood is fully adjustable to ensure a close fit and is compatible with mountaineering helmets. The laminated brim stands proud to keep the weather off your face.

The handwarmer pockets are carefully placed to ensure easy access when you are wearing a backpack or a climbing harness. When your body temperature rises, the pit vents can be unzipped to allow heat to escape so you remain comfortable.

Like all Summit Series products, the Alpine Project Jacket has been athlete tested and expedition proven.

Please note that some items of women's clothing from The North Face are labelled with a US dress size, so a UK size 12, for instance, may have a label stating size 8. When ordering from Cotswold Outdoor, all dress size options correspond to UK sizes.

well-made but some details needed more thought
Reviewed By Eleanor, 13 May 2015

First impressions on receiving the jacket:

It's well-made and the material is excellent, the hood's nice and roomy. The sleeves are quite long and it's not as fitted around the waist as it looks in the photo. The zips are waterproof but the flap behind the main zip is too narrow so the zip tends to snag on its way up. The inside side of the pockets is mesh rather than waterproof, this will make them breathable but there are pit zips for that and I'd expect it risks water getting to your body if you have to open your (quite large and gaping) pockets in the rain.
It also lacks an inside pocket which I'd say is a big negative (to be fair it doesn't advertise an inside pocket). I find inside pockets the best for keeping things dry in the rain, stopping things from falling out of the larger outside pockets or for keeping valuables safe from pickpockets if you ever wear the jacket in a city. With this jacket if you're carrying a phone or any paper in the rain then one of your two pockets is out of action unless you want them to get wet - you couldn't put your hands in your pockets for warmth or comfort.

The hidden adjusters for the waist and hood look tidy but are fiddly, it would be difficult to adjust the tightness with one hand. They also mean you have a long string of elastic in each pocket which could get tangled up with anything else that was in your pockets and you can end up with loops of spare elastic either side of your chin and behind your head.

Overall it's a decent jacket but for this price I'm a bit disappointed.
