The North Face Jitterbug Jacket

The North Face Jitterbug Jacket

Dek: 
I was ready to dislike this jacket. Then I wore it.

Chrysler’s PT Cruiser made me forever skeptical of retro re-launches. So I was ready to dislike this jacket, especially when I saw its purple, black, and acid-green argyle lining that looks like a Hot Topic adaptation of the famous golf-sweater pattern. But something about neon colors is irresistible, so I slipped on the 550-fill down jacket and wanted to keep it. Design-critique aside, I did actually take this jacket skiing one day. The ’70s-style ribbed elastic cuffs keep your wrists warm, the hood will fit over your helmet, and the down is plenty toasty. Open the pocket and you’ll even find an attached goggle-wiping cloth. This jacket runs small, so order a size up if you want to layer underneath. The elastic waist sits around your hips, but the powder skirt will ensure that you don’t get snow up your jacket if you take a digger. [thenorthface.com]  —Hillary Procknow
