cool new piece of UL kit
I discovered the North Face Verto Micro Hoody today. A hybrid style jacket with a blend of 800 fill down for the core and a Pertex shell for wind resistance, this could be a bomber piece of kit to add to your stable. In my mind it falls somewhere between a Patagonia Nano Puff and the Patagonia Down Shirt. The Pertex shell insures it will be lightweight and weather resistant, something not true of the Patagonia Down Sweater that I do very much love.
Weighing in at about 240 grams, this is definitely a piece of kit worth checking out.
