THE NORTH FACE FLIGHT SERIES FUSE

price: £170
WEIGHT: 155G

The Fuse uses the brand's own lightweight 2.5-layer waterproof fabric, and adds ventilation by perforating the membrane up the back and under the arms. It’s hard to tell how much this helps, but it didn’t appear to leak. It’s a good-looking jacket, well cut, and features a zipped chest pocket, reflective detail and adjustable hood.

VERDICT

A stylish yet technical racing and training jacket.
