The North Face Tanken Wind Wall jacket

I’m a sucker for a bright jacket, especially yellow and orange ones, there’s something about dressing like a fisherman that appeals to me, even down to the chunky sweaters. I digress.

The North Face Tanken WindWall is named after the pronunciation of the Japanese word for “expedition and you’d be glad to have one of these in your pack if the weather turned quickly.

Utilising the North Face’s proprietary WindWall fabric, the Tanken will keep out the wind and keep you warm, whilst the DWR (durable water-repellant) coating will keep you the rain at bay. And if that wasn’t enough for you, it packs down into its own handy little bag!

Perfect for the upcoming transition into Autumn, this is well worth a spot in your bag (or clipped to your belt).
