It's Sneak Preview time again! In our last foray into the world of TNF sneak previews we brought you the Men's Infiesto & Havoc Full Zips, that was Monday and we don't do resting on our laurels here at Outdoorkit, so without further ado, here's another sumptuous glimpse at what we've got coming in this Spring/Summer!
Introducing The North Face Cipher Hybrid Hoodie. It's officially new for the SS12 Season, although it's carrying on from where the Cipher Hybrid Jacket from last Summer left off. There's been a bit of a name change and a few updated specifications to bring it into the new season, giving it a new look and improved performance.
The Cipher Hoodie has been made with an innovative Gore Windstopper Softshell fabric, giving a wind permeability rating of 0 CFM, so you've got windproof assurance when you fancy venturing out on those blustery days. The hoodie has also been constructed with TNF Apex Aerobic stretch side panels, providing the jacket with ample 4-way stretch flexibility, always a bonus when participating in faster paced pursuits. The side panels have a wind permeability rating of 10 CFM, so although not completely windproof, it'll still have very good protection against less than favourable conditions.
The hoodie's alpine fit gives it a sleek look, ready for any activity and it's large alpine pockets provide an easy place to store your essentials, such as maps and other documents and accessories. The attached hood gives good all round protection from the elements and it's adjustable elastic bound edged hood allows for the best possible fit. Again, for a customizable fit the Cipher has non-abrasive molded cuff tabs.
The hoodie's main weapon in it's armory is it's ability to keep the wind at bay, but with an added Durable Water Repellent coating, light showers and snow drift won't be a problem either!
The North Face Cipher Hybrid Hoodie weighs in at a lightweight 640g and will retail at around £160. It comes in four different colours; Athens Blue, TNF Black, Asphalt Grey and Sublime Green.
