Stuff Preview: North Face Spatter Jacket

In: NEWS, REVIEWS, TECH By: Jeff Lockwood On: June 22, 2010

In an effort to give you some insight into the products we plan to send through our rigorous testing process here at Dirt Rag, we’ve come up with the Stuff Preview series. Each week, we’ll present one product that is currently in the hands of one of our testing staff. We’ll post a photo of the product, and give you the basic skinny as put forth by the product manufacturer. These products will appear in a future issue of Dirt Rag, and you’ll have to subscribe or buy the issue to get the full review.

This week we have the North Face Spatter Jacket.

Karl, Dirt Rag Product Testing Coordinator, says: “My ears perked up when I heard that North Face was entering the mountain bike apparel market. For the 2010 spring/summer season, TNF launched a limited collection of both men’s and women’s garments. They tell me that they plan to expand the line this fall. One of their initial offerings that caught my eye was the men’s Spatter Jacket. I really liked the clean-looking design and was psyched to learn that the hood was designed to fit over a bike helmet. Bring on the rain.”
