        Definitely liked this jacket. Does what it needs to do - keeps the rain and wind out and the heat in. I always coupled it with a north face fleece during the winter, but also took this on many a camping trip in the summer for my wind/rain protection.

        Lots of room for full pockets during in bounds hikes and didn't feel like anything was bursting at the seams.

        All and all a nice rugged all purpose shell.

        Overall

        The good people at North Face were kind enough to set me up with this jacket, and after having owned many of their jackets and pants in my younger years, I was quickly reminded why they're considered to be one of the big kahunas of the outdoor world.

        Performance

        The Gonzo Jacket can take a beating in any and all weather catastrophes, and has kept me dry during the lucky days I've had the chance to rock it. As far as warmth goes, the shell is a bit thin as all North Face shells tend to be, but whatever voodoo spells they cast on it seem to work, as I've yet to be chilled to the bone. Even the snowmobile grease on it has come off without a fight.

        Design

        I know Wallisch has been hyping the Pittsburgh Steelers steeze on this jacket, but since I'm Canadian, I'm going to go ahead and claim the Hamilton Tiger Cats. Black and yellow FTW!

        Fit

        The North Face isn't known for their baggier fits, so to avoid ending up with too small of a jacket, I played it safe and went with the XL...and was pleasantly surprised. It's not too wide across the chest, and has a respectable amount of length to it, making it one of the finer fitting jackets I've had in a while.

        Durability

        The name says it all. The North Face knows how to produce a bomb proof garment for all conditions and temperatures, and this jacket helps prove that their reputation is well deserved and then some.

        2010 Original Wallisch Gonzo Jacket
        Black & Yellow -

        Lighter weight shell with small insulation available. Media pocket for phone, iPod, chap-stick you name it.

        Easily able to fit a 2XL Hoody underneath with smaller layers below that. Never had problems out in CO or UT at Park/Resort Skiing.

        Feel like BumbleBee from Transformers with my Yello Fargo Cargo TNF Pants as well.
