After I got rid of my old North Face Mountain Guide Jacket I spent a lot of time looking for the right shell jacket, and found the Tenacity Descent Jacket to be everything I was looking for; style, function, and ability, are the only ways to describe this jacket properly. The quality is awesome and there was clearly a lot of thought put into the function of the jacket. Lightweight, yet very durable and breathable; zip-off hood and power skirt, and the hoods adjustments are amazing. This is the best fitting jacket I have ever ownedI look forward to bad hard weather now so I can use my jacket! This is really one jacket that is worth the money!
