/ NEW REVIEW: The North Face DNP Hoodie
Does he like it? Does he loathe it?
"Perhaps it's more a style thing...?"

It looks like it's a well fitting as a sack in those photos!
Are the sleeves insulated?
Great to see Dan testing the Hoodie on the hill and not just 'having a look at it'! Enjoyed the photos too.
Agreed, it looks about two sizes too big. Maybe that's why it has "Good freedom of movement, scrambling Am Fasarinen".
It's not the closest fitting, but then it's designed to be able to layer over the top of other things. Should maybe have mentioned it in the review but I didn't really think it an issue. It's very thin, so billows a lot in high wind as in the photos here. Perhaps that makes is look more sacklike than it really feels?
I'd be interested to know what camera bag you're pictured with in the photos Dan - not found a good solution to scrambling with an SLR but that looks worth a try (if not DNP)
It's an Aquapac something or other that a mate very kindly gave me. Don't know what they cost but I can't really recommend it for scrambling, climbing etc. I'm using it because I've currently got nothing else, but long term it'll be my wet weather walking - only bag. On the plus side it's waterproof. Downside, the roll-top and unstructured insides make getting camera in and out quite a fiddle. It's also bigger and squarer than it needs to be.
A basic Lowepro bag or similar would be better
Many thanks for the helpful reply
