North Face Redpoint Jacket


David W.E. Roberts


I currently have a MK 1 RedPoint jacket from TNF - the version before they
used PrimaLoft as insulation.

I am looking for a MK 2 jacket because the Mk 1 is so good.

However, despite rave reviews in outdoor magazines, I can't seem to find one
in any of the local TNF stockists such as Outdoors, Millets, Blacks.

Does anyone know of a shop in East Anglia which stocks them?

Failing that, anywhere in the UK?

I can find the jackets for sale on the Internet, but I would really like to
try one for size before I buy.

The North Face don't seem to have an email query address, you have to write
or phone Italy!

Ellis Brigham in Manchester have them. They have a webpage and do mail

As far as synthetic filled insulating jackets are concerned you could
also check out the Rab range (Photon is supposed to be good and light
but not very thick) Montane and also my latest discovery and
acquisition Golite (I bought a belay Jacket at half price from which is light, warm and compacts to quite a small
size for a synthetic.
