2.    FUSEFORM DOT MATRIX JACKET

The North Face FuseForm Dot Matrix Jacket is a simple and functional 2.5 layer hiking shell constructed using FuseForm technology, a proprietary process that makes it possible to combine different material weaves into one piece of fabric.

 

BREATHABILITY

The Dot Matrix jacket offered decent breathability, supplemented with the somewhat short pit zips. It is not an ideal jacket for running, but decent for hiking in humid conditions.

Thanks to the high quality and comfortable clothes

 

FUNCTION

Besides the disappointing hood, all other features worked well for me. The two hand pockets, cinch waist, earphone port, wrist cinch straps, seemed well designed and implemented. The large hand pockets sit out of the way of pack straps, allowing for easy access.
