The North Face Women's Alpine Project GTX Active Jacket
Great light jacket
I wanted something for cross country skiing and hiking and this fits the bill perfectly. Very light, keeps out the wind and the rain and fine to wear about town too.

A well fitted light weight waterproof
Light weight close fitted good hood big enough to cover helmet

I bought this jacket for outdoor climbing and biking in poor weather. The hood is excellent. I can fit my bike and climbing helmets underneath no problems, and if you're not wearing a helmet you can cinch the hood tight around your head. It's a great hood for if you wear glasses, too.
The jacket is super lightweight, and the Gore-Tex makes it brilliantly waterproof. I've worn it out in a heavy thunderstorm and stayed nice and dry. The pit-zips are great ventilation.
The fit is good: tighter round the bottom to fit under a harness with a bit more room for movement in the arms and shoulders for when you're reaching for holds. The two big pockets are nice and high so you can access them when wearing a harness, although an extra internal Napoleon chest pocket for valuables would be nice.
I bought this jacket on sale, but it would still be worth it at full price.

Bought this for my girlfriend as she couldn't make her mind up and I'm in the good books!!
We hiked Helvellyn and Striding Edge on Saturday, weather was miserable, pretty strong wind, heavy mist and rain at times but the jacket met and exceeded all expectations.
Thanks for a great product.

Very glad to have finally found a women's waterproof that isn't brown or black and is still of a high quality. I found it very frustrating that a lot of women's jackets don't have enough hood space to have a pony tail and this one does, it's a very small thing that makes quite a big difference. Also a lovely fit and shape and it does the job wonderfully. Very happy with my purchase.

This product is very comfortable and protects you from the elements. It is very lightweight and the underarm zips are a great way to cool down without having to remove the jacket

This product is lightweight and easy packed into your rucksack.
This product is good value for money and does what it says and more.
