The North Face Discontinued This Jacket in November 2016.
The North Face Tech-Osito Jacket is a "technical" version of the popular Osito 2 Jacket. This model has side stretch panels for reduced bulk, similar to our Editors' Choice winner, The North Face Radium Hi-Loft - Women's, as well as the Patagonia R2 Jacket - Women's. It's made of a thick pile rachel fleece, which keeps you warm and toasty and potentially looking like a Muppet, depending on what color you choose. This fleece has a more tailored fit than The North Face Denali Jacket - Women's and is great for layering under your ski jacket in the winter, or for looking fabulous as you hit the après ski scene. It's not as breathable as some of the lightweight fleeces that we tested, so if you need something for aerobic activities in cold weather, check out our Top Pick for Breathability, the Patagonia R1 Hoody - Women's. This jacket is a great deal though, and its stylish cut, multiple uses and reasonable price tag resulted in us giving it our Best Buy award.
