Has anyone experienced quality issues? I read a few reviews on The North Face website about the jacket saying the coating on the inside wears off easily after a few months.

I've had mine for about a year, still works great. It's possible that the bad reviews come from people who wash theirs too much. I avoid washing mine in the machine. I like to just wipe it off with a wet or soapy rag. If the coating does wear off (which it will eventually) re coating it is not to hard. But my guess is that will take a while to be necessary.

Ive owned mine for 6 months and don't wash it in the machine and it's still peeling away. It isn't waterproof anymore and the condensation builds up in the selves really bad.
