Almost perfect but....
I am very picky with my jackets as I get hot a lot but also don't like to freeze. Before this I had the Mcmurdo which was very bulky hard to move about in & that thing just made me sweat even in a t-shirt! This jacket is how every nice and warm but does not make me sweat. Even in 18* temp in NY I was just wearing a collared shirt under this jacket & it kept me nice and comfortable, not cold at all. The only two complains I have is, the fur in the hood is just plain stupid because you wont be able to see through them unless this jacket came with rear view mirrors! They should have made the hood a little smaller then add the fur part so its more practical and it doesn't cover the whole face. But the jacket works fine for me since I took the fur part out. Also the zipper is ridiculous! SHAME ON YOU NORTHFACE!! They want to charge us so much money for a jacket at least put in a proper zipper & don't rip us off!! That's the two reasons I gave it a 4 star but other than that this is a really good jacket. Hopefully next year they will fix these issues and it will be the perfect jacket. But as always got excellent service from backcountry! One of my favorite stores on the internet, I am always bragging to my friends about it.
