I have a couple Northface jackets (a winter coat, fleece, raincoat) and then most recently purchased this one. This is by far my favorite. I bought the white and was a little weary, and it does occasionally get dirty, but washes completely clean! It is really warm by itself, and the hood is a great bonus. I bought a medium, and although it is a little big, do not mind at all since i layer a lot. Backcountry.com had the best deal on this by about 30 bucks anywhere else too!
