AJ M.wrote a review of The North Face Aconcagua Down Jacket - Women's on December 28, 2012
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
This jacket works well on a 40 degree dry day. Any colder and you are in trouble. The jacket is not waterproof after the first hand wash/dry. The zipper is a flimsy plastic that does not hold up. I have 2 broken zippers on brand new N.F. jackets. The pockets of down seem to bunch up causing spots to be more vulnerable to the cold air. I purchased 6 North Face Jackets for the whole family. I purchased 1 North Face and 1 Karbon for myself at the same price. I am giving all the North Face jackets to good will and/or returning. I will be replacing them all with Karbon for the same price but 3 times the jacket. I will never buy this type of down jacket or another North Face product again. There is a reason why you see North Face more in malls than the slopes!
