scott duguidwrote a review of The North Face Prism Optimus Down Jacket - Men's on January 7, 2013
Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
this jacket is awesome, so very warm and comfortable, its so lite and comfortable that i really cant feel it when its on! i have worn it in negative 6f wind chills with just a regular T-shirt under it and i was perfectly warm!
my first impression however was "Im sending it back!"
why? because i was not understand the cinch cords! i couldn't figure out how to keep them from automatically just going back after being pulled and having the hood fall back off my head.. but when you grab the concept of the hidden cinch thing's inside the hood! it works great and stay exactly where you draw them to..
at first it felt like i was pulling them so hard they would break and in the end i just went for it and pulled them good and felt them going through and that's when it all stayed to where i pulled them.
so don't be afraid to give them a good ole tug!
the hood is awesome too, its nicely insulated and works wonders.
i would say it has ample pocket space, although the pockets are Not! fleece lined they are however very nice and warm and soft!
im 5'10 160 165 lbs and i have a Large and it fits perfect.
