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.

I used to own the Mcmurdo in M (I'm 5'6 135lbs)which I used to sweat in especially under my arms and back wearing only a T-shirt when its 20*-28* out side. I really like the whole style and look of the Gotham but what I wanted to know is will I also sweat in the Gotham? My idea is to stay warm and not sweat. Also how much does the Mcmurdo in M weigh? So I can do a comparison with this one.

The jacket has a nice look to it & is really warm but its not breathable at all. I live in NY & even when its in the 20's & I have just a t-shirt on with the zipper fully open I am still sweating. Its far too heavy and uncomfortable to even move your arms in this jacket, its like trying to walk around with the heaviest thick blanket around you. The hood is just a joke it does not work at all. It was my first time buying a north face jacket & I usually wear a size XL in different brands. I bought this jacket in 2007 & spoke to one of the gear heads & told him I was 5'6 & weigh about a 135-140lbs & he suggested I go for a medium. When I got the medium in mail it was it was big & fitted me more like a large. I called back and wanted to to change it for a size small but it was all sold out & I got this jacket at a very good sale price so it wasn't worth the refund. I called and spoke to one of the gear heads named Greg & he said whenever I decided to return this jacket no matter how long backcountry.com would take care of the return shipping as I was suggested the wrong size by the gear head. I tried getting a size small again next year but it was sold out again as it seems to be the size that sells out the most. Now when I am trying return this jacket for a different one backcountry.com says since its been 3 years they are not responsible for the returning shipping. So I am a little bummed about how first I was suggested the wrong size & now they're even refusing the return shipping, guess I will have to take care of that myself. Bottom line is if your in the east coast this jacket might not be the one for you & you might wanna down size as the Mcmurdo does run pretty large.
