Perfect for my 9yr old daughter.

  • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit:Runs small
  • Size Bought: 10-12

Before purchasing this jacket for my daughter, I read a lot of reviews. As I am a North Face Fan, I decided to go with it but went with a size up than I normally would. I couldn't be happier with the purchase. The quality is exceptional, and the funky design is just what my daughter likes.

Sleeves too short

  • Familiarity:I returned this product before using it
  • Fit:Runs small

I bought a size youth XL (18) for my 13 year old daughter who is 5'5. I thought for sure it would fit with room to grow. The sleeves are abnormally short on this jacket. There were a few down feathers coming out when I got the jacket as well. Pretty color but have to return because the fit is off.

The jacket is just beautiful

    The jacket is just beautiful and feels soft and warm, hwr I thing the one I got had the wrong number as I usually by North face stuff and the sizes are accurate, this one is way too small. I assume it was a mistake.

    I would give a five for the jaquet but will need to return due to wrong number.

    • Fit:Runs small

    I ordered my daughter a L and worried about the sleeve comments in the reviews. XL wasn't available as an option. I did measure her, though. Still, the jacket arrived, and the sleeves were obviously too short. I am returning it.

    Worth $

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit:Runs small

    Daughter loves the jacket because it's warm and provides a slim appearance. Most winter coats/jackets are bulky and make you look wide but this one is slimming. Must have. Do wish they would make the sleeves longer. North Face sleeves, across the board, run a tad short compared to other jacket brands. Would purchase again from Backcountry. Color/size was sold out everywhere else but Backcountry came through with flying colors - received quickly, also.

    Great looking warm jacket

    • Fit:Runs small

    I bought the metallic silver/passion pick for my daughter and she loves it so much. It is very light and warm so it's perfect over a hoodie. Shipping was very fast even 3 days before Christmas.

    Great looking & warm

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    My daughter wanted a puffy (but not TOO puffy) down jacket and this one is perfect. It is slim fitting, and attractive but definitely still a down jacket, with all the warmth. She stood outside waiting for the bus in 20 degree weather, and said she was just as warm as sitting in the car. She wears a size 10, and I order the L. It fits perfectly. There's even a little room to grow.

    Looks good and keeps warm

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    Got this for my daughter who loves blue so got her the Turquoise Blue - color looks nice and cheerful. Ordered in Large but had to return it and get an XL because the sleeves were too short and the jacket quite snug. I would suggest going up a size.

    She likes it and has been wearing it everyday to school - and since it's been sub zero temperatures for us this winter I'm really glad she has this jacket. She has spent countless hours playing in the snow and stayed warm and dry. I don't think it's puffy but she wishes it was even less puffy.

    Picky Daughter Loves this Jacket

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    My daughter was refusing to wear her Lands End ski jacket to school claiming it was too bulky. She's been wearing the jacket for two straight weeks and not one complaint to date. Initially, I bought a size L based on the reviews that it runs small, but it was too big. She's a size 10-12 on top. The medium works well.

    2nd Year with this coat

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    Bought this for my daughter last year - size 10/12. Lightweight to carry around, and warm enough - but even better with a fleece underneath on those days below freezing. Might want to size up to be able to accomodate one. It *is* fitted. Sleeves are a little short, but it fits everywhere else. Size 14/16 (next size up) is far too big. Gloves cover up any exposed areas.

    Nice Jacket

      This jacket looks a lot better in real life than on the picture. Unfortunately it was too small for my niece. It seems to be a small fitting jacket compared to other North Face items we have. Have to return, I do like the backcountry return policy, it make me feel confident in ordering from them. Thank you!

      Like the jacket a lot. The only issue with it is the sleeves are a bit short. My daughter is a tall somewhat lanky 12 year old and I am glad that I got the XL or else I am afraid the sleeves would have been more like a 3/4 sleeve.

      Great coat!

      • Familiarity:I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

      I bought this coat for my 11-year-old daughter who doesn't like "puffy" coats. This coat is super warm without the bulk and my daughter loves it. It's great to finally have a winter coat that she actually wants to wear. And, it looks great, too!

      Great jacket...Great service!!

      I purchased the girl's North Face Aconcagua jacket for my niece for Christmas and I was very pleased. She loved it!!! I own two of these jackets and the quality is superb. They are very warm and comfortable, and I have had no issues with any of the zippers on the girl's North Face jackets I purchased for two of my nieces last year, or both of mine. The only issue I had was with the sizing. There isn't a straight 16, just a 14-16 which was too small. Thanks to Backcountry's efficient service, they exchanged the jacket immediately for an 18 and honored the sale price. I wouldn't hesitate to order from them again!!

      Zippers on two of these jackets broke

      • Familiarity:I've used it several times

      As cute as these jackets were for my two girls, the zippers had issues on both. I bought a Spyder jacket to replace one and am trying a Patagonia of similar style to replace the other. My girls prefer the North Face brand because "that's what kids are wearing", but for quality, I was disappointed in these. I have had no issues in my North Face women's jackets that I own. Not sure what is going on with the zippers in these?

      Where can I get a white North Face Down vest for girls?

      Careful to keep in mind, often times 'white' down jackets can be somewhat see-thru...that is, the down may show through and look rather dingy...but this isn't always the case with every white down jacket...will depend on material they are using.

      I have the NF Aconcagua. I've had it for a couple of winters and it is honestly the warmest coat/jacket I have ever had. I love it and I am buying one for my little girl right now. I don't know about the Inverse, so I can't say how they compare. Hope this helps!
