Bone-chilling cold is a thing of the past.
Rely on The North Face Men's Aconcagua Down Jacket for durable versatility that keeps you warm with 550-fill down, on or off the mountain. The Aconcagua offers plenty of warmth and protection as a stand-alone jacket, and can also be zipped into compatible shells from The North Face when the weather gets really nasty.
Designed with a durable ripstop exterior that consists of over 50% recycled materials, this rugged down jacket excels at shoveling driveways and layering for winter adventures. The Aconcagua also stows in its own left-hand pocket, which makes it perfect for backpacking. The elastic binding at the cuffs shuts out drafts comfortably, and the drawstring hem lets you wear it loose around the bottom or sealed up tight.

Aconcagua Jacket - No hem cinch cord ?!
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size
The fit and fill-weight of this jacket makes it very versatile: It's just warm enough to wear on it's own in moderately cold temps, or for light activities and it will be a good layering component. However, this jacket is also very light on features compared to other jackets in this price range, most of which are not a big deal like soft fabric in the pockets and on the chin guard. I found out after purchasing that the website had a typo - there is no hem cinch cord, as confirmed by a rep. at TNF.
Omitting a hem cinch cord on a jacket of this type is a serious flaw. The hem fits fairly close to the body, but I feel like a hem cord is essential on a winter jacket and it's pretty hard to overlook that such a key feature is missing - especially at this price point, TNF didn't seem to spend the money anywhere else on the jacket...
Awful jacket for the money
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
- Fit: True to size
This jacket is flimsy. It is so thin that it couldn't possibly keep someone warm. I can't believe the price for such a poor product.
