Description

Lofty warmth without the puffed-up profile.

The down side of a down jacket is that it makes you look like a marshmallow. The North Face fixed that with its Women's Aconcagua Down Jacket. Its diamond-shaped quilted waist gives this jacket a feminine fit while providing 550-fill goose down insulation to provide a luxurious warmth-to-weight ratio (warm without feeling heavy) just like any other down jacket. Its 50D nylon satin twill shell is durable and smooth for easy layering when you want to wear this with a waterproof shell for skiing.

The Aconcagua features elasticized cuffs to keep the sleeves in place and prevent any cold winds from blowing in. You can zip this jacket to The North Face mid-layers for colder conditions. With two secure zip hand pockets, you can warm your hands or stash snacks for later.

  • 50D nylon satin twill shell
  • 550-fill goose down insulation
  • Elasticized cuffs
  • Zip-in compatibility with The North Face garments
  • Two secure zip hand pockets

Not thrilled...

I was so excited to get this as I own several Aconcagua Down Jackets from previous seasons and LOVE them. Not so much on this one. Fits great in shoulder/chest area, but is extremely loose around the bottom. No drawstring like they used to have. No chest pocket like they used to have either. Great looking jacket, but honestly they made it look nicer without keeping the necessities. Also went up in price. Will be returning. So sad.

Perfect

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share
  • Fit: True to size

Lots of snow this year. She loves the warmth and flexibility in this jacket

Stylish buy not functional

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I love the look, color, and fit of the coat. It is very warm. It is true to size and the medium was large enough to fit my very long arms (I am 5'9"). My chief complaint is that it easily snags even though I have been very careful when wearing it. Also the slightest drop of liquid leaves a noticeably stained look.

Hot stuff!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

Bought this item for a few of the ladies in our office. Maybe they'd have more to complain about if they bought themselves but so far everyone loves it! They report them being quite toasty and super comfy. They look very attractive in my opinion (the jackets, not the ladies, though I'm sure they do too, but I'll try to avoid another harassment lawsuit). Great jacket!

Too stiff

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

I have ordered this but it was so stiff and weird on me. Every time I took it off I had so much static. Returned it. The color is very nice.

Just what I wanted!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

It fits me well, it's warm, I like it a lot! The only thing why i didn't give it 5 stars, it's because it would have been PERFECT with a hoodie.

Gift from my husband

  • Fit: Runs large

Runs big. Had to return for smaller size.

Almost there

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

Nice warm jacket, cut nicely not too boxy. Well made, but could have used cinch cords to pull jacket tight. With that can recommend for casual use, but not for physical, aerobic type activities.

Gift for daughter

I got this for a Christmas gift for my teenaged daughter. She loves it! Just her style...a cool jacket that is not too bulky

Style and Function!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I was trying to choose between this coat and the Patagonia Hi-Loft Down Sweater. In the end, after test driving both, I chose this jacket.
Here is why: This jacket is warm enough with proper layering, and I live in an extremely cold climate. It is fashionable. You don't look like the Michelin Man wearing it. It is long enough to cover to about the middle of your butt (or my butt, at least). It zips into my TNF waterproof shell. It is more unique than the standard down coat.

The cons: It doesn't stuff into a little stuff sack like the Patagonia. The fabric takes a little getting used to. Without layering, it isn't as warm as the Patagonia. No inside pocket.

A couple of notes: When you remove this jacket from the plastic, it has a super weird feel. This goes away, otherwise it would have been a dealbreaker for me.
I wore this on a walk in 0 degree weather and it was plenty warm with a marino wool baselayer and sweatshirt on underneath.
The fit is probably true to TNF sizing. I am 5'3", 130 lbs, small frame with a bubble butt. The small fit as well as anything does - a little bigger on the top than I'd prefer in order to fit my bottom. Such is life.

Too thin

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

I tried on last year's version of the Aconcagua jacket on and loved it but decided to purchase the new and "improved" style. I like the shape of the quilting but the jacket seems much thinner than the previous version and runs big. I'm not sure this jacket will keep you very warm unless you layer quite a bit underneath.

Weird fabric

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

The jacket was a medium and the fit is to small am not a big person-5'5'' , 140#. The fabric has an almost metallic feel to it am sending it back

Amazing jacket amazing price!

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Bought this for my girlfriend online here after buying it locally for about $80 more. I returned that jacket and got the same exact one here. So far it has done amazing and looks really good on her. The temperatures lately have been hovering around 10 degrees Fahrenheit and no complaints. The best feature of this is that it looks slim and not puffy as most winter jackets do but still is extremely warm.

This is lightweight, but

  • Fit: Runs large

I had tried on a friend's (in the mango, which is adorable) size large, and knew it wasn't very puffy for a down coat. I usually wear a small. I ordered a medium in the gray for my daughter. She loved the color, stitching, and quality, but though she wears one size bigger than me, it was still too big. The sleeves seem long. We will exchange for a small and hope it's a good fit.

Not what I expected...

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: True to size

Nice looking jacket, but very thin. Not much down fill at all. I had assumed that this was a nice "cold weather" coat; however, this coat seems to be more appropriate for spring/fall. (40-50 degree weather)
