The hood is adjustable so you can cinch it down when the winds really start to blow, and it's also removable so you can ditch it when the sun's out. Integrated hidden stretch mittens prevent frozen fingers when you forget your gloves, and an internal media pocket and cord guide let you enjoy your tunes while you explore the city.

Hi there,
We do not have any more of this model ordered to come into stock at this time, we probably won't be getting any in until next season. Sorry about that!

Will you be getting in any more of these coats in XL.. any color?

I am sorry, at this time we do not have any vendor orders for new inventory.

  • Fit: Runs small

oh my god, this parka runs small. I ordered an ExtraSmall and it fits super snugged on me. I am a petite woman 5'1. DD bust Size, Size 4 in pants size. I have the North Face Metropoloish 600 jacket in Extra Small and I can fit into a girls XL large arctic parka. I spoke to a north face representative and he told me that I should fit an XS if that was the case. Well....I could zip up the jacket. I can put the sweaters in my arctic parka and still zip it up, but I feel super snug in them like really really SNUG. in comparison to my metropolis 600. However, this is definitely warmer than my Metro 600 since it has a protected sleeve layer and a great hood that can protect me from the Michigan Wind Chill.

Will you be getting more of this jacket in black (or graphite grey) soon?

Unanswered Question

Does the moonlight white jacket have black cuffs like the picture shown, or are the cuffs white like the rest of the parka?

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

We returned the large for an extra large for more arm room. Really nice quality and warmth. Enough coverage to thighs. This coat is used walking on cold Manhattan streets. Great customer service.

Will you have this jacket in urban navy?

Responded on

Looks like we had a few but sold through our inventory super fast! Sorry but we do not have any more on order! Give us a call or hit up a gearhead on Live Chat if you'd like help finding a similar item!

Will you be getting the black or graphite gray in XL anytime soon?

Hey hea5745631,

Yes, we will be getting more of both colors in stock some time around early to mid January.

Not perfect but still decent parka

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

I ordered the black parka with black fur and got the one with grey fur. Not a huge deal but it was annoying to purchase a $300 parka and not get what was expected. I still like it though.
I moved to work in the Arctic and I live in an area that can get very windy. Some things I noticed:
-the zipper is on the opposite side to what most women's clothing is
-the parka has two zippers stacked and you have to get the zipper into both and sometimes you have to fiddle with it and it's a bit awkward
-the hood doesnt cinch so when it's windy, it feels like it'll blow down and it's not as warm for that reason
Otherwise it's a warm, seemingly well designed parka. Nice style and cozy.

Will you be getting this in black or graphite in size Small anytime soon?

Hi there,
We are expecting both colors to come in that size- we do not have an exact arrival date, but from the looks of it they should hopefully be in within the next week or two!

Fabulous parka, but does run small

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small

I know that North Face products tend to run small (from previous experience), so I bought a Large. I am 5'9'' and 140 lbs, the Large was a perfect fit- with room for a sweater underneath. It fit my arms, bust, and lower half like it was tailored for me.

I ordered the TNF Black, which comes with a darker brown (not black) fur trip. The hood comes down low on the face, which is perfect for cold, windy days. It ends about 3 inches above my knees (because I'm tall it is not "knee length").

I had a Miss Metro North Face parka before this, and I think the Arctic is much sleeker and less puffy. It is also just as warm!

Hope these descriptions help!

Other perks:
- the shipping was very speedy! I received my package 46 hours after placing my order.
- Originally, the Large was sold out when I went to order it. The BC staff were very helpful and alerted me when the next shipment was going to be in. Kudos to the staff!

Great coat, does not run big

  • Fit: True to size

Do not listen to the reviewers below. Perhaps it is because I am smaller chested, but this coat fits as it should, if is a bit big, so I would go with your normal size or smaller. Had to exchange a small for an XS (5'4", 125 lbs). I love the coat - Mimics the Canada Goose in style, and very warm. Simple but perfect for NE weather!

Toasty coat for NYC

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

I bought this mostly for weekends outdoors with kids and so far, so good. It's not as warm as I expected, but it's fine if you're moving around. The fit is definitely a bit odd: long in the arms with a snug bulky upper body, but from the waist down, it flares a bit so it looks kind of like a gorilla in a dress. The real downside is cold wind sneaks underneath. And the pockets aren't as insulated as I hoped. The upside is it's also waterproof and dust and grass brush right off.

Parka bad fit for me

  • Fit: Runs large

I found that the hips of this jacket are very large - too large for me . It looked like it was made for a very curvy figure - which I do not have.

TNF Arctic Down Parka - SIZE UP!

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

Was so excited when this coat arrived! Unfortunately, the fit is terrible (I used the NF sizing guide). The look and the length of the coat and sleeves are great , and I can tell it's very warm (I was sweating wearing it around the house). But, it fits so tightly under the armpits and lower back, and oddly bunches up in the back if you have any sort of butt. Forget about if you want to wear anything other than a t-shirt under as well. I put on a big bulky sweater to test it out, and I could barely zip the thing up, it was hard to move or breathe, and I looked like a stuffed sausage! I am 5'10, 135lbs and a size 2, and the size S didn't work at all. DEFINITELY SIZE UP!!! I am returning and now the coat is out of stock. Boo! Hopefully the black size M will come back sometime soon! (judging from the comment below, sounds like it's a good possibility)

Are you getting this jacket in black.

Responded on


We do have a vendor order of new inventory on the way. In that order is a fair amount of the TNF black colorway. They should be on the site available for purchase mid-late December.

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

I have been looking for a knee length down coat to hopefully make the frigid Wisconsin winters a little more tolerable. I really wanted a Canada Goose, but really didn't want to pay that much for a winter coat. I have several TNF jackets and when I saw this coat, I was hopeful that it would be what i was looking for. I ordered a large based on another review that said a medium was too tight for a someone that wears a size 6, and other TNF jackets that I have fit kind of tight in a medium. Well, this coat is huge. Two of me could have fit into this thing, and the sleeves were a good 2 inches too long. I felt like Nanook of the North, with no style at all. It's going right back in the box and going back tomorrow. Sad.

It's great that we "customers" have a voice to share our opinions and experience with your products. However, it's frustrating when I read 1 review claiming it's "too small" and the next one says, it's" huge!"Confusion factors in and I wind up passing on the item all together. Not good for anyone.
Maybe you could add a notation, "runs big, small,etc." alongside your products. As you know, sizing is the most difficult part of buying on line. Every little hint helps. Confusion hinders.
