I bought this coat because of the style--slenderizing. The down is on the inside so I don't look like the Michellan Man in it. I also thought the faux fur trim made the jacket look a little dressier than others. The"fur"looks great in the photo, but it's rather cheesy-looking in person. I exchanged the first Brooklyn Jacket because the front part of each side of the "fur" was matted and ratty-looking when I opened the box--looked like someone might have washed it. The second jacket arrived immediately. Each front side of the fur trim was again matted. I like the Brooklyn Jacket so much that I decided to remove the "fur" and keep the coat. The sleeves are nice and long -- not extra long, but not short like most clothing made in Asia. The knit cuffs keep the cold, NY Mountain air out. This coat is really warm! I recommend it. Just know that the faux fur on the jacket you get might look ratty. I think this coat runs a bit small. I wear a Medium in the Transit coat. I bought a Large in the Brooklyn and it's snug. The only reason I didn't rate the jacket 5 stars is because of the "fur" trim.

I am 5'7", 130 lbs, and the SMALL fits nicely and allows enough room for a thick, cozy sweater underneath.
I love the quality and warmth of this jacket. My torso stays warm, even with negative temperature wind chills.
My only complaint is where the belt hits. I'd like it to hit at my natural waist, but it's quite a bit higher than that; more like mid rib cage. As long as I don't cinch the belt, it looks fine. I was hoping for a shape-giving jacket, but I didn't get it with this one. Overall, I liked it enough to keep it.
Good looking jacket but lacking in quality. For a jacket that sells between $280-400 should be better made. It is warm and stylish but the fur trim hood sheds horribly, the buckle of the waist belt is cheap and does not always stay latched tight. The first jacket I purchased had to be returned as the snap button closure had a button rip off in the first week. Good for warmpth but could use better building.

I purchased this jacket for my wife. She is 5'10" and typically wears a large, and this jacket fit very well and looked nice. Unfortunately, the outer shell material of this jacket attracts dust, lint, cat hair, or whatever might be floating in the air within a few feet of it. Once the fabric gets hold of dirt, it does not want to let it go. My wife thought she could make it work, but even a lint roller would not be up to that task. The jacket had to be returned, and next time we will search for a fabric with a smoother face that either does not attract as much dirt, or at least is possible to clean.
it says there is a two layer membrane...can it just be a shell?
Thanks for the question. The North Face Brooklyn Down Jacket is an insulated jacket and cannot convert to a shell as well as the 2 Layer membrane design is referring to the combination of the durable outer layer that repels moisture and protects from abrasion and the inner-layer that has a polyurethane coating and very small pores to channel inner moisture to the outer layer. Both of these layers are sewn together to make the technology work.
If you are looking for something like a 3 in 1 jacket that is similar, look at The North Face Suzanne Triclimate Down Trench Coat which has a similar length and down insulation.

Bought this coat as a suggestion for my daugther attending U of M Nursing School. She absolutely loved the gift and now I know will be toasty warm during our long Michigan winters! I bought a small, it fit perfect. She is 5'4" and 110lbs. There is enough room to wear layers if wanted but its not bulky at all!!!
Bought the North Face women's Artic Parka for my wife...and my wife can't wear it because it creates enough static to light up a small community....looking for one that doesn't zap her
Try tossing the coat into a clothes dryer with a dryer sheet and a damp washcloth. Run on low about 10 minutes. This removes static. Other options: Spray with anti-static mist (supermarkets, drug stores, etc.) or lightly wiping the coat with a dryer sheet. It's so dry here in the Northeast winters that static is everywhere--car seats, carpeting, furniture, in my hair. I lightly swipe a dryer sheet over anything full of static--even my hair.
Reading from previous reviews, I was considering this jacket now should I still? I'm 5 ft short and 110 lbs. Will it be too long and big for me?
is this jacket warm enough for new england winters with just a long sleeve shirt under neath? does it fit snugly so it's hard to layer?
Bostonite here. It'll be great!
I'm extremely pear shaped; much smaller on the top, wider hips and booty. I'm not sure which size to order? Based on the measuring it says I should order an xl. But based on the comments below it saying this jacket runs large. Thoughts? Help please!
I tried this jacket on at The North Face store and it does not run large. If anything I found it ran true to size, if not a bit snuggly. I'm 5'7, ~125 lbs. and the small fit just right.
so I ordered this in a medium, and it was huge. I'm 5'7" and 120lbs. I want to return it, but I'm trying to figure out if I need to get a small or the x-small. I love the jacket, but didn't find the hips very flattering when the jacket was that big!! I've looked at the size chart, and still can't decide. Any suggestions??
I had the same problem! I ordered a large...i am about 5'6 and 150 lbs. and it was HUGE. I am not sure if I should get a medium or small. great coat though!
When you looked at the size chart did it originally tell you to order a size medium? I'm trying to figure out which size to order as well...
Go with the small, we're about the same height and weight. The X-small will be too tight.
