The North Face designed the Women's Brooklyn Down Jacket to tackle Mother Nature's nastiest mood swings and the high-fashion crowd's tallest demands all at once. What makes this design even nicer is that, unlike those trendy ultra-high-fashion jackets, the Brooklyn's classic look has already stood the test of time and will continue to look good for years to come.

While the Brooklyn's timeless styling is what first made you fall in love, it's the waterproof breathable shell and down insulation that will make you stay that way. The shell is The North Face's tough HyVent 2L fabric, which is waterproof and breathable to repel rain and snow without stifling you. The recycled polyester taffeta lining is super-soft against your skin, so you can wear the Brooklyn with a short-sleeve shirt if you want. Of course, the feature that you'll love the most is the warm, yet lightweight 550-fill down insulation, which locks in the warmth to keep you comfortable on the coldest windiest days.

The North Face gave the Brooklyn removable faux fur hood trim, so you can change your look from one day to the next. The matching-fabric belt gives the Brooklyn a more flattering, feminine shape. Hidden stretch mittens integrated into the cuffs prevent frozen fingers when you forget your gloves, and plenty of pocket space makes it easy to bring your essentials along.

Bought 2 years ago!

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit:True to size

I live in South Korea where the winters are almost 6 months long and I absolutely love this jacket. On colder days I pair it with a fleece but other times I just wear it alone. The belt helps carve out my figure...which doesn't leave me looking like a block. I bought and extra large but I feel like a large would've been great as well. I have big bust as well as large hips, but this jacket sometimes feel like it is too large for me. Overall great purchase! It is still my go-to jacket!

Works well in 25F/-3C weather

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

I'm currently living in a small town 50km south of Paris, France. The temperature ranges from 25F - 55F (-3C - 13C) and this jacket keeps me so warm through this range of temperatures. While I haven't taken it into a colder, more snowy region, I imagine it will hold up just fine. Fits snug and the belt helps me feel more feminine and less like a snowman.

This coat has gone through two Chicago winters with me now. It fits well (not too much extra room for layers) and is pretty cute. My main critique is the level of warmth it provides. I have found that even with layers underneath, the cold cuts right through the shoulders. I have been wearing it this past week (the wind chills have been in the mid-20s) and it's just not cutting it. For more mild temps (mid-30s+, no wind) I think this does the job, but for anything lower, not so much. I'm now shopping around for something that can truly keep me warm this winter...

Stylish for the Windy City

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

I gifted this jacket for a friend of mine who lives in Chicago. Winter in the windy city can get real cold but the jacket can definitely handle it. This jacket in the photo is a size medium. The length fits perfectly on my 5'9" friend. Not too fitted so there's definitely room for layers/thicker sweaters to wear underneath.

Fabulous quality but runs small

  • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit:Runs small

Although it runs smaller than I would like, I am keeping it since I am losing weight and then would have to buy a smaller size. I love that I won't need to layer up with multiple sweaters. It is a beautiful sty;e in Navy.

Warm and stylish!

Having just moved to the wintery North from Atlanta, a really warm coat was an absolute must. This coat is long enough to cover my rear without being so long that it impedes motion. The adjustable belt a) keeps it from looking like a sleeping bag and b) helps keep it in close contact with my waist, making it warmer. The fur around the hood looks nice, and is removable if it's not your thing. Overall, a great warm jacket!

Simple Amazing!

  • Fit:True to size

I read so many reviews on every website you can imagine about this coat. I live in North Dakota and winters here are crazy cold. This coat lives up to everything i thought it would. I am petite so the xsmall is perfect and it fits slim like i was hoping. It is wonderful quality and not bulky at all. And the best part, its warm! Worth every penny. and backcountry did a wonderful job at shipping my item same day of order, and i ordered around 9 pm!! Wonderful staff!

Fabulous Coat, Fabulous Customer Service

I ordered the XS and it was too small, but ordered the S and it fit just right!! I am 5"2 110lbs and needed the extra room to accommodate sweaters and chunky scarves to brave the harsh Midwest winters. The faux fur is high quality and doesn't pick or fall off, the outer shell is soft and dense, and the belt buckle doesn't pop off. Back Country Gearhead, Andrew R, was amazingly helpful in my exchange process. He made it quick and easy and answered any questions I had via chat!

Will the black ink green color be coming back into stock in a size L?

We don't have any more on order in that size and color. We do have more in Black on order - expected to arrive within the next few weeks. If you are dying to have that green color, I would recommend getting in touch with our group sales department - they take care of special orders!

Let me know if you have any other questions!

does this coat have two zippers? ... one to zip up from the bottom?

im trying to decide between this one and the Lolë Stowe Down Jacket - any input would be greatly appreciated!!

The description says the coat has a zip off hood, hidden stretch mittens and a media pocket. I looked at this coat elsewhere and it does not have these features. Will you check to make sure your coat does? I don't want to have to return the coat if it isn't as described.

I checked my coat I just got for these features, and it has all of them! You can't see them in the pictures, but they are there! (: Zip off hood, media pocket (on the right side of jacket). Im not positive what stretch mittens are but there is a black warm band around the wrists of the jacket, its hard to explain, but it looks like it will keep cold from coming up your arms.

is it a very low temperature coat? like -40 or under?

Best Answer

Coats don't have temperature ratings because people do different things while wearing them...

BUT... in a word: No. The Brooklyn Jacket is not made for that sort of temperature extreme.

What are you planning? Would help to know what activity you'll be doing at that temperature? And where?
