Everyone knows that the best snow happens when the temperatures drop well into the uncomfortably cold range. The North Face Gatebreak Down Jacket is your ticket to the white room this season.

There's even an adjustable snap-down powder skirt with gripper elastic and an adjustable hem.

eggxcellent....

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs large

I have been very happy wearing it just about every day this winter, including several near-zero days. Below 15-20 with a sweater this puppy is more than enough, and it does well keeping out the breeze too.

5'8" about 150lbs and the small leaves plenty of room for layering underneath, maybe a bit on the loose side still.

Lots of pockets and the powder skirt will be nice when I move closer to the mountains this year!

Great Buy

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

Perfect affordable down jacket that has some extra bells and whistles like an internal snow skirt for skiing. Jacket is ridiculously warm. Have worn it in single digits and felt fine. I wouldn't say that it fits large but it does go a little long, especially compared to it's brother the Nuptse. Probably fits that way for hitting the slopes.

I also snagged it the other day on a bolt at work while walking around and the jacket didn't rip or tear. Would say it passed the durability test. (As where I've found the Nuptse to tear easy).

Great Buy

This is very interesting. I has thought that North Face's quality was faltering. For a long time they traded on their brand, but did little to improve quality. Unbelievable picture!!

@Lexi Wow! Easy to take good photos when the canyon does all the work! That was at the Hualapai Hilltop on the way to Havasu Falls (Very far Western Gran Canyon).

@sta TNF is hit and miss. I've used a myriad of brands in my short 14 years of outdoor recreation, but TNF always ends up remaining my favorite. All of their Summit Series equipment is top notch though.

Is the lining made of fleece? Is there a hood?

Responded on

There's a hood and the lining is a warm style nylon. This is a great jacket for the price. Extremely warm. Have seen complaints that it fits a bit long, but I think it's because it's meant to be a ski jacket.

This jacket was a great buy. I picked one up on sale about 1.5 years ago in glo green. Great addition to my lineup for those cold mornings when I am getting started and especially if I may be outside but not necessarily too active. The 550 is a great level of insulation. I do wish there was one or two more pockets on the inside of the chest for a few more small personal items. Still haven't taken it skiing yet but feel confident it would keep me warm on the coldest of days (no pit zips to dump heat tho). I went with a large (I am 5'10" and 190) and I have plenty of room for layering if desired.
