Prepared for unpredictability.

The North Face Gotham is a shorter, lighter-weight version of the famous McMurdo Parka. While the McMurdo offers a bit more protection at the waist, the Gotham's lighter weight makes it a bit more on-the-go friendly. The Gotham is equipped with The North Face's legendary HyVent 2L waterproof breathable laminate and genuine down insulation, and can be found anywhere the weather is expected to take an unexpected dive.

The North Face started the Gotham with its legendary HyVent 2L waterproof laminated to a tough nylon faille weave for complete storm protection. Inside all that nylon, the Gotham is packing a goose-worth of 550-fill down insulation to lock in the warmth. To lock out drafts, the jacket has adjustable cuffs and a cinch-cord at the waist. The fixed hood comes equipped with removable faux fur trim for style. The jacket also comes with a ton of pocket space. Two large chest pockets, two hand pockets, a sleeve pocket, and an internal media pocket with guide for your headphone cord allow you to comfortably carry your stuff around.

  • Tough nylon main body fabric with HyVent 2L laminate
  • Recycled polyester lining with water-repellant treatment for quick-drying
  • Lightweight,compressible 550-fill down insulation
  • Regular fit, waist-length
  • Fixed hood with removable faux fur trim
  • Polyester lining with water-repellant treatment
  • 2 hand pockets, 2 chest pockets, 1 sleeve pocket, 1 internal media pocket

The truth

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

I live in chicago. I ordered this jacket and received it two days later and it does the job, it looks great, it feels great. The faux fur is kind of flashy but if you're not a fan it is also removable for me it depends on the occasion. Runs a little big so if you usually wear xl.... I suggest you order a large. Overall I'm pleased with the jacket, bought my wife one and she loves it and will buy more for the rest of the family.. very helpful customer service and very professional. I don't go ANYWHERE else for my winter gear!!

Any chance you can take the following measurements:


I'd guess based on your height and weight you'd be looking at a medium but the best and most accurate way to tell would be some chest and waist measurements.

My husband's favorite coat.

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

I bought this for my husband and he loves this coat. He initially bought it thinking he would remove the fur hood, but he loves that part too. Looks really great on him and is super warm.

The fixed hood on this jacket is really nice. Very Very warm. Fits true to size.

Received the Gotham jacket with a damaged button. I was advised a replacement would be sent, only to get an impersonal email three days later advising me the coat was sold out. Now I can't find the coat anywhere. Next time, I'll go straight to North Face to purchase.

we absolutely LOVE this jacket!!!

It fits true to size. Is very warm. Can look casual but the brushed nickel buttons really dress it up. Take the fur off for a less metro look. Very happy with this purchase!

Is there any way I can get the exterior...

Is there any way I can get the exterior measurement (underarm to underarm) of a 4XL? I've read reviews which indicate that this jacket runs small (compared to normal B & T sizing.)

Welcome to Gotham City

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

The North Face Gotham Jacket is toasty warm with a stylish casual look. I'm 6ft 185lb and the large fits me great, with room for layering.

The Faux fur is nice, but removable if it's not your style.

warm jacket

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

This gotham jacket by the north face is very warm, i usually just only wear a tee shirt inside and i am all set. i love to wear this jacket with some jeans fitted hat and casual sneakers. the thing i love about this just is its waterproof, warm and it has very nice pockets, and you can remove the fur.

I need a british khaki in small. Any chance...
