Description

Have it all.

You love the way a hardshell can stand up to the harshest of weather, but you hate the stiff, crispy feel; you also really hate that you feel like you're trapped in a sauna when you work up a sweat. The North Face Jammu Softshell Jacket seals out precipitation and wind but is totally breathable so your body can regulate its temperature and keep you feeling good.

  • Polartec NeoShell protects you like a waterproof hardshell but has the feel and flexibility of a softshell
  • Fully taped seams keep water from working in between the stitching
  • Athletic fit means there isn't extra fabric to get in the way of ropes and harnesses
  • Adjustable, helmet-compatible hood swivels with your head to maximize your field of vision
  • Harness-compatible pockets sit high on your body so you can get to that granola bar when you're strapped in

Comfortable for 3 seasons.

This has got to be one of the few pieces of clothing The North Face has produced in recent times that is actually really excellent. I got it in the Noah Green and think it looks stylish and distinctive without being gaudy and screaming "I'm going mountaineering" which is great when you want to wear it around town as a regular piece of clothing.

I just got back from a very brisk walk around town to run some errands, light rain and around 55F. I wore nothing under it other than a polyester t-shirt and I was comfortable, never felt like I was getting clammy despite having the jacket zipped tight so the only ventilation was through the NeoShell fabric. If I can be comfortable doing some light cardio in 100% humidity on a warmish day it really says something about the capability of the jacket to regulate your environment without needing to resort to pit zips or even open pockets.

The North Face has lost some of it's reputation for producing high quality technical gear in favor of catering to the mall crowd, but I think the Jammu Jacket proves that somebody there still knows what they're doing and cares.

The only negative I can assign this jacket is that it is cut a bit too "american", I'm 5'11 and around 165lbs and find it fits way too loose around the midsection in size M where Arc'teryx for example will fit in a much more natural way for my body type. I suppose this leaves a lot of room for bulking up with down if you want but I would prefer a slimmer cut.

Good, really good, not quite perfect.

I like this piece alot. Solid, durable and functional. Pros: Breatheability, athletic fit, construction, cut to layer, harness/pack pockets, chest pocket, weatherproofness, wrist hook/loop closure, and the nice micro (really micro) fleece lining.
Cons: Not a huge fan of the elastic drawcord hem, which is accessible thru the pocket (this is common with Summit Series pieces). I find that the range of adjustments is limited. Although, on the plus, the cut is so nice that only minute adjustments are needed. Hood adjustability also seems to be limited when adjusting down to a helmetless head. The elastic drawcords at the neck and back of hood don't run smoothly through their 'tunnels', which seem to limit the adjustments. However the hood is very functional, just not perfect.

For me, the best uses are general mountaineering, winter trekking and ski touring. While I've used ice climbing, it's not the best because of the lack of stretch/articulation in the arms/armpit area - I found the sleeves tend to ride up a bit when I'm reaching for a hold.

Fit - the cut is made for layering, while still nice and athletic. I'm 6' 185lbs and the medium fits very well. I would buy again.

Good Jacket

I have had this jacket for a while and it is a great jacket but it really isn't a truly wind proof jacket. It does everything else as advertised. Nice looking also.

NeoShell isn't 100% windproof, like you mention. It is slightly air permeable, which enhances the breathability.

a great jacket

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

This is my 2nd Polartec Neoshell jacket--the best material that is waterproof and breathes. The jacket is very comfortable and handy for everyday wear in our Pacific NW rain. For me (5'9", 165 lb) the body is somewhat large. Also the zipper is too small for an outdoor jacket--would like to see a YKK 5 or 10. Overall, a great jacket!

So does this have a vislon or PU coated zips? I can't remember since I looked at it. Thanks.

Responded on

No it doesn't - It's a great jacket otherwise but shame on North Face for not PU coating the zip's on a $399 jacket. Neoshell is however an awesome fabric but in my experience is not 100% windproof (not advertised as such).

Underrated

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've waited for a good storm to wear this jacket in order to give it a true review. This coat does everything they say it does and feels great. It's waterproof and completely blocks the wind, and I'm talking sustained winds of 45 mph with gusts even higher. I really like how light weight it is. I did have a good mid layer under it and stayed very warm. The North Face life time warranty is awesome.

I ordered this and returned. I ordered a small and it was still a little loose fit. This does not have pit zips as TNF site says?. I guess you can use the hand pockets to vent because of the mesh inside. Is this what they mean by pit zips? Material feels nice, it is thin and soft. I didn't test it out because I didn't want to use and return, but I may buy if I can get a good sale. With this type of advanced fabric, you can't review it without actually putting it through some tests. I am 5'10" 140lbs 38" chest, 29" waist. Not quite as trim fit as I like but as I said, I may buy again if price is right. I got the Noah green and it is darker than the picture.

hegaveitall, I can confirm: The jacket I tried DID NOT have pit zips as well. Yes, you can use the pockets to dump heat, but that isn't proper pit zips. Hoping the thing is so breatheable that they aren't needed!

Do you expect to have these back in stock...

Hey Patrick,
