Retro, practical, comfortable.
The colors are great, the many pockets are perfect, and I have been camping out in this for the cold spring months in Utah. Super warm, LOVE the fit. First down coat that is flattering that I have owned. I have yet to be in the snow in it, but overall comfortable, stylish, and practical.
warm and cozy
I ordered the brown option, and the colors are true to the picture except more matte than glossy. I live on the coast in Northern California, and a down jacket is often the perfect layer for the cool marine layer and foggy nights. This coat repels moisture, it literally beads on the jacket, so it was great in a light rain. I got it to replace my 6 year old michelin man down jacket, that was not flattering at all. The cut is great. i ordered the small one first, and I ended up returning it for the medium due to the slightly longer arms and room for an additional layer under the jacket. I am 5'7, 130 with longer than average arms so finding a jacket that actually stays at my wrists is always a plus. This coat has cuffs at the ends of the sleeves, so it really creates that nice coverage and I can tuck my hands in if I want. i didn't give it five stars because the waist band is a bit odd. it is just long enough that, I don't know whether to tuck it under or leave it out. I imagine if I wear it snowboarding I will be happy with the longer waistband, Really minor though. I love this jacket.

My measurements are Bust: 36" Waist: 24", Hips: 36.5". I have a long torso so I normally like longer length. Is there room enough to layer under a small or should I go with a medium because of bust size? Thanks!
My measurements are just a few inches smaller than yours, mainly the bust area and I got a small, and probably only a thin layer underneath would work for me. I would recomend medium if you are planning on layering a lot. Love the coat though.
Does anyone know how long this jacket...
Does anyone know how long this jacket is?
Hi. The actual North Face website does not state a length either. But judging from Kasha's comments and another web retailer which has photos of the Jitterbug on a model, it does seem to cover the bum area. Check out this :
See if this is long enough for you.
this is the very best ski coat i've ever had.
it kept me warm in loveland this week with a negative windchill and blowing snow!
i skied all last winter in this coat. warm and tough. everyone loves its look. has the look of my childhood ski jacket but 21st cent features. body is awesome long length that looks like retro short but is really quite long and keeps the snow out!
Can I get ski pants that match the blue...
Can I get ski pants that match the blue jitterbug down jacket? Need to be sturdy for hiking and climbing, baggy fit and have good vents. Would like the blue but could go for pink or yellow, just something that matches exactly.
