Not an XS- BC return policy sucks.

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small

Mfg. changed design- not an XS anymore. Poor shoulder design. Charged for return. Not acceptable. Will not buy from Backcountry anymore.

Buyer's remorse

  • Fit: Runs small

I procrastinated too long and passed the 30 day return period and regret keeping the coat. It does shed feathers as others have said and it's annoying to pick feathers off clothes, furniture, etc. Hopefully it slows down, but I'm not expecting it from what I've experienced so far.
The coat is warm but not for temps in the teens and single digits. It's more fashion than function. I wish I had bought the Patagonia.

I bought the north face tnf metropolis parka about a week ago. It fits great but the reason I do not give it a 5 is because the filling (feathers) is coming out of every seam and it is covered in white over black and it looks awful. For the price I paid, I don't think it should be doing this. Is it defective? Should I return it?

A few feathers here and there is pretty normal, but what you just said sounds pretty excessive! That does sound like a manufacturer defect. I'd hit up one of our customer service gearheads on live chat or give us a call and we can figure out what to do!!

Pretty, but too tight

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

I wish I coul give give this coat 5 stars but I can't. The description says it is a slimmer fit, but it runs small. I wear a size 8 and it is tight with a cotton blouse only. If I were to put on a sweater I would be like the boy on A Christmas Story! ( Ok maybe that's a stretch) I had to return it. I love the look and the color. It is pretty. I'm not exchanging it because I think the cut is too tight. My search for the perfect warm long down coat continues.

I bought this jacket after thinking about it for an entire year. I am so happy I bought it before my size and color were sold out (like usual.) I cannot wait for it to be cold so I can wear it, I bought a medium which is the size as my other The North Face jackets and it fits perfectly...the size chart told me to order a large but I'm glad I didn't. SO happy with this purchase, definitely worth the money!

I just bought tnf metropolis parka from you. All is fine with shipping etc, but the down is coming out of every seam almost, I have not worn the coat yet and it is covered in white over black and it looks awful. At this rate I might be wearing just the nylon shell at the winters end. What is going on? Will it stop? Is it defective?

Hey Tamara,
A small amount of down leakage is common in any down piece. However, you should not experience excessive down loss with this jacket or any other quality piece.
If you want to give me a call at 1-800-409-4502 ext 4446 or email at I would be glad to discuss this further with you and get you taken care of.
