I have the ivory metropolis parka. I washed...
I have the ivory metropolis parka. I washed it for the first time after getting dirty, however, it doesnt seem clean at all. I don't know if my black purse rubbed off or what but it still looks dirty. Any ideas how I can take that stain (?) off? Thank you.
Warm, great fit, have already gotten compliments. Definitely size down.
Very warm, very trendy. Keeps me dry and its very comfortable.
LOVE IT!! It's so versatile!!
I have this parka and it's a lovely piece. I've worn it for about 5 months now and washed it yesterday for the first time. It still looks great! It makes a great raincoat because of the hood and is very warm but will not make you sweat or anything... It has a nice silky feel on the inside. It's a great length, is very flattering and goes with everything I wear, casual or dressy. This was a great investment and I would recommend the Metropolis Parka to anyone! I'm 5'9, 160 and have a Large that fits perfectly, by the way- in case anyone needs sizing help. :)
is the north face metropolis machine...
is the north face metropolis machine washable
YES... I just washed mine yesterday. You wash it seperately on a light cycle- and I done mine twice- the first time it is floating the entire time & the second time it actually washes. You can tumble dry on low as well. I read those instructions right off the inside lower tag yesterday. :)
is the north face metropolis down parka...
is the north face metropolis down parka machine washable
Yes it is machine washable. Just follow the directions on the tag. Then when drying it, dry it alone in the dryer ON LOW HEAT and throw a few tennis balls in with it to loft the down back to full puffiness. Loud but effective!
Best jacket I've had in a long time!
I purchased this jacket in black. I absolutely Love it! We've had a long, cold winter here in Michigan and this jacket is the warmest! I have not been cold in it at all, if anything, I get too warm, and I wear nothing underneath but a regular top. I have been searching every where to purchase another one in brown. This was well worth every penny it cost and I would highly recommend it to anyone.
very easy to move in
I like this coat but wish it had more fill than 600 their has been times when I feel the air go though, so you may have to wear layers at times,it is very easy to move around in,the two way zipper is a good touch
Wonderfully warm down jacket!
This jacket was one of the best investments I could have made in a winter coat. Super warm but not bulky. I ordered the silver color and it is gorgeous. Not obnoxiously shiny at all. Cozy warm on below zero windy Wisconsin winter days!
This jacket is amazing for the winter! The fit is true to size. It keeps you warm, cozy and dry. If you zip it up all the way you don't need a scarf. Winters in Michigan can be brutal, this jacket helps get you through it.
Amazing warm, stylish and light jacket
North Face metropolis Parka is amazing. I purchased a silver one, I look great in it and it is so warm. It's so cold in Toronto (-25C) that I needed something warm to wait for the bus in the morning. I put this coat on with a light scarf and a light sweater and jacket and I am super warm.
This is a good deal.
CUTE BUT AVERAGE IN WARMTH
Stylish and lightweight jacket for city use. I bought it in the Gold color, it looks great for evening and daytime. But this is NOT a technical jacket.
I love this jacket for SF, it's perfect for temp down to 47F and I wear it everyday to work. But when I wear it in colder climates (Wyoming or Washington or NYC), I have to wear another layer or two underneath (ideally windproof fleece or down vest).
The main reason is that this jacket's material is NOT windproof, so the cold air does pass through the down even though it's 600 fill power. Also, there is no inside cuff around the sleeves, so cold air does come up the arms.
Also, the outside fabric while water resistant, is NOT waterproof, so the down inside can get wet through the seems if you wear it in heavy rain.
As for sizing/fit, I'm 5'8" and a size 4-6 and bought both Small and Medium to try, and ended up keeping the Medium. While the small fits well around the body, the sleeves were a tad short and it doesn't leave a lot of room for extra layers underneath. The Medium is a little puffier around the body but much more practical when I wear a layer of fleece underneath.
I was surprised that this jacket was not warmer due to the 600 fill power as I have a Mountain Hardware hip length parka with 600 fill power that is much warmer, but the MH one is waterproof and made with technical fabric while this Northface parka is really more a fashion item. But that said, I love the color of this jacket, it's light and it looks great around town, I get lots of compliments when I wear it.
Best Coat Ever
I bought this coat for my wife, who is ALWAYS cold. She has not taken it off since Christmas - she loves it! Your site was the only place I could find it for her. Thank you for keeping my wife warm....and happy!!
Love Love Love it!
This coat is super warm and often times only wear a tee shirt underneath. I live in Michigan and do alot of walking to class in very cold temperatures and keeps me nice and warm. The one thing about this coat is you should go down a size than you normally wear, other north face products I have are a womens Small yet the small in this coat was WAY to big, the extra small fits perfect with plenty of room to layer with sweatshirts if needed! So if you are kind of on the edge go down a size to get a better fit :)
Metropolis Parka - I love it!
I bought a white one in The North Face shop on Michigan Avenue because they'd run out of black ones. Then I decided to order a black one here and return the white one. However, I love this jacket so much that I ended up keeping both! That may be a little extravagant but I feel the Parka is good value for money. It's very stylish, keeps me warm on the coldest days, fits perfectly and I love the hood too. Excellent product!
This is the warmest, sexiest jacket I've ever owned. I get compliments and looks all the time. Stylish and functional. Highly satisfied. I like mine form fitting, and although I'm normally a small, I got an extra-small and it's perfect.
My wife love's it
I bought it for my wife for Christmas and she loves it! She gets numerous compliments on it as well. It is warm and looks great. Hopefully I won't have to buy another one, but I would if it came down to it!
I love this coat and will wear it for years to come. It's thin and warm and has a nice modern fit so it doesn't look like a frumpy puffy coat. I recommend this to anyone who wants to be comfortable and warm in the cold.
I originally purchased the TNF Allure Down Coat and returned it for the metropolis parka. I tested it this weekend in NYC....and can I say perfect. The length is great.....covers your butt. I ordered an XS and usually wear a Small or Medium. So, I'd order smaller. I'm taking a trip to China and that is the main reason I bought this coat. Warm but packs well and is light! I LOVE it.
GREAT Coat w/ a bad zipper
I love this coat. It's one of the best winter coats ever. Very warm. I have only positive things to say about it, with the exception of the zipper. It is hard as heck to zip. Unzip - no problem. I do hope that the zipper doesn't end up breaking on me! Otherwise, 5 stars!!!
