Description

Enter the storm.

The North Face redesigned its staple puffy with a contoured, more feminine fit, so you can explore your favorite winter places without looking like you borrowed you man-friend’s coat. A long-time favorite among snow junkies and mountain-town inhabitants, The North Face Women’s Nuptse 2 Jacket keeps you super toasty in arctic conditions, and it stuffs into its own pocket when space-saving is a must.
  • Double-layer taffeta at the shoulders resists abrasion from pack straps
  • Standard fit enables layering under and over
  • Zip-in compatibility with The North Face shells lets you take off/ put on both jackets as one
  • Brushed collar prevents chafing
  • Hem cinch seals out drafts

Lovely lady's that deserve the best.

"My North Face Nuptuse Women's Down Jacket is terrific! It keeps me super warm on all my outdoor winter adventures. The fit is fabulous and hugs my waist, which I like a lot. The durability is also top of the line. I absolutely love it!"

I am 5'3" and currently weigh 150 lbs. What would be the best size for me to order at this weight? Thanks.

This jacket is on the roomy side, but does have long arms. I would say it would be safe to size down a size from what you normally wear if length is a concern. I'm 5'4" and 130 and a small fits me well, but the xs is fine too, so its on the roomy side.

I did not see care instructions anywhere, how do you clean this jacket?

Responded on

I am going to give you exactly what The North Face Recommends for cleaning down jackets:

"Periodic cleaning of down jackets is essential to maintaining maximum loft and ensuring the long life of the product. Though it is possible to wash your own down product, we recommend that you have your jacket or sleeping bag professionally cleaned by a service that specializes in cleaning down. If you do not have a cleaning service in your local area, you may send your product to the Warranty Department, and request that we send it to our cleaning service.

I wash mine in a front loading machine ( not one with a center agitator) on gentle cycle with a mild liquid detergent or tech wash. I then ( and this is important or it wont fluff back up) dry the jacket on a low heat with 2 or 3 tennis balls in the dryer. Dry until it is completely dry and puffy again. This actually really helps me extend the life of my down.

Not high enough performance

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I've had this coat before, but lost it on an airplane. It is a nice down coat, and I like how you can zip it into the shell, but it isn't high enough performance for what I need. I'm looking for a warm puffy for cold belays and winter camping. I also wanted something with a hood. This is hard to find in woman's small sizes, so I got this coat but then I just wasn't satisfied. I did more research and found a great review for the Rab Neutrino Endurance Jacket (http://www.outdoorgearlab.com/Winter-Jacket-Womens-Reviews/Rab-Neutrino-Endurance-Jacket-Womens). I got that one, and it is just what I was looking for.

Do the Northface jackets have a tendency to shed down?

Responded on

Melissa,
All down jackets are going to shed a little down over time, even the most high quality jackets out there. The North Face Nuptse 2 Down Jacket is no different in this sense. However, I have never heard of TNF down jackets losing down any more than any other brand.

Responded on

I think you do hear of North Face jackets shedding down quite a bit... but I think that's because they are so popular, not because they shed down any more than any other brand....

Responded on

...My friend complains of his N.F. Micro Thunder shedding quite a bit, the McMurdo to a lesser extent, and my N.F. Helicity dose quite a bit.
His Patogonia (Primo Down)to a lesser degree yet.
...But all will shed to a greater/lesser degree. Can't beat down for exterior insulation...best to look for a water proof/wind proof exterior (and/or a 'rip-stop' material, if at all possible) for best protection and wear.

Responded on

I think this jacket actually loses considerably less down than most of my others because the fabric is so densely woven. It weighs more because of this, but feathers have a hard time getting through. I could see how other NF down jackets with thinner and lighter weight materials would lose feathers, but this one doesn't seem to.

Super warm and light weight

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

Used this to ski in Montana in 15-20 degree weather and was very happy. Room to layer. I'm 5'8", 125 lbs and ordered a small & the fit is good, except the sleeves run a bit short. Love the Prussian Blue Heather color.

Cute Jacket, warm!

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

Ordered this coat for my daughter. She's in Jr. High and typically opts for brands like Abercromie, etc. However, we've had colder temps than typical this year so it was time to her something that's cute and keeps her warm! Along with early morning walks to the bus stop and weekends in the Mountains, this jacket fits the bill. She's about 5'4" and chose this coat herself and is happy with it. She could have worn an x-tra small, but of course I opted for a Small as I know she'll get several years of use out of it! She has some room to grow, but overall great fit, slightly tapered, without being too bulky.

Too Small

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

I'm 5'10, 180 lbs. I felt like this jacket was to constricting, especially with the Denali jacket underneath. The sleeves drove me crazy, because they weren't long enough. I'm exchanging for The North Face Inlux Insulated Jacket

Love the jacket!

I was looking for a down jacket for warmth in a cold dry environment. This jacket is perfect. I tried this jacket on at a retail store for bit but they did not have the color I wanted and it wasn't on sale. I found backcountry.com on a google search. I normally wear an XS to S and I went with XS and can still fit a fleece underneath.

Good Jacket

Jacket is very warm. Wore it skiing in 20 degrees and was perfect. Runs slightly large and a little baggy on the chest area.

Warm and Comfy

Love this jacket, it's my second one. I have yet to get cold while wearing it. I use it for cooler days in Utah (25 and below). Fits true to size.

I'm from Australia and going to Canada during dec-april. I have no warm clothing that would be suitable for Canada. Do you think this jacket would be ok for the winter over there?

Responded on

I've been to Toronto and Windsor, my friends in Minnesota USA spend more time in Canada; having moved back from NZ to the states I think you will find the cold quite a shock. You might look at the Lyngen jackets if they are in your price range as one has a hood. Or, Marmot which has a higher fill and was pretty popular in Wellington. I think this is a great jacket - seen it in the store, but that you may find yourself wishing for a hood Dec-Mar. It kind of depends also if you'll be in the city running about or primarily outdoors. If the latter I'd get something with a hood.

I thought the woman jacket sizes were bigger than what the size chart suggested

Is this jacket water proof??

Is this jacket water proof??

Responded on

No, it is just a polyester material. A few drops will be fine but i wouldnt wear it in a storm. It can zip into waterproof North Face shells, though.

Do you know which waterproof shells it can zip into?

So glad I purchased this jacket!

I was lucky enough to get this jacket at 1/2 price and even though it's spring in my area, I happened to go to work in a VERY cold building right after receiving it. I've been wearing it ever since and am HAPPY! It's warm without bulk. Not as streamlined as the Patagonia down sweater, but not as big as some other 700 fill jackets on the market. Has nice features like a glove clip on the sleeve, velcro wrist closures, a soft, padded collar, zippered interior pocket, etc. It's tapered at the waist which is nice to avoid the typical boxy look. I also like the matte finish fabric. Hate the shiny down jackets. LOVE the green interior color with the brown outer color! I haven't tried stuffing it yet - not sure I'll be able to do that, but if it can be done, it will be done. Please note: Exchanged a medium for a large for a much better fit. GET THIS for next winter if you need a jacket. Thanks, Backcountry, for such easy buy/return. Great customer service!!

So, I am normally a true small, but found with several NF jackets that the sleeves were too short, but body was fine (Metropolis) or it was too tight, but sleeves were good (East Village jacket). Does jacket run true to size?

Responded on

I'm 5ft 105lbs-107lbs, 35in bust, this coat was very big in the bust/sleeves. The torso width - okay, but long overall.
