A portable duvet

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

Flattering design that shapes well to your body. Extremely warm, stylish and conveniently packs up into a ball using the inside chest pocket. The pockets are also lined, which keep your hands warm on cold days. At 140lbs, 5'8, the medium fits perfectly with medium layers underneath.

Warm and Stylish!

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

I have been looking for a down vest for awhile now and I decided to purchase TNF Nuptse 2 Vest and I definitely did not make a wrong choice. It's super warm, but still gives me the freedom of having free arms. Totally awesome and a great buy. Fits true to size, 5'7, 125ish pounds and the medium fits like a glove with room to fit layers under!

Functionable and Fashionable vest

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

Fits true to size. Love this jacket for layering or wearing alone. It's not too thick, and is very flattering.

What's the fit like? I'm 5'7 and 125 pounds with a thin/athletic build and normally wear a medium to accommodate layers, would a medium fit without being too bulky?

Responded on

Hey Maddy
I actually have this piece and it fits a tad slim. I'm 5'4" 120 lbs and the small fits me even with layers under without looking too bulky. Even as a stand alone it compliments the female shape. I think you will be happy with the small and if you are not we can totally set up an exchange for you. I hope that this helps and let me know if you have any more questions.
Thanks
Jane H.

So happy!

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

This is my second Nuptse vest. The North Face has redesigned the vest with more, smaller quilting sections and a tapered fit, which makes it feel less bulky. I'm 5-5, 120 pounds and the medium fits perfectly. The color (greystone blue with magenta accent) is lovely. Best of all, the vest is very warm in spite of being very light. Love it. Plus, Backcountry customer service is excellent.

I like the greystone blue color; however,...

I like the greystone blue color; however, is the zipper pink or red?

Hey Sann,

It is definitely more of a pink.

SO great I got it as a gift!

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share
  • Fit: True to size

I have last years model and I loved it so much I got is as a gift and this is what she has to say!
"This vest is fantastic!!! I have worn it snowboarding as well as around town and it has been perfect. I am 5?2? and 110 lbs and the fit is great, I am still able to layer something under it."

My daughter LOVES it!

Gave it to our daughter for Christmas, she wanted black but had to get the light grey and she loves it. Great purchase.

A quality product

  • Fit: True to size

I bought this vest for my girlfriend as a late Christmas gift and spur of the moment type of thing and it fits her perfect. I ordered the black large and it is nice a snug on her over a jacket or hoodie. This vest is very warm but can also be used on the cool days of Spring and Fall making it a very versatile vest. I would definitely recommend spending the extra cash for this.

Finally found that perfect vest

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

Absolutely love this vest, both for fit and look. I've worn this vest in varying temperatures, and it really works well. It's not too fluffy like many down vests, but still very substantial. Backcountry also price matched this for me when I found it cheaper on another site, and I loved the customer service.

Everything it says it is

I have wanted this black vest for a while now, yet it always seemed to be out of stock! And as soon as I found one here, I had to order it! I couldn't be more pleased with the fit, and the look. You can truly wear it with ANYTHING. Perfect fit AND look!

Love this vest

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

Nice and worm, very comfortable. I use this vest every day that I can. Can be dressed up or down with the temp. I have worn the black vest for years and gave the gray vest as a gift (so I could get my black one back). Very good quality after many, many washing still looks new.

I have wanted this vest but have had hard time finding Black color and my size, which is Medium. I am 5'6" and 125 lbs. Would the large be too big since everyone says it fits true to size?? Will there not be anymore until next year?

Best Answer Responded on

I think a large may fit a little too big for you. Never fear, we have more black, medium vests on the way! Keep checking back in a month or so to see if we've put that item up on the site yet.

Great Vest!

Just got the "High Rise Grey heather", by free 2 day delivery. It's a great vest, warm, not so bulky, true to size. The color is indeed a very light, off-white type of grey, just what I like. I love this website too! They are very helpful. I am going to use the vest on my hiking trips soon!

I like the white vest but am worried about getting stains on it. Is it machine washable?

Best Answer Responded on

This is what The North Face has to say about 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.

The "High Rise Grey heather" looks very similar to "White". Is it true or is it greyish, like in the photo on the dog?

Best Answer Responded on

The fashionable dog is wearing an older model of the same jacket, which used to come in a darker gray. The "High Rise Gray Heather" is more of an off-white than a gray.
