Oh, how long I waited for this beauty!

For the holidays one year, my father's company gave all their management a North Face Down Vest. My father wore it everywhere, but I just kept thinking to myself, "It has no sleeves, what's the point? How can that possibly keep you warm?" One day, I had to take the dogs out in the snow, and was too lazy to grab my jacket from my room. Dad's vest was by the door, so I grabbed it and threw it on over my hoodie. I was astounded at how warm that thing kept you with no sleeves! It was below freezing with snow on the ground, and I felt nice and toasty! When I moved out on my own, I tried to sneak the vest with me, but of course Dad objected :) From that day forward, I promised myself I would one day invest in one of my own.

For years, I had waited, and finally, Backcountry came to the rescue, offering this vest for a steal of a price during one of their end of summer sales. The vest was finally mine! I have not been able to wear it out yet, as it hasn't been cold enough, but it is the same exact vest, only the female version, that my father has.

Therefore, I can tell you that this vest is exactly the same as my father's I'd been wearing in all ways, only it is cut for a woman instead of a man. The vest itself is light in weight, but not in warmth! When I tried this baby on after it was delivered, I was sweating. The length came right to my hips, just like the description said it would. There's an adjustable drawstring at the waist, and a secret pocket on the inside of the breast large enough to fit a phone (my iPhone fits with a case on it, for size reference). This vest can also be compacted as well. It folds and "squishes" down nicely if you're trying to save room in your luggage, and fits comfortably under a jacket to help with keeping your core warm.

Overall, I'd say this is one of the best purchases/investments I've ever made. I look forward to enjoying this vest for years to come, and hope to one day be able to snag a second in a lighter color (I purchased black). I would recommend this vest to anyone and everyone. Such a staple if you live in cooler areas.

August is starting to feel like Fall

Got this for my wife this past holiday season, she's loved it from day one. It's certainly designed with layering in mind, it compresses down nicely under a parka or down jacket. This past March we camped in the Platte River bottom during the peak of Sandhill Crane migration. We struck camp about a half mile from the river and even at that distance the sound of thousand of cooing birds provided the sound track. We sat together up wind of a rolling hardwood fire as snow fluttered down and I said you know this is warmer than our living room, with a laugh my wife remarked I was just thinking the same thing. My point.. it's warm and it's a striking vest that looks just as good in camp and on the trail as it does at parent teacher conferences.

Never loved vests until now. WORTH IT!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Height: 5' 4"
    Weight: 125 lbs
    Size Purchased: Small

Ordered a Size Small, I'm 5'4 and 125 lbs... perfect fit. Timely delivery. I had never ordered from Back Country before, so was a bit skeptical. I could not find this vest ANYWHERE after looking into multiple stores, online, etc. They were all sold out as this item has been discontinued. This vest is form-fitting, and feminine. I adore the shape. Wore it on my big hikes & it kept me warm. Thank you, Back Country!! Worth every penny.

I have the old nuptse vest and it doesn't have much shape compared to the 2. I like the 2 much better, more feminine. I got the extra small. I can fit a hoody undernear, but not a thick one.

I loved this beat and after seeing it in two friends, I finally bought a small. It actually ended up being too big so I gave it to my bustier sister and got an XS for myself. I love the new taupe color combo.

really warm!

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Height: 5' 5"

    Size Purchased: S

The vest is really warm, but the fit is not to size - too big, especially around the armholes.
An XS may do the trick.

Perfect fit

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

I never liked vests until this one. Very figure flattering fit, especially if you are a petite woman. I'm 5'3" usually a size 4, and I purchased the small. At first I purchased the North Face Aconcagua but found it to be bulky and stiff and really not the fit and quality I was looking for. I can wear the Nuptse over a thick sweater and I don't look or feel like stuffed sausage.

Great puffy vest!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs large

This is my first 'big puffy vest' and I'm really pleased with it! The warmth from the high loft down is noticeable, and I am really appreciating it during Virginia winter. Layered with thermals/thick long sleeves, I can skip the heavy jacket in 40F + conditions and be comfy.

The color selection is great (I have blue), and TNF seems to cycle through colors often enough that it isn't hard to catch a good sale price on a 'past season' color.

The fit is a little big and boxy, but fairly true to the size chart. I am on the smaller end of measurements for the large and definitely have extra room in it. (5'6", 155lbs, 36B). I appreciate the space for layering. The vest is so puffy that it is a little tough to put something over it and have it fit unless you have a fairly roomy jacket.

This has performed excellent double duty as a sleeping bag for our infant on cooler camping nights before he fit into his toddler bag (Kelty Woobie). It packs down quite small and is great for backpacking/camping.

More than a year in, my vest still looks like new and hasn't lost any of its puff.

Hey, I'm looking to buy my first Northface and the only thing that's stopping me is the decision between the sizing of a small and a medium. I've read enough reviews to know that their products run true to size I guess I'm just looking for a bit more confirmation on which to get. I'm 5'6 and 120lbs and was wondering if I should purchase the small or the medium. The find your fit thing said a small. Any feedback bout this would be really helpful!!

Responded on

I found this vest to run a bit large and would suggest you go for the small. If you go to TNF website and click 'find your size' they'll give you a recommendation based on more info than the size chart here (body shape etc): http://www.thenorthface.com/catalog/sc-gear/womens-nuptse-2-vest.html

Responded on

I agree with above response. It does run a bit large, so if you want a roomy vest go for medium but if you want a nice fit definitely go for the small.

Purchased for girlfriend, She loves it!

  • Fit: True to size

Fits great, true to size. She wears it often.

I have the older version of this vest in black and brown in Medium, would I wear a M in this vest too?

Responded on

If you were happy with the old medium that should work well. I haven't found much change in TNF sizing over the past ~10 years.

Makes a great gift

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

Whether you're looking to pick this up for yourself or for someone else its a great choice. Really warm and the regular fit makes it true to size. Gave it to a lady friend that is spending her first winter here in Salt Lake and she is stoked to have such a great vest. She also uses it to layer under her jacket when shes out horse back riding and finds it works great.

Will be purchasing for my daughter. She is approx. 5'6" and 100 pounds. Would I get the x-small or small size. for reference we just tried on the girls X-large vest (reversible) and that was a good fit in the torso and enough room to layer. thanks!

Best Answer Responded on

The girls XL will be just a little bit smaller than the womens XS. I would recommend going with the XS in this.

Any sales/promo codes for the white vest? I want to get it asap! Please and thank you :) -from a student

Responded on

Unfortunately, The North Face (and many other brands) have strict rules about discounting their products. We don't have any codes or promos running on this item right now, and it is unlikely to go on sale until later in the season.
Hit me up if you have any other questions! LFeasler@backcountry.com

You can use our WINTER20 code, it expires tonight at Midnight.

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!

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