Great jacket, but sending it back

    I am 5'4" and weigh 105 lbs. I am not a petite because of my height and 99% of the time wear an XS. This XS is tight fitting (I tried it on with only a t-shirt), so I can't fit a sweater on underneath it. The main problem, though, is that the sleeves are about an inch (or more) too short! I have to send it back and I see that they no longer have an smalls. It was a great deal- I wish it had worked for me. Also love the color (loganberry red).

    Great Jacket!!

      I bought this jacket as a gift for my GF, she is a bit skinny and is always cold, those days are over, she says she doesnt need any layer down this one, only a single shirt and will never feel any cold.
      the material looks great and has awesome breathable capacity so u dont heat over. Has some water resistant also, still i do not recommended for past experiences when goose down filled jackets get wet the feathers in it may compress with each other and will never be as new again..

      Great jacket

        I was a little worried when I first received the jacket, as it seemed WAY too puffy, and I nearly returned it! But I tried it on a few times, and soon got used to it, and now I just don't want to take it off - it is SO warm and snug, and really comfortable to move around in. You can just wear a t-shirt underneath, and still be toasty, which is something you probably couldn't in a thinner down jacket on a cold day. I also think it's one of the nicest looking puffy jackets out there. So, I'm glad I didn't send it back!

        Go Poofy or Go home!

          I'm 5'8" and 150#s. Unfortunately, a Medium was a good fit but was too short in the arms and body. The Large was way too poofy but was the better length in the arms and body. Be prepared for this jacket to be very poofy. It is very warm though.

          Love, Love, Love My Northface Jacket

            This jacket is awesome. I would recommend it for anyone looking for warmth, comfort and style.

            The jacket has exceeded my expectations for warmth. The quality and quantity of down suggests that this should be warmth, which is why I settled on this particular jacket. I live in the northern part of the US where winters see temperatures below zero frequently and I am an outdoor enthusiast so I like to spend time outdoors even in the cold. I can attest that this jacket will keep you warm even when the temperatures are freezing.

            It also looks very stylish. I had to order it in a medium though I am normally a small.

            I would say the only downsides I have found are the absence of a hood (which I, of course, knew before I purchased). I also have a longer torso and at times the jacket creeps up a little higher than I would like. I find this with most jackets though in this type of style.

            Overall, I am very pleased with this purchase and would highly recommend this jacket.

            Love it!

              I got paint on my original North Face Nuptse Down Jacket I got 8 years ago, which I LOVED! Living in Montana and always being cold, the down jacket is a necessity. Already knowing that I liked it so much, I just ordered a new one, which of course didn't disappoint! Highly recommend to anyone wanting to stay warm in the winters. I'm usually a S, but in this I wear the medium so you have room for layers...

              Total Warmth

                My wife and I have both had these jackets for about a year and have been pleased with them. It does what it is supposed to do, keep you warm. There are other down jackets out there that are warmer and lighter but this one does the job that I ask it to. Be aware that it is the very puffy style and you will look large in it. The jacket features a DWR finish that works fine for light snow or drizzle but would not do well in rain. 700 fill rate and packs down small. No hood on this jacket but the Men's version does, don't really understand that.

                Really warm and really puffy...

                  Man o man, this is one puffy jacket, i look like a marshmellow in this one, but it sure does keep me warm, so to mask the marshmellow effect i have zipped it into my hardshell and now that kinda squishes it down and gives it total waterproof protection and extra warmth for me. There is one thing that has me a little ticked off though, its the fact that they gave the mens version a stow away hood and have totally left it out for the women's model, whats that about? I guess they don't think we need head protection, even though we are the one's with long hair that we don't want to get messed up or wet. C'est la vie....

                  Diana, the men's version has a hood but it is a very thin vinyl material that basically just blocks some of the wind but provides virtually no warmth. On the other hand, it is a hood and does help some, especially with a hat on. I have no idea why they didn't put it on the women's jacket.

                  Nice jacket!

                    Well, as expected, this jacket is super warm (how could it not be with 700 fill down???). It's been in the teens here and I've worn it every day since getting it- it's perfect! Length wise, it falls to about mid-hip on me, which is longer than I was expecting, although I did get the extra large (I'm 5'4", 160lbs, big bust!). The only issue I have with this jacket is the sleeves aren't quite long enough- they barely touch my wrist and any time I raise my arm to do anything I have a good 2 inches of skin exposed. It wasn't like this on my other TNF jacket (furallure) but overall it's not a huge deal... just a little annoying. Overall, love the jacket!

                    Thumbs up!

                      Gave this jacket to my daughter as a gift. She loves it but wanted a roomier fit so ended up exhanging the M for a L (and she's only 5'3" and 125 lbs). It's super warm and cozy, and all the rage on her college campus (Colorado).

                        I've always had great luck with North Face. I still have my NF down sleeping bag from more years ago than I care to admit to.

                        This jacket s so toasty & since it actually came in a petite & in brown, this has been a win-win situation. I turned an e-mail friend who lives in NYC where winters are not fun & she ordered it in a heart beat.

                        Sorry-no picture; I've no idea how to do that but--
                        I do look like a Michelin ( hey it's a down jacket for christ sake) & I love it. I also love Back Country.

                          Is down coming out of the jacket normal?

                          My wife has had her jacket for two months and loves it. However she has noticed that down has been coming out of the jacket in different spots. Sometimes there is down coming out of the seems, and sometimes just in the middle of the jacket. She has taken great care of it. The good news is Backcountry did the exchange, but my question is, should I expect the replacement to have the same problem?

                          Best Answer

                          Yes. With high quality down and lightweight shell materials, little down clusters will poke through every so often. When they do so, grab them from the other side of the baffle and pull them back into it. Afterwards, work the material around it to help tighten the fibers where it was poking through. If you can't get the cluster back into the baffle, let it fall out on its own and then work the material.
                          Whatever you do - don't pull the clusters out. That makes the hole bigger and it won't be able to tighten back down.

                          Was wondering is this a good jacket for skiing?


                          This jacket will be VERRRRRY warm which, depending on how hard you're skiing, might be perfect. This is a 700-fill down (I've been known to wear my 800-fill on particularly disagreeable ski days) and the outer material is not as super-durable or waterproof as "ski" jackets. However, if you don't plan on falling often, are a fair-weather skier, and don't mind unzipping during long runs, this will work nicely... This will also be much lighter and compress more than a normal ski jacket.

                          If you're just looking for a ski jacket and don't necessarily need the light-weight warmth of a puffy, I'd look at ski jackets specifically. However, a warm puffy is a beautiful thing and should never be overlooked (especially when they're on sale).

                          Happy trails!

                          Would this be an ideal jacket for skiing? If this isn’t, is there another jacket that you can recommend please?

                          Colleen, this is a fantastic jacket but it only has a DWR finish so it could get wet during a day of skiing. You could wear a waterproof shell over it but it would probably be too warm unless it is really cold. I would recommend a waterproof ski jacket (there are numerous brands and styles) or a lighter down jacket like TNF Thunder with a waterproof shell over it.

                          I think you would be a small in this jacket as well. :) I am 5'4" and around 110 lbs, and I have really long arms. My arms fit in the small jacket well & I pulled the drawstring at the waist in order for it to hug me a bit better.
