Although The North Face Women’s Nuptse Down Vest looks classy enough to wear downtown on a cold day, the tough fabric and lightweight down insulation hold up to mountain adventures, too. Abrasion-resistant panels stand up to backpack straps, and ripstop nylon won’t shred the second you lean against a boulder or a tree.

Best vest ever.

    This vest is super comfortable and warm and believe it or not looks very flattering on. I also bought the TKA200 Kimber in Bordeaux Red and it goes nicely with the Nuptse Vest in Loganberry Red.
    I love the live chat with Backcountry, they answered all my questons real-time.

    Loving my new jacket

      Well, my jacket just arrived and I'm just loving it. Love the colour, love the fit, love the extra warmth. I can't really comment on just how warm it is yet because I've only been wearing it for half an hour...and I'm inside. But the rest, fabulous!

      Great fit and flattering, too!

        I just received this vest and LOVE it. The fit is exactly what I was looking for and I don't feel like I look like the Michelin Man wearing it, either! I am 5"3' and 104lbs....the XS is perfect. I decided to return The North Face Thunder Down vest (it was a gift) even though the fit was nice because the front of the vest hit me above the waistline, which I felt was awkward. The Nuptse hits right where it should [below the waistline] and I can layer underneath. Yay!


          My wife wanted it and I finally broke down and got it for her. She loves it and can't believe how warm and comfortable it is. Now of course, she wants one in every color.

          PS- Between the prices and the low cost to recieve free shipping, you wont find a better deal anywhere else.

          Love all of my vests!!!

            I love this vest so so much I have them in Black, Light Blue, Pink, Red, and Salmon. In womens I have some smalls and meds and then I all so have a girls XL. I actually really like the girls XL the best and it was cheaper too!!! It not as big as the ladies Med but not to small. Love wearing a sweatshirts under it. No need for a full winter coat with this vest.

            Love the Vest

              I bought this vest for the coming winter (moving to NYC in June), but I had a chance to test it out during an unexpected April cold snap. It's the best of all worlds: lightweight, warm, comfortable. I didn't have any problems with the length like some reviewers, but I'm average height (5'6"). Drawstring waist keeps it from riding up, which is a huge plus. And it's compressible enough that it fits under my parka for that extra layer of warmth when it gets really cold.

              Fantastically warm

                Expensive, but worth it. This vest is nearly akin to a complete jacket. I have worn it for everything from winter bike commuting to snowshoeing (in single-digit temperatures) to everything in between. This vest has proven its worth in keeping one toasty - sometimes even too hot. So, when you are too lazy to put on your winter jacket, the Nuptse suffices in a swell fashion.

                I could live in this vest forever!

                  I have the Nuptse Down Jacket and love it, so I figured I just better get the vest, too. I got home and found it on my doorstep Dec. 24 - it was the perfect Christmas gift for me from me! I wear it every chance I get...which is a lot. So I finally threw it in the washer and it came it like new. As far as I'm concerned, it's the greatest piece of clothing I have ever owned. It keeps me plenty warm on cold North Idaho mornings, cozy all day long, and I never seem to overheat in it.

                  You Get What You Pay For -- Awesome Vest

                    I bought this for my wife for Christmas and she hasn't taken it off since. The cut looks great and she says it's comfy. And the down is so much lighter and fluffier than what was in her old vest. And that's what sets The North Face vests apart from some others. They're usually more expensive. But you get what you pay for.

                    Another fan -- love my vest

                      LOVE my vest. LOVE LOVE LOVE it. Super cute in the pink, fits nicely, good quality workmanship. I have other vests and love the fit and styling of the Nuptse vest the best by far.

                      Another quality product at a great price thanks to backcountry's coupon! :)

                      Is the loganberry red Nuptse down vest as it appears on this website (rich red color)? It looks more pinkish/burgandy (much lighter red) on the North Face and other websites . Also, is it sized similarly to the Aconcagua vest? Thanks for your help!

                      I need a size L, pink vest in the North Face Nuptse Down Vest. Do you have any of those?
