Ahh the Nuptse. It's one of The North Face's best-selling jackets for a reason. A few reasons, actually. Warm 700-fill goose down is one of 'em.

  • 700-Fill goose down provides warmth without feeling heavy or stuffy
  • Double-layer taffeta on shoulders boosts durability
  • Internal, zippered stow pocket turns the Nuptse into a comfy winter-camping pillow
  • DWR coating helps repel flakes

Very warm jacket

    This is a very warm jacket and is great on a sub-zero windy day. One thing that I would complain about is not having a down filled hood. It does have a hood but it is just a thin sheet of material and does not do much. Wearing a hat with this is fine but this is a jacket to be worn on really cold days and I did not think about buying a down jacket with a hood.

    I am so happy with your services and the quality of the product that you are selling

      Thanks Back country for your existence because I am so happy with your services and I love my new nuptse down jacket I can't wait to be in the cold season to wear my jacket. my wife has one of the nuptse down jacket she likes it so much . to be honest I never been satisfied shopping on line till I discover you back country. thank you a lot.

      One great jacket....

        I live in the high country of Colorado. We aren't Alaska, but we do get some extreme weather.

        This jacket is an awesome jacket. Warm for hours even in the winter nights of Vail and can even be worn inside for a brief time without causing one to sweat up a storm.

        It seems to shut out the cold when it needs to and then breathe when you need to. Kind of amazing.

        The only drawback is this coat was not designed for extended exposure to heavy, wet snows nor rain of a Rocky Mountain spring.
        But, was warm even when wet and it dried quickly without any damage to the shape of the coat.

        Not only fuctional, but stylish, too.

        My favorite jacket.

        Works for Me

          I have had this jacket about a year and have been pleased with it. It does what it is supposed to do, keep me warm. There are other down jackets out there that are warmer, lighter but this one does the job that I ask it to. The main competition for this jacket would be the Mountain Hardwear Sub-Zero and they are both fine coats. I also own the MH and think it might be a little warmer.

          DWR finish works fine for light snow or drizzle. 700 fill rate and packs down small. Hood is about worthless IMO.


            Excelente chaqueta de duvet, especial para los climas fríos de la Patagonia argentina. Muy cómoda y confortable. Diseño clásico y probado. primero probé con el chaleco Nuptse, y dado su buen resultado, me decidí por la chaqueta. El tamaño L me va perfectamente, siendo que mido 1.90m y peso 94 kg.
            La recomiendo con confianza.

            I recommend this jacket

              I bought this North Face down jacket this spring and used it some already for sitting outdoors in 35-50 degree temp's. I have hiked just a little with it this spring and it was a little warm for that. I like the good quality construction, comfortable feeling when I slip it on. I spend quite abit of time outdoors in Northern New Mexico. I also do camping in the fall and spring in Mountainous areas. It is just right to keep me warm sitting or taking care of camp chores. I wanted light weight and this fits the bill. I would have liked a waterproof exterior, this is only DNR, it will shed water and snow just enough to get back to camp and put on a rain jacket over the top of it.

              I rate this between a 4-5 with what I have experienced so far. I may change that when I use it more next fall and winter. I can recommend this jacket to people.

              Love Northface

                This is a great jacket. Keeps you warm even in 9 degree weather! This is the first time I used Backcountry. I chatted with an associate on their website and it was informative, instantaneous, and easy as pie! I will definitely be back to buy more gear from Backcountry!

                Thank you Backcountry

                  Great winter jacket, classic North Face attire that's popular for a reason. Also worth mentioning is Backcountry's customer support and service which is FANTASTIC. I returned the jacket after an extensive period of time and did not wear it that much because it was too big for me. I recently was able to return the jacket and obtain the correct fitting jacket for me. Highly recommended. I will likely buy more products from this site again.

                  I was toasty warm

                    I got the chance to wear this one 15 degree night after I bought it. There was no wind so I cannot speak to whether it blocks wind and to what degree, but I started to sweat while wearing the jacket. It's surprisingly thick and amazingly light. Since I purchased this on sale at the end of the season, I'm looking forward to using it more than once next winter.

                    Great Jacket Love it !

                      Great Jacket ! Five stars for sure. Lightweight, great fit and great style. Oh did I forget Warmmm ! I did not need the huge pocket inside the jacket however 5 min. on the sewing mach and I have a pocket that works better for my phone and glasses.The Jacket went on sale one week after I recieved it and the great folks at Backcountry adjusted the price. No hassle just excellent service. I look forward to doing business with them again and I would recommend them to anyone looking for quality gear.

                      What size do I wear if I am 5 ft 8 inch...

                      What size do I wear if I am 5 ft 8 inch tall and weigh 170 lbs?

                      Best Answer

                      Hi - I am 5 ft 9.5 and weigh 165 lbs. and felt just about comfortable when I just bought the North Face Nuptse - in Size LARGE. In my view, and my height and weight are very close to yours, I would go no smaller than a size LARGE IN the North Face Nutpse. Large will Not be too big, and will give you the option of layering, if you choose, on a very cold day. I hope this helps you.

                      Write your question here... Do these jackets...

                      Write your question here...
                      Do these jackets some in tall sizes? I need a tall Large Mens.
                      Please let me know

                      Is there a North Face shell that would fit...

                      Is there a North Face shell that would fit the Nuptse?
                      Ie, the Nuptse would zip into the shell.

                      Just by looking at the zipper, standard YKK, I would say you could zip this into any TNF jacket that has the zip in capability(it says whether it has it in the tech specs). Zipping it in may not be very good though because of the thickness. It may be too bulky if zipped in. I would just put it on under a shell instead of zipping it in.

                      does it has hood?

                      does this keep the wind out as well?
