Your standard peacoat would be warm enough for mild winter days but, when the truly bitter winter weather rolls in, The North Face Women's Paulette Down Peacoat takes the cake. Quilted down insulation gives you all the warmth you need, a water repellent coating fends off light precipitation, and the highly stylized cut and finish give this coat a look that easily transitions between resort nightspots and the city streets.

  • 550-fill down insulation offers warmth enough for the most bitter cold weather and gives this jacket a lofty feel without massive bulk
  • DWR coating helps the shell repel light flurries and drizzle so you stay dry
  • Tall, oversized collar has hidden magnets that keep it closed when it's up and allow it to fall wide against the chest when down
  • Front closure uses zipper and magnets, with the buttons serving as a decorative touch
  • Stylized detailing includes rolled hem and collar, metal logo rivet on left sleeve, and embroidered logo placement

The North Face Paulette Down Peacoat

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

Bought this coat for my daughter. She loves it. Very flattering on her. Really emphasizes on her waist instead of being a long straight coat with no shape. She is 5 7' and it reaches just past the knee

. Very warm here in the Michigan weather that has been below 0 alot. Great purchase. Very happy.

North Face Paulette Down Coat

Love,Love, Love my new coat!! Thank you!! Was a little worried I will admit...after reading some reviews, but it fit perfectly I'm 5'5" and ordered a size M. Wore it out walking the dog in 15 below and was perfectly warm!! The color also is great a very dark navy almost black. Love that the buttons are magnetic and stay put so when it's zipped and buttoned looks very stylish and I don't look like the stay puff marshmallow man... This is one warm and happy customer! Thanks

LOVE this jacket!

It took me a really long time to order this jacket because the reviews weren't great, but I loved it and took a chance ordering it. It's perfect! I was expecting a weird cut and a bell like bottom. It fit to a tee. I think it just depends what your shape is. I love the details and magnetic buttons. It has a zipper too. I ordered it In a smaller size because the reviews said it ran really big, but it is snug, so I feel it runs true to size. It is nice and light. I hope it's warm. And Backcountry was amazing!!!! A+++++ stellar service. I called because there was a 2 day shipping special and it wasn't on my order-they shipped overnight to me!!! They are #1 in my book!

Sad return!

  • Fit: Runs large

I should have listened to the other reviews too.

I bought Navy blue color coat. color more dark purple side of blue. It was a nice color.

I am a size 4,6. I order small size. it was a little of bigger. The sleeves was so wide. The wide sleeves made me looks 3 size bigger. very disappointed.

Should have listened to reviews

  • Fit: True to size

I should have listened to the other reviews. I absolutely love the look of the coat. I love the magnetic snaps and the large neck. I loved the material of the coat. However, it just lays awkward. I am not sure why it does, it is just so much wider on the bottom so it looks weird. I have large hips and a small waist and yet it still laid on my weird. I purchased the Miss Metro Down Parka by NF instead and am super happy.

Big Hips Coat

  • Fit: Runs large

Like others, I wanted to love this coat! The magnetic snaps, the materials...all stylish and user-friendly! But, trust the reviews about the bottom bell shape. I'd need hips five times my size to make this coat fit.

Totally In love With this Coat!!

  • Fit: True to size

I initially bought this coat in black but did not like the shiny material. Returned the black & got the white & it is a beautiful coat!! So happy I went with the white. Not too cold in NY yet but I cannot wait to put this coat to use. Customer service at BackCountry was fantastic and friendly every time I spoke with them. One of the reps even had the patience to sit on the phone with me while I searched for more images in the white to decide if I wanted to choose that color.

bell shaped bottom

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: True to size

it is a nice modern coat but I concerns about the bell shaped bottom which I believe will not be as warm as it should be. Also, the wide shoulder and all the lines on the coat makes me like a Robert...

Great looking design but funky on

    I took the current reviews in consideration before purchasing this coat and took my chances. I tried it on and knew right away that it wasn't going to work. I am usually an XS to S in coats and the XS was way too big. As other reviewers have mentioned, the bottom of the coat bells out so it looks like you are wearing a dress form and it really looks funky. Too bad, it's a cute style with the peacoat look but I packaged it right up and sent it back.

    My favorite coat ever!!!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I can't believe this coat doesn't get 5 stars across the board! Very flattering and warm. I'm a medium and the medium fits great (a little roomy). There's enough room to wear a thick sweater and layers. I've gotten lots of compliments on my coat. I feel a need to buy a couple more as backup to have for the future.

    Had to send it back

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

    When I bought the coat, there were 2 good reviews and 2 bad, so I thought it was worth a shot. Unforunately, I can't get past the funky bottom bell shape to the coat and had to return it. Also, I'm 100 percent sure the Dark Navy color is indeed Black...I would like to mention that the Live Chat folks rock and I will do business with Back Country again!


    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    My sister just got it, and i tried on and i can say that its really very, very nice coat. she took XS and it fits me perfectly - I'm very slim, its true. i think it would be nice to add a belt, but even without that it looks OK, especially for young girls. I'm looking forward to getting mine (by the way, i ordered it too - please, deliver it quickly :))!

    Runs large - esp in hips

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

    I so wanted to like this jacket, but it runs very large - it is not a fitted jacket. The fit is just strange - the lower half of the jacket, through the hips, sticks way out to the sides and looks clownish. The shoulders are also large compared to normal TNF sizing. Maybe a size down would help, but the hips would still stick way out.

    Love This North Face

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I ordered this coat in a XS in the Graphite Grey..

    Love this coat it is very stylish, can be worn easily with denim and boots or a dress.. I am 5'3 and a sz 2-4 and the fit was perfect...

    Very pleased with the customer service and quick shipping..

    Stylish and Functional!

      The Paulette Down Peacoat from The North Face is the best update to a warm down coat I've seen in a while. Finally, a coat that will keep you warm while still looking well put together. Fit is good, runs slightly big, but that's probably a good thing if you'll have sweaters or heavier layers underneath. I'm 5'7 120 and the small fits well.

      I'm a Southern Cali girl so don't know...

      I'm a Southern Cali girl so don't know much about cold weather. I'm going to Iceland in March and need a warm coat. The weather will be in the 30's. Any idea if this will be warm enough? Thank you in advance.

      Is the coat machine washable?
