Kind of wish there was a hood, like the MH jacket that also uses primaloft one, but their stuff is never long enough (6'5") so I got this one. So warm for it's size it is amazing. I regularly wear it over a t-shirt in 20 degree weather to class. I also wear it as my insulating layer over long underwear, under a shell when alpine skiing and it also works great (a time when it's nice not to have a hood). I've probably worn it for 50 of the past 65 days and it's holding up fine. This thing puts fleece to shame. I plan on stuffing it into my backpack in the spring and fall, as a small just in case layer. Much better than I expected it to be.
I use this jacket mostly for ski touring in the Wasatch mountains of Utah. Very compressible with a great look. Wear it out at night as well.
My go to jacket
This jacket is so good to have. It is great for the winter for anything. It can handle light rain or snow without getting too wet. It still keeps you warm when wet. The really nice thing is it is not too hot while keeping you at a perfect temp. It also has a really great design and look so it works for function and as just a warm casual jacket.
Does tis product have a waist drawstring?...
Does tis product have a waist drawstring? and does it have an inside pocket?
yes to first ?, no to the second...
Warm 'n low weight
So i really bought this jacket b/c i liked the style... so I primarily had it on around town and such. However, i decided to rock it skiing one day, and it worked pretty well... so... great jacket. warm, light, durable, stylish, good price... murder she wrote - N
Great jacket overall. I use this for ski touring in the Wasatch when I am standing around at the top. Keeps you warm and packs down pretty small when not in use. Recommended.
Better than expected
This jacket is great if you live up north...Living in North Dakota, the wind is treacherous. This jacket protects from the wind very well...I love it
Hello! I bought a size L NF Redpoint...
Hello! I bought a size L NF Redpoint Jacket for my dad, it fits perfectly. I am looking at the NF Aconcagua, should I get the same size - Large?
Great all-purpose jacket
My husband, brother, and father all have this jacket, and hardly take it off during the winter in Utah. It is a perfect jacket for keeping warm without being super bulky. It also stays drier than fleece, so it's great for those quick storms that sneak up on you. Sizing was right on with other The North Face gear they own. Highly recommend it!
jacket is lightweight, warm, my boyfriend hasn't taken it off. He loves it!! We bought a second jacket in another color because he loves it so much
A poor product
I have bought The North Face products, like many, over the years. Some are excellent, others very poor. This item falls into the latter category. It is flimsy and only of mediocre quality. I have seen jackets at half the price that were superior. My opinion is that The North Face makes so many items, that one has to be careful to select those that live up to the manufacturer's reputation. The only redeeming aspect is that this site is a completely reliable merchant.
Too big thru the middle
The jacket was too thick insulation-wise. Also, I have an athletic build, and while the fit thru the shoulders was fine, the fit thru the middle was much too big and baggy.
Layered this jacket with Varius Guide jacket while skiing in Colorado in snow and low 20's, it was great. Next day the weather cleared and warmed to 30's, wore only the Redpoint over base layers, it was comfortable. Very good garment. Hope NR doesn't discontinue. Easier to pack and wear than fleece.
Dad Loves It
I bought this jacket a few weeks ago, it was huge on me. ON a whim I wanted to see if it would fit my dad, it did. Later that night I got a flat, he came out. I was freezing, but he was wearing his new jacket and kept bragging about how warm he was. It's amazing how warm it is yet how light. I just bought a medium for myself. Usually a Large is big enough for me, as I'm 6'3", but since I only weigh 180(ish) it was huge in the torso. I live in Kansas and we are having a harsh winter, I'm really looking forward to wearing this under my The North Face Apex Softshell.
Solid, versatile piece of gear
This jacket is very well designed. The two pockets could be higher up for when I have a pack on, but other than that it's fine. I am 6'0"/165 lbs, and usually wear a TNF Medium, and the Medium Redpoint fits like all other TNF I have tried. I works as it's own jacket, with a thin layer underneath when I'm heading to class, or a fleece underneath when it gets colder. You can zip it into a shell if you're going to be out in some serious weather, though the water- and wind- resistance of this jacket is more than I expected. Warmer than a fleece, thinner than a fleece, slides under a layer better than a fleece, doesn't pill or attract lint like fleece...overall, better than fleece. I use it as a replacement for fleece a lot of times, so I don't have to throw a shell over my Patagonia R4. Between this and the R4, I'd say the R4 is a little warmer (maybe, it's close) and blocks wind a little better than this one, but the one will resist light rain and snow more so than my R4. I'd say, for the price, you can't go wrong with this jacket.
Toasty warm in 20deg weather with a sweater underneath. Super super light weight.
I am returning this jacket because it is clearly inferior to other brands. The insulation is thin and the jacket runs too large. I found another puff jacket - with zip-off sleeves - a GREAT feature - instead.
Warmer than you'd expect
I wear this jacket on its own when temps are 15 degrees and up, and as a layering piece if it's colder or if I need to wear something more presentable on top...never felt cold when wearing it. My wife was looking for a winter jacket and I told her that the women's Redpoint would be too light for her. If the men's version is a fair representation of the womens', I was wrong. Only negative - pit zips would be nice.
Jacket is nice and warm, wearing it at around 20 degrees keeps you nice and toasty. The water repelency is almost as good as my TNF rain coat. The only problem I have is the packability. It does pack into the pocket but getting it zipped is pretty much a B*&^%.
Really like the jacket. It's warm but breathes well. I wore it under my Arcteryx shell on a very cold day snowboarding and It helped keep me warm. I almost bought the hooded one but realized the hood would not fit over my helmet. It is also quite stylish for a puffy jacket. i have been wearing it a lot.
