What's a good shell to zip the North Face Redpoint into?

Responded on

The Northface Boxster (TNF5779) and The North Face Mountain Light Jacket ( TNF5775, TNF3530) And of course, any TNF Triclimate jacket, which already come with layering pieces of their own.

My Go-to Insulation

I have had this jacket for almost 2 years now. I already had a Nuptse before I purchased this but it was just too puffy when a had my heavily loaded school bag on and then when I got to class and had to take it off, it looked like I brought my sleeping bag with me and stuffed in under my chair. I got the redpoint to avoid this problem, but mainly because of the synthetic primloft insulation and low bulk. I live in the PNW so everything is always wet so it is nice to have the synthetic insulation. Plus primaloft is super warm and work great as an insulating layer when Im skiing. I have liked this jacket so much that I was thinking of getting the Patagonia Down Sweater Jacket for something with down, slimer cut and lower weight, but the redpoint just performs so well that I havent caved in a got one yet. I probably will in time tho ;). The one thing that I didnt like so much is that it doesnt pack down that small. When I packed down both the Nutpse and Redpoint, they were all that different, but I guess thats what you get when comparing down to synthetic. One thing to note is that depending on how much you want to layer under it, you could potentially size down 1 size bc the cut isnt that slimming. As long as the length was okay, I would guess that you wouldnt have a problem. (I am 150, 5'10 and I have a medium, but probably could use a small most of the time. Hope this helps. cheers

How many grams of PrimaLoft Eco does this...

How many grams of PrimaLoft Eco does this jacket have? 60? 100? Thanks.

Responded on

Its not stated on TNF's website either.
If this is merely a non-hooded version of the Redpoint Optimus, then it should be 100g.
Just a guess.
Anyway, i read from the TNF website that this jacket stows in its left pocket!
Talk about compressable.

Responded on

"If this is merely a non-hooded version of the Redpoint Optimus, then it should be 100g."
It's not, because the Optimus uses PrimaLoft One and the Redpoint uses PrimaLoft Eco. So I don't think we can assume it is 100g. Thank you for the reply, however.

Warm

This is a nice warm light weight jacket and it looks good too. I purchased a blue one and already owned a black one. The blue one doesn't seem as plush or comfy as the black one, but maybe it just needs to be broken in.

Great jacket so far

I bought this somewhat recently to replace my North Face fleece...I have lost a ton of weight recently and needed a new jacket, and was also looking for something thin and single layer I can wear when I go out to bars during the winter. Didn't even think of layering it when I bought it. I got it just after the real cold disappeared, but on the few 40 degree days we have had since it has been amazing. Very warm and very comfortable. It seems like it should be even better for layering than my fleece was based on the reviews here. I cant wait to try it out next fall when I get a new shell in my new size. Overall, so far, I really cannot recommend it enough. It has been exactly as advertised.

very hip

I am very happy that I purchased this jacket for my 15 year old son. I bought him the grey in a small and lucky me,
it fits me too! It's lightweight enough for a chilly day in L.A. and easy to layer if needed. It's very hip looking which is
important.

luv the redpoint

i bought this jacket for my husband's birthday. he loves it! and he isn't easy to please. generally, unhappy with jackets as they are too heavy, if warm, or not warm enough, if lightweight. the redpoint is perfect.

and thank you backcountry for your usual quick shipping and great service.

Love It!

I had to testify to the awesomeness of this jacket. I am a bit jacket obsessed and this is my favorite. The fit, style, and warmth all add up to perfection.

Anyone buy the Bittersweet Brown. I am...

Posted on

Anyone buy the Bittersweet Brown. I am concerned it is alot lighter than the picture shows. I probably wont need the redpoint until next fall, maybe a few weeks in this Buffalo NY spring. At this price I don't want to pass it up. But having the brown vs black debate. I have an apex in black but leaning toward brown....?

Responded on

I'd go with any North Face jacket not in black. Then you will certainly be more unique instead of wearing the ubiquitous black NF garb everyone and his mother are wearing. I have the brown and it looks just fine and functions even better than the OR Neoplume jacket.

Responded on

I have the brown and it is definitely on the darker side. Brown has worked out to be the perfect casual color for me. It dresses up nice when wearing more formal attire.

Great jacket

Works really well in Kansas City. We've had a lot of snow this year and this jacket is all I wear over my clothes. It actually balls up into it's own left pocket too which I didn't know till after I got it. It's super light, looks great, and keeps me warm. I would buy it again.

Exactly as described

Purchased this item for my husband. He loves it- light weight but warm. Fits great.

Simply Great

Simple design, but looks great. Its incredibly warm for its weight, drys well. Took it on a snowshoe hikenear Breck with my wife and friends on a Friday and used it to stay warm when we stopped. Then wore it on the hill the next day with just a base layer underneath and it held up great.

What's the upper temperature range for this jacket? The guys at the North Face store said they wouldn't wear it above 40 degrees since it's so warm.

Responded on

I won't wear mine when it gets much above 40 unless it's windy and cloudy. If there is some sun you'll be taking it off ASAP

Why do holes appear on my jacket? Is there...

Why do holes appear on my jacket? Is there a way to prevent that from happening? And why do holes come out...I never punctured it or anything...

Responded on

Stop smoking with it on? That is how my boyfriend caused a few tiny holes in his. I have had a black one for 2 years and no holes. If it is a manufacturer defect TNF will fix/replace it for free, for life. You just have to ship it to them.
