Description

Performance puffy jacket for layering during the colder days in the alpine.

High, dry mountains can freeze your climbing or skiing muscles beyond working condition, but layering with The North Face Santiago Down Jacket locks in enough heat to keep you primed for the next pitch or powdery descent. Lightweight and compressible, this 600-fill down jacket seals in your body heat without adding much weight to your pack. Whether you slip it on while belaying or use it as a mid-layer beneath your ski shell, you can rely on the natural insulating power of down to keep you comfortable when winter shows its teeth.
  • Nylon and polyester outer doesn't shred at the sight of other zippers or climbing gear
  • Compressible 600-fill down insulation traps heat without adding a lot of bulk to your winter getup
  • All-over baffles help keep the down in place over many seasons of constant use
  • Full-length front zipper permits venting when you heat up
  • Elastic hem and cuffs further help seal out the frigid air
  • Two zippered hand pockets hold skiing or daily accessories close at hand
  • Weighing just 15.5 ounces, this down puffy packs into its own left pocket for easy transportation and storage

Hi!
I'm from Belarus and ussualy out winter is minus 15-30 c. Does this jacket suitable for our winter?

Responded on

-15 C is getting pretty cold. I would say that this jacket would hold up on its own for short walks and longer train/bus commutes. However, if you are having to stay exposed for longer periods of time I might upgrade to The North Face Thunder Down Jacket .

Bright Blue

This is a really nice jacket/coat. I bought this as a gift for my brother. He thinks the blue is too bright. Anyway, I'm returning it and hoping to find him something more to his liking.

Very Warm Mid-layer

I was looking for a mid-layer jacket that was lightweight and easy to wear under my shell. This jacket fit the bill for me. I'm 5'7" 150lbs. so the jacket fits me pretty good although it is snug around my chest but not so much that I can't move. Being that this is a 600 fill I didn't think I would get too warm in it but found that I was way hot when hiking in the backcountry so it has to come off while hiking then back on while skiing the resorts. Great product.

Good for the slim

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

First bought the Patagonia sweater down jacket and my family told me a looked like the Michelin man in it. I'm a slimmer guy and it just made me look super puffed up. So I tried on this jacket and bought it instead - has a slimmer fit, super light, warm, not too bulky.

Better for casual than outdoor adventure

Okay I have mixed feelings on this jacket, but I feel it's my duty to inform you, THE CUSTOMER, of my experience :)

Pros:
- Extremely comfortable, warm, and light weight.
- Looks good! (got lots of compliments from the lady folks and the dudes as well)
- Perfect fit for those with broad shoulders and shorter arms than your standard 'Large' garments.

Cons:
- Not very durable! I wore casually, didn't even get the chance to try it in the great outdoors, for a couple weeks. I did some moving for a friend and I did some holiday errands, and found that there were several running seams on the chest (which produced frayed threads sticking out) , and some of the down feathers were coming out at the seams. I was not terrible, but I felt for the price (at the time it was $200), and for the extent I expected to use it for outdoor use, it should have been more durable. I am returning it and am currently looking to upgrade to a better option.

Hope this helped you.

And I almost forgot...customer service from BC couldn't have been better. Called on New Year's Eve and was immediately helped by a very informative and friendly rep. Kudos!

Nice coat & great service

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought the coat in green about 2 months ago. I didn't wear it, however, until mid-November. At that point, I noticed a defect. Specifically, there was no down in the last sleeve baffle by my right wrist. Upon calling, I found out the coat was sold out in green in my size. I was, however, offered an exchanged or my money back. I wanted green, though, so they put a grey coat on hold for me, while I contacted North Face about a repair. The repair time would have been 4-6 weeks and I didn't want to wait that long to get back my winter coat.

Upon calling back a few days later, the customer service agent indicated the coat was now available in green. They shipped a new one out along with a label to return the defective coat. I was very impressed not only with the backcountry.com's policy, but also the friendliness and professionalism of the agent on the phone.

In terms of the coat, it is warm and comfortable without being bulky. Backcountry's service, however, is exceptional, allowing a return 6 weeks out without any paperwork and without any additional cost to me.

I agree, BC has great customer service and awesome return policy that they stand behind!

i want to know if this jacket is as thin...

Posted on

i want to know if this jacket is as thin like the thunder micro down

Responded on

The thunder micro will be a bit thinner because it is a higher grade down, which is naturally more compressible.

My son needs a PNW backpacking winter...

My son needs a PNW backpacking winter jacket combo. Would this work with a waterproof outer shell? Any suggestions? He's 6 ft, long limbed and skinny (32" waist, but barely).

Responded on

Sarah,
This would make a great winter jacket combo under a waterproof shell. It being a down jacket and living in the wet PNW, you may want to look at the Redpoint Jkt which is a Primaloft synthetic option.
Down is lighter and more compressable, but loses insulation properties when it gets wet. The Redpoint is still quite compressable and will keep you warm when wet.

Great go-to jacket

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I love this jacket, it's the perfect go to when the temp drops. I'm 5/10 170 with 34/35 inch arms and had to return medium for large, due to arm length. Jacket is very warm, but comfortable when in a car (not too hot). Very happy with this purchase and see a lot of use from it in the future.

Does anyone know if this shell material...

Posted on

Does anyone know if this shell material is a little more durable being the 50/50 blend and is this a matte or shiny finish? Thanks!

Responded on

Just started getting cold here in WA, so I cannot speak to the durability of the fabric. I own the Noah Green jacket & it is a nice matte finish, not shiny.

Responded on

Hard to describe the finish. It is not wet-look shiny. If it was paint I'd call it egg-shell. The 50/50 blend seems to be a rip-stop type of nylon- I guess I won't know how durable it is until I catch it on something :) By comparison, I also purchased a Columbia Omni Heat interchange liner that weighs about 1/2lb more than the Down. It is a 100% nylon rip-stop glossy, water repellent finish. It's very comparable and can be purchased for as little as $60. Still, nothing is quite as comfortable as down. My problem with both jackets is that you can't get near a campfire because sparks will burn holes in the material.
