    Synthetic that steals the best properties of down.

    Snowshoe through the Rockies this winter in lightweight, toasty comfort with The North Face Men's ThermoBall Full-Zip Insulated Jacket. PrimaLoft ThermoBall insulation mimics the look and feel of down, trapping warmth to keep you cozy, even in extreme temperatures. It even compresses like down, so you can stow it in a pocket and take it with you wherever you go. And because it's synthetic, the ThermoBall stays warm, even when you get wet during backcountry ski session through powder.

    The ThermoBall features a nylon shell that's durable enough to be worn on its own and slides easily under other layers. Its cuffs have an elastic binding to keep your sleeve from riding up your arms, while the adjustable hem tightens to prevent drafts. Pockets keep your hands warm when you reach the lookout point, and can be zipped closed to keep essentials secure on the return trip back to the car.

    • An insulated jacket for versatile outdoor protection
    • Durable, water-resistant shell for long-lasting use
    • ThermoBall insulation mimics down for intense heat, even when wet
    • Stand up collar offers extra protection
    • Adjustable hem and elastic cuffs seal out drafts
    • Zippered pockets keep essentials secure

    What do you think about this product?

    Have questions about this product?

    Light weight and warm

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: L

    Best jacket I have owned. You get what you pay for i guess, perfect for me in the 20 degree weather with a bit of wind.

    Would not recommend the fusebox grey

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: small

    fusebox grey looks nice in the pictures, but in person is looks and feels very cheap. I have had a hooded thermoball jacket for years and the fabric is nothing like this. To get the faux texture look they must have used something completely different. the texture is not real texture. It is a print. Arms are also too baggy, but TNF seems to be doing that on all of their jackets these days. I think the nano-puff jacket has a superior fit and construction.

    Nice light puffer

      Got this for a fall trip to Wyoming. I'd say it runs just a tad big. I'm 6 feet 205lbs and a large fit me well, I usually like XLs better for a lot of tops. It's a light puff coat. Comfortable to the 40s, but not super heavy on its own. Versatile enough to to wear out casually or for some hiking. Easy to pack. Synthetic and durable. Could layer it, but it's not an winter coat for outdoors. Combines well with a rain shell for windy conditions.

      So can this jacket be worn as a top layer when temps fall down to the 40s to 30s with a long-sleeve shirt and a lightweight fleece?

      Sounds like the jacket is warm ONLY for active sports or when temps are warmer as in 50s or as an insulating layer under a shell/insulated jacket in colder temps.

      May not consider wearing in Cold New England winter weather as a top layer when temps are in the 30s-40s and winds can be blustery and brutal.

      Thanks!

      Runs wide

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: Runs large

      North Face quality but fit is very weird. The body of the jacket and the sleeves run wide. Fit is just too "regular" for modern day styles. It keeps you warm and is light weight.

      Awesome!

      This is my second thermoball I've purchased. Great weight and pack able. Extremely warm with or without layering. Looks good and these jackets a really are durable! Excellent pricing and true to fit!

      So you know

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: Runs large
      • Size Bought: Small

      I think this is a great jacket. I had ordered one in the past, but had to return it because it was too big. I normally wear a medium but their medium is a little bit larger. I went to a store to try on their jackets and found out that there are two types of fits: normal and active fit. The active fit hugs you a little tighter which I prefer. When I went to order this one online I didn't see an option to choose between the two types, but ordered a size lower and figured I'd just see which one came. I received the active fit and it fits perfectly. I'm 5'8, 155lbs. I have long arms and this still fit fine.

      I was under the impression the jacket came with a pouch to store it in, but it just rolls into its own pocket (which is very easy to do). Overall I'm satisfied with the jacket. I haven't had to use it in very cold weather yet, but I assume if I did I would wear it underneath another layer. It's very lightweight and easy to move around in. I don't think this is a standalone jacket for very cold weather, but will do the trick for typical cold weather (hope that's not confusing).

      Love NF

      • Size Bought: Large

      I got this jacket to save weight while backpacking. I hiked the Smoky Mountain last week. 5 day 75 miles. Had this jacket and a thin rain jacket. Coldest night was 25F and 20mph winds. I felt fine walking around the shelter. Stuff it in its own pocket and makes a warm pillow. With winds lil high it did block a lot when worm by its self. It is super light and compacts smaller than a football. It does exactly what I wanted it to. Doesn't sweat me when the temp goes up. Zipper works good. Would be nice to have a inside pocket. I asked ppl on the trail how they like there's and no complaints as of yet.
      I'm 6'1 180 lbs and ordered a large. Fits me just right with enough room to add a thermal shirt if it gets colder than 35F.
      It has the fill or a field jacket liner with a thin layer of soft material on the inside..so it's nice and comfortable.
      Fits about like my Apex bionic.

      My Mens' ThermoBall Jacket

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Small

      This is a very nice and extremely light weight jacket. It isn't made for freezing temperatures put is god for a light rain and cool weather, just as advertised. I feel I should get a lot of use and it's a good investment.

      Great packable jacket.

      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
      • Fit: Runs large

      This is a great casual winter jacket. It works great as a standalone jacket in temperatures in the 30's and up. Great as a layering piece for skiing or when it gets colder. It is really low profile and low bulk, while retaining heat really well. It will be perfect for camping and backpacking. It packs down nicely into its own hand pocket. Great versatile insulated jacket. I do think it runs a little large. If you're in between sizes, go down.

      Can't go wrong with a North Face

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

      So I got this for a buddy of mine and this is what he told me about the jacket.

      I absolutely love this jacket, the thermoball synthetic material is a worthy down rival without a doubt. I was a little skeptical about going with this material over the down but my skepticism held no merit in the end. The jacket is light and folds into one of the side pockets for easy stowing when space is tight on a trip. I would recommend this jacket to anyone who is looking for a mid layer jacket that can hold it's own in temperatures down to mid to high 30's. Overall, an awesome buy!

      Great Layer

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: large

      This jacket is super lite and easy to compress into a backpack to use as an additional layer...just in case. I bought a large and it is good fit. I am pleased with the investment!

      Great lightweight winter jacket!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: large

      Lightweight and warm. Not bulky at all. Jacket looks really cool. XL was very bulky so I got the L.. Arm length is excellent and body length was just barely long enough, but OK. Feathers poked out of NF Aconcagua and Patagonia Down Sweater so I returned them for ThermoBall. Don't recommend down!

      Great Jacket

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: XL

      This jacket is light and provides a nice mid-weight layer. It can be worn alone or with a shell. I have worn it from the Oregon coast to the mountains and it has kept me warm. I like the fit, enough room to not be restrictive to movement. It would be perfect if there were vents.

      Great Jacket

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: XL

      Lightweight jacket that fits very well and is warm enough to withstand the cold. I've worn it in -15 (short duration) without being uncomfortable. Also great looking for a night out.

      Not as warm as I'd have expected

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Medium

      I have to say that based on the reviews here on Backcountry and the North Face's own description of this jacket being as a warm as 600-fill power down, I'm very disappointed. I run on the very warm side as it is and found this jacket to be way short of the warmth described. With a long-sleeve shirt on and nominal activity levels, this jacket is barely, if at all, warmer than a jacket with 60g of Primaloft Silver or Gold. Given it's described as 600-fill equivalent, I'd have expected way more in the way of warmth. I was also disappointed by the amount of wind resistance this jacket has. In 30 knot winds, you could feel a lot of that through the seams between the pockets of Thermoball.

      Thanks for posting a very hard to find comment re warmth of the jacket in colder weather.
      Sounds like this jacket is meant for relatively warmer weather as in 40F and up or when one is active outdoors but not meant for colder, windy wintery weather when it really gets chilly, at least for a top layer.
      Generally, down will almost always be warmer than synthetic materials for warmth.
      Thanks!

      Is this jacket machine washable?

      Yes. I wash mine all the time with warm water, under a gentle cycle. The DWR finish will probably come off-unless you use a specialty cleaner like Nikwax. I use the little detergent balls and toss this in with some microfiber towels to aide in re-fluffing this jacket during the dry cycle. Oh, and you can dry it with low heat. Its loft bounces back to normal much easier than any down jacket I've ever owned.

      what temperatures does this jacket handle? (rough guess is fine) and is it good for an outer jacket for skiing in relatively dry ski conditions? (ie not snowing or raining)

      I run a hair cold, but heat up fast. I'm comfortable sitting still wearing just this and a cotton t shirt in roughly 40-50 degree weather. If I'm setting up camp/unpacking or arranging pads/brushing holds/putting shoes on, I have to unzip it or take it off. With a R1 fleece underneath I'm solid down to the 30's just chilling as well.



      I don't have an answer for your second question :(

      Erick - I have used this jacket snowshoeing in light dry snow and it was perfect. I was a lot more wet on the inside from sweat than on the outside from any precipitation. Even at the end of the day when there was a fair amount of moisture in the jacket, it still kept me plenty warm.

      Hi what size you recomend me in this jacket im 5.6' and i weight 183. let me now thank.

      Unanswered Question

      Hi! I'm 6'3" and 185 pounds. I'm muscular, but nothing crazy and I've got a short upperbody compared to my long legs. I don't like baggy jackets but I would like to fit a college sweater under the jacket without it looking way too tight. I must be able to move in it and on a side note I have really long arms aswell. What would be my best fit?

      Hi I am a 5`9`` height and 176 lbs rather muscular, but not that much, should I get a small? I dont like baggy stuff

      I actually tried these on in a store and was surprised to see how well a small fit on me. (5'10" 195lbs.--athletic) If you are going to use this as a midlayer underneath and not anything much underneath you may want the small. My only advice is if your waist is above 34" definitely size up. 32 waist is good with small.

      Hi, Im 6'3" and 160lbs. What would be my the best fit for me? I think a medium looking at the size and fit.

      A medium good for me, being 5'8" 155? Buying as a second layer on top of base, under shell for snowboarding. Also can anyone give a size reference when packed, will be tossing in my pack for winter hikes.

      A medium is probably a good size for you, especially as a second layer. Slightly smaller than a nalgene bottle when packed into its pocket. However, you can still compress it a lot more; so if you need it to occupy an even smaller space, you can make that happen.

      Hi,

      I'm looking at a middle layer for layering. I'm 6' tall and weigh about 235. Just wondering if this would layer well under my Columbia rain jacket.

      Thanks!

      How's the breathability on this jacket (say as compared to fleece or down)? Looking at it as a midlayer for skiing.

      Best Answer

      Not bad. It's not waterproof, so that allows your body to breath better than other materials. For skiing you would be just fine. High-exertion activities will make you sweat a bit more--especially in warmer temps. But, if you get too warm, you can take it off and stuff it (literally) in your pack with no worries.

      Is this Jacket the one included with the Men's TNF Thermoball Triclimate Insulated Jacket ?

      http://www.backcountry.com/the-north-face-thermoball-triclimate-insulated-jacket-mens?CMP_ID=sm_twitPDP

      I am looking for a mid-layer. I live in Edmonton, Canada, and it gets pretty cold here. I want the jacket for daily use, skiing, and hiking. I current have my arcteryx alpha LT (size large)as a shell. Do you think this would work as a mid-layer? If not can you recommend another jacket?

      cheers,

      Hey Joe

      Whether or not this jacket will meet your needs really depends on what you plan on using it for. I don't think there is such thing as a one size fits all / perfect for every condition jacket. That being said, I was impressed by how warm the thermoball is for as light as the jacket is. This isn't going to be a severe weather jacket. If you're wanting something to insulate on the coldest days, I would look for something else - I recommend looking at the Arcteryx Cerium or Thorium (again, depending on needs).

      Hi guys, I know there are a lot of new synthetics going onto the market these days, and I was wondering which one had the highest warmth to weight ratio? The TNF Thermoball here, (supposedly the same as 600-fill down), the Mountain Hardwear Thermal Q. Elite or good old Primaloft One?

      Curious to know the answer,

      Thanks

      Best Answer

      Hey Lance,

      I don't know how helpful this is to you since I haven't tried Thermal Q Elite, and I'm still a fan of Primaloft One, but as far as synthetics go, I was actually impressed with the warmth of the TNF Thermoball. I used it as one of my go to jackets for cold mornings in Northern Utah last year. It seemed to be very packable and lightweight as well. I don't know that you can go wrong with a new piece that uses any of these three insulators so I'd definitely look at the other features on the jackets and let that help you decide as well. Our gearheads would be happy to go through some options with you if you give them a call or initiate a live chat.

      I think the Thermoball has great functionality in wet environments or when it might get soaked. Gear Junkie did a review and literally dropped it in a creek then wore it on a hike and was fine. If you can keep it completely dry the Thermal Q is going to be warmer. Its warmer because it’s designed to mimic the structure of goose down – rigid stems that form a matrix of gaps and softer fibers to fill those gaps. The result is a warmer synthetic whose structure gives it better compression rebound.
