    Synthetic that steals the best properties of down.

    Its lightweight loft makes you think The North Face ThermoBall Full-Zip Jacket is a down jacket, but it's actually synthetic. The Primaloft Thermoball insulation acts and even looks like down insulation, providing lofty warmth equivalent to 600-fill down. It even compresses like down jackets so you can stow it in its pocket and take it with you on backpacking or climbing excursions. But because it's synthetic, the ThermoBall stays warm even when you get wet during backcountry ski sessions through powder.

    The ThermoBall features a durable nylon shell that slides under other layers with ease. Its cuffs have an elastic binding to keep the sleeves from riding up your arms. A hem cinch cord tightens to prevent breezes from blowing up your body, and two hand pockets keep your hands warm when you reach the top of the mountain.

    good jacket

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

    The jacket is *extremely* light, which is awesome. It's pretty warm, but not superlatively so (probably not good as your only layer in freezing temperatures). And it definitely runs large -- I'm 5'6" / 135lb / not skinny but size small is still very roomy (but neither arms nor waist are too long); a slimmer fit would be better, but I don't regret the purchase.

    Versatility

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

    One of the best synthetic insulating mid layers out there.

    Fit: Standard North Face semi-athletic fit is perfect and passes the bear hug test for me. (I wear a medium and am 5'10" 160 lb.)

    Temperature regulation: Incredible. I wore this skiing in Maine with -15 F. temps at the summit with only a shell and UA base layer and stayed warm the whole day. At the end of the week the temperature rose to 35 and i was able to wear the same thing and stay comfortable without sweating.

    Odds and ends:
    - Wind resistance: Much better than expected given the small baffle sizes. Wind is only noticeable when greater than 30 mph.
    - Synch cords: Very easy to pull from inside the pockets for quick activation, keeping in extra warmth.
    - Packability: The pocket it stuffs into is quite large (a little bigger than a standard Nalgene), but it can be compressed even further if necessary.

    The one bad thing is that after lots of abrasion to the front i notice small threads of the insulation start to leak out of the baffles and I find myself pulling them out every once in a while. I don't think this will negatively affect the overall insulation but is definitely something to take note of as the jacket does wear after time.

    Overall phenomenal jacket and most definitely worth the investment.

    Warm and Light, Lives up to the Hype!

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

    This jacket will keep you warm as a stand-alone piece, and it's also an awesome insulating layer when worn under a shell on those cold days. My favorite part about the jacket is the fact that it's able to pack into it's own pocket, making it a necessity for when the sun comes out! The sleeves are a perfect length, and it's super lightweight.

    The only issue is it's slightly boxy in the torso area, so I'd size down if you're between sizes!

    Dad Loves It

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

    Bought one of these for my dad and he is not a jacket guy at all. He hasn't been able to stop talking about the jacket and wears it constantly. The fit is great, not too hot, not too cold. Doesn't feel bulky when you wear it. Doesn't take up a lot of space when you need to shed it.

    Finally a puffy jackets that fits right!

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

    My husband was on the hunt for a light-weight puffy jacket to brave the Utah cold - one he could wear outside and inside with warmth but little bulk. He has a more athletic physique and had the hardest time finding a coat to fit him without being too tight on his chest/arms, and too loose around his mid-section. He fell in love with the North Face Quince - but we found the medium ran small, and the large seemed to run a size too large. We tried the Kuhl Spyfire because it was a more athletic fit, but that too ran too small in Med. but too baggy in the mid section in the Large. Finally, we found the North Face therma ball! This one is what they call, ACTIVE FIT/Athletic fit - which means it is cut to fit more snug to the body, but also thin enough to be layered. The large was too bulky, the medium was just right - with some room to spare. It does seem to run a bit large like other customers have noted. He loves it so much he will probably get another color - he got the conquer blue and has got a lot of compliments.

    Perfect for around town on mild days

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

    I hate to be the one to crash the party, but this jacket doesn't have many practical uses. I wanted something that would look good around campus and hold up on weekend backpacking trips. Most jackets are too tight in the arms/chest/shoulders but this one fit perfectly and the elastic cuffs were a nice touch.
    This jacket is also one of the most stylish I've seen. Unfortunately, it's rather fragile. Mine had a tear on a seam along the sleeve's wrist area from day one. It came like this, but I can't imagine getting the jacket caught on a loose branch or skidding against a section of rock.
    As for warmth, it definitely packs a punch for how thin it is, but claiming it's as warm as 600-fill down is a bit of a stretch. I was slightly chilly walking/standing around outside the first time I wore it (40F with light winds). I'd avoid unless you plan on wearing under a shell or need a light, casual jacket.

    Great jacket

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

    Great universal jacket. I bought the conquer blue and have had many compliments on the jacket.

    The North Face jackets are a bit boxy, so I generally go a size down, but the Large could have worked for me as well.

    First Attempt at finding a Puffy Jacket

    • Familiarity:I returned this product before using it

    I bought this for my husband because he LOVED the design, but we had to return it because of the fit. Here are his thoughts:
    "I am 6'2 and 208lbs so I bought the large. It was very baggy around the torso, and yet the sleeves were too short."

    Go To Jacket

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

    This is an awesome and very versatile jacket. Not super heavy weight, but very well insulated and will keep you plenty warm in moderate cold weather. Doesn't do the best in heavy wind, but that is to be expected with this type of jacket. Recently purchased this for my dad who never wears jackets and he is in love with it. Not sure if it is DWR but it does surprisingly well in light rain or snow at keeping you dry and warm.

    Quality

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

    Big on quality and style , thin and light yet very warm . Only thing to know is arms run a little short but I am 6'5 so that's why it gets 5 stars . Also have to add that Backcountry has the best customer service I have ever experienced.

    Expected more for the money

      This jacket is an awesome midlayer, but doesn't hold up well alone. The insulation clumps in those little pockets and allows a ton of warmth or wind to pass through. It seems to get worse with age too. Still decent, just always buy on sale. Not worth the full price. I'd suggest instead the Patagonia micro.

      A Must-Have Option

        This jacket is lightweight, warm, and works well as either a good jacket to have around camp or as a mid-layer for cold weather activities. I use it as a mid-layer with my Resolve jacket for snowshoeing, and it's an ideal combination, unless the temps dip below zero, in which case I'll turn to other heavier options. I also use it as a mid-layer for deer hunting in Northern Wisconsin. It's true to fit, and it has a lot of utility, so I would highly recommend this to anyone.

        A decent jacket but could be better!

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

        I got this jacket in a size medium. I am 5'10 and 150 lbs. The jacket fits pretty well and there is plenty of room to spare. I went with the High Rise Grey/Asphalt Grey color. Looks pretty good. The jacket is really light and packs down small. The two things I don't like about this jacket are the zippers and the warmth. The zipper pulls seem very weak and I have snagged them a few times zipping the jacket. I was able to undo the snag quite easily, but it can get annoying. The jacket is warm but not the warmest. It does great under a very nice shell but just wearing the jacket by its self isn't that warmest. Overall this is a nice jacket but if you get cold easily and you're someone who is tough on jackets I would consider other options!

        Light and warm

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

        Warm jacket but I haven't gotten it out On the trail yet. A little tight across the shoulders so I tried a xl but way too loose. I have an athletic build and the large was right in length. Love the cosmic green color

        Great Fall Jacket

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

        I got this jacket for around camp and have never regretted it! I have taken it on several climbing trips as my belay jacket in cooler canyons where I was the perfect temperature and never restricted. The small pack size and light weight makes it easy to carry in when you don't need it hiking but use it as soon as you stop. Plus, the blue looks killer!

        My only complaint is the sleeve cuffs don't slide over a mountaineering watch very well... but I haven't found a jacket that has yet.

        Great Fall Jacket

        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,

        Joel

        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.
