    The warmth of down, minus the Achilles' heel.

    The North Face Men's ThermoBall Hooded Insulated Jacket has the warmth of a 600-fill down jacket coupled with the wet-weather performance of synthetic insulation. Primaloft Thermoball synthetic insulation looks and acts like the round clusters that make up down insulation, retaining body heat so you stay warm in a lightweight and lofty jacket. It also compresses like down so you can stow it in its own pocket and pack it without sacrificing much space. The ThermoBall features a durable nylon shell that makes layering easy. Elasticized bindings around the cuffs and hood help retain body heat, and a hem cinch-cord tightens so warmth is retained while you ski, climb, hike, and play all over the mountains.

    • Dependable insulation for the trail, crag, or slopes
    • Primaloft Thermoball insulation is comparable to down in warmth
    • Water-resistant fill retains insulating properties when wet
    • Durable ripstop fabric with DWR resists wear and moisture
    • Drawcord hem and adjustable hood can be drawn tight to trap heat
    • Compressible design allows jacket to pack down small
    • Active fit layers well under shells and looks good on its own
    • Item #TNF00V2

    Sizing..

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

    Want to love this jacket but it's cut very poorly.. I'm usually an XL due to my wide shoulders and long arms but I read it ran large so I bought smaller. Still, theres about an extra 2 inches circumference in the sleeves. Like they're made for shrek.
    I also measured it in the chest and waist, both were 49" around! Pretty far from an athletic fit unless you're shaped like a 55 gallon drum.

    Sticking to my Omni-Heat for now I guess.

    Great Buy

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

    Very sharp looking jacket, goes with everything. I wore it outside yesterday morning in 28 degree weather with just a t-shirt underneath and felt perfectly warm. You will not regret this purchase.

    Comfort Fit

    • Size Bought: XXL

    I received this jacket a couple of weeks ago and have not had much of a chance to wear it. It is very comfortable and fits great. I have the theromball pullover and love the weight and the warmth, so this was a perfect jacket to add to the collection. It also looks stylish and I need all the help I can get in that category. If you are looking for a casual, comfortable, warm jacket, and looks great, this is the one for you.

    Just buy it.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This last winter I purchased my first Thermoball to tackle the harsh winter of Northern Utah. Its first true test was a trip to Moab in February of 2016. The jacket was nothing less of a miracle throwing on before I got out of my sleeping bag at 3 AM to be some of the first people to catch a shot of Mesa Arch in Canyonlands. Combine it with any TNF fleece as an under layer or even by itself with a long sleeve and you're ready to take on any cold you may run into. The functionality of collapsing into its own pocket makes it a perfect partner to whip out on the trail or on a wall in a hurry to beat the freeze. Highly recommend the hooded version, but the other versions of the Thermoball paired with the right layers make any of them a great buy for the avid adventurer willing to take on the chill. It does run a tad large, so make sure you try it on at the store before purchasing.

    Just buy it.

    You want this jacket.

    Comfy. Breathable yet warm. Very Light. Packs down nicely. You want this jacket....especially with a hood.

    dis-Like the cut of your jib

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    What is TNF thinking making a strange super wide barrel cut in the body. Its like a cylinder? There is alot of extra space in this thing. Im 6'2 185 lbs and got a medium. For me its a great length in the body and arms. Having extra space in the body means extra air to heat and heat loss through convection. bad design. Ive had it out touring and around town so far. For very casual outings its an ok jacket, especially for the price. Its a tad thin for my preference. Id say its made to be worn while moving and you dont want to stop too long. If they gave it an athletic cut and added about %25 more insulation I think it would be a phenomenal jacket.

    (btw wearing my like 2010 stoic ski bibs, great, great, product!)

    Always in my pack! Can be used in a wide range of temps, from 25° to 50°, if you layer the correct way can be effective in lower temps. Very light and compresses to a small size. I bought the large which provides a little room for layering. In fact, I liked the jacket so much I bought the thermoball vest for an extra layer, great combination. The sleeve cuffs are unique in a good way, very light weight. Wish it had micro fleece pocket lining and Napoleon pocket. BC always provides excellent customer service. Bought it on sale but after wearing it in the Cascades, Desert SW I still would pay $200 for it.

    Great Jacket!!!

    The north face thermoball is a very impressive jacket. It's light weight, low profile, and easy to pick away at a moments notice. It does seem to run a little on the large side (I ordered a large and am 6'1 180ish lbs) and was roomy in the biceps as well as around the waist. I was amazed how such a light jacket could keep you so warm in the slightest of activities. Also cool feature not mentioned in the item description was that on the scallion green option the lining is a light looking camo pattern. Well worth it!

    Great Jacket

    I was wanting a down jacket and ended up getting the ThermoBall hooded jacket and I really love it. Based on recommendations, I got the medium (I'm 6'2", 165 - usually wear a 34-35 inch sleeve length) and it fits perfectly.

    When I first pulled it out I really had my doubts. It's pretty light weight and thin. But, it is warm, especially if you layer! I have no issues down to about 40 and a little lower if you layer right. It is also fairly wind resistant. I live in Oklahoma (where the wind does come sweeping down the plains) and it does a pretty good job of keeping the wind out.

    Things I like: The fit is really good. The weight - I forget it's on. It is warm, yet it doesn't get hot.
    Things I don't like: The hood is weird, I guess if you have a ball cap on it's ok. Also, It doesn't zip in to my NorthFace tri-climate shell.
    Wish list: I wish it had an inside pocket and/or a Napoleon pocket (on the outside ).

    All in all, I love it and will probably get another in a different color.

    This thing is magic

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    • Size Bought: Small

    I absolutely love this jacket. First thing you need to know, they run quite large. I wear a medium in everything I own, except this jacket. I bought a small and there is plenty of room for layers without it becoming constricted. I live in Mississippi and the weather here is never too extreme. I can quite comfortably wear this jacket over a t-shirt in temps 32-50 F. It handles layers quite well as I wore a baselayer and a North Face Fleece and was toasty at wind chills of -1 F in Northern Arkansas a few weeks ago. My favorite part of this jacket is how well it breathes, hence the magic part. I can go from freezing temps outside to heated buildings and not even have to take this jacket off. I'll be hot for maybe 5 minutes until the jacket regulates itself. Then I'm extremely comfortable. I love the way this jacket fits and how thin it is. I would definitely recommend this jacket.

    So this is my go-to jacket for a variety of conditions. It's extremely lightweight and packs down in its own pocket. This feature alone makes it very appealing for those who wish to travel fast and light. Its works great as a layer for backcountry touring as the primaloft insulation keeps you nice n toasty. It also makes a great belay jacket for staying warm while your partner is lost halfway up the pitch basking in the sun taking their sweet time while they leave you down in the windy shadows to freeze. Not in this jacket, i can sit patiently while staying warm. I took this jacket down to northern patagonia with me and it was my first choice when sitting around the campfire at night, or underneath the boulder bivy trying to hide from the rain, because of the sheer comfort it provided. It also makes a great pillow. It does however run a little loose, im 5'11 165lbs and was thinking i might go with a med instead of a large next time. It also has two outside pockets for storing gear and other randoms, and also has adjustable sinch chords to tighten things up around the waist and neck. Overall i would definitely recommend this jacket to anyone for almost any outdoor activity!

    My New Favorite Jacket

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

    This jacket is the best all around city jacket I have ever owned. It is light weight and packable as well as super warm. I can wear this jacket in 20 degree weather by itself and be totally fine. It also works great as an insulation layer. I use this under my waterproof shell when I go snowboarding and it keeps me super warm. I am about 5 11" and like larger jackets so I decided to go with a large and I love the fit. It is a shorter jacket than I am used to but it is a normal active fit jacket.

    Where's the inside pocket(s)???

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

    Jacket packs a lot of heat into a light weight shell but I can't for the life of me figure out why there are no inside chest pockets??? Trying to carry my phone in the hand pockets is not working for me.

    I have 46" chest.. What size should I get? Large or xl

    Unanswered Question

    I want to buy this jacket for my husband for Christmas, but i have already returned 3 jackets to Columbia as their sizes run very large. So here I am trying North Face. My husband is 6 ft tall and 154 lb. He has athletic slim figure, but always buys medium for all his clothing. I read conflicting reviews here...some say it runs large, some say true to size. Should I buy small or medium of The North Face ThermoBall Hooded Insulated Jacket for him?

    Hi. I'm 6ft 2in and 200 lbs. I was thinking a large for me. What do you think? I have long arm too. Thanks.

    Paul

    I'm buying the ThemoBall as a gift for my college-aged son. He is 6 ft. and 175 pounds but he has a really long back. Should I get the medium or the large? He hates when coats "ride up"...

    If I am 6 ft 2 255 lbs should I get a xl or xxl

    I am 5''9' 140 lb, usually I were M, what size should i choose for this jacket

    How does this jacket hold up in rainfall and wind? I'm looking at the Mountain Hardwear Quasar for $300 but would love to save the money if the ThermoBall would be as good.

    Joshua,



    I absolutely love this jacket. Unfortunately it isn't water proof. However because of the type of insulation they use (Primaloft) It will keep you warm in wet conditions, and will hold up after those wears in wet conditions.



    As for being wind proof: It is completely windproof . It also offers elastic inside the sleeve to prevent wind from creeping up your sleeve into the main cavity of the jacket.



    Let us know if you have any additional questions!

    Unanswered Question

    Does anyone know how the stitching of this jacket holds up compared to the stitching of the Patagonia Nano-puff? I've lost stitching pretty easily and often with the Nano-puff.

    Is this jacket warm enough by itself for everyday wear in Michigan winter?The temperatures range here from 40F to -10F with the average being around 20 F.

    I'd like to find a winter jacket that's good for everyday wear (to classes, run errands, etc) in Michigan. If you have any other recommendations, please let me know. My budget is under $200

    Best Answer

    Probably not. I think you'll find that the wind cuts through this pretty quick and you'll lose a lot of heat through convection. Better to go with something with a little sturdier shell.



    This piece is more intended to go under a shell... or as an outer layer on dry days without wind.

    Hey Ish, So you're going to want something with a lot of insulation. I'd suggest going with something like a "belay jacket" made to be super warm and go over anything you're wearing. Also, down will keep you warmer than synthetic. A good 650 down jacket should be in your price range.

    Good luck, I hear its cold out there..
