    Packs the warmth of down with the benefits of synthetics.

    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. The innovative Primaloft Thermoball synthetic insulation looks and acts like 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. But because it's synthetic insulation, you stay warm even when the jacket gets wet.

    The ThermoBall features a durable nylon shell that makes layering easy. Elasticized bindings around the cuffs and hood help retain your heat. A hem cinch-cord tightens so warmth is retained while you ski, climb, hike, and play all over the mountains.

    Great Jacket!!!

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

    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

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

    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.

    Fantastic

      I actually have this jacket and ended up getting the same one for my dad. We both love this jacket and it is great for all different activities. It is very breathable so you are able to work hard in it without overheating. If it is cold outside then this jacket will keep you nice and warm. I sometimes will wear this under a ski jacket she'll on a very cold day and be perfectly warm. I would say does fit true to size. I am 6'5" and weigh 190. I got an XL.

      New go-to jacket.

      • Fit:True to size
      • Size Bought: Large

      Overall, Im pleased with my new jacket. I tried this on after reading some of the reviews about size. If you wear a large in other North Face jackets, (I have a mountain light and apex bionic ), you'll be comfortable in a large.

      North face made a few strange decisions though: I'm coming from a red point jacket and miss the chest pocket. Also, NF cute the hand warmer pockets across the insulation instead of lining up with the seams, which gives the jacket a strange drape when you wear it. Finally, the lining is a thinner material than the outside, which is already really thin, and it makes me concerned for the jackets durability.

      Awesome jacket!

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

      I purchased this jacket a few weeks ago, and since that time I have worn it in a variety of places and under a variety of conditions, including lots of ice rinks (to watch my kids play hockey), Colorado ski resorts during snow storms, and even in 50-60 degree temps on the east coast. The jackets seems to adopt to the environment. In cold weather, it keeps me warm; in warmer weather, it gives me the layer I need without making me sweat. It is light as a feather and is great for travel. I literally stuffed it into my briefcase, and when pulled out, it was no worse for the wear. This is an incredible jacket. I liked it so much, I bought another in a second color!

      Is it SUPPOSED to look like this?

      Just got my order of this jacket, but...is it supposed to be blotchy with what looks to me like bleach splatter stains on the inside of the jacket?

      Is it SUPPOSED to look like this?

      Runs LARGE

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

      Agree with others that this jacket runs very large. Both my son and husband are physically fit and lift weights for fitness (but not to extreme steroid appearance). Bought their normal sizes: Medium for college son (155 lbs., 5'10") and Large for husband (175lbs., 6 ft.) but had to size down to a Small and Medium. They were so huge that it was completely obvious to size down. If you can, try on in a store to be sure.

      Likey. Likey very much.

      First of all, I have to say that I'm a big fan of TNF products. While it is kind of sad that the brand has been hijacked by the fashion-conscious city lubbers, they do make pretty damn good gear, I own quite a bit of it, and I definitely put it to good use.

      Ever since the Thermoball jacket was introduced by The North Face I've been curious about it. I finally decided to pull the trigger and get it, and I have to say I'm glad I did.

      For those that have been living under a rock or on Mars for the past little while, The North Face introduced Thermoball insulation a couple of years ago. The idea behind it was to simulate down as close as possible while still maintaining the best qualities of synthetic insulation, i.e. it keeps you warm even when wet. Whether or not they succeeded is a matter of debate, but as for my personal opinion, I think they came pretty damn close.

      Weighing at a shade over 13oz, it's a pretty lightweight jacket and packs down into its own pocket. It's not as compressible as down, but you can still get it down to a respectable size, so it's very packable.

      Performance wise, I give the jacket two thumbs up. The first thing I noticed when I put it on was that I felt warm, as in "just right" warm. I never got to a point where I felt too warm in temps ranging from 10 degrees to 45 degrees (Farenheit...sorry metric lovers!) which led me to the conclusion that this is a jacket that will do well in a wide variety of temperatures. I also noticed the wind resistance was pretty good in moderate breezes, although strong winds will get through eventually. The jacket also sheds light rain and snow pretty well, although if the conditions turn biblical you'll definitely want your hardshell over it.

      The only gripe I have is the fit. TNF advertises this as an active fit, but I found it to be a little roomy. My normal size is a large, but I suspect I could probably get away with a medium. Not a deal breaker as the jacket does still fit good, but I think it should have been advertised as more of a regular fit. I would advise trying the jacket on if possible before you buy.

      Overall, I'm very impressed with this jacket. The North Face has done a commendable job of trying to simulate as close as possible the thermal and compression qualities of down in a synthetic insulated jacket. It's warm, weather resistant, light and packable. Definitely a jacket that will see regular use.

      Never leave the house without it

      What should be a staple in every adventurer's closet, the puffy, the hooded thermoball jacket is a must have. Whether hiking, skiing, or fishing, I always have this jacket with me. Be warned, as others have pointed out, this jacket runs BIG. I originally ordered the large and and it swallowed me. Medium definitely fits better.

      One of the coolest features of this jacket, and of other synthetic down jackets, is its ability to retain heat even when wet. I made the mistake of heading out on a hike without a shell, and while the thermoball got absolutely soaked, I still was able to retain body heat. My only complaint about it is that it isn't super breathable for when you are really moving around- if you plan on using a thermoball for skiing, I would recommend the vest... you won't regret it.

      His ALL The Time Jacket

      • Fit:True to size

      I recently purchased this as a birthday present for my father, and he hasn't taken it off since he got it. We recently did a Euro trip and he wore it hiking, and around the cities. I'm pretty sure it will be his go-to touring, skiing, hiking, and around town jacket all winter long.

      His ALL The Time Jacket

      Love the jacket, but one small complaint

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

      I bought this jacket as a mid/outer layer for my trip to China in the winter. It kept me nice and warm, and it is so compressible. The jacket also had good ventilation, so my back wasn't all wet. I even wear the jacket a few times during March in California, I didn't over heat at all.
      One complaint is the stitching on the sleeve of the jacket, some of the stitches came loose, not a deal breaker, but it would be nice to have nicer quality.

      Great Jacket

      Look forward to taking it into mountains of Lesotho to see if it holds up. Nice and light and extremely packable.

      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..
