Description

Synthetic pretending to be down.

The North Face Women's Thermoball Hooded Insulated Jacket combines the protective qualities of synthetic with the lightweight loft of down. PrimaLoft's innovative ThermoBall insulation mimics down feathers in order to provide the warmth you'd feel in most 600-fill down jackets, and it protects you from moisture in the same way that quick-drying synthetic insulation is known for. Unlike most synthetic insulations however, ThermoBall makes this jacket so compressible that it can fit in its own pocket. When stowed, a carabiner loop clips to harnesses and backpacks for compact travel.

  • ThermoBall synthetic insulation
  • Elastic-bound hood
  • Elastic-bound cuffs
  • Zippered hand pockets
  • Stows in hand pocket

Great jacket!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Height: 5' 7"
    Weight: 150 lbs
    Size Purchased: Medium

This jacket is so light-weight and comfortable, but it also really keeps you warm! I thought with it being so light that it would lack in insulation, but I was wrong! I find the jacket to be true to size. Love it, would definitely recommend!

Not as durable as I'd like

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Height: 5' 7"
    Weight: 125 lbs
    Size Purchased: Medium

You know, I just can't quite get behind loving this jacket. I was really excited for it, especially because of the color. I bought a greystone blue (which is really more of a neutral purple) and with the interior teal color, I was really happy excited about the colors. I got a Medium, although I wish I had purchased a Small. It still works, but is just a little more loose in the torso and shoulders than it needs to be.
My issue with this jacket is the quality. I feel as if the jacket started falling apart and looking warn out way too soon. I really haven't done anything too crazy in it, and only wore it for 4-6 weeks before some of the threads started coming out and were dangling off the jacket. That combined with synthetic threads coming out makes for an old looking month old coat. Also the zipper on the pockets are really great to have but I've had some issues with the zipper breaking as well. This jacket is not durable at all. For a durable puffy, look elsewhere.

North Face changed Pattern and Fit

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small

Last year I purchased a 2013 Thermoball full zip jacket in Medium size, it fit great and I love the jacket! This year I got the Thermoball Hoodie in Medium, and it is a huge disappointment! North Face changed the pattern and this hoodie jacket is way too small in the shoulders and armpits, and it restricts movement of arms across your biceps. They also made more of a curve down the waist to hips, so if you order a size up, it will be too big. Overall this jacket is great except for the new fit. I have been a NF customer for over 20 years, but with factories now in Asia, the sizing of their products have changed, and they have reduced size and number of pockets on the garments. Manufacturers really need to consider moving factories back to the USA, we need the jobs and better sizing consideration for body structure. On another note, beware of purchasing NF products on eBay, most are fake, so stick with reputable retailers like Backcountry.

Backcountry is awesome with great customer service, I have shopped with them for years and will continue to do so! Thanks!

I agree wholeheartedly with moving factories back to the USA, but as someone who is not obese or overweight in any way, I am continually annoyed with the bottom of jackets being too wide, allowing heat loss and wind to blow right up. And most cuts are boxy these days, with no taper in the waistline. The asian production pattern is small in the shoulders and wide in the waist?a wide waist on an XS?!

Responded on

If NF would return to the 2013 pattern of this hoodie, I'd buy it again in Greystone Blue or equivalent grey, blue or green shades. It is a nice jacket other than fit. Had to return the 2014 model.

Light, warm and comfy

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

I bought this jacket in black a couple weeks ago and I've been wearing it almost everyday since then!

It's great for windy times and it's also water repellent, perfect for the Oregon weather (it probably won't be enough for super cold winters though).

I took my usual size, medium, and it fits well.

Great lightweight jacket

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

I recently purchased this jacket in the greystone blue color. I was very thrown off by the color I actually got. I was hoping for something silver looking, but instead my jacket looks more blue/purple. Here's a photo to better show the color. Also I wear a size medium and I know I have long arms, but this cuts off a little bit shorter on the wrists than I would have liked. Otherwise it is a great lightweight jacket, protecting me from the chilly wind.

Hi! Just wondering why the zipper of this Greystone Blue Thermoball is a different color from the stock photos (I like it better!)? Is this a 2013 version maybe? What color is the NF logo and the lining? Thanks!

Responded on

Hi! The NF logo and lining are a light turquoise color. I'm not sure if it's an older version, I'll have to check and get back to you. I ended up liking this color too!

Responded on


Looks like this color is now out of stock, but this picture and your description match the current greystone blue. Here's the link to TNF:

Maybe our picture was wrong? I'll check it out - if we have more on order I'll hit up the Gurus to have it changed.
OR it may have been studio lighting, as Lara LaBar said in her review below!

This jacket makes everyone jealous. RAD!

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

I bought this jacket for my sister in law's birthday, and she loves it! Says it one of her favorite!! She gets compliments everywhere she goes. Here's what she had to say:

Fits perfect! The best part about the jacket is how light it is for the warmth it can produce. This thing weighs next to nothing. Its great for casual wear or for the workplace. Here's a pic of me rockin it in the wild!

The perfect compact jacket

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

So far I'm loving my first North Face jacket. It's definitely not warm enough for a Midwest winter but I wouldn't expect something so thin to be. It works well for those high 40s and low 50s kind of days. I love that it's not puffy but still warm and can easily fit in my purse/bag. On cool days I actually find myself sweating in this and I get cold all the time! It fits perfectly and still give you some shape and the hood perfectly covers my head without having to tuck it down. I have very long arms and a broad shoulder for my height (5' 3") but the XS fits great. The arm length might be long if you have shorter arms. It is definitely not as iridescent as as the photo (I purchased the High Rise Grey) and it's more of a stormy grey than white. I thought it would be lighter but it's fine because it's less likely to get dirty.

Not quite as light (or iridescent) as the studio shots...

Responded on

Wow that is a huge difference. Awesome, I like this shade better!

Responded on

Hi - looks like the Greystone Blue on Lara LaBar's post is more like dark gray, which is very different than the stock photo, which looks more like grayish silver. Which one is it really? Trying to confirm before I make a purchase. Thanks!

Responded on

It's somewhere between Camilla's photo and mine. It's not as light as the stock photo, though.

Great fit for a lady

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

Nice fit around the curves, hood face opening fits nicely. Not super warm, which is nice for summer/fall nights, other downs can get too hot. The color is nice too.

I'm looking for a new winter jacket to survive the Polar Vortex in MN. Is this jacket not going to cut it? I'd like something ultra warm, but not super bulky.

Responded on

I agree - is this not super warm for winter? I already have a lightweight puffy and am looking for a warmer one.

Responded on

I have both a Thermoball jacket and a Thunder jacket (which is also lightweight). The Thermoball seems good for 30-50 degree days (layered with a light sweater). Any day below 30, I reach for the Thunder (no layering required). I guess if you are okay with adding more layers - maybe a wool sweater or a fleece half zip? - the Thermoball could work in below 30 temps. Of course, this is all subjective! Based on NF's videos, Thermoball should be good for climbing snowy mountains! :)
