Toasty insulation, chic sophistication.

Perfectly at home in freezing, fashion-forward cities like Montreal, Chicago, or New York, The North Face Women's Transit Down Jacket provides fiery insulation within a chic, slimmed-down silhouette. This stylish jacket features a durable nylon taffeta shell that's treated with a Durable Water Repellant to shed snow flurries and light showers. Its recycled polyester taffeta lining and brushed chin guard provide a cozy-comfortable feel that won't irritate sensitive facial skin when it's fully zipped.

Shielding your core from frigid temperatures and nasty cold snaps, the jacket's 550-fill down insulation offers heat-trapping loft without weighing you down. In addition, the jacket's angled quilting helps it retain a slimmed-down look without sacrificing insulation.

The jacket's two-way center front zipper allows you to instantly ventilate without removing layers, and concealed zipper hand pockets make a great place to warm your hands, should you forget your gloves at home. In addition, the jacket's internal media pocket has a cord port, helping you seamlessly route your favorite earbuds or headphones for easy listening.

Leaky Feathers

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

I Loved the way the jacket looks and feels. But within a week of purchasing it, feathers started pouring out of the stitches. I exchanged it for another Transit, and noticed the same issues. It is very disappointing that such a great looking jacket has such cheap issues going on for it.

My coat is nice but all the feathers are coming out. It is a black coat and it looks a hot mess . You can see them all on the coat. Can someone please contact me at 3364861020. Janine Roberts. So I can return it or get another one.

Had to return!

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

This coat is great for appearance only! I only worn it for a few weeks and I had to return it because a lot of the feathers where coming out, especially at the cross stitching. I kind of expect that from a down coat but these feathers were coming out of the cheap material too quickly after 1-2weeks and it is thinly insulated to begin my decision was that is it not worth $250 and is an immediate return. I was VERY bummed out that I had to return a coat that LOOKED so good.

Great jacket!!

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

I love this coat! Wore it during super cold weather we experienced this week in NYC and it kept me super warm, also wore it during thr crazy rainy day and it dried so fast like 10 mins after being really wet. Couldn't be happier with it...EXCEPT for the escaping feathers. I read lots of reviews that also stated this so I'm not surprised or mad...north face website says it's normal for new items when the down hasn't settled...also read online to fluff it without heat in dryer to help that. I'm 5'5 120 pounds and I ordered a size small and it's perfect....I can still wear a sweater or thicker shirt underneath and it's not too tight. Within a thick layer on underneath it doesn't feel too big...fits perfectly. The hood is awesome....has a small zipper and some snaps.i love the dark purple color me got mine in!! Great coat!!

Wanted to love it...

I received this jacket and was very excited until I put it on. There is a definite quality issue with this jacket. Feathers were coming out everywhere. I expected much more from The North Face. Ended up ordering a different one.

So I spend a whole lot of time in this website looking for a good, decent, warm jacket that will cover mid-thigh area. I came across this item and thought it was the best match! My delivery came and I was excited to open the package. I was very disappointed that it didn't seem to be the 550 down feather I was used to with The North Face. It was very flat and not fluffy like my other ones.

Horrible coat AND horrible company!

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

I purchased this coat in September. I own a previous version of this coat, have worn it for several years and LOVED it! I wanted the gray color, so bought it early so it wouldn't sell out. I have now worn the coat a handful of times (maybe 6). It's HORRIBLE! Leaks feathers all over the place. My car is full of feathers, my clothes, they circle the air around me when I'm wearing the jacket. I contacted customer service, and they have refused to help because it's a "used" item purchase more that 30 days ago. I do not recommend this jacket, and I most certainly wouldn't recommend making a purchase of this price from because they do not stand behind their products.

Sorry to hear that the coat didn't work out for you. With down products, there is always some risk that a few feathers might leak but if the coat is well made, it definitely should not leak to this extent. We appreciate your feedback on this coat, as it helps out the rest of the community to know whether or not a product is worth purchasing. As far as our return policy goes, we adopted the 30 day policy because unfortunately we saw a lot of abuse in the lifetime return policy. Sadly in order to remain financially stable as a company we had to adopt the 30 day return policy for used products. We are always happy to assist in helping our customers reach out directly to vendors for warranty issues though. If you have any additional questions or concerns, please feel free to email me at or call or chat in with any one of our gearheads

feathers coming out

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

I got this jacket 2 weeks ago and a ton of feathers are coming out, almost at every cross. I bought it in black so the white feathers are even more noticeable. Backcountry was great, I am hoping my jacket was defective and the replacement would be ok. I love this jacket, but the feather issue is too much to put up with given the price.

Responded on

We bought ours on October 10th. My wife just started wearing it about 2 weeks ago. She's having the same problem, except backcountry won't help us due to the purchase being made over 30 days ago (34 days). They told us we have to go through North Face, and they said it would be 8-12 weeks. Never buying from Backcountry again.

Is the hood detachable?
