Living in Chicago, I own a handful of down jackets to get through our cold winter months. This year I was looking for a black down jacket or parka that is long enough to cover my rear end, perferrably with a belt, NOT with excessive or square quilting, not with wrinkling surfaces, and preferrably NOT the North Face (too uniquitous!).
Although I was looking for a black jacket, I got this one in Graphite Gray and I absolutely LOVE IT!! I tend to like black jackets over any other colors but I actually liked the gray better on me this time (which was a surprise). The gray color is nice, sort of washed black (or soft black) and not silvery gray. It's slightly sheen but not shiny or garbage -bag looking (if you know what I mean!).
I am 5'1" 125 lbs (top heavy, size 4 bottoms and size 6-8 tops) and I ALWAYS wear Medium in TNF (small is too snug around the chest when zipped all the way). This jacket has a figure flattering cut so even though it does not have a belt, it still looks very femimine and not boxy. I also like the way the stiches are done (quilting). They're horizontal but not super straight, making me look a little bit thinner and taller.
Someone has commented how "thin" the jacket was, but I don't think this is very thin, not to today's standards, that is. Sure, it's not thick and bulky but not thin like some of those super light 800-fill down sweaters. I live in Chicago and this jacket is perfect for my daily commute to downtown throughout the winter months in the 0-20 degree temperatures (and the wind!). One of the things I love about this jacket is the length (30") - it covers my entire behind which makes a HUGE difference in the warmth. I'm short and so many long coats I tried on didn't look very good on me. The jacket is sporty enough to wear with jeans and dressy enough to wear to the office. The hood is detachable (hurray!) and the fit is great with the draw cords to tightten when it is actually needed.
So TNF wins again!
this coat is awesome. it's super warm but very light. the hood fits well and the neck keeps wind out. the length is great too.
I LOVE this jacket! It is my first North Face coat and I see others were not impressed. However, for me I like that it isn't too thick. I live in Southern CA, and it's just the right wieght for our winters. The reason I ordered it in the first place is that my sister in WA has the exact same coat and it is so flattering. I love the dark grey, it goes with everything.
I LOVE this jacket! It's perfect for the constant temperature change we have it the Midwest without being too heavy of a jacket!

The Transit Down Jacket has a great fit, not bulky like other down jackets, and a has good length (mid thigh). It's warm enough for the average winter weather, but you'll need to layer when the temperature is frigid.

I've had great success with North Face products and Backcountry.com, but... This NF Transit jacket is a disappointment. Like the first review says, there is very little down in it. A lot of the down has poked through the front. I'm a senior who doesn't go out much, so this jacket has had very little wear. I put it on today and I was COLD--arms, shoulders and body. When I got home and hung it up, I noticed many down cells had very little down in them and the down in the remaining cells had slipped down to the bottom of each cell. The shoulder areas were just thin shell and lining. My jacket just turned two years old. I'm going to approach Backcountry about their "lifetime" guarantee. I'm sure the refund price will be prorated. By the way, my jacket does have a sturdy 2-way zipper. I like this jacket because it covers the hips, is figure flattering and doesn't make me look like I weigh 300 lbs. Too bad the down is so thin.

This is the first ( and last) North Face Jacket I have bought. There is a one way zipper. Who puts a cheap zipper in an expensive jacket? I tried the jacket out in my back yard today. It was 3 degrees with a light breeze. My arms were cold. ( I had a heavy sweater on under the jacket) I think someone forgot to put any down in the sleeves. They are so thin, you can't feel any down in them.
Two pluses for this jacket: very nice length, it comes to mid thigh and it has a hood.
This jacket is not for anyone who is always cold, or for anyone who lives where if actually gets cold in the winter!
I'm sending mine back.
