Trying to buy a down or synthetic down jacket from the north face or ANY of the other similar brands is getting ridiculous. There are so many fits and cuts and different fills it becomes overwhelming to choose.
I bought this particular jacket while looking for a solid mid-weight down jacket with a hood, and got scared off by the other options, thermoball, nano poof, stretch versions et al from what people said about their fitment. I was not worried about waterproofness.
I am (barely) 5'8" and usually around 185 lbs, wrestler build, with a 41-42 inch chest. I typically have a very hard time deciding between a medium with tight shoulders, and a large with a ridiculous waist line or length of sleeves.
"Short", fit, men rejoice: the medium in this jacket fits amazing. Plenty of room for my chest, shoulders and biceps; great athletic cut that fits my body without air coming in. It's sized perfect for me.
I did feel somewhat let down by this jacket. I did think it was going to be a little bit thicker, and a little nicer feeling for a $250 jacket that is not even water-proof. That's why it' s getting 4 stars. That being said, it does seem very warm despite it's apparent lack of thickness. Unfortunately as soon as I got it, the weather in upstate new york went back into the 50s, so I haven't had much reason to wear it.
Would recommend if you can get it on sale. I would probably look elsewhere at retail price.
