Literally wrap yourself from head to knees in this quilted down jacket.
Short and sporty are great words to describe your new coif, but the last words you want to hear when describing a winter jacket. The North Face Women's Triple C Down Jacket is the yin to your haircut's yang: long and luxurious. A full 47 inches of water resistance and 700-fill goose down keeps your head, shoulders, and knees (sorry, toes) swaddled in protective warmth throughout the worst of winter.
Sleek and silky, the nylon taffeta face fabric rebuffs nicks and tears from sticks and stones you encounter while ambling down Michigan Avenue. The DWR treatment, both on the face fabric and lining, helps water bead up on surfaces rather than flatten and be absorbed by the fabric. Accumulating snow or a severe squirt from your toddler's juice box shouldn't penetrate the fabric, but you'll want to seek shelter when a light dusting turns into a blizzard.
Down insulation offers a lot of warmth without a lot of weight, so don't be taken aback when the Triple C starts floating out of the box. The 700-fill down is a combination of goose feathers and clusters whose fibers criss-cross, forming an intricate lattice structure. A lattice is not solid, and has air pockets interspersed within the solid structures. When it comes to down insulation, these air pockets act like a nightclub bouncer, keeping cold air out and warm air in. Unlike your favorite bouncer who doesn't flinch when drinks are flung in his face, down doesn't tolerate wetness and won't protect you from an avalanche of coldness if you're the target for the flying gin & tonic. An insulated hood and variegated quilting throughout the length of the jacket up the warmth factor, and zippered hand pockets keep your keys safe, even in the midst of a vicious snowball fight.

Living in the Boston area it gets pretty cold. Not any more!
The wind, rain and snow are no match for this coat.
I love it and am so glad I ordered an extra large as it runs small.

I purchase North Face products for my children and grandchildren and they all think it is great. I decided to give it a try to replace a long black down coat I have had for a while. I liked the style, but it was not warm. The wind seemed to go right through it. I was also disappointed in the hood which I thought was way too small to be useful. Sorry to have to return it.
What are the measurements for size...
What are the measurements for size medium
The model specs are listed in the size chart if you want to take a look at them. If you are looking for material specs however we are currently sold out of size Medium and would not be able to get any measurement.
I apologize if that is any inconvenience.
Missing the old version and NF quality

This jacket is such a disappointment. I had the previous version, which was great style, but had patches of no down in them, so the jacket could not possibly be graded as 700. I exchanged it hoping that was just one, but the other arrived with the same problem. As I liked the style a lot, I kept it, but after a year of using it, my zipper got jammed. I called North Face in December of 2013 to ask about a possible repair of the zipper, they told me it will take 5-6 weeks. Another disappointment from North Face. I unfortunately don't have many winter jackets to afford 6 weeks without it. So, I ended up returning the jacket and buying this new version. Not only they went cheap with material, again patches of no down at all, no zipper flap, no fleece lined pockets and finally no zipper that starts at a reachable point, not the one that goes all the way down, where you have to bend to zip with no leg space as the previous one. Also, the new version runs smaller and shorter. The old version fit taller women who have hard time finding a jacket with sleeves that fit. North Face, what is going on? You are ruining your reputation!

What is the temperature rating for this coat?
Jackets don't generally get temperature ratings because it depends on how warm you are in general, what you're doing, whether you're layering, etc. But I'd say that with normal street clothes underneath, just walking around town, this would probably keep you warm down to around freezing temps without additional layers underneath.

This product should be recalled to replace defective zipper.
It is unbelievable that this brand would install such a terrible zipper.
Thanks for your question. We haven't heard anything about the zipper on The North Face Triple C Down Jacket being defective. However, if you ordered a defective model from us we would of course be happy to help you find a better option. Please chat or call in to talk to our customer service Gearheads and we would be very interested to learn about any issues you have experienced.
I have the same problem with the zipper! And the fabric always gets caught as I try to zip it up! I like the coat, but I might return it due to the zipper problem.
Did they quit making this jacket as long...
Did they quit making this jacket as long as they use to? If so that's too bad! I bought one from you for my wife several years ago and it's like 52" to the neck from the bottom and she loves it! Keeps her Very Warm for our Winter walks in Wyoming which is Cold as Hell! Terrific Fit, Very stylish...
That 47" measurement that is called out in the tech specs is what they call a Center Back Length and is not the full material length of the Jacket. The Center Back Length only measures from the C7 vertebrae, or that bump at the base of the neck in between the shoulder, down to the bottom of the jacket. The Center Back Length is just a tailors measurement so that we can get an idea how the garment will fall on the average individual. Take into consideration the rest of the material above the shoulders and this should measure the same as your wife's older jacket.
- Fit: Runs large
I am 5.9 and usually a size 4-6. The small was definitely too large. Also didn't like the merlot color. Will try the grey in XS. Seems like a nice light but warm coat. I wish it had snaps in addition to the zipper.

I was so looking forward to getting this as I had the previous version in cream and the slanted strips made it look good but sadly it wasn't as long , no press studs . just very disappointed
The zip went to the end which was a pain too. I was wanted to want this. back it goes :(
Hi, you would write down the exact...
Hi, you would write down the exact measurements M size? Looking, sleeve length, chest, hips, waist length jackets. thank you
The jacket's length is 48", sleeve length is 35" (from center back), pit to pit should be about 19", and the waist/hip will be accurate per the size chart.
Is this going to keep my daughter warm in...
Is this going to keep my daughter warm in Fairbanks? I'm comparing it to the Canada Goose Mystique. That jacket has a much tougher exterior, but it seems the insulating properties may be similar. Anyone know the fill weight? Thanks!
I can't find the fill weight specs anywhere...maybe one of the Backcountry employees can find it. But anyhow, here's the reviews from the TNF site. It seems like the reviewers from the lower 48 like it, but everyone from the higher latitudes hate it. Even though warmth is really specific to the individual, most are saying that it's leaving them cold at around freezing. That won't work, I'm sure. I'll take a Canada Goose piece any day.
Read for yourself and decide what you think:
Hope this helps you out.
Phil is pretty good at this kind of stuff but its no surprise that he wasn't able to get that info about the fill weight. That information is "proprietary info" and The North Face will not give that spec, believe me I have tried to get it. The only way we are getting that fill weight is by gutting a jacket and measuring its contents on a scale.
