The North Face built the Men's Zephyrus Pro Insulated Jacket with the innovative ZLoft baffle construction, which eliminates holes created by conventional constructions to keep cold air out and warm air in. PrimaLoft One insulation meets the highest standards of warmth too, so you stay surprisingly warm for such a lightweight jacket. Lightweight shell materials like 20D ripstop and PU-coated Pertex Endurance fabric at the hood, shoulder, and sleeves offers water-resistant protection. And you can compress this Summit Series jacket down into its own pocket, clip it to your harness, and climb on when the weather warms up.

An active fit pulls the Zephyrus Pro close to your body without restricting the mobility you need to pull, crank, and hike up to your alpine ascent. The hem cinches up to prevent it from riding up your body. And the harness-friendly handwarmer pockets are always available to warm your digits even if you have a harness or backpack on.

I cannot rave about this jacket enough. I'm 6'3", 180lb. have a 40" chest and the medium fits perfectly with a little room for layering underneath. Also nice longer parka length. I wear this around New York City and it keeps me warm down into the low 20s with frigid winds. Its incredibly warm for its weight thanks to the Z-baffle construction that North Face utilizes. More key features are the tall snug collar that really keeps the neck warm and the recessed elastic cuffs at the wrist. I cannot emphasize these features enough as they really help keep things warmer. To be honest I actually like the features of this jacket better than those on the Patagonia DAS Parka. The DAS Parka is slightly warmer around the chest but the neck and sleeves on the DAS do not seal out the cold like this jacket. I am not normally a huge North Face fan but was pleasantly surprised when I first tried this jacket on. It has to be one of the warmest 500 gram-range synthetic jackets on the market. Also sheds water very well. Looks sleek and sylish as well in black. You wont be disappointed.

Used during spring skiing down in Australia, as an outer layer only, and with the active fit can see how this will match well under pretty much an shell. Tho active fit, there's no restriction in mobility and well positioned pockets work well with any pack. Dual front zips (my preference on any jacket) enable venting and heat regulation. I have several of Zephyrus jackets, for their size, compressibility (?) and resilience, together with the warmth generated they are a great piece of kit. Fabric withstood several skirmishes with a few snow gums or two, no damage to report. Recommend.

Would this jacket be good for skiing on snowy days?


This is going to be a great jacket and you can definitely use it as a layering piece while skiing.

I'd be using this below a shell since the fabric on this is just a nylon (at the face) with insulation behind it.

It has 60 grams of insulation which is a great amount for skiing. Not so much insulation that you're over heating and not too little that you find yourself being cold.

Shoot me an email if you have any questions!

Unanswered Question

Does it run large?

My husband wears nomally XXL in eauropean cloths.

He's 185cm , 90 kg and rounder belly.

He doesn't like tight fit.

Which size would you recommend me?

Is this jacket zip-in compatible with The...

Is this jacket zip-in compatible with The North Face Mountain Light Insulated Jacket? If not, would you still recommend this jacket be worn as a mid layer with the Mountain Light Insulated Jacket? Thanks!

GusGus, Neither of the jackets are zip-in compatible, but they could still work well as a layering system. If you want a mid layer and shell combo I would say this combined with the non-insulated mountain light shell would be a great combo. If you already have the insulated version and just want something to add a little more cold weather chops to the jacket then this would also work well enough. Stay warm out there!
