MJGeewrote a review of The North Face Summit L3 Down Midlayer Jacket - Women's on December 9, 2016
Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
I've been looking to replace my old down hooded TNF jacket that is 6+ years old and starting show some wear. Most of the outdoor brand names had several similar versions to explore and I finally landed on this one. It's by far the warmest in it's class - lightweight, yet durable and weather proof. I have a Thermoball vest & a Nano jacket, but nothing compares to down in the bitter cold. This jacket has nice loft and still provides a great feminine silhouette. It also has tons of pockets, a decent internal storm flap, and a soft collar lining that keeps my chin warm and protected when fully zipped. The the hood suits me perfectly - fits over a knit hat or beanie nicely when necessary. Also stowable for travel ease. Fits true to size, although since I'm on the short side, the sleeves were a bit long (my taller friends would appreciate that!) but a single baffle roll at the cuff - which isn't even noticeable during wear - did the trick! I got the green/black ombre and it is gorgeous. I ordered this during a great sale on Backcountry which made my purchase even better!
