Mike P.wrote a review of The North Face 1996 Retro Nuptse Vest - Men's on September 16, 2018
Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: True to size
The exterior appearance is the same as the iconic version from the late 90’s, however the fill level of down is not the same. I would estimate each compartment has roughly 70% of the down fill that the originals did. As someone that has an original one still I can confirm side by side the lack of down in each compartment is glaring. I was very excited to purchase this but have been disappointed by the choice northface made to use less down to save money. Not the same as it used to be, but still looks great.
