Why We Like The 1996 Retro Nuptse Vest

Inspired by The North Face's 1996 Nuptse, the 1996 Retro Nuptse Vest brings throwback style to our look and is versatile enough for our adventures around the city or on the trail. Its lofty goose down insulation traps your body heat for reliable warmth on cold winter days, and the durable face fabric is water-resistant to keep you dry if flakes start to fall. The hood protects your face from the wind, but can be easily stowed into the collar when the weather is fair, while an adjustable hem cinch blocks chilly air from entering your layers.

I did buy it again!

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I used to have a similar one in '96 in HS. Decided to get this again when it came out and I'm brought back to my teenage years. Super warm so I recommend this for the fall or winter.

Good looking but it's not goose dawn.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] It would be too wide unless you wear something thick inside. I wish it's slim fit with real dawn (not recycled).

Had to reup on this vest after my OG finally died.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Absolutely love this vest! Have had it in my arsenal since my freshman year in college and worn it in all conditions throughout living in Michigan, Portland, Chicago and LA. I was first gifted this vest in 2005 and it lasted me nearly 20 years (with some patching here and there). Finally had to give in and buy a new one which I look forward to wearing for another 20. This is a timeless, versatile piece that will help keep you warm indoors or out any time of year.

Definitely recommend

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I think that the quality this vest comes in is perfect. The way it sits on your upper body yet still keeping you warm when you need it to always amazes me how they manage to make these.

Good vest

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The first one was marked a large but it was an xl The second one arrived and it was the correct size I wish there was a way to check the amount of down fill is in the vest because it doesn't seem to be all that puffy I have bought a nuptse vest at least 15 years ago and that one is a lot more puffier than the last few that I have purchased from North Face
