    Nice quality

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Small

    Fits me perfectly, keeps me warm and is cute. I am fairly thin so it does run small because even the small was just barely a perfect fit! I like how it has a cinched waste.

    Great down coat!

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: small

    I got this with my daughter's north face Elisa down from Backcountry. This coat is really warm. I love it! I usually wear size 0 or 2 and small size fits perfectly.

    A must have for the winter!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: S

    I live in NJ and it gets as low as 20 F here. This is the best coat in this price range for using in a city, for example if you occasionally walk and take public transportation or use your car otherwise. I don't think this would be good for hiking as I do not think it really breathes. It definitely keeps you warm. I didn't even need to wear layers to keep myself warm. But it might make you sweaty if you are active. I sometimes walk for 40-50 minutes with this in the city sideways and sometimes I feel too hot in it. But I love this, you can just wear a dress or a thin layer and it will still keep you warm. Definitely wind-breaking and warm and soft. It might be bulky to carry around so keep that in mind. I wear XS in tops and bottoms but I bought S in this coat and it fits perfectly. I really think that this was the best winter coat to buy for this price as I searched for this for a month. I can say that I made the right decision!

    Beautiful Coat, Weird Fit

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Medium

    I'm usually in between a small and medium, but decided to size up for layering or thick sweaters. Similar to other reviews, there was nothing else going to fit in that coat! I'm relatively flat chested (34B for reference) and it still barely zipped and the arms were too short, yet the waist was baggy and undefined.
    I got the green color which was dark and true to the photos. Very pretty coat and seemed warm in the house. Sadly returning this one.

    Quality Decline

    • Fit: True to size

    This is my 3rd TNF Arctic parka. My first (and warmest) model was purchased in 2009, my second in 2014. I purchased the latest model last week after someone stole my second TNF from the coat rack on NYE 2017. This latest version?! What a disappointment. The zipper is utter garbage, the fur collar looks cheap and sparse and the chest pockets are gone. Seriously, even the hanging loop has gone down in quality. Forget about warmth too. The arms don't have enough fill and the wind whips right through the coat. You might get some use out of this on a Carribean cruise but don't plan on much else.

    Nice parka

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Small

    This is a nice parka and it fits well. But my mum, who has a broader shoulder says it does not fit her well and runs a little small. I recommend those who have broad shoulders to size up.

    Price =quality of materials

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Large

    I think North Face has gone downhill in the last few years, and this coat is evidence of that. Plastic zipper. Boxy, Unflattering fit for a woman. No unique details. Just mega plain. I wanted to like this coat because of the price but when the Sorel Joan of Arctic coat showed up, there is absolutely no comparison. Granted, the price tag on that coat is much higher but the quality is there and the fit is flattering and the attention to detail is evident. I wish North Face would put some better design into their merchandise...everything is starting to look eerily similar to Patagonia, Land's End, Eddie Bauer, and all those other blasé brands that probably share the same foreign factories. Such a bummer to see the brand in decline.

    Too many flaws for the money

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Small

    I ordered this jacket for a trip to Iceland, but returned it almost immediately. I liked the faux fur on the hood, but once you remove it, the hood is too short to cover your face. Completely pointless if there's a downpour and you don't want the fur to get wet. The jacket also zips too tight to your chin when it's zipped all the way up. When it's cold I usually tuck my chin behind that part of the collar, but there isn't enough room. It seems like a warm coat, but those flaws are too important for me to waste this much money.

    Bought as a gift

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: Runs small

    I bought this as a late Christmas/ early birthday present for my mom who lives in Western Michigan. She lives a couple blocks from Lake Michigan and gets the wonderful lake wind effect. She needed a jacket that could stand up to that kind of weather. So far she absolutely loves it. It keeps her warm and blocks the wind very well.

    Versatile and Functional

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Small

    I bought this jacket for a trip to NYC in December, and it kept me very warm while walking around outside, even with minimal layers underneath. I now wear it all the time back home in LA, just as a rain coat when the temperatures are in the 50s and it's perfect for that too! I have wide hips, and there is just enough room for them in the size small, which fit me everywhere else. My only complaints are that the hood is not very deep, so if you have your hair up, it's difficult to put the hood over it, and the zipper is a huge pain about 75% of the time. You have to align it perfectly to get it to work. But overall, I'm very happy and would buy it again!

    The North Face Arctic Down Parka - Women's

    • Size Bought: Small

    I am 5-3 -115/average bust. I initially purchased the XS but found it too snug so exchanged it for the Small size. I love this coat-super warm!!! The coat does run snug even in the small but it is not too bulky and overwhelming like so many other heavyweight coats. When you are looking for this amount of warmth, you can not expects a sleek design. I like that there is a banded waist to give a little shape. I usually buy petite for the length/arms. This inside cuffs in the sleeves add to the warmth, and help keep the arm length in check. No need to tuck in or cuff. Removed the fur trim-not for me. Saw that other review mention crinkly sound- not an issue with mine. I love that this coat does NOT have those big square front pockets many others do-adds to overall bulkiness. The pockets are plenty deep enough. Very happy!!!

    XS is perfect for petite women

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: XS

    As I am 5 ft 0 in and weigh 110lb, it is very difficult to find coats that fit me appropriately. This coat fits PERFECTLY; nice and snug. I played in the snow in Lake Tahoe and I was completely warm and dry! Love this coat.

    Good Quality

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: medium

    Although this jacket seemed to be made very well, it appeared very boxy when I put it on and the faux fur hood did not seem to sit right. I ordered a medium and think that a small may have been a better option for a more form fitting style, but am concerned that a smaller size might not fit my shoulders as well. It is super warm and although I did not wear it outside, I imagine it would be great for those extra chilly days.

    Disappointed

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Small

    I thought I would love this coat and my search would be over! Waterproof and warm all in one piece of clothing? Perfect, right?
    I tried a medium and XS in a local store and ordered the small from Backcountry. However it did not look or feel good on me. The faux fur has an A shape instead of rounding around the face. Also, a deal-breaker for me, when the fur is removed, there are three elastic cord loops, on that sticks straight up, and one at each side of the hood.
    The fit looks bad on me--the shoulders are not defined, the arms are too puffy for the body, and the body bulky instead of flattering.
    The material is crinkly with movement. The fill does not seem like it would hold up in below freezing temps, especially for standing in one place for long times.
    I'd only recommend this to someone who doesn't mind the fur looking the way it looks and who wants a more affordable truly waterproof winter coat (not just a chemical spray water repellant).

    Disappointed

    Warm!!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: XL

    I love this coat!! I originally ordered a large, my usual size, but it was too small in the chest area. I am a 38dd, but usually can wear a large in most things. I think it runs small in the chest, but fit perfectly everywhere else. The return process is very easy and quickly received the XL. I bought the black, it has nice deep, zippered front slash pockets. Sleeves have a knit inner cuff, great for keeping cold air and snow out. Hood is removable, nice faux fur trim and the hood is not so large it falls over your eyes. The only thing I'd change is I wish it were a tad longer and went to my knees. This hits above the knee but is a good length. The length is a small issue.

    Warm Coat

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium

    I'm 5 '3 130 pear shaped. Medium fit me perfect. (I ordered the small and it was a bit snub in the hips. ) The coast is really warm and slimming. The zipper is hard to work sometimes. The only down side is there are no pockets on the inside and the two outside pockets are not insulated. I did not give it 5 stars because of the pockets.

    Unanswered Question

    I want to insert a specific pregnancy extender into whichever jacket I buy, and I need to know some info about the zipper: What is the length of the zipper from top to bottom? And does it say YKK on it somewhere?

    Vaporous Grey looks like an ivory color in the picture? Please advise. Thank you.

    I just purchased this jacket and received it yesterday. I do not think it comes with the hidden stretch mittens integrated into cuffs. Is that an error in the description?

    Having a tough time with which color to order....black or the graphite gray. The gray (on other websites, like Zappos) looks a lot lighter than on Backcountry. Don't want it too be too light. Otherwise will order black. Also noticed the Brooklyn Parka is similar is that just an older version of this coat?

    Best Answer

    Not sure if you ordered yet, but the gray for this season is almost like a linen textured look vs. a solid gray. Not light in color, but different, just in case that helps in your decision making. =) I got the green, after trying to decide between that and gray.

    What is your return policy if it does not fit?

    Hello Teresa!

    Just as long as something is brand new with tags and packaging, you may return at any time for a refund. If used, there is a 30 day period to return for a store credit. Feel free to give us a call or chat in to speak with a gearhead if you have any more questions or concerns!

    Unanswered Question

    What is the warmest jacket you have? Looking for something at least to the thighs, longer is better. I want it windproof. I know I should be thinking about the weight of the down and the baffling size. Please help.

    Im 5'6 and the description says this coat is knee length. Is there a chance this coat could fall above my knees?

    I am looking to order this jacket in black for my girlfriend. She would prefer a brown or more natural color for the fur trim, and I've read a review below that says the black color comes with a brown trim. The photo suggests black on black. Before ordering, I would like to confirm whether I can get a black jacket with the natural/brown faux fur. Thanks!

    Hey Bruce,



    Unfortunately we are sold out the black Arctic Down Parka that comes with the lighter colored fur and we will not be getting more from The North Face since they were last year's model. I would recommend checking out The North Face Brooklyn Down Jacket (Item # TNF02GK) and The North Face Nitchie Insulated Down Parka (Item # TNF01LD) since both come in Black with a lighter fur hood. Feel free to contact me directly with any more questions on The North Face Jackets or if you are interested in setting up an order.

    Do you deliver to uk? If so what are the delivery charges? Thanks

    Hey Maja,



    Unfortunately, we cannot ship The North Face outside of the US. Provided below is the list of brands that we are not allowed to ship outside of the US.

    Where can I get the belt that is on the picture?

    If you're talking about the one in the Urban Navy/Urban Navy picture, it looks like that is actually an incorrect image. The pockets are different on that jacket and there should not be a belt. Thank you for pointing that out! I'll pass that tip along to have that image corrected.

    Hi, I'm looking to get an M for this - will you be getting additional colors soon? I'm 5'4 and prefer a coat that ends mid-thigh to just above my knees - will the M be too long?

    Will there be any other sizes or colors available in this coat? Looking for a medium or large.
