Winter? What winter?
Winter doesn't have to be that cold, miserable season that everybody thinks it is. The bitter chill of Jack Frost won't be an issue if you can't feel it. The North Face Women's Nuptse Ridge Hooded Down Parka is going to make you forget cold even exists. You might not want to use this if you're hiking in the Khumbu region of the Himalayas, but with 700-fill down insulation and a big puffy hood you're all set for snowshoeing in the aspens outside your subdivision or wearing it to town. Nestle into the protective puffy collar as you enjoy a sled-ride through the city, snug cuffs keeping out the chilly breeze, and cinch down the hem for unmatched coziness. Even if unexpected snow flurries spring up, the DWR finish will complete the illusion that it's not actually winter.

I have owned this jacket for a few months now and am very pleased with it. I was looking for a jacket that would handle cold ND winters. I didn't own it in the brutal cold months of January and February but we have had very cold weather ever since and it has kept me very comfortable. I bought a size larger than I normally wear because I wanted to be able to wear it with layers. But, so far, I have been warm even with just a t-shirt in temps as low as single digits. I have even gotten a bit too warm when I have worn it on walks.
I have gotten a lot of compliments while wearing it. It is big on me since I bought a size larger than I should have but it is still cute. I love the deep side pockets. You can fit a lot of stuff in it and the zippers on them are awesome. The hood is a bit small but i just cinch it up and it keeps my head warm.
If you are looking for a jacket that is cute and warm, I would highly recommend this jacket. I haven't washed it yet. So, I'm hoping it will hold up.
