Synthetic that steals the best properties of down.

Snowshoe through the Rockies this winter in lightweight, toasty comfort with The North Face Men's ThermoBall Full-Zip Insulated Jacket. PrimaLoft ThermoBall insulation mimics the look and feel of down, trapping warmth to keep you cozy, even in extreme temperatures. It even compresses like down, so you can stow it in a pocket and take it with you wherever you go. And because it's synthetic, the ThermoBall stays warm, even when you get wet during backcountry ski session through powder.

The ThermoBall features a nylon shell that's durable enough to be worn on its own and slides easily under other layers. Its cuffs have an elastic binding to keep your sleeve from riding up your arms, while the adjustable hem tightens to prevent drafts. Pockets keep your hands warm when you reach the lookout point, and can be zipped closed to keep essentials secure on the return trip back to the car.

  • An insulated jacket for versatile outdoor protection
  • Durable, water-resistant shell for long-lasting use
  • ThermoBall insulation mimics down for intense heat, even when wet
  • Stand up collar offers extra protection
  • Adjustable hem and elastic cuffs seal out drafts
  • Zippered pockets keep essentials secure

Love this down jacket

    Versatile jacket is good from 30 degrees to 60 degrees in our Midwest fall and spring seasons - when you never know what you’re going to get. Athletic fit, but ok for layering.

    Is this jacket machine washable?

    Yes. I wash mine all the time with warm water, under a gentle cycle. The DWR finish will probably come off-unless you use a specialty cleaner like Nikwax. I use the little detergent balls and toss this in with some microfiber towels to aide in re-fluffing this jacket during the dry cycle. Oh, and you can dry it with low heat. Its loft bounces back to normal much easier than any down jacket I've ever owned.

    what temperatures does this jacket handle? (rough guess is fine) and is it good for an outer jacket for skiing in relatively dry ski conditions? (ie not snowing or raining)

    I run a hair cold, but heat up fast. I'm comfortable sitting still wearing just this and a cotton t shirt in roughly 40-50 degree weather. If I'm setting up camp/unpacking or arranging pads/brushing holds/putting shoes on, I have to unzip it or take it off. With a R1 fleece underneath I'm solid down to the 30's just chilling as well.

    I don't have an answer for your second question :(

    Erick - I have used this jacket snowshoeing in light dry snow and it was perfect. I was a lot more wet on the inside from sweat than on the outside from any precipitation. Even at the end of the day when there was a fair amount of moisture in the jacket, it still kept me plenty warm.

    Unanswered Question

    Hi! I'm 6'3" and 185 pounds. I'm muscular, but nothing crazy and I've got a short upperbody compared to my long legs. I don't like baggy jackets but I would like to fit a college sweater under the jacket without it looking way too tight. I must be able to move in it and on a side note I have really long arms aswell. What would be my best fit?

    Hi I am a 5`9`` height and 176 lbs rather muscular, but not that much, should I get a small? I dont like baggy stuff

    I actually tried these on in a store and was surprised to see how well a small fit on me. (5'10" 195lbs.--athletic) If you are going to use this as a midlayer underneath and not anything much underneath you may want the small. My only advice is if your waist is above 34" definitely size up. 32 waist is good with small.

    Hi, Im 6'3" and 160lbs. What would be my the best fit for me? I think a medium looking at the size and fit.

    Hey James,

    At your height and weight, I'd avoid getting a Thermoball since the fit won't be on par for your build.

    Shoot me an email anytime you have questions!

    A medium good for me, being 5'8" 155? Buying as a second layer on top of base, under shell for snowboarding. Also can anyone give a size reference when packed, will be tossing in my pack for winter hikes.

    A medium is probably a good size for you, especially as a second layer. Slightly smaller than a nalgene bottle when packed into its pocket. However, you can still compress it a lot more; so if you need it to occupy an even smaller space, you can make that happen.


    I'm looking at a middle layer for layering. I'm 6' tall and weigh about 235. Just wondering if this would layer well under my Columbia rain jacket.


    How's the breathability on this jacket (say as compared to fleece or down)? Looking at it as a midlayer for skiing.

    Best Answer

    Not bad. It's not waterproof, so that allows your body to breath better than other materials. For skiing you would be just fine. High-exertion activities will make you sweat a bit more--especially in warmer temps. But, if you get too warm, you can take it off and stuff it (literally) in your pack with no worries.

    Is this Jacket the one included with the Men's TNF Thermoball Triclimate Insulated Jacket ?

    I am looking for a mid-layer. I live in Edmonton, Canada, and it gets pretty cold here. I want the jacket for daily use, skiing, and hiking. I current have my arcteryx alpha LT (size large)as a shell. Do you think this would work as a mid-layer? If not can you recommend another jacket?

    Hey Joe

    Whether or not this jacket will meet your needs really depends on what you plan on using it for. I don't think there is such thing as a one size fits all / perfect for every condition jacket. That being said, I was impressed by how warm the thermoball is for as light as the jacket is. This isn't going to be a severe weather jacket. If you're wanting something to insulate on the coldest days, I would look for something else - I recommend looking at the Arcteryx Cerium or Thorium (again, depending on needs).

    Hi guys, I know there are a lot of new synthetics going onto the market these days, and I was wondering which one had the highest warmth to weight ratio? The TNF Thermoball here, (supposedly the same as 600-fill down), the Mountain Hardwear Thermal Q. Elite or good old Primaloft One?

    Curious to know the answer,


    Best Answer

    Hey Lance,

    I don't know how helpful this is to you since I haven't tried Thermal Q Elite, and I'm still a fan of Primaloft One, but as far as synthetics go, I was actually impressed with the warmth of the TNF Thermoball. I used it as one of my go to jackets for cold mornings in Northern Utah last year. It seemed to be very packable and lightweight as well. I don't know that you can go wrong with a new piece that uses any of these three insulators so I'd definitely look at the other features on the jackets and let that help you decide as well. Our gearheads would be happy to go through some options with you if you give them a call or initiate a live chat.

    I think the Thermoball has great functionality in wet environments or when it might get soaked. Gear Junkie did a review and literally dropped it in a creek then wore it on a hike and was fine. If you can keep it completely dry the Thermal Q is going to be warmer. Its warmer because it’s designed to mimic the structure of goose down – rigid stems that form a matrix of gaps and softer fibers to fill those gaps. The result is a warmer synthetic whose structure gives it better compression rebound.
