    The warmth of down, minus the Achilles' heel.

    The North Face Men's ThermoBall Hooded Insulated Jacket has the warmth of a 600-fill down jacket coupled with the wet-weather performance of synthetic insulation. Primaloft Thermoball synthetic insulation looks and acts like the round clusters that make up down insulation, retaining body heat so you stay warm in a lightweight and lofty jacket. It also compresses like down so you can stow it in its own pocket and pack it without sacrificing much space. The ThermoBall features a durable nylon shell that makes layering easy. Elasticized bindings around the cuffs and hood help retain body heat, and a hem cinch-cord tightens so warmth is retained while you ski, climb, hike, and play all over the mountains.

    • Dependable insulation for the trail, crag, or slopes
    • Primaloft Thermoball insulation is comparable to down in warmth
    • Water-resistant fill retains insulating properties when wet
    • Durable ripstop fabric with DWR resists wear and moisture
    • Drawcord hem and adjustable hood can be drawn tight to trap heat
    • Compressible design allows jacket to pack down small
    • Active fit layers well under shells and looks good on its own
    • Item #TNF00V2

    I LOVE the jacket. I have a size Large Marmot puffy without a hood, it's pretty bulky. I was looking for a puffy to layer with one of my summit jackets that had a hood, and the North Face Thermoball fits perfectly. I'm also planning to use this for some climbing expeditions. I haven't had any chance to really test it out in cold weather, but It's extremely fashionable and the small size fits great. 5'9" 155lbs

    Bottom of the Barrel Construction

    Attached are a few photos of how poorly constructed the jacket is. The Zipper wasn't like that before I sent it in for warranty to North Face. So, they actually sent it back worse for wear with the blown seams still jacked up and the zipper now fraying.



    This is the last North Face product I'll ever buy.

    Nice Quality Jacket but ...

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

    Since this jacket started appearing on retail stores just before winter sets in, I thought I'd purchase one with the expectation that this would keep me warm in the great outdoors. While it may be good for its recommended use i.e. hiking, climbing, skiing, it cannot keep me warm during winter days when I take the dog outside. Not ideal for stop and go activity such as standing still outside waiting for the dog to finish sniffing or anything below 35 above esp when considering the wind factor. As a jacket I would classify it as a car coat, late fall/early spring jacket. The stitching, the zipper, pocket and hood design, pocket locations and pocket depth, lightweight are nice touches.

    Runs large

    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: Medium

    I really liked the construction and the feel of the jacket but it was just too big. I lift weights routinely but am not excessively muscular but medium sized shirts and jackets are almost always tight around my back and shoulders. This jacket was way too big in those areas, as well as the biceps too.

    Impressed by the north face

      Really love this jacket. I don't have many north face items but I am really impressed. It is lightweight but also very warm. I wear this snowboarding, snow biking, hiking or just out and about. I bought the red color and really like it. I have had a problem in the past with north face items fitting me too wide but didn't have that issue with this jacket.

      great jacket!!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: Runs large

      i'm happy with my purchase. this is a great jacket, super lightweight but warm. it was large than i was expecting, so i advise taking a smaller size.

      Quality products!

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

      Just as always TNF makes amazing/quality products. Simple jacket that's easy to stuff quickly into it's own pocket for storage or a small backpack compressed. I've been in moderately cold areas nothing lower than 55F and it's kept me comfortably warm for how thin and compact it is. As far as size I think they've got it right for my body type; slim fit. I've got several thermoball jackets and plan on buying more as new colors come out!!

      Luv it but still missing basic features

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: Runs large
      • Size Bought: Large

      Luv this jacket in Gingerbread Brown color. Very unique color. It has that right mix of brown-orange Fall color that I've been looking all these years; maybe burnt sienna on the Crayola box if I'll recall it correctly. I hope they make more jackets in this color as I get a lot of compliments and it is very hard to find. It has two large zipped pockets. With only a waffle henley or an office long sleeve shirt and as long that it's not windy, it keeps me decently warm when the NYC temps is in the 40s (wet or dry weather). It is also not bulky to wear and appears to hold up on almost daily city use.

      My gripes with North Face jackets is that they should make single Napoleon pocket and two-way zip standard on all jackets.

      As for the fit vs my body type, due to being a regular in the weight room over the years, I am in that category where not only am I transitioning from a medium to a large, the large size fits me all over well except for the length of the jacket. Lately, I tend to have fitting issues in the upper-arm, armpit diameter, shoulder, chest/lats areas. Had I picked size medium, I worry that I might outgrow it by next year like my last year's Thermoball Remix jackets. But with the size large, the extra material at the torso region tends to bunch up when I sit.

      Great jacket!

      Oh what a jacket! I had my medium exchanged because it ran too large, but the small fits perfectly! Haven't taken it out outdoors, but I can't stop wearing this magic gem daily with a light baselayer underneath. So light and warm! Magical! Plus I got it on sale which made it a steal. Thanks Backcountry!

      I've found that this guy keeps me almost as warm as my 800 fill down jackets, but doesn't seem to get nearly as stuffy. The other perk of this jacket, being that it is synthetic, is that doesn't turn into a big pile of stinky garbage when it gets a little wet. I just gave one to my Dad for Xmas and he won't stop singing it's praises.

      Perfect Jacket for going in and out

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

      I get hot very easily, so when I would go to work or the store in the winter I would always leave my jacket at home. 1 minute of suffering is better than 15, right? Well, this jacket fixed all my problems. it is definitely warm enough for short walks or for physical activities in below freezing weather, but also seems to breathe well enough that I can leave it on but unzipped inside for 15-30 minutes without breaking a sweat.

      • Size Bought: medium

      I bought this for my 14 year old son. Its cute and is very warm. Unfortunately it was way too big. The arms are bigger than expected. My husband tried it on, he is 5'10 with normal build and broad shoulders. It fit him pretty good with plenty of room but it wasn't his style so I returned it.

      Just buy it!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: Runs large
      • Size Bought: Small

      Bought this a little over a month ago and have used it almost every day since I got it. Very light and very warm and is sized big enough to layer underneath. I usually wear a light fleece under it and it is definitely warmer than any other jacket I have. I love that it has a hood which is very warm. The jacket seems to heat up almost instantly when wearing a just a t-shirt under it. Highly recommend it. Also it stows and compresses down into the front pocket which is helpful when traveling. I debated on purchasing a medium, glad I didn't because the body of the jacket is a little wider but the arms are perfectly fitted. My only complaint is that the stitching around the right cuff has started to come out.

      Gets The Job Done

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

      This is a nice "puffy" for the price but TNF could have done better.
      The good:
      This is a warm jacket, it insulates well, but does breathe some since it is so thin. In 20-40 degree F and you'll need something more than a tee shirt on under it. 40-55 degrees F and you can simply just wear it and a tee. It is extremely lightweight, the pockets are nice and big and seems to do just fine in light rain. It does wash well (I hand wash and air dry). I use it while climbing and hiking and haven't had any tears in the fabric. The jacket allows the user to keep mobility without sacrificing comfort .
      The bad:
      It is sized quite awkwardly, the biceps are very large in proportion to the rest of the jacket and the overall length is about an inch shorter than I would like. However the larger biceps allow for multiple under layers to be warn and not cause issues. The hood is a little small for anyone with a normal sized head but wearing a hat does fix the issue, as the hat will hold the hood in place.
      Conclusion:
      Realistically I didn't buy this jacket to wear on a runway and win top model, I bought it to keep me warm and dry, at a reasonable price while maintaining comfort and mobility.

      Good for fall weather

      This would be great during the fall or a layer under a shell. Anything below 37 you'll feel with just this jacket.

      I have 46" chest.. What size should I get? Large or xl

      Unanswered Question

      I want to buy this jacket for my husband for Christmas, but i have already returned 3 jackets to Columbia as their sizes run very large. So here I am trying North Face. My husband is 6 ft tall and 154 lb. He has athletic slim figure, but always buys medium for all his clothing. I read conflicting reviews here...some say it runs large, some say true to size. Should I buy small or medium of The North Face ThermoBall Hooded Insulated Jacket for him?

      Hi. I'm 6ft 2in and 200 lbs. I was thinking a large for me. What do you think? I have long arm too. Thanks.

      Paul

      I'm buying the ThemoBall as a gift for my college-aged son. He is 6 ft. and 175 pounds but he has a really long back. Should I get the medium or the large? He hates when coats "ride up"...

      If I am 6 ft 2 255 lbs should I get a xl or xxl

      I am 5''9' 140 lb, usually I were M, what size should i choose for this jacket

      How does this jacket hold up in rainfall and wind? I'm looking at the Mountain Hardwear Quasar for $300 but would love to save the money if the ThermoBall would be as good.

      Joshua,



      I absolutely love this jacket. Unfortunately it isn't water proof. However because of the type of insulation they use (Primaloft) It will keep you warm in wet conditions, and will hold up after those wears in wet conditions.



      As for being wind proof: It is completely windproof . It also offers elastic inside the sleeve to prevent wind from creeping up your sleeve into the main cavity of the jacket.



      Let us know if you have any additional questions!

      Unanswered Question

      Does anyone know how the stitching of this jacket holds up compared to the stitching of the Patagonia Nano-puff? I've lost stitching pretty easily and often with the Nano-puff.

      Is this jacket warm enough by itself for everyday wear in Michigan winter?The temperatures range here from 40F to -10F with the average being around 20 F.

      I'd like to find a winter jacket that's good for everyday wear (to classes, run errands, etc) in Michigan. If you have any other recommendations, please let me know. My budget is under $200

      Best Answer

      Probably not. I think you'll find that the wind cuts through this pretty quick and you'll lose a lot of heat through convection. Better to go with something with a little sturdier shell.



      This piece is more intended to go under a shell... or as an outer layer on dry days without wind.

      Hey Ish, So you're going to want something with a lot of insulation. I'd suggest going with something like a "belay jacket" made to be super warm and go over anything you're wearing. Also, down will keep you warmer than synthetic. A good 650 down jacket should be in your price range.

      Good luck, I hear its cold out there..
