Thermoball Triclimate Insulated Jacket
Built with a robust, waterproof outer layer and a removable, Thermoball insulated inner layer, The North Face’s Thermoball Triclimate Jacket keeps you warm from summer to winter, then back to summer again. The 2.5-layer, DryVent shell keeps you dry during summer rainstorms, and the insulated midlayer stands alone as a warm layer to wear during autumn and spring. The insulated midlayer and shell zip together making the combined pieces a warm, waterproof, winter jacket. Filled with synthetic insulation, this is The North Face’s only three-in-one jacket with a Thermoball insulated midlayer. Primaloft Thermoball synthetic insulation acts similar to down feather insulation by being packable as well as having an incredible warmth-to-weight ratio. It also comes with the added benefit keeping the insulation in usable condition if you’re caught in a rainstorm with just the midlayer on.
- Three-in-one jacket for the city or outdoors
- Integrated layers zip together make one jacket
- External shell boasts a waterproof, breathable DryVent membrane
- Removable Thermoball insulator adds extra warmth on cold days
- Item #TNF04OG

For what I use it for it works great. Light enough to not cause me to peel it off when shoveling snow yet warm enough to wear in winter wind. Glad I bought it.

average, at best
not worth $300..and $200 may be 2 much. exterior does not feel very burly and wrist straps and zippers are not quality, to put it lightly. Used 2 days in 15-25 degree resort skiing..layered with patagonia mid-weight+ was a must. The liner is pretty thin. Probably decent for 40 degree days but anything colder..or rain/snow..would not be using this jacket. Not big on returning items that i've used so guess i'm stuck with it. will report back if my opinion changes..but i doubt it.

Jacket is very thin. This is more of a spring jacket. Also if you are not 6 ft or taller, jacket will wear a little long. Overall a nice jacket, just a lot more of a lightweight jacket than it appears in the photos.

Worth the money - Great Coat
Great jacket. I’ve used the rainshell by its self, the inner liner by its self and they work wonderfully a part. Pairing them together on some of the colder/windy days is all you need and it performs like a charm. I went out in 40° F weather with just a t shirt underneath and was fine. Super warm but breaths well. I’ve stood outside in a wind ridden thunderstorm, rolled in snow to really test it out and came out dry and warm after my rudimentay experiments. Looking forward to trying it out in Iceland. Worth the money!

Dad's New Coat
I bought this for my father and he only had good things to say. The navy blue color is spot on and is great for the cold Utah winters. One of the best things my father loved about this coat is that you can remove the puffy jacket on the inside to wear on little warmer days. My father has used this for skiing and said the waterproof and wind resistant is great for chilly days on at the resort. He is 6 foot and got a XXL to have a little room for layering if he needs to. The fit is great and worth every penny.

Decent three-season jacket.
Taken this out on a couple ski trips and a couple late-fall backpacking trips, where temps got down to about 30F with the wind chill - you'll definitely want some additional layers if you're not moving around. For me – base layer + this jacket was enough while actively hiking or skiing, but if you’re standing still or sitting around the fire, you’ll want a fleece or a down puffy to wear underneath. The zippers feel a little lightweight for a this kind of jacket, and it's nearly impossible for me to get zipped with gloves on. I don’t know how it could be redesigned to fix this, but it’s a little annoying that the pockets aren’t insulated. After a year of use, the waterproofing has held up pretty well. At 5'7", ~150, the small size gives me a lot of room to layer...maybe a little too much. If I had it to do over again, I probably could have gotten away with the XS.

Okay - just okay.
I have other 3 in 1 NF jackets and this seemed like a great replacement. However, it's not as good as previous versions. One big complaint is the liner - it's an annoyingly "grippy" fleece. So the liner cuff pushes out from under the shell every time. So, you spend a few minutes pushing the cuff back under the liner every time you put it on...the tiny tab doesn't hold the liner cuff in place...go with a poly liner (or I'll just use my old jacket). Nice color for wearing at the mall though - not as tough as my decade old NF.

Disappointed with North Face
This is my 3rd North Face winter jacket and regrettably will be my last. I bought my first jacket over ten years ago and it is still the best one. The second was about the same price but noticeably less quality. This one is more expensive than the previous two but made with cheaper, less quality materials and missing previously included features. I live in the northeast and you need gear that is going to be tough and keeps you warm and dry. This jacket doesn't protect from the elements well. It doesn't ventilate well. It doesn't have as many adjustments as previous models. Most importantly, it doesn't keep you warm. North Face has become a lifestyle brand where they were once for legitimate outdoor users. They cut every conceivable corner with their products and still charge a premium. Brands like Marmot or even Columbia are better than what The North Face is now. The quality of my first North Face winter jacket was comparable to brands such as Patagonia or Arc'teryx. I'm disappointed in what they have become.

Jacket Not Warm
The jacket, as mentioned by others, is extremely light. There is hardly any filling in the thermoball jacket. The windbreaker doesn't block out any wind. I tried this jacket out in 40 degree temperatures in NYC, and it didn't keep me warm at all. Additionally, the jacket feels cheaply made. For the price that I paid, it was definitely not worth it. This is not what I expected from NorthFace.

Great jacket, but the red jacket has a thermoball jacket that looks like your a hunter. The orange is very bright.

Great Cold Weather Jacket
Bought this jacket for my brother for his birthday and he has had nothing but rave reviews. When the temperatures have dropped into the 20's this winter, he's said it keeps him and toasty. Fits great, and I like all the color options. Another north face win!

good stretch & thermoball combo a winner
Got this as a Xmas present and have used in Japan skiing and hiking. The outer shell fabric felt thin and was worried about waterproof capabilities, but has been used on days when its been puking snow and no issues with water penetration. The thermoball insulation jacket is a great addition. Have taken it out and using with other jackets as key layer. One complaint...pls put internal chest pocket, or liner pocket into the chest area for phone or music player...the jacket has this feature, but its lost when using the thermoball liner independently or with other gear. Fits a little large and the stretch in the fabric gives plenty of movements..and there is ample room to layer...haven't used the shell on a standalone basis yet...but can imagine it will be quite a versatile jacket for hiking in summer/spring. The whole jacket (including liner) packs down to nothing. Combined with being very light, it will become a travel accessory for sure!

Excellent coat in sub zero conditions
Bought three of these coats for my husband, son and the woman's version for myself. We were initially a little worried about whether they would keep us warm skiing (we are from Louisiana...so not typically use to cold conditions). The coats did not disappoint. Our core never got cold. Highly recommend if you don't want a bulky & puffy looking ski coat!!!

Pricey-Light- Regular sized hood - Warm
Cons: I personally think that this jacket is a little pricey. It's pretty light, doesn't have interior pockets and the pockets aren't lined. The thermoball is thin also. Pros: Overall, the jacket looks pretty good! Doesn't feel like a winter jacket. But all I need is to get to work and for daily casual wear. So this jacket is great for me. I'm use to wearing a hoodie or a zip-up cardigan underneath. So a baselayer with this jacket is a great combination. The fit is definitely relaxed so medium worked out great. A major plus is that the hood isn't ridiculously large! I returned my last jacket because the hood came down to my chin! And finally, I have to say that the customer service at backcountry.com has been great!!!! They were very helpful with the return and purchasing process.

Not as warm as I imagined
Shell technology is superior for stopping wind and rain. Thermoball inner jacket sufficiently warm if user is generating some body heat to about 30 degrees. The thermoball technology has its warmth limits and is paper thin in this jacket. For harsher conditions and temperatures below 30 degrees (think Vermont skiing in January) I have found that slipping a 800 fill down jacket underneath as additional base layer makes the jacket downright blizzard proof. As mentioned by other reviewers, the pockets aren't lined so if you are using jacket for something less than skiing, like walking your dog, you still need gloves.

Good, but not great
Pros: Warm for size and weight, North Face quality, Not break the bank expensive Cons: The velcro snaps at the wrist SUCK, the DWR is questionable, COLD HANDS because there is no liner in the front pockets I received this jacket in fusebox grey, in a large. It looks much darker on the website, in real life it looks like every other North Face grey I have ever had. I took it out of the packaging and was immediately impressed with the weather tight seams and zippers, and the fact that this jacket isn't "crinkly" despite being thin and primarily synthetic. It looks like a higher end technical jacket. Good job NF. I put the jacket on and was very happy with the fit. I am tall and skinny, and this jacket is the right size and length for my body type. I did use the front pocket pull strings to tighten the lower half of the jacket up, because it was letting in too much cold air. Since receiving the jacket, I have been lucky enough to get freezing rain, hail, and snow. I have only worn this jacket without another outer layer underneath, just t shirts and flannels. In all of these conditions, including wind, this jacket excels. It keeps me dry, warm, and comfortable. Except for my hands. The wrist snaps are TERRIBLE. You have to play with the velcro, repeatedly, in order to get it to stick, and it never really sticks together tight enough for my liking. The rest of the jacket looks and feels expensive. This feels really, really cheap, as if it was simply an afterthought. The front pockets have no liner! I was shocked that on a jacket that retailed for $300 they overlooked that. I decided to try out the jacket anyway, thinking it couldn't be that bad. It is that bad. Because the pockets are in front of the inner jacket, you have no additional wind protection or warmth. All though the jacket itself doesn't let wind in, it makes the shell really cold, and that in turn, makes your hands really cold. I needed a good pair of gloves anyway, but it is unfortunate that I have to buy them because of this jacket. This DWR makes me nervous. While it does a great job repelling big droplets, in the mist or very light rain however, water seems to stick. I have only worn the jacket in the rain three times. The first two times were in heavy rain for more than 15 minutes at a time with no problems. The third time was mist for about 20 minutes at a time, and when I got in my car, I noticed very small 'wet' spots on the jacket, around my front pockets. Regardless of the droplet size, I would assume it should bead right off because it was new. I am going to apply a ton of my own waterproofing because I don't want to risk it in the future if I need to stay dry, but before I do so I am going to wear it in the rain again just to be sure. This jacket retails for $300 new. Had I paid $300, I would be upset and likely attempted to return the jacket. But, because Backcountry has great sales, I got it on sale and got free 2 day shipping (How to create a loyal customer). If you need a shell for skiing or snowboarding or just cold weather, consider this jacket. It has a great range of movement and I am more than warm enough in 28-35 degree weather with just a t shirt on underneath. It keeps the wind out, and unless I got a lemon, it will keep you dry for a long time. The velcro at the wrists sucks, and the front pockets offer no warmth, so you have been warned.

Great shell, not super heavy
This is a thinner shell/insulated coat combo even with the liner zipped into the coat. It's perfect for skiing and > 20F days for the most part and isn't super heavy. The liner is actually not quite as shiny, metallic and cheap looking as the online pic's. The liner material is more like an older North Face Redpoint insulated jacket. Also, if you have an older insulated coat from North Face, it will fit and zip into this shell. My old Redpoint which is a little heavier than this liner zipped right into the coat. Nice design. Adjustable hood is solid too. Fits GIRO (Large size) helmet but can be adjusted so you don't have a wind sail on top of your head if you're not wearing a helmet. Size Medium fits perfect. 5'11", 175lbs athletic build.

What tempature range is this good at?
February 22, 2019
Hey Donald. Brands don't provide temperature ratings on clothing because warmth depends on many different variables including activity level, metabolism, perspiration, and weather, as well as the other clothing layers you are wearing.
