Style and warmth.
When date night consists of ice skating in the park, you need a jacket that's both warm and stylish, so you turn to The North Face Women's Far Northern Parka. The asymmetrical front zip protects your chin from uncomfortable chafing and gives the jacket a stylish flair that stands out in a crowd. A structured, oversized collar provides extra protection from the wind. The lightweight loft of the jacket's insulation helps you stay warm all night, even after the crowds have thinned.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: Medium
I didn't ultimately keep this jacket because the sleeves were too short on me. I don't have abnormally long arms, but I am 5'10" and prefer my jacket sleeve to hit about an inch to two inches below my wrist bone. This jacket hit me right at the wrist bone. When I would bend my arms, the jacket would rise up an inch or two above my wrist bone.
It was warm, a nice length, and I liked that the zipper was offset so that when you have it zipped up it doesn't hit you in the mouth. I don't know why more jackets aren't made like this.
This would have been a top pick for me if it wasn't for the sleeve length. I have experienced this with other North Face jackets, so maybe this is just their cut.
For reference, I'm 5'10", 155 lbs, a bit curvy on the hips, and I ordered a Medium. I was able to zip it up just fine.
Feathers and more feathers
As soon as I put on the coat the feathers started flying. Im surprised because I've got other TNF coats from Backcountry but I think I need to try somewhere else.
Does this jacket have a hood?
Hey Rachel, This jacket does not have a hood, but the collar is a bit exaggerated and longer. If you have any other questions on it or would like help putting in an order for one, feel free to reach me at my direct line 801.204.4547 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Best regards, Connor
