The wind will huff, and it’ll puff, and then it’ll get bored because you didn’t even notice.
- The North Face designed this 3-in-1 jacket to be worn multiple ways—the shell alone, the liner alone, and both the shell and liner together
- The shell uses waterproof breathable HyVent fabric to shed outside precipitation and to allow excess internal heat and moisture to escape
- Underarm zips help increase breathability and shed excess heat during heavy activity
- WindWall liner jacket is made of a highly wind-resistant fleece that reduces windchill and increases overall comfort
- Windwall liner jacket also provides moderate insulation for outdoor activities—pair the liner with additional base layers when the temperature takes a nosedive
- Fully adjustable hood cinches tight around your head (for when the wind and snow are really howling) but is also removable for when the weather clears up
- Item #TNF5793
- Q & A
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
- Fit: True to size
I bought this coat last spring for my husband. He has only been wearing the outer shell for about two months now, and the velcro on the bottom of the outer shell is taring away from the fabric. I wouldn't expect that out of a Northface coat usually, but I'm not sure it was worth the price.

Bought this jacket to replace my old one that I've worn for the last 12 years. I had the jacket shipped to Redmond, Oregon as I wanted to use it for several planned hikes at Smith Rock State Park and Pilot Butte in Bend. The jacket performed fantastic as I anticipated and the new liner jacket appeared to be better insulated then the older one I had. It seemed to fit more snug to but without the liner jacket the shell fit great like the old one. The real test was when I got back home to Sacramento and used the jacket in my backyard during 4 days of heavy rains to sweep my pool of leaves and other debris from two powerful storms that passed. Wearing the jacket under constant heavy rains and winds I was very impressed with its waterproof characteristics and the velcro sleeve ties worked great as well as the hood. Several weeks later I used the jacket with the liner once again spending 8 hours 125 ft below the surface in a concrete vault that was pretty cold and very damp and once again the jacket combined with the liner kept me very comfortable. The chest pocket is a clever add on and very functional.
So far, so good!! I bought this to replace a TNF Condor jacket. I was a little skeptical because it had mixed reviews. Needless to say, I've been very pleased. I wore it to a college football game right after I got it. It was extremely warm! It fits perfectly too.. I have had problems w/ TNF jackets fitting before, but not this one.
Backcountry is reliable company! nice product, also nice customer service!
could you recommend the size
i want to check the size. i'm 145lb 5.8ft waist 2.5ft.
could you recommend the size medium or small ??
Not very warm
The coat was little snug for the size. I would buy a size larger. The coat looks nice, but it is not warm. In weather below 40 degrees F the coat is drafty, and you can feel the cold coming through, especially in the sleeves. It is not worth the money.
Not quite impressive
I've been using the 'The North Face WindWall Triclimate Jacket' for two months now and have to say - I'm not quite impressed with it. The jacket itself performs really well except for a couple of things which are not so good with the jacket.
The pockets on the outer jacket or the shell pick up cold because of whatever fabric that is. I had to keep my hands in the inner jacket pockets (if I do not have the gloves on).
Another thing is the hood, ahhh..not sure how is that going to help during winter chill...and is made just to keep dry but not warm. Had to order a beanie later.
I give 3 1/2 stars for keeping me warm apart from the two things mentioned above.
Together, the fleece and shell make a warm option when its super windy. With just a t-shirt underneath I am usually warm down to about 25-30 degrees. However if I layer it with a heavier wool baselayer, Im good down to 15degrees easily.
Apart is a little different story. The shell has a ton of features (pit zips, taped zippers, breathable waterproof membrane) and is great. I usually wear it around town when its rainy or windy. It is quite heavy if you are looking to backpack with it. (as far as just a shell layer to carry when its warm. If its cold weight is less a consideration) The fleece is warm in 50degree weather when its not super windy. I bought this fleece for the wind wall protection, and am a little disappointed. It blocks maybe 40% of the wind, which is great for a fleece but not as great as TNF says it is. It is also a little heavy to backpack with, if you are carrying it as an extra mid layer.
Great Jacket for windy day and comfortable to wear. The jacket is not suited for temperature under 25F.

i bought this a year ago but never really wear this because it isn't warm at all.
What alternative fleece can I zip in that would be warmer than the windwall that came with it?
I believe the men's Nuptse 2 will zip in. It's really warm. 700 fill down.
For fleece the Denali or Khumbu are good. The Denali is the warmer of the two.

How accurate is the sizing? I am 5-11 and 180 lbs. with broad shoulders. I own the Nuptse down jacket in a size L and it fits great except for the tight shoulders. Should I get a L or XL. I am afraid an XL would baggy. Experience or suggestions welcomed
Thanks for the question. I actually have a very similar build to you and the Large would definitely work better for you in most cases with The North Face WindWall Triclimate Jacket - Men's. The only exception would be if you want to layer more than a little bit underneath (more than 2 under layers. If this is the case, then go with XL.
TNF generally fits true to size but then again some of us don't and custom tailored clothing is a luxury we mostly can't afford. TNF usually has a full cut in most outerwear so you can go with the Large and get tight shoulders or the XL and have a boxy midsection and draw it in some with the waist cord. Arc'Teryx and some other makers offer a more athletic fit so you might want to give them a test fit if possible. You also might want to look for clothing that offers a waist and bottom hem draw cord to reduce the bulk around your midsection while allowing shoulder room. Flexible, stretchy fabrics like soft shells designed for climbing can also give you the shoulder room you need while keeping the waist bulk down. TNF, and most other companies offer soft shells like this. Good Luck!

Hi, I'm Asian 5'5'' 170lbs.. I'm curious as to how the "small" the sizes actually run. Would I be okay w a medium?
Check your measurements against the sizing chart below the price. They are accurate.
I'm 5'5 about 165 and I wear a size small. Medium is too big around the waist and a little long on the sleeve for me. I like my jackets fitted. Hope this helps.

I'm 6' and about 195 ibs with a 44ish chest, I usually wear a large but after reading some of these reviews, Im leaning towards an XL, any suggestions?
I would probably go with the XL. Even if it does end up being a -little- big, you can use the extra room to layer.
I currently have the Atlas Triclimate...
I currently have the Atlas Triclimate jacket and it fits snug on the armpit/shoulder region. Does this fit any different? Also, does anyone know how the Vortex would compare to these two in terms of warms and comfortibility/versatility?
I have Vortex and Atlas Jacket. Both of them are small size. Vortex is larger than Atlas especially around the waistline.

what are the 4 buttons for on the flap at the bottom of the outer shell (2 on each side)
Could be for a powder skirt (prevents snow from entering the body area when skiing or sporting in snow.)
