Lightweight Ultra warm.
The jacket feels very lightweight but is ultra warm. style looks close fitting but offers great movement. I am 6'1" and around 95kg (44" suit jacket) I bought the XL and it offers a looser fit but not too large.
The fabric feels very lightweight but stops any wind entering, quite shiny compared to outer fabrics on other brand down jackets.
Good long sleeve length with soft elasticated cuff (Not adjustable) Zippers have the usual NF solid build feel.
It's quite expensive for a down jacket, but compared to something like a RAB microlight alpine, you can definitely feel where the extra cost goes and that is its lighter weight and all round nicer feel.
I fully recommend this jacket .
My son loves it
Bought this jacket as a gift for my sons birthday at the beginning of March. He loves it and was so pleased to feel snug and warm as the temperatures dipped. It looks good and he is really happy with it.
Conquered the Beast from the East
Bought this jacket just before the recent adverse weather conditions set in and so glad I did. On first unpacking the jacket I noticed how shiny it looked compared to the picture and remember reading a review on the North Face website where the reviewer returned the product because it resembled a bin bag. I felt a bit self conscious going out in it but after a few days use didn’t regret wearing it at all. It was warm and light and very snug and felt like still being under the duvet. I felt only cold on my hands and face, so I will be looking for some suitable North Face gloves too. Bought the jacket when it was on offer saving me nearly a third off the RRP so I am well pleased with my purchase and with the efficient service I received from this site - will shop here more often from now on
Great gear! Slim fitting, Keeping warm.
It's as light as a feather.
However it’s not pass strong winds and cold air at all and kept the warm air.
I was surprised also that it fits small.
The North Face layering system is well thought out.
Wearing this L3 on top of L2 has a really good comfort.
I bought this at Jan 2018.
