Eek! Unless you are a size 0 don’t order. I have several North Face coats and jackets, windbreakers etc. I thought this would be a good spring purchase. However in ordering a large I could barely get the zipper up and I usually am a Medium in the North Face. Sadly have to return.
My family and I recently relocated to San Diego from Chicago. Adjusting to the weather here has been interesting, The temps can change by as much as 10 degrees from the coast to a few miles more inland. Since February til now, June 2019, mornings here have been quite chilly around 50° with warm sunny afternoons in the high 60’s to low 70’s and then a drop again for nighttime. We have found ourselves needing a light jacket. The heavy duty coats from North Face that we used during Chicago winters are overkill here. This jacket is just right for the mercurial weather in San Diego. Its very light weight, so it doesn't weigh you down while traveling. The color is gorgeous and I love that its not the black North Face EVERYONE has. IMO the jacket is heavier than a sweater, but lighter than a winter coat. Its enough to keep cold air and breezes away, but will not make you sweat. I love that it is so stylish and I can wear it when going out with friends, or running errands. I’d recommend it for dress casual and less. The jacket doesn’t take up much space in your life, so it’s easy to just stash in a closet or car until the time is needed. I would say, depending on what you wear underneath the jacker, you could use this in even cooler temperatures. I believe I read that it’s intended purpose was for layering. Add a thermal T or sweater underneath and a stylish scarf around your neck and this jacket will get you through 40° temps easy.
I specifically chose Zappos as the seller while buying it but to my disappointment, the jacket’s fill was coming out from collar & threads were torn too. I reordered this product because the first had fill coming out ; but second time again the filing was coming out from shoulders as well. Please Don’t select Zappos as seller.
This Jacket might go well as a liner for a Tri-Climate type of jacket, but this is definitely not for cold weather on it's own. Jacket is extremely thin, but I guess that's what is meant by " it's packable" -you could probably fold this up and place it in a pocket! Quality is good, no defects and looks and fit are fine, just not a stand alone winter jacket North of Georgia!
This jacket is super lightweight but so cozy and warm. I've always wanted one, but could not afford it at full price. Thank you to Amazon and Backcountry for making this purchase possible for me. I ordered the Asphalt Grey color. It's a nice, neutral color that matches well with everything. I received it in a very timely manner. I usually wear a Small in shirts and jackets, but based on reviews, I went one size up and purchased a Medium and it fit just right. This is one of the best purchases I have made on Amazon.
Love this NF coat! Saved approximately $70 (store price of $199 plus sales tax). I didn't notice "slim fit" when ordering (slim fit on tag), but North Face runs small so I ordered XL (I'm usually a large) and it fits perfect. Lightweight and great for running round in and out of stores when you don't want to get hot. The color is absolutely beautiful too.
