Odd texture and sizingThe material used to make this jacket is quite rubbery, it's like pulling on a wetsuit. The deal-breaker for me was the cut of the jacket. I have other North Face jackets, both their slim "Active Fit" and their loose "Relaxed Fit" all in size S (this item is "Relaxed Fit"). When I tried on the same size S in this jacket, I was astonished to see that the high chest area above the bust had a extra 2"+ of excess material. This doesn't sound like a big deal, but the stiffness of the material means it will not drape softly. Instead, the fabric projects out and you get an extremely visible "bubble" at the front of each armhole. I loved the asymmetrical zipper but overall it was so bad I had to send it back.
