My jacket came in just in time for yet another New England winter.. and I'm in love! I've waited forever to get it and finally took advantage with the Cyber Monday deal. It's super lightweight , yet still comfortable. I really like that I don't look like I'm drowning in it like a lot of other winter jackets. I'm 5' 7 and about 165 pounds and the large fits with enough room for me to wear a shirt and sweater underneath. Extra plus is that the sleeves aren't too short, which is usually a problem because of my long arms. It's Just right! All in all, I'm very happy with my choice.
I bought this because my last one from a different brand was ratty and disgusting. It turned out to be so much better. It's so warm, and it resists rain which is GREAT. It's also long enough to keep my thighs warm. Just stay true to your size because I decided to go up a size since my old one was too small, but it was way too big. Your normal size should fit you perfectly! Also, I love the pocket lining (you'll just have to buy the coat to find out what it's really like).
"Who cares if I look like the Michelin Man?"
My love for this parka is indescribable. This jacket makes it socially acceptable to walk around in basically a down blanket. I'd be lying if I said I haven't fallen asleep wearing this parka because it it just that comfortable. The two way zipper if very useful when you sit down. Here in Michigan, the winters can be quite frigid and very little, if any, wind makes it through. I've worn this parka in a blizzard and stayed dry. My legs below the knees hate me because they don't get to stay toasty like the rest of my body. I am 5'5", 140 lbs with fairly broad shoulders and I wear a small. Overall, buy this jacket & your warm body will love you. Metropolis for the win!!
I have had this coat for about a year and it's perfect for cold winter days. It's extremely warm without being extremely heavy. The length makes it super warm because of the extra coverage. This coat will last a really long time, so worth every penny!
Bought the Metropolis Parker against my better judgement yesterday. It has a very skimpy hood which doesn't even cover your head. However after looking around at other winter coats I found that I liked that the Metropolis is lightweight and slimming so I guess you can't have anything. North Face really should do something about this matter...It's an easy fix.
Bought this as a gift for my wife to replace the one she has. Her previous one is several years old now - the tab on the zipper broke and she accidentally burned a hole near the bottom of the jacket.She loves her old one and I am sure she will love this one too (she better or I will be mad because she would not let me look at other comparable jackets that could have been cheaper)!! One difference from the old one is the color of TNF logos on the front and back are now black to match the exterior color of the jacket. Previously, they were white logos on a black jacket. Also, we are not sure if the sizing has changed slightly. Her previous is a small and I got her another small. It seems a little bigger than the old one or the old one has lost some of it volume over the years - your guess is as good as mine...Don't ask me for more, I am male...
"It's a beautiful deep jewel tone blue and so much prettier than walking around in a down comforter!"
This parka has a great fit so one actually looks like a female figure in it and I'm warm as toast. The ample arm length is a plus on any winter attire ...I can't stand it when my wrists get cold! We haven't had the Wisconsin deep-freeze yet but I'm looking forward to it in my stylin' Metropolis! Moosejaw has great cusomer service PLUS they give loads of free advise, just like my big sister!
Finally ordered this coat after trying on numerous times at the store. Also got a 50 gc...thanks cannot wait for it to come in! Went up a size so sweaters fit comfy underneath, the length hits perfect. I bought because I walk in between classes and its freezing!
This coat is like walking around wearing a blanket. It repels moisture so even in rain or snowy weather I stay warm. One drawback is I wish there was a way to clasp the bottom, below where the zipper ends. It can fly up in the wind. I'm 5'5" and a small is perfect. True love in a jacket.
I work outdoors in NW Iowa. I own 2 North Face Metropolis jackets that are 2 and 5 years old. I was ready for an update. Both coats are a medium, Metropolis, as was my order. When it finally arrived and I tried it on.. it was HUGE. The sleeves were 1" longer than both my other jackets, it was at least an inch longer and almost 2 inches wider. When I called in to chat line I was told that it was a problem with North Face and that they actually make them larger than before as the customers are getting bigger. I was so dissapointed. I asked your chat person if I should buy a small. I was told that it would be way too small.I love all my North Face outerwear but I am very unhappy with the changes in sizing.. I plan to return it without a plan for what's next. As far as shipping. Prevoius orders have always been fast, but this order, I had to chase down FedEx to get it almost 2 weeks later.
