Rated 4 out of 5 by from Warm but not as thick as I thought Great coat, very comfortable. Thing I love: the length (I am 5'5 and it hits at my knees), the hood with bungees to keep it tight around my head, the zipper that zips up or down, the color, and it does a good job keeping me warm on early winter midwest days in the 30s. My complaints are that it is not as thick or heavy as it appears to be in the photo, it is losing feathers through the seams at a concerning rate of speed, and it does not block the wind like I thought it would. Overall, I would recommend it for people wanting a very lightweight but warm winter coat...but if I lived anywhere North of St. Louis, probably wouldn't recommend for a winter coat that you'll be outside for a while in.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Surprisingly warm! I was hesitant about keeping this jacket when I first got it - wasn't sure if the 550 fill would be warm enough for Chicago winter. But it has proven very warm and light to wear too! I purchased the heathered grey which is different to all the usual black, purple and blue jackets one sees everyone else wearing. My only complaint is in the sizing. I'm usually a L but the cut of the coat doesn't accommodate my hips so I had to size up to XL, which makes the top half of the jacket a bit lose. A little more of a shaped cut would have made the jacket a better fit. Overall I'm happy with the purchase though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect winter coat! I have been looking to replace my aged black down coat for a couple of years, but didn't find the right replacement until now. I am 5'7", 132 lbs, and this coat fits perfectly in medium. The sleeves are long enough for my longer-than-average arms, and the medium fits overs my bulkiest sweater or a suit coat no problem, but still looks svelte. The silver color is a nice alternative to black - I don't look like everyone else walking around. I liked that the hood zipped off, since I never wear a hood. I have had no trouble with either the zipper or with feathers escaping. And, not that anyone sees it, the lining is very cool!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Coat I bought this for my daughter who is in her first year of college. She is attending a school that is nicknamed "The Tundra." She needed a long warm and stylish coat. The best part is that I, the mom, picked it out and the teenage daughter approved and loves it!!!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Teal not so teal. I have a Metropolis Parka from 2008 that is still in good condition that I love. When I saw the Juniper Teal color I thought I had to have it. Unfortunately, the coat is not nearly as teal IRL, it is more of a bright blue. Ultimately I returned the coat because of the color, it just wasn't what I expected. I will say the quality of the coat is decent, but not as good as it used to be. The zipper is now plastic instead of metal and the filling has been reduced to 550 from 600. It's still a nice coat and had the color been more teal, I probably would have kept it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am in Love! I did a lot of research... looking for a warm winter coat that wasn't bulky. I choose this coat hoping for the best. I Love Moosejaw, so I thought this might be a win win. Oh my Gosh.... I LOVE this coat. It is so lightweight and it seems to adjust to the weather I am facing. It keeps me warm no matter what; but even with 45 degree weather when I thought I didn't Need my new down coat, I couldn't leave it home! I wore it, worried I would be hot.....nope, it was perfect! So, at 17 degrees, and at 45 degrees, I am sooo happy..... lightweight And perfection....And NOT bulky AT ALL..... Love it!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Use to be a great coat! I bought this coat for my youngest daughter for when she goes to college next year. (I bought the same coat, before The NorthFace "updated" this style, for my other two daughters before they went to college & they loved the coat. It kept them warm & dry when walking across campus in the dead of the midwest winter). Well, I had heard that the updated version was not as nice as the original, but I thought I would give it a try anyway. I ordered the same size as the ones we already have because it fit my daughter perfectly. When she tried the new one on, the sleeves were short & the coat was tight. There is also the fact that they decreased the amount of filling from 600 to 550 and kept the price where it was. Switching over to Patagonia!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Sauce I have wanted this jacket for years and I am so glad I finally bellied up the the bar. I bought this coat at the beginning of December thinking I would need it for the typical crippling winters we usually have up here in the Mitten State. Although its been unseasonably warm, this coat has been perfect! It's so versatile. It doesn't make me overheat if I need to wear it out on a warmer day and is perfect for those strenuous activities such as (not hiking…) holiday shopping! However, it has also helped me get through the few 20 degree and wind whipping days we have had. I would highly recommend it to anyone who is on the edge. What's one more jacket, right? Any coat that covers my legs and tushy is a friend of mine.

Is this parka machine washable? This is important to me. Thank you.

Asked by: JayJayMom2006
Hey there, Thanks for the question. The North Face does not recommend machine washing their down products as doing so can shorten the life of the garment or impact the warmth of the down itself. To clean your jacket they recommend having it professionally cleaned by a service that specializes in cleaning down.

In relationship to warmth, what is the difference between the Metropolis and the Miss Metro? Same length, fill is the same; however, MM is heavier weight than the M. What makes it heavier? I need stylish coat to survive windchill, singe-digits in Chicago.

Asked by: SgirlChicago
Hey there, Thanks for the question. The major difference in these jackets is that the Metropolis is treated with DWR on the outer shell, making it water resistant, while the Miss Metro does not contain any water-resistant treatments. The warmth is about the same on both, but the Metropolis is constructed with a slimmer upper body which saves weight in addition to the polyester lining, while the Miss Metro has a nylon satin twill lining. If you're planning on wearing this in heavy snows I'd go with the Metropolis since it has the DWR treatment.

How does the North Face Metropolis coat compare to the Marmot Quebec/montreal coat?

Asked by: Debbie922
Hey there, Thanks for reaching out to us! Actually, these coats do not have a temperature rating. In fact, most coats do not have temperature ratings. This is for several reasons. Mainly, it's because warmth is a subjective thing, unique to each person. Not only that, but there are other factors that can affect a person's (jacket's) warmth: wind, humidity, activity level, what else your wearing, etc. However, there are still helpful hints you can use to guide you. Best bet will be to check the insulation. TNF Metropolis Parka uses 550-fill power down, while Marmot's Montreal Coat uses 700-fill power down insulation. High-fill power down ranges from 550 to 900 fill. The higher the fill, the warmer the jacket. Hope this has helped you.

Is there any difference in warmth between this and Miss Metro? Also which of the two is a more fitted coat -especially slimmer coat body and not wide at the bottom -for a slim petite woman? 

Asked by: Joey
Hey there, TNF Metropolis Parka and TNF Miss Metro Parka are very similar! TNF Miss Metro Parka is designed after the extremely popular TNF Metropolis Parka. The unique characteristics of the Miss Metro is that it's shinier and the has a variegated quilted body. Because one was designed after the other, they both are a regular fit type. They both also have 550-fill power of goose down and use polyester/nylon combination.

Is this coat warm in below 0 weather?

Asked by: BriBri
Hey there, Thanks for reaching out to us! While TNF Metropolis Parka is a long down jacket where fashion meets winter, everyone has a different opinion about how cold is too cold which should be taken into consideration. The Metropolis Parka has 550-fill down, which is moderate. If your concerned about more warmth, you might consider a jacket with a higher fill and/or layering underneath for added protection against the elements.

Hi, can you please tell me if the down in this coat comes from live plucking from the birds? I'd like to find a long warm coat but don't want one that's caused a lot of pain and cruelty to animals. If not this one, do you have any other suggestions? 

Asked by: Brenda
Hey there, The North Face has recently created the Responsible Down Standard to help ensure that their down does not come from any force-fed or live-plucked animals as well as to provide trace-ability on all their products. The down certified by this standard is being incorporated into their products starting with their Fall 2015 line with intention to have the full product line certified by late 2017. Patagonia also has a very high standard for trace-ability on their items, and as of their fall 2014 line, all of their products contain only 100% traceable down.

When the DWR material gets wet from moderate rain, will it soak thru to the down fill?  

Asked by: Jenn
Hey Jenn, Thanks for the question. DWR will help to repel water, but it will not make a jacket waterproof, so in a heavy rain or snow the moisture that accumulates on this jacket will soak the down and remove it's loft and warmth properties. This will hold up fine in a light rain or snow.
