I had the NF down vest and loved it. But wanted a little more for the colder days so I ordered this jacket. Even though it's a down jacket and a little poofy, it's not big or bulky. I absolutely love this jacket and wear it everywhere.
I bought this as a gift for my girlfriend for Xmas. The fit is true to size. Originally she wanted a green down jacket, but the Khaki and blue color looks awesome on her and she loved it. It's dark enough that it does not show dirt easily either. The length falls right below the waist.
Bought this jacket for my 14-yr old daughter. It has been a crazy cold winter - incredibly windy - but she is warm and happy. Makes me happy. A bit bulky compared to some other styles, but much warmer too. She wouldn't trade it for anything.
This was different than expected, but mostly just color -- drastically different than the online appearance. But once I got over the surprise, I do like the actual color better, so no problems there. I have worn my Thunder down for three straight years, in black - GREAT coat. I wanted something in Color this time, but still looking for Warmth. (I chose brilliant blue.). This doesn't have as high a warmth rating as the Thunder, but it is close. It is puffy, yes, but still shapely enough that I don't feel like the Michelin man. I typically wear size 2 and bought the small. I could have easily gotten the xs I think, but the small fits nicely and I won't ever have to worry about my outfit (always layers) fitting within it - plenty of room. Cannot attest to its actual warmth yet, as the zero temps here suddenly became 40s-50s-60s! But I am guessing it will be warm. As I said, plenty of room to add a fleece as well, should I need it. Pleased.
"Warm, comfy, and doesn't make me feel like a penguin!"
I love this jacket! It fits great! I wasn't 100% sure what size I should get, (I'm 5'10'' 150 lbs) I can't wait for it to keep me warm while I visit the frozen north in two weeks! I think it's going to be great!!! :)
This jacket is surprisingly lightweight, while providing the best warmth of any down jacket I have ever had. I live in Chicago and in the harsh winters and high winds in the city I am comfortable with this, whether it be for just a walk or extended periods outside in the cold.The only downside is that it is not waterproof, but it will hold up in light rain. The felt lined pockets are nice for when you forget gloves.
"I have this jacket, but most importantly, I donated this jacket to a young lady in need."
I love my Nuptse 2 jacket so much that I donated one to a young lady in need. She is slightly impaired, but has a paper route in Houghton, MI, where there is a lot of lake effect snow. The heater in her old truck does not work, and she drives it 200 miles a day dropping off bundles of newspapers that get delivered every day by other paper route holders. She needed a warm jacket, and she definitely got one in this jacket.
I bought this to replace another North Face down jacket I've had for a few years. My old one was a little on the small side and I was nervous about buying this one a size larger, thinking it may be too big. I'm almost always miserably between sizes, medium and large for TNF. Got this in a large and it's perfect! And of course, like my old down jacket it's soooooo incredibly warm. As always, I got it super fast from Moosejaw with twenty dollars worth of rewards points to boot! Very happy :D
