"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
"Great everyday jacket for everyday cold weather."
With this style of jacket you want it to be warm, but functional and to be flattering. I like this jacket because most jackets in this style make you look and feel like the Michelin Man. This coat let's you have a waist!!! Warm and stylish!
Bought this for my wife who absolutely loves this jacket. Its super warm and not to baggy, she wears it everywhere!While its not totally waterproof, we've been out in the jacket in heavy rain and it holds up well for a few minutes before getting wet, so in light rain you should be fine, but if you intend on being outside for long periods of time in possibly heavier rain, bring a waterpoof shell.
I looked every where for this coat in a medium and absolutely no stores stocked it. I was told the best bet was to buy it from this site. I was skeptical of buying such an expensive jacket over a web site, but it truly is a great jacket. I am amazed at how warm this jacket is even though it feels like a summer jacket. The quality and functionality of this is unmatched and truly worth more then the proce tag.
