The North Face Women's Nuptse 2 Jacket is a down hiking jacket for cold weather trips into the wilderness. The redesigned jacket has been shaped to provide style and shape to the feminine physique so you can venture onto the city streets looking stellar when not tromping through the woods. Wherever you are when it's cold, throw on the 700-fill goose down jacket to insulate. The lightweight jacket conveniently compresses down into it's very own hand pocket, so you can clip it to your harness or toss it into your pack and not even realize it's there, until the temps drop and you're wearing it of course. It's got all sorts of tricks, you can wear it on it's own or use it as a midlayer as it's zip-in compatible with certain hard shell jackets by the same company (The North Face, but you knew that).

SPECIFICATIONS of The North Face Women's Nuptse 2 Jacket
"VERY warm! Runs a little big since it's "Relaxed Fit"."
Coat is SUPER warm, which was my main objective in buying it! I got a small, but it's rather big on me. I didn't realize it was "Relaxed Fit" until I read that on the tag, so it looks a little puffy/oversized on me ;) May send it back for an XS due to the fit.
"The JACKET itself is great - warm, somewhat trim, etc - the color is not great."
I love the jacket, but the color that is the contrast color is actually a super bright purple/pink hue (I don't have it in front of me)...It was FAR too bright for me, and just garrish, in my opinion. The color shown in the pic seems far more tasteful, and I would have considered keeping that one. As it was, I bought two black, and two of this green (L and M of both), and ended up keeping the black M. Many have said these run small - I found the opposite to be true! The M is almost too big, but I tried a small on in a local store, and it's too tight in the chest (I'm a 36D). I'm 5'7" and a muscular/lean 155 lbs. If you were similar but a C or below, I'd suggest the small!
"Awesome jacket........Definitely will keep me warm this winter. True fit."
I am a loyal North Face fan..and this jacket is definitely worth every penny. I love that it is lightweight but yet it will keep me warm this winter. Not a true fan of bulky jackets, so this jacket is perfect for me. I find that it is true to size and is very comfortable. I am definitely one happy camper! :-)
"Awesome jacket for most after-activity days. Packs small/light - no huge volume or weight penalty."
The woman's medium Nupste jacket is right-on fit size - small volume and weight for packing light. Great color - and its got a sexy fit. Perfect for those heavy activity days when you need a quick warmer-upper as the sun's dropping. Pull it out of the self-contained stuff sack pocket - and boom, you're "good to go" when the temps start dropping fast. Get this jacket - great value for its thermal capability, plus the 2-day free shipping bonus code is awesome!
"Whoopie, I got it the next day! call Moose Jaw if you want it the next day."
I order a North Face Nuptse 2 jacket size M and got it the next day, but it was too small. Guess i should have gone on a diet last summer. Then I returned it and ordered a L and it came the next day! WOW, I love it. We had the worst winter with 55 inches of snow and minus 43 degrees. It was so cold, my dog had to wear a sweater and socks to go out and shake a leg. Too bad I didn't have the jacket then but I just ordered last week and now I know it will not be cold or snowy. So, my request for MOOSEJAW is that you have North Face made doggy jackets so Henley will be really warm next winter when his leg needs to be hiked.

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.
