I bought this as a gift and the recipient couldn't be happier. She had tried NF jackets in the past but none really brought the right combination of fit and function. She says this works as advertised when it comes to the whole windwalling thing and that it's nice because it isn't as "boxy" as other NF jackets. I wouldn't really know about that but I really appreciate that it doesn't leave fuzzies on my car seats.
The North Face Windwall 1 is a great jacket!! This was my first North Face jacket and it definitely got me hooked. It has the perfect amount of warmth and blocks out wind very well. I love the fit of it also! I really like the cinch cords around the waist line. I've gotten many compliments on this jacket. It's definitely worth buying! If you're looking for a very stylish, great jacket for fall and spring, this is the one for you!!
"Keeps you very warm without being bulky!"
I love this jacket. It completely cuts the wind so it keeps you very warm. The jacket itself is not bulky at all and is not lined. I usually just wear it over a tshirt and it keeps me warm enough in the winter. It's not completely water proof but it takes a while for the water to soak through - it mostly just beads up. I absolutely love it!
I live in Michigan and this jacket is perfect for the cold weather granted you layer it with another sweatshirt underneath. Worn by itself it doesn't stand up to wind very well, but it was my first jacket I bought through Moosejaw and still my favorite. I own three north face jackets, but this is still my favorite because I like to layer up and it's a good anywhere jacket
I got the Windwall jacket just in time for the first Christmas Day snowstorm to hit Texas in a very long time. The wind was crazy but this jacket blocked it. I highly recommend buying this jacket to anyone!
