Why choose whether you want to look good or stay comfortable this winter? The North Face Women's Metropolis Parka keeps you warm with lightweight, compressible 600-fill down insulation and it keeps you looking good with quilting throughout the body and a removable hood for a look that you can change with your mood.
While the Metropolis' timeless styling ensures that you won't have to shop for another casual winter coat next year. The face fabric is The North Face's soft nylon taffeta twill. It's been treated with a DWR, so it will shed light rain or snow. The recycled polyester taffeta lining is super-soft against your skin; it also receives a water-resistant treatment to help it dry quickly. Of course, the feature that you'll love the most is the warm 600-fill down insulation, which locks in the warmth to keep you comfortable on the coldest days.

I already own this coat and my daughter wanted one. Saw it on sale here and grabbed it. She loves it. It's warm enough to get back and forth to work without being so puffy to make you look bigger. The only thing (and this isn't a problem) is mine has the white stitching and the one I purchased for her, TNF black has black (picture clearly shows but I was so excited at price didn't notice) so North Face logo and 600 it's not noticeable and she doesn't care. In fact, for us it's an easy way to tell them apart grabbing them from the coat rack in the morning. It's so soft, not rough like some down coats. Living in NJ it gets cold, so we like to wear sweaters and not have our coats tight. I'm 5' 108 lbs and got a S, she's 5'2 130 and got the M. I've seen reviews where people say these runs large, but I think they are true to size. We're not waifs, obviously, so if you are very thin and like coats tight, then I supposed it may seem big to you but this is so much better in regards to that (imo) than many of the down coats out there. As far as length, we are short and it hits right above our knees, which we like. Again, we want to be warm and a shorter coat doesn't cut it. Worth the price (especially if you catch a sale)great investment and if you live in cold weather, a necessity. I think I have to get the North Face Powerstretch gloves next - for both of us. Pleasure to do business with Backcountry.
I gave this to the gf after hearing how cold she always was. Cold weather is no longer an issue with this awesome jacket. She loves this and the fit is great. Not overly baggy or on the slim side but just right. Still allows to layer under if needed. Ladies if your looking to stay warm look no further. This jacket is great at insulating.
I purchased my first metropolis parka a few years back and it was amazingly warm, literally the best coat I've ever had. I've recommended it to everyone I know. This year I purchased the same exact coat and it's not nearly as warm!! The jacket is a lot thinner and noticeably smaller. What gives? Is it a newer version or something?? Either way I am so disappointed with this product..
