The Women's Metropolis Parka from The North Face features the finest Hungarian goose down feathers to insulate and keep you toasty warm in temperatures as low as the teens. This 600 fill down jacket has an adjustable, snap-off hood perfect for those extra cold, windy days, and it can also be removed for warmer, sunny afternoons. This down jacket provides super-tight insulation with the two-way center front zipper and snap-down closure to prepare you for brisk windy conditions when taking your little companion for a walk around the city. The winter parka provides goose down all the way to your knees and has an internal media pocket for your cell or any other hand-held gadget you simply must have at your fingertips AT ALL TIMES. I heard the idea for this parka came from a girl hopping around in her sleeping bag, too cold to get out of it. So unless you're going for that potato-sack race type look, I suggest you get this jacket.
A classic choice for women who need something warm and stylish.
Resting at the knee, this long cut creates an extra shield against freezing weather and delivers exceptional thermal warmth thanks to the 600 fill down insulation. The North Face Women's Metropolis Parka has snap-front closures on-top of its full-front zip to ward off gusts of wind; and an insulated, adjustable, snap-off hood to coincide with the variable conditions. Worn with a solid base layer, this parka can keep you warm in temperatures nearing single digits.

I ordered this jacket from Backcountry a few months ago. Shipping was fast. I wasn't sure which size to go with between M and L but went with the M and I'm glad I did. I am 155lbs and I'm 5'5''. It fits perfect on my frame. I am a busy Mom of 2 and needed something warm, but not heavy and this is perfect. It is comfortable, and light, warm and cozy in the rink but also not too hot. I live in Vancouver Canada where it is damp and rainy in the winter although it's not freezing this is wet and damp which can chill your bones. It's not a rain coat, but is water repellent in light rain or drizzle. It's also great I can wear it up on the ski hill or on dry but cold days. Love this jacket and highly recommend!
I love this coat! I am a Chicago commuter with a walk to my office from Union Station, and this coat blocks out that wicked wind and cold so well. Thanks for the great prices and unbeatable customer service, BC! My first coat order had a broken zipper, but cs sent me a free UPS shipping label, and once they saw it had been activated, they sent me a replacement coat -- didn't have to wait for their receipt and stock (like most online stores), which can take weeks.
Admittedly, I'm from Florida, so I know little about "down jackets." When I was told to purchase a down parka for a December trip to the Czech republic, I googled "purple down jackets" and found this one. After some initial sticker shock, even though it was on sale, I ordered it. When it arrived, I saw the bag sitting on the porch and thought "surely this can't be the warm and cozy down jacket I was expecting." To my dismay, it was! It was very thin, not at all what I was expecting. It is a beautiful color, but even though I bought it on sale I didn't think it was worth the price to keep it. I have had to continue my search elsewhere...
Love the fit, the style, the warmth. Dissapointed with the not-perfect sometimes stubborn zipper. Also hate that some of the large feathers are already working their way out and leaving tiny holes
I have bought two metropolis parkas by The North Face. One parka I purchased about 4 years ago and another 2 months ago on sale from Backcountry. The one I bought 4 years ago is far superior. It is soft, lightweight, and very warm, has more fill, and never loses any feathers. The zipper with a pull tag and snaps are made with quality metal. My new parka, the stitching is rough, the coat is still lightweight, but not quite as warm, and loses feathers. The zipper sticks because the mechanism does not quite fit correctly.
