I had purchased the North face jacket that was the model under this that sells for 150.00
This is a MUCH nicer piece . The jacket is so light you really can't feel the weight . Its also primaloft ONE so its warmest wet or dry.
It does repel water very well. I would not try and wear this as a shell though is thats your intention . The hood is very soft and it does not get in the way under a shell at all. The water bottle pocket inside is very deep . I got a size large it fits nice for me i weigh 165 lbs. This is my secinf summit series piece and i will not buy anything else from face but this ! the quality is worth the 50 price increase. If you looking for a SUPER light and VERY warm layering piece this is the best I have comes across. The inner color of the jacket REALLY pops . I got the blue with red liner .
I bought this jacket for my 13 year old son, who would rather wear no coat than a bulky coat, and he loves it. It is very warm but not at all puffy or stiff. It folds into its chest pocket with fairly little effort, and can easily fit into his backpack when he's not wearing it. He's about 5'6" and 165lbs, a broad-shouldered kid, and the large fits well with room for layers. His only complaint is that the zipper can be a bit finicky, but it usually zips after a couple of tries. Otherwise, this is a great jacket, and we are both very happy with it.
This is a great piece. I found it on super sale last year and had to snag it. Very comfortable, warm. Works well as a stand alone piece in milder temperatures, has a DWR coating which works well for the light rain if you by chance get caught. Plenty of pockets, the interior security pocket doubles as a stuff pocket, can compress this jacket down to a small package. Overall a great piece, works well as a heavy mid later under a shell for those brutally cold days, or use it as a stand alone piece for those 30-40 degree days.
I put one of these on the scales and it came in around 590 grams, about 150g less than the claimed weight. Can't say I'm surprised though, North Face products almost never weigh close to the listed weights -- often the listed weight is higher as in this case!
Whoever at North Face is responsible for the weighing of garments and the inputting of weight data onto the websites and catalogs needs to be re-trained or fired. Seriously, a 5 year old could do the job more accurately.
Neat jacket btw. Similar to an Atom SV.
The North Face Redpoint Optimus Insulated Jacket is a perfect jacket for temperatures between 50 to about 15 degrees Fahrenheit. It is so light and comfortable that you can forget you're wearing it until you're sitting inside and getting seriously hot.
Quality is good and although I read some reviews where people were complaining about the zippers, I've had no issues. It packs up nicely and it repels drizzle without a problem.
Overall this is probably the best purchase I've made in a while. The versatility of this jacket is unbeatable.
I love this jacket. I bought it oversized for a belay jacket and its pretty warm for its weight. I just took it for an overnight on Mt Washington and although we had fairly good weather I had this jacket on at camp in the evening around 10 - 15 degrees with a base layer and north face fleece. I was toasty. Getting the zipper head into the double zipper is a pain sometimes but it would never stop me from bringing this jacket on trips with me.
I've just been loving how thin and warm this jacket is. It's not perfect because it's not waterproof, though I haven't tested it out fully. I'm just stoked that I don't have to wear a scarf with it and sometimes not a hat because the hood covers and keeps my head warm and the collar, when zipped up, keeps my neck warm. I've been looking for something warm and thin for a while and, leave it to TNF, they know what they're doing.
Soooooo warm, always searched for a jacket that was warm enough for a large range of temps. This keep me warm below freezing and doesnt overheat me at 40-50, its also so light for its warmth due to its primaloft one filling. And it also is a stylin jacket so u can get that swag you know youve been looking for.
Nice jacket, with unexpected detailing in the tailoring of the cuffs. Good fit for layering and warm by itself down to about 32 degrees F. It is true to size, I am an XL and fits nicely even with a layer of fleece underneath.
I got this jacket for X-Mas. What a great jacket! Soft, comfortable, I hardly know I have it on. I find that it breaths very well. I am never really hot in it. Inside or outside, I am always comfortable.
I had some issues with some TNF products in the past and the way TNF handles their warranties even though they clearly agreed the pieces were known to have had problems. This was the last piece I purchased of theirs.
I have to say it has been a decent piece. I would recommend to anyone purchasing TNF gear to buy it through a site like Backcountry or REI. When it fails you can have their warranty cover what TNF won't.
