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 .

This was the very first jacket I bought myself in college fall of 2003. It's held up remarkably well considering its 10 years old. I only wear it with a t shirt as a around town jacket. Its plenty warm as I typically wear it down to the mid 20's before I pic a new jacket. At 5' 10" 240 the large provides an athletic fit 49" chest 36 waist lets the jacket fall just below my belt. The synthetic down lays flat and doesn't give the puffy look of real down. wind proof and a decent amount of water resistance should keep this jacket in my closet for another 10 years.

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.

This jacket is awesome, I bought it intending to use it as my non-ski winter jacket and it has served its purpose. I bought this while I was in college hoping it would be warm enough that I would not need to wear many layers when walking to class and then sitting inside a hot lecture hall and it did exactly that. Often times I wear nothing but a T-shirt underneath this jacket and I do not get cold at all. This jacket is also a great windbreaker and does not allow any wind in.

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.

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.

I have had this jacket for close to a decade and it is still going strong! warm, durable, and perfect for cool, wet conditions! I have used other synthetic hooded jackets over the years and I still grab this one out of the closet (actually, usually off my floor) for most of my adventures!

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.
