Great coat. Bought this for my wife and she loves it. I bought this for Christmas and I purchased a Medium. After receiving it, I thought it might be too small, so I called up Zappos and explained. they shipped another out and I received it the very next day. By the way, the first one I received was free 1 day shipping, the second one was free 1 day shipping. Now, I've got both coats. Anyway I showed it to my wife and she chose to keep the medium. Called Zappos, canceled the return of the medium and wanted to return the Large. I received a free shipping label in 2 minutes, printed, and labeled the box and off it was. I received an email a few days later saying Zappos received it and the return was processed. This isn't my first experience with Zappos. Greatest customer service. They all speak English and have a sense of humor! The only customer service that is comparable is LL Bean, but they don't offer free next day air shipping like Zappos.Read more » « Show less January 16, 2011 by Nash

I was very excited for this jacket given the glowing reviews...unfortunately, it didn't stand up to my expectations. I want it to wear to and from work, and I don't want to have to put on many layers for it to keep me warm. It's very light and comfortable to move around in, so I tried this jacket outside for about 15 minutes with a thin long sleeve sweater underneath. It was 15 degrees, with 8 mph wind and 20 mph wind gust. (pretty standard winter day in MN, nowhere near the coldest) At first it was nice and warm, but after about 5 min, I noticed cold spots in the jacket on my chest, shoulders, and arms. The way the down is stitched in large rings around the jacket allows it to shift, leaving some spots virtually uninsulated. Also the outer shell doesn't seem very windproof when the wind picks up. I have another Northface ski jacket with their heatseeker insulation (was pricey) that keeps me toasty warm in even colder conditions, but doesn't have the length I want. I expected much more for the price of this jacket. If you want a jacket for 25 degree weather with little wind, I think this jacket will be great. However, if you are looking for something to keep you warm with one layer in single digit/subzero temps with double digit wind speeds, I would try something else. As far as size, it seems to run a little small, my other north face items are larges, and I needed an XL in this jacket. I would size up. As with all down jackets, its a bit puffy, but it looks fairly sleek with the down puffs on the inside, and the back elastic makes a nice hourglass shape.Read more » « Show less November 27, 2012 by Kari

Love this jacket! I live in NY where the winters can be very cold, windy and wet and this baby keeps me very warm and dry. Very nice fit, color and overall design. I recommend anyone who likes staying warm, dry and toasty get one! Also difficult to puncture and tear - a quality a klutz like me appreciates very much!

This coat is exactly what I was hoping for. Extremely warm and cozy but not a giant puff ball. I ordered the size medium. I am 120 pounds, 5'5". I normally wear a 2-4 in clothing, but I can't stand tight shoulders in coats. After reading reviews, I decided a medium was a safe bet and it was. There is room for a sweater or sweatshirt under it, which is usually what I'm wearing if it's cold enough for a coat like this. I love how it tucks in at the waist -- I think more than it looks like in the photo.

Buy this coat! I live in North Dakota and experience all kinds of "winter fun" each year. Cold. Wind. Subzero temps. You name it. I purchased this coat earlier this month, November 2011, and have worn it a few times in cold weather (10-30 degrees). Couldn't be happier! I have to take my coat off when I go inside a business. I sweat too much. That's how warm it is! The style is awesome. I actually purchased it in a small last winter, but had to return it because the fit was still a bit too loose. The XS was then out of stock, so I had to patiently wait until this year to buy it again. I am 5'4" and wear a 0 or a 2 in pants and a small or XS in tops. The XS in TNF Arctic Parka fits me perfect. It is fitted enough to keep me looking sleek, yet I can still wear a sweater or sweatshirt underneath it for extra warmth. I also love the raglan sleeve styling - accommodates my broad shoulders perfectly. Whoever designed this coat deserves a raise! There's no velcro to collect lint. The pockets are angled perfectly. The two lower pockets are lined on the palm-side in a smooth material and on the top of the hand in a soft material. So even if you're not wearing gloves, your hands are still warm and comfortable in the pockets. There are also 2 other pockets on the chest area and even a hidden pocket on the inside of the coat. I discovered that pocket about a week after I had the coat - sweet! If you are having reservations, at least buy the coat and try it. To me, this coat has everything. It's super warm, looks great and is from a fantastic brand. You can't go wrong!

I was so happy to be buying a really warm coat this winter. When I tried this on in my regular size, the arm holes were too small. It was grabbing under my armpits. Why would North Face cut a winter coat like this, that is probably the spot where you would want it roomy to maneuver your arms about. I don't have fat arms either! Very disappointed.
