I bought this coat for my teen and he loves it! He said it's light weight (Not bulky) but warm. He loves the jacket so much he wants the Nuptse vest too!

I bought this jacket for my boyfriend after he had fought me for years on converting to a "puffy" coat for the harsh New England winters. Last year, I bought him a lighter weight down coat from a local "sale" store that doesn't allow returns, but at $20.00 for the coat, I figured what the heck! While he still loves that coat, he definitely needed something warmer and more durable for shoveling snow and dealing with the ridiculous cold we experience in New England. I bought him this coat for Christmas this year, and he has yet to take it off. Super cozy, very warm, and not bulky at all. He's 6'5, 240 lbs, so I ordered him an XL and it fits perfectly. It doesn't "swallow him up" like the old school down coats do, and he has plenty of room to wear a hoody under it. Maybe next year, Santa will bring me the long down coat!

It was around 30F in San Jose in the morning. I am happy that I got this one. It kept me warm when I went out in the morning to take a walk. Also during the day and in the evening I can wear it - this jacket just looks great! It is very light, puts no burden on me.

Great Deal!! can't complain at all! The jacket seems to be very warm, especially for a midwestern like me. Highly recommneded for anyone looking for a warm coat

I bought this coat for my boyfriend who is hard to fit. He's very muscular, with a broad back and and a bit of a tummy. To his surprise, the coat fits perfectly (5'9" 230 pounds). He loves the lightweight feel of this coat...it keeps him very warm without having to add any layers. The coat looks great on him and surprisingly isn't so bulky that it makes him bigger than he is (it probably helps that I got the coat in black). He's only been wearing the coat for a couple of weeks, but it does seem very durable (which is my experience with North Face -- both my 2 1/2 year old and I have North Face down coats). He also likes the waist and wrist adjustments on the coat. His only complaint is the lack of internal pockets on this coat.
