The North Face Women's Catalyst Jacket

Since the first American ascent of Everest in 1963 the down parka has been an integral part of performance winterwear. The North Face Women's Catalyst Jacket is the pinnacle of that success in an ultralight, hooded mid-layer for mountaineering assaults and cold weather pursuits. Wrapping its luxurious 800-fill goose down fill in durable water repellent (DWR) finished 100% ripstop nylon Pertex Quantum fabric, this puffy down jacket is toasty warm and highly compressible when packed. Stashing in a stowable left hand pocket, this mid-layer jacket features two hand pockets for warming digits, and elastic-bound cuffs with a hem cinchcord for a athletic fit and sealing the wind gaps. Topped with an attached, fully adjustable insulated hood, this jacket gets down right cozy when snugging it up in lock down against the elements. Part of the Summit Series collection and a perennial favorite of The North Face athletes, the Women's Catalyst Jacket equally at home during a cross-town foray as on a first ascent/descent.

Super Warm Lightweight Jacket
This jacket was a bit different in color when I got it in person (thought it was periwinkle but it's more of a dark blue purple) and a little shorter in the front and arms than I expected (I am long waisted and have longer arms), but it is super lightweight and warm! I can't believe how warm it is especially in Minnesota below zero winters. I would definitely recommend this jacket to anyone in a super cold weather climate who is active and on the go and needs something not so constricting. My mittens make up for the shorter arms and the fact the jacket is so warm, I'm able to overlook the fact it's a littler shorter than I wanted. Overall GREAT JACKET!

Great Jacket!
This jacket is soooo warm and light. The fit is perfect - comfortable and shapely. It is weather resistant not waterproof but it is overall a great winter jacket.

Lightweight warm jacket
I really like TNF Catalyst Jacket. It's extremely lightweight, making it an ideal outerwear for moderate-high level outdoor activity. The hem cinchcord is very effective in blocking out wind, keeping you warm in cool weather. I am 5'4, 100lbs and the XS fits perfectly. The jacket runs short and the arm area is quite puffy. I wish the arm area was more slender and feminine. I highly recommend the jacket, though.

Great jacket, I bought 2
I love this jacket. I originally bought it for a trip to Antarctica, and it was sooooo warm. I felt like I was wrapped in a nice, warm blanket my whole trip. Ok, it was summer in Antarctica, but still. I liked the jacket so much, I bought another one in a different color. I was worried about ordering it online because I hadn't tried it on, but when my Altrec package arrived, I was happy to find it was a perfect fit (I am 5'6" 115#). I had bought a Patagonia down jacket before trying this one, then I returned the Patagonia. I prefer the fit and comfort of this one, even if the Patagonia looks a little more stylish.
