The North Face Women's Gimme More Down Jacket
Built tougher than most down-filled ski jackets and parkas, The North Face Gimme More Down Jacket for women is a durable and waterproof jacket ideally suited for female snowboarders. The concern associated with many other down ski jackets is the outer fabric. Compare the Gimme More Down Jacket with other down outerwear and you'll find that most have downproof exterior fabrics, but these materials are rarely waterproof and reinforced for abrasive surfaces like frozen hardpack. The Women's Gimme More Down delivers on full weatherproof protection and a tough twill exterior face. The sleeves and torso feature quality 600-fill while the fixed, helmet-compatible hood has a lighter 60g Heatseeker synthetic insulation. The Heatseeker inside the hood allows you to leave the hood off without worrying about water and snow seeping into the hood lining and possibly ruining any down insulation. Other thoughtful components include a Recco avalanche rescue reflector, mesh-lined underarm zip-vents and a wrist accessory pocket with attached goggle wipe. When sized properly, the hem of the Gimme More Down hits about mid-thigh, so it's perfect for snowboarders seeking a little more coverage.

This coat is phenomenal! I usually wear a small in Northface, I ordered this in an extra small and have a very comfortable fit. Incredible warm and comfortable, perfect for weather in upstate NY!

Verg Good For Mountains
Very Nice Jacket, fits a little loose in midsection although i did order xl for length, overall fits great! Very warm. Puffy but not to puffy, just right for a down jacket. Long as well, good for someone like me....tall with height in midsection.

Really warm and waterproof jacket, perfect for snowboarding. A little stiff for everyday wear (not soft and supple like a puffy down), but the wind/waterproofing is good. The sleeves are a bit long and overall the fit is fairly loose. The one "con" is the zippers on the sleeves--there's no way to keep them closed so they unzip a little all the time, and the pulls flap around everywhere which is a bit annoying.

fits true to size. Very warm, love all the pockets. Is longer than normal ski jacket, but I liked that it's just one jacket not a shell+ fleece.
