The North Face Women's Potosi Jacket
Named in honor of Potosi, Bolivia, one of the highest cities in the world sitting at 13,420 ft, this winter jacket will keep you warm and dry as you make strenuous alpine ascents. New body-mapping design puts insulation where you need it and reduces bulk to give you maximum mobility. An exterior shell made from durable HyVent Alpha fabric is waterproof and breathable and sits atop 40 g PrimaLoft One insulation for lightweight, hydrophobic warmth. A 2-way full zip front accommodates your climbing harness and 2 front pockets are accessible with your pack on. Pit zips are there to vent heat if you start to warm up while an adjustable helmet-compatible hood and Velcro cuffs cinch down to block out wind, rain and snow. If your base camp is higher than most people will ever climb, you'll want The North Face Potosi Jacket for women when you leave camp for that final push to the summit.

I grew up in the south and have a hard time wearing bulky coats. To me, a bulky coat is limiting and restrictive. I would rather stay inside than bundle up. I bought this coat to wear as an every day coat on walks, taking my kids to the park, to football games, etc. I love it. I decided to splurge on this jacket for myself because it was thin and warm. Features that I love: the coat isn't bulky yet very warm, water resistant, drawstring at the waist doesn't let cold air in, I'm 5"3/118pounds and this coat length(size small) is long enough to cover half of my butt, the sleeves are long but I used the velcro at cuffs and that secures it perfectly at my wrists. The hood will tighten to completely block wind/rain from the top and all sides of the head. I'm going skiing soon and can't wait to try out all the features. The only drawbacks is that it takes a little work to start fastening the zipper to zip it up and that the pockets are higher on the front of the jacket and it takes a little getting use to.
