- Q & A
Awesome Light Weight Down
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: Large
First, based on the images this looks like a pretty substantial puffy. If you check the specs though, note that at 11oz this is definitely a light weight down jacket, best for mild weather or for using as a layer under a shell. That said, I bought it to use as a layer under my ski shell and so I love how light it is. It's thin and light enough that it doesn't feel bulky under my ski jacket, yet has enough to keep me warm. I wear a baselayer, this jacket, and a non-insulated shell and that keeps me comfy in pretty much any temps. If it get's insanely cold, like sub zero, I would definitely need to add something or switch to a beefier jacket.
I've also used it as an outer layer to keep me warm when traveling, and the super light weight and insanely compressible down makes it perfect for that. Packs down real small, and if you pull it out and toss it over a long-sleeve shirt/flannel it's very warm.
I would highly recommend if you're after a light weight down jacket. Fit is true to size, but if you aren't familiar with North Face "true to size" for them is a touch big. I'm 6' 195lbs and wear Large or XL depending on the brand, Large fits me perfect.
