The North Face Thermoball Triclimate Insulated Hooded Jacket - Men's

Year-round protection and comfort.

The North Face Men's Thermoball Triclimate Insulated Jacket pairs a protective shell with removable insulator for four-season versatility. Whether you're summer backpacking in rainy conditions, hiking in shoulder season temperatures, or braving winter's snowy days, this versatile offering from The North Face will keep your dry, warm, and comfortable. The shell is made with the same waterproof, breathable DryVent membrane that The North Face's ski shells have, so you know you can rely on it whenever wet weather threatens the sky.

The removable liner features Primaloft's most innovative insulation—Thermoball's synthetic insulation mimics down to give you a lofty feel and will stay warm when wet. This jacket also features zippers under each arm for ample ventilation. Adjustments at the hood, hem, and cuffs secure the fit, and the zippered chest pocket features a media port so you can listen to music comfortably.

Great Cold Weather Jacket

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

Bought this jacket for my brother for his birthday and he has had nothing but rave reviews. When the temperatures have dropped into the 20's this winter, he's said it keeps him and toasty. Fits great, and I like all the color options. Another north face win!

good stretch & thermoball combo a winner

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs large

Got this as a Xmas present and have used in Japan skiing and hiking. The outer shell fabric felt thin and was worried about waterproof capabilities, but has been used on days when its been puking snow and no issues with water penetration. The thermoball insulation jacket is a great addition. Have taken it out and using with other jackets as key layer. One complaint...pls put internal chest pocket, or liner pocket into the chest area for phone or music player...the jacket has this feature, but its lost when using the thermoball liner independently or with other gear.
Fits a little large and the stretch in the fabric gives plenty of movements..and there is ample room to layer...haven't used the shell on a standalone basis yet...but can imagine it will be quite a versatile jacket for hiking in summer/spring. The whole jacket (including liner) packs down to nothing. Combined with being very light, it will become a travel accessory for sure!

Excellent coat in sub zero conditions

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

Bought three of these coats for my husband, son and the woman's version for myself. We were initially a little worried about whether they would keep us warm skiing (we are from Louisiana...so not typically use to cold conditions). The coats did not disappoint. Our core never got cold. Highly recommend if you don't want a bulky & puffy looking ski coat!!!

Pricey-Light- Regular sized hood - Warm

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

Cons:
I personally think that this jacket is a little pricey. It's pretty light, doesn't have interior pockets and the pockets aren't lined. The thermoball is thin also.

Pros:
Overall, the jacket looks pretty good! Doesn't feel like a winter jacket. But all I need is to get to work and for daily casual wear. So this jacket is great for me.
I'm use to wearing a hoodie or a zip-up cardigan underneath. So a baselayer with this jacket is a great combination. The fit is definitely relaxed so medium worked out great.

A major plus is that the hood isn't ridiculously large! I returned my last jacket because the hood came down to my chin!

And finally, I have to say that the customer service at backcountry.com has been great!!!! They were very helpful with the return and purchasing process.

Not as warm as I imagined

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: Large

Shell technology is superior for stopping wind and rain. Thermoball inner jacket sufficiently warm if user is generating some body heat to about 30 degrees. The thermoball technology has its warmth limits and is paper thin in this jacket. For harsher conditions and temperatures below 30 degrees (think Vermont skiing in January) I have found that slipping a 800 fill down jacket underneath as additional base layer makes the jacket downright blizzard proof. As mentioned by other reviewers, the pockets aren't lined so if you are using jacket for something less than skiing, like walking your dog, you still need gloves.

Good, but not great

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Large

Pros: Warm for size and weight, North Face quality, Not break the bank expensive
Cons: The velcro snaps at the wrist SUCK, the DWR is questionable, COLD HANDS because there is no liner in the front pockets

I received this jacket in fusebox grey, in a large. It looks much darker on the website, in real life it looks like every other North Face grey I have ever had. I took it out of the packaging and was immediately impressed with the weather tight seams and zippers, and the fact that this jacket isn't "crinkly" despite being thin and primarily synthetic. It looks like a higher end technical jacket. Good job NF.

I put the jacket on and was very happy with the fit. I am tall and skinny, and this jacket is the right size and length for my body type. I did use the front pocket pull strings to tighten the lower half of the jacket up, because it was letting in too much cold air.

Since receiving the jacket, I have been lucky enough to get freezing rain, hail, and snow. I have only worn this jacket without another outer layer underneath, just t shirts and flannels. In all of these conditions, including wind, this jacket excels. It keeps me dry, warm, and comfortable. Except for my hands. The wrist snaps are TERRIBLE. You have to play with the velcro, repeatedly, in order to get it to stick, and it never really sticks together tight enough for my liking. The rest of the jacket looks and feels expensive. This feels really, really cheap, as if it was simply an afterthought. The front pockets have no liner! I was shocked that on a jacket that retailed for $300 they overlooked that. I decided to try out the jacket anyway, thinking it couldn't be that bad. It is that bad. Because the pockets are in front of the inner jacket, you have no additional wind protection or warmth. All though the jacket itself doesn't let wind in, it makes the shell really cold, and that in turn, makes your hands really cold. I needed a good pair of gloves anyway, but it is unfortunate that I have to buy them because of this jacket.

This DWR makes me nervous. While it does a great job repelling big droplets, in the mist or very light rain however, water seems to stick. I have only worn the jacket in the rain three times. The first two times were in heavy rain for more than 15 minutes at a time with no problems. The third time was mist for about 20 minutes at a time, and when I got in my car, I noticed very small 'wet' spots on the jacket, around my front pockets. Regardless of the droplet size, I would assume it should bead right off because it was new. I am going to apply a ton of my own waterproofing because I don't want to risk it in the future if I need to stay dry, but before I do so I am going to wear it in the rain again just to be sure.

This jacket retails for $300 new. Had I paid $300, I would be upset and likely attempted to return the jacket. But, because Backcountry has great sales, I got it on sale and got free 2 day shipping (How to create a loyal customer). If you need a shell for skiing or snowboarding or just cold weather, consider this jacket. It has a great range of movement and I am more than warm enough in 28-35 degree weather with just a t shirt on underneath. It keeps the wind out, and unless I got a lemon, it will keep you dry for a long time. The velcro at the wrists sucks, and the front pockets offer no warmth, so you have been warned.

Great shell, not super heavy

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

This is a thinner shell/insulated coat combo even with the liner zipped into the coat. It's perfect for skiing and > 20F days for the most part and isn't super heavy.

The liner is actually not quite as shiny, metallic and cheap looking as the online pic's. The liner material is more like an older North Face Redpoint insulated jacket. Also, if you have an older insulated coat from North Face, it will fit and zip into this shell. My old Redpoint which is a little heavier than this liner zipped right into the coat. Nice design.

Adjustable hood is solid too. Fits GIRO (Large size) helmet but can be adjusted so you don't have a wind sail on top of your head if you're not wearing a helmet.

Size Medium fits perfect. 5'11", 175lbs athletic build.

killed it

    i own one of these and i love it. i sent my brother down to chile with one and he says he never takes it off.

    Solid jacket

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    Very sleek looking jacket. Simple and sweet. The thermoball layer inside is a bit thin. It's warm enough on its own for those 40+ degrees days but any colder during heart of winter I'd strongly suggest another base layer jacket underneath to ensure warmth. No complaints though.

    Light & Thin

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Small

    Light and comfortable.
    Can improve the cutting, the chest is so tight and the waist is too loose.

    Short sleeves

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: XL

    I bought an XL. A great coat. Warm and comfortable. Only thing that I dislike about it is the sleeve length. The base layer of the coat is about 2" longer than the outside layer. The base layer is perfect length when I have my arms stretched out, but the top layer is too short, which leaves the base layer showing quite a bit. It almost seems like my top layer is a L while my base layer is XL.

    Versatile!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium

    I've worn this now in many different settings and it has yet to disappoint. From the 3rd coldest NFL game in history (Vikes/Seahawks) wearing both layers and then some to a 3 mile run in the high 30's wearing just the liner.
    Awesome Jacket.

    thin, but very warm

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Size Bought: medium

    I live in Green Bay, Wisconsin, and when the coat first arrived I was apprehensive about how thin it was. Being this thin cannot possibly keep me warm I thought.

    My mind changed when I wore this jacket while snowblowing. The temp at the time was 21 deg F, with a windchill of 6 deg F. Underneath the coat I was wearing a t-shirt, and a long sleeve t-shirt, two very thin materials. I was not cold at all in the 50+ minutes I was outside.

    One thing about the coat I do not like is the pockets. They are not lined, so in cold weather, you will need gloves as the pockets will not keep your hands warm.

    my yuppie go out jacket

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Size Bought: xl

    so warm and cozy no matter were you are

    Great Jacket

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: True to size

    I purchased this as a gift for my brother, overall i think the design is great and it looks good. The Jacket and Thermoball combo does great for warmth but can easily be used in varying temperatures with the option to remove the inside liner. Only gripe that i have heard is the thermoball liner not quite being on par with the thermoball jackets that TNF sells separately, understandable for the price point but at the same time would be nice for the quality to stretch across all their products.

    This is NOT a winter jacket

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: XL

    If your looking for a winter jacket for casual wear this is not the jacket. I live in Central New York, with an average winter temperature of 11*F and an average snowfall of 90" . For and physically demanding activity this jacket would probably work. But for low activity or causal wear when the temperature drops below 30 degrees I don't believe this jacket will be effective. The thremoball liner is not a true thremoball.

    LIGHT!

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: small

    I couldn't believe how light this was when I got it. The thermoball zip out layer is the ideal fall and mild winter jacket and then the shell has worked as a rain shell these past couple days. Probably the most versatile jacket I have found. Got the small in this and it fits well.
