The North FaceKilowatt Thermoball Insulated Jacket - Men's

Best of both worlds.

Have your cake and eat it too with The North Face Men's Kilowatt Thermoball Insulated Jacket. This innovative jacket has a fleece body along with an insulated, weather-resistant panel at the chest, shoulders, and hood to give you a boost of warmth on cool-weather hikes.

ThermoBall insulation throughout the core, shoulders, and hood offers lightweight warmth and compressibility comparable to down, along with the wet-weather insulating performance of synthetics. This section of the jacket is also protected by durable and water-resistant Cordura to help it handle demanding outdoor adventures. Meanwhile, hardface fleece throughout the rest of the jacket provides a smooth, flexible feel, along with a bit of wind-resistance to keep chilly gusts from nipping at you.

real solid hybrid

    I like this jacket a ton, not too technical but still packs a puch, works well with my waterproof apex flex gtx parka not bulky and can be worn all day at the office, working out, on a hike etc...really great piece

    Nice jacket but awkward fit

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs small

    The shoulders are too narrow so we sized up but then it looked too boxy. Quality is awesome and style is great but fit just didn't work out. Typically he wears a medium (which we initially purchased) but the shoulders were too narrow then we ordered a large which fit on the shoulders but was too big everywhere else.

    Interesting Hybrid Jacket

    The North Face Kilowatt is a warm and comfortable cross between a traditional hoodie and one of their tech-ier thermoball products. VIsually you're either going to dig the contrasting panels or hate them. Personally I found the look to be pretty cool, and in the black color way the overall look is relatively understated.

    In the warmth department the jacket delivers and then some. It's more than up to task of casual mountain adventures and paired with a more robust shell it should make for an excellent insulating layer.

    Too warm for me

    I really wanted to like the North Face Kilowatt Thermoball jacket, but it just didn't fit what I was looking to do. I have other Thermoball products and love each of them. I was really looking for something with a bit more warmth than a hoodie, but not a full jacket. This one was still just a bit too warm for my needs. The jacket is well constructed, fits well, and definitely is warm through the core; just too much for a mid-weight jacket for me. If you want the warmth of a light puffy and the look of a fleece, it definitely fits the bill. I just have too many options in that category and opted to go with something lighter.

    Stylish and warm!

    This jacket is awesome, it keeps you very warm while still looking fashionable. The material on the arms is very soft, and so is the inside of the jacket. It fits pretty true to size. I am 6' and athletic build. A medium fits perfect!

    Super Casual

    This coat is light weight and perfect for short outdoor adventures! The pockets in the front make it feel like a hoodie but it has the warmth of a coat!
