To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I was under the impression that with women's clothing a XL and an 1X are two completely different sizes. I ordered a 1x because of my midsection and north face jackets tend to be tight in the waistline and my hips.
A 1x is supposed to be more "plus size" which is why I ordered it.
Upon trying on the jacket I noticed that the tag says "XL" and not "1x" Not sure if I was sent the wrong size or if the advertisement is wrong. Otherwise the jacket fits fine. I would have liked the hip area to have a bit more room and for it to cover my butt a little longer but I honestly like the jacket a lot but the sizing confuses me?
I bought this jacket for my trip to Iceland where I needed something windproof and waterproof for my hiking trips. The jacket completely satisfied both requirements. I typically wear size S-M in clothes, so I bought M to have some space for couple layers. It was very comfortable, roomy but not bulky. It is not insulated, but has mesh lining that gives moving flexibility. I recommend it to everyone who wants a good quality product from a well known company. Thank you, North Face.
I wore this jacket the first day hiking in 55 degree or so weather and although we were walking at a good pace, I was a bit chilled. The second day I changed to a long-sleeved shirt and fleece vest to wear underneath -- much better for warmth! Beautiful jacket, perfect fit, nice style, and rain proof. I was hesitant of a permanently attached hood because those sometimes bother my neck, but this hood was great -- didn't even know it was there. It stayed on my head when it rained, but I could still see well - wasn't too big or hang over my head too much. Great jacket. Looking forward to wearing it for many years.
This was much nicer than expected. Reviews were mixed, so I wasn’t sure if I’d love it. The collar is thicker and warmer and lightly fleece lined. The hood is perfect without being too big. The elastic wrists are better than the velcro on my Columbia wind breaker. Always a fan of TNF.
I bought this for my wife for the winter for her pool route. Well she didn’t wear it the first month cause it wasn’t cold then first time she wears it zipper breaks. Over 30 days! We can’t return it so out of luck. Skip this brand. For over 80$ and The North face name I expected a lot more.
An xs was exactly the right fit and comfortable. As expected it is a perfect wind breaker and very very warm against harsh weather. The length is feminine at the hip unlike the other windbreaker jackets that come down to mid buttocks.
