Thank you for your feedback.
Great fit, he has long arms and a long torso so finding a good fit for a coat is hard for him.
It fits perfect true to size and is very warm in our single digit winter months.
Came just in time for Christmas and he says it is perfect for long nights on the jersey Shore parking cars.

    Size: X-LargeColor: Blac
    I got this jacket as a birthday gift from my parents last month. This also happened to be my first North Face product so I didn't know what to expect from it other than the fact that it's so darn popular with kids and adults alike. I tried it in the store before they bought it and I started sweating. It's that warm. LOL. I like that it's not bulky at all and can handle temperatures as low as 42 deg and can feel comfortable all the way up to the low 60s. Around the low 30s, I used a sweatshirt for added warmth. But It feels comfortable without any extra layer when you are doing something active outdoors in the cold. I recently tried using this as an extra layer to my new NF Apex Paradigm jacket when we hit temps below freezing. Because it's so light, it really didn't add too much bulk to the Paradigm jacket. For active outdoor activities in the cold weather with effective wind protection, I would really recommend this jacket. I hope it last a few years because I love the way it looks and feels. I actually bought the black/grey color combo which looks so much better than the plain black.

    The only thing I wished it had was a stowaway hood in case you get caught in the rain. I forgot to mention that this jacket and the Apex Paradigm are both weatherproof. It repels water like a full-time raincoat. Awesome!

    I picked up this jacket for use in San Francisco and the surrounding Bay Area (Lake Tahoe included). I use this jacket for everything. It is often cloudy/drizzly/cold in SF and this jacket deals with it all. I have not tried in heavy rain, but in drizzly conditions, the DWR treatment definitely makes small drops bead right off. It also has a nice fleece-like liner inside and keeps me really warm down to 40 degrees or so. In Tahoe, I have used this with a shirt or base layer, mid later fleece, and then this jacket. I don' get clod too easily but in temps 20's - 30's I felt great (with some gloves and a beanie of course). I have not tried it skiing yet because I snowboard and to be honest it wouldn't be quite large enough (I like baggier snowboard clothing). But I have seen people who wear softshells skiing all the time. I also use this when I go to work and want a jacket that dresses up nice. With slacks, nice shoes, and a button up it looks great. I am 6' and about 190 lbs (34 in arms) and the large fits perfect. The pockets are well designed as well. The soft shell is the new "do-everything" jacket; wind/water resistent but also maleable and comfy for wearing anywhere. I highly recommend this jacket.

    I am a licensed tour guide in Israel, whose topography produces a wide range of climatic conditions within a very small country. A couple of weeks ago I was guiding a tour from Oregon. We left our hotel on the Sea of Galilee in perfect 70 degree weather, but concluded the day on the Golan Heights in cold, windy, wintery weather…and was angry at myself that I had no jacket to protect myself from the 40s fahrenheit cold and driving rain. My bus driver lent me his fleece, but the wind went right through it. As soon as we got back to Jerusalem, I went to an outdoors/hiking supply store, where they carried this jacket in solid black or the black/grey combo. The latter was available only in large, and I'm a medium, so I asked them to order me a medium black/grey combo (way more beautiful!), which arrived within 2 days from another store location. Since its arrival, I have used this jacket over a full range of climatic conditions…from sunny days in the low 60s to cold days in the 40s with driving rain. I have found this jacket to feel ultra comfy over that full range of temps, never causing me to sweat on those 60 degree days, nor causing me to feel cold and underdressed on those colder and rainier days. No down feather winter jacket, or typical light shell could provide comfort over that full range of temperatures as this jacket does. Furthermore, it is fully windproof, as well as waterproof. I have to say that I am more than satisfied, and so glad that I purchased this jacket. My only regret is that I didn't purchase it when visiting home in the USA over the summer, where it sells for significantly less! As I write this, I am in the midst of the worse snow storm to hit Jerusalem in 50 years, with freezing tempts.Read more ›

    Size: X-LargeColor: Deep Water Blue Verified Purchase
    This jacket is counterfeit. The first clue was that the size fit more like a Medium than the XL we ordered. When another XL wasn't available to send us, we just went and bought an Apex Bionic Soft Shell Jacket (same color) at the North Face store. Comparing them side by side showed major differences. The zippers, closures, and material were all different. The size was clearly off just like we thought. The jacket we received was absolutely fake and not the real thing.

    Size: MColor: TNF Black Verified Purchase
    This is a great lightweight jacket. I am 5'11" and about 180lbs and I went with the medium size. The jacket has a great fit and stays close to the body. It is relatively warm and I feel comfortable in it at about 32F+ and if it is really cold you can put a heavier jacket over the top of it. The pockets are good sized and I can keep a pair of gloves and a hat in the bottom ones and a notebook in the napoleon pocket. I haven't been in any downpours yet put it seems to repel light precipitation very well.

    The only complaint I have is that the right side collar comes up RIGHT under my chin and pokes me so I have to fold it down.
