The North Face Aconcagua Jacket
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $120
This is a decent down jacket. Not a super warm jacket though. It's fine in the fall or spring temps but not cut out for winter. I go to Nevada a lot in the winter and this jacket is fine during the day when I'm working in the 40s-50s temperatures.
- Durable material
- Zipper is good
- Not warm enough for real cold weather
- I've had nicer material that felt softer on my Merrell jacket
It was okay for the money as I got it on sale. Full price I may have been a little let down. All it is lacking is a few more ounces of down to be a superior product. The zippers are nice. An interior pocket with zipper would have been nice or a chest pocket.

This is overall a good jacket. It fits good. I have used it down to about 35 degrees but it would be warmer with a Triclimate shell. It doesn't really shed down feathers. The outer material is not waterproof but it is rather thick compared to other down outer layers.
Overall, it is a pretty good, warm jacket.

A great jacket. I reside in north Florida and most people think I am crazy for owning a down jacket! But the other night when wind chills reached 24 degrees I was warm, toasty and not quite as crazy. The jacket fits well and seems to be constructed very well. I am glad I made the purchase.
