User Review: The North Face Men's Nuptse Jacket
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $99
Solid winter jacket.
- Good fit
- A bit bulky
- No baffled hood
I have used mine hard for 7 years and it is still going strong. I have had NONE of the zipper problems other reviewers have mentioned.
I have used it as an ice climbing jacket in very cold conditions, often using it as a belay jacket. In addition, I have been very comfortable using it and some fleece pants as a sleeping system when going ultralight. I am careful to keep it dry, and have not had the odor problems other folks have had.
TNF seemed to go through a quality control issue a few years back, so I would check one out before I bought it, but I have had such a good experience that I would get another one if I ever need to replace the one I have now.
