User Review: The North Face Women's Nuptse Jacket
Price Paid: $184
Currently on my fourth one in about nine years. Great jacket, especially during cold weather, but not at all waterproof. Outer nylon fabric is a little thin and tends to tear easily although I am very hard on my jackets. So long as the tear is fixed quickly, you don't lose too much of the down filling.
My last one got left outside with some shed junk for what must be nearly two and a half years. The down filling has gone lumpy and has probably started to rot. The nylon shell has faded but doesn't seem to have rotted in any way even though it's so thin.
In all, a great warm jacket that compacts so well. Not waterproof and a thin shell that may tear with alot use.
