I just spent a week dogsledding/cross-country skiing in the Boundary Waters of Minnesota, and this jacket was put on every time it got truly cold.

This jacket instantly warms you, and I highly recommend it. It is also very good for stuffing into your sleeping bag at night for extra warmth.

I purchased this jacket yesterday and I love it. It keeps me really warm and it is so light I barely notice I'm wearing it. I recommend getting this if you want a light warm jacket.

The only sh**ty part is no inside pocket, but that isn't that much of a problem.

If you live anywhere near the Canadian border, you know that the geese that used to head south in the winter now just stay put. Apparently cold and slush doesn't bother them anymore. And like the geese, you won't need to use frequent flier miles in the dead of winter with The North Face's Men's Thunder Down Jacket. Down is known for its warmth, and the Thunder features 800-fill -- the highest quality and count available. What sets this jacket apart from other 800-fill jackets is that the feathers themselves were given a waterproof treatment. Even if you're caught in slush and drizzle, this prevents the down from clumping into wet wads. Dry down improves the jacket's insulating performance. As an insulating layer, this jacket provides a high warmth-to-weight ratio, so you can fight off the cold without breaking your back mile after mile. The entire jackets fits into its own hand pocket to keep on hand as an emergency layer. It's finished with two secure-zip hand pockets, elastic binding at cuffs, and a cinch cord at the hem.
