Rating: rated 0.5 of 5 stars
Price Paid: $350

Such a disappointment. The North Face Triple C is for early autumn or spring—not for winter in Finland.

"A two-way front centre zip with a snap down closure seals out freezing temperatures and wild wintry weather"—how dare you, North Face? Do you know what the wild wintry weather is? Misleading advertising. Returning jacket tomorrow.

I had heard good things about this down coat and was so excited when i got it last nite. I own several Eddie Bauer long coats and they are very warm in below zero weather. I thought i would get this one because it was a little bit longer than my other coats.

Well today in chicago is 4 degrees so I decided to wear my brand new coat. Well so far the only warm part of my body are my feet because I'm wearing Uggs. I felt like I was wearing a spring jacket.

I had never been so cold in my life.

I am utterly disappointed with this coat. I live in Chicago and it is simply not warm enough for the winters here. It's also not wind proof.

I wrote to North Face at the end of last winter about my useless coat and asked for my money back or a Warner coat and they never wrote back. This coat is definitely a waist of money. I gave it a half star because it is waterproof.

Rating: rated 4 of 5 stars
Fill: 700

I got this jacket because I had to go back to school in Ohio and I knew the winters would be rough. I agree, that the buttons should go all the way down, otherwise, it's no better than the shorter 600 fill one I currently use. However, I did have buttons put in that button it all the way down and that solved everything. I'm still not sure if the arms are warm enough though. I can feel the wind on them sometimes, but I have to say that compared to my other 600 fill one that's knee length, it is a lot warmer, but it's bulky!

Rating: rated 5 of 5 stars

For the first time in five years I was warm and comfortable during a winter in Vienna, Austria, the second "Windy City." Warmth was more than adequate, even in -15°C weather. Only minor drawback is that since that it's not rain resistant. Also, since I'm short (5'3), the bottom of the coat (a Medium) sometimes got dirty from sludgy snow and salt. I also reccommend hiking the jacket up when you get into the car (in winter) so that the bottom of the jacket doesn't get dirty in the back!

I bought this coat to help me endure the long, long Chicago winters and while it's warm its design could use some retooling. The buttons don't go all the way down the coat, so as I walk the coat blows open and lets cold air rush in on my legs. The purpose of a full-length coat is to protect the legs, but since the bottom of the coat ultimately exposes my legs I'd have to say I'm disappointed. If this design flaw were to be fixed I wouldn't have one complaint!

Love it! Super stylish, very warm and incredibly elegant.

Love it! Super stylish, very warm and incredibly elegant. Finally I can wear a skirt when it is minus 40o Celcius outside. They are selling like hot cakes up here in Montreal. In two weeks, almost all stores' entire stock of this model was gone! Got my hands on the last "SMALL" and it was ONLY AUGUST (and 30o Celcius outside still)!!! This jacket is A HIT by North Face. A long down filled coat that actually looks feminine on because it is fitted at the waist! THANK YOU NORTH FACE!

So this is a women's coat - but as I guy I thought it would look good so bought one. I love it - I've had a couple of odd looks wearing it out - but quite a few complements as well. It's not very fitted so works fine and is really warm. So guys don't be shy and TNF - let's see some long down coats for men - maybe with a fur trim hood as well.

I love the North Face and especially this jacket! This jacket is so warm and actually has a feminine silhouette. I own the NF Nuptse Jacket and vest which are warm but don't have the great lines that this jacket has. I love the removable hood and the length.

Cons: Wish the NF had the option for a fur-lined hood for this jacket, like some of their other styles.

Great jacket for nordic city activities such as waiting for the bus on freezing mornings/evenings, walking the dog. If you are a grade-school teacher, perfect for watching the kids during their recreation breaks.
