    Comments about THE NORTH FACE Women's Thunder Jacket:

    I love the jacket, it's got a nice feel and great look. However, the fabric is very delicate feeling, and when I wear it I am always worried it may rip on something.
    It's warm, to a point, but not rain or windproof. Definitely not made for long periods outdoors, or sportswear.
    It's a great choice to wear to the airport in cold weather, when traveling to a warm place! (No one wants to lug a heavy coat to the tropics...) or over a dress or nice outfit when going somewhere special.

    I bought this coat last year, and have probably worn it twenty times, I am very careful about when I wear it, because it just feels so fragile. It is already looking tired! It loses down onto my clothing, some of the stitching is unraveling, and it just looks even thinner than it should. I am disappointed that I will probably have to retire it after this winter. It was not worth the very steep price.

        Would buy again

        By Sammie

        from Ma

        Comments about THE NORTH FACE Women's Thunder Jacket:

        I wear it everyday but not on days that are -0 degrees or rainy. It's very lightweight, comfortable and warm. I like how it's not overly puffy!!!! I would definitely buy this jacket again once mine are worn out. It's worth every pennie! I just wish it was waterproof so I won't have to wear another waterproof jacket on top. It kinda defeats the whole purpose of buying an expensive jacket buy can't wear it when it rains. Despite not being waterproof I love it and would repurchase again!!!!

        By Satisfied in MA

        from Beverly MA

        • Layers Nicely Under A She
        • Light Weght
        • Warm

        Cons

        • Buy a size larger
        • Feathers Tend To Shed
        • No inside pocket
        • Small At Armhole

        Best Uses

        • Everyday use
        • Very versitile

        Comments about THE NORTH FACE Women's Thunder Jacket:

        Very light weight, warm, soft hand feel, good movement, shaped waistline gives it a feminine fit, shoulders fit nice, not too bulky like the Patagonia equivalent. Armhole is a bit high making it feel tight. Would buy a size larger than you normally would. Wish there was an inside or outside chest pocket for cell phone. compresses nicely for convenient packing for travel. Layers nicely under the Northface hooded zip front shell for added protection when needed. Great for everyday use, or technical active use. Looks good too! Would love to see it in an array of fun colors! Would definitely recommend to others.

        Great Jacket

        By Allie

        from Portland ME

        Comments about THE NORTH FACE Women's Thunder Jacket:

        I am often a medium in northface jackets but I had to send this jacket back for a small. I am 5'4 130lbs. I got my second jacket and it fit perfect! It is a very warm jacket and is not overly puffy. I do wish the outside layer of the jacket was a little thicker, because instantly I was finding feathers on my shirt below. The arm length is nice and long and it is comfortable though. I bought it because it is extremely light to bring backpacking with me and it works great for that.

        Attractive, but...

        By Zena

        from Connecticut

        Verified Reviewer

        Pros

        • Attractive
        • Stylish

        Cons

        • Runs short
        • Ultra Lightweight

        Best Uses

        • For looks only
        • When Layering

        Comments about THE NORTH FACE Women's Thunder Jacket:

        Unfortunately, the attractive look of this product online did not convey on me. It was not advertised on a model, so I did not know that it ran so short (slightly above the waistline). Size 6 fit perfectly otherwise, but would need to go up one size because you definitely need to layer up during cold (and even just cool) temperatures. This jacket is ultra, ultra thin. My husband thought that I had ordered a bag of cotton balls. Suffice to say, I returned it. For 1/2 the price, I might have held on to it and used stylish layers to make it attractively wearable.

        Warm but down leaks everywhere

        By Outdoor enthusiast

        from NY

        Pros

        • Super light weight
        • Warm

        Cons

          Best Uses

            Comments about THE NORTH FACE Women's Thunder Jacket:

            This jacket is so warm and light weight. I was so excited to use it as an insulating layer under my ski shell. But the down is constantly leaking!! It's ridiculous. I think before the year is over, all the down in the jacket would've leaked out. I have had many other north face down jackets before and have never experienced this before! This is not ordinary leaking that you get every so often with a down jacket. It's constant. When I took off my jacket, I looked like I just came from a pillow fight.. I noticed that the leaking is much worse when I have a fleece as an underlayer. I am very disappointed. I think north face went really cheap on the shell lining of the jacket.
