THIS JACKET HAS COMPLETED MY LONG SEARCH FOR WARMTH, COMFORT, STYLE, AND ABILITY TO FOLD UP INTO ITSELF FOR TRAVELING.
I SAW A FRIEND WEARING ONE AND WENT HOME AND RESEARCHED AND EVEN THOUGH I USUALLY WOULD NOT SPEND OVER $50 FOR A JACKET, I TOOK A CHANCE THAT THIS WOULD BE MY ANSWER AND SOLUTION.
I HAVE NOW PURCHASED ONE FOR MY DAUGHTER AND HUSBAND AND THEY LOVE THEIRS. INSTEAD OF A DOZEN JACKETS HANGING AROUND ON HOOKS, WE NOW HAVE ONLY THREE!!

I bought this coat in early December and loved how warm, light-weight and comfortable it was! I received tons of compliments on it and told everyone how awesome it was. Plus, it was perfect for rainy Seattle winters! I was IN LOVE!
Unfortunately, before long, one of the rivets in the pocket came loose. Then the threads in the sleeves started to come loose. And finally the material on the hem of the sleeve started to pill, and actually ripped at the seam. I had to do a bit of a gut check and realize that this was a $220 coat that I have had for less than three months and that it was falling apart. I returned it to REI today, and now I see that it's not being manufactured anymore. Hopefully Northface is working on building a more durable version and it will be back next season. Save your money until then!

Comments about The North Face ThermoBall Hoodie - Women's:

This coat looked adorable on my 13 year-old but when she wore it to school on a 30 degree day she froze. I wish NF would have actual temperature ratings on their products like LL Bean to take out the guess work.

      Comments about The North Face ThermoBall Hoodie - Women's:

      I got this jacket for my daughter in college. She loves it so much and now her roommate is purchasing one. This jacket is really light and comfortable and yet can easily be compared to a 600 down jacket w/o the puffiness. It weighs less than a pound. Beyond warm and has drawstrings in the pockets to adjust the size. The weather gets as low as the 20"s at her school. Great jacket and will be purchasing one for myself.

        Comments about The North Face ThermoBall Hoodie - Women's:

        Please use logic when purchasing this so you don't fall victim to advertising persuasion. This is a very thin jacket. Even though it is ridiculously warm considering how light it is, it's not that much warmer or different than layering a rain jacket over a sweater. I see people with these on now in the middle of December, and I know they must be freezing their butts off, and unable to spend money a real winter coat because they invested over $200 in this one. I bought this looking for a lighter jacket for the fall. The main problem I've come across is that I'm either overheating in it at about 50 degrees F or freezing at 40 degrees F and below. It's not a big deal for short walks from the car to the store, but I'm a student who has to walk long distances across a desolate windy campus. I'm not saying don't get it because I like this coat very much. I think it's pretty and easily packable for hiking trips. However, think about what level of warmth you will need and don't buy into what they are saying about it being as warm as a coat.

            I bought this jacket from REI and I loved it!! Lightweight, warm, cute. I wore in -1 deg weather and it was great. After less than 1 month of regular wear (driving kids to school, shopping, etc) the threading came out on the back. I returned and was happy for 2 weeks, then it happened again in the sleeve. It seems to me there needs to be stronger thread or something. This should not happen. I don't put it under strenuous situations. Overall, great idea for a coat, but not durable at all.

            The description for this product is very accurate. The jacket is super light weight, but also very warm. I have experienced a lot of rain, snow, and negative degree temperatures thus far with this product. It has remained dry and retained warmth.

            First, I've been looking for a jacket with a hood but not too bulky and I love the Thermoball! I debated on it for a while due to the price, however, you get what you pay for. It's a longer jacket, going past hips and is a great fall/spring jacket. I wore it as soon as I got it and my friend had to try it on right away. Overall, awesome jacket!

            WHY do they have to be so shiny?!

            from Redmond, WA

            Comments about The North Face ThermoBall Hoodie - Women's:

            NF site recommended I get a small. I should have gone with my gut and gotten the XS as it is too loose and long in the sleeves. I'm 5'1" and 113 lbs. I got the black and pink and it is just too shiny and cheesy looking. Plus, it feels like there is zero filling in quite a few spots and I froze waiting for my daughter's bus today in 34 degree weather. Returning and wishing it came in some of the same colors as the mens and was a lot warmer.

            Thinner material than it looked in the pic.For the price it was not worth it.
            This hoodie ran very small.I could barely get it on--I usually wear XL womens'
            I would probably have to go up about two sizes,maybe three.

              Absolutely perfect for a cold day in Chicago! It's thin and comfortable, but keeps you toasty. I've added a layer if the temperature is <45*F, but it's fine on its own otherwise.

              Just for fit reference: I am 5.6, 140 lbs., and I usually wear a size small shirt/sweater/tops. Size small fits me perfectly, with some room to spare for layering.

              Just for color information: I have the Hoodie in Cool Blue. It looks more blue and less gray than how it's shown in the picture. Very pretty!

                  Comments about The North Face ThermoBall Hoodie - Women's:

                  After looking at the Northface video on their website about this new thermoball technology, I was excited to try this jacket. A slim-fitting, warm jacket? Great! But alas, the first weekend I had it, my husband and I went to Monterey Bay, CA where there were cold winds and a temperature of roughly 55 degrees. I thought I'd be warm because the thermoball is advertised as being comparable to down feather jackets, and people in the promo video are in cold climates like the snowy mountains. Well... I WAS FREEZING! It didn't block the wind. It didn't keep me warm. I get cold pretty easily, but the jacket made me feel like I just had a shell on instead of a high performance jacket. Also, some of the thread started to fray in both of my sleeves after just a few uses. It made the jacket feel really cheap. For $240 (after taxes) I was really disappointed with the insufficient performance of the thermoball. I ended up taking it back and getting a down feather jacket that actually kept me warm. It does fit well (very slimming) and is really cute, but if you're expecting it to keep you warm, this isn't the jacket for you. It's more of a cool summer night jacket.

                  Have you ever wanted to buy an article to wear that was not too much, yet just enough? If so this is the coat for you to not feel bogged down by the weight of a coat on you or over your arm while carrying it. This coat is extremely adorable and warm as well. Tons of color choices for the liner too!

                  I bought my husband a Thermoball Hoodie for xmas last year and have been jealously eyeing it all year. He (wisely) bought me one for my birthday this year. I love it. Light weight. Beautiful color (I got greystone). Super warm and comfy. Only suggestion is that you order up. I'm consistently between sizes (M / L). I tried the Medium (because my North Face fleeces are all M) and it was super snug. Traded it in for the Large and it's fantastic. I can fit a lightweight fleece under it.

                  I absolutely loved this jacket...until I had to wash it. I'm an on the go mom that throws this on and off to chase both kids and a new dog around. After washing once (specifically following the instructions!) the Primaloft clumped together and molded itself into little balls in each patch of the coat. My TNF down doesn't do this and I'm extremely dissatisfied. I now feel like I'm wearing a jacket full of little cotton marbles and it just looks cheap. If you're going to buy this coat, don't ever plan on putting it through a wash cycle.

                    Bought this jacket for the fall season in Alaska. I brought it up with me for a 3 day hike in the mountains. I slipped it on over my base layer any time we stopped and it kept me warm. Also wore it around camp over two light layers and I was warm. Anytime it got windy I would put my windbreaker over it as it does not really stop the wind. I am a true medium and I wish this jacket was a little bigger for layering but besides that, I am happy with it!

                    I purchased the black jacket with the floral lining. It's feminine and an overall great jacket. It's really thin, but it does provide a lot of warmth without the bulk, even when wet. The size is pretty true to fit, in the past I had to order a size up because the sleeves weren't long enough but with this jacket I ordered my true size and the sleeve length is perfect.

                    Nice jacket but did not fit. Had to return it. Took it to my local North Face store. Looked for the same thing but in a larger size (like 1x) but no go. In fact there were no coats in larger sizes. I know your company is all about fitness but some of us are a larger size and fit. It seems to me that you are focused on selling your product to smaller people. It's too bad because you lost a sale. If I can't fit in your product then I can't buy it. Props to the store they took it back and credited my card with no problem.
                    I won't be buying anything from your company any time soon.

                    THIS JACKET HAS COMPLETED MY LONG SEARCH FOR WARMTH, COMFORT, STYLE, AND ABILITY TO FOLD UP INTO ITSELF FOR TRAVELING.
                    I SAW A FRIEND WEARING ONE AND WENT HOME AND RESEARCHED AND EVEN THOUGH I USUALLY WOULD NOT SPEND OVER $50 FOR A JACKET, I TOOK A CHANCE THAT THIS WOULD BE MY ANSWER AND SOLUTION.
                    I HAVE NOW PURCHASED ONE FOR MY DAUGHTER AND HUSBAND AND THEY LOVE THEIRS. INSTEAD OF A DOZEN JACKETS HANGING AROUND ON HOOKS, WE NOW HAVE ONLY THREE!!

                    I was afraid it wouldn't be very warm, but it has proven to be a reliable insulation layer despite being lightweight and seeming rather thin. It's probably not enough to be a winter coat on it's own, but perfect for backpacking and hiking. It packs very small. Also makes an amazing pillow stuffer and is very comfortable to sleep in. (Not at the same time, sadly.)

                    The dimensions are very well designed, fits very nicely, especially the hood! Keeps the wind out, perfect fit. Combines well with a thin fleece hat, too.

                    I have one of (I think) the original models, the turquoise with pale green inside, and my mom has the light silver with dark plum inside... Whoever designed the colors on the original line-up should be put in charge of all color decisions, they are beautiful!! The current colors are meh.

                    Two places they shouldn't have tried to save weight is the thread and the cuff material. Too delicate. Be careful around Velcro and metal zippers. (Maybe this has been fixed?)

                    • Fit:
                    • Feels true to size
                    • Sleeve Length:
                    • Feels true to length
                    • Was this a gift?:
                    • Yes

                    I love this jacket. It has an amazing warmth for that thinness. In deep winter (I live in midwest where the winters are brutal), I would definitely rely on layers. I am 5'1", 112lb and I got the small so that I can wear a sweater or fleece underneath if I want. This jacket will be a great ski midlayer. It will also be a good jacket to take on vacation trips if needed, as its extremely lightweight.

                    This jacket keeps me warm and cosy almost up to 5 degree Fahrenheit.
                    The fit is great and I do get a lot of compliments on how it looks. The jacket is very light weight. But for Chicago weather you might need to wear just an additional layer under this jacket to give you a touch of extra warmth. Overall I love this jacket.
