I've been looking on-line for the right type of light weight jacket for golf and walking. I tried a number of them Oakley, Ping, Adidas and UA. None of them felt right and I sent them all back because they were too long, too loose and / or did not fit in the middle.

Normally I wear XL (6-2, 200lbs), but I purchased the L and it fit perfectly. This is a great product and worth the money.

The jacket is stylish and has a cord on the bottom that can be tightened. The jacket moves well and is water resistant. If you were ever caught in a massive storm, this won't work, but it passed the water under the faucet test.

I highly recommend this jacket.

I am now struggling with the fit since the L is tight and the XL is turning out to be real loose plus the cuff on the sleeve is huge. I cannot imagine wearing this on a windy day due to the size of the cuffs. Will probably return it for that reason. Excluding the size of the cuff it is actually a cool product since the size issue is a me issue.

      By 

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about The North Face Nimble Jacket:

      This jacket is extremely light and will keep your body warm in light wind and rain. It's very comfortable to wear and is a great product. Now remember that this is only my opinion and yours may differ.

      The jacket was purchased for my husband. He enjoys using in not to hot or cold weather. True to size and color. XL is pretty comfortable for a 5'5 , 200lb man.

                  This jacket suits me perfectly. I needed a lightweight, cool to warm weather jacket that has a zippered chest pocket and zippered hand pockets to wear when walking my dog in the morning and when going to the gym. The zippers are very well made and easy to manipulate and do not hang up on the surrounding fabric. I can securely carry my cellphone in the chest pocket and can also zip the hand pockets with my wallet and keys when going to the gym instead of bringing a gym bag to hold my valuables.

                      This is the first Northface item I've ever owned. I've always thought about buying a jacket and finally thought I deserved a present to myself. Love the jacket and will be shopping soon......

                        Perfect as an outer layer for outdoor activity and works just as well as a middle layer for when I snowboard. The only thing preventing me from giving this 5 stars is that the zipper goes down to my diaphragm. It is a more sensitive area and feeling the zipper base press against it is a bit discomforting. Raise the base of the zipper up 2 inches so it rests on the sternum.

                        As for looks, I've gotten complements on the nice shade of blue color that I got, as well as the fit - not too tight, not too baggy.

                              The nimble pull over is a great item for active or casual wear. The wind and water resistant material make it perfect for wearing during bike rides on a brisk day. This year's model also feels more comfortable and the 1/2 zip is an improvement from last year's 1/4 zip.

                                    Really liked the look and style of this pullover. Unfortunately the material made the jacket very tight and clingy. Some may like the feeling, but not really comfortable for me.

                                      I am now struggling with the fit since the L is tight and the XL is turning out to be real loose plus the cuff on the sleeve is huge. I cannot imagine wearing this on a windy day due to the size of the cuffs. Will probably return it for that reason. Excluding the size of the cuff it is actually a cool product since the size issue is a me issue.
