Product Info

Keep your core toasty with the The North Face ThermoBall Vest. Whether you layer up or wear it alone, this vest is appropriate for a cold day on the slopes as well as hanging out by the fire when it's all said and done. ThermoBall™ insulation keeps the heat in, while zippered hand pockets and internal elastic cuffs offer bonus protection for blustery days.

Insulation

15D 33g ThermoBall™ | 100% Nylon Baffled InsulationDeveloped in partnership with Primaloft, Inc., ThermoBall™ is a revolution in insulation technology. Unlike traditional continuous-filament synthetic insulation, the small, round PrimaLoft synthetic-fiber clusters closely mimic down clusters, trapping heat within small air pockets to retain warmth. Independent testing by Kansas State University has shown that ThermoBall has warmth equivalent to 600-fill goose down. As a result, ThermoBall can offer the lightweight warmth and compressibility of down with the wet-weather insulating performance of synthetic insulation.

The Thermoball vest is a great add to my outdoor wardrobe. I purchased the vest, in particular, for an elk hunting trip into northern Colorado. I wanted something light for my backpack when not being warn. This vest exceeded my expectations. When not in use, it weighed virtually nothing in my pack, but when needed (and it was often), it was very warm, yet still breathable. I wore it with just a long sleeve shirt and also as layered clothing under various jackets. It performed perfectly. Now it's my go to vest for all occasions. The deep pockets are a nice feature and the YKK zipper performs without a snag everytime.

    Love the new Thermoball!

    By 

    from San Francisco

    Comments about The North Face ThermoBall Vest:

    Bought the jacket with hood for my husband. He no longer wears any other jacket in his closet. It is functional and sleek. When it is too warm for the jacket, he now reaches for his new Thermoball vest. Much more sleek than prior vests and a good value relative to competitive brands that offer less technology at higher prices. Can't recommend the Thermoball vest and jackets more highly.

    Liked it except for the second logo

    By 

    from Philadelphia

    Comments about The North Face ThermoBall Vest:

    I loved this vest, but I didn't love the second logo located on the back of it. It seems like overkill to have a logo located on the front and back of such a minimal garment. I felt like a walking advertisement so I returned it.

    Comments about The North Face ThermoBall Vest:

    I also have the thermoball jacket. I can recommend both! Great for travel, as they squeeze into their own pocket pouch. I've traveled the world, in many conditions with these products, and they never fail to keep me warm!

    Comments about The North Face ThermoBall Vest:

    The size advisor was pretty good. It was dead on with my heavy weight son and was a bit under with my normal weight son. It's a bit early to know how the products will wear . They're down like in feel, compression, and weight. We'll see how they hold up. So far so good.

      EXCELLENT QUALITY / LIGHT WEIGHT & WARM!

      By 

      from Dallas, TX

      Comments about The North Face ThermoBall Vest:

      I am a shopper who has to touch, feel, try-on, etc before I will make a purchase. I went to the NF Dallas store to try on the vest and could not decide whether to purchase it or not. After a few days, I logged on to the NF website, purchased the vest and was very pleased with the communication and expediency of the delivery. The vest is very light, keeps you very warm and looks very stylish. I would absolutely recommend the vest to anyone.

                          Love it! It did have a white chalky line across the front but with a damp washcloth and a couple treatments it did go away! Other than that was exactly what I was looking for and would no doubt recommend to others!

                          Great vest!!! I'm extremely happy with my purchase. Bought it about 2 weeks ago for the fall, and have had no regrets. Extremely lightweight yet offers you the warmth you need. TNF recommended me a S but I went with M and it fits great. I wear this all the time , usually with a hoodie underneath it. Very comfortable and stylish. Also has no tags, a big + in my book. Thank you TNF for making such a great product !

                          I bought this vest for my husband. He is 6'2, 185 lbs, and the Medium fits well. He wears it all the time around the house and under his North Face hooded down jacket for extra warmth on really cold days. It is very versatile. The grey color is great!

                          Great Vest, very warm but not bulky. This is great when the temps outside are cold but not bitter or as an extra layer when it's really cold.

                          I am going to school in northern New York, where temps below 30, begin in Novenmber and winds/cold are everyday weather through March. Vest is perfect layer to my thermoball jacket. Cuts wind, keeps me dry and warm. Great product.

                          Super light, very warm and practical. sizes run large, so a size Large is like a XX. Having a more fitted sizing would be great if wearing a t-shirt or shirt.
