The North Face Women's NFZ Insulated Jacket review. OnTheSnow reviewed this insulated jacket as part of its 2016/2017 Jacket Buyers' Guide.

Favorite Features: The face fabric on this TNF jacket sports a unique look and feel that has durability written all over and sewn throughout it. Couple that with a GORE-TEX membrane and PrimaLoft insulation and you’re set up for some serious resort skiing resilience and cozy comfort.

Room for Improvement: In an era of stretch, articulation and feminine perfection, this jacket is a bit on the bulky/boxy side.


Fit: Generally true to size on the fit front, but somewhat restrictive through the arms/shoulders.
