Rated 1 out of 5 by from Color description is wrong I order the coffee bean brown nuptse vest and received a peach/pinkish marble color vest instead. Returned it to the store and asked what color is this. They couldn't give me an answer. Thinking it might be a defect color, I have them reorder the same coffee bean brown vest for me. The same peach/ pinkish marble color was sent to my house again. So I returned it again to the store and got my refund. Waste of time. I called customer service to complain. They say it's my computer screen that it's not showing the right color. TNF have to do a better description job on the color. Coffee bean brown is dark brown, not peach/pinkish marble. Not even close.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Color I ordered the vest in vanadis grey heather/vanadis grey and it looks nothing like the color shown online. It has no heathering to it. It is grey on top and extremely light grey on the bottom. I called and the operator said that the designers sometimes change the color scheme on the clothing, but do not update the website with the new colors. This seems like bad business to me. I will be returning it. It is annoying to waste all that time. I will not be shopping TNF online anymore. COLOR: VANADIS GREY HEATHER / VANADIS GREY

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality, fits well, warm, & comfortable When something is so much what it is supposed to be, there is not much to write about it. This vest is just about the best you can get for a classic, all-around, down vest. The look and fit are classic (as opposed to a foofy, slave-to-fashion, tight-to-the-body look). Highly recommended. I wear a 46R jacket and the L fits perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Vest I love this vest. It is the most stylish vest on the market. It is very warm and I love the look when I pair it with sweaters or sweat shirts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Christmas Spirit I ordered the product to wear when cold. I ordered some flannels to go with it. One day, a cold day in December, I arrived home from my classes. Sitting on my porch was the brown shipping box. I hurried inside and opened the box. What was inside? Why, this beautiful all black vest. What a site to behold. As soon as I could, I tried it on with my red and black flannel and took a dope selfie for the gram. 40 likes, 50 likes. All the way to 97 likes on my little ol' selfie. Then the next day, I decided to wear it out. The looks on the people's faces as I climb out of my car. I looked like a Modern Day Marty McFly from Back to the Future. "Wow, what a stylish guy!?" The people thought as I adjusted my wrist watch and began to walk to my destination. Because of this vest, my social life has been on the rise for days. For me, I would definitely purchase. Especially if you're planning to be the most stylish human being on your block.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sleeveless Northface- No Restrictions This Winter As a former collegiate athlete and current recreational athlete, I always hunt for gear that is accomodating to the person who is always on the move and needs all ranges of motion accessible at all times. The Sleeveless Northface Jacket allows me to stay warm in the winter while allowing me full range of motion of my arms. I love wearing it when I am coaching my track team in the cold or just when I am hanging out with my buddies on a chilly night. The variety of colors add to a stylish wardrobe. I love everything about thie jacket...from the freedom to the fashion statement!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great casual and versatile vest I first bought the Nuptse vest in 2-tone navy blue, and came back to purchase a second in cosmic heather blue because I liked the first one so much. The down fill is super high quality, and provides excellent insulation, with breathability/layerability. Of course, the ability to layer the vest over a variety of clothing options makes it versatile, and perfect for shorter cold weather stints. I'd highly recommend the Nuptse vest as an essential versatile winter wardrobe piece.
