Rated 1 out of 5 by from Off-Gassing problem in coat lining I bought this coat as a replacement for an older Metropolis model, which was wearing out. The issue is not so much the fit, which is acceptable, but there is a problem with the lining. It seems to be releasing a weird form of dust, which is making family members sick, and the lining fabric has a sticky feel to it. It seems to get worse when it is washed, even in dilute 7th Generation detergent. I had to buy a less-expensive long parka with a conventional lining. Note that our other North-Face jackets do not seem to have this problem, only this model. It has been banished to the garage. If anyone has a fix for this, please E-mail me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great winter coat Despite living in New York my whole life, I never had a super warm coat since walking to the car to school and back never warranted one. Now that I'm going to college in New England and walking around in the cold for periods of time during the day, a simple jacket or pea coat didn't cut it, especially during this past long winter. I think this coat will be perfect, though. It fits just right while still having room for bulkier sweaters, and the length will be great for keeping my legs warm. It's surprisingly lightweight, and the burnt olive green color is really nice-looking.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cute, but could be improved. I had wanted one of these coats for a couple years and decided this would be year. However, when the coat arrived it just didn't seem to have much down in it. I put it on and walked outside into the 0 F Minnesota evening and got cold after just a couple minutes. This coat would not protect me enough for winter use. Also, the front snaps, which are fantastic to have generally, were really hard to unsnap. I mean to the point that I worried the fabric would tear. The North Face could improve this coat by adding more down, putting fleece lining in strategic places like the chest, pockets, and sleeve openings, and putting in better quality snaps. I had to send it back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very stylish winter jacket I was very careful about purchasing a perfect winter jacket for few months. Usually winter jackets are very expensive and I don't want to waste my money on something not worth. Pros: This jacket is very warm. It has some water resistance (but not recommend in a pouring day). It is very light and easy to move my arms around. I've been wearing this jacket over a month now. Cons: I had troubles to unhook the zipper. I don't know if it's something defected product or just as it is. Also, I'm finding a very few downs falling off the jacket. Overall, I like the product!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome! This coat is awesome! I just bought it for Christmas and I can't take it off (even though it's not even cold yet in Boston weirdly enough). It's so comfy and warm and fits perfectly. I'm 5'4" 125 lbs and I bought a small, nervous it would fit kind of tight but it doesn't! I'm glad I went with it. I also bought the charcoal grey color and absolutely fell in love with it. It's not too dark but not too light either. If you're looking for a well fitting coat that doesn't make you look like the abdominal snowman (we've all been there, not cute), then this is it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful, warm coat I have looked and looked for a long, warm coat. The NF Transit was too thin and not long enough and the NF Metropolis was not flattering on me at all. So, I decided to try the Miss Metro b/c of its great reviews. I bought this coat in Burnt Olive as I wanted something different than black. It is a beautiful color. The small was too tight, so I returned it for the medium. (I am 5'4, 125 lbs.) The medium fits perfectly, and it is really warm and perfect for Northern NY winters. I am very happy with my purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flattering, Feminine Coat Im in love with the Miss Metro! After 5 years of being devoted to my black Metropolis, I decided I needed a new puffer to get me through this next East Coast winter. I was really on the fence between the Metropolis and The Miss Metro but went with the Miss Metro because its nipped in more at the waist and is also SLIGHTLY longer in back. This combo gives a really flattering, feminine look that I believe can actually be dressed up more than the Metropolis. The fabric of the Charcoal Heather has a very textural look but is it matte unlike the shinier Metropolis. Runs true to size in my opinion, I'm 5'8'', 140lbs and went with Medium. The only thing I can say I wasn't too sure about it the silver logo on the sleeve but I don't think it will take me too long to get used to because its overall such a great coat. Go with this over the Metropolis if you want something a little more fitted!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Would buy in another color. Was glad to see the "Miss Metro Parka" had a plain lining and not something that would clash with an outfit. I was also grateful "North Face" was embroidered in the same color as the coat and was not a glaring advertisement and distraction. I felt it was also a plus to find a 3/4-length coat that offered a detachable hood not rimmed with faux fur (whether it was removable or not). I did think, however, it would have been nice to have a more substantial zipper in metal rather than plastic and I was a little disappointed it had a double zipper which could be problematic. However, the double zipper did seem to work easily.

What kind of fabric is in the pockets and around the chin, face and cuffs? Is there any fleece?

Asked by: KimO
The fabric in the pockets and around the chin is polyester, similar to the exterior of the jacket. There is no fleece on this parka.

In the details for this product (and in the pictures as well), there is supposed to be a metal logo rivet on the left upper sleeve. Well, I just received my jacket (in black) and the logo is rubber, not metal. Why is this?

Asked by: vancouverite
The North Face is known to change logo colors and placement, secondary colors and other misc. items on their garments. This happens throughout the year. Orders placed through our warehouse cannot be guaranteed to be exactly as pictured on our web sites.
