Keeping warm has never been easier with a comfortable jacket from The North Face. A brand known for its fashionable and functional jackets, their coats are sleekly designed and can withstand the elements. Offering layers of warmth, there is a jacket style out there for everyone. Take a look at these styles to find your perfect jacket match from The North Face.

What Should You Consider in a North Face Jacket?

There are many options when investing in a jacket; here are a few features to consider:

  • Fit: The jackets fit a little differently to appease varying preferences and to allow for potential layering over or under your jacket, so it’s important to consider if you want a slim fit or a looser fit in your jacket.
  • Zippered Pockets: If you need to keep your personal belongings secure—especially during snowboarding, skiing, or hiking—consider a jacket with zippered pockets for extra protection.
  • Wet/Dry Weather: Some of the jacket options are made with weather wicking technology, an important consideration if you plan to wear the jackets out in the elements.
