Every winter day can't be a snow day and that's why kids need warm outerwear like this refined and urban-oriented Boy's Gotham Jacket from The North Face. It's durable, waterproof and insulated with dense layers of quality 500-fill down. The hood on this Gotham Jacket is attached, but the faux fur trim can be removed depending on how your kids decide to wear it (the faux fur trim is great for cold days, but some boys prefer fur-free jacket styling for early-spring downpours). Because the waterproof HyVent nylon fabric is two-ply nylon, The North Face Boys' Gotham Jacket tends to withstand more abuse than boys' down-insulated outdoor/ski jackets made from lightweight taffeta exterior fabric. This is important if your child wears a school backpack over the jacket throughout the winter. Keep in mind that Boys' Gotham Jacket's generous pockets, warmth and durability shouldn't be limited to everyday commuter wear--it's also an ideal kid's coat for extended winter travel, too.


  • Body fabric: Two-ply HyVent® nylon fabric
  • Lining fabric: Breathable 100% nylon taffeta
  • Insulation: 550-fill down insulation
  • Brushed fabric along collar
  • Attached hood with removable faux fur trim
  • Adjustable cuff tabs with Velcro® closures
  • Easy-access handwarmer pockets with Velcro® closures
  • Chest pockets with snap closures
  • Internal pocket for music player and/or cellular phone
  • Zippered internal security pocket
  • Ribbing along cuffs and hem to help seal in warmth
  • Key clip
  • Internal ID label

This jacket beats any other jacket I had. I thought it was kind of pricey at first but when I got it and wore it I felt like I should have paid lot more. Performance and looks are superb. Highly recommend it.

my daughter is going off to college in a cold climate. she loved the style of this boys jacket with the fur lined hood. ordered an XL boys and it fits well. very light. she tends to like more neutral colors as opposed to pastels so we often end up in the boys section. it's a nice gray. boys jackets tend to be more boxy than fitted but she likes it that way. excited for her to wear it when the temperatures drop.

Pros: Great design, Great value

Best Jacket Ever!

Gotham Jacket
February 15, 2011

Looking for a durable semi-waterproof winter coat with plenty of pockets and some modicum of style for our 11 year old son. This jacket has all of what we need in that regard. Would recommend, though a bit pricey.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Cons: Cost

Great coat!

March 08, 2007

Love this Coat!! I had just recently purchased my first N. Face (womens Fur allure)and loved it, so I wanted to get my son a N.Face. The Gotham is perfect for him and he loves it too. Worth the $

Great jacket!
November 18, 2005

Bought this item for my son. He is 13 and men's small just doesn't fit him well so the kids size xl is a perfect fit. All of his friends compliment him on this jacket all the time. North Face makes a great product..lots of pockets for the cell phone, ipod, etc.

Great Coat!
January 28, 2008

Good price. Couldn't find Small size, so went to Boys XL. Guess what, it fits perfectly.

comfy and warm
December 27, 2008

This jacket is an everyday jacket for me to wear. I was trying to get men's small but i went for the boys XL because it's cheaper. It fits nice however the length of arm is a little shorter than I thought. Still it's nice, comfy and warm. it's my best buy in winter

Good looking, first night my son put the jacket next to him before he went to sleep. Sturdy material, very hard to rip it off. Smart design.

My son does get too sweaty in his old North Face. This one is great because it keeps him warm but isn't too heavy. He loves it and does fight wearing it.

Pros: Build quality

My son loves his jacket. It is made very well and keeps him very warm during the NY cold weather. It can stand up to the day to day wear and tear of a growing boy.

Pros: Performance

i love this jacket. it was a very good price and is extremely warm. the only thing i don't like about it is how poofy it fits. otherwise, i love the coat, i couldn't have asked for better for the price.

It's my brother's 1st down jacket and he's loving it. I'm looking for a down that has an urban look and this is the best one that I've found. My brother is usually Men's Small and I read that this jacket is usually bigger than the mentioned size so I bought the Kid's XL - and it fit him perfectly. It's kind a expensive but worth it. I definitely recommend this jacket.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Great value, Cons: Cost

worth the money

Very warm. Waterproof for Chicago winters. Many pockets for boys to stash personal items.
