Designed as a technical insulator for ice climbing, mountaineering and backcountry skiing, the windproof Zip-in compatible Redpoint Jacket is a fast-drying, synthetic alternative to down-insulated middle layers. Beneath the lightweight and breathable Keeler nylon ripstop shell is Primaloft® synthetic insulation, a patented ultra-fine microfiber that absorbs three times less water than similar technical insulators. It's an ideal solution for anyone looking for a synthetic insulated jacket with a warmth-to-weight ratio similar to the high-fill down found in high-priced alpine jackets. The Redpoint compresses down into compact dimensions for easy packing. Elastic bound flex cuffs help seal in thermal warmth without sliding down your wrist on prolonged reaches.

Surprisingly warm
November 03, 2007

I got this jacket just in time for November chills. I can wear it with only a thin layer under it and still be warm. This is definitely my favorite jacket. The best North Face jacket you can get for the price.

Great mid-layer insulator jacket
October 14, 2007

The Redpoint jacket is a superb layer under a shell in cold weather. I am six feet tall and a large size fits well.The jacket is so comfortable to wear I barely know that I am wearing it. It packs well and I plan to use it snowshoeing and traveling in colder weather.

Great warmth for weight
December 11, 2007

Packs down light and small. Great warmth for weight and the shell and insulation make it more versatile then down. I use this for summer nights backpacking high sierras and have used on the inca trail at over 13k feet. A great value.

Light jacket that delivers warmth!
March 28, 2008

Purchased this jacket to store for the next winter season. Its spring but the winter refused to leave - so I had to put this jacket to the test. It performed very well, it keeps you warm inside even on a cold winter wind blowing. It did not disappoint -equally great jacket compared to my old Moonstone cirrus jacket.

Great for N. Euro. summer weather
April 08, 2008

A perfect light weight carry along jacket for those early morning and late in the evening time jacket.

happy owner
November 26, 2007

after a long search in a lot of places i finally found just what i needed to go hiking in cold weather at an affordable price, the redpoint is really light and warm. You won't be disappointed at all.

April 06, 2008

I was a little worried when it came packed in a small box but this small jacket is big on warmth. I could probably wear this into winter. Great for casual wear and doing stuff outside. I bought the XL and it fit perfectly! I want to get more of them in other colors.

Great All Around
November 02, 2008

This is a great all around jacket. We live on the shores of Lake Superior and this jacket does well so far (not cold yet) but it feels like it will hold up to the cold. It will layer great too. I like the look and fit. It is so light you hardly know it is on. I finally found my all around transitional jacket to wear through the fall-winter-spring seasons. The hunt is over.

Awesome jacket
May 25, 2010

So I purchased this jacket after a buddy of mine got one and boy am I glad I did. This jacket is by far one of the most versatile jackets that I own. It is amazingly thin and lightweight for the warmth it provides. I have used this jacket in many weather conditions and it hasn't failed me yet. It is a great piece for general wear in Midwest winters. I have also used it while skiing but since it doesn't have pit zips, it can get warm so you won't need much under it. For wet conditions I just throw on a waterproof shell and that's all I need for total warmth and protection. It will zip into many TNF shells but it also fits comfortably under my Arcteryx shells as well. I loved this jacket so much that I got the hooded version as well for some additional head protection. Get one! You won't regret it.

Primaloft One is THE ONE
August 06, 2007

My husband and I had old Primaloft jackets, which we loved, but they were getting old and new ones were hard to find until the Redpoint. Primaloft is warmer than most other synthetic insultations, but breaths quite well. I have never been more comfortable with any other light weight insulation. The jacket design can be dressed up or down and is just long enough in back so cold won't sneak up. And both men's and women's zip into our LLBean Gore-tex XCR parkas which make for the perfect fall/winter jacket. Buy the Redpoint you won't be disappointed. Sizing husband is an XL in shirts and an XL was perfect. I am a size 12/Large and the Large was perfect (just enough room for layering, but not too loose or too tight). Also the neck sizing on these jackets are just right. And ALTREC is just awesome. Never any problems ordering and never any problems returning. Just excellent.

Great jacket on its own or zipped into a shell
February 07, 2007

I had a North Face down liner and shell for years, until it was stolen. Not wanting to face that possibility again, I spent less on my next one: a Columbia parka with zip in lining. It was a nice coat, but I never was as happy with it. I gotta say I really like the superior waterproofing of the Gore fabric on the higher-end North Face products. This year I decided to spring for another North Face system, and I started with the Redpoint Jacket. It seems warm enough for the coldest days in Pennsylvania, keeping me happy even down to 10 degrees. The Primaloft filling is cheaper than down, but it seems to perform as well and is a little less bulky. I intend to zip this in a shell for waterproofing and a little extra warmth, but even without the shell, I can use this as a stand-alone jacket. It has nicely placed side pockets (some coats have them too high or too low), and the Napoleon pocket on the left chest is great for an additional item. My vow now is not to hang it in public closets!

GREAT jacket, one of my favorites
January 29, 2007

I had some trouble picking between the redpoint and the Mountain Hardwear chugach jacket. Both are light and warm. Both are seriously awesome jackets. I just happen to like the redpoints fit and look a little better. It fits a little tighter and I prefer the colors. All in all, you can't go wrong with either jacket, it just depends on if you like it bigger (Mountain Hardwear), or tighter (The North Face). This is one of my favorites. Great great great jacket.

The best dual-purpose jacket made!
January 03, 2005

The North Face Redpoint jacket is a great dual-purpose jacket. It is very light, yet provides excellent weather protection when worn alone. As a jacket liner, its light weight makes it less bulky than other fleece liners. The fabric used makes it very easy to slip in and out of a shell. You simply cannot go wrong with this jacket. A great investment.

Very Stylish
February 24, 2005

Lisa S. won't be able to resist me in this baby.

Great jacket
November 06, 2008

This jacket is lightweight, packable, windproof and warm (but not too warm). I like the versatility - it is sporty but not too casual and will work great on its own or to layer. Excellent jacket for the price!

Awesome Jacket!!!
January 12, 2008

Wore this jacket skiing in low 20s - teens temps. It was almost too warm. Kept me dry the whole time. Primaloft is way smaller than down jackets and keeps you just as warm. Perfect all around jacket!

Couldn't be more happy!!
January 06, 2004

I searched high and low for a jacket with similar features and there aren't any like it. I couldn't be happier now that I own the Redpoint. Don't hesitate to buy one, I love mine.

March 23, 2005

Fell in love with this jacket right away! This jacket not only is small, but it actually keeps you warm in the winter time. (Cannot believe is mind boggling if you tell me) Love it so much that I went to buy a women's redpoint for my wife and she just can't seem to take it off wherever she goes now. This is the BEST investment I'm telling you.

BEST Jacket for a Server's Room Environment
January 20, 2008

I brought this jacket because of the chill environment in my office that contains multiple servers. The jacket is light, durable, and is multiple functional. I use this jacket for work and wearing it during the winter in Southern California. I own two different colors in this same jacket. This jacket made me a North Face’s customer for life. I forgot to mention also that have the best customer service level when it comes to return and selection of products.

Buy It.
February 10, 2008

True to size. Adds good warmth. Great layering piece. Great looks. Blocks a majority of wind. Packs right into the pocket for easy carrying. A must have in your arsenal of jackets in your closet. Buy it!

very warm and nice!
October 22, 2007

nice jacket, nice fit, warm and light... i havent prove it yet with rain...

I love this jacket
December 25, 2007

I shopped around A LOT, and finally found what I was looking for in the Redpoint Jacket. Thin and stylish, yet warm. For the especially cold days I will be buying a fleece to go under it, great jacket!

May 24, 2008

very warm but not too hot. Perfect for 28-40 degrees. I purchased this for less than $100 - bargain of the year!

great product at great price
November 10, 2007

The Jacket is warm and very light. I have used it as my primary jacket and has served me well thus far. I have also enjoyed the packing feature. However the blue seems to be a bit brighter in person that it did on the picture. No real complaints.

Great Service, Great Product!
January 19, 2005

My experience with, on my first purchase from them, over all was a great one. The North Face Redpoint Jacket I ordered from them arrived very quickly, and at a very reasonable delivery price. When you add that to the discounted price of the jacket I still ended up saving about 25% of what I would have spent normally. The Redpoint jacket is just what I wanted. Something that is watertight, wind proof, and very warm. Good for light snow. Over all a great buy.

Redpoint Jacket
December 10, 2006

This jacket is awsome! I was hiking in 10 degree weather with this jacket and I was fine. Very warm, lightweight, waterproof and a good wind blocker. It's the best jacket I've purchased yet! You can compact this jacket in the left pocket which is nice for backpacking.

Light, simple and warm!
April 10, 2008

Purchased the jacket towards the end of season - hoping to keep it for the next season. Well, mother nature decided to extend winter this year, I get to take the Redpoint out for a live test. It performed just I expected - providing warmth and enough water resistance to withstand the light snow / rain. Very pleased with the performance of the jacket!

Good experience all around.
July 23, 2008

Excellent design and craftsmanship. Stylish European fit. Also very competent merchandise shipping & handling service.

Good value, warmer than expected for its size.
December 17, 2003

This is a great choice if you want a coat that is not too large but still provides a substantial amount of warmth. The jacket falls between full-out winter parka and a fall-time fleece. I've been wearing mine as a winter coat and it is working perfectly. Other reviews complained about the "napolean" zipper getting jammed...I've had no such problem. In fact, I find the breast pocket perfect for holding my cell phone and wallet. Overall, I give this jacket a strong recommendation.

January 28, 2005

Excellent value. Very warm and warmer than expected for its weight and thickness. I don't feel restricted at all with this on. Other bulky jackets you can not move about freely, this one you can. Very happy.

Looks great and value for money
November 03, 2007

The redpoint jacket did not disappoint at all. A size small fits just right for my Asian built, being 1.7m and 60kg. Plus it looks fantastic and presentable, so much as that I could even wear it to office on cold days. Speedy and reliable service from Altrec too. Bravo!

Very light and warm!
May 08, 2008

Perfect for the wind we get here in San Francisco. Can't wait till try it in the rain.

Just plain comfortable
November 22, 2007

Very warm and comfortable, and above all is not bulky at all, which allows me to drive with it on, on chilly mornings. Very much satisfied with jacket. Frank.

Nice all around jacket
August 18, 2008

Well made, stylish, functional and lightweight. I’m 6’1” 200 lbs and the large fits great.

Great buy!
November 19, 2007

This is a great jacket! Perfect weight for after a run or to use as everyday jacket. Rolls up nicely to pack for insulation layer during a break on a hike. Very happy with the coat!!!

The North Face Redpoint Jacket is an EXCELLENT product. My order from was my first purchase from them. Ordering from the website was easy, color selection good, the price was consistent with other Retailers. Delivery, packaging and shipping was fast. The Redpoint Jacket is very lightweight and flexible. The Redpoint Jacket keeps me much warmer than I expected when compared to Lands End products. The Redpoint jacket is windproof, water resistant and a very good jacket for the price. I own four colors of the Redpoint jacket. I recommend that you purchase a Redpoint jacket today. You will not be sorry!

Nice and warm!
November 14, 2007

I purchased this jacket to keep me warm when a fleece jacket didn't cut it. The elastic wrist cuffs and the elastic waist hem cinch cords keep the cold out. The DWR finish is a nice touch for damp conditions and you don't have to worry about the insulation going flat like down feathers would. I look forward to using this under my parka shell come snowboard season. I was a bit skeptical about the primaloft insulation but it is actually quite warm!

warm and light with decent look
April 22, 2008

I like this jacket because of very decent look. It is very warm and light, that was the main reason I bought it when I looked at Altrec and when I got it I was so happy that I made this decision. It is one of the best jackets I have bought.

Wonderful insulator jacket
April 04, 2007

This jacket is lightweight (for its warmness), yet an excellent insulator. It's water resistant, windproof, and really warm. It definitely gives you better weather protection than fleece; but it's lighter and less buky than coat. It's stylish too. I'm 160cm and 58kg, and I find small size fits well. Not too loose as many coats, but it still gives you space for layering (albeit only for base-layer, shirt, and light sweater). The medium size I guess would be too big for me, and the sleeves would be much too long. The empire blue color that I have looks fantastic! You will look sharp if you wear this jacket in town. It would be nice thou if the collar is brushed with some light fleece, but that's just a minor thing. As always, Altrec is a fantastic company. The jacket arrived very quickly although it's on free shipping. No tax too. Highly recommend the jacket and order it from Altrec.

Redpoint Jacket
March 26, 2008

The Redpoint Jacket is perhaps the best insulating liner ever! It is light, warm, comfortable, durable and form fitting. When pared with the TNF Mountain Light Jacket, it keeps me warm and comfy in all kinds of outdoors conditions and very comfy in temperatures in the 40s and 50s. Would highly recommend this jacket/liner.....along with the Mountain Light Jacket, Venture Jacket, and Bionic Jacket.....all purchased from Altrec.

Great addition to any North Face shell!
December 31, 2007

I purchased the Redpoint Jacket as a gift for my husband. He was very happy with it. He already had the Trinity Triclimate jacket, which includes a shell and fleece liner. He is now using the Redpoint jacket as the liner instead of the fleece as the fabric in the Redpoint makes it easier to slip on over a sweater - not so much static. And it zips in to the shell and fits perfectly! I would definitely reccommend it. Thank you.

great jacket
February 19, 2005

Awesome jacket. Light, warm and perfect for pocket mulching.

A great, all-around light weight layer for zip-in or alone
February 10, 2007

Purchased the redpoint jacket as a zip-in layer to TNF mountain light - a perfect combo at <2kg, and very warm. The Redpoint can also be worn alone, although this layer is not as form-fitting as a softshell, so it doesn't have the same degree of wind protection.

Great jacket overall
January 23, 2007

The North Face Mens Redpoint Jacket is a light weight, very warm and perfect for typical Fall/Entry Winter weather. When the weather got warmer as it did this season, I packed the jacket into my backpack with out any problems. I Highly recommend this jacket.

Versatile, warm Jacket
March 31, 2004

I'm going to purchase a second one. This jacket is good looking, very light, and very warm. It resists water and wind and stuffs into it's pocket to make a nice backpacking pillow. It could be the only jacket you need 90% of the time. It weighs the same as a light fleece but is windproof and watertight. Forget 'softshells' The Redpoint is actually warm, quite warm...get this one. Love the napoleon pocket!

The Redpoint Jacket was wonderful in Argentina
June 30, 2008

This jacket is light weight (key for packing for a week's worth of sight-seeing), and warm enough to wear a golf shirt underneath even in 2C weather. It was versatile and it fit well. I made the right choice.

Great jacket for my urban nightlife
March 31, 2008

This jacket is warm, light and very comfortable. When I first received the jacket I felt it might not be warm enough cause of its light weight but that's not been the case in the 35-45 degree weather of Seattle that we see even in March. It also breaks wind pretty well. Overall, I am very satisfied with this purchase.

October 12, 2008

This jacket keeps me warm and also wind resistance is very nice... I love it! Thanks Altrec for selling at cheap discount price also :-)

Very good lightweight jacket
December 01, 2006

A very good jacket and a great liner for a parka or jacket shell. Not quite as warm as I expected from other reviews but still good and not as bulky as down. Air can come up from bottom or around neck so keep draw cord on bottom snug. I would have prefered a warmer lining, especially around neck, but that may have increased bulk and weight. Overall, a great jacket for the in between chilly and really cold weather or as a liner.
