So Warm!
December 03, 2010

This jacket is cute and warm. I get compliments every time I wear it. I am 5'4" and 137 lbs. and the small fits perfectly. I can wear nothing but a T shirt under it on super cold days and be perfectly toasty! Great Jacket!

Love it...redesigned
November 08, 2012

Seems like the Gotham jacket has been redesigned this year. Gone are the ribbed cuffs and bottom....and I love it! This jacket is so comfortable and lightweight. Perfect winter warmth without all the bulk. I love it so much I bought it in three colors (black, purple, grey). I would say it fits true to size. I'm 5'4", 140lbs, and the medium fits perfectly. Even room to layer with a sweater underneath.

Pros: Great design, Ease of use, Great value

December 16, 2009

This is a great jacket! Warm, cozy, and well mad.

Very Comfortable and looks great.
November 12, 2008

Keeps me warm in extreem cold to moderate temps. I love the way it looks on me. Style and practicality in one!

Purple North Face
March 23, 2012

This jacket is very comfortable and fits great. I typically don't buy short jackets but this one happens to look great - I'm short and have a short torso - but this coat fits perfect. The hood is big and I really like the fur around the edge. The jacket is extremely lightweight but warm at the same time. Excellent purchase!

Pros: Performance, Great value

March 16, 2007

I wish that North Face would put fur around the hood and put that on the Nuptse Jacket because that is another very nice coat. All and all The North Face Womens Gotham Jacket is very nice to wear. I ordered mine at the right time.

Warm and Stylish!

Nothing compares to North Face clothing...
January 10, 2011

This jacket is the best jacket I've ever will last forever! I will recommend this jacket to everyone. I really like the color as well..different from the norm.

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

I would love the jacket more if ....
January 31, 2007 wasn't for this one little functional flaw. The velcro along the zipper snags and pulls on the knitted cuff of my left sleeve when I go to zip and unzip my jacket. This annoys me greatly because I would think North Face would be more thoughtful in their product design.

Excellent coat,excellent service.
January 02, 2008

It has been below zero for 3 days and the Gotham lived up to the North Face reputation: kept me warm! I love it.

Great jacket
May 06, 2009

Bought it for my wife as a gift, she loves it. It is very stylish and super warm.

Fabulous, very warm
February 02, 2010

I think this jacket looks sooo hot on and is very warm!!!

January 08, 2008

North Face is the best! This jacket is warm and fashionable.

Warm but too puffy
January 21, 2008

I bought my firlfriend this jacket for christmas, although she picked the jacket herself online, it was much puffier than it looks. but it definitely keeps her warm!

Great jacket....
December 26, 2009

Great jacket for my wife however ordered a size too short and had to return it. Just ordered a size up and in a different model as the vintage white appeared sold out.

February 08, 2010

I purchased asphalt grey in size small. It's really warm and the color is gorgeous. But it's really big on me. I'm 5'4 and 118 lbs. The jacket looks really baggy on me. Other than the size problem, this jacket is great for warmth and styling!

Warm, comfortable, well-made
November 18, 2009

This jacket is one of the best purchases I have made. Not only is it warm and comfortable, but looks stylish. It shipped within one day.

Warm and comfortable.

great North Face quality coat
October 27, 2010

The Gotham coat is a very nice North Face product, however, I only gave it 4 stars because it did not fit my needs as a ski coat. It appears very warm and is comfortable to wear, however, it is too puffy and short for the slopes. Also, it seems that the hood is a bit bulky when you zip up the front all the way and would be bothersome with a helmet on. I ordered the small and it fit well, I am 5'5 and 132 lbs. I would recommend this coat as a warm outer layer in the winter months, however, if you are specifically looking for a ski coat there are better options available by North Face. In all fairness, I don't think it was marketed by North Face as a ski coat, but I had to try it on because it is a very cute coat otherwise.

Great coat, but too short
January 09, 2008

I wanted to love this jacket!! Maybe I should have gotten a small. I am 5'6" and ~110 lbs and the extra-small was just too short and I would have had to keep pulling it down. I think that's partially the style, that it's hip and more cropped than the usual parka, but I need tummy coverage in the cold weather...and in other weather, for that matter. Am going to give the Nuptse a try. Altrec was awesome!!

Great Jacket!!!!
January 21, 2008

Ilove my Gotham Jacket. It is very comfortable and warm. I tried the Tempest Down jacket it was very stiff and not at all comfortable. the Gotham Jacklet is now my most favorite of all the jackets I own. I live in Chicago and the weather here has had a wind chill of -15 this week. I was very warm in my jacket!!!!

Everything my 15 yr. old was looking for.
May 21, 2009

Great look and a great fit (not too puffy)at a great price and the North Face quality!

nice style and fit
December 15, 2012

bought for my 22 yr old daughter - has nice details in waist, feminine style but still very functional and warm. North Face is always good quality as we have both owned a number of them. Only drawback-hood is extremely large-she hasn't really used the hood yet so hasn't adjusted it. Hopefully it will adjust enough to not cover her eyes and face entirely.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance

Awesome Coat and Deal!!
December 17, 2009

I just received the coat for my daughter for Christmas. It is awesome and the color (Vintage White) is awesome. She is going to love it.

Super warm. Cute. Great investment.
December 21, 2009

You definitely get what you pay for. I bought this jacket in dire need of a winter jacket to keep me warm walking a mile+ to work before the sun rises in single-digit temperatures. This jacket is incredibly warm, the down hood makes all the difference when that wind is biting. When zipped all the way up, it covers most of the face too. However, it's not a long jacket, and it leaves the waist and butt etc. exposed to the elements. Other than that, this is the nicest winter jacket I've ever owned. Furthermore, it turns heads ;)

January 12, 2010

think the jacket is great. i ordered a small (i am 5'4", 110lbs), but it felt a little small when wearing a sweater underneath. plus i like to feel roomy in my jackts. felt tight across the shoulders. so...i returned it. would have ordered next size up but they were sold out in the color i wanted. the jacket is well made, warm and has style.

December 29, 2009

Best jacket for the price! Very warm and very stylish! I Love it and highly recommend it!!! A++++++++++++++++++

February 11, 2007

It is a great jacket that combines comfort, warmth and style. I am 5'1 - 100 lbs and the extra small is a perfect fit. Fits nicely with or without a sweater underneath.

Altrec provides and great product with good service. Thank you
December 19, 2007

I bought this jacket for my daughter, she loves it and I loved the service. She had grown out of her last winter jacket and it was getting cold here in Minnesota.We needed it fast and it did arrive within a few days! I had never ordered from Altrec, I did again ,I ordered some boots for myself. Thank you

Beautiful jacket !
December 21, 2009

I bought this jacket for my daughter for Christmas. I tried it on and it is so warm and comfortable ! She is just going to love it !

Awesome jacket!
June 28, 2009

It looks great AND is extremely warm. I ordered the one in vintage white since they ran out of the other colors but I actually ended up loving its color - it's really not that white, which is nice b/c my jackets always get dirty. I definitely definitely recommend this jacket!

I would purchase this jacket again
February 03, 2008

I purchased this jacket for my teenage daughter. It has kept her warm in subzero wind chills yet been comfortable in 50 degree weather. The Gotham has ample room in the arms and body for layering yet has a sleek look. Thrilled with this jacket!

To short
January 20, 2008

This coat is super warm and would be heaven if it was just a bit longer. I have to pull it down in the back when I sit down. I also have the complaint about the cuffs that others have posted...the fabric doesn't hold up well. For the money, I'm a bit disappointed.

Vintage White = more like the color of the pages of an old book
March 04, 2010

I got the black one for my mom and it's beautiful! Then I decided to get the Vintage white... so UGLY! Nice jacket, just the color is not right...

Fantastic Coat
November 12, 2009

I ordered the Asphalt Grey for my 15 year old for Christmas. It is so cute. It is not too puffy and it's a great fit. Very figure flattering. Thankfully, it fits me, too.

Great deal!
January 01, 2008

I purchased this jacket for my mother who is always cold. She loved it and she wasn't cold!

this coat rocks
March 01, 2007

This is a great coat!! It looks great and fits great.The only problem is that it's a lint magnet so if you have pets keep a lint brush on hand.I'm very happy with the coat and the service of altrec!!!!!!!!

feathers everywhere
October 14, 2007

I bought this jacket for my g/f & the feathers were leaking out of it. It's not a bad jacket at all, but it was a little puffy for her liking. She tends to like more slimmer type jackets.

Doesn't fit well around the chest
January 07, 2008

I love northface jackets and I purchased this one and I love the looks of it, but even one size up doesn't fit around my chest. Are they shrinking this area for people who need a little more room? I never had this problem before.

Puffy to the extreme
December 15, 2009

Great deal but wayyyy too puffy for my taste.

November 21, 2009

A great looking coat that is functional and fits well, a winner. I was looking for a warm winter coat that would also look great and fashionable. The moderately shiny appearance of the fabric allows you to dress it up a bit and wear this coat with a lot of different looks...dressed down or up a bit.

warm but doesn't fit quite right
January 24, 2013

i read all the reviews and i agree that the product is warm BUT the sizing is kind of off. i ordered a small, which fit my chest comfortably with a sweater but the sleeves are way too long and forget about the hood. it's a joke. it is so big that you can't use it and there's no way to adjust. so, unless you literally have a head the size of a watermelon this hood is not going to help you in any way. by the way i am 5'4 110lbs, usually wear an xs, but it was too small, so i got the small. north face makes a quality product which is good at keeping you warm, but they need some new fit models asap!!

Pros: warm and lightweight, Cons: doesn't fit right

January 15, 2008

The coat is the perfect style and fit for what I was looking for and I was very happy that you had the color I was looking for. This coat was impossible to find in the stores and you made it very easy to achieve. Thanks.

She said it is the warmest coat she has ever had. She has Columbia, Carhartt, etc... I purchased it in black and it is just gorgeous. Priceless!!!!!!!.

Women's Gotham Jacket
November 01, 2011

Most comfortable coat I've ever owned. Not heavy or bulky but yet warm no matter what the weather. Style is timeless. I love it! Would highly recommend for anyone from those that are outdoors for long periods of time to those that are getting in and out of the car or those that go outdoors occassionally. Quality is impeccable!

definitely warm
January 15, 2008

This jacket is toasty warm and holds up well during the coldest New York City days. However, it is a little bulky and the hood does not detach, which makes it less fashionable than it could be. It will definitely protect you from the elements though!

Toasty and Stylish
January 04, 2009

I looked at alot of coats and could not find the right one. This coat is perfect..and very warm. It is short, but with the cuff at the waist it holds in place just fine. I do wish the hood came off, but at least it is adjustable and the fur comes off if you want. If your hands get cold just shove them in the pockets and they heat right up. Really great buy.

January 06, 2010

Bought the jacket for my daughter and she is very pleased.

great jacket!
August 02, 2010

I live in wyoming and the winter here is the worst, and I needed a warm jacket that will prepare me for that. After I read many reviews about this jacket, I decided to get the vintage white in medium. I am 5'3, 115, and usually wear a small, but since this jacket do run short, I decided to get the medium, and it fits perfect. It covers my waste and it doesn't look huge on me. The color is not true white, it's more like a ivory, creme color, which is not bad either, and for it being $100 less than the original price, it's a great deal. i would definitely suggest it to anybody!

Too puffy
January 21, 2008

I got the jacket for my girlfriend for christmas. She picked it out online and it doesnt look that puffy but its a little too puffy for her liking. It does keep her pretty warm though!


So worth it
December 06, 2010

I bought this jacket for my daughter. She wanted a Northface because all her friends had one. I wanted to get a color, other than black, that would stand out from the rest. The gold color is absolutely beautiful. We live in New England and she says she has to unzip it sometimes because it's so hot. Perfect for our weather. We love it!!

February 28, 2007

I just received my North Face Gotham Jacket in black today and I love it! It is so warm, and the down is so soft. I also love the fur on the hood, and if you don't like the first after a few years, you can easily take it off with a zipper. I am 5 foot 4 inches and about 120 pounds and I ordered the Small, and it is perfect for me. There is even enough room to wear a bulky sweater or a sweatshirt and it still wouldn't be too tight. Overall, this is a GREAT product. LOVE ITTT!

February 03, 2009

love this jacket super warm i wish the inside felt like the inside of the pockets but its ok its super warm and looks amazing on! the size was perfect!

Overall great, though a little skimpy in the back
May 19, 2009

Bunches a bit in the small of the back due to the elastic bottom, but, overall a great winter jacket. Long sleeves and good for layering. A steal at this price.

Comfy, Cozy, Practical, and Fashionable
December 31, 2009

I love the fact that the jacket has removable fur. I would recommend this jacket to anyone that likes to stay warm and look good at the same time. Also, no extra layers are needed if in 30 degrees or higher. Furthermore, the pockets keep hands very warm and the linings are soft. All in all, it was a great purchase.

Solid coat... and cute... but runs very small
December 28, 2010

We bought this coat for our daughter (a medium) and it is ridiculously small. My daughter is 5'7" and ~115lbs and a size 0. The arm length is fine but the torso is ridiculously small (short and shallow). I realize that is part of the design but they have just poorly designed the proportions on this coat. We returned the coat and purchased another TNF coat (a small) and it had the same arm length and there was more room in the torso (as a small!!!). Even other brands (Marmot, Patagonia, etc.) offered much more room at the same or smaller size. So this is a decent coat (warm) and is very cute but it is very poorly sized.

Cons: Bad design

Fashionable, warm and comfortable. Pricey.
January 09, 2007

I wore this jacket to a NFL football game in Seattle, Wa. in December. Yes it was raining. A lot. This jacket kept me warm in temperatures below 40 but found out right away that it was not waterproof. Once the jacket got wet, I got cold. If you are wearing this in a dry climate, it will keep you toasty. Not great for wet snow or rain. I like the fur trim on the hood. The jacket is a little short waisted. I felt it ran true to size. A little pricey.
