Description

When winter blankets the landscape and the temperatures drop, The North Face Women's Transit Jacket allows you to bundle-up and stay toasty warm without looking like a stay-puff marshmallow. This quilted, slim style parka is insulated with plush 600 fill goose down that covers from head to mid-thigh in cozy comfort while traversing the village, taking on a friendly snowball fight, or snowshoeing your favorite trail. Providing exceptional mobility and warmth beneath its comfortable and stylish exterior, this snow jacket features an insulated, adjustable, hood with brushed chin guard lining that seals up tight in a pesky wind, and snaps-off for added style in moderate temps. This TNF jacket's two-way center front zip is protected with a snap-down weather flap closure to prevent arctic air from cutting through, and allows for convenient venting when jumping in a cab. Storing essentials in the internal media pocket, warming your digits in the hand pockets, and stashing the house key on the clip in front pocket, this down parka keeps you winter organized. Take your winter wardrobe up a notch with the functional and fashionable Women's Transit Jacket from The North Face.

I think its worth for each penney.I bought the shiny black color The only thing i was not happy is the northface logo on the jacket is not white in color. That's ok not a big deal. great coat !!!!!!!!!

Great coat!
January 09, 2011

I shopped for a really long time looking for the "perfect" winter jacket. I finally found it! It fits perfect -- I wear either a medium or large -- I got the medium and it is a great fit. The length of the sleeves are good. Altrec.com also had the best price. The only issue I have found is the zipper is difficult sometimes. Maybe I just need to break it in a little more! Other than that, I would definitely recommend this coat to anyone.

February 07, 2011

I live in Texas and walk every day. Last week we had temperatures in the single digits, 6 degrees!, with windchills below 0. The warmth of the parka was outstanding! I even tried wearing a short sleeved t-shirt underneath it after the weather warmed up a bit and it was quite comfortable. I would recommend this parka to anyone who needs warmth without the weight of a heavy coat. I love it!

This coat is lightweight and very warm. I was a little skeptical at first, that it would be warm. However, I was pleasantly surprised. I like a coat that has a little bit of length to it and this coat fit the bill perfectly. I ordered this in a Medium and the size is true to fit. The color is very chic. I ordered the Slate and I love it.

Loving My North Face!
February 24, 2011

This is the second North Face coat that I've purchased and as a person that HATES the cold-the women's transit jacket is worth it's weight in gold! I've owned the knee length version of this coat for almost 7 years and it has held up amazingly well through the brutal Michigan winters. In fact, what prompted this purchase was that I finally wore down both zippers on my old North Face and had to send it to the manufacturer to be repaired. Needless to say, mid February is a horrible time to be without my North Face, so of course I ordered a new one! The coat runs large, so if you are trying to decide between two sizes, definitely go with the smaller size. I'm 5'5" and big busted-I ordered a large in the graphite grey and it's perfect!

Great Coat
January 04, 2011

This is an awesome coat!! It is the perfect weight and provides warmth without the bulk of a heavy coat! The removable hood and other features make it practical for many uses. I use the inside zip pocket and IPod holder when I walk in the mornings. I loved it so much that I purchased one for my sister for Christmas. She has tried hers out and loves it too. Never mind that the coat looks great!

I love my new coat. It is perfect for every day and even for dressy occasions. The hood keeps me warm in the winter and the fit shows off my figure. I am 5 4 1/2 amd weigh 145, but I ordered a small and it fits great. I had a different northface for a few years. but it was a little bulky and I really like the way this new coat fits. It's very warm and I would recommend it to anyone.

January 28, 2012

Extremely warm, yet it is so lightweight and easy to wear without the bulk. I have bought a few winter coats and they just did not have the warmth and the warm ones were bulky or unflattering. I love the style because I can wear this to work. Worth the money!!

Very happy with this jacket
March 07, 2011

I love it! It looks great on and is very warm. I have the North Face Triple C and the Patagonia Downtown Loft coats which are very long, and the North Face Arctic Parka which is knee length and I wanted something a little shorter when it was too warm to wear any of those, but still wanted a warm jacket. This one covers the butt and hits the top of the thigh so it is perfect, I do not like my jackets any shorter than that. And it has a really nice hood, I don't like my coats without hoods. It has great lines, very flattering. The fabric is soft and silky, I got the black. No problems with the zipper or feather shedding as I have seen others complain about! All around great jacket and right now you can get it on sale ... don't resist!

April 28, 2011

I bought this jacket because my boyfriend has the same one, but for men, and he loves his. As I bought it at the end of winter, I haven't actually worn it yet. I can't wait for winter to come again so that I can put it on. I chose it for the the length, which is just right to keep my lower part warm when touring around European cities.

I'm 5 ft and this coat could not fit me better. I got it in brown and the dirt and salt wipe right off. It is a very warm and light weight coat. It's gotten me by some very cold days here in Minnesota. It has a soft sheen but not shiny. It was a bit more than I wanted to spend but it was worth every penny!

cold weather down jacket
March 28, 2009

Great jacket , comfy and warm. Lightweight warmth that has an advantage with its longer length, but not too long. Flattering fit that is true to size, unlike some of the North Face styles that are, I think, a little skimpy.

This is so worth every penny. It is pricey but I love it. It is so light that you won't feel a thing and it is extremely warm! I stayed outside at 30F with just a shirt under and felt warm. Would recommend it to anyone. The fit is slightly big. I am 5'4 and 115 and got an Xs. Wish it has more color choices.

This is a hot coat!
January 19, 2011

I've been looking at North Face jackets for a long time now. They are so expensive, that I thought I had to be SURE I would love the jacket before I would buy one. Well, it's funny how this style was on that I immediately wrote off as not what I wanted. Then I went to a store to try on a bunch of North Face styles and they had a bunch of these in brown. So just for the heck of it I tried one on and it looked AMAZING. I could not stop looking at myself! In fact, I've worn it a couple of times now, and I still can't stop checking myself out in it. Everyone says I look really skinny in it (I *am* thin, though, so I dunno). The style itself is very roomy. It seems slightly bigger than other North Face styles, but I think it's supposed to be that way because it still fits me fine in the waist.

February 23, 2011

This my first North Face jacket - and I love it!! The shiny black is subtle, not loud. The stitching is even and secure, and the zipper is high quality. I really like that there's a bottom zipper pull to vent when I need to cool off without taking off the jacket. Sizing runs a tad big, as this is not a NF fitted style. I'm on the high end of a size 4, and the small is perfect for me. Length is enough to cover my hips and rear. Overall, I have found this jacket to be windproof, waterproof, and able to stand up to the Chicago winters I must endure. I walked one of the coldest spots in the city and was perfectly warm with a cardigan sweater underneath. So happy I found Altrec! Speedy delivery. Thanks!

Not warm with feathers coming out!
March 27, 2011

This was my first North Face buy! I was looking for a warm , light jacket for NY winters. First, the size is to big. I wear S but this S is like an M to me. But the worst thing is that this Jacket is not warm enough! today it was 45 degrees in NY and I wore it outside for couple of hours and I felt how the wind was coming through this jacket and giving me chills! It's so disappointing and I can't imagine wearing this jacket in real winters. I already took the labels off and i can't return it now which I would in a second.Maybe this is why they are giving the size bigger so that you could wear a fleece underneath.Ah, the feathers are also coming out!

I think this jacket runs really large. I bought it for my daughter who usually wears a size small but it was really big on her. Also, there are no cuffs or elastic on the sleeves so sometimes her arms get cold. She likes the extra lenth.

Pros: Great design, Cons: sizing

Great Jacket that is warm and looks great.
November 24, 2008

Here in the Northern U.S. the mornings can be below 0 degrees. This jacket is long enough to keep your upper legs and buttocks warm as you sit on a cold car seat. It has a nice tapered fit in the middle and the size is very accurate. Would recommend it anyone in a cool climate

Very happy!
March 12, 2010

I had been looking to find this jacket on sale without luck, but I really wanted this particular jacket because I really liked the longer length and didn't want a shorter ski-jacket type length. I'm 5'3", 105 lbs, and this jacket fits perfectly. I couldn't find it in black so instead got the asphalt grey which turned out to be a great color and a nice change from my usual black. I just got it so I can't say how warm it will be in very, very cold weather, but in terms of looks and fit, I am very pleased.

perfect!
December 18, 2009

This is my first The North Face purchase. I wondered whether the high price tag was worth it. After wearing this coat, it definitely was worth it! This coat is lightweight so it doesn't feel bulky. But it's weight is deceiving because it is incredibly warm! Chicago winters are rough, but this jacket does the trick! I also love the length. It's long enough that it doesn't ride up and expose my backside, but not too long that it's cumbersome. Overall great jacket!

I have been buying Northfaces for years, for myself and my family and am never disappointed. I ordered it on a Thursday morning, and by early afternoon I had received a notification that it had already been shipped!

Overall a great light winter jacket for Northern temps
February 17, 2009

Although I was initially looking for the NorthFace Metropolis Jacket as it is longer, the Transit jacket was long enough (mid-thigh)and very warm considering how light it is. I live in the NYC area and despite the cold temps, this has kept me warm. The snap-on hood is convenient though the drawstrings are a bit tricky to maneuver to tighten around the head. Other than that, it's a great jacket and would recommend it.

Incomparable!
January 19, 2010

I tried at least 30 different styles of down jackets... none had all the features of this jacket...strong zipper that opens at either end..long sleeves with suede finish lining. Tape- reinforced zipper that is snag-proof...longer length for a warmer backside....and nicely fitted so I don't look "puffy!" Internal zipped pocket and a key fob in a pocket round out this great jacket. Best jacket I have ever found! Thanks!

A Fab cold weather coat !
February 10, 2011

I purchased two Women's Transit Jackets: one for myself and one for my daughter. The purchase was prompted by her need for a warm but lightweight coat that she could use in very cold or bad weather to walk 10 blocks from her home to the train station in the city on her commute to work. I purchased one in graphite grey, and one in bittersweet brown. They are both beautiful. Just the right length, below the butt but not so long they are tough to walk in. The flexibility and the lightweight feel of the coats make them a pleasure to wear! They are incredibly warm and snuggly, but so flexible that you don't feel encumbered at all. North Face knows what they are doing with cold weather gear! We love these coats !

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, comfortable!

Fabulous!!!!
December 25, 2009

North face woman transit jacket
March 07, 2011

It is a very nice jacket. I am 5'2", 115 lbs, small size fits a bit larger than expected but with some room for a sweater. It will be perfect if small size comes 3 more inches longer that will be just above my knees. It indicated on the spec as 30 inches long but the size small is only 27 inches. Otherwise, I love the warmth and lightness of the jacket.

Nice coat, a little big
February 21, 2011

I am pleased with the look and the price of this jacket. I am 5'5" and a size 4ish. I usually wear a small in North Face. This jacket is a little big through the chest. I plan to keep the coat as it fits well enough and the price was good.

I purchased this same coat last winter and loved it so much that I decided to purchase the same one again. It is very warm but the color is a little shinier than the 2009-2010 colors.

Soo toasty and soft!

Been searching a while for a 'casual' jacket but one that looks good. This is my first 'north face' jacket, and I LOVE it. I have the vintage white one and the color is perfect, not to mention the fantastic warmth, while being really light and fluffy. One of the best things I like is that even though it's a 'puffy' jacket, you don't look like the Michelan' man :)

Wonderful Winter Coat!
February 12, 2011

Love this coat! It is the perfect length, wonderfully warm, and fits very tailored. I live where it's very cold, and this coat is much warmer than it first appears. I strongly recommend it and rest assure you're getting a coat that you're going to love wearing!

Good quality, but thinner than expected
July 17, 2011

I bought this jacket for my mom. The quality of this jacket is very good, just as anyone would expect a North Face product will be. However, the jacket is a little thinner than I thought. Don't know whether it will keep my mom warm or not. I guess I can only find out when the winter comes.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Cons: Cost

warm and light - a great combination!
April 17, 2009

Love this jacket and look forward to wearing it a lot next winter. Because it's longer than the typical puffy, it is a little "dressier". Very comfortable and warm. The detachable hood adds a nice touch.

This jacket is perfect and it was very hard to find in brown. Thank you Altrec for having it in stock! It has a great cut/length and it is the perfect thickness. It's not too hot to wear inside, but yet it is warm enough for below freezing temperatures!

Looks Great

Today, Just brought a black one of this transit jacket to my wife in Hong Kong as the weather remains cool for the next week (10 degree), the extra length and the close fit make it a very fashionable jacket & looks great.

Love it

Excellent Cold Weather Jacket
March 22, 2010

Bought this jacket for my wife for a winter trip to Ohio. It is light in weight and excellent for travel. In snowy conditions in Ohio, it was warm enough in 30 degree temperatures. The fit was good - ordered her usual size.

warm!
