The North Face Bombay 2016 Review by A Better Ski

The North Face Bombay is a great mid-layer or after ski jacket. It’s a warm insulated jacket, and would make a great insulating layer for those who ski in colder climates.

The North Face Bombay Insulated Mid-Layer Ski Jacket Review

Tester: Matt

Size: S

Matt’s Specs: Sizing Info

Waterproofing and Breathability: The North Face Bombay is a mid-layer jacket without a waterproof or breathable layer. It’s not a bad jacket to wear under a technical shell.   

Warmth: The North Face Bombay is a great insulating layer for those who run a bit on the cold side. It’s a warm jacket that would be great under a technical shell. Some of The North Face 3-in-1 jackets will have a similar layer built in to the jacket, but for those who need a warm layer under a shell, the Bombay is a great option.

Fit: The North Face Bombay has a standard fit that is true to size. It’s a very comfortable jacket that would fit great under a technical shell. It’s heavily insulated, but doesn’t feel super bulky. The jacket does run a bit shorter, but it would be fine for under a longer shell.

Features: The North Face Bombay is a pretty standard mid-layer jacket. It’s meant to add some warmth when layering and doesn’t really have any technical features. You could wear it as a ski jacket if you wanted to, but it would have to be a very dry and mild day.
