The North Face Point-it-Down Womens 2015 Review by A Better Ski

The North Face Point-It-Down Women’s Ski Jacket, is part of the North Face Steep Series that tend to come with higher end materials. This jacket is no exception as it comes with a very durable Gore Windstopper fabric that is windproof while still remaining somewhat breathable. In addition The North Face Point-It-Down has 700g down in the front and back, paired with 100g of synthetic Primaloft Gold in the sides. This provides a very warm jacket without the bulk of typical down. It is an active fit jacket that is true to size, and is quite a bit longer than most other North Face Jackets. This is great for those who have a longer torso, or prefer to have a jacket that sits lower. Despite its length, the waist still feels form fitting and with the built in snow skirt, and adjustable hem it does a great job keeping the snow and cold out. The shell is water resistant and will keep you dry in a light rain or snow, but won’t be the best for really wet snow.  The vertical chest pocket is easy to use, and a great pocket for a phone or other media device. The North Face Point-It-Down also comes with two hand warming pockets and a pass pocket on the arm. Overall The North Face Point-It-Down Ski Jacket is a great jacket for those looking for a very warm jacket, that is windproof. This jacket is quite warm, but doesn’t have the bulk of typical down jackets. It does come with some of The North Faces better materials, but of course does help to increase the price. Only other downside is breath-ability. It can get too warm in a hurry if you’re participating in a very active sport.

Jacket Size – M

Cindy’s Specs:
Normal Specs– 5’4”, 150 lbs,
Upper Body– 36” Chest, Torso Length 18” (collar bone to pant button), Shoulder Width Approx 16.5”, Arm Length 18.5” (pit to wrist)
Lower Body– 29” Waist, 41” Hips, 29.5” Inseam,  26” Thigh
Turn On’s: Active fit jackets that fit well around my chest and torso, but don’t restrict movement.
Turn Off’s: Size M jackets that are too tight in the shoulders and hips while being boxy in the waist. I really don’t like a tight fit at the hips that rides up and allows snow in my jacket and pants.  The jacket should stay in place!
