2018 North Face Sickline Jacket Review by A Better Ski


Lets take a look at the North Face Sickline jacket.  My first impression of this jacket was I thought it looked and felt really cool. I’m a huge fan of blue and brown together even though some fashion people will tell you that they don’t go together. But enough about trivial matters. . . This is a serious jacket.

Tester: Dan

Size: L

Waterproofing and Breath-ability:   The North Face Sickline jacket claims to have a 25psi rating after 20 washings.  This is pretty waterproof. Rain comes down between 1-7 psi so this jacket should keep you dry even in a rain storm. I’ll see if i can test this out  and I’ll get back to you.  This jacket also has good breath-ability and two meshed pit vents to for extra versatility.

Warmth:  The North Face Sickline jacket has an 80 G Mapped PrimaLoft® Black Insulation In Body; 60 G In Hood And Sleeves.  This is plenty of insulation for days down below freezing.  If temperatures drop down into the 20’s or below, make sure you have a couple functional under-layers for extra warmth..

Fit:  I liked the way this jacket fit and felt.  The North Face Sickline jacket had a large and loose feel to it allowing for unrestricted movement. It fit my shoulders well and hung low past my waist line. I joked in the video that it has a “snowboarder” feel to it since it felt so big (even though it felt like it fit me).  Also i really liked the way the hood fit with my helmet on.  There was virtually no movement restriction for my  head and no rub on my chin which is rare.

Features:  Standard fit; Dedicated, helmet-compatible hood; Snap-away powder skirt with gripper elastic; Zippered chest and hand pockets; Internal media pocket with media port; Two internal, stretch goggle pockets; Underarm vents; Zippered wrist pocket with goggle wipe; Jacket-to-pant integration

Bottom Line:  I think North Face nailed it with this jacket. It has a great cut and look while providing all of the amenities a good ski jacket needs like warmth, breath-ability and weatherproofing.  It has a nice easy fit and a stylish look.  One of my favorite jackets so far this year!
