The North Face Nuptse Down Jacket is actually my fiancé's jacket, but I borrow it from him all the time because it is much warmer than any of the jackets I own. It is plain black, and even though it is a men's coat, a woman can wear it too without it looking out of place on her. The high lift down and designed to trap your body's heat inside of it. It is filled with 700 Fill Goose Down and features double-layer taffeta on the shoulders and a cinch cord. It is a classic jacket that can be worn with anything.
The jacket is designed lighter and smaller than many down filled jackets. It is extremely warm though. I live in Connecticut, and it gets really cold here in the winter. I hate the cold, but whenever I do have to go out in below freezing temperatures, I borrow this coat and it actually helps me tolerate the cold much better. The jacket is extremely durable and has lasted six years so far and does not even have any wear or tear on it. It is very expensive, but I guess for a jacket this well-made, a high price is to be expected. If you have the money, I would definitely recommend that you purchase an authentic North Face Nuptse Down Jacket.
