Is the North Face Nuptse worth it?

The Nuptse is one of the cheapest product we tested in this review. The lack of a hood and its relative heaviness make it a bit less desirable for backcountry use compared to the other parkas we tested. The Nutpse is, however, made from durable fabrics and provides 700 fill down for reasonable warmth in a classic look.

Why is The North Face Nuptse so popular?

Some of the popularity is the pandemic effect. A jacket designed for braving the elements is infinitely more desirable when leisure time is limited to outside. It also fits into a yearning for comfort in a year of anxiety – wearing a coat that doubles up as a duvet is reassuring.

Is the Nuptse 700 warm?

Our testing shows it’s decently warm, but cut small around the hips which lets in air. Very thick fabric used in the Nuptse. The shell fabric is treated with DWR and works well. Solid zippered hand pockets (that are insulated), and an internal zippered stash pocket.

Is the Nuptse oversized?

Generally speaking, The North Face jackets will fit true to size across the range but there are a few pieces such as the Nuptse jackets that come up slightly small due to being tailored towards a fashion audience.

Is North Face Nuptse good for winter?

Overall, this Nuptse jacket is exactly what you’d expect; great quality, warm and comfortable. It runs true to size but I’d recommend going up one if you’re heading to the snow as you’ll want the room to wear base layers and hoodies etc under there.

How can you tell a fake North Face Nuptse?

The authentic has rounded corners, while the fake is straight with sharp corners. Apart from that, try to examine the text stamped on the metal part of the tag. It should be well visible, and, as you can see on the fake VS real Nuptse jacket comparison, the letters should also be a little wider.

How warm is a Nuptse?

It’s made from water-resistant fabric and packed with 700 fill down to keep you warm and toasty whatever the weather. My North Face Nuptse Jacket was put to the test above the arctic circle in Lofoten, Norway where temperatures average around -1ºC (but when the wind picks up it feels like -11ºC).

Do Puffer Jackets lose their puff?

While the jacket dries, the tennis balls will bounce around the machine, constantly hitting the jacket like you would fluff a pillow back into shape. Your puffer coat will come out of the dryer looking fluffy and new, in perfect condition to be stored away for the winter.
