A classic, coveted down jacket redesigned for 2011 with a more modern, flattering slim fit. Constructed with ample 700-fill goose down, this high-loft down jacket delivers plush warmth in brutal conditions. Double-layer taffeta paneling at shoulders provides added durability from abrasion caused by pack carry.
Named for the rugged peak just over a mile southwest of Mount Everest, The North Face Nuptse is the go-to down jacket among cold weather activity enthusiasts. The Nuptse jacket is chocked full of 700 goose down fill, providing superior thermal insulation. Not only is the North Face Nuptse Jacket supremely warm, the high loft down filling makes it super lightweight and ultra compressible, so it packs easy and won’t weigh you down.
The styling of the Nuptse Jacket is as classic as classic can be. This puffy, down jacket features a straight yoke across the chest for a better, more flattering fit, double layer taffeta on the shoulders to reduce wear from your pack, and adjustable wrist cuffs and a hem cinch-cord to keep the cold out. With the Nuptse jacket, you don’t have to worry about the snow soaking your down, either. The North Face Nuptse Jacket features the North face Durable Water Repellent finish on both the nylon body of the jacket and the zipper. The North Face Nuptse Jacket also has pockets galore with two zippered hand pockets and an internal zip pocket to keep valuables safe. The Nuptse is also zip-in compatible with other North Face jackets.
The North Face Nuptse Vest provides all of the warmth and comfort of the Nuptse jacket, and none of the sleeves. The Nuptse vest is great for layering over a fleece or softshell jacket, and features the same high loft 700 goose down fill to keep your core toasty warm. The Nuptse vest is also zip-in compatible and features the Durable Water Repellent finish.
