For The North Face Nuptse 2 Down Jacket, The North Face took the classic Nuptse and gave it a slightly slimmer silhouette so you don't look all puffed up when you go outside. Behind the durable double-layer fabric is a power punch of 700-fill goose down. Even if you're more Lambeau Field than Texas Stadium, the Nuptse Down Jacket can keep you warm in the nastiest conditions. Use the zip-in compatibility to make it a mid layer and see just how warm you can be.

"Goose down is a type of insulation. Gore-Tex is a waterproof/breathable lining that goes inside of the jacket. The lining itself does not provide any warmth. Goose down is the warmest insulation that there is. Having a jacket with both features is the best that you can get. This jacket itself is not waterproof, it is only water-resistant. If you are skiing, you should look for something with a waterproof/breathability rating. You should check out the Patagonia Primo Down Insulated GORE-TEX Ski Jacket!"
