I have spent the past 10 years of my life cold and unhappy. My daily existence has been filled with darkness and despair. Hard. A struggle. My hands? Always icy. The tip of my nose? Like an icicle. This jacket has changed all that. I now stride through life with renewed vigor! No longer am I like a hibernating garter snake, slowed by the icy winter. I now have the potency, the swiftness, the energy of... a Rhesus monkey! This jacket is the best thing to have happened to me in my life. Perhaps, but only perhaps, matched by my marriage and the births of my two children. It's close. I'm not sure which I am more thankful for. Never have I had a jacket that I have loved more than this one. It is stretchy! The cuffs are tight, so as to ensure that the precious heat your body has generated does not escape through the arm holes! The zipper is amazing and convenient. Now that I think about it, the jacket is better than my second child, but I think I prefer my first child to this coat. There you have it. Buy it. Love it. It is life changing.

DO NOT BUY UNTIL THEY FIX CONSTRUCTION

I am very disappointed that I have to leave this review again. Apparently TNF got rid of all the reviews for the Thermoball Stretch from earlier this year.

I am very disappointed that I have to leave this review again. Apparently TNF got rid of all the reviews for the Thermoball Stretch from earlier this year.

First of all don't buy this particular model of the Thermoball. The construction is terrible. All of the threads will start snapping if you actually stretch in the jacket. I own a Thermoball vest, Thermoball hoodie, Thermoball pullover, and a Thermoball shacket...it is a fantastic technology but the stretch version is terrible.

That being said, I really want this product once they fix it, so please fix it! Stretchiness would be a great addition for those chilly nights when I want to get a few more climbs in with my headlamp!

Comments about The North Face Stretch Thermoball Jacket Men's, TNF Black, S:

I don't know why the other reviewers rated this so poorly, but I have a super positive experience with this jacket. I'm a gear junkie and avid outdoors guy. I have a regular thermoball jacket and 2 of the thermoball stretch models.
The thermoball stretch has a slim fit, making it way more stylish to wear around town, and making it sleeker when using as a mid layer while backpacking or winter hiking. I love the fit! The regular thermoball is way too boxy for me.
The mate finish on both my jackets is great, I think it makes it more wearable in more situations for someone like me that doesn't like flashy colors/clothing.
The construction is awesome, no problems with zipppers or with seams coming apart.
I have hiked multiple long distance hikes in New Zealand and Europe with the thermoball stretch. Lots of abuse and still looks great after a wash.

One bad thing, I don't think it's as warm as my favorite Patagonia Nano Puff. The multiple stitch lines on the thermoball seem to let in the cold more than a nano puff....however, sometimes you don't want or need something that's super warm. Even though it's not as warm as my Patagonia Nano Puff, I find it regulates heat better.

I can't wait for more colors to come out so I can buy another. North face, PLEASE MAKE A HOODED THERMOBALL STRETCH!!!

                          I've used this jacket for three weeks and it is amazing. It looks great on the street (according to my wife) and it held up well on a climb in the white mountains as a mid layer. It is definitely an athletic cut - I would recommend trying it on. The matte finish is super sharp. Wish it could fold into itself to make a pillow like other versions - but still 5 stars.

                                I'm surprised by the level of warmth this lightweight jacket has. I've used it in the high 20's (above 27 degrees F.) to Low 30's and was just fine with nothing but a tshirt under it. It's without question, warmer than my softshell Apex Bionic jacket in those temps..
                                The fact that this can be stored in it's own pocket is an awesome feature, for longer hikes or the occasional 14er if you want to put it away until the temps take a plunge.
                                It's also very versatile in that you can even use it for daily\casual city wear too!
                                Nice work TNF!

                                  I bought the hooded version of this jacket from a different store, and had my hopes up big time. When it arrived, I was astounded and thought "wow, that's amazing. It looks like there's no insulation". Then I put it on and thought "wow, it feels like there's almost no insulation". Finally I wore it outside and realized "wow, it FEELS like there's no insulation". We had a cold front move in the week I got this jacket, so it was perfect for testing. It kept me warm between 40/50 degrees. Below 40 degrees, I needed to layer underneath. By the time it hit 15 degrees, I abandoned the down jacket for a fleece and hardshell. What's the point of a down jacket that you can only use in the late spring?

                                  Truth be told, my Patagonia "better jacket" fleece is much warmer than this "down" jacket, and it's less bulky. This is the first Northface product I've ever bought, and probably the last.

                                      This jacket has been given to me as a present. I loved it right away. I have many similar jackets from different brands, but this one (thermoball stretch) is by far the best jacket I've ever had. Breathable and warm, at all weather conditions from California to Toronto, Canada. The only reason I've not given the jacket all 5 stars it's because it's threads can easily be caught and tear. But, I trust that TNF will fix it and provide me with a replacement if I need it. Great jacket!
