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!

            Amazing fit! Better than regular thermoball!

            • Amazing fit
            • Stylish
            • Warm

            Cons

            • Not as warm as regular thermoball

            Best Uses

            • Any!

            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!!!

                              My wife bought this jacket for me for our upcoming trips to Tasmania and Alaska. It's lightweight, warm, stylish and easy to pack.i even wear it to work on casual days.

                                    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.
