The North Face Women's Upandover Triclimate Jacket is a waterproof insulated jacket that can be worn in more ways than one. The Upandover Triclimate is all about versatility, pairing two jackets together, or wearing each separately for a total of three useful jackets for various weather situations. The liner is all about warmth and insulation, a 30D nylon dobby taffeta outer fabric with 80 grams of Heatseeker insulation packed inside. Worn alone it can take on a dry, cool days, or zip it into the shell for ultimate winter snowball fights. The outer jacket is waterproof and breathable, so you can battle rain, snow, and sleet with the best of them. The HyVent 2L fabric has a subtle heathered woven look and will keep you dry without the clammy feeling on the inside. Worn alone it will work in fall, mild winters, and spring, but bolstered with the zip-in lining jacket and you're ready for a full-blown winter snow. The pit-zips release excess heat when you're getting too warm due to snowboarding, fort building, or other activities. Throw on the adjustable hood and cinch it down to protect yourself from the oncoming attack. Adults can have fun too.

"Color not as expected, but otherwise adequate"
I ordered the Greystone Blue Heather, and from the picture I expected the shell to be more gray. It actually appears to be navy. Otherwise I very much like the fabric of the shell and color of the inside layer. Warmth wise it seems like it would be adequate for most winter weather/elements though not the warmest I've tried on. I ordered a size up to allow for layers underneath and it fits very well. Overall I've decided to return this coat in favor of a down jacket just based on personal preference.
Pretty good coat and kind of cute, but I wasn't a huge fan of the material. While the outer layer was pretty soft but felt like it would keep water out, the inner layer wasn't super warm. I was kind of hoping for Patagonia nano warmth from the under layer... kind of unfair expectations considering! It just didn't cut it for me, but a completely fine jacket for people who ski a little or want it to wear around town. I don't think it's going to work on very windy/ icy/ rainy runs or in super cold conditions.I still gave it 4/5 because for the price, it really delivers a great product! It's a good bang for the buck.
