The North Face Women's Transit Down Jacket is a lightweight down jacket for the daily winter commute. The 550 fill down jacket features a slightly longer length, just past the hips, to keep your upper half content when walking through the city winter-scape. The nylon taffeta shell is abrasion-resistant to protect the down insulation inside and is coated with a durable water repellent finish for water-resistance. The hood pulls up to protect the hair you spent hours on and keep your ears warm, but can also be removed for a different style and mild winters. The quilting pattern throughout holds the down in place to prevent cold spots and also creates a slimming effect.
