Review by: McKenzie Long ⋅ Senior Review Editor, OutdoorGearLab ⋅ November 24, 2012  
The North Face Nuptse Jacket has been discontinued. It has been replaced by the North Face Nuptse 2 Jacket - Women's.

The original Nuptse review: If you are in the market for something warmer than a light alpine down layer such as the Mountain HardWear Nitrous, Patagonia Down Sweater, or The North Face Catalyst, then the Nuptse is a classic choice. It is warmer and more durable than the thinner alpine jackets at the expense of being heavier and slightly more bulky, but it still can be stuffed into a stow pocket and packed along with you on a cold outdoor adventure. If you need something even warmer and more water-resistant than the Nupste, go with the Valandre Split S - Women's. If you are on a budget, The North Face Aconcagua jacket is even less expensive than the Nuptse and has a similar every day functionality.
