North Face Nuptse vest and alternative recommendations?

Does anyone here own a Nuptse vest? If so how is the sizing? I've read from a few people that the sizing runs large and to size down. However I've also come across a handful of reviewers that have mentioned these vests are 'true to size'.

I usually wear a size 40 (M) and generally like a good snug fit (not tight - but definitely not loose).

if anyone here owns one and can share their experience and maybe upload a pic or two of the fit, that'll be great. Also any other winter vest recommendations for those that have tried any?

I have one. I'm female and I find it fits true to size.

Do you find that it hugs the body snugly, or do you fit there's enough room inbetween the vest to wear a couple of thick sweaters?


Any guys here with Nuptse vest experience?

I usually wear it over a thick sweater to walk the dog. I could certainly fit another thick sweater under there.

I like clothes to fit snug so sounds like I may have to size down if that's the case.

I bought one last year and felt it was a little big. Not sure if it's a whole size too big but on the big side.

The more I look at it, the more I like it, I guess.

Neat. Myself, not a fan of full print graphics especially on outerwear but just curious for a woman's take on it.
The 3 north face logo patches and SUPREME text on the hood look a bit much imo.
