The Gotham Jacket is a bomber with a difference. Well, a couple of differences, actually. Firstly, its really warm thanks to 550-fill of responsibly-sourced down. And secondly, its made from recycled nylon so its not just durable and long lasting, but it also gives discarded plastic and new use, preventing it from ending up in landfill. The hood and faux-fur trim are both removable; there's an internal popper button placket under the zip to keep bad weather out; and there are no less than seven pockets, including a media pocket inside the chest pocket.
Ordered this jacket at 6pm on 2 October
Delivered by lunchtime on 3rd. Brilliant.
Identical to product in TNF store but £45 cheaper.
Only small issue is photo is not accurate. The yellow detail is missing. No biggy tho.

I got this jacket today and am over the moon with it. If like me once you decide you want something and do endless research into i answer some of the questions i was looking to have answered before purchasing.
I am 5 ft 11 tall and 12 stone 10 lbs for reference.
After trawling through reviews about the size of the jacket i ordered the medium and glad I did the jacket has plenty of room without looking enormous and could easily accommodate if i put another stone or more on. the bottom ribbed cuff of the jacket sits about halfway down my backside and would still sit OK on taller people without riding up above the waist line.
If i have one criticism of the jacket its the weak zipper,the pull toggle is not very big and the zip could do with larger teeth as it did pull apart while i was first trying it on,if you were to clip the press studs that would give it the extra support not to pull apart.
The zip alone is only reason i have gave this jacket a 4 star rating instead of 5.
I ordered graphite grey and its a nice colour instead of black like every other jacket i own. I can say that it is a lot darker than the colour shown on the North face website and in my opinion a lot nicer. For a true colour picture do a Google image search and their are a few images of guys actually wearing it and the colour is true to life.
It looks really smart on and for me is the better option than the longer McMurdo Parka which is huge in every way and needs a room of its own to be stored during summer.
if you're a similar size to me don't do what I did and toy with the idea of buying a large it will drown you. I think i could have even got away with a small at a push.
Delivery was excellent and came when it said it would.
I would recommend this jacket and buying from Outdoor kit.
A great experience from start to finish! I purchased the coat after looking at many websites and eventually plumped for outdoorkit.co.uk as the price of the Gotham jacket was the best I had found, plus the reviews that I read on TrustPilot suggested they are a reliable retailer, so I decided to purchase the jacket in January 2013. The webiste was really easy to navigate and the payment process was straightforward. The jacket arrived on the first business day after I ordered and the quality of the Gotham jacket is fantastic, keeping me very warm, and having the option to remove the fur or the entire hood is also a bonus as it may not always be cold enough for the hood. A great webiste and a great coat, thanks!!!
Got this jacket for xmas last year. I'm hoping for very cold weather so I can wear it! This thing is so warm you need to be careful not to wear too much underneath. Looks the business, excellent value and will last me years.
Great buy. Amazingly warm, very practical everyday coat which offers plenty of storage space for as many iPods, iPhones, wallets and keys as you could wish to carry. Worth the price tag and couldn't be happier with my purchase.
Firstly may I say that this company's customer and delivery service is unbelievable, it is the best that I have experienced.
With regards to the Gotham jacket - it is brilliant!
This is fantastic, I ordered it & it was with me the next day. The jacket is very well made as expected; it has plenty of pockets and, wow, it looks high quality in black. Cant wait to try it out this winter, I'm very happy. Thank you Outdoor Kit for the useful information on your site as well as being value for money.
What can I say, I'm speechless! I ordered the jacket at approx 14.30 hrs and it had arrived on my doorstep the following day by lunch time. What a service! I needed the jacket for the weekend as I was going away and was pondering with the idea it wasn't going to come in time. Would just like to say a big thank you to the Outdoor Kit team for getting my awesome new jacket to me in time to keep me warm and looking cool for my weekend away.
The jacket is first class, love the design and anyone who is considering getting one go careful with the sizing they are on the large size. I'm normally XL so I went for large on this occasion and it fits perfect. Thanks, Ian
Before I review the jacket I just want to say a huge thanks to Andy at outdoorkit.co.uk I ordered my jacket online and was unsure about which size to pick. I emailed outdoorkit and got a very prompt reply from Andy. We discussed the jacket and sizes and the returns policy just in case the jacket wasn't the fit I was looking for. I placed my order on a Monday and it arrived the very next day! Throughout the entire process of me inquiring about the jacket to me placing the order and receiving it I was kept informed throughout the entire process. Absolutely first-class service from all the guys and girls at outdooorkit.co.uk! Many thanks and I shall be recommending you to all my friends :)
Ok as for the jacket itself, what can I say it is absolutely gorgeous. I have a few North Face jacket as well as a North Face goose filled down bodywarmer. However, this is my first insulated jacket.
The quality of the jacket and construction is what you would expect from a company like The North Face and as such it is very well made and it is also practical, warm, light and durable.
Once on the jacket feels great, snug yet with plenty of room inside and it feels warm and very comfortable.
This is a great jacket to wear and to be seen in on the street as the distinctive style of it makes it look different enough from other North Face jackets.
If you carry a few gadgets around like I do then you will not be disappointed with the storage options on this thing! There's literally a pocket from everything!
The hood is insulated too and the fur liner (which is removable) really sets the jacket off and adds to the style of the garment.
All in all, I am VERY pleased with my purchase. It's possibly the nicest jacket I have bought to date (and I have bought lots of jackets!). Overall an absolutely fantastic jacket, that coupled with the famous North Face brand name and design make this jacket an absolutely must buy if you're in the market for an insulated jacket. You will not be disappointed and you won't be disappointed from the service from outdoorkit either! Thanks again and keep up the good work!
