Why are North Face jackets so popular?

My daughter wants one. I think that they are ugly. The price is ugly too. Thanks

  • No idea maybe the same reason Skytops are in style. Both are gross.

  • yes! The price is ugly lol! Its just the same thing with name brands, they are great at making coats for really cold weather.

  • They're still popular?! I remember all the cool, rich kids wore North Faces when I was in middle school 13 years ago. That's why I boycotted them :)

  • The are not popular where I live. No kid would be caught dead in one. It's Hurley, Billabong, Roxie, etc...

    Check Ebay for a better price or someone who's kid out grew one that almost new!

  • Both my girls have them. Yes, they are ugly but quite popular. I was impressed with how warm they were. They looked like just a small light jacket but I found that they are really really warm. I think its about brand name. If I had a nickle for every teen I saw come out of the high school in a black north face jacket and a pair of sperry shoes...I would be rich...Including my own daughter. I don't ask why, I just buy what she wants... in a reasonable manner. We have always bought brand names so this was no different. I usually resell their stuff. I ended up giving the black one to my niece.

  • **whoops...I meant nickel** sorry that bugs me.

  • I have one and it is not ugly. They are pricey. My jacket and pants keep me toasty warm and waterproof when I am skiing.
