TNF Nuptse is sold out everywhere! I took a chance and bought this men's one from Footprint. It shipped quickly and was delivered in about a week! I usually wear women's medium, but men's small was perfect! (Mens XS probably would have fit too, but I like leaving room for layering). Jacket passed LC from multiple people. So happy I was able to finally get one. Wouldn't be surprised if even Footprint runs out of Nuptses.

Perfect and fast shipping for the holidays

Perfect and fast shipping for the holidays !! I was looking for this jacket everywhere and it was completely sold out ! I was not familiar with this site so at first I was hesitant let me tell you I ordered it Friday night and received it on Saturday morning !!!! I am super happy with quality and material , I am guessing this place is in New York . Quality is great I am a very happy customer!! Oh and this was literally one week before Christmas not even amazon was this quick

Took a chance, and it’s actually legit!

At the time of writing this review, nowhere else was this Nuptse available. If anyone’s wondering whether or not they should take a chance, DO IT. I was iffy at first until I kept reading reviews.

As for the Nuptse, it runs big so size down. I’m 5’10, 180 lbs and ordered a small this time around, and it fits perfectly. I ordered a medium before on Nordstrom a couple years back I believe, but it made me look too much like a marshmallow or the Michelin man, so I suggest you try it in-store if you’re lucky.

The item came in a week (I opted for the free shipping) and used Shop Pay at checkout. You can see live updates of where the item’s at on a map (plus the company plants a tree every time you use it at checkout etc.) It also has a UPS tracking link but looking at the map was fun and more descriptive. Despite the message you get that Footprint might mess up occasionally and accidentally send the wrong size, the Nuptse came in the right sizing. Definitely going to purchase more items on here in the future.

**For those of you wondering: this is not a sponsored post. I just thought that it was worth my time sharing a positive review about this company! Hopefully you have a great experience as well :)
