This fleece is incredible, thin and close fitted, very warm, moves with you and feels great. The Windstopper logo is on the sleeve and it does not lie. This is my go to outer layer jacket I usually pair with a feather-down jacket or similar in temperatures less than 20. My only real issue to this jacket is that because it is fleece and that after a wash or two the zipper warps a little. The softshell elbow reinforcement on the jacket is a start idea.

This is a great backpack for everyday use to long distance travel to hiking. It fits everything you need if you know how to pack well, there are several compartments that have multiple smaller pockets or sleeves for organization. Durable construction and my favorite feature is that it is made to put the weight comfortably on my shoulders and not the lower back.

This is a close fitted jacket really build for climbers. The hood is a great doom shape for a helmet and I truly like the sleeve's length and thumb holes to cover most of the hand. After a few washes the stuffing does try to pop out, which is my only issue. Otherwise this is a smooth, warm and comfortable jacket. Its the Summit Series from The North Face so the fit is a half size to a size smaller then the normal TNF products.

I got a pair of these boots and thought they were fantastic out of the box. Looked great and felt great, water-proof and gripped the ground very well. After a while I took these boots up a 14er, they did not preform well at all. I later used them in the Guadalupe National Park and they fell apart even more. The color faded rapidly as well. For the price these boots were not worth it for me for the small time I had them.

I got these hikers to replace my disappointing LOWA boots. These boots really cling to your feet well and fit a narrow-ish foot as its standard fit. They were comfortable from the start and out matched LOWA's Renegade boots in every way. I used these boots until the sole was worn nearly flat. They are water-proof and breathable. The North Face seems to have given up on this boot though with reducing the variety of colors, altering the design and not distributing the boot to stores outside of the North Face itself.

I got these boots to replace my beaten out North Face hikers. I wanted a durable and comfortable replacement. This boot is very well made, the leather is very stiff, but repels nearly everything you throw at it. It is indeed water proof and is fairly comfortable. My main issue is that it can be very roomy in the shoe even if it fits your foot size. In the beginning the leather is so stiff it is difficult to tie up. I recommend a leather conditioner or patience for this boot.

So first off to be fair I have the "2013 model" and not the most current version of this jacket. This is an interesting jacket for sure. I was very torn between this one and a marmot fleece for a mid layer. I decided this jacket for its clearance/sale price, fit and color. I can safely say this fleece is very comfortable. It is fitted, very thin and very light, yet warm and moves with you. The material is smooth and does not cling to a softshell jacket, but does stay where it is when wearing it. The collar is a little higher than I like, but that doesn't really matter. My big issue with this jacket is the price. I like this jacket, but if I had bought it at full price I would have returned it. It needs to be at least 50 bucks cheaper in my opinion for what it is and does. I bought a small and it fits close, but not tight. The sleeves are a little annoying, but the length and closure keeps in the heat.

This glove is surprisingly warm for a softshell glove. I truly like cuff that closes to keep a low profile. This also doesn't allow the cuff to ride up during activities, unlike the older North Face softshell Apex gloves. I really like the textured rubber grip on the fingers; however they only lasted a month or so before they started to rub off. I recently bought another pair in a different color and that pair seems to hold up better.

I am a big fan of TNF products and was looking for a warm, brown colored hoodie to fit under my TNF softshell. I am 5'11" and 170lbs and purchased a small. It is fairly warm and I love the thumb holes in the sleeves so the hoodie would cover the palms. The fit was off however; for an athletic hoodie it is very baggy in the arms and lower torso. The hoodie has a loose helmet hood that zips up to cover the throat and mouth. When you do not wear the hood the ends that cover the mouth really get in the way. Love the chest pocket and the material the hoodie is made from. It is a perfect item for someone that does a lot of vertical climbing in moderate weather and likes an athleticbut, loose fit that is about 6'1".

Hello, I am trying to decide between the North Face Apex Bionic soft shell and the Marmot Altitude soft shell jacket. I basicly need a good soft shell that I can handle occasional rock climbing and not be in the way and be good for easy hiking too. I am 5'11" with an athletic build and the smalls for both fit just fine. Does anyone have any suggestions?
Thank you.
