Thomas M.wrote a review of The North Face Classic Denali Fleece Jacket - Men's on March 20, 2010
The Denali's Polartec 300 series fleece is a little bulky but it does offer respectable warmth. The nylon paneling at the chest gives some wind blocking comfort but a shell (preferably with zip in capability) is the only way to go in any wet windy weather. Snag-free zippers, elastic cuffs, pit vents with a draw waist cord are definitely nice combined with their life time product guarantee. In reality this jacket is trendy with lots of pocket space but not designed alone for real outdoor use with varying weather conditions. If a wind stopper water repellent fleece is what you are looking for there are other better options. On sale at Backcounty I consider it a respectable purchase.
