Warm Pullover

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times
  • Fit:Runs large

Like this a lot. Waffle texture on the outside/thick fleece layer on the inside. On cold days--I Wear this over a long sleave underlayer...toss on a vest & I'm good to go. Runs large--for example: I normally wear a large--but a Medium fit me. It's a quality item...looks like it will last.

Inconsistent sizing

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times
  • Fit:Runs small

I bought two of these for my husband in different colors. He has a number of other a North a Face fleece shirts, all size medium. The charcoal fleece in this style fits nicely, but the blue one fit very poorly. I was surprised to find these ran small, as previous reviews said they ran big. We kept the gray fleece and returned the blue one. I would be hesitant to buy another one due to the inconsistency.

Good fall jacket

  • Familiarity:I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
  • Fit:True to size

I got this jacket for my gfs father for Christmas. He was very pleased with it and liked how light weight it was. Works great as a additional layer under a winter jacket or by itself for football games in the fall.

NOT good quality

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times
  • Fit:Runs large

Washed according the manufacture's recommendations and has a crazy amount of lent balls ALL over it. North face material shouldn't do this. I bought 2 of is fine and the other is horrible on how it came out in the wash. Would NOT buy another. Would like to return the one I have and exchange for something different.

Great layering piece

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times
  • Fit:True to size

I have used this several times as a layering fleece on colder days and nights and slept in it when really cold out camping, Soft comfortable and no pockets to get in way as layering or sleeping in. Has not pilled like a few other fleece jackets. Got it as a gift, but would get again.

Great jacket, very versatile

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit:Runs large

Perfect jacket for between 35-70 degrees out. Also looks nice enough to wear out to a low key dinner or drinks with friends. Only problem is it runs a tad large. Well, that, and they attract pet hair/etc much worse than regular fleece does. I now own five of these fleeces, so that should tell you how much I like them.

Good product, colors deceiving

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

Overall this is a good fleece. It's a bit heavier than my tka 100, and therefore, warmer. It's got a decent cut, and is very comfortable. It also has a grid texture.

Size: I'm 6'0" and 165 give or take, athletic build. I bought a medium and it fits nicely, still loose but not overly so. I wear a tka 100 in a large, and it fits similarly to that.

Color: This is the reason for the 4 stars. I first bought the asphalt grey to diversify my black wardrobe. The online pic shown is deceiving. In real life, it's lighter with an almost tinge of green. It's a really weird looking grey, not very nice in my opinion. The stitching also was more apparent in this color. I returned it for black (yes the logo is white, not black as north face seems to do more of now), which is your typical black. Oh well, black goes with anything.

Finally, backcountry was fantastic throughout the process. They had a 20% off and free 2 day shipping when I purchased the grey. When I wanted to exchange it, that sale had expired. Just 1 call (and 10 secs of being on hold) and I had the black fleece being shipped at the sale price with free shipping again! Thanks backcountry! Return shipping was free also, of course.
