    The fleece is fine, but it's VERY thin. It feels a little bit like it was very cheaply made. I could get a fleece like that at Old Navy for a fraction of the price. If price isn't an issue and you're a brand-name addict, and the thinness of the jacket doesn't detract, then this is probably a good buy for you. Wasn't a good one for me, so I returned.

    Flatters, but thinner than expected

      I just got this in the mail and decided to return it for a heavier fleece. Its a great fit, but ultra lightweight and not what I'm looking for right now. I didn't take it outside, but I'm confident it would work very well as a inner layer under a vest or outershell for the winter. Very soft. I am 5'2" 115 and have a short torso, and this fit just right (not snug, enough wiggle room, yet flattering) in a size small.

      Love it!

        I love how this jacket looks and fits. The fleece is very soft, and it is form fitting. It isn't particularly thick, but it's great for fall and spring. The sleeves are also pretty long and the monkey cuffs cover your hands nicely on brisk mornings.

        Flatters and performs

          I bought this fleece for hiking during the shoulder seasons and as a layering option for snowshoeing. I generally wear a medium and the medium fits me perfectly. The cut is form fitting and flattering, but not at all tight. I have short arms for my height and the sleeves are predictably a little long, so for those without munchkin arms, the length should be just fine. This fleece washes well with no special care. I'm very pleased with this purchase.

          Awesome light-weight fleece w/thumb holes!

            The North Face Borealis Fleece Jacket is an awesome addition to my wardrobe. It's warm enough to wear as an only external layer in the Fall, and is a great insulating mid-layer for colder weather. The thumb holes keep it in place under gloves and a shell, and keep my hands toasty warm. There's only one small pocket on the left hip, but it's the perfect size for your keys, ID, and lip goo when you're out on an early morning run in chilly weather. Two thumbs up!

            Is the Borealis just a new version of last season's Aurora Pipestone? The look the same except that the Aurora had 2 side pockets?? Does anyone know?

            Is the color black a real black. I ordered another style North Face fleece jacket the the color is a washed out (grayish) black. I wondered if the color black is consistent across styles.

            I have a long torso and was wondering if this jacket will fit? I have the Denali and its a bit short on me....

            Best Answer

            The Denali is a much different fit from the Borealis- the Borealis is a performance fit, so it is much more trim in the upper body than the Denali, and it is also longer. I think it is a great cut if you are looking for a more active cut. It is a much different application however, the Borealis is a light 100 weight fleece, where the Denali is heavy 300 weight, so quite different in almost every aspect.
