If you're sick of your fleece hording sweaty odors after your hikes, you'll be stoked on The North Face Women's Borealis Fleece Jacket. The North Face made this fleece with a small amount of carbon (from bamboo) which adds natural anti-odor and wicking properties to the Borealis. This layer's recycled polyester fleece has an anti-pilling face so it won't look like you've been attacked by an army of small yarn-balls after a few months. Since harmful sun rays can penetrate clothes, The North Face made sure the Borealis Fleece has UPF 30-rated sun protection fabric.

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.

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?

Responded on

Hi Jen - they are pretty close. You are correct that the Aurora had two pockets, but other than that the changes are mostly cosmetic (the Borealis is made from a new recycled fleece)- they have a very similar weight and feel.
Hope this helps

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.

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 Responded on

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.
Hope this help-

What's warmer, this jacket or the TKA 100 Masonic Hooded Fleece Jacket?

Responded on

Hi - they are both 100 weight, so I wouldn't call one warmer than the other. The only edge that you can give to the Masonic is the hood if it gets really chilly

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.

Responded on

Hi, Pamela. I'm not sure. I've scoured this page for context clues, but I can't find where you're reading "old style fit." I can say that this jacket is very fitted and very feminine. It's a great light jacket and perfect for layering. Hope this helps.

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.

I hiked to Lake Blanche in Big Cottonwood Canyon near Salt Lake City this October wearing the TNF Borealis Fleece jacket and it was the perfect choice in 45 degree weather with no shell.
