Love love love this fleece. Originally bought the blue one but didn't really like the color. BackCountry Customer service were excellent when it came to returning/exchanging it for the grey/charcoal one. This fleece is a great buy!!

Posted on

My 2008 Style# A193 Denali fleece is substantially larger than the current AMYN Style. It fits extremely differently - the arms are much much more roomier. Did North Face change the fit of Denali's when they revamped them in 2009? There seems to be a whole size difference (the newer AMYN Style is smaller).

My North Face Denali

So far, I am happy with my New North Face Denali! My wife and 2 of my daughters have them and so I needed to get with the program and get my own.

I purchased two Denali jackets for myself, they fit great and look really nice on me. I am really glad I found your site. Great service and shipping. Really happy. Thank you

Bought it as a replacement...

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

Yes, the Denali is a bit cheesy in these days of windproof, breathable, soft shells, but as a utility layer it can not be beat. There is no other heavy weight fleece jacket with 4 zippered pockets, reinforced shoulders and elbows and pit zips.

This is replacing another Denali I have had for 20 years...literally...it's been back to TNF for trim replacement and has worn so thin that I'm surprised it hasn't fallen apart.

As an outer layer it's great alone for hiking, sailing, biking, etc in milder weather. As a layer it's great under a shell awesome for all but the coldest, windiest, cloudy days.

Under a spray top it works perfect for mountain lake sailing where days start cool and calm, ramp up to gale force, t-storms roll in cooling things 50 degrees and then back to sunny and calm for derigging and beers. Reach under the spray top and unzip the pits and air things out without losing a boat length.

The reinforced elbows don't readily absorb beer from the bar. The reinforced shoulders won't get cut from ski edges.

I wanted to find something equal to replace the old one but couldn't find anything nearly equal. It was awesome when Backcountry had black on sale and I was actually online to find it. Black (almost) NEVER goes on sale. Thanks Backcountry!

Similar to skiing...it's not a date, it's a sport...The Denali isn't sexy, but it's a great multipurpose 'tool'...

love this jacket

My seventeen year old son is very hard to buy for. He is very tall and very thin and doesn't usually like to wear brand name anything. He didn't ask for this particular item but I bought it in hopes that he would give up wearing his two hoodies to school and actually wear something warm. This was the perfect gift! It is warm enough to put another hoodie under and still be warm. I live in the Midwest and we have pretty harsh winters and my son walks about 7 blocks back and forth to school. This is the perfect gift for a teenager. It maintains his "coolness" without actually having to put on a coat.

Not another Denali

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

Everyone in the world has one . They are cool I guess if you want to be part of that crowd . These jackets do not breath at all and are decent enough for warmth for around 40-45 but would not reco for layering for serious Mountaineering. They also don't dry fast and are bulky and heavy . Besides that they look decent enough for tooling around with the rest of the wannabes .

Nice Fleece

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

Nice fit, very comfortable to wear on cool days with little to no wind. Wind cuts right through it, but having a long sleeve underneath helps out. Within the first few weeks I noticed some thread coming undone on the right front pocket. Overall awesome jacket.

Great Fleece

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs large

Very comfortable and warm jacket. The sleeves run longer than the RDT 300 fleece which is great since I've got long arms. Not great in the wind but if you pair this with a down vest it is awesome.

My only complaint is the black one I have attracts a lot of hair.

My son is about 6'1" and weighs around 200...

My son is about 6'1" and weighs around 200 pounds. His waist size is a 36. I was going to order a large because that is what he usually wears. I heard these run small. What would be the best size for him?

Responded on

If he usually wears larges I would say go with that, from the measurements you gave that is what I would have suggested anyways.

Responded on

your best bet is to get his waist and chest measurements as opposed to height and weight. but based on the height and weight, probably large.

Posted on

My husband is 6'4, 220lbs and his chest is a 46 in a suit coat... do you think the L or XL would be best? I dont want it to be too large... or too small. I keep reading the reviews on how it runs large. Thanks!

Responded on

The large is for chest sizes 42-44. I would recommend the XL. If it turns out to be not what you want, we have a great return policy where we will either get you set up with a different jacket more to your liking or we will refund your money.

Responded on

I'm 6', 195 and have around a 44 inch chest. however, I have some 46 suit coats and some 42 as different manufacturers apparently have different inches? anyway, sounds like your husband is just a little more stretched out than me, so I would guess large. if you actually measure his chest at it's largest point, you could get a better idea. but like William said it's easy to exchange wrong size with BC.

Years of use, still 10/10

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

I got an older version of this jacket years ago. I've worn it every single winter, and almost every time I've been skiing as well. I actually love wearing this Denali Fleece under my outer Oakley shell. It has perfect loft keeping me completely warm. Its also nice to have vents on an underlayer, so you can customize your air flow even more. I also wear this jacket almost everyday during the winter. Great durability, you absolutely get what you pay for. The price is high but worth it.
This fleece fits well, but its loose fitting. So it'll feel like it runs large.

Is this Jacket compatible to use as insulation with the RTD Rain Jacket?

Best Answer Responded on

The RDT is not zip in compatible, unfortunately.

The following shells are zip in compatible:
Any TriClimate Jacket
Mt. Light Parka
Mt. Light Jacket
Varius Guide

Best of luck!

Responded on

lots of people, myself included, don't bother zipping or snapping in insulation layers. if you're in changing conditions, it's a hassle to hook everything up every time. if you have a shell you like, just make sure this fits under it without restricting movement.

Responded on

Absolutely Chris. Great way to go.

Classic Fleece / Spendy

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

The good:
This Fleece was the coolest thing for years. By now it's a well known classic. This fleece is well made with plenty of pockets, vents and so forth. Snaps into other TNF jackets as insulation. Very durable. This jacket will not fall apart.

The Bad:
For the money... you are getting a basic non wind blocking fleece. At almost 2 Benjamins, I'd put my money toward a more technical windblocking fleece or softshell with better weather resistance.

I've owned both full jacket and vest versions of the Denali over the years. A great well made fleece. However, next go around, I will opt for a more technical fleece. Basic fleece jackets can be bought for much less.

Buy it if you are using it together with other TNF jackets as an integrated layering system. Buy if it's on sale. Or, just buy it if you don't care how much it costs and want a well made durable fleece jacket.

Runs large. Me: 5'11" 180-185. I own a Medium. Arms feel good; but, the main jacket body is big.

Good Jacket

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

I've had this jacket for about six years now, and it still looks as good as the day I bought it. It's fairly warm, durable, and made of high quality material. It's a little broad in the shoulders for me (6'1, 180 lbs., wear a 40in. blazer, have this in a Medium), and it does not cut the wind at all. While the latter can be expected, I feel there are other fleeces (Patagonia) that offer a fleece jacket with more protection from the wind. Overall it's a nice fleece jacket, but I prefer my Patagonia fleece over this one.

warm!

The Tride and True! It's fashionable and warm, does not perform in wind or rain but hey, it's not meant to. I normally wear a cheap rain jacket for a wind breaker (and I'm set) b/c im broke. Pricy so ask santa nicely for christmas.
