    Great Jacket

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size

    My husband LOVED this jacket. Unfortunately it is NOT fireproof. He didn't realize his arm was only an inch or two above a candle's open flame. The thing went up in smoke. And its actually hard to get the fire quenched. He ended up with a 2 inch hole in his sleeve and a pretty bad burn. We will probably get another to replace it at some point.

    Great purchase

    • Fit: True to size

    My husband had been wearing his previous Denali jacket for the past 4 years. I have been begging him to replace it for the longest time as he likes the cold and doesn't wear a coat in the winter and it was falling to pieces. I was finally able to make the swap last week when I ordered from Backcountry. The free two day shipping was the icing on the cake. I ordered on a Sunday and instead of it arriving on Wednesday as I had anticipated, it came by Tuesday. I couldn't be more pleased seeing hubs in the new jacket and setting the old one on fire. Thanks!

    Replacement jacket

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

    Bought this for my step daughter. She previously had the same one and gave it to her husband and wanted a new one for her self. You cant go wrong with this jacket.

    It's a classic

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

    I love this jacket and living in Montana it's something I wear a lot in the spring and fall. I have had it for years now and it only shows small signs or wear. It's my go to piece of clothing whenever the temperature starts to fall.

    It's a classic

    Watch out Dads

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

    I bought this jacket as a gift for my Dad, it's a classic outerwear jacket that you'll see thousands of people wearing on the east coast. My Dad is about 6'4" and 210 lbs, I got this for him in an XL. The fit was perfect, it's appropriate but comfort.

    Denali

      I love this jacket! I usually get a men's just because of the colors. My first denali was given to me, it was used and worn and I continue to wear it. Since that time I bought another in olive green and now I am buying one in eggplant. I bought this jacket for my husband for christmas. The only downside is it is not wind resistant but if the wind is high-wear a shell over it or under it.

      Pit Zips

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

      I bought this fleece primarily because of the double chest pockets. It's literally the only fleece with four zipped pockets I've found, though I'm sure others must exist. Overall, it's a nice piece of gear.

      The only thing that bugs me is the pit zips. First, this isn't even mildly windproof, so I'm not sure what the pit zips are supposed to do. The whole thing already breathes quite well. The problem is they're right under your arms, with an extra layer of fabric on top. They're really noticeable, especially if you're wearing the fleece under another jacket, and can become a bit uncomfortable. They might be better if they were offset a bit to the front like I've seen a lot of jackets do..

      The Pit zips make the jacket. there is no faster way to temperature regulate the just unzipping.

      Stylish fleece with limited use

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

      Comfortable fleece that is obviously an iconic symbol amongst yuppies in alpine towns.

      This fleece is bulky
      It is NOT wind resistant
      It's not super lightweight
      And depending on whether or not there is a sale; it can be pricy.

      But do I love mine? Yes. There is nothing wrong with buying an impractical piece of gear just because it symbolizes a culture you love and enjoy. It's as simple as that.

      Great jacket

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

      Great quality jacket. Thick, warm, and comfortable. Does come slightly larger than normal Northface jackets. I'd order a size smaller. I ordered the camo/blk jacket.

      Why buy from anywhere else?

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

      I bought this fleece for my husband as a birthday present. He already had a NF Denali-esque fleece, but it was one that came inside of a shell that he bought a hundred years ago, so it didn't have the same nylon panels that the regular Denali has. Although his was a bit worn, I thought a new one would be a waste, and that he would end up just wearing the same old broken in one that he has been wearing forever. When I saw the sale, I said what the hell. I wouldn't have bought one for $180, but I would for $125. I (and he) wanted black, but that color wasn't on sale. The only one available in his size (that was some bright color - far from black) was black and grey with yellow details. I said what the hell, if he hates it, I can return it (thank you awesome Backcountry return policy!). His birthday is in May, but by then he really won't be wearing too much fleece, so I gave it to him early. It took him a little bit to start wearing it - but now he wears it everyday and has gotten a lot of compliments on it. I like it because it is a little different - since where we live EVERYONE wears a NF Denali (except me) - so he doesn't quite blend in with the masses. But as for product, if you have never owned one and are looking for a great, super warm fleece, get this. I would prefer it with a hood, but a lot of people don't. My husband has been wearing one as his ONLY winter coat for over 20 years (until I bought him a real winter jacket - on this site, and NF, on a great sale). It will keep you warm. We even got my father one for Christmas 2013, and he didn't know these fleeces existed. He wears it everyday also. (FYI I entered my husband's sizes below, not mine.)

      Awesome jacket but too expensive..

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

      Pros: Well made and sweet looking no doubt. The elastic on the wrists does fit fairly snug keeping wind out. It is a truly dark midnight black (if you get black).

      Cons: The sleeves are a little bit too long. I'm 6 feet tall & 185 pounds and consider the length of my arms to be average. The nice elastic around the wrists actually saves the day on this flaw otherwise the tip of the sleeves would likely rest near my nuckles. It's also too expensive in my opinion. The extras you get over their other fleeces that are half the price are the reinforced shoulders/elbows, pit zips, & chest pockets (and I don't think these are worth double the price tag). That being said I love this badass jacket and I would still recommend it.

      Awesome Jacket!!!

      • Fit: True to size

      All you need is a light t-shirt and this Jacket to get your morning joe from aroung the corner. Love it!!! Very warm and keeps out the cold.

      Nice jacket too big

      No, they don't run big. I have one.

      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!!

      My North Face Denali

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

      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.

      great jacket

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Husband loves this jacket. Couldn't believe how warm it is.

      Really Nice

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

      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'...

      I have a 44 inch chest and a 49 inch waist. what size denali jacket is recommended? I usually wear an XL. Does the Denali run large or true to size?

      Get an XL. They run true to size.

      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 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?

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

      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.

      My husband is 6'4, 220lbs and his chest...

      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!

      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.

      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.

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

      Best Answer

      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!

      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.

      I have a denali in Black. What would be a good shell to pair it with?

      Best Answer

      The Alpine Project Jacket is a Gore Tex Activeshell offering from TNF. I think it would pair up nicely. If you're looking for something less techy or more affordable and want to stay within the TNF family, the Varius Guide jacket works well.

      Does the North Face Denali on this site use YKK zippers?

      Best Answer

      Hi Erika - yes, all TNF Denali fleece jackets use YKK zippers. If you get a "Denali" without them it can be one of the telltale signs of a knockoff.

      Hello, i just ordered this in an XL mens....

      Hello,
      i just ordered this in an XL mens. I have tried on a womens XXL in the store and it fit. Do you think it will be comparable to woomens XXL? And if not is it returnable?

      The men's XL fits a chest size of 45-48 while the women's is 46-47. The men's XXL sleeve is 1/4" shorter. Those two measurements are close enough that you'll probably be ok. However, I think you'll find that the cut of the men's vs. women's Denalis are completely different. The men's will have much wider shoulders and torso in relation to the chest size. I don't think you're going to be happy with the fit.

      Luckily, Backcountry has a great return policy. Try it on, leave the tags alone, and if it doesn't fit, contact Backcountry for a return authorization. They'll take it back.

      What is exchange policy ?

      What is exchange policy ?

      Hi there,
      Check the 'return policy', under the Shop column at (or near) the bottom of the page. Or start a 'CHAT NOW' session with one of the Backcountry reps. They should be able to help you with your question. Thanks.

      The exchange policy is more of a return policy. Basically, return anything for any reason for life if you're not happy with it, and get all of your money back.

      will the denali hook into my shell in the back of the neck and at the wrists? My shell doesn't allow for zipping in.

      Best Answer

      Hi Justin, yes the denali jacket is not only zip in but also snap in compatible. Hope that helps.

      Does the Denali zip into any of the shells?...

      Does the Denali zip into any of the shells? If so, which ones? I'm looking to get a shell as a gift for someone who already has a Denali.

      thanks :)

      Hey Al. According to TNF's site the Denali should be zip-in compatible with any of their shells. I don't have the Denali myself, but my Khumbu has the same zipper system, I believe, and it does fit any TNF shell. Hope this helps.

      How long are the sleeves on this jacket?...

      How long are the sleeves on this jacket? My arms are kind of long...

      My arms are pretty long as well. I'm 5'10 and my sleeves are 34 in. It kind of depends on the width of your gut. You could go for a large but it may be baggy in the torso. I went for a medium and the arms are just right. You can try this on in most malls/sports stores because they are quite popular.

      does anyone know how this jacket compares...

      does anyone know how this jacket compares to the men's Super 200 Cresta Fleece jacket from L.L Bean? Apparently the cresta jacket is made with polertec wind pro, something this jacket is not even made with.

      Hey JK,

      The Denali is a heavier weight fleece, but it is virtually worthless in blocking wind. That said, it is a good jacket that I own a couple of, but I generally either use them as a base layer under a shell, or on top of a windstopper. I don't know about the LL Bean gear, but TNF does make quite a few styles that also use Windstopper, and of course Mountain Hardwear makes some great pieces such as the Windstopper Tech. Hope that helps.

      What temperature is this jacket good in?

      What temperature is this jacket good in?

      My boyfriend really liked this jacket, good for temps in the high 30's and above, it is not good in the wind.

      I use mine as a layer on days as cold as -5 or -10 F. By itself 30s if its not windy.

      The R probably means regular. But what does the TNF mean??? maybe the north face?

      Best Answer

      If you're talking about the color name, R is for RECYCLED and TNF is The North Face. The TNF in it really doesn't mean anything, but the R means it's made of recycled materials.
