Heads deserve to be cozy, too.

Now your head gets to enjoy that same warm, breathable comfort whether you're trekking hut-to-hut or bar-to-bar.

    I bought this coat and was disappointed, due to the fact that it was shedding fleece. I exchanged it for another and still the same result. The coat itself pretty nice and warm, but my con with this coat is the fact of shedding fleece. If your thinking about buying this jacket, be aware that it sheds.

    Simply Classic & Amazing

      TNF Denali fleece has been a standby for endless activities, errands or lounging. Just warm enough, plus the addition of the hood makes this the go-to fleece. Love it and fits true to size, with extra room in the sleeves. No complaints...

      Good jacket. Does NOT "run large".

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

      The jacket is warm, as expected. It does NOT "run large". I have a 48.5 inch chest and definitely wish I'd bought the XXL when it was still available. There is no room to layer underneath. This jacket is not windproof, but it is not advertised as such, and shouldn't be expected to be. Next Fall, I'll buy a XXL, and wear it as a layer under my Northface NFZ Gore-Tex parka and I expect it will be perfect for that.

      Good jacket...

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

      After reading so many meaningless reviews, all saying the jacket is warm like you are not buying a fleece jacket to keep warm or something; it just silly, I decided to write my own review to help out people who wants to buy this jacket and need it to know what size to wear. Please don't waste space and everyone's time if you are not going to give your height, weight, and the size you purchased. I am 5 ft 7.5 ft tall and weigh in 155 lbs. I got the medium in black and I felt it is a little big for me at the shoulder and sleeve; just slightly. Not sure if I can fit into a small, but I don't want a jacket that's too tight, so medium would do it for me. This jacket is good for temperature between 45 degree to 55 degree in my opinion.

      Nice addition to a TNF classic

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I bought the Denali Hooded Fleece to replace my 14 year old Denali jacket. The addition of the hood in a really nice touch and is a very useful. Overall, I am somewhat disappointed in the lowering of quality -- snaps are now plastic vs. metal as on my old Denali.

      I am 5'9, 155lbs, and fit, with wider shoulders and long arms. I bought a large -- it fits nicely though the shoulders and chest, and does not restrict my movement or ride up on my arms when reaching; however, the 'body' of the jacket is just huge, even if I am layered up. I've tried Medium, that looks better, but is too tight in the shoulders and the sleeves ride well up on my arms when I am reaching, which is not acceptable in cold, outdoor activities.

      The North Face Denali Hooded Fleece Jacket-Men's

        Apparently it is the Best Christmas Present Ever the only time my son takes it off is when he goes to bed.....He has entered the teen years and wants everything everyone else has and with your help he got the one thing he begged for this year, thank you for the warmth and the smile it put on my sons face. Can't beat the protection from the weather, well made jacket, would recommend to everyone that asks about it and also will direct them to your site. Take care and have a Happy, Healthy New Year!!

        very happy

          we're very happy - got a men's small - purple hooded for my daughter - she is almost 6' tall and 123 pounds - it fits great - long enough for her in the body and sleeves - and she just used the cinch cords at the waist to make it a great fit - got a great price for the purple men's!

          Great Fleece

            Its a great fleece. Comfortable. Durable. Clearly stylish only downside is it provides no wind protection so just make sure you get it big enough to wear layers underneath it during winter other then that like i said great.

            Could hibernate in this all winter

              WARM! Like a serious wool sweater of similar heft. (Polartec 300 means heavier and bulkier fabric than your normal fleece jacket.) Includes four zippered pockets in convenient places; drawstrings for hem and hood; and pit zips.

              Hooded version costs same as hoodless (both marked down from $160), adding warmth with negligible weight. Fits snugly (not oversized/floppy), so looks good up or down.

              Sizes fit as expected. Go one size up if you want room for a thick inner layer: the sleeves will be a bit long, but the cuffs have enough elastic to keep them off your hands.

              Dark colors (black, brown, blue) are most versatile if you want to wear this to work/etc. without looking highly technical. The nylon-shell apron is black, which looks high-contrast against gray fleece.

              Backcountry had the lowest price on this. Checkout was painless, and free shipping to CA was fast.

              Good casual fleece

                I originally was not looking for a Denali fleece, but I found a gray one yesterday on a clearance rack for $50 off and decided to try it on. Once I tried it on and saw all the features and the comfortable fit I decided to pick it up.

                The fit is nearly perfect for everyday use. I'm 5'10" 185lbs and a large fits me well. I'd describe the fit as regular. It is not an athletic fit.

                Pros: It is very warm. There are abrasion patches in wear areas to help the fleece last a long time. The inside material is incredibly soft and comfortable. There are lots of features! The two hand pockets are nice and comfortable. There are two chest pockets -- one for a media device and a larger one that works great for sunglasses or a hat. It has pit zips. It also has a hood although that could be a plus or minus depending upon how you are looking at it.

                Cons: It is heavy at almost twice the weight of a MH Monkey Man (although with more features). It is not water proof and you'll find the wind goes right through it.

                I haven't tried this out as a piece of technical gear yet. I think it could work nicely with a light wind blocking layer underneath. I think it's great for wearing around town although it is by no means a replacement for your winter coat.

                My opinion of Northface Denali jacket with hood

                  Just what I wanted. My 3 kids all got Northface Denali jackets with hoods, because they refused to wear winter coats. This lightweight, but very warm jacket keeps them warm enough when the temperature is in the teens( BUT I agree with most reviews I've read, on windy days I, also find I can get cold in the jacket). And since all have hoods to keep their heads warm, we don't have to go through the hastle every morning of finding hats. This jacket is perfect for what I was looking for!!
                  Ordering from was easy, product was available, just like the website said, and the shipping was exactly when they said it would be.
                  Very pleased with everything. Thanks!!!

                  Men's Denali Hooded Fleece Jacket - the best !!

                    We bought this jacket for our son, 24 year old, for Christmas. He absolutely loves it!! The fit was perfect, so order your usual size.

                    It's extremely warm, but lightweight. He wears it snowboarding in 20 degree weather and has only needed a shell when the wind chill was down to around 5 below.

                    We appreciate the live chat help with our decision, and the quick shipping!


                    Unanswered Question

                    I bought this jacket and while i love most it's features. I can appreciate that it's just a fleece jacket and wind goes right through it. Is there any particular shell that goes well with this coat? The sleeves have the tabs to snap in to a shell like a triclimate so i figure there is a shell ideally designed to go with it. Also i got it in xl should i get the shell in xl or xxl to fit this thick fleece under it? I'll be in subzero temps next week so i need to buy somthing like now.

                    can you please help me?

                    Has TNF changed the "thickness" of the fleece they are using. I have several of these, but the most recent, I purchased with the hood, and it feels (both in weight and in touch) to be "thinner" than previous Denali's...thx ss

                    How does the Ripstop hoodie differ from...

                    How does the Ripstop hoodie differ from the other colors? More wind- and rain-resistance? Warmer? Thanks.

                    *RipStop helps keep any cuts/slash's that may happen, from 'spreading' or expanding...from getting larger and completely ruining the jacket/coat. It's the way the material is 'woven'. Rip-Stop has nothing to do with a warmth factor. It is a great idea, and saves your jacket from being a total loss!

                    Hope this still helps.
