Your young fashion maverick and his best buddy have a bet going as to who can wear shorts longer into the winter; stuff like this drives you crazy, but thankfully he'll let you bundle up the rest of him in The North Face Youth Denali Fleece Jacket. Even if his legs are covered in goosebumps, the Denali's expedition-weight fleece and wind-blocking nylon inserts keep his upper body cozy as he waits at the bus stop, and the jacket’s DWR finish repels light precipitation. When temperatures start to stay below freezing and he finally agrees to wear long pants (after winning the bet, of course), your kid can zip the Denali into his The North Face shell to create the ultimate insulated winter jacket.

Perfect for my son

  • Fit:True to size

This is my son's first North Face Jacket so I wasn't really sure about the sizing. He is big for his 6 years so I took a chance and ordered the 7/8 and it was perfect for him. He looks so cool in it and I/we can hardly wait for him to wear it. The other reviews that I read first were very very helpful.

Great price, fast shipping love it.

Best prices on the internet. Lightening fast shipping! Awesome product no complaints I purchased 2. One for my 14 year old XL and a L for my very tall 9 year old. They love them.

I have four children and I buy them yearly. I always buy them from best prices around! I love the NF's they hold up to multiple washes, etc. I use to buy them bigger to get more use out of them but for the cheap prices- I now buy them true to size because by the end of the year they're usually wore out!! :) We live in Indiana and they wear them year 'round. Even on cooler summer nights. Perfect jackets! Love them and love that we get a full year of use from them. They're perfect for all Indiana weather! This will be my 3rd year purchasing from this site! Thank you Backcountry!

Great Jacket , fast delivery.....

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

This is the 4th Black Denali North Face that I have purchased for my son . He is 13 so he grows a lot every year. & needs a new one every winter..... His birthday is in December so it's a great gift. He loves how it is warm but not bulky. I love how it looks and how it washes so well and still looks great after several washes.... I would definitely recommend this jacket to anyone who wants a stylish & warm comfortable jacket for their child or themself.....I give it 5 stars for quality &. for prompt delivery & great price with free shipping .......

Perfect for the active boy!

I buy one of these every year for my little guy. He is 10 now and HATES wearing down coats. Refuses to wear anything with a hood. This is the perfect solution. It is pricey but he uses it everyday and stays nice and toasty without the bulk. Sizing is a little off. My son has a slim athletic build. He wears an average size 10 /12 but we had to buy him a large (14/16). The north face we had last year (10/12) was to short in arms to wear again this year. The large fits great!

An absolute staple for our kids

    We've been buying this jacket for our 3 boys for the past three years. They are made well enough that they get handed down to the next kid in line and still look great. Our oldest is on his 3rd jacket and I don't forsee stopping anytime soon. We've had to replace a few simply because the kids have lost them and refuse to go without! The heavyweight fleece is perfect for spring and fall and the occasional warm winter day. Love it!

    Bought this for my son for X-mas. He absolutely loves it. Keeps him warm for those days/nights when it's in-between a winter jacket and a hoodie. Fits well but is a little large. Good thing though as he can grow into it. Delivery came when it was expected. Will definately buy from Backcountry again.

    Brought for my 6 year old Kindergartner!

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    My son is a typical rough and tumble six year old. For this school year I decided to spend the extra money and buy a jacket that would last; I was not dissapointed. This jacket works great in all weather, is snug (fits a litte on the small size as a heads up) and comes in many different color combos. I was abit sheepish about the fleece and polyester combination but it turns out it works just fine. My son recently ventured into the snow in this jacket and although the fleece got wet it didn't soak through, this is a stylish windproof lightweight jacket that has held up surprisingly well through ninja kicks, army rolls and endless adventures. I highly reccommend.

    New to BackCountry and TOTALLY IMPRESSED

      I just bought this North Face jacket for my son, ordered Tues. night arrived Thurs. Price was great and my son absolutely loves the jacket. I only wish they had more sizes in stock for sale items. Will definitely be a regular to this site.

      im wanting to buy this jacket for my 12...

      im wanting to buy this jacket for my 12 year old and usually wears a size 10-12 but I really want it to last until highschool and still fit him what size should I buy

      Best Answer

      They run true to size; My 7 year old wears a 7/8 S. My 6 year olds wear a 6 XS. And my 9 year old wears a 10/12, which is a little big. I would say you should go with the large anyway, it will be a little big but last longer. I usually size up anyway but I bought the right size this time because after a year use with my kids they're wore out anyway! But that's thru many, many washes-- as my kids are young. I have three jackets myself and I've had them since HS-- 2004.

      I want tto order the Denali for my son who is 12 and wears a size 12 to 14. I have red in the reviews that they run small for size, is that true? I don't know whether to order the L or XL?


      I would definitely encourage you to not get the XL. Often when reviews say a jacket or pant runs small they are merely saying that the item runs a little more trim than other clothing from the same company. The Denali jacket is a little more trim than some other TNF jackets I have tried but neither is it a relaxed fit like a Patagonia Snap-T. I would go with a large to give him good sleeve and torso length but avoid drowning him.

      do the north face denali fleece jackets run small. my son is 13 and i ordered him a north face denali size large 14/16 going by the size chart but it seems snug...can't try it on him because its for x-mas.

      Will this be good on a mountain?

      Will this be good on a mountain?

      It depends on what you're doing on the mountain. But more than likely yes. It isn't windproof but it does have some wind-blocking panels and it's a thicker fleece. DWR is great, and that will help keep the wetness from seeping through. Though snow tends to stick to fleece after a while. Hope that helps.

      Write your question here...My husband is 5'7" and 125lbs. Can he wear a boys XL?

      It would be tight. My son is about that size, and let me tell ya, it is impossible finding stuff to fit him now. I have been trying to get him to fit into a mens small, but he is just a bit to small for that, and a bit too big to spend alot of money on him, when he will out grow it in months
