Black magic you can trust.
Balancing warmth and breathability is like trying to turn a pile of pennies into gold bullion, but The North Face has pulled off some mad alchemy and called it the FuseForm Dolomiti 1/4-Zip Men's Hoodie. By using FuseForm construction—a subtle blend of patterns and lofts—it made the Dolomiti breathable in the back and warm in the front, so you don't sweat to death or suffer through chills while you're climbing or hiking. The alpine fit allows for easy layering under a shell, and the zippered chest pocket is the perfect place for a snack, phone, or your trusty compass.

- Q & A
Not what I expected
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
- Fit: Runs small
- Size Bought: large
I thought this would be a bit heavier weight for winter wear. I know it is not very heavy in physical weight but I was expecting it to provide toasty warmth. I really was not impressed by the material nor was the person who received this as gift; therefore, it was returned. You are better off looking for something else. Overall, a bit pricey for the material and quality.
Warm and Snug. 13 oz for a large.
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: Runs small
- Size Bought: Large
I was excited to see this product due to the claimed weight. Unfortunately the size Large I purchased weighed in at 13 oz. That's about 5 oz more than spec.
I still do give this piece high marks for its overall design, warmth and quality. Sadly I did return this as, it was not quite what I was looking for. One thing to note is that it is a very technical looking piece, the material looks and feels very similar to Nike's Hyperwarm Series.
The fit is very snug, fits like a glove as the say.
