What is the difference between the windwall...
What is the difference between the windwall 1 and 2, and the pamir wind stopper?
Windwall 1 - 100 weight fleece that has 14 CFM windproofness.
Windwall 2 - 200 weight fleece that has 10 CFM windproofness (lower the number, the more windproof). Also has slash pocket on chest.
Pamir - Gore Windstopper textile, which is totally windproof (0 CFM)

What size would you recommend? 5'9" 195#. 46 coat. Probably wear alone or under a shell.
Probably a large. You can compare your measurements with the sizing chart under the price, too.
Good Fit, Nice craftsmanship
It fits is more like a normal jacket, unlike some TNF, which seem to be made for the typical fat american. I am 6'0" 160 lbs and a Large is perfectly sized and not baggy in the front. Zippers seem solid and it blocks wind nicely. The pockets on the sides go really high up the front, basically the entire inside of the front jacket and this seems a bit odd.
north face pamir jacket
just perfect weight with nice lining my son loves it and it great quality. would recommend to anyone
I'm 6'1" what size should I get? I got...
I'm 6'1" what size should I get? I got windwall jacket and XL fits me fine. Should I go with an XL or L size?
If you're going to layer under it, go for the XL. If it's going to be for around town, the L will look better over casual wear. I'm 6' 210lbs, and find that most jackets fit that guideline for me.
Great jacket, good balance of warmth and windstopping ability. Best worn as snug fit (medium fits 6 ft. 150lbs), would work well as a technical hiking jackets under a shell. looking forward at layering it during a montreal winter.
Is there a shell this might zip into which...
Is there a shell this might zip into which will help beef it up for the snowy months?
Hey there, this jacket will not zip into any of the TNF's triclimate jackets or any Columbia jackets... the zipper isn't the correct style...
I want something for a mid layer that will...
I want something for a mid layer that will work with a midweight base and shell for active 10 - 15*F any chance of this working?
should be perfect, that is kind of what i use in Canadian winters
Lightweight, windproof and warm. Recommended.
The Pamir jacket is now the 2nd North Face jacket I've owned and vastly superior than the 1st (Denali jacket)! The Gore Tex technology is unlike anything else out there and this really does cut the wind effectively. It will keep you warm and comfortable. This jacket is a great option if you don't like bulky jackets and could serve as a good outside layer.
Love the way this jacket's made, seems to have good zippers and wrist cuffs, etc... but it's very light duty... by that I mean it's not warm. It does keep the wind out, but if the air is cold with out the wind, you will be too.
My husband is 5'10" and 240lbs and normally...
My husband is 5'10" and 240lbs and normally wears a size XL what size should I order for this jacket?
XL would probably be correct.
The jacket is great - quite light, yet really windproof - well proportioned - I'd buy another in a heart beat if I needed it.
I bought this for my husband right before our vacation to Colorado in May. He's not a big guy, so the fit was great. Lightweight but warm. Blocked the wind just like the description said. He loves it!
Would this jacket be sufficient to layer...
Would this jacket be sufficient to layer up and use for downhill skiing or snow kiting? I'm looking for something that is windproof but is still very flexible and maneuverable. If so, would it be worth while to go up a size to fit thicker layers underneath? Thanks!
I have the TNF Windwall fleece and found that the large fit me better than the medium. I'm 5'11" 155lbs, just to give you an idea. I know this one is more flexible than the Windwall, so I believe it would work great for what you are looking for.
I bought this as a gift for my brother. He loves the color (red) and the fit (he's about 6 feet and pretty big--got him an XL). And it's WindStopper--works great in this crazy spring weather.
I am 6 feet tall about 140 pounds. What...
I am 6 feet tall about 140 pounds. What size should i get?
medium....I am 5 9 155lbs to 160lbs and I wear a medium,my brother 6 2 185lbs and he wear a large...
For your height I think a small would be to short in the arms....
if you have long arms i would go with a large, if not then get a medium.
I ordered a fleece jacket for myself and my wife at less than half the price. Ann's is still good with a heavy zipper but on mine the main zipper and one pocket zipper quit functioning with only a few month's use. I bit the bullet and paid for this quality jacket. It is also windproof. I MUST have zippered pockets. I recumbent trike tour and lose things! These pockets are wonderful and the jacket is also a wind breaker.
I also bought an Icebreaker Windbreaker hooded rain jacket that has WONDERFUL right, left and left arm zippered pockets along with Icebreaker top and bottom 260 marino wool under-layers. Finally I am set. They are all great.
Finally a longer back to a windstopper fleece jacket
The xl Pamir is two and one half inches longer from top of back to bottom of back as opposed to the large size Pamir; I know because I bought both and measured. Although a bit wide at least the xl looks like a real jacket unlike most plummer's crack short jackets on the market today. I'm 6'1" and 182 lbs.
I love the lightweight pamir windstopper fleece, warm when you want it and cool when you don't need the warmth, perfect balance for me. Very windproof. I used to use and love the Mountain Hardwear Windtech xl jacket (except it was too short) but it gave out after 5 years from too many washings which delaminated the jacket. I checked around and ordered a Marmot Afterburner windstopper fleece jacket, but it was too warm to wear all the time so I sent it back. I retried a Mountain Hardwear Windtech again, but it was again too short even in xl size. So I tried both an xl and a large in the Pamir from North Face, and the xl is great and even though it is a bit wide I love the perfect length and weight. I hope this is all the shopping I'll need to do for another five years. I use the jacket for backcountry/resort skiing/windsurfing days/and around town. Windstopper fleece still works best for me and windstopper softshells don't feel right when the temps warm up.
