Description

A reliable softshell for the uptrack that functions as a wind-blocking mid-layer during the reward.

To prevent the bone-rattling chill at the top of the skin track, The North Face Sentinel WindStopper Softshell Jacket blocks the wind so you can get ready for the downhill lap without losing a nipple or two in the process. The power of GORE WindStopper technology vastly improves your mountain experience, because it blocks the very same wind that loads your chosen slope with creamy goodness. Then you can just throw on your snow-proof shell, make self-actualizing turns, and get started on another lap.
  • GORE WindStopper 3L softshell technology blocks the wind and helps reduce the wind chill while remaining breathable for skinning and bootpacking up resort ridgelines
  • Tall collar, hook-and-loop cuffs, 28-inch length, and hem cinch cord further seal out the cold
  • Full-length front zipper permits venting when you heat up in the cold
  • Brushed collar lining feels smooth on your skin and prevents zipper burn
  • Two zippered hand pockets hold skiing or daily accessories close at hand

Here's what others have to say...

Does anyone know if the fit has changed...

Does anyone know if the fit has changed over the years? I noticed an older one says performance fit and the new ones say regular fit. Thanks.

Best Answer Responded on

Usually performance means a trimmer, form fitting fit, while regular is more relaxed and casual.

Responded on

Right, I was just wondering if the fit had changed. I returned mine because of the loose fit.

What is the lowest temperature would you...

What is the lowest temperature would you recommend for this jacket?

Best Answer Responded on

Usually with baselayers a wind stopper softshell, I feel comfortable in the high 50's /low 60's. You might feel cold if you go lower than that without more layers. This of course is if you're static. If you're doing a high output activity such as hiking or mountaineering, you could go much lower. Just keep moving.

Good Jacket

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Not the heaviest jacket, but a good one to keep with you anywhere you go. Works good with layers on cold days, or by itself on a cool spring or fall day. I take this jacket everywhere!

Best Jacket I've ever bought

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've had my sentinel jacket for about five years. I bought this jacket in college because the wind chill on the campus at Texas Tech is brutal. Turns out this jacket got more than it bargained for. This jacket has been through a year and a half of being stuffed in a backpack for sudden rain or dust storms. It's been through a surprise 18 inch snowfall that shut down Albuquerque, NM. It's been my main jacket to protect from windblown rain and downpours in Dallas, TX, and most recently, it's been mountain climbing in January. We went to the top of Texas on Guadalupe Peak, and even though I brought a bigger jacket, I never needed it. We went through a foot and a half of snow on the north face (haha) of the mountain , 25 mph winds through the canyons and 55 degree and sunshine at the peak. My heavy jacket was stuffed in my backpack the whole time. . This is literally the best jacket I have ever bought. It's only drawback is that it is not completely waterproof. It is very water resistant, but after a heavy downpour, you'll get some dampness on the shoulders. I'll definitely be buying another one soon... not because this one isn't still good, but because it is.

Overall Wind Satisfaction

I've used this jacket in both the city and in the backcountry and it works well for both. I wish it was a little better at ventilating while hiking (pit zips would be awesome), I do find myself overheating occasionally. I am 5'9" 145 lbs and got the small. Fits snug, no room for layering, which, if you need layers, this may not be the jacket for you. Pocket placement is clutch if you use it for backpacking. Durability on this jacket is great, I've used the crap out of mine and after a quick wash, it still looks brand new (*note: In the picture I have the deep blue color because mine is a couple years older).

Stops the Wind

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I live in Northwest OH where the winds kick up in the winter and I have to say this jacket STOPS THE WIND. 45 mph gusts are no match for this softshell. The jacket is light weight but has plenty of layering room underneath. Thumbs up to GORE and TNF for putting together a quality product. XL fits great for me, i'm 6'6, 235 and have layering room.

Great at blocking wind

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The windstopper fabric is thin but does a great job keeping the wind off. The fabric is fairly thin so it isn't great when the temp gets below freezing, but it is a perfect fall coat or layering piece.

The downside is there aren't enough pockets. It could really use an interior pocket. I am 5'11" and 180lbs and a large fits good.
