A moisture-wicking monster of a mid-layer.

Head over to the backcountry, play in the park, or plow those powder-capped peaks in complete comfort with The North Face Women's Snorkle Fleece Hooded Jacket as a mid-layer this winter. Its FlashDry fleece fabric doesn't just keep you warm. It wicks moisture faster than you can point your tips down the mogul run, and it dries up in a flash (hence its name). An active fit with feminine lines pulls the jacket close to your body for both easy layering and a cute alternative to boxy layers.

The Snorkle features a scuba hood that tightly and softly seals over your head when you misplace your beanie. Thumbholes keep the sleeves in place while you reach, tuck, and cruise over corduroy. An adjustable hem retains all that wonderful warmth, and invisible zippers at the chest and hand pockets secretly conceal any items without making them noticeable to wandering eyes.

Great jacket for layering or on its own

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

I have only used this jacket a couple times for hiking and so far, I love it. It is very warm so if you are planning on just having it be a light jacket, you may want to look at something else. Although it is pretty lightweight, it warms the body very nicely - perfect for mountain hikes where the temperature decreases significantly, but not enough for a big coat. It is also very soft!
I am a very petite person and got an XS. It fits great. It is snug, but in a good way, especially come winter and I want to wear it under my ski coat.

Other than..

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs small

I liked everything about this hoodie except the arms. They were too skinny and felt very restricting. The fabric felt similar to softshell which I really liked and think this hoodie is built to last a long time, but I would suggest ordering a size up. I'm 5'3", 120lbs purchased the XS and the body fit perfect, but the arms just weren't comfortable for me, so I returned it.

Joyous Jogger

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

It's chilly here in SLC and I wanted a little bit more protection under my larger winter jacket. I'm not not the biggest supporter of NF, but I love this so far. Warm and doesn't get all gross and sweaty if you take it for a jog. I'm 5'5 and 125, I got the small and it fits perfectly.

Unanswered Question

I bought a North Face fleece two years...

Posted on

I bought a North Face fleece two years ago. It is pilling badly (especially in the underarm and lower arm area-where it rubs against my body). It's difficult to tell from the pictures, but will this fleece pill?

New favorite layer

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

This is my new "go to" layer. A base layer, this jacket, and a shell is all I need to stay warm on the coldest of days. And when I say warm, I mean WARM! The material is amazing, and like most TNF women's specific products, the fit is slim and true to size. I'm 5'9" athletic build, and a medium is perfect for me. All in all, if you're after minimal layering on a cold ski day, this is a MUST buy.

Gave as gift - buying one for myself

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share
  • Fit: True to size

This hooded jacket is awesome! I mean really awesome. The material is fantastic and is extremely comfy. It fits like most north face products do with an athletic slim cut. The zipper comes out in front of your mouth supply great wind coverage while skiing. Gave this to my mom for the holidays and it's now on my wishlist.
