Description

Throw it on and go.

The North Face took a great thing and made it even better with its latest version of the Women's TKA 100 Texture Masonic Hooded Fleece Jacket. The new premium Polartec fleece is warmer and lighter than ever, providing highly breathable, wicking comfort across a wide range of activities. We'd name them, but really, the list is way too long.
  • Polartec fleece features an ultra-soft hand and unique surface texture
  • Pill-resistant fleece on face and back ensures it looks good wash after wash
  • Gently ruched hand pockets and a longer, tapered silhouette impart a feminine look
  • Thumbholes in cuffs keep your hands warm on cool mornings and allow layers to slide on easily

Recommended for lightweight fleece.

Needed to replace an old North Face fleece. Would have liked to get it in grey but it was not on sale in grey. I figured I should add color to my closet anyway. I like the thumb holes--new colors do not have thumb holes (replaced with media pocket?). The blue is a bright, fun color but not too flashy. This is a nice lightweight hooded fleece. The rouching at the pockets makes it feel a little bunchy in the middle.

Does Pill...

I ordered the size small in striker blue and I really like the color and the overall look. It does fit a bit large...I'm about 5'5'' and 120 lbs. It isn't as close fitting as I would like it to be. Nonetheless, that's not really the problem. I ordered the fleece even though I noticed that people had previously commented that it pills. I hoped that maybe it wouldn't pill on me, especially after I saw that the description which claims that it is "pill-resistant." Unfortunately, it has already started pilling and I have had it less than a week and have worn it about three times. I suppose that reflects the quality of the fleece.

Its ok

Runs a little small, but the color is great. I have to wear it as a shirt.

thumbs up

I got the bonnie blue. I was a little concerned with the color (looking at it on here) since it appears really bright, but it's a lot calmer in person. I like it a lot. the thumb wholes are neat, and makes it easy to put on a thicker coat over if it you're layering for really cold weather, avoiding bunching in the forearm that can be super annoying.

overall I have zero complaints, honestly.

sizing: I got a small and it fits great, perhaps just a tad loose - the XS would have been nice if I wanted it real fitted. I'm 5'3, 125 pounds.

Love everything about it!

I honestly am very impressed about this hoodie - the striker blue I was afraid was going to be a bit too bright for my liking but it's definitely more "mellow" color, almost like a teal blue; it fits perfect and I love the fact that it's almost like a jersey material from outside (looks more sharp than regular fleece) and cozy regular fleece from inside; and of course the price is really good for the quality.
I ordered one of the Marmot hoodies initially but you can see immediately the difference in quality - North Face can't be beaten! Highly recommend. I might actually get one in a different color...Oh, I haven't washed it yet but I'm sure it will hold up just fine.

Functional, ok quality

The jacket is pretty much what I expected for the price. It's not the same quality as other North Face fleeces, but it's much cheaper than the others. There seem to be some sizing issues; previous reviews have said it runs small, but I ordered two of the same size, and one fit and the other was way too big. I ended up giving it to my sister. I'm 5'4", 110 lbs and ordered the small. I probably should have gotten the extra small.
It's a good jacket as a base layer or a light outer layer. Overall, I'm happy with it.

LOVE

Perfect fit, love the thumb holes. This jacket is great for fall!

Cute! Warm! Great layer!

Definitely a cute, well cut sweatshirt. It's not your standard fleece, as one or two have mentioned, and I can imagine it will pill up with warm water wash and drying, but I'm super pumped on it, and it's definitely not your standard sweatshirt. Hood is roomy but fitted, and the pockets are ruched which is a detail you can't see on the picture because they have the hips part pinned back on the mannequin, but it's definitely ruched and girly.

I'm 5'10" and would have sprung for the large if they had it, but I got a medium instead and actually like the more tailored fit.

I ordered the olive green... the color is lighter than in the pictures, but not obnoxiously so.

Got it for $35 on steepandcheap and I'm pretty satisfied.

Cute! Warm! Great layer!

looks awful after a few wears

I really want to like this hoodie. It fits well, its warm, the thumb holes are great, but it pills like crazy. It looks awful after only a single wash and a few days of wearing. And it just keeps accumulating to the point that my blue hoodie (oh and it isn't the blue that is displayed, way different color) looks white from all the pilling. so sad

Responded on

I have had the same problem with the pilling, it looks horrible. I plan to contact backcountry to return it as I'm not pleased with the quality of this NF product at all. Very disappointed.

Not what i expected

First of all it says it is a FLEECE. It is a hooded SWEATSHIRT. There is a huge difference. I would pay the money for a fleece which looks nicer, etc. compared to a sweatshirt. I returned it. I picked the Garden Pink and it was a pukey looking pink.

good sweatshirt

It's a sweatshirt really, not a jacket. It's nice and I'm keeping it . I do think it runs small so order up a size.
I wear a large in EVERYTHING but the large was snug so i returned for a XL.
Also, the North Face logo is black and on the front not back. So on the black SWEATSHIRT, it's hard to see.

Not what I expected

The sizing on this runs small, but that wasn't the major issue. After wearing it only once it began to pil and I noticed a hole in the fabric. I expected better quality from NorthFace and will be returning cause I'm not keeping an expensive sweatshirt I'm not happy with.

LOVE IT

Love this jacket! It's so soft and light, perfect for spring and fall. Not suitable for winter.
Also great for layering. Perhaps under your ski/snowboarding jacket.

Poor Quality

Very disapppointed in this item. It started to pill on the arms after wearing only 3 times. I washed according to directions and hung to dry.

Comfort & Function

I love this hoodie! It is warm, but lightweight and looks great. It is cut a little longer, which is what I like. I wore this hiking as well as around town and it kept me plenty warm on both occasions. The thumb holes are nice if you want some hand warmth, but don't want to wear gloves. Overall, I am very happy with it!
