Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought this belt about two months ago and I have worn it nearly everyday. Its light, stretchy and you can adjust the fit to the most minute detail. I have shed my leather "office" belts and entered the new world of functional, light belts that make sense in 2017. Don't think about it, just do it.

This is a very low profile hoody. On the plus side it is super soft and fits great: read nice a trim with great stretch during athletic endeavors. I wear it nearly everyday to the gym in the early morning including during crossfit warmups and it performs well. On the negative side (highly subjective) this is a very thin summer-weight hoody that is not going to keep you very warm. Another minor design critque: the front collar when fully zipped with the hood down droops a bit and folds over showing the inside. I prefer a more fleece-like collar that stands up when fully zipped.

This jacket was much warmer than I expected, in a good way. They were very generous with the Sherpa lining which makes this a warm jacket/shacket. I typically think of shackets as more transitional (read: not that warm); however, this one is not that. The fit is very true to size for me (see information below). The blue is a nice middle of the road blue that any guy will feel comfortable sporting and the matte finish gives it that nice classy workwear type touch that's so hot right now.

I grew up enjoying all aspects of the Colorado River: fishing, rafting, boating and most importantly water to live in the desert that is Arizona. Preserving the Colorado, which is the lifeblood of the West is of paramount importance. I couldn't have been happier to purchase this product to support the Colorado River.

Oh Patagonia, how I wish you would clean up your fit. One side of me loves the softness and style of the this fleece. The quality is great and it is super cozy and a joy to wear. However, the fit is too boxy and too square through the torso. I wish they made a slimmer cut.

This is a stylish and warm outdoor meets urban fashion piece which is very consistent with the direct of The North Face's lifestyle clothing. The jacket is lined with a very light sherpa fleece which adds warmth and keeps the general profile of the jacket low. The sherpa combined with the synthetic insulation results in a warmer-than-expected jacket. The fit is what I would call relaxed true to size. Meaning, this is a very normal fit piece with generous shoulders. I think this is appropriate given this is an urban inspired piece trying to evoke a mix of the outdoor bomber/varsity jacket vibe. I prefer my jackets a bit more tailored than most, but find this one very comfortable and not too big. I have been really impressed wit the quality of The North Face's construction over the past few years. With everyone moving to Patagonia, I don't think The North Face gets enough credit for design and overall product quality.

We bought this for our 2 yr old to take with her to school, with grandma, play dates, etc. It is a perfect size for her necessities, jacket, doll and water bottle. Favorite features are the large carry straps plus back pack straps that are completely adjustable. She can wear it or an adult could adjust to their size. Also the front can zip completely down to access items at the bottom very easily. Love the material and color combos. This bag will be great for her for years and years.

My wife has switched out her favorite jacket. “I am loving the quilted look and dark navy blue. The Sherpa hood is soft and comfortable and I appreciate the soft cuffs on the sleeves that make the arms fit comfortably on my longer arms. I’ve worn this at night to colder October outdoor events and was perfectly warm.”
