annicuswrote a review of The North Face Pumori Fleece Jacket - Women's on August 26, 2010
I ordered the Pumori because I really liked the Knight Purple color. There was only 1 size in stock (XS) when I ordered it, and I'm usually a S, but some of the reviews implied that this fleece runs large, so I gave it a shot. I received it yesterday and the shade of purple is exactly what I had wanted. The size is also perfect on me - the arms are the perfect length (long enough for my long arms) and the shoulders fit well. It is slightly snug on my hips (I don't have large hips - they're average) but I wouldn't say it's tight. All in all - great fit, and I'm excited to have a nice soft fuzzy fleece in my collection for this coming fall and winter. I am not expecting wind proofing or anything (I know better - I have a Denali) so I expect it won't help when it's REALLY cold, but I think it'll be the perfect fleece for spring and fall in CA when it's a little more chilly.
I have not washed or worn this yet so I can't attest to its durability.
This is not a performance fleece - it's more of a fashion fleece. As long as you're aware of that when you purchase it, you'll be pleased. And if you're between sizes, size down. Even if you're not, you should consider it. I wear a S in Patagonia fleeces (I have 2 and S fits well in both) for sizing reference. A S Denali is large/boxy on me.
