    New Favorite Shoulder Season Hiking Top

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'3"
    • Weight: 135lbs

    Picked up this shirt as the temperatures started to dip in the mountains and I needed a warmer base layer for hiking and running. I love the color (mine was a turquoise / blue) - bright and holds its rich color after washing. I really like the length, goes past my waist and doesn't ride up on steep ascents or scrambling over boulders. The weight of this top is substantial as well - has a nice feeling to it and warmer than I expected. The chest zipper pocket is a bonus for cards and keys.

    My only complaint: It's a little tight to wear a tank underneath though, so if you're in between sizes, I would recommend sizing up. The fit is a bit tight for a North Face medium, although I still think it's flattering on me and chose to keep this size.

    North Face 1/4 zip

    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: large
    • Height: 508'
    • Weight: 145lbs

    This is an awesome shirt, had to order a large after the medium was too small. Otherwise, a great shirt. look forward to getting the new one.

    My go to brand

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: XS
    • Height: 5'3"
    • Weight: 105lbs

    Once again The North Face remains my favorite brand. Being 5'3" and 105lbs with a 24 inch waist not even an XS in most brands fit me but The North Face has yet to disappoint, an XS fits perfect and flatters my petite figure. I have two of these work out tops and plan to purchases more.

    A little clingy but maybe it runs small?

    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Small
    • Height: 5'3"
    • Weight: 120lbs

    I loved the feel of the shirt. It had great hand. It was tight in certain spots and just did not flatter me. I probably needed to go up a size to a Medium but choose another style. Also it said Surf Green (which was the color of the vest I also purchased) and it was not the same color.

    I was sooooo disappointed:(

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: True to size

    I have several North Face tops and love them all. I had never ordered from Backcountry, however. This item arrived with three large oil or grease stains of some sort on it! I will never order from Backcountry again. I even had to pay to return it. Very disappointing.

    Pop goes pink!

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

    I've not yet run in this top but I've a few initial thoughts to share. The fit is great and spot-on: no vanity sizing, no wonky seams, just right. I picked up the pink one and it's fabulously bright yet not obnoxious. I'm only giving this top 4 stars because of the thumb loops -- it's like the designers at TNF got lazy and decided just to cut little slits in straight, untailored sleeves. Personally, a bit of tapering towards the cuffs and a slightly tighter fit near/around the wrist would send this top into the stratosphere.

    The North Face has yet to let me down

    Great top for climbing, canyoneering, hiking. I love The North Face products.
