It is funny how every time I post North Face deals, people start talking how overpriced or bad materials about this brand. I love my North Face jackets because they keep me warm and they last a long long time without going out of style. Let's just leave it the way it is, you like it, you buy it. Don't make judgement for other people. If you don't like the North Face brand name, don't jump into the forum and start making negative comments about it. You can just skip this deal and go to the next one.
I never understood why people like the Denali. The wind goes right through the fleece. They now have updated versions that offer down and windproof fleece. But, the fit of the Denali is so big and boxy. Don't get me wrong, I had a Denali. But, I passed it down to a family member. There are much better fleeces out here for similar price...even from North Face.
Good find though for those that want it.
the denali is TNF's most famous but useless jacket ever. i have no idea why it costs so much.
i got mine (women's) for $60 and it was still too much to pay for it. i prefer their other fleeces better (i have a khumbu that i wear more than my denali - it fits better).
there is a windproof denali nowadays which would be a better choice. the apex bionic is a very good jacket (but it's not a fleece).
i just ordered 2 windwalls for DH for his birthday. i'll have him choose a color, tho i'm thinking he'll like both. i hope the sizing runs normal and not big like the denali.
Something that doesn't have a North face logo on it ?
Personally, I haven't considered their products rugged outdoor gear for quite a while. For the money you're better off with Mt Hardware, but even they have gone more for trendy style then substance. I just buy some of the more expensive Columbia stuff when it's 50% off. A lot cheaper then North Face and in many ways much more rugged.
If you're buying North Face to look good while conquering some urban mountain, then carry on.
I've spent the last 4 winters in a NF Denali, comfortable and warm, worth every penny. I have 4 or 5 off name fleece jackets. The Denali is the one I always go back to. I do hate how popular they are, but its comfortable and warm. The cheaper fleeces look like crap after you wash them, the wrist band elastics fall apart, stitching comes undone, and they are not as thick. You get what you pay for. I just bought a Denali WindPro from the REI deal 2 weeks ago for $99 shipped. I hope to get many years out of this new Denali. I did try a Mountain Hardwear Monkey Man this winter too, for me the jacket was too short and the arms were too long, it also looked like a womans jacket. I sent it back.
