One of the best features about The North Face's Denali Vest is its amazing versatility. While designed primarily for mountaineering, this vest is also ideal for maintaining torso warmth while running, hiking or cross-country skiing, especially when worn over a moisture-wicking long sleeve workout shirt. It's zip-in compatible, so you can attach it to other North Face Shells and jackets and wear it as a thermal middle layer.

One of my best clothing investments I have purchased in a long, long time. It fits great and the quality of workmanship is superb. It is everything you have described it and more. Could not me happier. Thanks for your quality service as well.

Absolutely No Compalints

Free Shipping and Free Returns...awesome concept! I purchased an XL North Faced Denali Vest for my father and it was too big for him, so I just utilized the pre-paid shipping label provided by Altrec and exchanged it for a smaller size. No reason to go anywhere else but Altrec!

toasty vest
December 27, 2004

Great vest to wear under my 700 nuptse jacket. Also great all by itself on moderate days.

January 21, 2004

I love the vest, it has become me new favorite article of clothing. I wear it every where i go. It is actually much warmer than i thought as-well. Nothing but good things to say about it!

Great purchase
August 27, 2007

Was looking at the Denali fleece but decided on the vest instead. Great construction and durability. Looking forward to hitting the slopes this spring with this as well as tail gaiting this fall. Ordered a Medium and I am 5' 11" and 200lbs. Fits almost perfect. Glad I got a M instead of a L. Highly recommended!

December 17, 2007

The quality of construction, style and fit are what sold me on the purchase of the Denali. Lightweight, warm, and extremely versatile. I should have bought this a long time ago.

Great item
March 04, 2005

Just bought the Denali vest. Great item. Esp for the chilly days in the Bay Area. Wear it ever day.

You can't ask for a better vest
March 04, 2006

This vest is great for wearing under a shell when your on the slopes. A full fleece jacket is too restrictive in the arms and this vest does a great job keeping the core warm.

If You Like The Jacket, Then You Will Love This Vest
November 12, 2008

As great looking as the jacket, but in a vest. It's great with a long sleeve shirt. very warm and soft. Plus it's a North Face so you can't go wrong. Loads of pockets.

A great vest
March 23, 2005

I'm not a big fan of vests. Actually for the most part, I hate vests. But the denali vest? It sure changed my mine. It's great item, perfect for any type of activity and weather.

March 20, 2006

excellent jacket, very warm

Universal, Durable Vest
January 01, 2004

The Denali Vest fitted my needs for my work and my free time. very impressed with the durability and construction. Though the vest is made specifically for cold weather, I found that I was able to wear it in mild climates without any discomfort, thus being universal in that degree. North Face has seemed to discover the simple solution, "Make a great worth while product, and it will sell itself". Thankyou!

January 06, 2006

Thank you for the prompt delivery. This was a Holiday Gift and it was exactly what we thought it would be.

Worth Every Cent.
May 07, 2005

Definitely the best vest I've ever purchased. Worth every cent. Nice pockets for both hands and cargo. Adjustable elastic waistband, and its extremely comfortable, yet rugged at the same time. The only fault I could find with it was that it doesn't have an inside pocket. Still, the overall quality of this vest is unparalleled and I would recommend it to anybody interested in camping, hiking, backpacking, etc.

Best Vest I own
January 22, 2007

The Denali is by far the best vest. It has a great length down below the waist. It has great pockets and high end zippers. It is warm.

Awesome vest
April 25, 2005

Have already worn it. Awesome vest.

Warm jacket, but bulkey
November 17, 2006

If you need a jacket that offers great warmth, then this is the one for you. But it is a relaxed fit. This means there is extra fabric in the pit area and around the torso. The quality is on par with other North Face products.

Must have
July 19, 2004

High quality and a perfect fit. This vest is worth the extra money and will last a life time. If you don't buy this one, you will always wish you had...

An Excellent inVESTment
September 06, 2005

Pros: + lightweight and compressible + warm to the touch + quality mid-layer insulation even for non-TNF coats + super low Altrec price Cons: + jacket is a bit larger than expected + wind resistance with this alone isn't great Overall: + quality mid-layer for running errands, stylish, and durable Bottom line: + very functional, durable, quality vest (from a buyer who doesn't like vests to begin with!!!)

June 09, 2005

these vests look cool and are warm however if you dont have a very long torso they tend to bunch up towards the waist line if you cinch it otherwise the vest drapes past the waist line. personaly I like a vest thats snug at the waist.

Excellent under a raincoat
December 18, 2003

For those of us who have to wear business attire and do not have raincoats with insulation, the Denali vest is the perfect solution. Worn over your suit coat and under your raincoat, it provides warmth for windy, cold and rainy days standing on commuter platforms.

Light weight and is comfortable
November 12, 2005

This vest is by far the best vest I have ever purchased. The pockets are well designed and they come in handy. I am a Big fan of vests, thus I wear mine all the time.

Great vest
March 04, 2006

Love this vest. I ride my big horse all winter. This vest has been perfect. Comfortable. Light. Sturdy.

Another great North Face purchase
February 12, 2005

The North Face Denali Vest has been a great alternative to the Denali Jacket. I get more usage from the vest as it allows me to use it while spring skiing and hiking. My arm movements are less restrictive and it keeps my core warmth intact. It's also quite fashionable with any number of other garments. Go figure!

the cadillac of vests
March 18, 2005

everything i've come to expect from the north face is in this vest. it's compatible with my enigma acclimate's zip-in, so it makes a good layer when i ski, the craftsmanship is superb as well. pockets right where you need them, and sternum/hip belts don't cover them. especially warm, and just the right amount of cover. five stars to the classic, unchangeable, hallmark of vests, the denali. and when no one else had it in any color but black, and any size but medium, altrec came through with the wonderfully retro indigo blue.

Great product
January 03, 2007

I have worn denali jackets for a couple of years and my husband wanted a vest. The denali vest is great. The warmth and style suit him and the vest is not bulky like others you may find. It's a great product, well made and definitely a great buy! We will continue buying North Face for our family.

great products
November 30, 2004

Outstanding products received and excellent customer service. I have used both vest and jackets and they are the best.

Great coat, but more boxy cut than other North Face products
February 07, 2006

Really a great vest but much roomier across the chest and stomach area than other TNF products. This is really nice for cool fall days or as an insulator with a shell. This is a nice product but I gave this away and got the Redpoint vest instead and it is a much better fit and I love the appearance more than the Denali vest.

best vest ever
February 26, 2006

My girlfriend thinks its ridiculous due to its lack of sleeves yet it is totally worth the investment and the pockets are awesome.

Great product
August 25, 2006

This is the second one I have owned. I am very cold natured and this vest/jacket keeps me toasty warm without a lot of bulk. It's wonderful to be able to zip it my my gortex jacket on even colder days.

I was very happy with the order
June 01, 2004

I was very pleased with my recent order. Thanks for the great service.

Great Jacket!
July 14, 2004

Great versitile vest jacket. I keep it in my truck for all types of conditions. Durable, water resistant, plenty of pockets and zips into compatible North Face outershell. A must for active people on the go!

Love the vest! Great service!
February 03, 2006

I ordered this vest for my husband's birthday. He loved the vest and thought it fit him well. The website was full of information on the vest and I felt very confident when purchasing the vest. Thanks Altrec!

Terrific product coupled with fast service.
February 07, 2006

Great vest. Very durable. Well made. I bought this for my son who uses it under all his jackets or on its own. Hard to find a better vest.

Great alternative when a jacket is not needed
January 03, 2007

The Northface Denali vest is the perfect solution. It is light and warm and versitile for all weather conditions!

Don't go through winter without it!
July 25, 2004

Simply one of the most useful pieces of clothing you can have in your wardrobe if you live in any cold climate. It is, as everything North Face makes, extremely carefully thought out and well-constructed. The vest is great with a variety of layering clothing or simply by itself.
