Great Performance Fit
May 08, 2008

Great jacket for cool weather and layering. Even use extensively on sunny days on the slopes. For those with a narrow waist the performance fit is great. Wear it so much I bought another color!


last years fit was better.
December 13, 2009

I am 6ft 190# thin, athletic build. I tried last years momentum jacket on and it fit great but I did not purchase it. I purchased this years jacket over the internet. The fit is not the same. The sleeves are more baggy, no monkey thumbs, and it is too short for me. I like the athletic fit and the stretch material is great but I am giving this one to my bro.

This jacket works great for a chilly or even cold day when I need something to wear to the office, actually was overheated at times in 55 degree weather I'm 6'5 200lbs, and wear a Large, could have ordered a XL, but arms would have been too long.

Beautiful Jacket! Excellent Value
December 27, 2007

Purchased for my son for Christmas. Very lightweight, but warm, also very stylish..

January 08, 2010

Warm enough to wear alone, and thin enough to layer! Extremely satisfied with this jacket-would recommend to anyone!

Kick-butt jacket
March 08, 2006

The jacket fits great and is an excellent layer underneath my shell for boarding. Its surprisingly warm drys fast and provides some blockage from the wind.

Great Jacket!
February 13, 2007

I love this jacket and can't seem to go anywhere without these days. It is lightweight, yet warm and stylish. I have received many compliments on it so I recently ordered another one in a different color. easy 4 star.
November 12, 2007

I was surprised how easily it fits and how comfortable it is. You won't be disappointed.

A must have
May 24, 2006

This jacket is just great. It fits perfect and keeps you very comfortable and warm during those cold days. It's also very tough and can take a beating.

This Jacket is the Greatest
May 11, 2006

I just got my jacket today and it is really nice. It's light and will be great for working out and just wearing around. The fit and look is perfect.

great light jacket
November 09, 2008

Very comfortable and versatile. The monkey thumbs are nice, and if you do not utilize them, the sleeves to do not feel awkward. A very nice jacket!

Excellent Athletic Fleece Jacket
October 28, 2007

Fits well, looks great and moves appropriately for an athletic jacket. Looks very impressive for casual wear as well.

Excellent multifunctional jacket!
November 28, 2007

This is probably one of the coolest North Face jackets I have ever purchased. I have worn this to the gym and to the office. Fits great and I plan to use it as a layering piece for the ski season!

Great jacket
April 28, 2008

This jacket fits nicely. I am about 5'11" and the large fits me well. Not too tight, not too loose.

lightweight but warm,awesome color
July 28, 2008

this jacket is very lightweight but still has some warmth to it. the colors are excellent and i love the thumb loops-they'll come in handy when i use it as a layer during winter playtime!

A must
January 03, 2007

Great Jacket..If you are looking for something to protect you on cool days this is your jacket. Nice slim flit, breathes well, and for me is ideal in temperatures between 40 and 60 degrees. For active outdoor people this is a must

January 16, 2007

This is an great jacket and is surprisingly warm. It looks like a jacket that isn't for the cold, but it works for me. It is on the expensive side, but if you are looking for a lightweight, warm jacket, I highly recommend it!

Great all-season jacket. (Almost all)
January 05, 2009

Although waterproofing is the only thing it lacks, I lost my first Momentum jacket in an unfortunate accident after two years of constant wear. The fit is comfortable and perfect for the average to skinny build. May I say flattering as well on anybody, as far as active wear goes. Comfortable indoors and a level of breathability welcomed hiking any 14ner. Great for biking and early morning activity before the sun begins to warm-up the world. The asphalt/black color is a perfect quick jacket for any casual outfit as well. About to purchase my second and will keep coming back.

Excellent Jacket -- Arms too long
January 27, 2007

This jacket is a great layering piece but the arms are a bit long. I did not really care for the thumb holes but if that is something you want then by all means this is an excellent purchase. Overall, a good product.

Great Jacket

I ordered this for my son and he loves it. It is very lightweight, but quite warm. The thumb holes are fun. It does run a little short,but is fine for his 5'10" frame.

Awesome jacket
August 19, 2009

As someone who sweats a lot, this is a great jacket for keeping you warm without overheating on long runs. 2 thumbs up!

January 02, 2008

ive had mine for about 2 years, wear it for everything. running, camping, school, hiking, even around the house. the perfect jacket. period. i just got my second one which is a different color and i love this jacket soooo much. just buy!

Great North Face Jacket
February 19, 2007

I've owned this jacket for about three years now, and I love it. It's very comfortable, warm, lightweight, and it zips right into my North Face Mountain Light Jacket as an insulating liner. It's still in great shape after a lot of use, which is typical for North Face quality products.

The best Fleece Jacket I have!
May 21, 2009

This awesome Fleece Jacket can be used for so many purposes! E.g. as a great middle layer when I ski, as a presentable fleece on a flight, as the (beyond doubt) preferred fleece to wear under my bike-jacket during the fall and winter. I think you got the picture by now. This is the fleece I use the most!

October 23, 2009

It's light but warm (especially if you're moving around a lot) and doesn't restrict movement. There are no monkey thumbs on the latest models, and it's a little shorter than I'm used to, but nothing I can't deal with. It might seem a bit pricy, but you're paying for North Face quality, which is superior.

I ordered a similar jackets for my son-in-law and daughter last year for christmas. They loved them and wear them all the time. I saw these and thought I would get some shopping done for christmas. I know my son-in-law will enjoy wearing this one for running and casual wear. North Face I feel is always great quality and lasts.

Good jacket
October 29, 2006

This jacket is very comfy but is basically restricted to an inner layer once the weather gets cold and windy like this time of year in New England. Other than that, like most TNF products, its well made.

Great Coat
March 26, 2008

A warm great coat that is great for spring.

Excellent garment!
December 16, 2007

Terrific, athletic fit. Very functional - works in cool to colder weather - and fashionable! I have only worn the jacket a few times and have already received multiple compliments from men and women

Just love the jacket, I've worn it everyday since I received it. Fits great. Monkey thumbs are perfect for the colder weather and the jacket is going to be great when golf season starts up again in Michigan.

Pros: Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance

Sporty, Stylish, Light Jacket. Great Value!
December 04, 2007

Fits well, looks good and, best of all, my girlfriend loves it (on me, of course). Great for layering on colder days and as a single coat when a bit warmer. Thanks!!!

Very Happy!!
January 22, 2008

My husband loves his new North Face fleece Jacket ever since the day he saw it online he just kept telling me I have to get this jacket over and over until one day he said honey please order the jacket please and that's just what we did and he just can't stop wearing it, good fit, good quality clothing the best

February 13, 2008

I love this jacket. I bought it a little on the smaller size on purpose and actually wear it more like a shirt more than a jacket.

Very Satisfied!
July 19, 2010

I bought this jacket for my boyfriend who is not always easy to shop for, but loved this jacket. It's not too heavy but pretty warm and looks great!

Lightweight & Warm
April 17, 2006

The Momentum jacket is surprisingly warm and wind resistant for its weight. I also like the close athletic fit but be aware that the sizes actually run a little smaller than standard. The sleeves are typical North Face length (too long) but the monkey hole is a nice feature.

This is a great jacket that looks awesome and fits your body perfectly. It is so light weight that you don't feel anything. It repels some water, but does not work well to protect you from wind. It is a great but for the price. You may want to add another layer during harsh winter.

I love it, when i hiking on mountain, this jacket can prevent the wind into your neck and keep you warm. The jacket is light so you can tie it on your waist. I will take it to the Yosemite National park this month, and defintly it will be necessity equipment!

The best fleece I've ever had!

December 22, 2007

Very good if you want an athletic cut light thin jackets. I really like this jacket!

A little short in the front, longer in the back
February 04, 2007

Great comfortable jacket. However, it's a little short in the front so your t-shirt often drapes out.

May 27, 2008

Fantastic layering or spring/fall jacket. It is very lightweight but built with the solid North Face design and technology. Moderately water resistant and does a great job keeping you toasty for a thin jacket. Fits true to size, but a bit on the athletic cut so it is meant to be slightly tight.

Great for layering or alone for cool weather. Not windproof like a Apex bionic and much lighter. Very comfortable with a close fit. Great for running biking hiking etc.

Very Nice
January 28, 2007

It is just what I wanted. It fits just right and I have no problems with the jacket.

Good for its limited purpose.
January 25, 2010

This a good jacket for athletic activity in mild weather but don't think you going to train in the dead of winter with it. Although the fabric keeps moisture out for a while, it does little to block the wind. The size is also a slight issue. I'm only 6' and I wish the jacket was an inch or two longer. All in all a decent buy for the money if your looking for another layer you can shed during cold weather training.

Great Jacket for the Fall / Spring
December 27, 2009

This is a great jacket for the in between weather. It's a great fit and even looks good over a hooded sweatshirt for extra warmth.

great priece, fit, customer sevice, and more selection, quick
August 18, 2010

fast delivery, great fit, searched local retail store, $40.00 to $50.00 more, less than other online store with more selections

Excellent fleece, great deal
October 04, 2007

Just got this about a week or so ago and man is this thing sweet. Very lightweight and packable. Very very warm. I wore it a shell over an under armour sleevless tank to go running at night. This thing keeps u toasty, super warm. Granted its not quite as cold this year as last on the east coast (NJ) but I'm looking forward to putting this through its paces. I got primarily to use a soft shell on warmer days and fall day trips in the ramapo highlands and High Point. I also plan to use it as a mid-layer for snowboarding this year. The Monkey cuffs are excellent and the sleeves have a good fit but still stretch when you bend over to tie shoes or reach overhead. I'm 6'5" tall and 185lbs. The X-lrg fits like a glove and still has room under it for a base layer and mid-weight long sleeve top or a heavy weight top alone. Overall A great value, especially if u get one of the discontinued colors. Also, while no specifically waterproof, it held up well to a few early morning showers. No water got in, but I did get a little clammy on the inside from sweat. All in all I highly recommend it for it technical ability, confort, quality and price. Not to mention that everyone who's seen it asks me where they can get one. I tell the of course. Great service from these guys. this will be my 4 or fifth order in as many weeks. Great job Altrec! keep up the good work, excellent service and Great prices..

A Great Choice....

This jacket is really a must buy! I looks good, fits well,keeps your body at a comfortable temparature and is lightweight. The first day i wore it out and about i got a couple of good comments!Its a bit pricey, but worth every cent.

Great jacket, kinda pricey!
May 26, 2006

This jacket is really quite comfortable and warm. A sharp breeze breaks it though. Some of the lettering may fray. However it is really comfy and incredibly warm!

Amazing material
April 24, 2010

Great light jacket for doing just about anything...perfect for spring or fall, and it repels rain nicely too. Great for playing sports or running. The material is very flexible and comfortable...this makes the jacket. Try the bright citronelle green color!!!

Awesome liner!
December 22, 2007

Was looking for a liner for a Northface jacket I'd purchased last year from the Summit series, and the fleece I'd ordered this year from the Flight series worked perfectly. I'm from FL and working in Baltimore this winter downtown, and this jacket under my previously purchased jacket is awesome -- keeps me toasty warm and comfortable for those 6 am treks to the Medical Center for work. Highly recommend if looking for a liner!

Nice Jacket! I like it however the sleeves run very long.
April 05, 2008

This is a very practical and nice jacket and good for spring weather. However, the sleeves run long. I wear a large in TNF clothing but the sleeves on this jacket are ridiculously long.

Excellent Jacket!
July 15, 2007

Liked it so much, I bought another one! Very versatile: wear it by itself or use it to layer. Nice looking and very comfortable.
