With body-mapping technology, The North Face Impulse 1/2 Zip Hoodie for Women regulates body temperature for the active inclined. This pull-over that is more open knit at the arm pits and sides for greater breathability and closed knit at the core to maintain warmth, also wraps its flat-locked seams for the ultimate in performance comfort. Staying dry, cool and chafe-free on long runs, tempo cycles, or fast and light mountain ventures, this half-zip hoody features an elastic-bound edge on the hood for a quick fit, internal mitt cuffs to keep the wrists covered in cool air and drop-tail hem to ensure coverage under extreme effort. For long days in the sun its UPF 30 (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) blocks burning from intense rays, while a left forearm pocket holds chapstick, sun block, and keys. Stopping at nothing to provide athletes with the best possible garment for light and fast forays, the TNF Women's Impulse 1/2 Zip Hoodie is ready to take it to the limit.

Love this hoody
February 13, 2012

This hoody is a perfect second layer for backcountry skiing, running, or hiking in the cold mornings of summer. It wicks well and I love the hood also covers part of your face. I also like the hand mitts if you don't want to take the time to put on gloves, they provide enough warmth on their own sometimes. I did buy one size smaller that I usually do, runs a bit big. The purple is a great color. Hard to go wrong with Northface.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Cons: runs a little big.

Great comfort
April 29, 2012

This impulse hoodie is light weight, yet keeps you warm on a chilly day. However the sizing runs large. The sleeves were way too long on me. I ordered an extra large but I should of ordered a large. The colors of black and purple are very vibrant. I would recommend this hoodie.

Pros: Great design, Performance, Cons: sleeves too long

Excellent Work Out Top
April 09, 2012

I live in Duluth, MN where even in April..... IT SNOWS! UGhH! My sister and I went on an early morning run and I was struggling to keep my hands warm. She already owned this top and she was using the built in mittens! WONDERFUL! After watching her comfort, I right away purchased one for myself. I couldn't be happier with this top! It is comfortable, warm and the mittens built into the sleeves are AMAZING! I am 5'7" 140 lbs and the M fit me perfectly. I have washed it twice now and hung to dry. It holds up to washing beautifully. I am going to order a second top right now! BUY THIS PRODUCT, YOU WON'T REGRET IT!

Pros: Great design, Performance, Ease of use

I bought this shirt in green and wear it so much that I bought a black one too! I wear it everywhere; it keeps me dry when I'm hiking, warm on a cold morning, it fits me well. It's highly durable, comfortable and fashionable....people always comment on how nice it is. I just love The North Face, it never disappoints!
