On a dawn patrol during the winter solstice you turn from your lofty perch to watch the dancing headlamps of others with similar inspiration. Pressing the uptrack pace along the edge of the 'Phantom' as you measure the distance to the summit of Mt. Snoqualmie, The North Face Momentum Jacket for women takes on outerwear status while you're building up aerobic steam.

Sleek with an athletic fit, this fleece jacket's incredible TKA Superstretch fabric allows mobility so you can flow through uphill kick turns like you never changed direction. It has a smooth, non-pilling outer surface and a soft, fuzzy inner face. Layering perfectly under a weatherproof shell upon reaching the top, the Momentum toasts your core while in parade rest. Surveying the mountain scene in the brightening light, you move energy food from the jacket's two hand pockets and reapply chapstick from the tube in the chest pocket.

Offering full zip performance during stellar endeavors, the TNF Women's Momentum Jacket is at its best during both the dark uphill trek and on the thigh burning descent in morning alpenglow.


  • Fabric: mesh knit TKA Superstretch; 93% polyester, 7% elastane; 251 g/sq m (74 oz/sq yd)
  • Vislon center front zipper
  • Diagonal chest pocket with invisible zip

Perfect shoulder season fleece
August 18, 2013

Bought this for my GF as a mid layer zip fleece to wear around town and camping/backpacking. We live in SoCal and its perfect for the cool beach breeze evenings. The jacket is stylish and looks good for walking around town. It's also a perfect layering fleece for camping and backpacking.

Best jacket ever
September 24, 2012

I love this jacket and the way it fits! It is by far worth the price. It is sweat free and won't wear out when I wash it. I like the color of it and the way it fits me!

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value

Comfortable and Warm
October 19, 2011

I bought this as a somewhat light, comfortable jacket to throw on for after soccer or when doing other athletic activites. I was pleased with how nice it fits and would definitely buy other North Face products. I have only worn it a few times though, so hopefully it will hold up well.

Made different than past years
October 03, 2012

I have had three of these jackets in the past, and feel that they are not made a warm as they had been. I would say it is a bit warmer than a good sweater. With the older model, I would say you could wear it in comfort to about 32 degrees! Material is not a dense and wind protective.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Cons: Cost, quality of material

September 26, 2011

I love this jacket great look something quick & easy to throw on. Easy to clean. Keeps me warm. I would recommend this as a great fall jacket. I want in all colors :-)


Good Buy
June 01, 2011

This is a perfect light weight jacket. Good for spring, cold summer, fall, early morning, etc. Great design that I can wear it in all kinds of activities. Very comfortable, easy to pack, plus the lovely color I choose....


Lightweight, OH-SO-COMFORTABLE, soft & stretchy
August 31, 2009

AWESOME LIGHTWEIGHT JACKET. I LOVE ME SOME TKA Stretch fleece TNF makes and bought two more of these. It's great for layering, being low density with a smooth outside surface. The fit is generous, so it's very comfortable (I'm a size 16 with long arms and torso; the XL is comfortably loose). Surprisingly it does not pick up much lint. Wears well over smooth knit shirts (cotton & otherwise), but not so well over fleece or sweaters. I'm from a warmer climate but find this useful in over-AC'd malls or theaters. They are great for traveling; they always seem to look great! Very versatile and functional. AURORA PINK is a medium bubble-gummy pink w/grey that does NOT match my asphalt grey TNF pants.

awesome for the cold weather
December 08, 2009

great thin jacket that keeps you warm

great,lightweight cover
July 02, 2009

This is the perfect alternative to a light weight sweatshirt. It looks good on as well. I bought white which really doesn"t attract hair from my dog. Amazing. I wear a 10-12 and I purchased a Med. The wrist opening could be a smig bigger but if you are a runner,it would be perfect.

March 11, 2013

Purchased this jacket a little to late to get the full effects of it. It is a very warm jacket. Just wish I had gotten it in November. But on the other hand I will have it come this fall.

Pros: Great design, Performance, Ease of use

a real favorite
November 30, 2010

This is the second Momentum jacket I have purchased. It is one of my favorite items. It's durable and versatile, a good all-weather jacket that goes well with almost anything. It fits nicely and is true-to size.


Soooo Comfortable
March 21, 2011

I absolutely love this jacket. I can wear it year 'round; layer it in the winter, and of course it is perfect for spring, fall, and those cooler summer nights or rainy days. I love it because it fits me more like a comfy fitted shirt than a jacket. It is very stretchy and moves with me, it does not "ride up" and I don't have to keep "tugging" at it. This is not my first TNF Momentum jacket, and I am certainly interested in purchasing other colors as well. These jackets wash very easily and pack very well for trips. I find the Momentum jacket to be very "sporty", I often wear my jackets with leggings however, they look awesome with jeans too! I also like how fitted the Momentum jacket is (very flattering), it is not bulky at all. I think this jacket is perfect for all ages and can be worn in any season.

October 20, 2009

love it . Very light weight. Wish i purchased few more.

Satisfied customer!!!
March 15, 2011

always happy with the TNF clothing...and will highly recommend the to other customers...what you see is what you get in this site! The momemtum jacket is best for spring season and it's the best jacket when you runs outside because it dries up your sweats quickly...

Great for Layering or Alone
April 13, 2013

I bought this and the RDT 300 to layer under the North Face Resolve jacket for my upcoming trip to Iceland. I feel prepared for the predicted cool, damp and windy weather we may encounter. The Fuschia Pink is a bit bold, but it matches the lining/trim on the Grey Resolve jacket.

Pros: Build quality, Performance

Great Price
December 26, 2009

The jacket is great and so light weight! its very warm and its not bulky. and the site delivers quickly! I received mine as a christmas present and i've worn it everyday.

Awesome gift for Christmas
December 16, 2009

Warm and sleek, non binding - perfect for the athelete in your family. Fast and easy delivery.

Comfy and stylish
October 20, 2009

This jacket puts comfortable and stylish into one package. It's a snug fit, but not too tight, and it's surprisingly warm for it's light and thin appearance. In my opinion, it's also really stylish. It lacks the bulk that most cold-weather jackets have, so that's a plus in my book. Overall it's a great buy and totally worth the money for what you get.

Very good jacket, perfect fit and great wind blocker.
December 12, 2009

The jacket is very flexible, and is great under a shell since it doesn't bind. Very warm for its thickness.

Great Jacket
November 09, 2011

Great Jacket, very comfortable, feels great on, it looks great... but the sleeves are a bit tight. If you plan on wearing a thin top under order your size, if you want something thicker I would order a size larger.

Pros: Great design, Cons: small in sleeves

Great jacket! Very comfortable. Great fit! Size runs true to size. Lightweight yet warm. Love it!

Does Not Disappoint!

I love North Face
December 28, 2011

I love North Face so when my friend told me about Altrec I was ecstatic! Great coats and jackets at equally great prices count me in! This jacket is so comfortable and is flattering to a curvy figure. It is nice and warm. It is thin enough to be used as a layer or on it's own on a chilly day.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Great value

Quality Jacket
November 07, 2011

My girlfriend is a big fan of this jacket! Great for cool temps, and even in the cold it holds up decently well in terms of warmth. The hybrid-ness of the jacket is great, giving it the comfort of fleece but not the appearance of wearing only a fleece out and having the appearance of a jacket. This makes it hold up slightly better in the rain, especially in misting conditions. Overall a great jacket with great fit! Runs a wee bit small, but I'd say its on par with most other North Face products

Fantastic Jacket
October 20, 2009

This is not my first North Face jacket and it will not be my last. It is lightweight, soft and stretchy. In a light sprinkle it will keep you pretty dry. Although it is thin enough to layer it keeps you warm when you need it. I would buy this jacket again.


January 04, 2011

Excellent all around jacket to wear at work, outdoors, in cool fall weather. Jacket is very light weight but provides great warmth and comfort. Highly recommended to anyone. Very durable and machine washable.

from Franklin, Wisconsin

Wow - what a jacket!
March 23, 2011

After purchasing Momentum jackets for each of my college-aged daughters and hearing about how they "absolutely loved" them, I thought it was time to order one for myself. The jacket fits true to size and is easy to wear. It provides great wind and minor rain protection. This is a very well made, comfortable and good looking jacket. I plan on ordering another in a different color!


Casual Wear
February 27, 2011

Perfect jacket for casual wear! Simple design, not too flashy. Cuffs a bit odd at first, cone concept, intent to keep out cold winds. Chest, snug fit for women bust 38C-D. Overall - highly recommend!


Momentum Jacket
February 07, 2011

This is my second Momentum jacket. I purchased the jackets to run outside in the NJ winters. I wore a base layer, a top, and this jacket in tempertures below 20 degrees and I felt comfortable. The jacket is roomy but not boxy or bulky. I'm petite and normally wear a size small top. The size small allowed me to wear layers under it. I also wore the Momemtum jacket under my ski jacket while skiing in Vermont.

I was constantly looking for jacket. This TNF Momentum jacket ended my search. It is not as thick and bulky as the fleece jacket, instead it provides a nice fit to accommodate woman's body at the same time still has the "sporty" look. It can be wore under a raincoat or by itself. Highly recommend it!

March 12, 2012

My mom bought me this jacket. I love it. I am 5ft 4 in, about 115LBS, and I had to exchange the small for the XSmall. It fits great. I usually wear a tshirt or tank underneath and its perfect. I would absolutely recomment to a friend.

Nice and comfy..very warm. With the easy purchase and checkout along with quick delivery, this is definitely a very good first time experience for me with your company. I will continue to order your products.


Stylish, Comfortable, and Athletically Functional
November 14, 2009

This is a nice athletically cut jacket that can be used either as a midlayer or primary jacket depending on the temperature and your activities. Although it has a trimmer cut, it is not as slim as the athletic cut pieces in the Arc Teryx line. The fabric is stretchy, so there is a bit of give where it may be needed. I typically where XS in jackets, and I am able to fit a midweight wool base layer under this without a problem. I could well add another thin layer, and it still would be okay. Although the fabric is thin, it is surprisingly warm. The jacket has three nice pockets all of which are very functional in size and placement. The only thing that prevents this jacket from being a five star piece for me is that I wish it was a little longer. I am 5'6, and the XS comes down to my waist. It is not too short though - I just wish it was a tiny bit longer. The arms are perfect in length, and a thin elastic cuff insures that the sleeves stay where you want them. Overall, the Momentum is a great little jacket that is stylish, comfortable, and athletically functional.

Great jacket!
February 18, 2010

I just ordered this and LOVE it, but the small is too big (which I wouldn't have expected sine I'm 5'3" and about 120 lbs). I am returning the small and trying an XS. Keeping my fingers crossed because I love this jacket! On a side note, Altrec has phenomenally fast shipping - thank you!!

Women's Momentum Jacket
November 13, 2010

I absolutely love this jacket! I bought my first one in 2007 and have purchased 2 more since (in different colors). The material is light weight and stretchy which is perfect for layering. It's also very stylish in every color. I usually wear it under my Northface Nuptse jacket when it's very cold and windy out or by itself when the weather is cool. I wear a size Large (5'5 size 14) and find that the fit is true to size, not tight at all. It wipes clean very easy which means I hardly every wash it. As a mother of two young boys I tend to get a bit messy and find that baby wipes is all I need to get any spills off. I would highly recommend this jacket.

Best Lightweight Jacket!
October 05, 2011

I LOVE this jacket!! It fits perfectly as I am petite and it is SO comfortable! I've worn it as a casual jacket (like you'd wear a hoodie) and as an outergarment on a rather chilly night. The material kept me perfectly warm while watching a football game outdoors. I hope to order another one in blue. THANK YOU!

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use, Great value

This is the one!
May 24, 2009

Perfect jacket - everyone in my family owns multiple colors of this jacket we love it so much. It is figure flattering in both the men's and women's styles. I pack at least two for every trip I go on since they always look sharp and they're super versatile. Run a few miles in it, wear it shopping, throw it on at work, use it to layer while skiing, pack it in your hand bag for freezing movie theatres - it's great. It doesn't pick up dog hair (which is miraculous in my household) and it doesn't smell even after wearing it running for a week without washing it. It isn't wind or waterproof, but it does layer really well if you throw a jacket over it (it is not bulky even though it's cozy). If it came down to giving up my TV and microwave or keeping this jacket - I'd take the jacket without hesitation, it's that good.


Very Pleased

Best every day jacket
December 05, 2010

I work at a school where it is aways cold. I was looking for a sleek jacket that I could wear every day to keep me warm while working. I also layer this under my North Face Tri-Climate for my 3 recesses a day! Keeps me very warm! I love this jacket!


great base layer
November 12, 2010

Love this jacket! The sleeves are nice and long. I ended up putting a sweatshirt over the top of it and pulled the jacket sleeves down over my hands on a cold 5 hour bike ride and was very pleased with myself and my momentum jacket!


Awesome lightweight fleece

Simply Attractive Jacket
June 23, 2013

When I say 'Simply Attractive', I mean that the jacket is just plain good-looking. There are no bedazzled jewels, buttons, snaps or other small gadgets hanging off the jacket. You will only find the two North Face logos, a small zippered pocket by the front right shoulder and two zippered side hand pockets. All zippers are black, very discreet and they zip nicely- no skipping or jamming or splitting. Technically there are two large pockets on the inside with a small opening sewn at the bottom of one corner, probably if you wanted to stash your iPod/mp3 player there and then string the headphone cord thru the opening to wear the cord on the inside of your jacket. The jacket is thin, which makes it so sleek, but very WARM and COMFORTABLE. I will wear this well into the fall and early winter. It is comprised mostly of polyester, but soft and fleecy on the inside, smooth/non-pilling on the outside and very breathable. I am only 5'1" but I have muscular arms/upper body and broad shoulders and, well alright...I'm a little 'chesty' I chose Medium for size. It is a bit roomier than I wanted and the sleeves are 2 inches too long. I tried a Small on in a store, but I knew the upper sleeve areas would get uncomfortable quickly. I happened to purchase the jacket on sale, but I wasn't going to pay the regular price in the store. Of course, it's the name we're all paying for, I know.

Pros: Great design, Performance, Cons: Cost

I love the fit, and it's the perfect weight. Fitted enough not to look slouchy but still roomy enough to layer. I can't wait until it's cool enough to wear it more!
