Many breathable and wicking fleece softshell apparel feel great on calm days, but quickly lose thermal retention in moderate winter breezes. Whether you walk windswept ridges, wander stormy beaches or trek the concrete canyons of the central business district, take along the windproof protection and exquisite warmth of this Women's Sentinel Thermal Jacket from The North Face. It features an external windproof Gore Windstopper® soft shell fabric backed with a warm and wicking raschel fleece lining. The jacket cut is an alpine fit, so it tapers a little closer to your core without hindering your mobility with a bunch of fabric bunching. Also keep in mind that while The North Face Women's Sentinel Thermal Jacket scores a wind permeability rating of 0 CFM, it's highly water resistant--but not waterproof. This thermal softshell is an ideal utility piece that works well for a range of windy outdoor activities, including hiking, camping and climbing.


  • Body fabric: 50D 427 g/m², 12.8 oz/yd² Gore Windstopper™ soft shell
  • Lining fabric: high loft raschel polyester fleece
  • Wind permeability rated at 0 CFM (windproof)
  • Brushed collar lining
  • Elastic bound cuffs to seal out breezes
  • Internal security pocket
  • Zippered handwarmer pockets

Great Looking Jacket, but Small Fit
December 16, 2009

I have bought many North Face products in the past. This jacket has a great design and look. The jacket is super light weight. I had to return the jacket due to the fit. The jacket is not true to size, order a size larger than normal. The jacket is made for a slender body type

amazing jacket
December 06, 2010

I have this coat in another color and loved it so much I bought one for my daughter. She also loves it so much that my husband and son asked for one. It is light weight, not bulky but still warm. I would not ski in it on or wear it on bad, winter days but it is good for cold days and does block the wind. If you want to wear something under it, I would order up a size. I am 5'6" and about 130 lbs and I wear a size large- if that helps anyone. I do have broad shoulders. My kids have a North Face Denali Jacket but dog hair sticks to it like crazy and we do not have that problem with this jacket. It has had a lot of use and still looks like new

Great jacket, very flattering fit. I am a 34C, and have no trouble with the bust size on a small. I wore it today in an unexpected rain storm and was shocked at how well it performed. (Rain resistant is what the tag says)

warm jacket
May 13, 2010

I think this is a nice jacket and I disagree with a reviewer who said that it was too tight in the chest. Maybe for a much more busty person, but I won't go there. I think there is a lot of room for shoulder movement although I think the Marmot SharpPoint with the pit zips gives a bit more room. I do wish this jacket had pit zips and an internal pocket. Either way the jacket has more substantial fleece than other soft shells. and the shell part of it doesn't make that terrible crinkle noise

Great purchase for winter
November 19, 2010

I was looking for a fitted (not bulky), but really warm jacket for the winter and found it in the Sentinel. I normally wear a small (5'5", 117 lbs) but had to buy this in a medium...the small was a little short in front and a little tight around the chest and shoulders (I'm a 34B). The medium is still fitted, but gives me more room to layer a sweater underneath and still be mobile. Overall, the jacket is really soft, both inside and out and does a great job against the wind and cold. I'm very happy with this jacket.

very warm
December 27, 2012

this coat tends to run a little small so I would recommend ordering up one size larger than normal. this coat is very warm and stylish. warm enough for the harsh upper Midwest winters

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

Great jacket
February 27, 2010

This jacket is slim, soft in the inside and excellent for anything outdoors. I love it. I needed something that wasn't bulky. It's breathable and keeps the wind out.

LOVE this jacket!
November 22, 2012

I wear this jacket everyday and its so so warm! The fabric on the inside really does make a difference and its worth every penny I paid!! I'm 5'6 113 pounds and I thought I'd need a xsmall but the jacket runs small and really fits to your body so I got a small.

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

A Nice Looking Jacket
January 26, 2010

The jacket has many nice features, and is of good quality. The jacket runs a bit small so order up in size.
