Ordered my jacket on a Friday afternoon and got it on Monday! The jacket feels a bit larger (I ordered a small) than than others I've tried on, but I'm very pleased with my purchase.

Love It!
February 10, 2007

It is very practical. Lightweight but still very warm. Its looks are very deceiving because it is so thin but keeps me so warm. It is very fitting, and looks great with everything. This is my first Northface, and now I truly understand why EVERYONE at college has one!

excellant windstopper for winter winds
March 05, 2006

Living in the Great Lakes area we are exposed to cold, harsh winds during the winter months. This jacket provides the protection needed to be able to enjoy the outdoors during the winter!

Great Jacket!
November 24, 2006

Bought this for a trip around New Zealand. Has been wonderful. Not really as warm as I would have thought - but I am quite cold natured. Bought a size too big -I wanted to layer under it but this is a bit bulky. I bought a Medium and I normally wear a size 6-8 blouse.

delivered very quickly and is exactly what I wanted!

First time visiting this website - order was filled very quickly, with free shipping! Will definitely order from you again!

Windwall 1 or 2
December 28, 2005

I have the mens version of the North Face Windwall 1 and Windwall 2 Jackets. They are both excellent. I like the Windwall 1 because it uses a small tooth zipper and the sleeve length is correct for the size in my case a "Large". It is a fraction lighter and a little more compact than the Windwall 2. However I think the pocket location is a little too high (a common trend with some vendors) and becomes uncomfortable in the arms if you are warming your hands for long periods. Still that would not stop me buying this jacket. The Windwall 2 is also very good. The pocket location is much better (normal and comfortable) and it has an extra external zippered breast pocket for storage. However the sizings are on the large side (I have a "Medium" and it is bigger than the "Large" on the Windwall 1). The sleeve length is excessive and is at least two and a half inches too long for the size, I fold them back and that works for me but is not ideal. The zipper is large teeth whereas I prefer small teeth (lighter easier to fold). The material on these jackets is really soft, not too thick or bulky and wind does not penetrate the material at all. Either jacket is a great wind protector and fleece all in one, you can't go wrong. Altrec sent the right item and size and it was delivered quickly.

Great jacket!
January 19, 2008

I love this jacket! It is definitely one of my favoritie North Face pieces. Great quality and material.

very nice
November 05, 2007

I bought this jacket for my daughter. i have a denali and the wind blows right through it so you do need a shell when it's windy out. This jacket is still warm when it's windy and it looks great. My daughter loves it!!!!

October 11, 2007

This is a great jacket, the fit is really flattering and it's not too short like some other jackets

college and running
January 03, 2006

I got this for my 19yo daughter for college. North face is the label now. she needed it for running and loved the color and weight.

April 18, 2005

Perfect, bought for my wife. Perfect size, great price. Thanks

nice gift
October 02, 2006

Great jacket that looks great!

The search is over!
March 05, 2007

I bought this jacket as a mid-layer for skiing in Canada and it performed better than expected! I wore this jacket under a waterproof shell and it did a great job of blocking the wind - 10 degrees F with wind and snow and my upper body stayed quite warm! It also functions great as a fleece jacket in dry weather for temps above 40 or so. I am a size small/medium, and the medium allows me to wear several thermal layers and/or a fitted sweater underneath quite comfortably. If you want to wear it over a bulky sweatshirt or sweater you would want to size up. I have been waiting for a jacket of this color (love the dynasty blue - it's a cute periwinkle) and quality to appear. It was worth the wait!

Great! Runs big.
December 01, 2007

Very warm - almost too warm for many days in San Diego. Great for casual biking to school - it really is wind-resistant on those breezy downhills. Runs a bit large - I usually wear small, but that was too big in the sleeves and chest, so I got XS, which fits much better. I love the dynasty blue color (light periwinkle). Much warmer than my old generic fleece of the same thickness.

Great Jacket Overall
November 06, 2007

Attractive Jacket that looks good on everyone. Warm, light weight, well constructed; only problem is that jacket pills over time or if not washed very carefully; however, this would not stop me from purchasing another if TNF could use pill-free material next time. For the price of this jacket the material should be pill free.

meets my needs perfectly
April 13, 2005

great all year round jacket for our new england climate, from camping to skiing.

great jacket
November 01, 2007

This jacket measures up and beyond promises. It fits well, keeps winds at bay, has good styling....and the color is beautiful. I have 3 styles in Dynasty Blue and looking for more.

Nice looking jacket for my high-school daughter.
January 02, 2008

This jacket is the "in" jacket for many girls in the high school marching band. They practice three hours a day, five days a week (competitive band), and their season runs until the end of November. My daughter asked me to get this because it apparently cuts down the wind to almost nothing, yet is also wearable, and, most important, an attractive fit.

love it!
May 10, 2004

This jacket is great. It's a fitted wind resistant jacket that I really get a lot of use out of. Very reasonable price too!

Great jacket in Men's and Women's
September 24, 2006

My husband and I both have Windwall jackets and they're great. Warm yet lightweight. Altec was super too with the best prices by far!

Great lightweight jacket!
September 25, 2006

I love the color (Mars green) and it's perfect for blocking out the San Francisco breeze. The fleece is soft, and the inside lining does a great job with insulating from the wind. I feel as though the size runs a bit big (I'm a size Small with all TNF products, and a small in the this jacket is just a big baggy, especially from the back). I guess that leaves room to wear a bulkier inside layer (ie. sweater).

Great Color!
September 30, 2006

I love the jacket. It fits well it's perfect for those chilly mornings and In the afternoon's I can stuff it in my backpack. I have had more compliments on the color. I believe it was called Berry. It's a lavender-purple color. Two of my co-workers liked it so much they went online and bought their own jackets.

I Love North Face
August 27, 2007

I love my north face, its a light weight jacket that keeps me warm. I just love it!!!!!

Great jacket, Stylish too
April 11, 2005

This is a great jacket for spring or fall.

i love it
June 12, 2005

i love this jacket so much... i am addicted to north face - and i love this jacket the most out of denali, and i have another wind breaker type (nylon) north face. highly reccommended

great jacket, warm, lightweight, and nice color!
April 16, 2006

i really like my new windwall jacket. it is lightweight and warm, and blocks the wind. it was just what i was looking for! the fit is nice and roomy and the sleeves are even long enough!!

Great jacket!
October 02, 2006

Perfect fit and color. Can't wait to try it out while sailing!

This jacket is AWESOME!!!!!!
November 30, 2007

The moment I took this jacket out of the package, I knew I had made a great purchase! Very stylish, and comfortable. I have had so many compliments on this jacket...I want one in every color! Thanks for making such a great product, lets not forget to mention at a great price as well!

June 09, 2006

Over all this jacket is great. Durable, blocks wind. Worth the money

This is great!!
May 27, 2008

I bought this because I live in the Windy City of Chicago and my Denali does not block the wind enough. I was a little skeptical when I first opened this package because it was such a small lightweight jacket, but looks are deceiving! It really is so much better at blocking the wind then the Denali. I am 5'2 and 125 pounds and bought a small. At first when I tried it on I was worried that it was a little too tight but now I am glad that I bought a small because it is something that I would wear in the spring/fall over a t-shirt or lightweight shirt, instead of a bulky sweater/sweatshirt. Then when it is cooler out this will be excellent for layering with my Denali or the Nupste jacket. I am very happy with this purchase!!

December 13, 2007

I already this jacket and i love it so much i bought it in another color!

very cool
January 06, 2008

great delivery, the jacket is great. My daughter loves it and I do too.

Great jacket, great service
May 15, 2006

I just got my Windwall jacket and I love it! It's just what I was looking for, exactly what your website said it would be and it arrived at my door very fast...all the way from the other side of the country! Thank you for your great service! I will definitely be shopping here again!

Outstanding jacket
June 05, 2006

I purchased this jacket for my wife after owning the men's version myself. The jacket material is comfortable, and the style is very functional as well as attractive. It is an excellent jacket that gets worn often. This jacket is very light and warm. It does block wind to a degree that you would expect in a lightweight jacket of this type. We have purchased several TNF products because of their quality construction and design, and will continue to do so.

i want one in every color!!
October 20, 2006

i love this jacket. its my first north face fleece and i am extremely happy with it. i got a size bigger than i normally am because i plan on wearing it as a layer over sweaters and sweatshirts but it is still comfy with just a tshirt under. its everything i expected and more! and the shipping WOW! i ordered it on a monday NIGHT and it came thursday!! and the shipping was FREE!! incredible! definitely ordering from here again.. thank you!

had it for years and its still kickin'
November 20, 2006

I bought this jacket several years ago and despite the wash I give it about once a week, its still one of my favorites. It doesn't ball up and get fuzzy as much as other fleeces I've owned in the past and it keeps me really warm. I great piece of outerwear in the fall and perfect as a layer when I go up to the mountain.

very impressed with my windwall jacket
April 05, 2006

I absoultly love my North Face WindWall Jacket. I should have ordered (2) so my daughter would leave mine alone!

great for changing weather!
April 27, 2008

I ordered this fleece jacket for my trip to Chicago in May because I heard it was still chilly out there during this time. When I got it, I wore it right away that night since it was windy (weather also changes like that here in Texas). The jacket really stood up for its name "windwall" because it did its job blocking the wind & keeping me warm, even if I just had a shirt under. I also really like the color (I got the brownie) & it fits me right how I want it. I am now convinced I can bring this jacket in any of my future trips, and it makes me wanna buy another one in a different color=).

Luvin it
October 20, 2007

I love this jacket and wear it all of the time. It's very flattering and warm for as thin as it is. Now I only wish I had one with a hood! Next time..

Great Jacket for Spring!
March 27, 2005

I just purchased this jacket and havent't really gotten a chance to wear it yet because it has been too cold but so far it has been very comfortable and a perfect fit. Thanks

Great Light jacket
February 24, 2006

This fleece is very light and soft. It is great for mild cold weather and it is easy to carry. I use mine when I do running or biking sometimes because the hinchcords adjust it well to my waist and my cuffs. It is not compatible with the North Face shells however, but can be easily worn underneath one for added comfort.
