The North Face Denali Jacket
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $80
The iconic jacket in travel size. I bought this for my 2-year-old, and I have not regretted it.
- Just like the big one
I bought the size 3 for my 2-year-old boy, hoping it would last a while. It has not let me down. He is 4 and it's now getting small on him but has remained in perfect condition. Non-piling fleece, warm, durable, washable. Fashionable, still insulates when wet.
I won't get into the "North Face is too commercialized" discussion. No, this is the only TNF I have. OK, my 2YO daughter has one I guess. They do a good job. Sometimes I want to stop trying to be different then everybody else. TNF does a really good job at making jackets and gear that are at once stylish, functional, quality, and durable. This is definitely no exception.
I have taken it on windy, cold, and rainy trips and he's always ok. He spills grape juice on it, falls in the mud, and it always cleans up nice. I chose this over a Patagonia down poofy, for the cleansability. It doesnt matter when you're not 3 years old, but this guy has gotten worse things than grape juice on this jacket. Yay, North Face.

Your young fashion maverick and his best buddy have a bet going as to who can wear shorts longer into the winter; stuff like this drives you crazy, but thankfully he'll let you bundle up the rest of him in The North Face Youth Denali Fleece Jacket. Even if his legs are covered in goosebumps, the Denali's expedition-weight fleece and wind-blocking nylon inserts keep his upper body cozy as he waits at the bus stop, and the jacket's DWR finish repels light precipitation. When temperatures start to stay below freezing and he finally agrees to wear long pants (after winning the bet, of course), your kid can zip the Denali into his The North Face shell to create the ultimate insulated winter jacket.
