User Review: The North Face Men's Denali Jacket
Fabric: Polyester with nylon abrasion patches
Price Paid: $160
Now an old standby, the Denali Jacket by TNF remains the yardstick by which fleece jackets are measured. It has evolved slightly from its early days, and not entirely for the better, but it remains a top-notch outdoor utility fleece jacket.
My only complaint is its success. After it reached icon status, it became almost as much a fashion accessory amongst the polished-chrome-wheels-on-the-Tahoe crowd as anything else. My only other suggestion to TNF would be to revisit the sizing, as I think it tends to run a bit too large for the labeled size.
I've got two of these, and should I in the future need something similar, it's what I'd look for first again.
