From the manufacturer
The outdoor world needed a game changer
In 1981 Polartec forever changed the way the world dresses for cold weather with the invention of polar synthetic fleece. After 30 years our fleece remains the cornerstone of thermal insulating materials.
Versatile lightweight weather resistant insulation
The primary insulation layer among experienced outdoor enthusiasts, Polartec fabrics are designed specifically to enhance performance in a variety of environments.
Breathability and warmth regulation
Polartec fabrics are highly breathable and regulate warmth, while lofted fibres reduce their weight.
Moisture is continuously pulled from your skin and diffused to the outside, where the exterior layer then spreads the moisture out to a wider surface area for faster evaporation.
- Fast drying
- Pill resistant
- Warmth regulator

I'd describe it as medium thickness and it fits well. I'm a large on most things and indeed the large size of this fleece fits me fine. It's nice and soft too.
It's a joy to wash because it dries very quickly, which would make ideal to take on holiday. I think it's certainly worth paying a little more for the North Face brand. My existing North Face fleece is still going strong whereas other, cheaper fleeces have fallen by the wayside after a few years' use. I also have some North Face T-shirts and they are similarly durable.
I believe the days of 3 in 1 jackets are gone, replaced by company's wanting you to purchase multiple jackets with differing capabilities. If we were to go somewhere colder he would need a heavier fleece to wear with the shell, this one is just not warm enough.
Summary: this is a brilliant lightweight fleece that is lovely & soft and warm enough for a light fleece. If you are looking for a thick warm fleece, this model is not it.
I was dubious about the authenticity of the product so I visited my local north face store. Having examined the stitching and the fleece material of the same tops, I've come to the conclusion this is not the genuine item. For one thing the fleece is coarser and heavier than the same tops in the store.
Although this is a reasonably warm and nice fleece, I honestly think it's not the genuine North Face brand. If you pay another £15 you can buy the genuine item from the store.
I have been wearing it today in work and was happy until the zip broke, it was tough to zip up originally but I thought maybe it was because it was new, after zipping all the way up I can now only zip it a quarter of the way down and the section below the zip has now come apart. Will take a proper look when I get home but disappointed.
