The North Face Men's Denali Down Jacket is a new addition to the Denali family. I'm sure you've heard of the Denali family, up there with the Rockefellers and the Kennedys in terms of US historical importance, they've helped shape this country. What would our ski slopes or city streets look like without the Denalis? I don't even want to think about it. The Denali Down jacket hits the scene with 550-fill down insulation baffled across the abrasion-reinforced chest and shoulders and a DWR finish on the body and sleeves for warmth and weather protection. With the increased climate range afforded by this mid-layer, the Denali family has just cemented its legacy for years to come.
The North Face Men's Denali Down Fleece Jacket sees you through cold hikes and even colder ski sessions with toasty warmth. Recycled Polartec 300 Series makes up this heavyweight fleece to keep you toasty on frigid nights, and a DWR coating helps you stay dry during light snow showers. Durable nylon panels cover 550-fill down insulation around your chest and shoulders to warm your core on the chairlifts when you wear this fleece as a mid-layer.
The Denali Down features elasticized cuffs to keep the jacket in place when you throw a waterproof shell over it. The North Face added a media pocket so you can jam out to your favorite tunes from fall's cold trails to winter's ski sessions. And you can zip in compatible shells by The North Face for completely sealed protection on the slopes this winter.
The classic Denali jacket crafted in 300 Series recycled fleece gets a boost of thermal warmth for winter.
Abrasion-reinforced nylon adds durability to the baffled 550-fill down insulation mapped across the chest and shoulders. The body and sleeves have a DWR (durable water repellent) finish to shed light rain and snow and improve overall drying time. A new media pocket secures your MP3 player and streamlines your headphone wires so you can remain handsfree when you’re on-the-go.
The classic The North Face fleece fortified with thermally mapped 550 fill down for added winter warmth.

It has finally gotten cold enough to test this out, and I am thrilled with it. We got a terrible storm yesterday in which the temps dropped 40 degrees through the front moving through. I started the day in my rain gear, and was carrying this. By the end of the day I had this zipped into the shell and was nice and toasty. Lets some wind in without the shell over it, but that's the nature of fleece and was/is to be expected. With the shell over it, it turns the shell into a winter coat, and is great. I would highly recommend this, so long as you keep your expectations realistic.
Just a side note. I washed this per the instructions on a gentle- all of the insulation came out. IF you should wash this, I would suggest by hand only. This was returned without any trouble and has been exchanged for a Thermoball.... review of that to follow.
