Best, most versatile jacket you can buy

How can this only have 3 reviews so far? It is AMAZING. This is coming from someone who has constant buyers remorse about everything. Not this. I have climbed 8 Colorado 14ers and countless other peaks with just this and my hiking base layer. I have gone biking, skiing, bouldering, to work and it still looks and feels perfect after a year of heavy abuse and laundering pretty much every week. It is light but very warm and when you are moving feels pretty much windproof. The pockets zip which is great, the collar is the perfect hight, and again, it's bombproof. My only complaint is a sort of dumb one, the neck now smells like a mix between sweat and suntan lotion, and it won't come out. But that's pretty much it. And if you've heard "fleece is dead" this jacket proves it isn't. But it's not really fleece, the outside is smooth and the inside is very flat as well, I doubt I'll ever have a problem with pilling on the inside. But the slick outer sheds water better than traditional fleece and will not get hung up on rocks and branches.

Great Jacket

I love this jacket more than I thought I would. I bought it to use when it was slightly colder than when I'd use my all purpose jacket but I feel like I grab this one first now anytime I'm just walking out the door. It's good for most weather, feels great to wear. I wish I had gotten a small instead of a medium now though. I don't have any real problems with this jacket other than the look of the pocket on the front. If it was a little less visible it would be fine but with the little tie around the zipper it sticks out more. I'd rather the pocket be on the inside of the jacket than visible on the outside of the chest. It's a great jacket though and I highly recommend it.

Best Light Jacket Ever

This is my third North Face jacket and is probably my favorite. The jacket is super light but yet just enough to wear to keep you warm enough during 40-60 degree weather. I live in Chicago and the temperature and weather is always changing. That's why this jacket is my go to jacket unless its raining or below 40 degrees. I also took this jacket on a three day backpacking trip to northern Michigan in November. I took it as my top layer to wear and the temps were in the 40's during the day and about 30 at night. Again kept me warm enough with my layers but yet light enough to carry as an additional layer if needed.

Sizing has changed

I bought a Momentum jacket about 5 years ago and just bought another one a month ago. The older one seems to have a better zipper - heavier and less likely to "run". The new jacket has a coil type zipper and I am skeptical that it will hold up as long, but time will tell.

In the old, I wear a medium. Nice snug fit. In the new, I bought a medium and it was way too large in the chest and neck. So, returned it and bought a small which fits like the old medium.

The materials and construction seem to be top-notch as you would expect from TNF.

Great multi-purpose layer!

I wear my North Face Momentum fleece jacket every single day, whether or not I'm hiking. It works great around the workplace to help moderate overly cool office spaces, but is still light and comfortable.

It's heavy enough to go for a brisk walk in temperatures down to about 50, but light and breathable enough that you can wear it in temps up to about 80 (at a normal pace).

It has an athletic fit, so it's more easily layered under jackets (even heavy ones) without any loss of mobility (or feelings of constriction).

This jacket really is a good, all-around, fleece jacket. I highly recommend it.

Durable and Affordable

For the price, this jacket was well worth the purchase. I have had this jacket for about 2 1/2 years and I am just now getting ready to replace it. The jacket's material is absolutely phenomenal and puts up with some pretty rough treatment. I've taken it on cycling trips and snowboarding trips as an underlayer and it survived fairly daily use as well. The only reason why I'm replacing it now is because the elbows finally wore to a point where holes are developing and the color is fading from so much time outside. Worth the price.
Maestro at The North Face on 10/12/2013

I love this jacket it in every way but calling it a fleece is a stretch. Maybe I am not in the know but I can't identify any "fleece" material in this jacket at all. That being said, I love the jacket, i love the way it fits and the way it looks. I find myself wearing it inside during work and while walking outside here in CT. The material is stretchy and somewhat fitted so it is better for people with an athletic build. Great present from my wife!!!

I got this as a Christmas gift for my dad & he loved it! Living in Colorado you never know what the weather will be, so this is perfect as a stand-alone or layering piece. The TNF Black looks nice enough to wear into work without looking sloppy & casual enough for a morning walk with the dog.
My dad's 6'2" & we ordered him an XL - as you can see from the cheesy Christmas day pictures (tags still on) it fits him perfectly. Would definitely recommend this jacket!

Jess at on 12/27/2012

i wore this all day today for the first time....i absolutely love it. its surprisingly comfy as hell. and really warm for what it is. seriously this might be the est piece of north face i have ever owned....this is great...glad i ordered an XL, im 5'8" 180 and it fits me just fine, maybe a little on the baggy side but its fine. sleeves are a little long but the band around the kuff keeps the sleeve from coming down to far. this is a great product!!!!!!

Alexander at on 02/21/2013

Please never stop making this jacket, North Face

This jacket is my absolute favorite. It has the ability to keep me at the right temperature in or outside. It's perfect for a brisk walk outside or when the office is too chilly. At the same time, it breathes just right so I'm not over heating. I have only one request, North Face. Please offer some more attractive colors. The bright blue and green are hideous. This leaves me ony with black and/or grey as a choice. All in all: fantastic jacket with awesome value.

Negative Reviews:

I knew I wasn't keeping this item the moment I opened the package. It is very thin - at best an expensive light weight sweatshirt. Good for a cool summer night on the beach - but, not for the colder temps of winter. Not a lot for your money here. There are better options with NF.

I couldn't find any use for this fleece, other than urban use.

Neutral Reviews:

I bought this jacket for my dad and he said it felt tight in the shoulder area . I knew if I bought him a size XL it would be too big everywhere else. Quite dissapointed.

juana at on 12/25/2012

Arms are definitely several inches longer than necessary. Take the pictures into consideration - If you have long arms, you'll be fine. Everyone else - be wary that the sleeves do run long
