The North Face Windwall 1 Jacket - The North Face Men's WindWall® 1 Jacket expands the boundary of traditional Gore WindStopper® jackets to offer greatly increased breathability, mobility, and comfort. WindWall® is a TNF proprietary fleece fabric that provides awesome wind protection, yet allows enough air permeability for aerobic activities. Unlike WindStopper®, which can uncomfortably trap moisture and excess heat, WindWall® keeps you dry, warm, and operating at your highest performance level. Perfect for outdoor activities as diverse as backcountry skiing, hiking, or just an evening stroll around town, the WindWall® 1 may well help you forget about traditional fleece and WindStopper® jackets altogether.


  • Tall collar, 28-inch length, and hem cinch cord further seal out the cold

Weather and Wind:

  • Wind permeability rating of 14 CFM keeps out the wind


  • Two zippered hand pockets hold skiing or daily accessories close at hand


  • bluesign® approved fabric
  • Turn fleece inside out to prevent pilling.  Machine wash separately in cold water on gentle cycle, using a mild detergent.  Do not iron, steam, press or dry clean.  Also avoid using bleach and fabric softener.
  • Polyester WindWall fabric features a wind permeability rating of 14CFM to block the wind and help reduce the wind chill
  • 75D 305 g/m2 100% Polyester WindWall 100 weight fleece
  • Hem cinchcord keeps out chilly air
  • Fleece backing adds warmth
  • Hem cinch-cord adjustment in pockets
  • WindWall polyster fleece bonded to mesh backing


  • Standard fit

Lining and Layers:

  • Mesh lining encourages breathability while hiking or backcountry skiing


  • Full-length front zipper permits venting when you heat up in the cold


  • Imported
FEATURES of The North Face Men's WindWall 1 Jacket.
SPECIFICATIONS of The North Face Men's WindWall 1 Jacket.
The whipping wind slices through normal fleece jackets like butter, but The North Face WindWall 1 Fleece Jacket acts as an armor against an advancing cold front while you ski, hike, or bike through the mountains. Wind-resistant WindWall fabric technology filters out the wind so you can keep cruising up the skin track or summit loop trail without teeth-chattering retreats from the backcountry. When the storm rolls in just slip on a stormproof shell and this fleece becomes a great mid layer for blocking the worst winter weather.


The North Face WindWall 1 Fleece Jacket for men adds windproofing to your waterproof ski shell to create a weatherproof combination. This jacket is also great to wear on its own in moderately cold conditions during the fall and spring. The WindWall fleece fabric insulates while it prevents wind from invading.
Zip up the WindWall® 1 Jacket to defend yourself against blustery weather or layer it under a shell when you really need to batten down the hatches.
WindWall® wind-resistant fleece utilizes a unique fabric-bonding process that greatly reduces external air permeability.
Stand collar for additional warmth and wind protection.
Full-zip front closure with internal wind flap.
Elastic cuffs keep the warmth in and the cold out.
Two on-seam zip pockets.
Adjustable drawcord hem.
Machine wash warm, tumble dry low.

Positive Reviews:

I bought this as a winter jacket for my 12 year old son. I bought the same jacket 2 years ago for my older son as his winter jacket because it would block the wind and was not too bulky. The 2011 version has a higher collar and a chest pocket. It was roomy enough that he continues to wear it daily for the third winter season and it still looks great. The 2013 version is still nice and has a very soft chin area with the jacket zipped up all the way up. My son reports that it has kept him toasty warm on his bike rides to school or out playing in the snow. I chose the Windwall 1 over the 2 that is now available because of price since he is still growing. The arm length is made longer than the version from '11 but they roll up without being too bulky. Overall, my son is completely satisfied with the warmth and I am happy with the durability.

I am impressed with the capabilities of this jacket. I was able to use it for skiing with no shell on top and with 2 base layers underneath, one light and stretchy (polypropylene and elastic) and a second one a bit thicker made out of wool. All this at a temperature as low as ~5F (-15C) with a wind speed of 15 mph (24Km/h). We caught a day with heavy snowing and strong winds at altitudes above 10000ft (roughly 3000m). As the wind speed increased I had to put a shell on top of the jacket in order to keep myself warm.
I have found the size to fit me well and the size advisor on to be very useful. For my height (6.3ft) and weight (195lbs) size L is a good fit.

I bought this jacket a few weeks ago to use as a layer underneath my shell while skiing and also as a mid-weight casual jacket and I think that it performs well for both. The fleece material is nice and soft and all zippers, pockets, and bungees function well. My only complaint is that the jacket seems a bit stiff. I think this might be due to the "windblocking" system they've put in which does work well. But I was a little surprised when I first picked it up and the inner membrane seems to crinkle.
Overall, a good quality and functional jacket which I will continue to enjoy wearing frequently!

I bought this jacket for my boyfriend to replace a cheaply made fleece jacket he picked up at Walmart. The difference is night and day! He was so happy to get this jacket. It looks great and feels great. He wanted something light to keep him warm. It's definitely made of thick sturdy fleece (?) but still light. There's not much stretch so it should keep shape. It fits him perfectly although it doesn't look as long on him as it is on the model. But it fits the same throughout.

I bought this for my teenage son, hoping that he would wear something other than just a hoodie. The weather has been very cold and he has been wearing it and loves it. It keeps him warm, some times he even says to warm. He also thinks the deep pockets are cool. I also ended up buying one for my husband who also thinks it's great. Now I am thinking of getting one for myself.

He loved it! I bought this for my 21 year old's birthday and he does not take it off. It looks dressy enough for a casual interview and perfect for the unpredictable Nebraska weather. He says it keeps the wind out but still breathes and is not too hot. It washed up beautifully. We ordered from Zappos when we could not find exactly what we wanted when shopping in Omaha. Our service was excellent!

bought this as a gift for my husband. He loves it. It is warm, and not bulky. The fleece is way better than cheaper brands. Just looks better, and does not attract too much hair and fuz. (my blonde hair is always attracted to his clothes and this drives him nuts! It is never on this coat, which he finds to be a miracle!)

Gave it to a client and they loved it. It doesn't appear like it'd handle the wind well; it does. It gets very hot very quickly, so long as it's used appropriately. It's a great jacket for general activities and fantastic for fall hiking or good weather winter day hikes or just casual use. Good jacket!

My husband wanted the 3 in 1 Wind Wall Jacket from North Face for our trip to Alaska. I ordered this jacket by mistake. However, when the jacket came in, he decided to keep it because it had the wind blocking ability his other fleeces did not have. He loves it! Thank you Zappos.

Spring/Fall Jacket

This is the only jacket I found made by North Face that would fit me in small. The fit is not big like other models. It's a light jacket suitable for spring/fall weather. Moderate warmth and not rain proof. Not a bad jacket.

Neutral Reviews:

I bought a Windwall in 2011, and accidently spilled bleach on it so I bought a new Windwall this year and was sincerely disappointed at how the quality has gone down. Don't get me wrong, it keeps me warmer than most other jackets and performs well on chilly evenings, but the quality of the jacket feels a little cheaper. The fleece is a little thinner and after being washed once it looks like I owned it for years, where as the older windwalls looked good after every wash. I'm still in search of the 2011 Windwalls.

"Not exactly my cup of tea".

I have returned this jacket as I am not satitisfied with it. I was expecting a flexable fleece and this is more like a jacket one could purchase anywhere. The logo on the back shoulder is overkill and it adds nothing positive to the jacket.
