I don't think it is the epitome of style, but it is fairly practical. A billion years ago I had an LL Bean fleece. It was really warm, but to be honest, that stuff doesn't even remotely fit my style. Working out or not.

Thank you for this. I was given an insulated coat with hood. Twenty-degree weather today with strong winds in my face tells me to look for something to protect my cheeks, and I could use something inexpensive, since I won't necessarily have many opportunities to use what I manage to find.

I just bought a NorthFace 700 fill jacket. I like the fit and it is very light. I also appreciate the lifetime warranty. We have a North Face store in the mall.

Love TNF, fits well, comfortable and if it's an insulated coat it will keep you warm.

I agree that other, cheaper brands like Columbia do the trick just as well too.

I purchased North Face ski pants and they are great quality, I had them on for a few hours last week while clearing snow with the guys when it was brutal here in Buffalo with the wind, kept my legs toasty. I'm ready to purchase a jacket and gloves, they are one of a few brands that still are producing good products while being popular.

I like North Face jackets and even saw one the other day - one of the furry ones, really soft, but it cost too much. They don't seem to ever go on sale. I do agree with BATCAT about the logo thing - I hate clothes with logos because I don't want to be a walking advertisement for their clothes, especially paying my own money to buy a jacket with a product ad.

If you want to fit in here in Boston, just buy a black North Face jacket, throw on some black leggings with brown Ugg boots and get yourself a Coach purse

Regardless, I have a Cabela's parka that I love and was half the price of anything sold by North Face. It stood up extremely well in the polar vortex we just had, and I had zero issues walking to the train station when the wind chill was -17.

I've also noticed how popular it is, but don't get the appeal and don't know anybody who wears it. I've noticed too that when one person in a group is wearing it, more often than not they all are. I don't get the appeal, but then there are things I like that I'm sure others don't get the appeal of either.

Used to be usable mountain gear. I still have TNF Portaledge. Seems still sort of ok but nothing special anymore.

I never understood why everyone wore that exact same black North Face fleece jacket, I think it's called "denali"? But I got one of the soft plush jackets when I found it for %50 off and that thing is warmer than most of my coats! Now I've got a North Face hoodie too, and it's much warmer than any other hoodie I've ever had. I'm always cold so I'm pretty particular about jackets and coats.

I like Patagonia and the others too, but the store near my house puts a ton of North Face on clearance every year, so I usually end up with TNF.
