Sometimes you find those pieces that just fit and are so flattering that you have to grab another one. In this case, I got the black heather Kirata hoodie and purchased another of the same color, because the layering I will do with it won't work with the other colors. I plan to wear it a lot and also want a back up in case TNF doesn't keep this style going in the coming seasons. I am 5'5", 135 lbs and keep in fairly good shape, but have plenty of softy moments and when this came, I tried it on while and it was so flattering, fitted, and stretched enough, but also gave great support. The length is awesome - no more exposed mid-drifts, and it looks absolutely fabulous layered beneath other pieces. It's a rocking hoodie that I hope to get lots of mileage out of. I purchased the Kirata in the black heather. I am 5'5" and 135-140 lbs. I stay in relatively good shape but have my softy times. I purchased a small so that it would fit snug and layer well, and hoped the stretch 'denim' would have give, but not too much. This was perfect...the fabric gives an almost 'support' feel. The longer torso is wonderful, so my mid-drift is not exposed when I sit or bend over. The sleeves are long for the thumbs, but when i keep the sleeves up to layer underneath another jacket, it 'bunches up' nicely without being bulky and showing through my outer layer. I just bought another of the same just in case I wear this one out, as I plan to wear it a lot. Could buy from any site, but love Zappos. The fast shipping, free returns and fabulous customer service is unprecedented. It's spoiled me and I will always look for items here that I see elsewhere for the option to buy from this fabulous company!

I already have a pair of North Face pants in a different style, so I ordered the same size in these--however, this pair was way too small. I would need to go up another size, if not two. I didn't bother ordering a bigger size though, because I wasn't crazy about the style. I know it's supposed to have a relaxed fit, but the lower legs were very wide and boxy looking on me. Also, I prefer my hiking/outdoors pants to have a little stretch or give to the fabric and these didn't.

from Houston, TX
This has become my favorite jacket of all time. This is great for the unpredictable weather of Southeast Texas and I can't wait to try it out in Europe next month. It's very form fitting and does keep you warm and cool in different temperatures. I do believe that I will need a light sweater underneath for very cold days.
About the North Face
In 1966, two hiking enthusiasts founded a small mountaineering retail store in the heart of San Francisco's North Beach. The company soon became known as The North Face, a retailer of high-performance climbing and backpacking equipment. (The name was selected because in the Northern Hemisphere, the north face of a mountain is generally the coldest, iciest and most formidable to climb.) In 1968, The North Face began designing and manufacturing its own brand of high-performance mountaineering apparel and equipment, and in the early 1980s, extreme skiwear was added to the product offering. By the end of the decade, The North Face became the only supplier in the United States to offer a comprehensive collection of high-performance outerwear, skiwear, sleeping bags, packs and tents.
Using all types of proprietary technology, TNF provides The North Face jackets, The North Face clothes, The North Face pants, The North Face bags and The North Face shoes with quality, durability, and above all else, functionality. Throughout the years, The North Face jacket and outerwear division has set the standard in the industry. With styles such as The North Face Denali jacket and vest, The North Face Apex Bionic jackets, and The North Face Nupste jackets, The North Face jackets proves time and time again that they are at the forefront of high-performance apparel.
