I got one of these 5 years ago and really liked the first one I had. I got two more this year are a really different cut and I don't like them nearly as much; especially don't like the flare they have at the bottom, the loose fit, and just don't fit as well.
"Must have for any backcountry travel - lightweight, dries quick, good for chilly mornings/evenings"
I am writing this review as a WFR on a SAR team out of New Mexico. Up in NM's higher elevations the evenings/mornings are downright chilly and this is the go to pullover of choice to get the mornings rocking or sitting around the campfire chillin. I love this particular product so much I own five different colors (Orange Twist, Weimaraner Brown, Conifer Green, Mojito Green, and Famenco Blue). Offers the warmth I need for being as lightweight as it is, is a very breathable material and dries quick. The material is study after several seasons and colors hold up well. Of course the Mojito Green is PERFECT for drinking Guiness on St. Paddy's Day!
How can I describe the ultra softness of these tops? I just bought three of them from Moosejaw. Two were for me who needed warmth but not weight and one for my son (it's his third TKA 100 since last year) because he just loves wearing them. I've had other tops from North Face and can attest they are extremely durable, keep their color and shape through many washings. I just bought the beautiful Linaria Pink which I can wear now and into spring as well as the Plush Purple another gorgeous transitional color. My son's top is the beautiful Nautical blue.
"Great light weight fleece; soft, looks great, and keeps you warm"
This is the second North Face TKA 100 Microvelour Glacier 1/4 Zip I have purchased this Winter. This one was for my daughter based on her loving mine. This jacket is true to size, soft to the touch, and surprisingly warm for it weight. The fabric holds up well to washing and does not collect hair or lent. Even in temperatures down to 30 degrees F, this jacket keeps you warm and keeps the wind out. It also is a great lounging around on the couch shirt not causing you to overheat inside. We will be buying more of these in the future.
I love this. its insanely soft and warm and I wear it on casual Fridays at work. God help you though if you get dryer lint on it like I did on mine, it was all over it and it took forever to get it off. But it was worth it to wear it again. It's also great over a button down shirt and pearls to class it up a bit when needed. A winter staple.
