Way back in 1989, The North Face launched their Denali Jacket. The fuzzy, Polartec Fleece quickly became one of the most iconic jackets that the outdoor industry has ever seen. Inspired by Mt. Denali, the highest point in North America, these fleece coats are made to be truly versatile between both Urban and Wilderness environments. The original Denali features 300 weight Polartec Fleece, a sweet Napoleon pocket to store your phone or other stuff. There are also wear patches on the shoulders and elbows to resist abrasion. One of the best features is that the jacket in zip-in compatible with some of The North Face outer shells. This means that you can attach the Denali to a waterproof shell to stay both warm and dry in harsh conditions.
Although everything really started with the original jacket, The North Face Denali has since transformed into an entire line of products, all made with Polartec Fleece for that soft and fuzzy feel that we all love. To build on the original Denali, there are more fleece jackets in the line that offer increased wind protection, better warmth with thicker fleece, and even a jacket filled with down.
The Denali line isn't all about their popular coat though. You can get that great fleece feel from other products in the line too. There's a sweet vest for those early fall and late spring days. There are The North Face Denali hats and beanies to keep your head comfortable all winter long. There are also bunch of fleece gloves to keep those hands toasty, including touch-screen phone compatible gloves. I think that might be about everything… Wait, nope. I totally forgot about the scarves and neck gaiters. Trust me, there's north like the feel of soft and war fleece around your neck on those brutal winter days.
If you don't believe me, just look around, grab the first person you see, and ask them how much they love their The North Face Denali Jacket. If that doesn't work, move on to the next person. Seriously though, I'm not sure how many of these coats have been sold over the years, but it seems like almost everyone has one. You can see Denali outerwear on everyone from Infants to your grandparents. And the best part is that they all look great wearing them. However, I don't think there's any place on earth where The North Face Denali is more popular than on a college campus. So, if you're looking to impress that super cute guy or girl in your French class, any Denali product will for sure give you an edge over all competition.
