The North Face Fleeces
The Winter months in Australia are surprisingly chilly. Well, when compared to countries in the northern hemisphere like Japan and Canada, maybe winters here don’t seem so cold. But that definitely doesn’t mean you shouldn’t rug up when heading outside. That’s where fleeces come into the equation.
The North Face are known for their cosy fleeces, amongst other things like durable jackets, highly-functional backpacks and stylish yet functional down/puffer jackets. That’s why when the colder weather starts to set in, we recommend going with a North Face fleece to keep you nice and warm. Depending on the temperature, you may need an extra layer, but you’ll be surprised just how warm a North Face fleece will keep your body. This now globally-renowned brand released its first fleece jacket all the way back in 1988, and named it the ‘Denali’ (which makes sense since it was tested on the actual Denali mountain). The practical and superb quality jacket quickly gained popularity among both hardcore hikers and casual explorers as well as everyone in between.
A plethora of fleeces are available by the brand, from the iconic Denali fleece to Dunraven Sherpas and Canyonlands North Face Fleeces. If you aren’t familiar with these specific styles, those names might sound like a load of gibberish to you. A simple Google search will let you discover the wide range of fleece jackets that The North Face have to offer - including Mens, Womens, Kids and even babies! A baby North Face fleece? Too adorable. In terms of performance, this really depends on the style you choose. You can find lighter jackets as well as heavier, more heat-retaining varieties. Which one you choose may also depend on where in Australia you live. Victoria? Tassie? You may be better off with a thicker style. WA? Queensland? Then the thinner fleeces could be a better choice. Although international travel is still up in the air for 2021, you may need to pack a trusty fleece for an overseas trip!
When it comes to clothing, functionality, comfort and warmth aren’t the only factors that The North Face considers. Despite being an outdoor-wear brand, TNF have become a top-of-mind fashion brand to many, thanks to just how stylish and aesthetically appealing their clothing is. You’ll regularly see celebrities (not just athletes) rocking a fleece along with other pieces like The North Face hoodies . You can find fleeces in a variety of colours, fits (from standard to relaxed, tapered and more), and styles (quarter-zip fleeces, full zips, pull-overs etc). And of course, every fleece jacket by TNF features the instantly recognisable logo!
Fun fact: the logo actually pays homage to the granite “Half Dome” located in the Yosemite National Park.
Remember the short history lesson above about the Denali fleece? That fleece jacket in particular has risen to the pinnacle of vintage fashion, becoming a hot commodity among resellers of 80s and 90s clothing. The demand for North Face fleeces seems to always be high every year in Australia, especially during the middle of the year. To be honest, we’re not surprised! Not only are TNF Fleeces appropriate for winter, but they are certainly a head-turner without being too flashy. They’re effortlessly fashionable and super versatile! Going out for lunch at 12 and going hiking at 3? Not a problem - change from regular shorts to sports shorts and you’re set! The fleece can stay on in a variety of occasions without looking ‘unfashionable’ or ‘daggy’. That’s the beauty of The North Face.
