Escape To The Wild.

Whether you're belaying on a crisp fall morning or starting your day hike before the sun has had a chance to burn off the dew, pull on The North Face Men's Borod Fleece Jacket and enjoy a day in the wild. The stretchy grid fleece construction traps body heat while remaining breathable to help keep you comfortable when you're on the move. A full-zip design allows for quick wardrobe changes when the day finally heats up, and the active fit provides easy layering and looks pretty good when you swing into town to grab a slice of pie at your favorite cafe.

  • A midweight fleece for technical adventures
  • Stretch grid fleece provides warmth, mobility, and breathability
  • Elastic bound cuffs keep sleeves in place
  • Zippered pockets keep essentials secure

Perfect for layering

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Size Bought: L

I recently ordered this after my apex chromium purchase. The Borod is a nice material but much thinner than expected. It does work well in the office because of the constant AC but I don’t think I could depend on it as a fleece jacket. It’s more of a fleece shirt. If you hold it up to a light you can see right through the material patterns. Quality item just can’t consider it fleece or jacket in my opinion. I do look forward to having it for layering with the apex chromium jacket though. This is a slim fit so I’d recommend one size up to get the feel of your actual size if you prefer a regular fit. Glad I got it on sale with the winter discount but wouldn’t pay full retail price for this if I wanted a fleece jacket. Fleece shirt with a zipper is closer to description.


  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

So first off the price is a little steep for what you get. It is a thin shell. Good for a spring day etc. I wouldn't rely on it below 45 degrees outside. I will say backcountry gave me 20% off the jacket when purchased as a new customer, so that worked out well on the steep price tag. It's a really nice product and I dont see any flaws, so I'm not too sure what everyone else is complaining about. Stop whining ya babies.

Decent thin soft-shell

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

This is a decent soft-shell option (light, packable, comfortable) but I don't love it. I find it fits well but I like slim cut items so if you want a loose fitting item this might not work for you. The main zipper snags EVERY time. I end up having to use two hands to undo this jacket (not ideal for climbing). I should have returned it but never got around to it so I will live with it or simply cut out the inner flap where it snags. I would recommend another option.

Thank you for the feedback Winston!

Sizes listed are not correct

  • Fit: Runs small

The sizing chart should clearly state that this is a SLIM FIT "LARGE". In other words if you expect a Large you won't get it.

Second purchase

    Ended up purchasing another one, he loves it that much!


    • Fit: True to size

    jacket was damaged, looks like in the front of the jack looks like it was cut

    How to Measure:
    For best results, take measurements over your underwear.
    Measure under your arms, around the fullest part of your chest.
    Measure around your natural waistline, keeping the tape a bit loose.
    Measure the hip circumference at the fullest part of the seat, keeping the tape horizontal around the body.
    Using pants that fit well, measure the crotch seam to the bottom of the leg.
    Sleeve Length:
    Measure the distance from the prominent bone at center back neck, across the shoulder, over the bent elbow to the center of the wrist bone.
