Super cozy

    So soft and cozy. Exactly what I was looking for. Like the offset zipper and the thumb holes.

    Beautiful jacket!

    This fleece is beautiful and a cut above, I love the style and the doeskin brown is absolutely beautiful. I have not noticed any shedding as reported in another review. I have only worn it briefly since it's a bit warm in TX for a fleece. Backcountry had and awesome sale so this was a steal and I love it!

    Love, Love, Love, Get One!!

    I love how soft these fleeces are! I have 3 regular Osito fleeces and this one is way way way better!! Deep zipper pockets (that they all have which is great, I'm always losing stuff out of my pockets) It's longer (almost covers my butt), it has thumbholes 👍(which is a major plus) and the way it zippers makes it look more flattering and gives it an extra style edge! Super soft and very warm. It washes good to. No pilling or ruining of the fleece. You can throw it in the washer and dryer with no worries at all. It won't shrink and comes out of the dryer looking brand new again!! I got doeskin brown and love the color it's like a shiny tan. I loved it so much l ordered a grey one to. For the price, well worth it. I got them on sale so l got 2 for the price of 1 AND 2 day free shipping!! If you love Northface Osito original fleece jackets you'll absolutely love this one!! It also fits true to size! This fleece is a must!! And honestly l would've paid full price for it. Most Definitely worth it!!

    Warning: this coat SHEDS

      First of all, I would like to start off with the disclaimer that I have a lot of North Face clothing, including North Face fleeces. So I thought that this coat was a no-brainer: I liked the style and color, and wanted something that was soft and fluffy. I regretted this almost immediately. As is my wont, I washed it (#1) before wearing it. Upon my first wearing, the coat shed copious amounts of fleece fluff everywhere: my gym bag (which looked like it had grown fuzzy grey mold), car (the seatbelts were absolutely coated), my clothes, everywhere. So I washed it (#2) along with my towels and bedding: big mistake. Now I had fleece fluff on my towels (I wound up with fleece stuck to my skin every time I dried off with the fluff-contaminated towels). So I washed it, without even wearing it, alone (#3), and thought I was safe. WRONG. Once again, it shed fleece like an Alaskan Husky shedding its winter coat. So, feeling that I must have reached a turning point (a feeling that turned out to be hugely unjustified), I washed it again (#4: bear in mind I've had this coat for 8 days at this point) with other clothes, and I think that I don't have to tell you what happened, except to say that I've gone through 2 lint rollers as well (it took me 15 min to roll the lint off a black cotton T shirt, after washing it again did not remove the fleece fluff). Since I don't want to 1) unnecessarily increase my carbon footprint by continuously washing it until it stops shedding, and 2) inflict this coat on someone else (donating this coat would only pass this headache to someone else), I regretfully will be throwing this away. Because unfortunately, burning it in the fires of Mordor is not an option.

      The Osito parka is great for both comfort and style. I love the soft feel of the high pile, silken fleece and the sweaters baggy but flattering fit. I find it always keeps me warm whether im on the couch or out running errands. I've used this sweater as a base layer on many occasions and enjoy the asymmetrical zipper which helps with temperature control. I am a huge fan of the oversized collar, as well as the on seam thumb holes. This adds to the overall coziness of the sweater, and makes it ideal for layering. This product has exceeded my expectations given the set use on the product page. I find it a very versatile layer and a great addition to the wardrobe. When I received the product I was very happy with the overall appearance and fit. I found the product information on the website had been very accurate and I was happy there were no unexpected surprises. I am also very happy with the durability of this product and have had no issues during use or machine washing. I would recommend this product to anyone who is interested and love that it can be used for causal or active wear!

      Women's Osito Parker w/thumb holes

      • Size Bought: Small

      So excited to try this online shopping for North Face on Backcountry site. I love all my NF that already is in my closet & I mean I have a lot! This jacket runs a tad bigger in width & length (which I like) than my other jackets & pullovers. I am a HUGE fan of thumb holes, however I am deeply disappointed that the thumb holes aren't placed in the correct position and I can't wear them because it's too short and it pulls too tight . Not sure what model they used for this product but it is all wrong. My daughter who wears the same size as me said the same thing:( I would not buy another one of these jackets for the price! The thumb holes are what got me and the Thing mbholes are what will make me not purchase another until they fix the issue !! :(
