For 2009, they finally came out with my dream color - Orchid purple. Unfortunately, it's no longer my dream jacket. It's been redesigned for a closer fit, so you can't layer your clothing as well. Also, they removed the pit zips, so you can't vent the jacket when you overheat. I guess women aren't supposed to work up a sweat. You'll look good standing still, but don't try to do anything active in this jacket, as the tighter fit means less range of motion in the shoulders. The North Face offers a lifetime guarantee, but unfortunately, a lifetime guarantee doesn't do much good if the jacket's design doesn't work. This is a fashion jacket, not activewear. Now it's just a jacket for wannabees, not serious sportswomen. Wear it to the mall or hang out on campus and be fashionable, because that's all it's good for. Don't take it out where the real action is, because it will fail you on the trail.
I returned my two new Denali jackets, and I won't be buying any more. I'll buy used ones in the old style - ones that actually work. But I sure do miss that Orchid purple. :+(
