Not worth it at half the price..

This super thin, nearly-see through fleece is an exceptionally disappointing offering from North Face. This should be part of the 'college line' where looks matter more than functionality. This is barely functional as a base layer, serving mainly a light dress sweater for work. All stock photos are deceptive, as the fleece looks substantial, not the filmy layer that actually shows up when you order it. The zipper pulls, as mentioned before, are not subdued. This -should- be the equivalent of the Mountain Hardwear Rannoch sweater, or the Arc'Teryx Covert Collar or Apache AR zip sweaters, but where they have thick Polartec 200 fleece and DWR water resistant finishes, this has super thin Polartec 100 and no finish. Doesn't belong in the Summit Series line at all.
I ordered a large, It just fits with a t-shirt underneath,
I ordered a large, It just fits with a t-shirt underneath, with just a little bit of room, maybe on the snug side. Does it run on the small size? Would you suggest exchanging it for an XL? I have a Scythe jacket in XL. A little roomy to wear layers underneath, but sleeves are a little on the long side.

i usually cut the north face some slack when i hear the company criticized for producing gear more trendy than functional, but this sweater is a real disappointment. the item itself runs extremely small, and the material is thin to a fault. i have similar sweaters from arc'teryx & mountain hardwear that not only look sharp, but are of far better quality. if you get this item in black beware the zipper pull tabs are not black as shown in the picture, but bright red. this is due to the company's decision to photograph the gear for its website prior to production instead of post production. at $120 i can not recommend this item. there are far better options out there. simply put this is a $60 sweater with an over inflated price tag.
Neither functional nor good looking

As others have noted, this product is see through thin and does not look as sharp as the picture would leave you to believe. I was hoping on getting a cool looking fleece that would also double as a nice mid layer for skiing but got neither. Fortunately, BC has a good return policy ....
