Be warm, look good with The North Face Fort Point Flannel

October 11th, 2012 by

Every once in a while you come across a hoodie or shirt that becomes your go-to. You wear it all the time because it’s comfortable, it functions well and looks damn good, too. The insulated Fort Point Flannel might just be your newest go-to.

In between the plaid and the silky taffeta lining is 40 grams of The North Face’s synthetic Heatseeker insulation, making it ideal for use as a mid layer on really cold days or as a casual outer layer in milder conditions. The cotton/polyester blend flannel comes in three different colors–turquoise blue, fiery red, and utility brown–for a flashy, classic or subdued style that will look right at home whether you’re being forced to do fall yard work or putting in long après hours at the bar.

It has durable snap closures down the front as well as on the cuffs and two chest pockets that you probably won’t use unless you need to need to carry around some pens. TNF logos on the left front pocket and the right rear shoulder round out the details. The fit is a little on the large side as it is meant to be worn over other layers, so you may want to consider ordering a size down from what you normally would.

If you’re looking for a versatile and comfortable piece of clothing to get you through the winter, the Fort Point Flannel is definitely worth checking out.

Pros: Versatility, insulated piece that looks very casual

Cons: Lacks useful pockets
