How Do North Face Hoodies Fit? (With Table)

According to my research, only some North Face hoodies like M’s Tekware® Fleece Full-Zip Hoodie run small. The number of hoodies that ran small is very few.

Because most North Face hoodies run true to size and the good chunks run big in sleeves and body to an extent where it is good to get a size down.

Among, Men and Women, there are no women’s hoodies from the north face that I found to run small however many of them run big, some are not that big and roomier to get a size down but hoodies like W’s City Standard Hoodie run so big that even other users advised to get at least one size down.

North Face Hoodies Fit Types

The North face hoodies come in 3 types of fits:

  • Slim fit: It is for those who don’t want even an inch of extra space. Slim fit hoodies run close to the body and that’s why most commonly referred to as form-fit hoodies. However, they accomodate suffecient mobility and space to worn over base layers.
  • Standard fit: If you found any TNF hoodie that seem to be on looser side but still the body cuts like waist, chest, and good depth of curve is visible around the stomach area than that hoodie is considered as the north face standard fit hoodie.
    Such hoodies have enough space to worn over mid layer and offer even better mobility compared to the slim fit.
  • Relaxed fit: The hoodies with relaxed fit don’t seem to highlight the body curves. Such hoodies most of the time run big throughout the body though the lenght may still be appropriate. Such hoodies can even be worn over heavy mid layer
