Many breathable and wicking fleece softshell apparel feel great on calm days, but quickly lose thermal retention in moderate winter breezes. Whether you walk windswept ridges, wander stormy beaches or trek the concrete canyons of the central business district, take along the windproof protection and exquisite warmth of this Women's Sentinel Thermal Jacket from The North Face. It features an external windproof Gore Windstopper® soft shell fabric backed with a warm and wicking raschel fleece lining. The jacket cut is an alpine fit, so it tapers a little closer to your core without hindering your mobility with a bunch of fabric bunching. Also keep in mind that while The North Face Women's Sentinel Thermal Jacket scores a wind permeability rating of 0 CFM, it's highly water resistant--but not waterproof. This thermal softshell is an ideal utility piece that works well for a range of windy outdoor activities, including hiking, camping and climbing.
