Score 25% Off the North Face's Mountain Sweatshirt

Comfy, versatile, and warm—and, for the moment, cheap!

(The North Face)

Spring in New Mexico means chilly mornings and sweltering afternoons. Although it's one of my favorite times of the year, it can make layering tricky. That's where a top like the North Face Mountain Sweatshirt ($110), which I wear almost every day, comes in handy. 

As you can tell from the photo, this is not your traditional cotton hoodie. The stretch-woven nylon shell looks technical but it's silky enough to wear for hours. Underneath, a thin layer of synthetic insulation provides warmth, while a peached-fleece bottom layer provides blissful next-to-skin comfort. The dropped hem makes it perfect for wearing to the office or other places you'd like a little more coverage, and I love that the cuffs are made from a stretchy compression fabric, which keeps them in place and cuts out drafts. Deep front pockets fit my iPhone 7 Plus perfectly. 

My only complaint: the face fabric can be prone to snagging. But as long as you don't plan on wearing it bushwacking, this versatile midlayer won't disappoint.
