Get Venture, not Resolve

I purchased the Resolve for water/windproof protection during day hikes. As it is water resistant it can be slightly disappointing during a good thunderstorm. Also without pit zips it can be clammy while moving during said thunderstorm. The adjustable hood is great but only if you have a ball cap or helmet on, otherwise it slouches forward obstructing your view. The tuck-away hood is great if that is your thing but it will also get snagged by a messenger type bag for city commutes.
