Description

Light wind and water protection from The North Face.

When your girl is jazzed to be hiking with you but not so psyched on the treeless peak terrain (that wind is so cold), she'll be glad to have The North Face Altimont for the final summit push. This lightweight nylon ripstop shell is treated with a DWR coating to provide protection from light water and wind. Elastic side hems keep the Altimont in place and, when the wind dies down, she can stow the entire jacket into one of the hand pockets.

More wind protection than rain?

More wind protection than rain?

Responded on

Correct. This jackets is designed to protect against winds more than anything but the DWR coating will shed light rains should you get caught off guard.

Good jacket, bad purchase

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

The jacket is super lightweight and easily packable. However, I was very disappointed in backcountry as I'm pretty sure it was used. It reeked of cigarettes and had no tags. Too much hassle to return, so after multiple washings at least it doesn't smell anymore. The jacket itself is great though.

Nice lightweight windshell!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

It is actually really hard to find a nice lightweight shell for kids, this jacket fits the bill. A wind shell is an important part of my backcountry gear list. My daughters have taken this item on several backpacking trips so far. We have not used this shell in light rain but has a windblock it is very effective.

Is this jacket available in XL or XXL?...

Is this jacket available in XL or XXL? Also, does size vary on whether it's for a boy or girl? Because I would like this jacket, and honestly to me it doesn't seem like only for girls. But before I do get an XL or XXL I'm hoping the size sizes won't be different for girls, such as an XL for them could turn out to be a medium for men?

Unfortunately Walter, this jacket is not available in an XL or XXL. This jacket is sized for children, so if you were buying it for a young boy who would wear an XL or XXL, that might work--if we had those in stock.

We have plenty of men's rain jackets in those sizes, all at very good prices. Check out the Columbia Watertight!

Explanation

I read the description on this jacket and felt it would sufficient for the job as my daughter was in need of a new raincoat that would be versatile and would work for her upcoming camping trip.

Not the case when the jacket arrived. It is really a windbreaker, I can't see it witholding any type of rain, the pocket feature is cool but not neccessary nor needed. We went with the resolve instead which is more of a raincoat and has warmth to it, this jacket had no warmth factor at all.

I returned and re-ordered, unfortunately didn't know it would cost be $6.99:(
