A lightweight rain shell built for a range of activities as wide as the Amazon.

- Underarm zip vents let you dump your body’s excess heat once the sun breaks up the rain event
- Sealed seams keep the rain from dripping down your jacket and sneaking in through the fabric joints
- Front storm flap on the inside of the zipper keeps stormy weather from entering
- A soft collar lining feels nice against your skin while you hunker down and wait for the tropical storm to subside
- Adjustable hood, hem cinch cord, and hook-and-loop cuffs seal out sideways rain
- Two alpine pockets are accessible while you wear a climbing harness

Layered for zzz's
Catching up on some sleep, layered up in my TNF Pursuit jacket after an epic weekend in Whistler.
Persuit at high school
A nice warm layer underneath the waterproof hyvent layer makes for some cozy microclimate

I am 6'4" and 265 lbs. Big, athletic build. Would an XXL work?
I'm 6'3" and the XL does me well. It's quite spacious around my body cus I'm only 170lbs. If you want a tighter fit go for the XL, but if you want to put any layers at all underneath it go XXL for sure.
At 6'3, 245, athletic build, the xxl is great in the shoulders, arms, and back, but unfortunately, a bit baggy around the waist. Draw string helps. Draw string in hood works great too.
Bought in California, but since living in Switzerland, have used hiking, rock climbing, and camping in the alps during wind, rain, hail and light snow. Worked great on each adventure, but when really active, got pretty warm inside. (But...better to be warm and dry than cold and wet). Pit vents helped let the heat out.
Would give 8 out of ten stars! Would buy again!
This is a great jacket. I'm 5'10'' and 165 and got the large. A little big but perfect with a layer beneath it. I normally don't trust the breathable and waterproof idea but the Hyvent 2.5L is wonderful. I bicycle to work every day and wear this jacket rain or shine and it does wonders. I stay dry in the rain and fog and don't end up with a clammy jacket. I also wore it doing a half century ride/trail run and it breathed when it needed to and kept me dry when it rained. North Face got it right.
The North Face Pursuit
The jacket is waterproof, breathable and windproof, which is all I need!

I'm 5' 11'' and 175 lbs. I've purchased a Patagonia torrent shell LARGE jacket and found it to be a too big and puffy feeling. The sleeves were to long for body as well. Do you think a Medium is recommended? Thank you.
I'm 5'10" 165lbs and have TNF Pursuit in a large. It's a touch baggy but perfect with a fleece underneath it.
I just tried it on today , Im 6'0 and around 185,Large fit nice but M fit me perfect not too snug not too loose. you need gorilla arms for pursuit jacket ,the sleeves are really long
Just got back from a rainy windy slightly sleeting 5.5hr hike and it held up well. Good jacket keeps weather out hood adjusts nicely and breaths well...would I but it again...idk...great for the price and for most activities. Love the alpine pockets and don't know would more jackets don't have them. Only complaints which would be solved by getting the loenitus (*sp*) jacket... Double cuffs to really keep the weather out and a caller instead of going straight to the hood.

Atop mt Mansfield Vt Oct 2nd rain, 50mph gusting winds, sleet....dry.

I have been researching rain jackets for a while, and have settled on the Pursuit. I am 5'8" and 150lbs. Does anyone have any info on sizes and how true they are? I was thinking a small, but not sure whether it will be big enough.
I would personally go with a medium. I'm a little bigger than you, but I'm the same height, and I think a small would be just a little snug.

I'm 6'1" and about 205 muscular build what size would best fit me L or XL. I plan on using this over anything from a t-shirt to a sweater
For layering over a t-shirt or sweater a Large will probably work. Anything more like a light puffy or something else you'll probably want XL.
A large will NOT work, you need an XL. I have a very similar build to you.
HOpe this helps,

Does the denali fleece zip up with this jacket
No. If you want a jacket in a similar price range that can zip with the Denali, the Boxster would work.

How does this compare to the Venture jacket?
Not even close...this is membrane hyvent 2.5 the venture is a pu coating. That will wear down much faster then this. With a membrane you have a actual layer of fabric to wear before you have to start worrying. With the sales making them the same price or not its a great idea to snag this jacket...I just ordered mine yesterday!
According to the specifications, both the Venture and Pursuit has an equal waterproof rating of 25 psi (lbs per square inch), though I heard that they have 40 psi. The breathabilty rating is almost the same, though the Pursuit is slightly more breathable. The HyVent 2.5 Layer is more breathable and more durable as it is a waterproof membrane, not a polyutherene coating. This jacket is slightly lighter though they are both made of the same material. Both the Pursuit and the Venture have underarm vents and have adjustable hoods. The Pursuit's retail price is about $130, which is $30 more expensive than the Venture's price. One thing that the Venture has that the Pursuit does not is that in can stuff in it's own pocket. Overall, in terms of features and performance, I would chose the Pursuit, however, if you want the one with a lower price, you would want to choose the Venture.
