What's the difference between the Resolve, RDT Rain, and Venture? Which will perform better in heavy rain?

eh

Got this jacket on clearance (good part) - it wouldn't have been worth any more than the 30$ I got it for. Now-a-days you can get something much more breathable and waterproof for only a few bucks more than the list price (and often even less than the list price here). It's a little ridiculous that they say it is breathable fabric (600 g/m� is about 2-3 times less breathable than most average jackets - for something in the price range you can have 3x the waterproof ability and 5x the breathability if you shop around) . You're mostly paying for The North Face name on this jacket.

If its cheap it's an OK jacket to have for doing normal errands or if you don't want a technical rain jacket. I have mine in orange as a throw-on jacket (used to be hard to get orange rain jackets) so I don't get shot in the woods during hunting season - the color might be my favorite part!

TNF is really behind the times when companies like MHW are pushing fast ahead with their waterproof fabrics. Even "generics" like stoic, ems, and rei have far and away better waterproof fabrics in my eyes.

Good Rain Jacket

Gets the job done- does get a little warm if wearing for a while

Good Buy!

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

Very lightweight. Really for the guy who wants a little protection from the wind or cold, but doesn't chill easily. My husband doesn't care for bulky jackets, so this was perfect!

Not meeting the Expectation

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

The jacket seems to be looking great in the website but actually it seems to be a wind cheater variety so have to return the same. That makes me feel Always by from stores by looking at it.

wear while eating ice cream

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

my shirt didnt get dirty. if i had a choice between the marmot membraine waterproof fabric and the north face hyvent fabric, ................. cant choose. was very impressed with previous waterproof jacket by marmot and now have this one which is about the same quality and just as breathable as marmot. just got this one because it was cheaper at the time. will withstand and big downpour. very durable fabric. no insulation whatsoever which is a good thing if your not a wimp. my only problem is that the hood is too big and droops down farther past my forehead and theres no stretchy cord adjustable thing in the back. it bugs me alot so i bought a marmot membraine brim hat and i am very content with both. well worth the price.

is this compatible with Nuptse 2 down jacket? if it does, would a small fit for a Nuptse 2 down jacket small ?

Responded on

Unfortunately, it's not. I would look into the Mountain Light or the Varius Guide Jacket if you'd like something you can zip the Nuptse into. Check the Varius Guide out here:

The Definition of Value

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

When I first tried this on, I thought it was a much more expensive garment. The fit and the feel are pretty high end. It took several days of using it to realized it had elastic cuffs, the only feature that is low end. The jacket adequately repels water, fits great and looks much more expensive than it is. I'd say that's a win. For the price, it's hard to find a better value.

Great jacket, but could be better

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I have worn this jacket through everything from a light rain to a complete downpour, and I have never had to worry about getting wet. With the North Face Thermoball as a warming layer, this has become my go to outer shell. The only down side is the hood. I wish it had a cinch to keep it from covering my eyes, but I can get over that.

Best Answer Responded on

The North Face Resolve jacket is a great waterproof-breathable rain shell that will protect you from the rain and wind, but it is not an insulated jacket and does not offer the warmth you may be looking for in a winter jacket. Check out The North Face Condor Triclimate jacket, which offers similar waterproof protection with the addition of a removable synthetic liner to boost your warmth during the winter: http://www.backcountry.com/the-north-face-condor-triclimate-jacket-mens?ti=UExQIENhdDo6MTo0OmJjc0NhdDExMTAwMTc

Love this jacket, you should snatch it

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

Grab a North Face Resolve jacket they keep you so dry! Even when the rain is falling heavy from the sky. I like the basic black, it's as dark as midnight. When I'm camping I literally leave this thing on all night into the morning light. It's great because it's super light weight, and if it's chilly a thin base layer will keep you feeling toasty and great. All in all this is my favorite rain jacket I've owned so far. It handles bad weather with ease and still looks sleek at the bar. I recommend you grab one, the North Face is always fun, and with Backcountry's awesome customer service backing you, you've pretty much already won!

Hate getting wet in the shower? Buy this

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

Exactly like the title says. This guy is pro at keeping the water off. Not the best windbreaker, but with a warm layer underneath you'll be fine. Love this for backpacking. So lightweight.

So Far So Good

  • Fit: True to size

I've had this jacket for a little over a month. This will be my jacket to wear on my 18 mile round trip commute to work on my bike. I wore this in some serious rainstorms already and remained completely dry. A lot of this is thanks to the hood perfectly fitting on my helmet. I recommend this product.

hood fitting over your helmet?

Don't bet your life on it

I bought this thing off of Steep and Cheap, one of Backcountry.com's sister sites, and I got a great deal on a jacket that seemed awesome. I will admit it does a pretty good job most of the time, I used it all summer when I worked at a summer camp and we had more rain some of those weeks than you can imagine. Just don't trust it with anything valuable in your pockets when its an all out downpour. We were doing a night hike on the AT to see the sunrise at one of me and my friends favorite spots and as soon as we were about to start hiking the rain started, we thought it would slow up or something but it got harder and harder. If your going to big bucks on a North Face rain jacket, go ahead and get the Venture jacket. I haven't experienced it but it has a newer version of the Hyvent material this jacket uses and other people suggested getting that one over this one. I wish I had taken their advice, would have been a little more expensive, but would have been worth it in the long run

Very nice.... Does the job

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

This is a very nice piece of clothing and does what it's meant for. Kept me dry in the rain The mesh lining is a nice touch, however it should be noted that there is no mesh lining inside the sleeves, only the torso.

The hood can be tucked away in the collar, however this makes the collar feel bulky andtook some getting used to. Sale price made this a great purchase

great jacket esp. for price

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

got this jacket for a great price from steep and cheap. i just got back from hiking from the snowbowl parking lot to the base of mount elden. 14 miles in the rain. It kept me dry the entire time in monsoon season here in flagstaff. my tee shirt underneath was dry by the time the rain stopped. the jacket dried out halfway down the 2.5 mile descent down elden. i cant say that i was warm with just a t shirt underneath but when im walking around town it keeps me warm enough for the early fall weather so far. very impressed!

My husband loves it!

What a great purchase. We were back and forth between Adventure and Resolve and decided Resolve. Bought it a little bigger so that he could sometimes wear his soft shell underneath and it will work great. Love Back Country! They matched another price and I always feel very confident that my merchandise will arrive and......I appreciate the free shipping

Good for hangin' round the campsite

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

This is my first rain jacket purchase for backpacking. I took it into the Sierra Nevada for a week. The comfort and mobility it provides definitely beat your standard poncho, and I didn't notice it getting all moist and nasty inside. I didn't wear it in extended heavy downpours, but it kept the water off just fine in the rain that I did face. Even though it doesn't actually have insulation, I found it served well as a windbreaker and really helped to keep me warm. The soft fabric collar is great for comfort and helping to maintain heat. On top of that, I got several compliments from fellow campers on this jacket. Style points are always cool (even if you're roughin' it in the back country). The only real complaint I have at this point is that the hood tends to hang down over my eyes making it difficult to see. I also didn't hike much in the jacket. I just get too hot with the pack and all. So I can't say how it holds up with the pack on and me clambering over boulders. For the times I did use it, this jacket seemed to work fine. And the sale price offered by Backcountry definitely made this a worthy purchase.

It's Good.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This jacket is a pretty good jacket, I love the way it fits and it gets its job done nicely. I will say the downside is that after one wash mine started to "blob" on the rain instead of bead repel it off. I did not get wet but it just does not bead off the rain anymore, but over all fits great, looks great, lightweight, keeps you dry!

Does this jacket stow away in one of its own pockets?

Responded on

Yes and no, you can do it but is it designed for it no. As you can see in my picture the zipper is inside out but it does stow away pretty good in the pocket:)

I will give you a suggestion of a method of jacket stowing that I use that actually works better and tighter in my opinion and works on any jacket as long as it has a hood. You lay it out zipped up and then fold the sleeves in so they line up perfectly with the hood so you have a line of jacket with the hood on top. Next just tightly roll the jacket from the bottom into the hood! It works great! Look at my 2 photos and you can use my hand and see the differences in size from the 2 methods:) hope these helped you out :)
