It's just rain; it should be fun.

- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
This jacket is just what we wanted. We live in Washington State, so with the rain and cool mornings, he wears it over his sweatshirt it T-shirt. He is just growing into the size 10-12 and this fit awesome without looking too big. I especially like the attached hood. It seems like when the good comes off, we lose it. He will wear it year round with it being a shell type jacket. I have now ordered another one for my daughter in the light green size 14-16. I would definitely recommend this jacket!

I have tried a northface girls' rain jacket(resolve reflective one) size M and it did fit me perfectly. Would this zipline boys' jacket size m work for me? If not so, what size should I get? What's the difference between northface girls jacket and boys jacket in terms of size? (Is the shoulder wider in a boys'?)
If you can fit a girls M than you can fit the boys M. I have both a boys and girls in a small and the boys looks a little bigger.
Works great...for a Woman too!
Bought this for a trip to Nicaragua during rainy season and it was fantastic. I bought a boys XL and usually wear a ladies sm or medium. Fit great, I only wish the pockets could zipper closed
Good Little Jacket, but don't stand too close to open flame
Sizing is a little small was my first impression, agree that the material is the appropriate weight for the application, used up in the Portland area and on the Oregon coast for a week - kept my 12 yr old son very dry & comfortable. Wicked rain no problem, good hood.
Couple improvements I could see or things to consider before I'd purchase again:
- Hand Pockets on the outside of the jacket do not have a zipper, which would be more ideal for a Rain Jacket meant to keep you (and your stuff in pockets) dry.
- Jacket is a bit on the short side length wise, fit is good around the torso for a thinner kid, but could be a bit longer for coverage.
** Also, first actual camping outing we did this past week my son was standing too close our campstove(as 12 yr old boys will do) and the fabric on the front totally melted! Affected size was about the size of a fist which was inside his pockets at the time. It didn't create a hold in the fabric but it's noticeably melted and crinkled now at that spot.
He likes the jacket and wore it around camp and during the day when it wasn't raining, looks good on, if not melted seems like it would be quite durable.
I and my son wanted to wear the same color to match the jacket.
Size was smaller.
Green color is Resolve Jacket.
Blue color is Zipline Rain Jacket.
Same size xl.
But Zipline Rain Jacket's feet are smaller than those of Resolve Jacket.
Lightweight and warm.
Rainy days can wear light

What is the difference b/t this and the Resolve jacket?
Hi the Zipline is mesh lined and the Resolve is nylon lined, so the resolve will be a little warmer then the Zipline...
Not Too Shabby
The jacket is in the perfect condition, exaclty the material I was expecting, light weight great for hikes or just good stolls on windy days.
The only disappointment I found was that it doesn't have a NorthFace logo on the back like all the other NorthFace things. Maybe I'm just picky.

Our son has a fleece coat that can snap into an outer shell. Is this coat eqipped with these buttons so that we could connect the two coats?
If it isn't - which shell should we look for?
This coat is not equipped to snap a fleece into the shell. The only boys jacket that The North Face makes with this feathers is the Vortex Shell Jacket. Hope that helps.
