It's just rain; it should be fun.

When it rains, you envision mud, colds, and wet clothes, but when your little adventurer sees the rain, he just sees fun in his future. Let him have his fun and stay dry too in the Boys' Zipline Rain Jacket from The North Face. The high-tech HyVent layer blocks moisture and keeps him dry while the articulated hood protects his head and won't restrict his movement. Fully sealed seams mean water can't sneak in through the stitching, and elastic cuffs holds back wind and rain that might try to blow into his sleeves.

Good Jacket for kids

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Weight: 36 lbs

We ordered this jacket in the XXS (5) for our 3 year old son that is currently in 4T. We did this since we ordered him the Thermoball in 4T last winter when he was a 3T and we realized it was a perfect fit at the end of the season. This jacket is large on him, but we roll up the sleeves and he is fine. The body doesn't look to big and the length is still okay. He is a average waist size, tends to outgrown length of pants before the waist.

That is how described their warranty when I purchased I pair of ski pants five years ago.

I just went through a nightmare warranty battle with I have purchased thousands of dollars of gear from here over the years and I have even recommended this site to friends. That all changed today. I purchased a pair of $500 norrona ski pants when backcountry offered lifetime warranty on all their products. The issue I had with the pants is that the inseam tore and the stitching came out resulting in a hole in the crotch. No problem I figured, this is the first time I have needed anything repaired or returned that I purchased from here, the item has a lifetime warranty and it should be a simple fix, so I gave them a call. To my dismay I discovered the warranty was false and that backcountry essentially sold me on a lie. On the phone I was told by three different people that the warranty policy had been changed and there was nothing they could do to compensate me besides giving me the contact of the manufacturer, but they were even unable to do that. The pants I had purchased were from a subsidiary of Norrona called Whiteout. I made three calls to backcountry and no one could even give me a number for the manufacturer because they didn't know who made the pants. I guess I had to find that out on my own. The person I talked to the first time said they did not know the manufacturer's contact but they would send an email to me of proof of purchase so I could show the manufacturer since I no longer had a receipt. I never got an email. I called again and still no information on who to contact however I did get an email this time but it was from a different purchase I had made and the pants were not on it. The third time I called I had already figured out who made the item and just wanted the contact information for the manufacturer. I was advised I should just try contacting gore-tex to get the problem fixed even though it was a seam that went bad and not the fabric itself. At that point I gave up talking to them and never did I receive the reciept or proof of purchase.

I understand that backcountry probably did need to get rid of the no questions lifetime garuntee because it was being abused or they were getting way more returns than they had expected. However, for them to make no offer to compensate a loyal customer on an item with "no questions lifetime warranty" who had never claimed warranty before. Refusing to even take a look at a simple problem to see if there is anything they could do to help is arrogant. What backcountry has done is unethical and I will no longer do business with them. I advise doing business with local retailers who actually care about their customer, stand true to their word and know their product inside and out, in the long run it will be worth it. And you won't feel guilty about trying it on locally then turning around and buying it online! If you still choose to shop here because they have a lot of good brands be forewarned of the slippery policies and lack of warranty. I have no affiliation to active junky but if you still are going to shop here get an account with them and get an additional 12% back. I'd rather see you with the extra cash! This is the first time I have ever written a negative review on anything but I feel that it is well deserved.

Sizing Off

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small

I just received this in size M (10-12) for my average sized 9 year old boy. Held it up to his too-small size 7-8 Columbia jacket, and it is the same exact size. Nice jacket, but it seems to run very small. Also super bummed that I have to pay shipping to return the item. I guess I'm getting spoiled by other online retailers who offer free return shipping.

  • 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.

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.
