j. shieldswrote a review of The North Face Stormy Trail Jacket - Men's on December 12, 2012
Familiarity: I've used it several times
Granted, I'm usually pretty warm anyway, especially about 5 minutes into my run, but...
Breathes like a garbage bag. Obviously does a great job of blocking the wind and rain, but at the cost of making you sweat heavily. Might be better suited to road or trail biking in sketchy conditions where you're more concerned with wind and water protection than breathability. Just didn't work for me for running. Exchanged the Stormy Trail for the TNF Windstopper Hybrid jacket -- much better option for me. Blocks the wind, sheds rain, and breathes great.
