Bought this with the intentions of using it as my every day winter shell and it has worked as i hoped it would. in 32 degree weather with winds i was able to stay warm with a 60g PrimaLoft Gold Insulation Eco polyester. Felt so comfortable. I am certain it could handle colder temperatures. Good size so you can layer under it.

Personally not a fan of shells
This coat is durable and stretches with you. I used it while skiing and had a hard time with the vent zippers, they were tight. I am typically a medium, but used a large on this coat.

Protects from the rain!
Runs a little bit large, but that's perfect to fit some layers underneath. I like the material since it feels very durable. Great jacket overall!

2 1/2 year review
Bought in spring of 2016. This has been worn consistently for 2 1/2 hard years of frequent climbing, fishing, trail running, backpacking, alpine, outdoor work and around town. I've loved this jacket as a well fitting, dependable, durable component of outdoor activity in my life. Depending on weather, I will lightly layer beneath with merino or with a base and puffy in colder weather. Pac-lite material has exceeded my expectations in terms of durability, and with regular dwr restoration a reasonable amount of waterproofing can be had. For the first year I had few issues with jacket wetting out except for in heavy or extended rain (which YOU SHOULD EXPECT FROM ANY BREATHABLE RAIN JACKET)If you want a fully waterproof jacket you'll have to get at least a 3+ layer system, spend a paycheck on Arcteryx or better yet just go get a pvc poncho and be done. 2nd year on, considerably less water protection usually allowing protection in lighter on and off rain but not much more. ~2-3 times a year I restore the dwr with a Gear Aid or Nik Wax wash and that has worked well to extend it beyond the typical life of a rain shell. There has been absolutely zero delamination issues as I have seen with countless other mid to lower priced rain jacket materials( precip, torrentshell, etc). No outter deterioration other than losing a fight with a barbwire fence resulting in a small tear. Life goes on. Material is quiet and moves well with you and can vent very well with good inherent breathability and pit vent options on jacket. I noticed that this jacket really absorbs skin oils in particular around wrist cuff, along zipper flap where your hand swipes and around neck/shoulders. This certainly impairs the dwr function as it clogs the pores and does not allow breathing. This was more noticeable to me with a green jacket color as the oil spots would darken the material. Reducing skin contact or being less of a dirtbag and bathing more (yeah right) will help with this. The fit is slightly boxy but form flattering and athletic inspired; TNF did a good job making this jacket not only look good but move with you. Hood fits great, especially in conjunction with a hat, giving lots of motion and peripheral vision while offering great weather protection; I didn't wear a helmet all that much with the hood up, but it is possible, even if Outdoor Gear review didn't like it. All cinch points have worked well for the life of the jacket. The inner pocket cinches are easy to use and adjust for wind/ snow conditions and I like the multiple hood adjustments to keep it in place when up or out of the way when down. Wrist cuffs are velcro and have been long lived and functional. Zipper has held up better than expected, and has only in the last few months gotten a bit sticky around the upper 2/3 of the zip. A bit of petroleum jelly or bees wax (only on the zipper) can help extend the life and keep it working smoothly. It's 13oz. I think that's great weight unless you're really, really counting ounces( PCT, ATers) but then you start compromising durability with thinner fabric so choose carefully. I've been shopping for a new rain jacket, and it seems to fall in step closely with the Marmot Minimalist and OR Foray jacket. I'm weary of OR gear so will decide soon between the two. I paid $170 for this in 2016 with a friends discount. The only difference in the version I have and this newer one is the material went from 50d to 75d and I'M REALLY BUMMED THEY DISCONTINUED THE GREEN COLOR WHY DID YOU DO THAT IT MATCHED MY EYES SO WELL. Overall a bomber, long lived, good looking jacket that gets the job done. thumbs up!

Have used in several showers/rain storms now, and every time this jacket wets out within half an hour. It does block the wind rather well in cold and snowy weather though. The draw string on the hood has already broken and pulled loose on one side, so when i cinch it down it is only affecting half the hood.

Good quality rain jacket
Lightweight, feels very soft to the touch, the fit is just fine so you can put layers on you and won't feel bulky. Rain protection is fantastic, I haven't used this for long so not sure how long it will last but so far it works fine under tropical rainy conditions.

I've owned two Large sized North Face sweatshirts in the past, but they fit more like a Medium. Based on other reviewers similar height and weight I was hesitant to order a Large, but ended up ordering a Medium. After trying it out a few days I returned it for a Small. It was too big for my preferences. The arm length was an inch short of my fingertips and the waistline was too long. On a positive note, it's lightweight and so far has survived some heavy downpours on my walk to work.

Light weight, nice fit.
This rain jacket is light and fits very well. I appreciate the design and color, too. It has worked well in heavy downpours. The sleeves are plenty long with snug cuffs to cover what is worn under.

This is Sick AF
That's what my brother said. Works well on the scooter in the rain, blocks the wind, and keeps him warm. Comfortable. Feels great. Many functional pockets.

Lightweight and Effective
This jacket is really nice because of its extreme light weight and thin material. The design has a nice tailored fit and it does a great job a keeping the water out. The only reason I give it four stars is that the material feels wet after rained on - probably because of how thin it is; I believe this is what "Jone E" is referring to in his review below. I usually wear a thin sweater underneath it anyway so that problem is fixed. Overall very good raincoat - my friends are always wanting to borrow it.

This jacket is bomber, spoke with one of my customers about the product, and found out his impressions. He said he had a 3 day trip up to the Adirondacks, and it down poured on them, and the North Face Dryzzle Jacket held up super well for him, kept him completely dry. Great Outer-Layer. And he was really pleased that he had brought it with him.

This is the lightest TNF shell I have owned, and I see it as a premium windbreaker that doubles as a rainjacket. This is perfect since this allows for more effective layering. Put a Thermoball on underneath and you have a very toasty combo. It is a pretty sharp jacket and of course Gore-Tex!

6 month review
Bought this jacket back February, and since then it's been on rainy backpacking trips, and between my car and office. Pros: The fit is long enough to cover my torso and waist line, and the slight dip in the back helps the rain waiter drain off my back instead of down the back of my legs. The fabric makes it light, packable, and not loud/crunchy. Cons: Gore-Tex Paclite 2L fabric. If you've never tried Paclite fabric before, please please please do so before you ever buy a product made with it. This is not your standard bomb-proof Gore-Tex experience you might be expecting, and that's because they removed a critical third layer in the Paclite line. The 2 layer system, simply stated, means that it will block rain, but not condensation. I suspect that the reviewer below that called this "not waterproof" had this experience. After some time in the rain, condensation will build up on the inside of the jacket, causing you to feel like the rain went right through it. I can go into why that happens for anyone curious, (just ask). Summary: The jacket is cut well and works perfectly CONSIDERING the fabric choice. I would not ever recommend this jacket for a rainy weekend adventure outdoors. Use this for urban environments where you're not exposed to downpour rain longer than 15-30 minutes, and it will work flawlessly.

Hello John, Thank you for your informative review on this product. Can you please explain how and why condensation can form on the inside of the jacket? What can be done by the wearer to prevent condensation? Do you recommend this jacket for working outdoor in the rain for long periods of time? I am looking for a light weight and mobile alternative to my TNF Summit L5 Fuseform Goretex jacket. Even though it is lighter than other 3L Gore-tex jackets, I find it too bulky and immobile for rigorous activities. I thought the Dryzzle would be that perfect rain jacket, until someone complained about wetness/condensation. Please help.

Worth the extra money and solid fit
Great rain jacket for the money. Side pockets are not waterproof but has a good adjustable hood and is Gore Tex. Wish North Face made gore-tex rain pants. I'm 5'8" and 165 lbs with athletic build and a medium fits great. Still room for a sweatshirt underneath.

I was looking for a lightweight gore-tex rain jacket and this is perfect. Packs down super small and is very waterproof while still being breathable.

I bought this jacket because it is supposed to be waterproof. Unfortunately, the first decent rain I was able to get out in (I do live in California), I was out in a decent pour for only about 1/2 hour and the inside of the jacket was quite wet and the exterior was starting to get soaked. I am in the process of returning it. And, I'm bothered by the fact that I'll have to pay the return shipping. The jacket does have some nice features, although there isn't a way to roll up and secure the hood.

I bought this jacket to be used as an outer layer for winter rain and wind protection. It has performed beautifully.

Great Light Jacket
Black looks sharp. Love the vents and pockets in the jacket. A great light jacket that will get a lot of use in the SouthEast.

North face is always solid

Bought this jacket after my North Face Kichatna was lost or stolen at a ski resort. So bummed and wanted something to get though summer hikes. The Kichatna was awesome like a portable tent, but heavy. What I like about this jacket here its light. It seems made well but not a fan of the inside material. It feels rain jacket like which are know to be claimy. Yet went for a hike in the pouring rain and I was so dry and not sweating. I like some hyvents but rather Gore-tex so paid for this in hopes it vents better then hyvent. It is true to size love the fit more then anything. I wear a large and it is perfect for a large. With the Kichatna I was forced to get a XL and it always felt a little to big. Over all a great jacket for the price. I am planing some fall climbs and hoping I can bring this light packable jacket to protect me from any of the winds, rains or other elements I come across.

Is this jacket Gore-Tex protected? On the North Face site it says it is, but I see nothing on here.
June 27, 2017
Hey Devin! Yup the material is 2-layer Gore-Tex Paclite! It's a bit hidden in the material specs on here, sorry about that! Let me know if you have any other questions on it and I'd be happy to help on that! Cheers, Connor
