The North Face Resolve Jacket - Men's
The North Face: HyVent Technology
TNF Venture versus Resolve
Mt. Bachelor, OR
I dig this jacket. I'm 6'0 180 and the Large leaves room for layers, though the neck can get tight zipped up with a heavier fleece under it. I've hiked many miles in 50's temps with just a t-shirt and never found myself wanting for weatherproofness or breathability. It is noteworthy that if you intend to use the hood you WILL HAVE TO use a billed hat of some type. The hood has no other adjustments other than the face drawstring and it is BIG. Would most likely fit a helmet but will totally obscure frontal vision without a hat. Not a bad jacket for the price. HyVent is decent stuff.
What size should I buy? I have a 51 inch chest and a 54 inch waist.
I am shopping around for a technical shell. Is it alright if I use this TNF Resolve jacket (I already own this) as a technical shell until I purchase a true one? My main concern is that this is a rain jacket... not a technical shell and I question its ability to breathe and also stand up to abuse of skiing, hiking, climbing etc.
Also its helpful to go to an REI or local shop and get advice on specifics based on where you will be hiking/climbing/skiing etc. Do your research first on climates & specs on where you will be using said gear. Also know if you are going to be getting adventurous keep in mind that your clothing/gear is an extension of your safety gear and choosing the wrong gear can be dangerous to you and any one in your group. So knowledge is key & vital so don't cut corners when buying your gear but also don't just assume that the most expensive or newest flashy thing on the market is necessarily your best option. On that same note be mindful of certain shops or employees that may try and sell you on an item trying to make their commission or getting a sell. Your life & safety are far more important & most experienced outdoorsmen know this can happen from time to time. One last tip, when I went on a trip to Patagonia Chile with the NOLS (National Outdoor Leadership School) that their supply lists for various trips were very helpful & may help when packing & deciding what's 100% needed vs. looking to reduce your gear/pack's total weight. There are many ways to consolidate gear by buying versitile layers or items that can double as or be used for multiple applications. Example being an outer shell, which can be very versatile in practical & even survival situations. Hope this long rant can be helpful, and remember safety first & your clothing/gear is an extension of your safety & can make you or break you. Cut no corners & do your research on what you are buying, even if you feel that a store or salesman has adequately explained a product to you. Humans can make mistakes or be motivated by making a sale, and those mistakes translate into potentially life threatening or very dangerous situations when adventuring out in the great outdoors. From mountain tops to beginner level hikes, safety always comes first & can never be taken too seriously. Enjoy & don't forget to pause from time to time to look around and take in the beauty around us, whether in a skyscraper among a metropolis or waking to see the fog lifting from the dew covered forest revealing a beautiful field of eid flowers, bcuz the majority of life happens on the journey to get where we are going. Most stress about getting from A to B and are always in such a hurry that they forget to enjoy the journey. With an open heart and mind nothing is impossible.

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

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

I'm going off to college next year and am looking into rain jackets to protect me from the weather. The two I cant decide between are the Venture jacket or the Resolve jacket from North Face. Could any body give me some pros/cons of both? I will mainly be wearing it to and from class if it rains and probably throw some layers under it if necessary. I'm looking for both protection from the rain and versatility
Congrats on graduating first of all. As far as the jackets are concerned are good jackets for shedding rain in all except the most heinous of downpours for extended periods of time, however going in between classes this shouldn't be a problem. Both jackets allow you stow away the hood when you don't need it which is helpful. On to the differneces! The Resolve uses a mesh liner on the inside to keep the waterproof material off your skin whereas the Venture does not. Also the Resolve uses a fleece lined collar and again the Venture doesn't. Overall, I think the Resolve is more for urbanwear, which is probably what you're going to be useing it the most for, whereas the Venture is more of a minimalist technical jacket. Hope this helps you out and good luck next year.
Okay one more question i am 5"11 and weight about 140 lbs. What size should i go for? Small or Medium?
That's a more difficult question to answer without knowing your exact measurements. I'd probably say a small but I'm guessing. You should look at the sizing chart and take measurements of your chest, torso length, and sleeve length to get the best fit. Best yet, go to an outdoor store and size them in person. Both the Venture and Resolve are pretty popular rain jackets and will most likely will be in stock. Sorry I couldn't give you a more definitive answer, but I hope this helps.

Are TNF logos embroidered or silk screened?
I have purchase the jacket and will answer my own question. Yes, all of the logos on this jacket are embroidered.
This may come off as a bit ignorant, but...
This may come off as a bit ignorant, but I need to understand so here it is. What does the 60g waterproof rating mean when compared to ratings in the usual mm? I have never seen a g rating before, only the mm. The only time i encounter this "g" is in the breathability factor or insulation rating... How does it convert to mm? In other words, how waterproof is this thing? It seems that only Backcountry uses this g rating... Please help! Not knowing is making me feel like a goon and ashamed to call myself a serious hiker and gearhead...
I think our content team must have made a mistake on this! 60g is definitely not the correct information for the waterproof rating on this jacket. It is made of 2 layers of North Face's Waterproof/Breathable HyVent material (Basically TNF's proprietory GoreTex type fabric, though it is not as waterproof as GoreTex).
Our Gear Guru team estimated that this fabric would be around 15,000mm, TNF wasn't providing this info on their website, but we will keep trying to track down this info.
On the Resolve Rain Jackets, how warm are...
On the Resolve Rain Jackets, how warm are they? We are going on the Colorado River Grand Canyon River Raft trip June 1-2. Would I need a sweatshirt under it?
There's no insulation to this at all, so if it's chilly you'll need an insulating layer underneath. Luckily, I've done that trip in June and it never really gets cold (at least not in the day time). Think of it this way: whatever the temperature is, dress for that, and if it's raining, wear this.
I would only put some stock in Jeff's assessment of the warmth value of what's basically just an outer layer shell. To stay warm, you will definitely need at least a thick sweatshirt or maybe a fleece under the Resolve. HyVent as a layer works well at keeping out rain, and to some degree, trapping in some of your body heat, but it's really just for weather, and is not insulation that you would want to count on.

I was directed here when I did a search for wholesale rain jackets. Do you sell to retailers wholesale?
Nope, sorry. Backcountry is a retailer, not a wholesaler.
