The North Face DryVent

The North Face DryVent
Dryvent™ fabrics are engineered to be fully waterproof, windproof and breathable. The outer face of the textile is treated with a durable water repellant finish that helps form droplets and repel water from the surface. Each multi layered textile is engineered to allow water vapor to pass through from the inside to the outside.

DWR tech

Durable Water Repellent
DWR (Durable Water Repellent) is a coating that is applied to fabrics which makes them water-resistant, or hydrophobic. A DWR finish doesn't interfere with breathability, which makes it perfect for adverse conditions in the backcountry.

The North Face WindWall

The North Face WindWall
WindWall is a fleece fabric that retains the comfort, flexibility and breathability of traditional fleece while eliminating wind chill, which enhances warmth. The unique bonding process cuts 80 - 95% of wind.

Product Reviews
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great quality, but had to return due to small hood and fit Bought this for an every day rain jacket, with hopes to wear in the city as well as on the trail. Loved the color and overall fit (though agree with others that it is a tad snug- I usually wear a small in tops, sweaters, etc, and definitely was glad I got the medium so that it was big enough to wear over a sweater). However, the hood is laughably small. When pulled up over a high bun, it barely reached my forehead (and my head is not particularly large) and felt tight, like it was pulling down on my bun the whole time. Since this is how I wear my hair 9 days out of 10, it wasn't something I could compromise and ended up returning the jacket.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This jacket does not work for me I love North Face and have been wearing it for more than 30 years. I have at least 5 North Face vests that I wear all year around. I went up 2 sizes (to an XL) for this jacket and while it zipped up I could not wear a heavy sweater or a vest underneath the jacket and still move even relatively freely. It is too constricting in the shoulder and other upper areas. Beautiful color and fabric but I think you need to be tall and thin to wear it. The label on the jacket when it arrived said Slim Fit. Believe it. I have ordered another jacket that says it is the classic or regular fit so I am hoping the fit is better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wore 7 days straight on the Inca Trail in Peru!! I looked+ tried on thousands of rain coats by all different brands for my hiking trip to Peru during the rainy season. I knew the only way i would enjoy the trip was if i had a super comfortable jacket. This is the BEST rainjacket ever!!! Perfect for layering or by itself. I thought the price was very reasonable for the quality and material. I will be wearing this every day it rains for the next ten years. Style looks like lulu lemon, but feels and functions like north face. Made my trip and all my fellow hikers are ordering one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This jacket is perfect. I ordered the black jacket and there were only smalls left in stock. I measure on the larger side of small, so I almost always size up to a medium. After I purchased and read reviews, I was afraid it would not fit given that most people said it runs a bit on the smaller side. I was THRILLED when it arrived and fit perfectly and true to size. I can't wear bulky clothing under the jacket, but it does fit like I'd expect a small to fit. (There is also some stretch and give in the material.) The jacket seems durable, and I love that the pockets have zippers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Totally waterproof jacket [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is a totally waterproof jacket - not just water resistant. I live in Seattle so that's an important thing. The bad news is that if I'm working hard I absolutely roast in it - have to unzip, zip, unzip, etc. There is no ventilation under the arms. The only other thing is that I would like to see it have a small breast pocket like my other jackets. I usually wear a S or M and bought a M in this jacket so I could wear a warm layer underneath. Too cold without the sweater and too hot with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really nice jacket!! Originally bought size S, had to change to size M. Too tight around chest. I am 5'1" and 104 lbs, chest 34".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best all around jacket ever! Bought this in Beaver Creek, CO, early October. Use as my "dress casual" Jacket for cool/rainy/windy days... lining is soft and temp neutral so you don't get a shock if you put it on with bare arms... need a warm base layer under if its is windy/cooler.... I get compliments every time I wear it and everyone wants to know style info so they can buy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The rain coat I've been searching for [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I've been searching for a good waterproof coat that I can layer in cold weather and wear in bare sleeves on warmer, wet days. Most waterproof coats are too stiff, not comfortable to wear without long sleeves and have cuffs that cut into the wrists. This coat is soft inside and has a nice weight. The pockets are generous, so it fits my phone without danger of falling out or cutting into the hip when I lean over. A great coat!

Does the hood stash into collar when not in use? 

Asked by: Bkarns
Hey Bkarns, thanks for the question! Sadly this hood does not stash away when not in use, sorry about that but I hope this helps!
