This is a great jacket. Very interesting mix between a hardshell and softshell, and having the Gore-Tex membrane in a flexible-stretch format (who knew that was even possible?). I was really curious about this, and find it amazing. It is not too thick, and the backing knit material is about the weight of a thin t-shirt, but the combination of the layers together give it a little heft like a soft-shell, but less so. I've worn it very comfortably in 30-40 degree F weather with winds from 10-20 MPH with a fleece layer underneath (nothing too heavy). I could see it being perfect on a cool night, and in spring or fall, but would probably be reaching for something lighter as a primary rain jacket on a summer camping trip (though that wouldn't look quite as classy as this jacket would, and I'd choose this in town).

I picked up the dark heathered grey, and the look of it is excellent; on one hand the bonding of the 3 layer Gore-Tex material adds enough wrinkle-free stiffness to make it look like a nice wool garment, and then the relaxed flex gives it an impression of a great thick sweatshirt. I'm 5'7", 145 lbs, and the small fits great. I'm thoroughly impressed with the attention to details in the make. The thin flaps over each side of the pocket zippers meet exactly together in the middle, the way the stitching is done keeps a lot of stitches off the face giving it a clean look and reducing taped seams.

I was little worried that the waterproof zipper may be a little stiff, and while it is not as flexible as a standard zipper, it is not too bad at all - much better than expected. The face material is a little noisy when it rubs against itself, but it also seems extremely durable and abrasion resistant. Very few, and minor cons, this is a great jacket that I'm sure I'll be continuing to admire for several years.

I first saw this jacket advertised on television. It said it was "impossibly dry" so I thought that would be great because I go backpacking so often. After my first use, I found that add was wrong. After the first five minutes, the jacket started to absorb and the water started to reach my skin. This jacket is basically a waste of money. I do not advise a purchasd.

                        I ordered this product three times, each time from a different site, due to the item received did not match the item ordered. Each place, including thenorthface.com had inaccurate color schemes listed. I even confirmed via email with a customer service representative with the thenorthface.com that I would receive gray with black logo the most recent time, even sent the the link to use. It was received as a gift to the recipient 7 hours away from me for the third and final time, yet inaccurate color once again. It has been sent back. Stores had the item, just never the correct size in this color scheme.

                          I've been a part-time ski instructor at Snowbird for 32 seasons, and am PSIA Level 3 Certified. I ski in TNF, Spyder, UnderArmour, Marker and Cloudveil. This jacket is GORGEOUS! The body fit is perfect on my 5'10" 165 pound frame, and the sleeves are a touch long, which is fine because my arms are on the long side and the adjustable cuff enables the wearer to set the sleeve length. The wonderful stretch shell fabric is perfect for spring skiing in temps of about 25 to 50 F with temp-appropriate light layering, making it my go-to coat for free-skiing days during much of March, April and May.

                          I love this jacket!! I lead swamp tours and nature outings. I recommend this jacket to every customer that rides on our tours. I've had Columbia jackets in the past but doesnt even begin to compare to the quality of my north face.

                          Fit is as the other reviewers said, the sleeves are longer than normal.

                              One of the best jackets I've ever purchased. However, sleeve length is too long. I had to roll the sleeves to make it look ok

                                I absolutely loved this jacket. Perfect for Vancouver weather. The weather sealing is what you expect from GoreTex products. The wind sealing is great - helps you keep you warm.
                                The outside fabric feels super nice. And the best part is is that it looks and fits amazing. I would Definitely recommend it.
