The North Face Men's Varius Guide Jacket

Even if you're not a guide, you'll enjoy the waterproof protection of this Men's Varius Guide Jacket from The North Face. It's a versatile technical hard shell that works well for camping, traveling and conducting field research. The Varius Guide Jacket is seam sealed and breathable, but it doesn't have a fleece lining or insulation. This makes it ideal for mild temperates and tropical climates where rain falls in dense, shimmering sheets of precipitation. The fully adjustable--and removable--hood extends upward to protect your lower face from wind and water. Pit-zip vents beneath the sleeves allow you to increase the airflow inside this jacket without soaking your clothing. An internal zippered security pocket keeps important documents and small electronics secure and out of the elements. If you need to add in additional clothing layers, The Men's Varius Guide Jacket is fully Zip-in compatible with identically-sized fleece insulation pieces made by The North Face.

What's not to like?
The varius guide jacket is my new "go to" jacket for so many different weather conditions. First of all, it's an awesome shell by itself and extremely water and wind proof. I've worn it in several extreme cold downpours and remained totally dry. All zippers and pockets are very easy to maneuver. When worn with a liner (I use the Denali) it is plenty warm enough, almost too warm, although we've been having an unseasonably warm winter and most of the time I have just worn it without the liner. It's fairly easy to zip the liner in also. The jacket is true to size; I wear medium in almost any kind of jacket and medium fits just fine. I got a great deal from Altrec on this jacket and have not worn any other jacket since October. It is well worth the investment, in my opinion, to own a North Face and if you already have a Denali or other jacket to use as a liner, this is a real wise and logical purchase.

This jacket is great but on the really windy days you do need a insert. cause it blocks the wind with amazing results but without a liner of some sort the fabric just transmits the cold on to you anyway.

The jacket is great. Great fit, and keeps you warm. The insulation isn't too bad, my only concern with the jacket was the actual zipper. After a couple of times wearing it though it broke in and works just fine. Overall, the jacket fits extremely well and I recommend it to anyone.
