Great Rain Jacket
There isn't much to be said after all the other reviews but I would like to address a few things. The cost for this jacket is very normal for a jacket of this caliber. The technology used isn't something you'd find in a lower priced competitor's jacket, such as the lining matrix being imprinted within the shell. And the fitting for this seems to be just right. When purchasing a rain jacket, I usually go for a standard fit since you'll want it to fit over your other layers in colder weather. As for warmer weather, the fit will leave space for better ventilation. A win-win situation. The only somewhat negative aspect is the packing into its own pocket. The bundle gets a bit stiff but nothing a little compression won't fix. Overall, I'm happy with this purchase. It's a great hard shell and versatile enough for all 4 seasons and environments. Also, at first glance the Venture and Resolve jackets look very similar and have similar technologies. In a nutshell, Venture is more for technical use and is lighter, whereas the Resolve is more for urban lifestyle, heavier, and has a removable hood. Hope this helps in your decision.

Excellent product. Exactly as expected. Quality, fit, and color just the way I wanted. I've been already asked by a few friends about it at work and for me it has already been a sucessful investment. I fully recommend the product and the seller. Product shipped and arrived as advertised.

Great raincoat
I bought this jacket to use as a raincoat, but ended up using it more as a windbreaker! Very stylish jacket, I even wear it to work in cool weather along with my khakis and button-down shirts. The jacket is super light and totally water-proof.

Great Light Weight Rain Jacket
Brought this for my older and younger brothers and they love it! My younger brother runs track and it keeps him dry during his cross-country meets and during his daily jogs. I also own one and would recommend it because it's the best rain jacket by far. The quality is up to par, but that's as expected from North Face.
