I am a 5'1.5" 19 y/o girl. I bought this jacket for my trip to Brazil, since I hear it rains a lot. I wore it during a freak thunderstorm here at home, and I had to ride my bike down the road for the neighbors, and came home completely dry and a little toasty. I bought it in a medium, and its large enough to put a sweater under or something, but because I personally am so short, the sleeves and body are a little long. The hood doesn't stay as well as I'd like, or maybe because that was I was wearing a pony tail, but besides that, I LOVE it. :)

      Comments about The North Face Resolve Jacket - Women's:

      Do not buy this jacket if you want something that is truly waterproof! I cannot tell you how sick I am of products being advertised as "waterproof" that are at best, water resistant. I expected better from the North Face. I bought this explicitly because I needed something to be actually water PROOF for biking and hiking in the rain. I wore this today in moderately heavy rain to the post office and back today--about 20 min total in the rain, and water was soaking through all over the place. My phone was zipped up in one of its pockets and was wet, and my shirt under the jacket was all wet. This truly is unacceptable for an item advertised to be waterproof. Do not buy this!

      Definitely not waterproof

      By 

      from Calgary

      Comments about The North Face Resolve Jacket - Women's:

      This product is definitely not waterproof. I have gone through two of these coats now because I assumed the first coat was defective and exchanged it for another. They both seemed promising at first with beads of water rolling off of them but within a minute or two water begins to absorb and soon enough the coat is soaked through. I expected more from a North Face coat and this evening I will be taking my second coat back and buying a Mountain Equipment Co-op raincoat. Do not buy this if you would like to stay dry.

          Great Jacket

          By 

          from Undisclosed

          Comments about The North Face Resolve Jacket - Women's:

          I like this jacket better than the Venture jacket. Though both jackets are lightweight, the Resolve has a mesh lining and the Venture does not. As a result, the Venture sticks to your skin and it's like wearing a trash bag. The only complaints I have are that it doesn't have a fabric "hook" for hanging and that the hood adjustment cords do not have a plastic piece to keep them in place. Customers should know this jacket runs a bit small. Only order a larger size if you plan to wear bulky items underneath. If wearing a thin layer or t-shirt, normal size should be fine.

            Comments about The North Face Resolve Jacket - Women's:

            Would have given 5 stars if the colors matched! I bought this jacket in Balsam Blue. The actual color of the jacket seemed to match up pretty accurately, but on the website, they displace the jacket as having orange pocket drawstrings. When I got my jacket in person, the drawstrings were grey. I was a little bummed, but I still love this jacket either way. I don't mind that the drawstrings are grey, but just wanted to let people know who may actually want them to be orange that mine didn't come that way. I checked my item tag on the jacket and matched it to the website so I know I didn't order the wrong color. Other than the color, I love this jacket! I am 5'2 and a half, and 108Ibs. The website said to order an extra small, but I ordered a small because my chest size is 32DDD and with the xs, I had a feeling it would be too tight in the chest. A small fits perfect for someone of my size who is busty. I also ordered a small so I can wear sweatshirts under it because I know this is a light weight jacket. With, or without the layers underneath, it is a perfect fit! The sleeves might be a tiny bit long, but that is hardly noticeable to me. I can not wait for it to rain here in Seattle so I can test it out in the rain!

            Comments about The North Face Resolve Jacket - Women's:

            I love these resolve jackets. Living in Upstate NY, it's not like we get any severe downpours the same way they do in Florida or Hawaii or anything, but we have our share of heavier rains. That being said, since I found myself constantly reaching for my husband's Resolve that I picked up for his birthday last year, I figured it was time to buy my own. I really like this jacket - it's never done me wrong when I'm caught in a heavy rain while walking the dogs. As long as you wash it regularly the waterproofing is fine (keep in mind I haven't been stuck in the rain for hours or a monsoon, however). My biggest complaint though - NORTH FACE, WHY DOES THE MEN'S VERSION HAVE A FABRIC LOOP NEAR THE TAG TO HANG THE JACKET UP, BUT THE WOMEN'S DOES NOT!? Did the designer think women wouldn't like the convenience of hanging this jacket up by a loop sewn into the tag? If so, they were SADLY mistaken. Yeah, yeah I can put a loop in myself and it's not exactly a deal breaker, but why omit such a useful feature from the women's version?

              Thank you for making clothes and jackets in 2XL. I hate tight fitting jackets and having the ability to layer is fabulous. I wear this jacket so much I want every color. Although I get many compliments on the fushia jacket I chose.

              I ordered this jacket in Pache Grey (Grey with fuschia accents and logo) but when I received it the logo was white. The picture clearly shows the fuschia logo, and the coloring is why I ordered it in the first place. This was my first time ordering from this site, and I'm not impressed. :(

                Comments about The North Face Resolve Jacket - Women's:

                I was greatly disappointed in this jacket. I ordered this mid summer and saved it until fall to wear and unfortunately, will be returning it.

                I ordered the gray with the pink lining and had several concerns overall with this jacket:

                1. The picture is deceiving as the photo appears the inside of the hood is white/gray but really the inside of the hood is bright pink (a little too much pink for me)
                2. There is no inside hook on the inner collar to hang the jacket up? ....this is really strange
                3. There are no pull ties to tighten the hood so hood easily slips off your head in the wind
                4. The zippered pockets kept getting stuck on the fabric
                5. Overall the jacket is a pretty tight fit - not able to wear a sweater or sweatshirt really underneath

                would not recommend

                Purchased this jacket before my trip to Ireland. All I've ever heard about Ireland is how rainy it is and figured this would be a
                Necessary purchase. Well we lucked out weather wise for the majority of the trip, sunny clear skys. I was starting to think I wouldn't get much use out of my new rain jacket. That all changed on our walking tour of Dublin today. Not only did it rain, it poured! While my shoes were soaked I remained dry thanks to my north face resolve jacket! Thank you!!

                Comments about The North Face Resolve Jacket - Women's:

                Really like this jacket except the colors are not as pictured. The grey is darker than pictured and the pink is more fluorescent than it appears. But the worst part is that the inside collar is not grey as pictured, but is the shocking pink color, too much pink for me. I called customer service and they confirmed that the photo is a web-site error. Will probably return it.

                  I love this jacket! I've been looking everywhere for a raincoat that looks cute, fits right, and keeps me dry! I go on long hikes with my pup and go on a lot of mission trips; also have a brother who recently moved to the Pacific Northwest- this jacket is perfect. I can wear it or pack it in any sized bag for the mountains, my mission site, or for watching orcas in the ocean. I measured myself and allowed a couple more inches for comfort and it fits amazingly! Loose enough in to layer under and move my arms freely, and fitted enough to not be baggy or annoyingly in my way and making that gross slippery crinkly rain material noise. I ordered it in white, and it looked exactly like the picture- so pretty I almost didn't want to take it out of the box! Also, it feels amazing on. Even in 94 degree weather and no cloud in the sky, I didn't want to take it off! I look forward to all the adventures and memories I'll embark on wearing my newest Northface Rain Jacket! Definitely worth every penny!

                        I've had the coat for about two weeks and I love it so far! It's very lightweight but can easily be layered with a sweatshirt for extra warmth. The sleeves run a bit long but it's not too big of a deal. It is definitely not water PROOF but does a good job on the famous drizzly WA days.

                            I purchased this jacket to wear in San Francisco for the layering effect. Ended up not needing it because we experienced unusually warm San Fran weather. However, back in Ohio, it's been perfect for the Spring rain. The hood covers my head as needed, overall fit is excellent, I am 5' 5" 36 DDD.

                            The only glitch is that the sleeves are a bit lengthy, so I just tuck them under and go on my way, no big deal.
                            Love the pink, receive many compliments!

                            I was very pleased with my purchase. The sizing chart made me nervous (I normally do not buy online). I am tall (5'9") and thin and it was suggesting an XS. I was worried that the arms/torso would not be long enough. It was PERFECT! The arms are long enough and it sits right at my hips. I can still fit a hoodie under the jacket so it is just snug enough (I like my rain jackets to fit snug). I have worn it several times in rain and have been kept dry. GREAT purchase for one of their less expensive items!

                              I adore this jacket. The color combos are great, the inside peachy color gives it a girly touch. For reference I am 5'4" and weigh 130 (hourglass) and the M fit well with enough room to wear another jacket underneath.

                                Ok so this is a great jacket. I previously had the black venture jacket but it started raining a lot in California so I wanted another. I got this and it's nice because the hood is not directly attached to the jacket if you know what I mean lol and the cuffs are tight. It also has a soft material which is nice because it's also warm. I would recommend this jacket to everyone. I had to get a size bigger compared to my venture jacket. I got the gray color which was nice for a change. Hope you guys find this useful and buy it!

                                    The zipper comes off the track frequently or gets caught in the material and gets stuck. The zippers on the pockets do the same thing as well. One zipper got so stuck, I was not able to get my keys out of my pocket and had to rip the zipper tab off to get my pocket opened.

                                    Compared to my old Colombia Rain Jacket, this one is amazing! I love it! The only thing that is questionable is the velcro which I didn't know would be on it.

                                    This is by far the best jacket I've ever owned. I get at least 2 compliments every time I wear it! The color is so bright, it's so nice. I love the warm inside of it & I absolutely love that it is capable of getting tight at the bottom because I have a short torso. Definitely recommend this jacket to everyone!

                                    I really love this jacket- it not only zips but it has Velcro as well. The sleeves are long and I love how the cuffs keep water out of the sleeves

                                    I bought this in tnf white. Bought an XXL. Had a chance to use it this weekend as it rained all weekend long. Never got wet. When I got inside the building, I just brushed the water right off and went on my way. The outside of the jacket was dry almost instantly. Kept me dry the whole weekend. Wasn't sure if I'd like the elastic on the sleeves and if they'd bother my wrists, but I don't mind them now that I've worn it and it didn't bother me after all. The hood is a bit large and hard to see if you're walking and looking for any oncoming traffic without having to move the hood, but overall I am very happy with this rain jacket and would definitely purchase another one without hesitation.

                                    This jacket was awesome! I went to a concert where it rained the entire time. By the end of the night I was the only one whose rain jacket had kept them dry.

                                    This is built for Seattle weather. Any of you who have visited, or live here understand what I mean by that. Don't hesitate on this coat, it is the perfect light layer, and can be layered with a jacket or polar tech vest underneath quite easily.
