Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Jacket Purchased from Great People The folks at REI in Troy Michigan were GREAT! And, the jacket is waterproof, windproof and very warm too if you get a zip in fleece liner to go with it!!! The grey and black color is a good combination.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great buy from a great company I used this Jacket snowboarding and I stayed dry and warm. I also used it on a film shoot in cold weather and it kept the cold air off of me. The only problem with the jacket is the way the hood is attached it allows for wind to seep through on the sides not a problem if you are layered with the North Face fleece hoodie.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from North Face Guide Jacket The jacket does feel a little big on me, but I like that. I purposefully got the jacket big because sometimes I need to layer up, etc. I wanted to make sure this would fit over everything. Looks and feels good. Core zips are very breathable.
