The North Face Mountain Light Rain Jacket - Men'sis rated4.75out of5by4.
Rated4out of5byFun OutdoorsfromProven Weatherproof ShellLet me first express that I would highly recommend this jacket especially if you are looking for a technical waterproof shell with zip in liner capabilities. North Face makes a variety of down and fleece zip in options and of course you can wear and other insulted liner underneath. Although suitable for casual rainy days there may be better suited light weight rain coat options. I find this jacket is best suited for active outdoor lifestyles, hiking, camping, skiing, etc...
This is my second North Face Mountain Light Jacket with the first lasting 15 years before I retired it. By then the jacket was showing plenty of signs of wear. After 10 years most of the waterproof functionality of the jacket had diminished. It became clammy and heavy in rain. As excited as I am about my new jacket, I am slightly disappointed that the jacket lacks some of features included on the earlier model. This new version specifically lacks pit-zips which vents excess heat and waist cinch cords which better form fits the jacket and assists in powder skirting. I can only assume that these features were cut to reduce the weight of the jacket.
Ideally I'd give this jacket 3.5 stars to the previous model's 4.5 stars but the rating system does not allow for it based on the lack of features. That being said this is still favorite jacket of mine.

Rated5out of5byWes24fromGreat JacketThis jacket is pretty lightweight, looks great, water proof and, paired with a fleece, is very warm. It is worth the extra money to stay dry!

Rated5out of5bycorblifromGreat productThis jacket is lightweight, so it is great for all conditions. I went a size up to be able to wear a fleece underneath to stay warm. Zippers remain water tight after some time in the elements. Can't go wrong with Gore-tex. You get what you pay for!
