The North Face Darkwind Shell jacket for men is two-faced, but we mean that in a good way. Wind-resistant front and highly breathable back work to promote comfort when climbing with a pack.

  • Tightly woven recycled polyester with a Durable Water Repellent finish blocks wind and sheds water
  • TNF® Apex Aerobic fabric on back promotes breathability in the areas a pack normally covers; additional DWR finish fends off rain when worn alone
  • 2 zippered front pockets secure small essentials and sit high on torso for pack and harness compatibility
  • The North Face Darkwind Shell jacket features a hidden cinch cord accessed via the pockets for a snug, personalized fit

The North Face Darkwind Shell Jacket - Men'sis rated4.75out of5by4.
Rated5out of5byfromExcellent companionI am 6'0 and 240 and purchased the xxl size of this jacket for use on a work trip to an Indian reservation in South Dakota. The conditions in SD can be extreme at times with little warning of rapid change. We encountered high winds( 60 mph ) and horizontal rain and this jacket performed admirably, protecting me well and offering some degree of comfort in tough conditions.

Rated5out of5byfromGood jacket for cool summer nightsThis is a perfect jacket for my morning trail runs. it sheds away minor moisture from the tree leaves. I use during cool nights like low 60s or high 50's for casual too. Extremely lightwieght and easy to carry. The only drawback is that the front gets wrinkles easily. Need to hang it in the car.

Rated5out of5byfromvery good outer layer/exercise jacketThis is a very good garment. Light weight so not warm, but very good as an outer layer. Good quality fabric/zippers/etc. Highly recommended for a practical light jacket/cover.

Rated4out of5byfromSleeves should breathe as well.The garment breathes only through the back. It works well for sports that you're going forward in, particularly cycling. However, I which they integrated an inch or two of breathable fabric in the sleeves-- this is why it's a 4, not a 5. Amazing jacket nonetheless.
