Chances are many of the jackets in your closet boast some level of “water resistance.” But if you rely on that half-hearted qualifier when the first real downpour of the season hits, you’ll end up somewhere between disheveled and wet dog.
That’s why there’s the North Face Resolve 2: a fully waterproof hooded jacket that offers up backwoods-ready design done up in variety of colors, because those running to downtown meetings need something more staid than neon. And right now, last season’s colors are discounted up to 35% on Backcountry.
Need a rain jacket for the office and coaching your kid’s team on the weekends? Pick it up in shady blue. Need a high-visibility layer for solo hikes? The blinding lime green will stand you out. Either way, the Resolve 2’s number-one priority is keeping you dry, achieving that goal with a 25 PSI waterproof-rated, seam-sealed DryVent shell. Oh, and the breathable mesh lining will keep you dry on the inside, too.
Less than $60 for one of the best rain jackets out there? That’s a small price to pay for not having to towel yourself off with a handkerchief in the office entryway. And if none of the colors are up your alley, throw in a couple bucks more and you can pick it up in the less conspicuous asphalt grey or urban navy.
