Maybe they messed up on the red - the first photo has a white interior (typical from a 2-layer jacket) with velcro tabs, and the 3rd photo has a gray tricot interior (typical 3-layer jacket, which this is supposed to be) without velcro tabs. Hmmm

Seems like if what you want is a very breathable jacket (from the outdoorgearlab review), this is it. If what you want is for it to not wet out (i.e. permanent DWR), this is not it. Theirs started to wet out in under 1 minute.

I have their 'flight' jacket, which is geared more towards running. Great jacket! Super lightweight. But, like said, this isn't for going out in a hurricane with sustained rain for days. This is more like you need to tool around a little bit and the rain is on and off, and you want something that won't make you totally clammy...because it breathes well.

That being said, this is a helluva price for a $250+ jacket.

For $70 it's a steal. If I needed another jacket, I'd hop on it immediately.

I wore the "Flight" version of this jacket during a trail race in probably 50 degrees and absolutely pouring down rain for 2 hours and stayed completely dry. It's breathability is superb.

I have to wonder if North Face is using different "levels" of this technology. They have said they are going to introduce the technology in the higher end products and then eventually down to all of their jackets/shoes. Hard to imagine they are going to use the exact same technology/fabric on a top end $300 running jacket and the $99 one you find at Dick's Sporting Goods that they sell en masse.

Here is a key point to remember: As with MOST waterproof jackets, there is still a DWR layer that will eventually wear off...and you usually won't notice it until it's too late and you're soaked thru...and once this DWR layer is compromised, it's essentially never the same jacket, no matter how many times you re-apply a DWR coating (spray or wash-in). It's the nasty little secret that companies like Gore-Tex don't like to tell you.

If you're looking for an absolutely bomb proof, totally waterproof jacket you will NOT have to reapply DWR coating, you are going to have give up something. In most cases, it's breathability. Now, this doesn't mean sh*t to most people, but if you are doing anything active at all, you're going to want highly breathable if you can get it. Columbia's OutDry fabric and GoreTex's ShakeDry are two examples. Both have that annoying "swishing" sound as you walk and that "look" as if you wearing a trash bag.

I got a friend that can get me something online with a 40% discount retail. I'm a runner and getting into trails. What would you say would be the one to get if I just want one since I live in Los Angeles. I will use it for races so I need waterproof for mandatory bag. So would I get this one or a different one?

Hey sorry, just seeing your reply to me on this one. Are we talking 40% off The North Face or 40% off any of the jackets/fabrics I posted about?

If it's TNF, I'd go with the Flight Futurelight Jacket . They had a nice all black color on the website, but now I only see the blue and black one. Still a great jacket. Fit is true to size, maybe a bit on the slim side. The 40% off makes it a good buy.

If its for the other 2 jackets/fabrics, go with the Shakedry (Arcteryx makes a nice running one..Irunfar(dot)com did a write up on a couple of them if you look it up) as it breathes far better than my Montrail OutDry jacket.

Forget the Venture.. That's crap produced for the masses who want the brand name and don't understand waterproofing ratings and fabrics.

Go with the Flight Futurelight jacket.
