Fire season recently wrapped up here (thank goodness), and we literally went from scorching hot temperatures to cool and rainy weather. As someone who is rarely prepared for anything, I found myself without a rain jacket or an umbrella for that matter.
I decided to ask around the office to see if anyone had any good recommendations and the general consensus seemed to be that North Face made the best and most affordable rain jacket out there. This caught me by surprise, actually, as their stuff is usually pretty pricey.
That said, I decided to go with The North Face Men’s Resolve 2 Jacket and I have been extremely happy with the purchase.
Here are a few things about the coat that I really enjoy so far:
The Price: Starts at $89.95 (Get the Best Deal Here)
Of all of the premium brand jackets out there, this was by the most affordable that I was able to find. My friend suggested getting it on Backcountry.com, so I checked them out first. While their prices seemed on par with others that I have seen, they were out of my size in the color I wanted, so I decided to head over to Amazon – my go-to for pretty much everything!
Amazon had a huge selection of colors, and plenty of sizes, so I bought my jacket there for $89.95, plus it included free Prime 2-day shipping. Head here to see their huge selection of Resolve 2 jackets.
My biggest need for buying a rain jacket was to avoid getting wet (duh) – the Resolve 2 definitely repels water, and leaves your clothes and hair dry, which is exactly what I was looking for, so mission accomplished there! It may be hard to see in the pic above, but it happened to rain the first day I had the chance to wear my new jacket, and I tried capturing a photo of the rain beading up as it hit my sleeve.
In typical North Face fashion, this is a great looking jacket. There are more than 20 different colors to choose from on Amazon, so it should jive with most styles too. In my younger days I would have probably gone with the brilliant blue, but now that I’m a dad I went with a tamer color – Monument Grey/Asphalt Grey. I figured the color
So far, I have honestly been hard pressed to find any cons with the Resolve 2. It meets all of the criteria I was looking for with a rain jacket, and it was super affordable, so I really don’t have any complaints. The only thing that might be worth pointing out is that it lined with netting, so if you happen to live in a colder climate like I do, then you may need to layer up to stay warm.
The North Face Resolve 2 Rain Jacket is the perfect choice for anyone looking for an effective and affordable option for keeping the rain off you. It looks great, costs less than $90, and is made by one of the most well-respected outdoor companies in the world.
It’s available from a number 0f different retailers, but Amazon had the best deal and largest selection of colors that I could find. Follow the link below to lock in the best deal:
