Yes, I am small enough to shop in the kids section sometimes. Today, I have for you the North Face Resolve Jacket for Big Girls.

This jacket has been my daily driver for almost an entire year now. It’s great for breezy days on the trail, light rain and moisture, protection from prickly trees and bushes, or even splashes from kayaking.

The material is North Face’s Hyvent which is slightly older technology as I think they’re on Hyvent 2L now. The jacket is fully seam taped, waterproof-y and breathable. For a 5′, 100lb~ person, the XL is roomy enough to layer a hoodie underneath for cooler days and commutes. The sleeves do run a little short though. But then again, I prefer my sleeves on the longer side of things.

It’s lightweight-ish at 12.7 oz and can pack down well into small places.

The differences between the kid version and the adult version:

  • spot to write your name in case you lose your jacket at school
  • non-adjustable hood
  • no cinch cord for the hem

The only con is there are no pit zips, but the adult version doesn’t have them either. If you’re not willing to sacrifice pit zips, you may be better off with the North Face Venture jacket, reviewed previously here.

The kids’ XL is fairly comparable to the women’s XS, except the arms and torso are just a bit wider. If you don’t mind the non-cinchable hem and the non-adjustable hood, The North Face Girls’ Resolve Jacket will set you back $65 compared to $90 for the women’s version.

Great article!  I totally agree with your evaluation.  Being in the communication field for over 30 years, it is imperative that we not only have the marketing communication, PR, IR skills and then social media skills across all platforms, but now all the research and SEO skills.  The only thing I wanted to mention is that sometimes corporations don’t want to pay for all the hands-on experience it takes to be successful in this endeavor….but it IS fun!
