Tired of getting cold & soaked?
With this superior jacket on your back, you'll stay dry and warm, even if you find yourself in the middle of monsoon season in Shillong, India. Trust us, it rains a lot there. Even if you're not a guide, you'll enjoy the waterproof protection of this Men's Varius Guide Jacket from The North Face. It's a versatile technical hard shell that works well for camping, traveling and conducting field research. The Varius Guide Jacket is seam sealed and breathable, but it doesn't have a fleece lining or insulation. This makes it ideal for mild temperates and tropical climates where rain falls in dense, shimmering sheets of precipitation. The fully adjustable--and removable--hood extends upward to protect your lower face from wind and water. Pit-zip vents beneath the sleeves allow you to increase the airflow inside this jacket without soaking your clothing. An internal zippered security pocket keeps important documents and small electronics secure and out of the elements. If you need to add in additional clothing layers, The Men's Varius Guide Jacket is fully Zip-in compatible with identically-sized fleece insulation pieces made by The North Face.
The North Face Varius Guide Jacket for Men is a waterproof, breathable and fully seam sealed HyVent shell. Packed with features but not lacking style, this jacket is comfortable and compatible with any of the North Face's zip-in layering pieces.
Weather mountain storms in The North Face's waterproof, breathable Varius Guide Jacket, a sturdy, seam-sealed shell that helps you deal in bad weather. This jacket's arsenal of weather protection includes HyVent fabric to shed precipitation while allowing interior moisture to evaporate and a fully adjustable hood, pocket and front zip storm flaps, and wind cuffs.

I bought this jacket so I could zip in a TNF Nuptse 2 jacket. I zipped the two together, and it's a really warm setup. The Varius guide jacket stops wind amazingly, and the Nuptse2 keeps me really warm. The only problem I've had with the jacket-- a couple of the threads have come loose. Sending it to TNF to get it repaired after the cold season's over! Definitely a good jacket to keep the wind off of you, but if you're looking to get warm, definitely zip in a Nuptse 2 or another zip-in compatible jacket .
I have the Guide Jacket and Guide Pants from 2007. They are awesome products! I have worn them both many times and wear the jacket with out a liner as a windbreaker both Spring and Fall. When the weather gets cold I just layer up.
The heavier material of the Guide series along with the ripstop panels make the product even more durable.
Its what I grab whether I'm snow shoeing, hiking in cool weather, or going to fall Soccer or Football game!
The Varius Guide works well in all types of weather. It keeps me dry in a down-pour, warm in freezing temperatures(I should mention that I use a soft shell to zip inside it for really cold days), and comfortable in windy conditions. Not to mention it looks great on me.
Though this jacket was fairly warm, the zippers break really easily. I had to return mine as it didn't live up to the hype. I am an avid skier and climber and this just didn't make the grade. Luckily, The North Face and Backcountry are rad and let me replace it with something better.
