The North Face Dryzzle is a reasonably versatile jacket featuring Gore-Tex Paclite for weather resistance. Our testing team loved this fabric for its relatively low weight, excellent breathability, and long-lasting weather resistance. We really liked most features of this jacket and were impressed by the functionality of its hood; however, each tester commented on the same primary downside: the Dryzzle's slightly below average mobility and range of motion. While we wouldn't say it was terrible, we do want to note that the sleeves pulled back from the wrists when we reached up or away at full extension. We experienced a little more bunching than other similar priced models like the Marmot Minimalist, Outdoor Research Foray, and Arc'teryx Beta SL.
While the Dryzzle is no longer offered in the fiery red color that we tested, you can grab it in a variety of new shades, like the Rage Red shown in the photo above.
