Description

Shelter from the storm.

The North Face Men's Venture Jacket uses recycled nylon ripstop instead of conventional petroleum-based materials, earning it an Editors' Choice Green Award from Backpacker Magazine. Waterproof and breathable, the jacket's HyVent (2.5-layer) membrane blocks outside moisture while allowing built-up perspiration to evaporate.

A fully adjustable hood closes tightly to combat fierce winds and driving rain. The brushed chin guard lining gives a soft and scratch-free feel when the jacket is fully zipped. For convenient storage, this jacket easily folds into its hand pocket for portability when hiking, climbing, and backpacking.

Great fall-winter-spring Shell

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

Got both the Venture and Resolve jackets and decided to keep the Venture, mainly because of its softer feel to it than the resolve which had a more plasticy feel. I have been wearing this in the canadian winter with just a mid layer. It sheds snow/water and seems to breath well also. I use my event shells for stenuous hiking/backpacking activities. Venture is great for all other light outdoor activity as a shell.

I purchased this jacket in December 2012 and it has kept me dry for most of the two years. However, I wore it for hours in a heavy rain and my clothing underneath was very wet. Does waterproof mean it should be waterproof even under the conditions I described?

Unless you were totally soaked, it may have been condensation from your body heat and if it was humid. This happened to me on a big hiking trip and i freaked out because it was supposed to rain a lot. Wearing a long sleeve shirt or a light soft shell will normally produce less condensation.. Hope this helps!!!( I am a Boy Scout who has a lot of experience with this stuff :) )

Thanks for posting the picture. I have had the jacket for a year and did not figure out how to pack my jacket into the pocket. The little "stow" tab in the picture helped me finally figure it out!

Great Fall-Winter Rain Jacket

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

If you are looking for a nice fall/winter rain jacket this would be a great starting point. I bought this jacket because I was hiking Mt. Washington along the presidential range in NH, and I knew that weather was going to be erratic (It ended up being beautiful). But I did use this jacket in the early morning hours capturing the sunrise with my SLR. Great wind resistance, and the hood has a great design that wouldn't fly off when a big gust of wind rolls by, it is very sturdy when using the hood. On this particular jacket, the sleeves run long on my arms, I really dont mind when it comes to that because I would rather have extra length and added protection then having short sleeve length and water getting in.

I bought the Heather gray because I liked the style for city-use (it looks stylish) as well as my go to hiking rain jacket.

We both love this jacket. I am constantly using it on rainy walks to and from my studio and during the spring my husband fishes, bikes and runs in it. Love it!

Awesome Rain Jacket

Waterproofing on this jacket is very durable and really breathable - it performs like a more expensive jacket and has kept me dry in heavy rain without any issues. Stow pocket is great for travel/backpacking and the fabric is light but durable enough to take some abuse. Love it.
