Description

The North Face Venture Jacket keeps you dry and comfortable without draining your wallet.

The North Face Venture Jacket is a lightweight, waterproof breathable jacket great for trekking and travel use. Keep the Venture Jacket in your pack or suitcase and you'll be ready for an unexpected downpour. Despite being lightweight, the HyVent DT fabric is tough enough to stand up to everyday use. HyVent DT is a highly breathable, waterproof fabric with a raised microdot inner surface that acts to lift the shell fabric away from your skin. This provides a comfortable, soft, easy-sliding feel while maximizing moisture transport away from your skin. The result: you stay drier and warmer. This combination of waterproofing and breathability makes the Venture ideal for keeping the elements out. *Please note: TNF outerwear tends to run a size larger than you might normally wear. Please consult the sizing chart to determine your proper TNF size.

A rainjacket a teenage girl will actually wear.

I ordered this jacket for my 16 year old daughter who would not be caught dead in a rain jacket even if she was in a monsoon. I figured it's by North Face, which is the tradiional garb of her tribe, and it sort of looks like a hoodie, which is the other acceptable form of body covering. Amazingly, she loved it and actually wears it IN THE RAIN. So in addition to be lightweight, sturdy, packable and functional, it passes the cool test with teenage girls. This is a win-win. Great jacket.

Hi, I'm considering purchasing the TNF Venture jacket but wondering if you stock something even lighter and cooler again? I'm looking for something suitable for summer mountain hiking in Ireland where unfortunately we get our highest rainfall in July & August when temperatures are 15-20C (60-70F). So I need something waterproof & breathable but ultra-lightweight to keep rain out but avoid adding to the heat. Thanks & looking fwd to any tips you have.

This should work out great for you. It is light weight and breathable. It has vents under the arms to help keep you cooled off as well. The water proofing they use works very well too. Water just beads up and falls off.

Where does this jacket fall on the body? about the hip or a little lower?

They are cut a little long to add extra protection from the rain. This is a great jacket!

I want a jacketlike TNF Venture Jacket - waterproof and packable. I DO NOT want velcro under the front flap or anywhere on the jacket. I wear a lot of wool scarves and they leave thread in velcro and look disgusting after a few wears. Does this jacket have velcro?

Responded on

Yes it does. All the way down the front storm flap.

Hi Rosemary this jacket has velcro down the front and at the cuffs. Check out the Leonidas Jacket it doesn't have any velcro down the front. Hope that helps.

I'm 5'3" and about 150lbs. I really want to get this jacket or the Resolve jacket but not sure which one. I also don't know which size to get. My roommate has this jacket in a Medium and it fits well, even with a sweatshirt underneath. I'm just not totally sure. Help?!

Responded on

Well, the nice thing about the venture is that it has pit zips...when its raining and sticky out, these are AMAZING!! If money is an issue though, id say go with the resolve, the pit zips are really the only difference between these two, and the resolve is 15% off right now. And as far as size goes...if the Medium fits, itll fit with either jacket, so go with a Medium.

UK TESTED

Prior to my wife's trip to the UK she debated heavily on what rain jacket to get. She has been extremely pleased with her decision to purchase the Venture. Absolutely waterproof, light weight, and compact, you couldn't ask for much more. But there is more the HyVent material has excellent breathability so you stay drier and warmer thatn with other jackets.

jacket is great, my daughter loves it too, should have bought two of them!

Great jacket!

As soon as it came in the mail, it rained the next few days, so I was excited about trying it out. It was great, repelled the rain and kept me dry! I also tried it out with my North Face fleece underneath, which unfortunately makes its a little tight...but did keep me cozy warm. By itself, its a great jacket, but with a fleece underneath it might be a little small.

Love this jacket too!

This jacket is awesome. I was looking for a lightweight windbreaker style jacket...PERFECT. I like that the sleeves are long enough (even in a smaller size) to reach out and they don't pull up. Jacket has enough room for layers without being bulky. I purchased the LCD green--by far the coolest color, bright and fun.

What does TNF stand for? It is only connected with the color black. Is it extra long?

so i am interested in getting the womens northface venture jacket. i seen that they are on sale for $69.27. the colors and sizes are all marked as $98.95. which color and size jacket is on sale?? it looks like false advertisement to me!

Responded on

The LCD green in L is the only one marked down, probably because it is the last of last season's colors (on sale) left. See bottom of drop down menu.

super functional

For reference, 5'1" 95lb, boyish build. I got the Venture in XS Black and it's my go-to jacket for running, hiking, errands, school, storms, trail restoration projects...anything, really. I don't use an umbrella anymore b/c the bill of the hood keeps my face dry. As expected, sleeves are a bit long and it's a little roomy but not unsightly! (Thanks to the shorter overall length. I look like I'm wearing a trash bag in other rain jackets.) I can wear a couple long sleeve shirts, my TNF fleece, and Apex Bionic under the Venture and still move around swimmingly.
