Andrew M.wrote a review of The North Face Venture 2 1/2-Zip Pant - Men's on April 26, 2016
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
I bought these pants to go along with a North Face Summit Series rain coat. They're lite, but not ultra lite. By that I mean they have a durable feel to them. They compress into its own hand pocket. I have a few sets of rain gear and a problem I kept having was the waterproof coating would stick to itself and eventually rip/degrade. I have had these north face pants now compressed in my EDC pack for months with no signs of wear or degrading of the fabric. I've also used them several times for hiking/bushcraft, they also have worked great as lite weight snow pants! I have seen the grey version, I regret not getting those over black! Although I'm very happy with my purchase!
