    Fits great!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    This jacket for the price point is great! I've used it two years in a row sheep hunting and it keeps the water off when needed. It's very durable as well. It's not the best for hiking in as it does not breathe too well. But if you need to cover up when you're laying low or glassing in the rain, it's perfect.

    Decent Jacket for the Price

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    I bought the original Venture Jacket in 2010 and had to finally retire it. It held up fairly well until earlier this year due to 2 reasons: it started very easily wetting out and the inner layer started peeling off. It did get clammy quite often but that will happen with almost any jacket. I often used it as part of a layering system when I would go snowboarding and it held it's own. If you're working on a budget, this could be an option for you but don't expect a fully bombproof jacket.

    not quite as dry ...

      Bought ours in 2013 and living in Florida we don't use them that often. Nice for a short walk during a warm drizzle but noticed when walking in the rain for a while the jacket does not stay dry inside at all ...
      Pitty...

      Perfect Jacket

      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
      • Fit: True to size

      Bought this jacket for my brother as a birthday gift. He was looking for simple, breathable, light weight rain jacket. I looked into a few options, but have always heard great things about the Venture 2.

      He was excited to receive and it used on a hike he did in Southern California soon after. It can get super muggy down there, especially when it rains. This jacket was great, especially because of its breathability through the underarms.

      Definitely recommended!

      Cuba tested

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Large

      I recently took this to Havana 2 days after I bought it (after I saw the weather report). 2 days in we got caught in a downpour from a the main ocean front walkway to our apartment.

      It was perfect in that environment, especially with the "pit zippers" since it was still humid and warm.

      It fits true to size and has a classic look, IMO.

      Good light jacket

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

      I was looking for a replacement jacket that would work as a shell, have a hood, repel rain, and have pit vents for added ventilation. This jacket does all those things and for less than $60. I've worn it in all conditions: showers to heavy rains and remained dry. The hood is well designed and I have not had any rain drip on my glasses. The XXL size is large enough for a fat, round guy like me to wear a T-shirt and hoodie underneath and still be able to zip it up. The zipper is excellent. This jacket is so light. I was worried the jacket would not feel good against my skin since it does not have a mesh liner, but I didn't notice any discomfort against my arms. It blocks wind as well as rain. It does not offer any warmth on a cold day though so wear that extra layer. Thanks, Backcountry, for carrying larger sizes so a guy like me can still wear performance garments.

      Nice jacket, Great price

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

      Got this thing on sale to replace a similar jacket I had stolen. Fits nice, standard NF quality...Got here in less then a day. There is nothing better than a good quality rain jacket that will stand up to the elements.

      Very Good Rain Jacket

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

      This is a great rain jacket for the value. This jacket can handle anything thrown at it and still outperforms the more expensive ones. I have use it together with my Thermoball jacket for those colder days and also have used it by itself in pouring rain. I would highly recommend this jacket to everyone who is looking for a high quality rain jacket or outer shell. It will never disappoint even in the harshest of weather.

      Good rain jacket

      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Medium

      So the jacket I got was the black with grey top section, only complaint is that the grey is not actually as light as it appears in the picture, in person the difference between the black and grey is hardly noticeable. (Kinda bummed) but otherwise it's a great jacket, keeps me dry, but isn't mwant for keeping you super warm. Toss a hoodie underneath if you need to be warm AND dry.

      Super Roomy Jacket

      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
      • Fit: True to size

      Bought this for my dad and he plays in the rain everyday now. He's a big guy, and the XXL fit him with room to spare, which is great for putting on some layers underneath.

      Great Lightweight Raincoat

      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Medium

      Got this jacket for my son for Christmas to bring away to school next fall - very well made, lightweight raincoat. Love the style and fabric. He hasn't worn it out in the rain as of yet but looks like it will do the trick on those rainy days.

      Nothing Beats The Value

        For the price, this shell is king. Waterproof, breathable, with a covered zipper, great storage space, armpit vents and an internal pocket; what else could you need? Just an awesome value, and the shell I use alone in rain, or as my outer coating in the winter.

        It was perfect!

        • Fit: True to size

        I purchased this as a birthday present for my boyfriend. He was quite pleased with it. It was the perfect weight and fit for his needs. Not too sporty. A nice classic looking windbreaker.
