    Rain jacket upgrade

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 6'1"
    • Weight: 180lbs

    After the last jacket I used started leaking water every time it drizzled I decided to upgrade to a new brand. This jacket has fulfilled every expectation (though I haven't had many opportunities to use it yet). It works well in the rain and also works as an excellent windbreaker. Besides all of that it looks great and has a lot of awesome color options. It's also extremely comfortable to move and climb in, even with multiple layers underneath.

    Be sure to pick the correct model!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Firstly, this is an excellent rain jacket. I keep mine bundled on my NF backpack. Love the zippered pits. However, the first one I purchased was a blue one in "heather" finish and it was totally different and heavier that the "regular" one I ended up with. The heather version wasn't bad but is much heavier and didn't breath well. It also had a different material for the water proofing on the inside. Honestly, it seemed more water proof and would be great as a cold weather shell but not summer. The point is that I couldn't believe the difference in the two materials and how they were like 2 totally different jackets. So if you want a light rain jacket, make sure it doesn't have "heather" in the description.

    North Face for life

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

    You cant hand me a North Face product I wont like. I am extremely passionate about their gear and would recommend any item. They are the Haagen Daz of outdoor gear. Aside from the large selection of clothes I have, I also have backpacks and lot of other gear I am using on a continuous basis.

    This jacket fits great and is true to size. I picked this up for the upcoming ski season and my brother took it to FL with him as he was concerned about hurricane season so I will have to get another one. It is light so it offers you the ability to add/remove layers as desired. It packs light and is great for any conditions. I use mine for preseason and spring season ski/boarding. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me.

    Huge Sleeves!

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'11"
    • Weight: 165lbs

    Bought a Medium in this and the sleeves extend to the end of my fingertips. Perhaps I have abnormally short arms, but haven't had issues with any other North Face Mediums so this was surprising. Returning for another option.

    Good all around rain jacket

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'11"
    • Weight: 183lbs

    I have used this a couple times during long drizzle rains while up on top the Mogollon Rim. No issues with the jacket letting water in. I have not had the opportunity to try it in a downpour; but if it's raining that hard, i'd recommend finding shelter somewhere :D. I found the jacket to be a tad snug, not that it reduces the capability or use of the jacket. Just not a lot of room for me to add a bunch of layers. Lightweight, compact/packable, and a great deal!

    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.

    I highly recommend it

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

    It's a great wind breaker, it kept me dry during rainy days and I really like that it breaths very nicely.
    Also, It has plenty of room to move without feeling baggy, the pockets are comfortable as well as the hood.

    Great Jacket

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: XXL
    • Height: 6'0"

    This jacket is well worth the price, nice and dry, and surprisingly warm for being just a shell. Def recommend.


    Decent Jacket for the Price

    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
      • Height: 6'1"
      • Weight: 170lbs

      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
      • Height: 5'9"
      • Weight: 270lbs

      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

      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.

      Solid rain jacket that keeps you dry. Nothing really special here but it truly gets the job done. Fits pretty true to size.
