The North Face Venture Jacket -

When black clouds descend from above the canyon, reach into your backpack for The North Face Women's Venture Jacket. The waterproof, breathable HyVent 2.5-layer membrane and fully taped seams easily shed water and keep you bone-dry while you make your way back to camp. Constructed with 100% recycled nylon ripstop fabric, the Venture gives you eco-friendly vibes while you endure pelting rain or sleet. Underarm vents ditch excess heat, a fully adjustable hood with hidden drawcord system shields your head and face from the elements, and the brushed chin-guard lining offers comfort when you zip all the way up. The Venture's adjustable hook-and-loop cuffs, hem cinch-cord, and center-front zip and hook-and-loop closure seal out wet weather so you stay dry even during heavy rain cycles. Two zippered hand pockets stash your lip balm, cell, or energy goo, and the entire jacket stows in one of the hand pockets when the sun comes out.

Rocky Mountain Trail (Fall 2013)

Engineered to withstand severe rainstorms and styled for everyday use.
This lightweight, waterproof jacket is a staple for every outdoor enthusiast. Featuring an attached, fully adjustable hood with visor, pit-zips, and a hem cinch-cord, you'll stay dry hour after wet hour with this durable rain jacket. Engineered with HyVent® DT EC, a new material derived from natural castor oil from beans, this eco-friendly jacket reduces the use of synthetic membrane components by 50% compared to traditional waterproof materials.
HyVent DT: This waterproof fabric is lightweight, packable, and more breathable than other unlined treated fabrics. HyVent DT is created by applying a polyurethane (PU) coating with a DT print matrix which acts as a dry-touch, half-layer coating. The DT half layer adds durability and comfort by physically separating the HyVent DT PU coating from the skin. HyVent DT eliminates the need for a liner and is commonly referred to as a 2.5-layer fabric.

Classic, year-round rainwear constructed with recycled HyVent 2.5L, this jacket is engineered to withstand wilderness storms and is styled for everyday use.

Northface pleases again

The jacket is just as described, lightweight, comfortable and has all the features you would expect from a quality rain jacket. I got it in the grey rise color and it looks like it will match anything I wear. The color is subdued which I like. It runs slightly large. I am between a small and a medium and the small is roomy enough. I think the the price of the jacket is fitting for its qualities
Thev at The North Face on 02/06/2014
I'm in love with this jacket! I wear it over my other ones to protect them from rain and to keep me dry. I'll also wear it by itself when it gets warmer. It's just so cool and stylish and wonderful in every way.
Katie - customer at on 02/08/2013
I love this jacket from the color to the fit! I've gotten so many compliments. It works well in the rain and still keeps you cool. The only problem is the velcro gets caught on stuff because it's not hidden.

The jacket is nice but they are too expensive. I would recommend to a friend but I would also warn them how expensive these products are.

EXCELLENT! Wonderful for all types of weather. Absolutely waterproof and so far has proven to be quite stain resistant as well.
TADPOLE at The North Face on 01/22/2014
Great jacket but wrong size. I need to print return receipt label and mail back for one size bigger.
Gorms at The North Face on 01/23/2014
Love, love, love this jacket! Comfy, lightweight, easy to clean. Would recommend to anyone!

The perfect spring time jacket

Rally lightweight! Great material, fits well!

Negative Reviews:

Great jacket...until a few years pass and the polyurethane coating inside begins to disintegrate. I bought this jacket six years ago for the summer rainy season in Puerto Vallarta and it was great for a season or two. Now it is an embarrassment with the tiny specks of white from the coating flying around like dandruff sticking to my skin and clothing. I would not get this unless I was assured that this problem with the polyurethane coating was fixed.

Not warm at all

The jacket looks nice and warm from online but I personally think the material isn't warm at all and it's a lot thinner than it appears
Elita at The North Face on 01/23/2014


not what I expected and for the price it was a bummer to receive. especially since it was for my mom.
kiaceline at The North Face on 01/23/2014

Not impressed

To be very honest...I like the color of the jacket but thats about it. It wasnt what I expected it to be. It is VERY light. It has absolutely no lining and I thought it would. Its a very cute jacket but a lot lighter than I expected for an $100 jacket.
Marisol at The North Face on 02/12/2014

expensive for what you get

nice rain coat, but that's all it is. No liner or durability for 100.00$
