The North Face Venture Jacket - Women's

Classic year-round rainwear constructed with recycled fabrics and designed to withstand wilderness storms.

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.

    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium

    I was in the market for a good rain jacket and bought this one and I love it!
    It is super light weight so you won't feel hot when you wear it (great for any season/climate). Super easy to take with you because you can fold it up and it won't get wrinkled. Also, keeps you dry. Just can't say enough about this jacket.

    I bought this as a gift worried that it wouldn't fit but it was an exact fit. I got the XL fits great. Great mid weather shell, super light weight.

    The Venture is a great jacket! Lightweight and compact for packing. Very versatile. I did size up in case I wanted to layer underneath.

    Does not requires a lot of space

    I bought the Budding Green color and it is not like I expected but I like it, it is thin so is perfect for trips because It doesn't take a lot of space in your luggage. It's perfect for rainy days, I love it!!!

    It can handle the PNW...

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: M

    The title of this review should be enough to sway your decision. You will definitely get the best bang for your buck with this jacket! I've used this jacket as a coxswain rowing crew, at the climbing crag in the dewy Spring time in Utah, and like the title suggests, I've used this jacket in the Pacific North West. This jacket is great for activities when faced with precipitation. It's also great for casual wear when it's misty or rainy out.



    You'll definitely want to use this jacket as a layer since the material is so thin. I typically wear a puffy or fleece underneath on a cold day.



    The fabric is pretty durable and the ultimate fit runs large. I say it runs large because it's a boxy fit, rather than curvy and feminine... because it's a boxy fit- it makes a great layering piece.



    i'm 5'4" and 115lbs ...... 1.6m and 52 kg. for reference.

    I have a size M and I love it because I can wear multiple layers with it.



    underarm vents and adjustable hood are definitely a plus for ventilation! The jacket is fully taped meaning it's sealed really well. The jacket retains heat well too. If the weather decides to change on you while you wear the jacket, you can easily roll it up and pack it away in a small easy to reach place.



    I recommend for any chick who needs a versatile light rain jacket.

    Have fun!

    Perfect Jacket

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

    I bought this jacket a couple years ago to bring with while studying abroad in Europe. I wore a cheap fleece under it until we hit warmer countries and it was the perfect combo! This jacket has zippers for ventilation that came in handy while hauling our 45 lbs backpacks without having to unload the bags to cool off. I wore this jacket EVERYDAY for three months.. (except the one day it actually down poured). I still wear it regularly and absolutely love it!

    Perfect Jacket

    North Face Venture Jacket

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: True to size

    I returned this jacket, I wasn't at all impressed with it. It was super thin and felt really weird.

    No Frills, Just Quality

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

    I knew I wanted a Northface for a long time, and finally went for it. No regrets! It has a simple, straightforward design and actually works. I coach high school soccer and will be wearing this for all those rainy 80-minute matches!

    Good in the rain

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

    I bought this as a gift for my niece in New England. She told me that she loves it and it is very versatile. Great for long hikes.

    Rain won’t hold me back

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

    This was for my sister. She says, "This is a mid-weight sturdy rain jacket. It does not fold up tiny like some jackets but I can see that this one will last a long time. The hood has an elastic on the brow that keeps it easily on your head. The underarm vents are great. Pockets are a good size and has deep interior pockets to keep your phone dry. The size medium is perfect for layering a fleece underneath and has just enough length to keep your bottom dry too. Comfortable, functional and fashionable."

    great jacket boxy, binds at hips

    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: M

    was disappointed by the boxy shape -- wide at waist, then hit awkwardly & tight at hips. i'm a small but went with medium -- I recommend sizing up 1 from your normal size if you plan to be able to wear another slightly bulky layer, like TNF osito or packable down jacket under this, which is why I got M. the small was too snug for mobility with the extra layer.

    if you can get this at a killer deal, totally worth it. this is a great lightweight packable jacket with pit zips to get the job done keeping you dry and not overheating. however, if the price is the same as the marmot precip, i went with that instead for the following reasons: a more fitted hourglass silhouette, longer coverage not binding at the waist, fast elastic adjusters instead of velcro, and most of all, the ability to fold down and stow away the hood (you're stuck with the hood flopping on the venture.) the precip is also slightly less 'whooshy' fabric than the venture.

    A+ jacket

      I got this as a gift for my girlfriend and she loves it. It fits great, very comfortable and lightweight. Awesome jacket!

      Great Lightweight Jacket

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

      I am 5'0", about 135 lbs and purchased an XS. It fits great. It's a little tight around the hips and doesn't cinch in at the waist, which is something that I like. I just took it for it's first test drive at Yellowstone National Park. It held up great in the storms and cold weather. Although it's no softshell, It was about 32 degrees at the top of Mt. Washburn and the jacket kept the rain, fog, and wind out. I love the under arm vents which let's you breathe a bit on a strenuous hike. Overall, it's a great lightweight jacket.

      Cute and dry

      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: x small

      Great Rain shell. Cute style. Love how small it packs. Kept me dry hiking in Montana. Also love the arm vents for when you get hot but want to stay dry. Thanks North Face.
