Why We Like The Venture 2 Hooded Jacket

Waterproof, windproof, and well suited for outdoor adventures of all kinds, this jacket delivers the protection you need for camping, climbing, hiking, and of course, waiting out rainy weather in town.

  • Underarm vents open up to cool you down on steep hiking trails
  • Stuffs inside its own hand pocket to easily fit in your pack
  • Adjustable hood, cuffs, and hem seal out the elements
  • Stormflap behind the main zipper keeps out cold winds

Worth it!

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

This is my second time purchasing this jacket! Material is durable. The jacket is packable, lightweight, great ventilation (pit zips). I have a long torso so it fits me true to size. I am still able to wear my Arcteryx Atom LT Hoody underneath and remain comfortable. If you're looking for an outdoor shell THIS IS IT!

Get it!

  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: Medium

6’1, 200, Medium
I purchased the Venture2 for some mountain hiking. This jacket is awesome. There’s enough room for a thermoball jacket and a few other layers underneath. As some have already stated in the reviews, it runs a little big as it’s designed for the purpose of layering. But even without layers, it still fits nicely since there are drawstrings to adjust the waist. It’s packable, lightweight, has great ventilation under the arms, and looks great. If you’re debating what kind of wind/rain shell to get for your outdoor adventures, this is the one. Get it!

Does not perform

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

This jacket is not waterproof and is not breathable. It is not comfortable on bare skin. I expect more from North Face.

Hey William! I am sorry to hear that this jacket did not perform the way it was intended. I would love to help you find a suitable replacement that will work and will be reaching out to you via email shortly to connect.

The North Face Venture

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

I bought my wife one of these jackets back in 2012 now it's October 16, 2020 jacket still looks great I didn't expect for the jacket to last this long but it's still holding strong, they are making me a believer with the lifetime guarantee!!!

no breathability

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

even doing the lightest phisical activity i get soaking wet on whatever beneath the jacket. Vapor cant get out. at all

The North Face Venture 2 Hooded Jacket

    very good, it suits nicely!

    Does not breathe

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

    The ironically named Hy-Vent membrane is the worst membrane for breathability that I have ever used. It is almost feels like a simple polyurethane-coated jacket. I just wore this for fifteen days, mountain hiking in Norway, and it rained fourteen of them- this jacket was clammy and uncomfortable the whole way. In my opinion this is a poseur jacket not a technical rain shell. The arms are also too narrow which makes this problem worse. The pit-zips are not even enough to alleviate this effect.

    Nice Budget Shell

    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: Medium

    I'm 6ft, 175lbs. I initially bought a large and was swimming in it. The medium fits well for my purposes, which is to use as a shell. It's a good budget option (I bought mine for $59 shady blue) providing you with 2.5L, pit-zips, and velcro cuffs. If you aren't looking to layer, you might want to try on a small. As for layering, I can fit a shirt + 1/2 zip long sleeve + a North Face Ventrix (size large) all underneath my medium Venture 2 and still maintain a decent amount of breathability/mobility.

    Nice Budget Shell

    Go Broncos!

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

    A typical NF rain shell. Decent as long as it does not rain too hard for too long. I bought it because it is orange and blue so that now I have a Denver Broncos rain shell. Very roomy.

    really good

      Lightweight and real waterproof

      Lightweight rain shell

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: Runs large
      • Size Bought: medium

      Its a rain shell. I had a TNF Venture jacket from many years ago that fit great and performed well. Eventually the membrane wore off/broke down and it was time to replace the jacket. I like the new one, but a medium is now somewhere between a large and x-large. It's like I'm a kid wearing his dad's jacket. I hate dealing with returns so now I have a big rain shell.

      Great Rain Jacket

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: Runs large
      • Size Bought: Large

      Took this on a canoe fishing trip. We ran into some rain and I stayed dry as a bone. The armpit vents are awesome and the material feels durable. It fits a little big. If you’re a large in other jackets, you might want to bump down a size. I’m 6’1, 190 lbs and this was too big.

      Awesome jacket

        It’s lightweight, stylish, and roomy enough to easily layer underneath, plus it’s got ventilation zippers and multiple sinch points. Great all around!

        North face

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

        Its waterproof, the side vents are nice, and its packable.
        I'm taking a star off cause of the lack of chest pockets.

        Nice jacket!

        • Fit: True to size
        • Size Bought: Large

        Ordered this jacket for backpacking trips and to wear in general. This jacket seems to be of high quality and fits just right. I ordered a large and there's plenty of room to layer underneath. Haven't tried it in the rain or wind yet but I'm sure it will provide for the conditions.

        awesome shell

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times
        • Size Bought: xl

        my first shell. i love it. im 6'4 and got an xl, the sleeves run slightly long, but i don't think it will be any issue when i put a few layers underneath. haven't used it in a heavy rain, but it keeps dry not problem in a drizzle

        Best bang for your buck

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

        This is a great option for anyone looking for a budget-friendly rain jacket. I am very surprised by how well the DryVent membrane holds up to everyday wear and tear. All in all, I am very impressed with this jacket.

        Primary Green jacket image is inaccurate

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

        This seems like a good jacket. However the picture of the primary green jacket in this website is not correct at all, it looks much brighter almost neon which is what I was looking for but when I received it was a much darker medium green. For that reason I’m returning it.

        Primary Green jacket image is inaccurate

        Nice light and dry jacket

        • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
        • Fit: Runs large
        • Size Bought: XL

        I have only used this jacket a couple of times so far, but it is light and dry as advertised. It has bee cool and rainy so I have worn this with a sweater and it still feels a little too large.

        Dig the fit

          The North Face Venture 2 had a good fit. It is large enough to be able to layer over warmer clothes but not so large it feels like I am wearing a tent. It is extremely light weight and can be packed so that it makes a very small footprint. I have not tested it out in the rain. I bought it for an upcoming trip overseas where I had to pack light and be prepared for the elements. The dry vents were a big selling point for me

          How to Measure:
          For best results, take measurements over your underwear.
          Chest:
          Measure under your arms, around the fullest part of your chest.
          Waist:
          Measure around your natural waistline, keeping the tape a bit loose.
          Hip:
          Measure the hip circumference at the fullest part of the seat, keeping the tape horizontal around the body.
          Inseam:
          Using pants that fit well, measure the crotch seam to the bottom of the leg.
          Sleeve Length:
          Measure the distance from the prominent bone at center back neck, across the shoulder, over the bent elbow to the center of the wrist bone.
