She loves it! Moab can be a rainy mess this time of year, and the Venture proved to keep the water at bay when she needed it most. Seems like the fit is pretty good, Albeit leaving a good amount of room for layering. Heathered Red was a shade on the pink side, but not bad at all.

This jacket would make a great rain jacket. I prefer a less "crunchy" jacket though. I don't like to hear my jacket every time I move. It is very light weight but not sure how many seasons it would last because of the material but I know nothing about rain coats. I ended up returning it for a softer shell, more versatile jacket. The color "collar blue" is a beautiful color! Just like the picture.

What did you end up going with?

I gave this to my sister for Christmas and now I'm the favorite sibling. She loves the color and weight of the jacket. Living in California's Central Valley, she doesn't need heavy outerwear so this is perfect for the chilly, foggy mornings and occasional drizzle. She has a long torso and appreciates that the jacket actually comes down to about mid-hip which means no plumber's crack when playing with her kiddos!

great

    Great lightweight rain jacked - flattering cut and true to size

    Perfect Rain Jacket!

    I purchased this as a xmas gift for my mom and she loves it. She purchased this same raincoat a number of years ago and she was sad to see that it had started to delaminate on the collar with year of regular use. It was on her Christmas list so I decided to track it down. The cut is really nice and TNF has actually tailored the style a little more to make it less boxy than it was a number of years ago. It is small and compact when folded for travel, light weight, functional, offers ventilation under the arms, and overall a great rain jacket for winter or summer use.

    Great Rain Jacket!

    This jacket it truly 100% waterproof. Light weight makes layering easy. Great value, too!

    Beautiful NF Rain Coat

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: XL

    The color of this jacket is just like on the website, vibrate color. XL fits a little too big but for women with slight shapely this size would work. Only thing I didn’t like about this jacket is it feels too thin (even for a rain jacket).

    Awesome coat

    I bought this jacket for my daughter . This jacket has tremendous value and many uses. She absolutely loves it and wears it every day as a raincoat, windstop, and even wears under layers with it in colder temperatures.

    great buy

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I love this jacket! It's perfect for keeping dry and protected! it is a little thinner than it appears - easy to layer with though! The hood, adjustable wrists, and the ability it has to fit into its pocket are all great features that really add to the jacket. Fit true to size for me and I love the way that it looks.

    Perfect jacket for surprise storms!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    We got this jacket to bring to europe with us knowing we would be running into a lot of little surprise rain storms this fall. It does a great job keeping you dry and when the clouds part & the sun comes back out its easy to pack away in your bag until the next shower. i have found the fit is on point with north face fleece's/parka's

    Will keep you dry

    Purchased this jacket specifically for hiking/traveling in the rain, due to a recent trip to Norway, where it rains a lot. After a 12 hour hike mostly in the rain, was still completely dry. Pit zips came in handy on the hike and hood is easy to adjust. Also brought it to Iceland and it rained pretty much everyday there too, and again worked great. For the price I think it is a very good value. Haven't washed it a ton yet, so can't comment on durability. Has no insulation, but it is meant to be a rain shell, so as expected. Of note, the different colors seem to have different materials lining them. The heather grey lining felt stiff and kind of rubbery and the provincial blue was more flexible and soft inside.

    Gift for Mom

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

    I bought this for my mom and she loves it. She is 5'3" and 105 lbs and the Small fits perfect.

    Nice

    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: XXL

    Love the look of the jacket and the color. I would have given 5 stars if it had a fabric lining and a 2 way zipper. The waterproofing has a rubbery clammy feeling on bare arms.

    Love the color

    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: xxl

    Purchased for an upcoming trip that may require water proof jacket. As with most Northface jackets they are too fitted requiring going up a size, it lacks a 2 way zipper and the lack of a fabric lining make the jacket hot and sticky on bare arms. I love the color and outer finish of the jacket and it would have received 5 stars if it had a 2 way zipper and a fabric lining. Guess I will always need long sleves under this jacket to keep away from rubbery feeling of the inside.

    Good Top Layer

      Great jacket for mid range temperatures. Blocks wind and rain nicely. Order a size up so another layer can fit underneath if you plan to wear it in temperatures less than 40 degrees.

      Not as thick as it looks

      We got this at the beginning of winter and it is thinner than the picture shows so it didn't work too well in a Utah winter. Good for Fall and Spring though

      Perfect for rainy days

      I bought this jacket for my wife here are her comments: This jacket is high quality, lightweight and incredibly comfortable. I bought this jacket to keep me dry Costa Rica only have two seasons rainy and summer. Fits great. The color is gorgeous bright and cheerful. I was very pleased with some of the jackets features like, the adjustable hood, Velcro close cuffs and the little bit of added length in the rear.

      Definitely a keeper!

      I bougth for my wife here is her review: This was a great buy. It keeps me dry and I like to wear it for my morning run, protects me from the wind. It’s pretty light weight! Also I have it my car for those rainy days. It fits perfect.

      Good but now a keeper

      I bought this jacket and the Burton Berkley Jacket knowing that i would return one of them. Both are great jackets. Neither are exactly what i wanted (i was looking for something just a little heavier). In the end, I went with the Burton jacket because it was a little more comfy. This jacket is more waterproof which also means a little more stiff. In the end, it was a tough call. The fit was great. The color was great. If you are looking for a rain jacket, I think this would be a great choice. The sizing was great. I bought a small and still had plenty of room for a sweatshirt.
