The North Face Venture jacket is light and compressible, engineered to withstand severe rain, and styled for everyday use. Venture out and explore, no matter what Mother Nature has in store.

  • The Venture jacket is a staple that every outdoor enthusiast will appreciate
  • HyVent® EC 2.5-layer substitutes natural (bean-derived) castor oil for 50% of the petroleum-based materials previously used in the manufacturing process
  • HyVent EC maintains excellent waterproof, breathable performance; it's ideal for spring skiing and snowboarding, as well as urban and city hiking
  • HyVent is lightweight and packable, moves easily over layers and is more breathable than unlined, treated fabrics
  • All seams are sealed for complete protection
  • Fully adjustable brimmed hood protects your head from precipitation and allows good visibility; soft lining guards chin against abrasion
  • Rip-and-stick stormflap prevents weather penetration through the full-length front zipper
  • Pit zippers allow cooling airflow as your activity heats up
  • Hem drawcord and elastic cuffs with rip-and-stick closures seal out the weather
  • Zip hand pockets; jacket stows in left pocket
  • The North Face Venture has a regular cut for easy layering; slightly long length enhances protection

The North Face Venture Jacket - Women'sis rated4.3333out of5by27.
Rated5out of5byfromGreat jacket!I run a walking group and needed a lightweight windbreaker I could wear over a couple shirts to wear in light rain and cooler weather. This works well and even in a heavy rain with moderate wind, I was comfortable.

Rated5out of5byfromLove The North Face Venture JacketI'm training to do El Camino and this is one of the first things I bought. I'm very happy with it. Have walked almost 15 miles the other day and when I felt a little hot, I just open the zipper that are under the arm and from there on it was comfortable. Now I want to try it in the rain...waiting for the rain...

Rated5out of5byfromAwesome for Active WearGreat waterproof shell. Layers well [but buy a size big if you want to add more than one or two light layers]. I use it for crew practice a lot.

Rated4out of5byfromNorth Face Guarantee is RealI really like and use this jacket. It's great in wet weather and super light to carry in your backpack as a layer. North Face provides a lifetime guarantee and stands by their word. The inner liner began peeling and they stood behind their product. The REI guy wasn't very nice about it but North Face told me I could also bring it to their store - I didn't want to wait to use the jacket.

Rated5out of5byfromlove this jacket!!I purchased this jacket for my daughter and I and we love it! The construction and quality are nice, it is a great top layer for colder conditions that need rain/wind proofing and it is very comfortable and stylish. I like the length and all the adjustments that can be made with the elastic toggle cords. I will definitely be purchasing this in other colors.

Rated4out of5byfromLoved it!I loved this jacket so much that I bought a men's jacket for my fiancé. After years of abuse of this cute jacket, it finally started to tear (wear down) by the hood-neck attachment. It kept me dry while hiking in clammy weather at Mt. Rainier and it shielded me against wind while hiking Mt. Whitney.

Rated5out of5byfromGreat for my needsI bought this jacket to use on an upcoming trip that includes pretty divergent climates and a very strict weight limit on luggage. I needed something lightweight, comfortable, waterproof, and good for layering. I've used it in town and liked it; am hoping it performs as expected on my trip.
