Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not Practical for Movement I'm a student at the UW in Seattle. It rains here, and when I'm making my 15 minute walk to class I expect to be dry. This jacket keeps my body dry. However, the new adjusters to tighten the hood do NOT work at all. There is no "stopper" on them so there is nothing preventing them from immediately sliding out and loosening. The hood, if it stays on my head at all, doesn't stay on my head to the point where it shields my face and some of my hair and I wind up having to sit through class wet. I don't know why the hood adjusters were redesigned; they're utterly impractical and it's a shame since I enjoy every other part of the jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely love this raincoat! This is the best raincoat I've ever purchased. I keep one in my office and one at my family's ranch, where I wear it almost weekly in an outdoor setting. It has held up very nicely. The side zippers are a huge plus because they let air flow around your core while still keeping you nice and dry. My favorite part is the adjustable point on the top of the hood; I have it set perfectly so the rain doesn't get in my face, but the hood isn't falling over my eyes. There is a small pulley that allows you to adjust the forward/backward height of the hood, around the hips, and around the collar. Highly recommend! And they have superb customer service!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rain Jacket I love the way it fits to my body. I was very surprised how well it held up to heavy rain. The one flaw or disappointment I have is that the jacket is not made for winter rain season. It's very thin and if you are not wearing a sweater under jacket you will be sorry and freezing cold. For the cost, I would not recommend this jacket for winter rain season. I would recommend for summer rain conditions. Please let customers know so they can make a more informed decision before purchasing. If jacket had a warm lining I would have rated this jacket a 5 star.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good to pack in your suitcase When I shopped for this jacket, I debated between this one and another one that looked sturdier, but this one was lighter, and therefore would pack to a smaller volume. I just came back from a trip and It rained 2/4 days. This jacket kept me dry. Lastly since I am a full figure, this is just the shape for me and during this trip I wore another jacket under it. The fit was just fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight and so comfy! Versatile, nice looking and comfortable--love it because it is so light weight but yet sturdy. It is wonderful as a wind breaker, as a rain coat and to keep the chill off in the morning and evening when they come. The inside pocket makes it so easy to store my phone and listen to audible as I walk and/or hike. My three other lightweight jackets will be going to Goodwill!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great rain jacket I bought this for a rainy backpacking trip to the redwoods. It kept me very dry and the armpit vents are a nice touch if you are getting warm. I highly recommend this jacket!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice and roomy I used this jacket on my trip to London. It was light enough to place in my bag when the sun came out, but was heavy enough to keep me warm and protect from the rain. This jacket is great for anyone who isn't super slim. It fits nicely across my oversized chest with room for a sweatshirt underneath.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Used for hiking, running, walking Perfect fit and super light weight. Great for 45 degree weather and warmer in my opinion. Great wind blocker in addition to being a great rain coat.

Questions & Answers

The material and thickness of the Venture 2 feels different depending on the color of the jackets that I saw in the store. The black, pink, and navy blue ones are made of a thinner material and the gray ones are thicker? Tags all said Venture 2?

Asked by: MDLA
Yes, I checked. TNF sends the different colors to different countries for manufacture, and the material thickness really is different depending on what color... the chambray colors are thicker and crunchier (gray, and light blue) while the other colors are like an umbrella.

I put this on in XL size @ Seattle store.  Plenty of room in chest/waist/arms.  However it's a bit snug around the hips.  The size chart seems to show XXL does not give additional room at the bottom.  Did I read that correctly - no more hip room in XXL?  

Asked by: Karen
The XL has a waist range of 35"-39", while the XXL has a range of 39"-42".

Hi! What is the difference between Venture 2 and Venture (https://www.rei.com/product/865132/the-north-face-venture-rain-jacket-womens) jackets? Thanks!

Asked by: Alice
The new version has a more relaxed fit. It is also lighter weight, but at the same time has a longer cut to provide more coverage.
