This jacket is extremely light (think piece of paper) but it is sturdy and definitely holds up to the rain. I have to say the hood does a come a little far forward which can o…

All and all this is a good entry level jacket, but do keep in mind that it is sized for the masses (boxy, wide). Also the length could stand to extended an inch or two.

Bought these to wear when I went snowboarding in temperate weather. They are perfect! Unlined so only hold the temperature of what you wear underneath. Also great for physical…

North Face Venture
The North Face Venture is actually a whole set of waterproof jackets and pants. Waterproof things are amazingly handy. I have a waterproof radio in my shower which always makes shampooing more fun. North Face Venture includes waterproof jackets and waterproof pants for men and women.
The North Face makes Venture jackets and parkas for women as well as two types of waterproof pants. The only real difference between The North Face Venture Jacket and The North Face Venture Parka is that the parka is longer. That sounds like it's not a big difference at all, but when you are stuck in a rain storm and everything around you is soggy and you are lucky enough to have a jacket that comes a few inches past the top of your pants so there's no seepage, you will thank me.
The North Face Venture Pants are great waterproof pants that have the flexibility to go from mountain summit to camping out in a ticket line for that once-in-a-lifetime show. They also offer Venture pants with side zips. This amazing little detail relieves a lot of hassle. By adding a full, seam sealed zipper down the sides of the pants The North Face has now allowed people everywhere to take their pants off without removing their boots.
Men, fortunately, are offered all of the same great North Face Venture styles as women are. Waterproof jackets, parkas and pants for all occasions. The Men's North Face Venture Jacket is perfect for braving tropical storms or just splashing through some puddles in your new goulashes. The waterproof pants can be worn as an outer layer while skiing or as protection in a tropical storm.
