Gear Review: TNF Venture Jacket
Christina Suppe / Branford
The North Face Venture Jacket – I have two now and use to have another
Best uses for product:
The rain, going hiking, winter insulation as a shell
What you used the product for:
Going out in the rain mostly. It is waterproof, breathable, and seam sealed. I bring it camping with me and have been wearing my new one on cool nights this spring. I got caught in some torrential, tsunami downpours while camping one time and was very happy to have my jacket with me. I was the only one who brought a rain coat.
Favorite aspect of the product/special feature:
The best part is that you can stuff it into its own pocket. It makes it easy for travel. When not using it to stay dry, it doubles as a pillow. Having pit zips is also nice when wearing it for activities like hiking.
How it fits:
I feel that The North Face tends to run a little large, at least in my women’s one. I have the men’s also and I had to go down a couple of sizes from what I have in the women’s. The cinch cord on the bottom makes it convenient to pull it tighter if it’s too big, or it is very windy.
