I got my first Venture over 10 years ago. I believe it was about $75 so it has not even gone up much in price since then but the tech is better. About two years ago I noticed the inside coating was flaking around the hood/neck area, so I took it to the North Face store in Seattle and they sent it to warrantee/repairs in California and about two weeks later I received another brand new one in the mail. So all of the reviewers that complain about flaking and not liking the jacket because of it, well, if you'd read about the company you'd see that they have one of the greatest warrantees in the business. DON'T LIKE IT, THEN RETURN IT! Keep your receipts or better yet sign up with NF and they will keep your info/receipt in their computer system (I didn't have a receipt). NOW, enough of that. The shell is great at shedding rain. Remember that with any shell or outdoor technical jacket/pants you have to wash them regularly (like once a month or every two) preferably with a wash created for such things such as Nik Wax technical wash, and then treat it while wet with Grangers KT waterproofer or the Nik Wax version of such. Then dry it on medium in the dryer and your jacket will once again bead water. If you don't do this, no jacket including Gore Tex will bead water forever! BUT, that said, even if it does not bead water you will notice that no matter how wet it gets on the outside it does NOT soak through. If it does, then there's a problem with the inside coating so you send it to warrantee dept and they will most likely send you a new one. About the inside coating....it is rather "sticky" feeling and you DO sweat in there. Yes, the jacket IS breathable, but not perfect, that's why there are pit zips and you can also unzip the pockets for more air. I still sweat and it gets humid inside no matter what but it's not that bad. I like the hood on this jacket, I have a small head and while most any rain shell has an adjustable hood, I have found the NF brand to have the best hoods for fit. My venture has elastic on the cuffs as well as velcro which is a feature they discontinued a couple years ago, sadly. They should bring back that feature so one doesn't have to undo the velcro every time you take it off or put it on. This jacket has two zippered hand pockets and large inside mesh pockets (like for a map, or water bottle, whatever) which are great, and I've heard complaints on here about them tearing but even my old one I used for 7 years never tore! The jacket itself is also ripstop material so if you do get a hole, it won't widen. It's fairly warm too, you can layer as you wish to achieve warmth I wish they had a zippered chest pocket, that would be super helpful. But overall I love the jacket, great colors too, not expensive when compared to other jackets and it will last a LONG TIME.

I've owned two of these. In both cases the lining started peeling in the hood after about a year's use, and within a month had gotten real grotty. I'm not into having to buy a new one every year. Secondly, the earlier version of this the inside pocket netting extended down to the hem creating too large "bin" or "bucket" or "magazine" pockets - the main reason I bought the jacket, in the city these kind of pockets especially convenient for books and shopping In the current version, they took that extended netting out and you're left with only two hand-pockets. Other than that, the jacket looks great, the waterproof is great. Now if they reinstated the bucket pockets and fixed the peeling I'd be happy to buy another.

        Comments about TheNorthFace MEN'S VENTURE JACKET:

        First of all this jacket is just absolutely great! I live in Seattle and commute a lot therefore I get poured on a lot and this is just my go to jacket in the rain. I love the color (I have a blue/darker blue 2 tone) and it keeps me dry. However I made this comment not only for this jacket but for all their jackets. See, I am a big Northface fan. I have 3 Northface jackets: nuptse vest, apex bionic, and venture. All of them are all 5 stars in functionality but Northface's problem is their size. I'm an average sized guy, 5.6ft. 137 lbs but all their jackets are too baggy! Their small isn't small enough. If I only went for functionality then I would keep buying Northface but style to me also plays a role.

        I hope Northface creates a XS for men because their missing a huge chunk of the market for guys who require a better fit. Fit is such a big part of my buying preference that I actually moved on to other brands such as Arcteryx because they have good products and most importantly a better fit. I really hope there will be changes, till then I'm not buying Northface jackets.

          Comments about TheNorthFace MEN'S VENTURE JACKET:

          I bought the new mid-grey heather color and it is really stylish. Has a great textured look and I like the grey interior instead of the bright white. When trying it on next to some of the other colors at the store it felt sturdier and more heavy duty. I think it has a different external material - feels like it could double a ski jacket, while the other colors felt like really thin rain jackets. This jacket is super breathable with great wind and rain protection. Great for the rainy pacific northwest climate. Vents make it great for my short daily biking commute. Highly recommend this jacket - it is affordable and very functional.

          I absolutely love The North Face products. After I bought my first coat I had to have more of your products. Currently I have 4 coats, a beanie and a pair of gloves. And I am going to get more. The $150 gift card would really help me get more!!

          I used to have a GORE TEX pro shell. This jacket is just as water proof and very durable. More casual of a fit than I like but comfortable.
