"Hi! I want to buy this jacket to use rainy and windy weathers but have some concerns that this jacket will not keep me warm with fleece underneath please give me some informations can I use this jacket for 35-40 degree days."
1 Answers | Answer Question
Question by Serdar Bodur on 1/14/2015 - 5:17 pm
A:
"This is a shell only so it is, as the title says, a rain jacket. You'd probably want an insulated jacket for temperatures in the 30's and 40's. Or maybe a down jacket underneath to keep you warm. I'd recommend the Columbia Platinum TurboDown 860 Omni-Heat Jacket, the Spyder Timeless Down Jacket, or the Patagonia Down Sweater Jacket!"

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.

            The jacket is a large jacket I am 6 feet tall and 175 lbs and the medium fit me very well. I am lanky so I have long arms and a skinny upper body and finding coats that have long enough arms are critical. This jacket is perfect for me. The large has much longer arms and wider body so I was swimming in it

                I am extremely happy with the purchase. I ordered a medium but I have shorter arms so the sleeves are a little long.Once I can tighten the cuffs with the adjustable straps, the jacket fits like a glove. I will be buying more of these jackets in different colors. Plus I can pack the jacket up in its own pocket and attach it to my pack when hiking. I definitely recommend!

                    The fit on this jacket is way off from past North Face rain jackets, and is now considered "relaxed fit". The sleeves are incredibly long and the jacket is quite baggy. I am 5'10 155 lbs and bought a medium. Consider purchasing one size smaller, or a different brand.

                        The one I got was to big, could be my falt. Sending it back to get smaller size. Taking to long. FedEx is Fing me. I'll let you know how the new one works.

                            Since I live in the desert I was looking for a lightweight rain jacket that will keep me dry but not keep me hot. This is the one. The sleeves are a little long but they aren't an issue. Material is awesome!

                                    Great product i bought this right before a rock climbing trip to montana and used it the entire time. The hat has a nice large bill to keep the sun out of your eyes and is brethable so your head stays cool. This hat is also very stylish and can macth with almost any article of clothing. There were a few minor problems with the way some things were sewn on but overall greta product i would buy this hat again and again.
