So hard to find remotely functional clothing in plus sizes! Fat women leave the house too! I was thrilled to find a raincoat in my size that was waterproof, breathable, lightweight, and had pit zips. It was even a gorgeous purple colour! I love that the hood has a slightly stiffened brim and is adjustable, although I still haven't figured out how you secure I love that it packs into its own pocket. I love that the sleeves are not miles too long for my 5'2" self and have velcro to tighten around the wrist anyway. I love that it is as thin and cool as it could possibly be, so it doesn't feel like torture to put on in the summer. I just took it on a canoe trip where it and I both fell in the water. Even putting it on over wet clothes, it dried within minutes. I was skeptical about the breathability, but I was cool and comfortable and the fabric never felt clammy on my skin. It's nice that you can adjust the bottom drawstring from inside the righthand pocket, so you don't have to unzip to tighten, even though the fit will never allow me to use this feature.

If I could have everything I wished for, it would be a bit looser through the hips (I'm about two sizes bigger in the hips than through the shoulders, and I won't be able to zip this with a sweater on), would have longer/more vents (including a back one) and maybe have mesh in those to keep them from gaping too much when unzipped, have a two-way main zipper, and have at least one zippered pocket (although the current pockets are very deep and well-shaped to feel secure). It would also come in even more sizes. Although I found one that worked for me, there are still several people in my life who can't get rain gear for love or money.

I am very disappointed in this jacket. My friends and family members have the original Venture Jacket, which I love. I figured the Venture 2 would be fairly similar, but this jacket is completely different. This jacket is twice as short as typical North Face jackets. The longer length of North Face jackets is what I love about them, but sadly this jacket does not have that length. The arms are too long, so if I were to order up a size for a longer length, it would not fit in the arm length or the width. The jacket itself is very stiff, and the material is not that of a typical rain jacket. It is too thin and light-weight, especially compared to the original Venture Jacket. The collar is designed and structured to lay flat/open on the chest, rather than straight up like most jackets. This jacket is more of a light-weight, structured, "for looks" jacket rather than a functional, moveable, and durable rain jacket.

      This jacket is great! I usually have to go to men's sizes because I am tall (5'11") and broad shouldered. This is still a bit short in the sleeves/tight in the shoulders even with the body being baggy, but it is very water repellent and I love all the pockets! I wore it most recently to take pictures on a summit in the rain and I stayed dry. The small visor on the hood is great, the zippers are easy to zip, and the fit is flattering. Great price on sale too!

      I got this for a backpacking trip in pretty warm weather but gaurenteed rain and it was perfect. We got caught in a downpour for about an hour hiking and it kept me dry. Lightweight and easy to pack too. My only complaint is the fit. Im pretty petite and the jacket fits really wide.

      I am a 5'3" 115lbs woman and I got the S size and it fits me great. The sleeves are a bit longer than my arms but they can be adjusted around the wrists which is perfect. I like that it also allows for adjusting around the hips. The length is perfect. There is more than enough room for a sweater underneath if you ever need to wear one. As for the waterproof capability, as I had already read in other reviews, the zipper under the arms will not hold any water, but I haven't yet had a problem with that. The fabric itself is definetely waterproof but way too warm for Louisiana summer weather. The galaxy purple color is gorgeous!

        I bought this jacket to protect against the rain while hiking the Camino de Santiago. I needed a compact jacket that would be rain proof for the days it might rain. I've wore this jacket 4 days on the Camino including rain and thunderstorms and it doesn't hold up. After the first hour it leaks rain and I'm not sure how. At first I thought it was sweat but two days in a row I wore it and it drenched my shirt. The lifetime guarantee only works for the first 60 days so unfortunately I can't return it. I just hope there will be no rain on the horizon the rest of my trip.

          I had the similar version from maybe 2011, but they have updated the material and lining since then and it is much better! Less flimsy but still lightweight and protects in a rainstorm, love the heathered color too.

            I sadly returned this jacket. The color and style were great but the "heathered" colors are made from a more substantial material which means not as packable. In fact I could not stowe it I to it's pocket. I will probably get the regular color (not heathered) because it is otherwise a nice jacket.

                      This is a great coat, light enough to wear a sweatshirt underneath and you still feel warm. Dries very fast and keeps you really dry when it's pouring down rain!

                          Purchased this as a lightweight rain jacket for spring/summer. It's wonderful. Love the color.

                          This was the second version of the coat I have purchased. I loved the first one but it didn't survive a scooter accident in Asia. This was not as good as the first version at all. The white layer near the hood has rapidly started to peel away leaving the inside of the coat patchy. Very disappointed with this coat :(

                                Not super breathable (but most effective rain coats aren't). Fit is flattering, and it gets the job done!
