User Review: The North Face Men's Venture Jacket
Price Paid: $100
I've had this jacket for about 2 years. For the first couple times I wore it, it was fine. A little humid inside but otherwise dry.
A few weeks ago I used it in a heavy rain storm and my shoulders and upper back were wet. I may have just gotten a lemon but from my experience, NOT waterproof.
The PROS are it's only 12 oz and packs up nicely in the mesh pocket. Good for light showers but not so great in heavy rain.
