The lifetime warranty means nothing. The lining in mine has completely deteriorated and the jacket is unusable. And I'm told lifetime warranty = 2 years! Very disappointing. Don't waste your money!


  • Lifetime warranty means nothing
  • Lining deteriorates


Very disappointed with this item, as I thought I was getting something of quality. The lining has completely deteriorated and the jacket is can only go in the bin. Their "lifetime" warranty (as I've been informed by email) means two years. Deceptive advertising if you ask me! Don't waste your money.

Welcome to Trailspace, Goldy. Do you have any pictures you could share in your review showing how your jacket has broken down?

Thanks for the picture, Goldy.

That is really sleazy about the warranty. Inanimate objects don't have a lifetime as they are not alive. If the North Face doesn't want to give a lifetime warranty, then they just shouldn't give a lifetime warranty, instead of offering it induce buyers, and then backing out!

I guess that is a change since VF bought The North Face?

Lightweight, waterproof, roomy.

The two main things I like about this jacket is that it's lightweight, but not flimsy...and also roomy. It's a bit longer than I expected, but that gives more protection to your body. I'm usually a 1X, but an XL is perfect for me in this jacket. It's waterproof too. I like it!

I TOTALLY love this jacket.

Bought an ivory rain jacket and it is just AMAZING. It looks good with all my jeans and yoga pants and all my friends are JEALOUS of it! I love it so much and i want to buy every color of it!

At first i was a little uneasy because of the price.. but most GOOD rain jackets cost about that much and this is DEFINITELY worth it. BUY IT, LOVE IT.

Utterly disappointing. I bought this for a 3-day trek in the Lakes and it ruined my trip. The weather was predictably awful and the water just soaked straight in. I can't figure out why; there's no obvious place for it to come in, but as soon as it rains I get wet. I use it as I would a cheap kagool now; stuffed in my bag when I go to town. Glad I didn't pay the RRP.

Price Paid: £54

I will preface this by saying that this is my second Venture Jacket. The first one was a total piece of crap and after two years of total frustration with it, I boxed it up and sent it back to North Face. The NEW one they sent me is great.

Fabric: Hyvent
Price Paid: $100
