Out of the box, the look is wonderful. Plum in XS; love the color, and many compliments on it so far. Great windbreaker, length is good; fits well over thick tailor-fit fleece and fine without. I'm curvy, but if my hips were any wider, hipline might be a bit tight when worn over fleece. Sleeves are abt. 2.5" too long for me; on an XS would want them to be 1-2" shorter, but story of my life. I'm 5' tall, 115#, and *every* sleeve always somewhat too long for me. W/the adjustable Velcro wrist closure, sleeves fit w/ just a little bunching above wrist . Zip vents work well so far; I have two bum wrists right now, but still able to open/close each one with a single hand; smooth zip action. I'm cold-natured but sensitive to heating up in layers w/exertion. The jacket held up well to the "breathability" test on uphill/downhill fast walks; I really noticed the consistent temp maintained (with vents open). Bought for long walks in cool/windy/often-rainy climate in which 4 seasons can present in any given day. Will update review at a later date!
Exactly what I needed for our trip to Ireland! It’s super light so I was able to fold it and roll it up and keep it in my bag if I wasn’t wearing it, which was exactly what I needed. Actually keeps you really warm as well so I’m glad they have zippers on your armpits. Great quality!! Highly recommend this jacket!
Took me a couple wears to figure out how to secure the elastic adjusters on the hood but it's actually a pretty smart little thing that holds it where you want it compared to the traditional ones where you'd have two strings dangling. Like any rain jacket in the summer it is a little warm when it's hot and raining but that's to be expected. I LOVE the deep, deep purple color I got even though I only chose that over black because black was so much more expensive.
The North Face Women's Venture 2 Jacket - my main concern was long sleeves. I had already returned the Resolve because the sleeves were at least 4 inches too long! The Venture 2 has velcro wrists so you can adjust them and it fit perfectly. Loved this so much, I bought another and will be buying another next week in a larger size for the few days of cold we get in Florida, so I can wear long sleeves under it. LOVE this jacket - if you are a shorty like me - 5 foot - this would be perfect for you!
I really do LOVE THIS jacket. Typically I have a hard time with jackets fitting around my shoulders and bust, this surprisingly fit perfect and roomy up top,its a great thin material jacket but still high quality for rain. My only complaint is the fit around the bottom, its a bit tight at the bottom where it hits your hips, as this is a womans jacket I was suprised they wouldnt make the cut more roomy in the upper hip area at the bottom of the jacket. It still works and will be perfect for my upcoming vacation to Costa Rica.
This is an excellent lightweight, wind proof, and waterproof jacket for running in the rain. It kept me warm and dry, but it is breathable so I didn't get over heated. It was a rainy and quite windy day when I first tried it and the cold wind did not bother me at all. It kept the rain out so I was comfortable running 7 miles that day. I would highly recommend this jacket.
I love this jacket. It is great quality and it fits great (true to size). I love the color. I bought it for my trip to Seattle. While it did not rain much while I was there, it kept me dry the days it did. The jacket is lightweight and compact enough to fit into my Michael Korrs boho bag. I wore it while hiking and i could easily be spotted by my family.
I love this jacket. It is very lightweight and perfect for my climate! Mobile, AL is a constant rain or drizzle. It has a breathable lining that vents well if I have to wear it all day. Which happens a lot. There are a lot of pockets and storage and ties. Love it.
