From FIND YOUR FEET: The North Face Venture Jacket is not a specific race jacket but is a great all-round option that is still quite light & packs up small. The fabric is heavier duty than your pure race alternatives. The jacket's material is completely waterproof, breathable and seam-sealed. The jacket is shaped for men, is a slightly longer cut than most lightweight jackets and it stows into its own pocket. Thus this is a ideal option for mandatory gear requirements in trail running races but also a jacket which you can use for travelling or fast packing.
Be prepared for extreme backcountry weather with this lightweight, waterproof and windproof jacket that features a durable yet breathable ripstop exterior, Relaxed Fit and adjustable hood that leaves room for a helmet and extra layers.
Waterproof, breathable, seam-sealed DryVent™ 2.5L shell keeps you dry
