When inclement weather threatens your hike, backpacking trip, or travels, reach for The North Face Women's Venture 1/2-Zip Pants. These lightweight, waterproof, and breathable pants feature DryVent 2. 5-layer fabric and fully taped seams so you stay dry in unsavory weather conditions. The relaxed fit, elastic waist, and bottom ankle zips with hook-and-loop adjustable cuff tabs make it easy to put on over your shorts or pants when the rains come. Two zippered hand pockets also house your lip balm or cell phone, and at 8 ounces per pair, there's no reason not to toss them in your pack when you hit the trail.
