You don’t need to grow dreadlocks and drive your Prius to the farmers market in order to be green these days. You can just don The North Face Venture Jacket. It’s made from HyVent DT EC, a new material made from the natural castor oil derived from beans. It reduces the use of synthetic membranes components by 50% compared to other traditional waterproof materials. It even won the Editors Choice Green 2011 award from Backpacker Magazine. Are you impressed yet? The Venture Jacket is specifically designed to take on the most raging thunderstorms out there thanks to it’s fully waterproof and seam-sealed construction and a velcro closure over the front zipper. It’s also breathable and lightweight so it’s no sweat to wear. Plus it has a fully adjustable hood with a visor, pit zips and a hem cinch-cord so that you can adjust it for a chilly spring shower or a hot summer rain. When the rains stop and the sun shines, stow it in its own hand pocket and keep on movin'.
