Swiss steeps to Norwegian fjords.

The Black Crows Men's Ventus Gore-Tex 3-L Jacket is ingeniously designed for adventurous tours and big-mountain lines, making it ideal for everything from ripping steeps in Switzerland or boot-packing up couloirs above the Arctic Circle. Its no-nonsense, streamlined design offers all the features you need for strenuous missions in the mountains, but without slowing you down when uphill efficiency is paramount. Pack-compatible hand pockets, a silicone-grip waist adjustment, carabiner chest loop, and waterproof zippers make long days in the mountains more pleasurable.

Gore-Tex seals out oncoming storms, waist-deep powder, and howling summit winds from permeating through and chilling your core. Its 3-layer construction maximizes durability, without succumbing to premature wear during big-mountain adventures. Underarm vents release excess warmth when you're working up a sweat on rigorous tours. Lycra inner-cuffs keep outside snow and cold air from working inside and chilling your body. Also, there's brushed tricot lining along the front collar for irritation-free comfort.

Awesome jacket!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This jacket is bad a$$! super durable and able to with stand anything I put it through. 10/10 would recommend

stiff and noisy

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: lg

good design, well thought out, nice touches and optics inside.
the material is very stiff and noisy, sure bomber but others are making good tough shells that are considerably more refined, think flylow.
fit is a bit boxy and sleeves are superlong.

Bomb Proof!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Large

This jacket does not disappoint! Just like all Black Crow products the construction is nothing less than bomb proof. Received the Ventus jacket at the perfect time. Here in Aspen we're experiencing significantly warmer weather than usual with tons of precipitation. I work on the mountain all day and this jacket has no problem standing up to the elements. The zippers are heavy duty, hood hides my helmet perfectly, and the Gore-Tex build makes the freezing rain and snow slide right off while staying breathable. The underarm vents extend farther down the forearm than most jackets therefore providing optimal heat control.
The Ventus fits true to size. It will be perfect for layering on those variable spring days.
I can't wait to put this jacket through the wringer for the next several years.
Amazing construction and the built in lens wipe with graphics of Chamonix is a great touch.
Killer product that I would recommend to anyone who spends all their time in the mountains.

Thanks for the great review Philip! Glad you're so stoked on your Black Crows Ventus Jacket!
