The North FaceVentrix Insulated Jacket - Men's

An essential adventuring piece.

Built to handle days spent bagging peaks in the shoulder seasons, The North Face Men's Ventrix Insulated Jacket tackles the rapid change in weather you're sure to experience.

Great Jacket

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Size Bought: Large

I've got a couple of these (hooded, non hooded) and love them. Definitely the best option and the most friendly on the wallet.

Great Mid Layer

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: M

I initially ordered the Arcteryx Atom LT, which alas does not fit me (Medium was too small, and large way oversized). So I moved on and bought the ventrix and I really love it ! It's warm, breath well so you dry quickly. I used it in the low 20's for skiing and was fine all day.
So why 4 stars ? Because really the one I want would be a summit series without the hood, and it does not exist. The wrist cuff in particular are nicer on the summit version but is it worth the overpricing of the summit series,. definitely not.

Overall I highly recommend this item for any outdoor activities.
Bonus : The color selection is awesome, it's too bad that the 2018 one tend to go back to more "boring" colors

North Face Ventrix

    This Jacket is great around town and up in the mountains. Perfect light weight jacket for mid-late spring or fall. Breathes really well so you don't get really sweaty while hiking around.

    Would you mind sharing what size Ventrix you purchased, and how it fit? I'm about 2" shorter, and 10lbs heavier with broad shoulders and generally fit (no pot belly).

      I get hot quickly when I'm active, so I really like how this jacket vents. The insulation is almost foam-like and has slits in it. As you move those slits open up and let air through, but when your still they close up and keep heat in.

        I get hot quickly when I'm active, so I like the breathability of this jacket a lot . It's sharp too. I have a compact build and the fit is slightly lanky for me. Long in the arms and a bit tight in the shoulders. Still wearable though.
