Arc'teryx Venta AR Softshell Jacket - Men's

This thing rocks the house. I give it a 5 out of 5 for functionability. I use it mainly for running and wearing around town, but it actually makes a fantastic golf jacket, as it's so lightweight, windproof, and breathable. And because it breathes so well, I can wear it on a run with a light layer in below freezing weather (New England winters), and with just a tee shirt when I hit the trails in the fall and spring. I give it a 5 out of 5 for comfort. It's clearly built for an athlete, which is obvious from the minute this bad boy is put on. The arms rotate around better than any jacket I've ever owned. Coolness? Come on, 5 out of 5 again. If you can swallow the price on this puppy, you won't regret it as you'll be the envy of people who really know outdoor clothing. One small but important note, the zippers on this are awesome, they are as smooth as butter. Truly a pleasure.
