So far, I am loving my Atom SV Hooded Jacket. I was looking for a while to find an upgrade to my Marmot Primaloft jacket (circa 2000). And with a move from NJ to southern VT, I wanted something that would be a bit warmer. My first week in VT was the coldest week in more than 5 years, and the Atom SV was up to the task. I can see that it may be too warm for some when doing active pursuits (skiing, snowshoeing, etc), but it is perfect as a casual, around the town jacket. Next season, I will try it skiing, matched with my Arc'teryx Theta AR Jacket (I have had several Arc'teryx jackets and have been a huge fan of their quality and how they stand by their quality).

I have been searching for the perfect softshell to replace a well worn Marmot Dri-Clime. The Venta AR may not be perfect, but it is not far from it. It is quite warm and windproof for its thickness and weight. And a great option for the sidelines of fall soccer games or more active pursuits. So far, I have just two complaints: I wish that there were more than the two hand-warmer pockets (one chest pocket would be ideal); while the material has a little stretch/give, it is not quite enough at the cuffs (a small gap of stretch and a velcro closure would make this jacket even better).

It is a very worthwhile purchase.

At 6' and 165lbs, the large is a great fit.
