Andrew Trousdalewrote a review of Arc'teryx Ventii Jacket - Men's on December 11, 2011
Why doesn't everyone start ragging on the Spyder Pinnacle Jacket? Seems like Arc is the brand everyone loves to hate because they make the sickest gear out there. Its not like Arc is making you buy this jacket, and its definitely not for everyone considering that it is $1,000. Even still, this is the Jacket that a resort-goer is going to have for 35 years, and for that reason I bet its cost-per-wearing is gonna be a lot less than a lot of other Jackets out there. With the relatively high price of Arc'teryx these days, why don't you all consider that you buy nice or you buy twice. I own an Arc'teryx shell that costed $500 and I expect it to last 3 times as long as a $250 counterpart. I am also certain that if for some reason my Jacket doesn't perform the way it should, Arc'teryx will send me a new shell. Most Jackets these days are purchases, an Arc'teryx Jacket is an investment.
