Sterling Hillwrote a review of Arc'teryx Venta SV Softshell Jacket - Men's on November 7, 2008
Okay people. Here's the scoop! I just tried on this jacket. And I was in shock how much room was in it? If you are used to the gamma jacket get ready for a much different cut! I don't know about the large? But I am 6 ft. 190lbs. This jacket was huge in the bicep area? and in the chest. It then tapers down slightly and cuts off at the hips in the from. They normally have a more athletic cut? If you want a large normally? Get a medium. I'm 100% sure about this! Also. The fleece lining isn't thick.. Were talking very minimal. Very thin coat. (if you want a thicker little warmer coat try the Elipson) Great for fall night and sunny winter days in UT. Do not think this is a shell that will keep you warm 27 degree or less. It won't. You will need a layer. slightly disappointed! But even a bad coat from Arc Teryx is still nicer than the best jacket from Columbia)
mark my words. I know my sizing! And I know Arc Teryx.
