Great, simple jacket from North Face. luckily was able to try on a size before ordering. Although it is similarly priced as the Venture 2, the material is a bit thicker.

The Venture 2 does have more features though, vent zips, but the material and look is slightly different.

I tried on a Medium and a Small, but this jacket was long enough for me to order the small. Normally my shoulders are a bit too broad for a size Small but this seemed to work out just fine! Arms are still a bit long for a sized small, but there are adjustable length at the wrist. Jacket dries pretty quick and packs down into my backpack for hikes. At 5'6 and 140-145lb it fits me and I am able to layer a flannel underneath. Would be a bit tight if I wore a sweatshirt underneath as I have fairly broad shoulders

Also shout out to the Gearheads for being amazing. If you have any other questions dont hesistate to reach out to them

I am a 5’6 male 140lbs with broad shoulders and skinnier waist (30”). Although it is slightly loose around the waist, the shoulders fit better (less restrictive) than the size small

Jacket is 550 down. The style is a bit baggier (puffs are larger and looser) than some newer NF down jackets. Jacket unfortunately sheds some small feathers, but NF told me that it would do that initially. Like all down jackets it can roll up, however it is not as compact as a lower down fill. Overall it is pretty warm. Could be in a T shirt in high 40F and be okay

Also highly highly recommend buying from Back country.. they are amazing!
