I prefer the original Ventrix jacket

I returned this product before using it
Size Bought:
6' 1"

Not what I was expecting. I bought the original Ventrix jacket in 2017 and it was great. Had ripstop material on forearms and elbows, and it was constructed to deal with hard use. I loved that jacket and I ordered a new one because the one I had was stolen during a trip. This new one is a cheaper version with no ripstop fabric, no ventilation in the armpit, not as durable fabric overall and the zipper hardware is low quality as well. It's ok for light use around town but that's the extend of it. Someone has to tell The North Face to not fix it if it ain't broke. Other than that the service and delivery service of Backcountry is amazing, keep it up guys!!

Almost perfect

I've used it several times

This is the most comfortable jacket I have ever owned!!! Lightweight but at the same time warm! The sizing is the only reason I didn't give it a 5??. I am 6' 184lbs and usually wear a Northface large but the body of the jacket is slimmer so I got XL and it's a little big.

Great lightweight jacket

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Size Bought:
5' 9"

A couple comments to add to the other reviews- I have not seen the other model with 80g of insulation, but this jacket feels very warm for what it is. Probably too warm to wear in the house. Also the cuffs are a little odd, but its not something that bothers me. On sizing- a typical medium runs a little large for me, this one feels a little small. The material has a little bit of stretch. I think most people could size up on this, unless you want something that is more form fitting.

Seems to be a cheaper knock-off

I returned this product before using it
Size Bought:

I had ordered a black Ventrix jacket in the past which I loved so much I decided to order another in a different color. What a disappointment! It lacks the tiny ventilation holes under the arm pits and at the inside back, the elastic in the cuffs is thinner and doesn't hold back the inner liner from protruding, and it seems a bit puffier than the older model. Shocked that North Face would let such shoddy workmanship on the market. Returning it. It's got to be a counterfeit. Would love to find the earlier version which rocks!
