Product Description Item No.   10048572

The Men's Venta AR Jacket by Arcteryx is a windproof, breathable, lightly insulated jacket perfect for skiing or hiking on cold days. This soft shell jacket provides excellent wind protection with increased breathability. If the forecasted dry conditions become fictional, whether it be rain or snow, the DWR (Durable Water Repellent) finish helps bead water from the fabrics surface making this an excellent quick-drying, snow-shedding garment. As you find yourself in an unprotected part of the mountain and your body temperature drops, bundle by inching up the full front zip, designed with a windflap for extra protection, tighten the adjustable hem drawcord and stuff your hands in the two pockets. Tiny GORE seam tape is used for reinforced insulation in weaker areas, and everything must be strong, strong like bull!

Chest / Bust - Measure around your chest / bust, holding the measuring tape under your armpit.

Waist - Measure around the natural waist, which is often the narrowest part of your waist.

Hip - Measure around your hips at the widest part.

Sleeve Length - With your arms in a slightly bent position, measure from the center of the back of your neck, along the length of your arm, to the wrist.

Inseam / Pant Length - From a standing position, measure from your crotch to your ankle.

Head Circumference - Measure the full circumference around the widest part of your head.

Hand Length - Measure from the tip of your middle finger to the base of the palm.

Hand Width - Measure the circumference of your hand around the knuckles, excluding the thumb.

• Please note that all the info provided above refers to body measurements, and NOT the dimensions of the garment.


Next to Skin Fit - These snugly-fitting garments are made with stretch fabrics to fit next to the skin to enhance moisture management and thermal efficiency. Garments in this fit category when constructed using Arc'teryx's heavier-weight AR and SV fabrics also perform very well as mid layer pieces, and users should consider selecting a larger size to accommodate a base layer underneath if the intention is to use this layering system as a mid layer option.

Trim Fit - Trim-fitted garments share the motion-friendly traits with Arc'teryx "Athletic" fit garments, but are patterned with lower volume for reduced bulk. These close-fitting pieces layer well under other garments.

Athletic Fit - This is the "Arc'teryx Standard" fit. These complete patterns utilize anatomical shaping and gussets to enhance motion by minimizing excess bulk. Easy layering under or over each item extends seasonal versatility and comfort.

Relaxed Fit - Relaxed fit garments rely on higher volume patterns and a reduced amount of articulation to offer roomy mobility.

Expedition Fit - Cut roomier than the Arc'teryx Athletic fit and suitable for winter/extreme conditions, Expedition (XPD) fit garments are cut larger to accommodate multiple layers without binding or restricting movement.

• You can find the fit type and additional fit info for Arc'teryx styles in the product description FEATURES and SPECIFICATIONS.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Balls deep in awesomeness This is awesome. High quality stitching and fabric. Very trim/athletic fit. Great, soft, comfy fleece interior - moves like a second skin...if your skin were fleece. Awesome against the wind. Arms are perfect length (6'3, 195, athletic build - size large); front hits just below belt-line. Warm on most days though if it's below 40F or so, you'll need something heavy underneath it. If there's one gripe to make, it's that the arm cuffs are a bit too snug when taking it off. The jacket goes on fine, and wears fine, but when taking it off, I have to let the arms go inside out, otw I feel like I'll rip the seams @ the cuffs.,,,,Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My go to jacket I have taken this everywhere all season long in Minnesota all over the state, but mostly the north woods. I backpack, car camp, hike, bike and boat. When in colder temps if you layer a good merino long sleeve with this or an under armor top they will keep you warm -combine all 3 for toasty warmth. I usually wear it in the rain with a cap because I dont like hoods much, given not a torrential downpour but it dries fast and is water repellent (not resistant). I got the Tarragon, which is a nice change from all too common black. Quality is top notch -no complaints here. Im actually looking at an insulated one right now on this site with a stow hood for ski season! :o)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Arc'teryx Venta AR I love this jacket with a passion, I really have used it for almost anything that i can think of: ice climbing, rock climbing, mixed climbing, hiking, and walking around. See, I like being happy and this jacket allows for that very thing. Once you get to know this jacket (its limits, when it over heats, etc...) it’s like a leather hiking boot in how it just gets better. The pockets are out of the way, so I can always a harness or backpack. The fabric has some spandex in it compared to the insider fabric, but has the same amount of fleece. This allows for more durability, and in my opinion, comfort. I gave it 4 stars because it was not extremely great just really great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought both the Venta AR and the Gamma AR and ended up keeping the Venta. Here is why: Venta: great outer shell. More wind/waterproof. More relaxed fit for layers underneath (can standalone in mild temps but is only lightly insulated). Keeps the snow/wind out all day and looks great! Wish it had the 3rd chest pocket like the Gamma,,Gamma: great layer (ANATOMICAL/WAIST LENGTH fit, stretchy, slightly thicker but less wind/waterproof= less bulky, more breathable layer but less ideal outer. IMO it kind of looks like a motorcycle jacket ,,It just depends what your needs are (water/windproof outer shell, stand alone or with layers underneath vs form fit, breathable inner layer with the ability to be a water resistant outer if needed with greater ROM for activities like climbing)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite overall jacket I wear this jacket everyday on my 30 min walk to work. I live in Germany and the temps during the winter are typically between -5 and 10 degrees Celsius. The fabric is windproof, warm and breathable. I tend to get quite warm when active, but when the conditions are cold I find this jacket breathes well enough to keep me comfortable. The DWR beads water on the surface of the jacket and doesnt let it soak in. I also carry a messenger bag, but after 3-4 months of daily use I do not see any signs of abrasion on the fabric in the shoulder area. The fabric just feels solid and ready to take on anything. It also has zipper pockets. The jacket also fits me perfectly, I am 6' around 190lb.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from TOTALLY WINDPROOF & WARM! Finally! A jacket that blocks wind, and has a normal neck size, (unless you're a pro wrestler) but I doubt a wrestler would even entertain the idea of purchasing this jacket. This is a true to size fit with 3 windstoppers. The Arc'teryx Venta AR jacket has excellent quality to it, and could be a shock to most people because of it's lite weight! The warmth is actually fantastic because it keeps your body temperature as the jacket is zipped up. This jacket can be used below or above freezing temperatures, and it has 2 external zipped pockets for your gloves, and cell phone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This jacket flippin' rocks This jacket definitely sets the bar for blocking wind and fitting perfectly. I'm 5'11" and 200#, so I've got a decent beer gut and this thing fits well. The windblock on it is amazing. I ride my bike often. My latest ride was in Chicago, on a day where it was 35 degrees, and windy. About 10 minutes into my ride, I had to unzip the jacket because I was sweating so much. This thing really does block the wind. The only part of me that was cold was my face and my gloved hands. The wind couldn't even make it through the jacket. Freakin' awesome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Jacket - Athletic Cut The Venta AR is my new favorite all-around winter jacket. From skiing to bar hopping, it does it all. For a windstopper jacket, it's dang near waterproof (short of a few hours in a heavy downpour). The only thing to note is that it is cut more like an Arc'Teryx Fleece. If you prefer a little more waist coverage on the slopes, you might look at the Venta SV - which has an added hood.,,,,Great jacket for any condition above 0 F I'd say - given proper layering of course. 6'1" / 170lb / Athletic Build and the Medium fits perfect over a Fleece and Base Layer.
