The Men's Venta SV Jacket by Arcteryx is a windproof, breathable, lightly insulated jacket delivering the highest level of protection in Arcteryx's softshell category. As you're shredding the slopes, durable water repellent finish, full-front zip with a wind flap will keep you completely protected from the tougher conditions. As you slide into the lodge, unzip the pit zippers for easy ventilation. When you decide to take your gloves off to pack a snowball and successfully hit your buddy in the head, tighten the laminated Velcro cuffs and revert back to your hand pockets to de-thaw your cold fists then grab your digital camera from the internal chest pocket to document the madness. As he plans his revenge, stuff your face in the warm soft-brushed lined collar for extra comfort.

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.

• 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 The Perfect Length Ski Jacket For Tall/Athletic Peeps The Venta SV is what I've been dying for from AR for years now. A LONGER jacket that covers more than your belly button if you're a little more slender than average. For a windstopper jacket, it's dang near waterproof (short of a few hours in a heavy downpour). ,,If you like something a bit higher fitting, look at the Venta AR. Basically the same jacket, though the AR lacks 2 things that annoy me (both of which are on the SV!): pit zips and an internal pocket.,,,,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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Man seeking long term relationship with a loving, caring and warm soft shell FYI - you do not date Arcteryx clothing, you marry it. So if you are into hooking up with various soft shells, don't invest the coin into this jacket. However, if you are ready to settle down and get serious, this is your girl (man). I have several of their pieces and they just flat out do the job. This jacket is 100% windproof for real. I've worn it in sub-zero temps with an impaling wind and I've had it on over 40 degrees and snowshoeing through deep snow. It breaths, it vents (pit zips) and it is damn near water-proof (as tested in a heavy soaking wet snow fall that could not bust through the shell). This jacket had me at "Hello".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great jacket, perfect warm replacement for a hardshell This is an amazing jacket. As is usual for arcteryx products, great construction and perfect fit. I'm 6'2" 200lbs and I bought a large. The body and sleeves are long enough to provide plenty of coverage, and the overall fit of the jacket is athletic, but loose enough to layer under. The pit zips are great and essential since the jacket doesn't breathe super well during intense activity. It's warm for a softshell, especially with the hood, which is huge. The only con is the sleeves are real baggy, a lot like a burly hardshell, and it can look a little funny when the cuffs are tightened. Other than that, I'm happy.

Good luck finding a better softshell

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Jacket!! I had a venta jacket without the hood and I simply wanted a jacket with longer length and a hood attached to it. Though the quality of Arcteryx is not in question in any shape or form, I think the jackets are manufactured a little short. Though I am not the tallest guy, 68", the jacket fall a little short. Also, I wear large shirts Arcteryx motive polos and delta zip pullovers, but I wear medium for Arcteryx shells. And for softshells, I wear large. I wish Arcteryx will provide consistancy when it comes to size of their products. But when you manage to find the right size of your choice, the product quality is superior. And it really doesn't matter where you're golden.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great All-Around Soft Shell I did a lot of researching ski gear this off season because I was freezing on the lifts on the way up and sweating to death on the way down the slopes. First I decided to do the layering system with a base layer, mid layer and shell. The decision then came down to soft shell vs. hard shell. Since I get very hot easily I went for a soft shell that could breathe. The great thing about the Venta SV is that it is just about as waterproof as a hard shell due to the gore-tex and taped seams but more breathable. It also has a very thin insulation layer, making it great to wear by itself on warmer days. So far I have skied in Utah and Vermont this season and it has worked out great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great jacket! This is a nicely designed jacket-- not bulky (substantial, but not too heavy material). Windstopper makes it a decent shell for cold days, and the excellent pit zips let you ventilate when needed.,,,,I am 5'11" and 198 lbs with a 36" waist. Was gonna get a Large, but decided to go XL so I could wear a sweater and lightweight down jacket if needed. Glad I did! Even with just a shirt on, it is not over-large at all (though the sleeves are 2-3 inches longer than my 36" arms need; the velcro straps at the end solve that issue), yet I have enough room to add layers if I need them. The Large would have been too tight.,,,,Some companies' XL sizes are huge, but not so with Acr'teryx.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Go to Jacket I have had this jacket for over a year now. Hands down, the first jacket I grab when walking out the door. As a college student studying Forest Management, I am constantly running across campus and stomping through the woods on a daily basis. This jacket has held up to it all. Best part is, its also serves double duty on my backpacking adventures as well. Light enough and breathable enough to wear on winter hikes. I would recommend this jacket to anyone. If you are looking for an all purpose jacket that will keep the wind off you and the rain from soaking you to the bone, this is the jacket for you.
