The North Face Ventrix Jacket recently hit the shelves, but we are already loving it for the cooler temps in the Rockies this fall.
Gripped Publishing writer and top runner Tim Huebsch reviewed the jacket after trying it during the Ontario spring, see here.
The lightly insulated jacket is stylish, comfortable and water resistant. It’s great for cool morning approaches and staying warm between climbs at the crag. It has a nice fit and moves with you as you head up the rock.
The North Face says, “Tackle the challenges of rapid elevation gain and loss with this new, lightly insulated hoodie that features our state-of-the-art Ventrix™ ventilation for balanced warmth and breathability.
“Perforations in key areas are designed to expand and dump heat or contract and retain as you move, so you won’t overheat or sweat out.” For more see here.
