The North Face may feel increasingly geared towards the average Joe wannabe outdoors person, but they are still making incredible innovative products with a great lifetime warranty. The Ventrix Jacket is an example of this with new technology that helps you vent heat when you warm up in aerobic activities. What’s also interesting is that the vents contract to hold the heat in when you start cooling back down and need to keep it in. It’s cut with a clean slim fit that doesn’t sacrifice articulation for freedom of movement. The forearms are made of higher denier fabric to last longer and the fill is synthetic to keep working when the DWR wears off and you haven’t refinished. For $199, it’s a lot of tech jacket.
