I purchased this jacket (in TNF Black) after the holidays when the price dropped, as well as the TNF Men's Apex Bionic softshell. I bought both online so I could compare the two in person. I went into a local REI and tried on this jacket in the size I ordered as well and fell in love! I went with this jacket because it was extremely warm and realized I didn't necessarily need a windproof jacket like the Apex Bionic. Thus I returned that jacket.

This jacket has kept me cozily warm throughout the early winter this year in 30 degree weather. I've already used it for several hikes in the wild and general errands in the city and it's been perfect. I even got caught in light rain for about 15 minutes and though it absorbed the water it wasn't soaked - no water came through the fabric and onto my layers beneath. This has been the best thing I've purchased in years and I look forward to exploring more of the wild this year in my Denali hoodie. Thanks for reading!
