Michael Riddellwrote a review of The North Face Apex Bionic Softshell Jacket - Men's on November 28, 2011
I wear this jacket nearly every day that the temps drop a bit. It is an amazing softshell that keeps the wind off and keeps me warm, but not too hot and sweaty. TNF always has enough pockets in their jackets.
Unfortunately, this jacket does not zip into the waterproof shells like the Mountain Light jacket. My Denali fleece zips into the waterproof shell, but it does not stop the wind nearly as well as this jacket. The Apex bionic jacket is water resistant, though. Now I do not need to wear my Mountain Light shell unless it is raining really hard outside.
