Rick B wrote a review of The North Face Apex Bionic Softshell Jacket - Men's on October 15, 2012
Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I was looking for a light jacket for the fall and I'm very happy with this jacket so far. Not too heavy, but will protect from biting autumn winds and the occasional shower.
I like the soft-shell fabric. It stretches a little to allow you to move like you need to without binding, but still fits snug for a clean profile.
I was also very happy with the purchase experience - shipping was very quick! I'll definitely come back for my next heavy coat purchase.
