I've been called the "North Face Poster Boy" many times by my friends - I seem to always be decked out in this brand. While I own a ton of other North Face products, my favorite of all time has been the Apex Bionic. I absolutely love this jacket. It's the perfect spring/fall jacket. It's light, but completely wind proof. It looks clean when it's on me. It's perfect for collecting various patches from my adventures. The synch cord in the bottom of the jacket is clutch for creating a more fitted look. To top it all off, the finally offered the jacket with the crazy green accent color that I love so much from North Face! Just replaced my old one with the asphalt grey/citronelle green color. I am 100% behind your purchase of this jacket - you won't be disappointed!
