William's Bio

Because of the nature of the Apex fabric, the hood doesn't lay down very well when not in use. It's not a functionality problem at all, just know that you are a bit more aware of it being back there when seated, or even just walking around. I opted for the Android over the Bionic this year for the hood, and have ZERO regret. In fact, it completes the full coverage shell functionality that the Bionic is noticeably lacking.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is a quality product, and looks great too!

The Apex Bionic and Android products are perfect if you are looking for a slim fitting shell that also also moves and flexes with you when active. The fabric is very flexible, yet is still a good shell against the wind and light rain.

You should know, however, that thermal retention is not its strong suit, and needs a layer underneath for sub-freezing temperatures. 50 degrees and up? A t-shirt for most will suffice!

As is typical with most shells, it could stand to be a bit more breathable. Things can get a bit clammy underneath when active, so layer accordingly.

This is my third Apex garment, and I will be back again. It's a bit more specialized than many may realize, but quite appropriate for casual wear too.
