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.
