    Almost great jacket

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium

    Unless you are a giraffe, the collar is too high. I have long (33") arms and the sleeves are too long, without Velcro to keep them off your hands. Had to return before wearing.

    Sleeves are way too long

      I'm 6 ft tall and 195 pounds. I ordered the Large and the sleeves are so long I would need the jacket tailored to be able to wear it. Makes me wonder what type of creature they used for this design. I may try the medium but not sure it's worth the effort.

      Great coat so far!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: XL

      This is the go to coat for fall days in Michigan. We have yet to hit real cold but I am assuming it will serve the purpose well. I got the XL and it has more than enough room for my 6'2 225LBS frame, layering will be an options with this one. I would suggest this as a definite buy.

      Classic & classy jacket

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Large

      I've been wearing TNF softshells for years; love the jackets. Plenty warm down to about 25 degrees, and does a great job shedding light rain and snow, as well as blocking wind. Not bad for a jacket without Goretex or Windstopper fabric.

      The only downside to the current Apex Bionic 2 over the original Apex Bionic is that the current model no longer has Velcro cinches at the cuff.

      It's minor niggle it's no longer there, and was likely done to cut costs ... but since the price of the Apex Bionic hasn't changed for about 10 years, it's not a deal-breaker.

      So far so good

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: XL

      The jacket was received quickly, and was packaged properly.
      Seems to be a jacket that will do the job, & will definitely handle the wind.
      Fits true to size. So far, I'd say I recommend this product.

      Great Jacket

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Large

      I have a number of shoft shells from several different outdoor brands and this one exceeds them all. This jacket is warm for temperatures above 40 degrees, blocks the wind well and is very functional for my use in the NC mountains. I purchased this to walk my dogs during the mornings during the fall and summer as well as a jacket for work. It works well for all of the above. I am 6' and 190 lbs and the fit is as expected.

      the go to coat

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: medium

      this jacket goes from a top dress jacket for semi-formal occasions to the slopes with style. i couldn't be more satisfied overall with a jacket.
      this is the 7th apex bionic purchased for my growing sons and myself.
      it is true to size and the quality, comfort, durability and classic style have
      been the reason behind our dedication to the brand.
      this jacket simply does not wear out.
      after owning mine for YEARS it is still going strong.
      it is comfortable from 15-50 degrees. cant say enough about this great piece.
      thank you, back-country for offering such great prices on the brands our family buys for all our outdoor activities, be it school, sledding, skiing. this jacket covers it all. :-)

      Seems great so far

      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Xl

      Perfect jacket for all occasions, great with business casual attire for work or useful as a shell for colder car camping. Too bulky to backpack with but this is my second Apex and I would purchase this again. Cinch chords on the bottom are nice to keep warmth in and it works well with the thermoball for freezing temperatures.

      Comfortable Jacket

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Small

      Really nice jacket. My only complaint and the only reason I'm giving it a four star review is because the jacket shipped to me was someone else's return that had dog or cat hair all over the inside. Way to not check out a return before sending it back out Backcountry (so in reality the jacket is a five star just not Backcountry's service this time around).

      Awesome jacket.

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Small

      I recently bought one in black for my boyfriend as a gift and he loves it. He usually wear a size medium in shirts, but the size small in this jacket fits him well. This jacket is great to wear in the city or out hiking in the woods. The black one looks great no matter where you are! I also have one (in womens) in the black color, and I've gotten compliments on them. I've had mine for a year and a half and I wear it everywhere. The height and weight is my boyfriend's, not mine.

      Great jacket and great service!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: small

      I have one of these and I am really impressed with the build quality and versatility of the jacket. Ordered one of these for my dad for fathers day and BackCountry went out of their way to make sure I got it on time. Great service!

      Great Jacket.

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: XXL

      Bought the jacket for a two week trip to Iceland and Ireland.
      I bought the XXL because I thought I may need to wear sweaters and sweatshirts.... Could have done well with the XL as I didn't need anything but long sleeved T-shirts under the jacket. The jacket does stop the wind which contributes to the warmth. Spent several days in the rain and went on a 1.5 hr boat ride in a storm, raining etc... never got wet!
      The jacket is lightweight and looks great... I would recommend!!

      Why is this recommended for climbing?

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Medium

      The way this jacket is designed, reaching both my arms upward is very limiting. This doesn't help me climb.
      The jacket is fine for hiking, going to a school or anything that doesn't require high mobility.
      Maybe I can see myself using this for belaying, but not for climbing.
      The jacket itself is fine and it fits nicely, but since I bought it for climbing it only gets 3 stars.

      this is just PERFECTION!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: small

      This is my second one and its not even cold, I like it that much!
      what like the most about this jacket is the light weight and the sharp looks, it goes well with my suits and dress clothes even when is not meant to be that dressy you know, so it does a great job when it comes to go downtown in jeans and sneakers, so very versatile and the fabric is one of those fabric that you just wonder if it ever gets damage, is so resistant and durable. great with water, great for a cold day in the 40's and 50's.

      Unanswered Question

      So what are the differences between this new version and the old apex bionic jacket? I can see there are no velcro cuff straps anymore - but what else has changed?
