    An excellent all-arounder.

    The North Face Men's Apex Bionic Softshell Jacket offers versatile protection for a wide array of outdoorsy activities. Its TNF Apex ClimateBlock softshell fabric is windproof and waterproof while its built-in breathability helps to keep you dry during aerobic exercises. The North Face added a fleece backer to add warmth on chilly days, and the cinch-cord at the hem keeps this jacket in place. Plus, there's an internal media pocket so you can jam out while you play in the woods.

    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.

    Great Multipurpose Softshell/Jacket

    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: XL

    You should probably get one. This jacket is roomy in the torso. It's a nice dense softshell material. The jacket is styled to that you could use it as a casual jacket, or a field softshell. It fits great with a fleece as the midlayer. If you wanted a tight fit, maybe err down if you are between sizes. The torso to waist area is roomy. You could wear this on milder days and layer it up for pretty cold weather. I think it's ideal for someone who wants to wear it for travel, light casual activities, and still has the ability to take on the wilderness. I'm a muscular 6 feet and 200 el-bees and it's still roomy in the XL without being too big. The velco hooks on the sleeve cuffs are strangely dense and not super sticky.

    Go-to jacket

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

    Light weight but warm enough for all but the most bitter days.
    Love the color Sequoia Red and get lots of compliments. 2 day shipping was as promised. The straps on the sleeves can be in the way.

    Solid

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

    This jacket is great for wind protection and is lightweight. It does alright in rain just needs a hood honestly. Other than that, it does well in the cold when you have a little layering of clothes going on. But this is the third Apex Bonic I've bought, worn two personally and one as a gift. They look very classy and are extremely durable. Highly recommended as the fall/winter jacket that will do what you need!

    Nice but could use some tweaking

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

    I purchased the Sedona Sage Grey Heather/Asphalt Grey for my husband. It is his go to jacket when temps are around freezing. He likes it and the fit is great. He wears it to the office and gets plenty of compliments.
    He only has one pet peeve and its the straps on the sleeves. They constantly come undone and catch on his pockets when he is reaching for something. I need to purchase a new jacket for him as he has lost some weight but I think I will need to look at a different brand or model b/c of this issue.

    pretty good overall - good wind protecti

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

    This jacket is more like a thicker outershell. Similar to the Patagonia Adze jacket, but wider relaxed cut. I kind of like the more relaxed fit, but it's actually ok. You can have thermals underneath and just appear to be more heavy set. Many have said it's very boxy cut, it is. The fleece inside is nice and soft. The windWALL fabric is good against windy chilly days. The jacket isn't too light, but I like it. It serves as more of a soft bomber jacket. Probably would not go running in this. It's more for skiing.

    Will....Not....Die

    • Fit: Runs large

    This jacket simply will not die. I can't replace a softshell just for the sake that I want a new color....I love the brown that I have, goes with everything, but I want a new color but can't justify it when this jacket after owning it for YEARS is still going strong.

    Blocks the wind like no ones business and sheds some light rain. This is a great fall jacket, or winter jacket with some light layering. I have owned it for years. I have worn it hiking, hunting, fishing, and around town and it always comes out looking new still.

    Outstanding

    • Size Bought: Large

    In this unpredictable New Mexican weather, this jacket is the end all be all of my outerwear collection. And I've had them all. It's tough, stylish and dependable. Fits like it should, and is completely worthy of the brand North Face. Grab one. You won't disappointed.

    Outstanding

    Great material, Great fit, Great price

    I really liked the way this jacket looked and so I went and bought one on sale. It came in the mail a few days later (shipping was free, thanks backcountry!). The size was what I had expected and fit great and seems like it will be nice and warm this upcoming fall.. Excited to wear it around.

    Perfect jacket

    My husband found this in a Sports Chalet and it looked so good on him. It was such a good deal on here I had to surprise him with it. He loves it and wears it all the time.

    Nice Jacket, but a bit tight

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Medium

    I like almost everything about the jacket, but it's a bit tight in the chest. I tried a large, but it was too long in the sleeves, and very large on me. I usually fit a medium, but the jacket is just a bit too tight in the chest, making it difficult to layer. It fits fine with a T shirt, or a light shirt, but cannot be comfortable with a flannel, or a light sweater underneath the jacket.

    blue/gray selection

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

    excellent quality, nice thick material. fleece lined shoulders and sized perfectly. I chose the XXL (I have super wide shoulders) but normally would buy the XL

    Changed the design of the chest pocket

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 3xl

    I have ordered a few of these jackets over the years. I like the fit, I like the windproof material, and I *liked* the pocket design.

    This newest version has shrunk the chest pocket. Prior years I could keep my phone and my wallet in the chest pocket with room to spare. Now it's barely room enough for my phone.

    Super disappointed, this has been my go to jacket for years, now I'm going to have to try and track down something else.

    Great jacket!

      Fit felt a little off and boxy at first, but I came to find that it accommodated a light mid-layer when needed. Blocks wind extremely well and repels a light rain if needed. Material feels durable and good protection on trails with a lot of brush or jagged rock. My only complaints would be that it isn't that warm by itself and tends to retain the smell of camp smoke even after a few washes; thus only 4 stars.

      Odd sizing

      • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
      • Fit: Runs large
      • Size Bought: Small

      I bought this and returned it, not because I didn't like it, but because it was very slim and tight in the arms (for a regular fit) and extra wide/large in the waste. It just didn't fit properly but I can tell its a nice jacket and will work great if it fits you properly.

      Excellent Jacket

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: 2XL

      Great jacket, I bought the 2XL and it leaves plenty of room to wear a fleece or puffy vest underneath, size comparable to other softshells. Really nothing wrong with this jacket that I can pinpoint, it's just not as great as my previous softshell (out of production model from another manufacturer), not as warm, not as windproof, not as soft, but in fairness it was a $300 MSRP model not a $200 MSRP model. Primary complaint would be that the pockets extend back behind the hand holes and behind your centerline, so I occasionally 'lose' my keys or other small items because they are in a difficult to reach place. Also I don't like the plastic wrist velcro compared to soft velcro straps covered with the softshell material. Media pocket feedthrough and headset retention loop are nice features as well as the in-pocket waist cinch.

      too small

      • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
      • Fit: Runs small
      • Size Bought: L

      backcountry should label how the jacket is cut. This is cut in a more slim fit/tailored rather than my other NF snowboard jacket. Sucks that I have to pay for return.....

      I wonder: did somebody tried that jacket on real conditions?

      Especially for those who had to stay because of the blizzard.

      Thank you

      I have used the jacket through two winter seasons of Colorado mountaineering; absolutely no complaints. I must admit however, I have not tested it in a real blizzard; heavy snow, 20-30 mph winds yes, but no white-out conditions. Sorry, I avoid blizzards.

      I want to use this as a shell over my Patagonia Down Sweater. Every jacket I own is a large (except Helly Hansen). I know the sweater will compress but am wondering if a large might be too snug to layer under?

      How much warmth does this softshell offer? I have a Arcteryx Beta AR hardshell that fits slightly loose (L, med was too small). I have a midweight baselayer and also wear a very high quality, med weight merino wool sweater over that. Also, does fit slimmer than the Denali? The Denali L fit fine in the shoulder, chest and arms but was too 'baggy' on me, too much so for a midlayer, and subsequently let too much cold air in and is not windproof.

      Having recently tried on both a Denali and bought the Apex Bionic, the Med in both fit very differently. The Denali seemed much looser in the body than this which was fairly snug. Seems like more would fit under the Denali than the Apex Bionic. I bought the Bionic since it was windproof and water resistant. There is a windproof Denali. My only complaint on the AB is that the sleeves are cut very narrow and it's hard to put on with any kind of sleeves on. Good luck!
