    Great Jacket

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: L

    Warm, water resistant, stylish. I have big shoulders and chest and a Large fit me just perfectly even though all my shirts and sweatshirts are XL. I don't think I'd be able to fit a sweater on underneath this jacket, but you won't need it. I used this jacket on a long trip to Seattle during February and felt like I didn't need a sweatshirt underneath, at most a long sleeve shirt underneath and I'd be fine.

    Performs as advertised

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

    I am a jacket freak. I have something for almost any type of condition. The day I got it happened to be max 27 with constant 15-20mph wind. The coat is ok in that temp with a tee shirt and long sleeve shirt underneath (no sweatshirt) however I would say for no longer than 20 min. After that I could tell it was getting cold. Its not advertised as the warmest coat so I am not unhappy. It does exactly what is claims it will. Its water "repellant" not Waterproof. Its warm on 32+ degree days for sure without another coat layer underneath. I wear it regularly to work in winter with just a regular shirt beneath and its fine. Its lightweight and fits well. I'm 5'10" and wear Medium in almost all brand jackets, the medium in this fit perfectly. There's room for layers beneath if necessary but it doesn't look huge if I'm just wearing a shirt beneath. For the price its a good buy. Its warmer than a "fall/spring" coat which cost the same money. The hood is a good feature. In light precip. or snow it does fine. It definitely blocks wind well.

    Apex Elevation Soft Shell Jacket

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

    The jacket is light weight and very comfortable for every day wear. The external jacket is very wear resistant so you won't easily tear it. It works great in light rain but I haven't tested it yet in heavy rain. The cut on the jacket is loose fit, not contoured to your body as many jackets are. I wear a large and the large jacket fits me perfectly in the shoulders, so it's true to size. When most say the jacket runs large it is due to the loose fit below the shoulders to layer clothing under without being snug. If you wear just just the jacket it will be a bit loose in the body as loose fit jeans would fit in the legs. The sleeves at your hands are the only dislike I have for the jacket. They hang loose without any type of gather, a Velcro cinch would have been nice to keep out snow or cool air when wearing light weight clothing underneath. The sleeves are made a bit long, great if you have longer arms, so they hang over your hands with no way to cinch them at your wrist. The internal liner gather sewn it at the wrists is loose to the point they could have left it out and no one would have noticed. There are only external pockets on the jacket, it would have been nice to have one or two internal pockets. I've worn the jacket in 30 degrees with 12 - 15 mph winds and was warm, so the jacket does it's job. It is a nice jacket but could use a few upgrades to make it perfect.

    Near Perfection

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs large

    I gave this jacket five stars because this jacket really is wonderful. I bought the yellow/brown color and it actually looks quite nice. The only grip I had was I wish that they gave adjustable cuffs at the end of the sleeves because I have had a little snow come in when shoveling snow. Also, the fit is different than most soft-shells that I have had. Its looser that you would expect from a soft-shell but that actually adds to the versatility of the piece because I can wearing around my college campus but also go snowboarding with it. It repels light rain and snow like a dream but will not keep you dry in heavy precipitation. Its also very wind resistant. I would recommend this jacket to anyone looking to buy a really nice winter coat.

    Where have you been!?!?!?

    Having had 4 other soft shells(Columbia Titanium, Patagonia Guide, North Face Android, Desert Combat Jacket), I have to say, this is the one! My complaint about most soft shells is that due to the cut it is difficult to layer, and the liners are never thick enough and due to the texture on the inside (apex bionic) it makes it a pain to put on and take off if you are layering. The best I had found until now was a military issue Desert Combat Jacket that had a waffle liner. Well, this may not be quite as wind proof as those, but the primaloft liner more than makes up for it. I find it to run a hair large, and compared to most other softshells which are usually cut very lean, this is quite a bit larger. Quite warm, and plenty windproof, with the smooth finish liner it is easy to layer under as well. Plenty of pocket space, and this feels more like a winter coat than a jacket. This is a bit bulky, not too bad, but you know you have a coat on. This was tested in 40degrees with 30mph of wind and was up to the task.

    Yes, I would say it is warm enough for the Northeast, though it all depends on what you are used too. I was in the Mnts in TN last Jan, snowed, rained, sleeted and was down in the teens. The jacket was certainly up to the task.
