This is my third TNF Apex Flex GTX. I really like the softshell feel of this jacket along with the protection of Gore-Tex. The jacket is built like a tank.
The permeability is about what you would expect from a waterproof jacket...not great but the pit zips are a huge plus. In fact, I wouldn't buy one without pit zips especially if you expect to perform athletic activities while wearing the jacket Although there are some other products out there that are probably better (and you will certainly pay them) I really like this jacket as a shell for winter activities and its a decent value if you buy on sale. I've used it consistently in winter conditions in New Mexico & Colorado with a baselayer, 100wt fleece, and the Apex and it has done well for me. Although the Apex is heavier than the Gore-Tex Pac-Lite jackets it is certainly more durable and able to withstand more of a beating but its a trade off. This jacket is much too thick and heavy for summer wear in humble opinion.

I really like this shell. First time I used it in Breckenridge on Christmas Day 2017 and it worked great. It was snowing and pretty cold. I was wearing a baselayer, Marmot Reactor for insulation, and the TNF. I couldn't be more happy with the shell. It did great in these conditions. This year the jacket has also been to Monarch & Purgatory and did great there too!
