Dirtywrote a review of The North Face Apex Bionic Softshell Jacket - Men's on January 20, 2013
Familiarity: I've used it several times
This is my first TNF Jacket. Traditionally, I'm a big supporter of Arc'teryx but wanted a causal jacket, a less expense, that gave me the ability to adjust the sleeve/wrist openings. I bought both the large and medium, and the large was great in the shoulders but made me look 7 months pregnant/gave an non tailored fit in the midsection. The medium worked out because the material stretches so I can layer up underneath and still keep a tailored fit through my midsection.
I can see the difference in quality between my Arc Jackets and TNF; in additional to the clientele they cater to. This jacket is sized to the masses in my opinion; if you're looking for a true technical piece- Go Fish!
My dimensions: 6'1 185-190, 41R suit, 16 x 34 dress shirt. 32 x 32 pant; and a fashion a tailored fitted in all my apparel
*MRSP on the Tag lists the jacket for 129.XX
