    How do ya make great better? Add a hood!

    If, like me, you've long been a fan of the Apex Bionic, but sometimes wished you had a hood, then this is the perfect jacket for you.

    Blocks wind well, and is water-resistant (you'll get wet in a hard rain, but will shrug off a light drizzle); it's a great 3-season jacket.

    Annoying jacket

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 5'5"
    • Weight: 170lbs

    Don't get me totally wrong - it's good BUT NorthFace could have done this a little better for three reasons: 1)If you pay close attention you'll see that the hooded version has no adjustability on the cuff. That's awful as the sleeve just drops out over my hand constantly. It can make using your hands INTENSELY annoying. Since I was about to check out with the regular version and saw on the bottom of the screen the "hooded" version; I assumed the hooded was the same as the regular; only with a hood added. Silly me. 2) the pockets have a vented liner in them. This is almost the same as leaving bare hands out in the cold if it's truly cold & windy outside (when else would I use the wind Stopper? I'm all ears) because the material sags with the weight of your hands. I'd like to see a cold weather jacket pocket lined by the coats material - not cheaper vent with large holes. Even the material used on the Denali pockets would be better. Also, keys get caught in it. 3)The chest on the large is great for me(43) but the arms are for a gorilla (they're long). Couple that with the sleeve & pocket issue and you can see why I get frustrated looking at what could be the perfect jacket go completely wasted as I won't be wearing it that much.

    Runs tight around chest

    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 180lbs

    I am 5'10" and 180 lbs with a 44" chest & 34" sleeves. The sleeves were 1.5 inches long and chest was so tight I send it back for refund. They are skimping on material cost at buyers expense. Logo also not embroidered just paint.

    I appreciate the post because I have found that TNF jackets in size large tend to be tight on me. I am basically the same measurements as you in regards to the chest and sleeve so its good to know to not buy a large. Might try an XL but I'm afraid that it might but too big. The perfect size would be a compromise of L and XL.

    The north face is the bomb

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    Gave this as a Christmas gift and the feedback I got is awesome. What I got back in return was its super comfy and feels very durable. Very pleased with this jacket!

    Great mixed use jacket for soggy NorCal. I'm 5'10" 170, 34 waist and 41 chest and purchased a large. The med is a slim fit and I wanted some room to layer. You could use this jacket all winter here in NorCal. Not totally waterproof, but it does the job quite well. TNF sizer said to get a Med, but it's too close of a fit in the pits to be comfortable or layer for that matter. I'm looking forward to using this jacket for spring skiing.

    Its a fantastic piece

    I got the black one and its my second apex bionic jacket. Very functional and warm compared to its weight. I wear it for everyday use. Fits really well and so comfortable, I don't want to take it off :)

    Great jacket, exactly as I had hoped

    A friend recommended this jacket for our x-country skiing and cooler spring/fall hiking, it's perfect, fits very well, is a great windblock, and the hood is great back country for keeping snow from going down your neck. I agree that the sleeves are tight, but if you hold onto your cuffs I have no issue pulling it over layers. I've worn it down to about 8 degrees and with layers it's perfect for what I intended. No complaints at all this season, other than I wish the logo were black like other North Face, just not a big fan of advertising on my clothing for any brand.

    Hooded Apex Bionic Softshell Jacket

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'8"
    • Weight: 170lbs

    Love this jacket. Great for outer layer with exception of heavy rain. Definitely wind proof. Can tell right away that it blocks wind in blowing weather. Does fine in light rain as water beads, but I think it would leak through an extended and hard rain. Not meant to be waterproof, so might need hard shell over. Also, seems good down to about 25-30 degrees depending on base layers. Surprisingly warm for weight.

    Good for active use with "stretchy" material. Relaxed fit allows for layering. Only down side is the cut of the sleeves. They are cut very tight and I have a difficult time getting the jacket on with anything but short sleeves or a thin base layer. The fleece in the sleeves seems to grab whatever you have on your arms since they are so tight. Only reason I'm giving a 4 instead of a 5. Have asked another owner when I saw him wearing in a store and he said he has the same problem. He also loved jacket otherwise. So, difficult to layer over anything bulky in the sleeves. Bought the hooded version as keeps my head and neck dry and warm with cold or rain. Easy to flip up, but wish it stowed to keep out of the way. It does not. Cinching the hood allows close fit with my head and face and does a good job turning with my head. So, does well in allowing unobstructed view, pet peeve of mine with other jackets.

    Side pockets have meshy material inside so opening pockets allows for venting when getting warm. No pit zips. The upper chest pocket has small hole that allows you to snake your head phones cable inside your jacket from the IPod or MP3 player in that pocket up to your ears. . Guide loop inside.

    Bought the hoodless version for my daughters and liked the style and quality so bought the hooded one for me. Thought the hood was definitely worth the extra $20 at regular price.

    A bit pricey at MSRP of $170 but caught on sale for $110 so was a snag. Suspect I will love for long while to come. Cheers.

    North Face Apex Bionic Hoody

    I'd been eyeing a Soft Shell hoody for some time. I'd planned on getting the Marmot Super Gravity but had tried it on locally and the fit was too trim for me. I found this one on Backcountry and jumped at it. I picked the high Rise grey so I could wear it during walks around my neighborhood and be seen. I made a great choice. Looks Good, Fits great and has kept me warm during a brutal stretch of NE weather. Looking forward to using it during spring skiing.

    Apex bionic scores big

    Got this for my son. He absolutely loves it. The color is great, the feel is good and the fit is excellent. He wears it every day to school, and can't wait to take it skiing. Excellent all around jacket.

    I would wear it if I could get it away from him.
