    Excellent Shell Jacket

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'9"
    • Weight: 162lbs

    Used as my shell jacket underneath my snowboarding jacket & cold weather jacket. Does not under perform, great look and style. Find the color you want, and you'll look great anytime you wear this while feeling the warmth and comfort you need.

    Decent Fall/ Spring Jacket

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Small
    • Height: 5'8"
    • Weight: 150lbs

    Pretty solid coat that is excellent for mild to moderate cold. I would not suggest it for any harsh winter weather, but it is good at repelling wind, and somewhat capable of repelling water.
    The fit is fairly true to size.

    Durable, Wind-stopping Power

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 6'1"
    • Weight: 180lbs

    I was looking for a jacket for use at work in a dry and rocky area. I did some homework and came on the Apex Bionic 2 Jacket. I'm glad I listened to the fine folks of the internet because I scored big time with this purchase.

    The jacket runs true to size (perfect arm length), his good shoulder dexterity, a decent lining that breathes, and most importantly: is durable. I wore this thing through a winter in the high desert and it was ideal. I've had no issues with abrasion climbing on rocks or moving under load on shorter hikes.

    Obviously not a good choice for long distance movement as it is heavy and doesn't pack well, and probably not the best for hardcore alpine ascents in wet/ below freezing conditions, but for short, semi-technical movements, it's perfect.

    After 6 months of use, I can say it is no worse for wear. Use some Nickwax and it retains a decent amount of water resistance. Not a huge fan of the sleeve cuff velcro fasteners, but they work well enough in warm weather. I'm assuming it was considered in the design of the jacket, so no points off.

    Overall -
    *4/5 as an all around jacket
    * 5/5 for serious outdoor enthusiasts who need a durable wind-stopper for short term pursuits.

    Great Jacket

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Height: 6'1"
    • Weight: 242lbs

    This is a really good jacket for someone that works in an environment where they are needing a light jacket that can even be worn in a business environment. I got the black on black and it looks good when I have to wear it to the office.

    great jacket

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

    I purchased this jacket and another one just like it for my husband and son for Christmas. Different sizes and colors, or course, so they wouldn't get them mixed up. They both love them and wear them quite often.

    PERFECTION TO EVERY OCCASION!!!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Height: 5'11"
    • Weight: 175lbs

    Whatever it is that you are doing, from a hike to a night out in a very cold weather this coat does it all for you, looks very nice to a night out and very comfortable and flexible for an outdoor activity, fabric is great, doesn't get dirty easily, not bulky and saggy, very well made, just awesome. even indoors it doesn't get hot.. amazing

    Almost great jacket

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 170lbs

    Unless you are a giraffe, the collar is too high. I have long (33") arms and the sleeves are too long, without Velcro to keep them off your hands. Had to return before wearing.

    Sleeves are way too long

      I'm 6 ft tall and 195 pounds. I ordered the Large and the sleeves are so long I would need the jacket tailored to be able to wear it. Makes me wonder what type of creature they used for this design. I may try the medium but not sure it's worth the effort.

      Great coat so far!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: XL
      • Height: 6'2"
      • Weight: 225lbs

      This is the go to coat for fall days in Michigan. We have yet to hit real cold but I am assuming it will serve the purpose well. I got the XL and it has more than enough room for my 6'2 225LBS frame, layering will be an options with this one. I would suggest this as a definite buy.

      Classic & classy jacket

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Large
      • Height: 5'9"
      • Weight: 230lbs

      I've been wearing TNF softshells for years; love the jackets. Plenty warm down to about 25 degrees, and does a great job shedding light rain and snow, as well as blocking wind. Not bad for a jacket without Goretex or Windstopper fabric.

      The only downside to the current Apex Bionic 2 over the original Apex Bionic is that the current model no longer has Velcro cinches at the cuff.

      It's minor niggle it's no longer there, and was likely done to cut costs ... but since the price of the Apex Bionic hasn't changed for about 10 years, it's not a deal-breaker.

      So far so good

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: XL
      • Height: 6'3"
      • Weight: 215lbs

      The jacket was received quickly, and was packaged properly.
      Seems to be a jacket that will do the job, & will definitely handle the wind.
      Fits true to size. So far, I'd say I recommend this product.

      Great Jacket

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Large
      • Height: 6'
      • Weight: 190lbs

      I have a number of shoft shells from several different outdoor brands and this one exceeds them all. This jacket is warm for temperatures above 40 degrees, blocks the wind well and is very functional for my use in the NC mountains. I purchased this to walk my dogs during the mornings during the fall and summer as well as a jacket for work. It works well for all of the above. I am 6' and 190 lbs and the fit is as expected.

      the go to coat

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: medium
      • Height: 5'8"
      • Weight: 155lbs

      this jacket goes from a top dress jacket for semi-formal occasions to the slopes with style. i couldn't be more satisfied overall with a jacket.
      this is the 7th apex bionic purchased for my growing sons and myself.
      it is true to size and the quality, comfort, durability and classic style have
      been the reason behind our dedication to the brand.
      this jacket simply does not wear out.
      after owning mine for YEARS it is still going strong.
      it is comfortable from 15-50 degrees. cant say enough about this great piece.
      thank you, back-country for offering such great prices on the brands our family buys for all our outdoor activities, be it school, sledding, skiing. this jacket covers it all. :-)

      Seems great so far

      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Xl
      • Height: 6'6"
      • Weight: 220lbs

      Perfect jacket for all occasions, great with business casual attire for work or useful as a shell for colder car camping. Too bulky to backpack with but this is my second Apex and I would purchase this again. Cinch chords on the bottom are nice to keep warmth in and it works well with the thermoball for freezing temperatures.

      Comfortable Jacket

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Small
      • Height: 5'6"
      • Weight: 140lbs

      Really nice jacket. My only complaint and the only reason I'm giving it a four star review is because the jacket shipped to me was someone else's return that had dog or cat hair all over the inside. Way to not check out a return before sending it back out Backcountry (so in reality the jacket is a five star just not Backcountry's service this time around).

      Unanswered Question

      I'm able to wash the Apex Bionic 2 Softshell Jacket like if I would be washing any other jacket?

      Unanswered Question

      So what are the differences between this new version and the old apex bionic jacket? I can see there are no velcro cuff straps anymore - but what else has changed?
