Apex Bionic 2 Softshell Jacket

Even when the wind is howling and the temperatures drop, you still have a run to go on, errands to finish, and a dog to walk. The North Face Women’s Apex Bionic 2 Jacket defies the chill with luxurious coziness. Supremely soft fleece lines the interior for next-to-skin comfort, and the DWR-treated WindWall exterior is windproof and highly water-resistant to protect you from the elements. When you're out and about, you can stash a phone in the hidden zippered chest pocket and keep your paws warm in two zippered hand pockets. A hem cinch cord and internal stretch comfort cuffs help seal out cold air, and the generous stretch of the jacket move and breathe with you whether you’re on a misty hike, snowshoe trek, or just zipping around town.

  • A cozy softshell for fall hikes, snowshoe treks, and around-town wear
  • Moves, stretches, and breathes when you're on the move
  • Windproof and water-resistant WindWall exterior thwarts woolly weather
  • Internal stretch cuffs and hem cinch cord seal out cold drafts
  • Item #TNF02G8

I bought this as a replacement for my old Apex jacket that I bought 10 years ago. I honestly do not think this runs small - I am 5'6", 145lbs with a 38" bust and 29" waist. The medium fit me perfectly, with room to spare for layering. The stretch is really nice, and the jacket is well constructed.

DISCLAIMER: I bought this jacket a while ago but have only gotten around to reviewing it now. But all in all, this jacket is my go-to for the Texas cold. For the avg fall/winter day here, it does amazing keeping me warm w/o being too heavy or bulky.

I Ordered this Jacket in an Aztec Blue Heather Color a size L. The Jacket Does run Small!! I called in to Customer Service on My Options on what to do?!? Kayla at Backcountry Was AMAZING ~ & Very Helpful!!! Unfortunately they did not have a larger size. So she sent me a free return label to return. I WILL BE Watching to see if they get more in in a Larger size. Thank You Kayla for your Kindness & Working hard to find a comparable Jacket!!!

great, but FUMY jacket

you need to air this baby out for a week outdoors before you bring it indoors. was wondering what that fumy smell was when i went to work with this jacket, and realized it was the jacket itself other than that, the jacket is a great wind blocker.

Love the Apex Bionic 2. Great light weight jacket, perfect for our windy area. It does run small, almost 2 sizes. I had to return and reorder a different type though. I need a jacket with some stretch and this one doesn't have any at all, so when i sat down it rode up. Other than that i really liked it. Backcountry helped me out like they always do! Thank you

Helpful comment! Thanks for sharing, You probably just saved me lots of time! Gonna keep looking.

Thank You for this comment!! Unfortunately I had the same problem. Love this Jacket tho!!!

I got this jacket for a gift because I have one and absolutely love it! I wear it practically everyday. It is very warm and is great at blocking the wind. It is by far one of my favorites!

Uncomfortable. Stiff feeling. hard to zip. the Heather type is totally different than the other color I have. The small fits in the other colors, so beware if the color has heathered in the name, it will be stiffer and uncomfortable and hard to zip. Probably go to a medium if you normally wear a small. Returning and having to pay shipping so not very happy with that. My first purchase from here and my last....I do not like paying return shipping when I feel the product was misrepresented...as in the heather type colors are different feeling products....

I just got it today....woowyay!!! The first thing I really like that they packed the jacket in the box neatly. The second thing is the size fits me very well, and its color is very nice. The third thing is it's a super warm jacket, water-resistant as well. But I'm a little bit disappointed because the material is kinda stiff, and it looks "boxy" when I put it on. Anyways, I still like it. It's the best jacket I've ever had so far. I would highly recommend it.

I love this jacket! I was wanting wind proof water proof but also stylish for travel. This is my go to jacket for any inclement weather and still perfect for a Texas winter. It' covers all weather and also my behind! It's cut a bit longer than my other jackets and that is awesome. I bought it specifically for a trip to AK in the fall. With a layer it will protect and keep me warm in anything. I am also using it for a trip to Chicago where Autumn weather can be widely varied. I didn't find the fit small but I buy an XL for my middle age figure.

I love how this jacket fits, overall. I don't find the body too boxy, or the sleeves too long, as others have reported. One thing I don't care for is the height of the collar; I find it slightly too tall. Unless the jacket is fully zipped up, the collar is constantly poking my neck and hitting my cheeks. I find myself tucking the collar under so it's out of my way. I bought this in heather black, and the color is really nice; I have so many black jackets, I wanted something slightly different but still very versatile.

I first ordered this color in the shady blue heather -- it looks too much like jeans with jeans, so it went back for the balsam green. Like other reviewers, I agree that the sleeves are long, but for me that's a great feature as I often have a hard time with length. I also agree that it runs a little small, and as a 'tweener was glad I ordered up. The jacket looks sleek, not bulky (though it certainly is not meant for light packing or shoving into a bag), and is joyful for Baltimore's spring winds. I'm already excited for fall.

I purchased this jacket for a birthday gift. While the jacket looks great the bottom of the zipper is splitting and coming undone. It goes back together easily enough so we'll keep watching to see if there are continuing issues. Person I bought the jacket for loves the fit, look and color.

unfortunate return

This jacket turned out to be a lot stiffer than expected and the arms were so long, cuffing then was not even possible. Besides had I been able to cuff them it would have ruined the look of the jacket. Unfortunately this will be a return. I've never had trouble with arm length before.

Perfect for mild/medium weather

Bought this as a gift to my wife as she didn't have anything that I would classify as a medium weight jacket. This jacket is ideal for areas where the temps like to fluctuate between 25-60 degrees. It provides enough protection from the elements while out and about in short intervals (ideal for travel), but really hits the mark between 45-60 degrees where you just want to keep from feeling cold. The measurements directions for this were spot on, just remember to base your decision to purchase off the largest measurement comparison across all categories.

I bought this jacket because I wanted a sharp looking jacket that could keep up with my outdoor pursuits. It delivered! This jacket held up strong on a rogue super rainy 4-days in Los Angeles, CA. It was very windy but the shell gave me some good protection. It does require some layers underneath for true cold temps--i.e. I currently wear it in the 20 degree winter temps of Utah but with my nano puff or fleecy underneath and it works great for a brisk walk outside on my lunch hour. Some people I know who also have this jacket find it to be a bit "boxy" in the shoulders but I like the cut. A really great investment for a soft-shell. Got a gear question?

Your super hot in that jacket!

I am having trouble finding a definitive answer. In ALL pictures I look at of the 'rabbit grey' color, it looks as though it has a hint of purple in it also? Is that the case? I don't want to purchase and have to pay to return it. Thanks in advance!
