Apex Chromium Thermal Jacket

The North Face Men's Apex Chromium Thermal Jacket strikes a stunning balance between plush comfort and weather protection for windy, rainy, and snowy days in the city. Its WindWall fabric blocks the briskest breezes in winter, and The North Face treated the fabric with DWR to fend of rain and snow. This softshell also features an incredibly soft sherpa fleece lining for warmth and smooth comfort. Adjustments at the hem and cuffs secure the fit, and one of the zippered hand pockets has a headphone port for media compatibility.

This is a nice jacket that I can easily wear casually or with slacks to a business casual office. The fit is good and the fleece lined pockets are nice.

Very happy with this jacket. It does only have 2 pockets but you know that prior to buying so can’t really make it a complaint. The fleece lining is very comfortable and the wrist Velcro stays put. The two pockets run the full length up the chest of the jacket. The only thing I’ve noticed is the zipper tends to get stuck where the material design crosses at the upper chest area and again at the neck. Not a big issue yet but wouldn’t be surprised if it because one long term. Logos are embroidered front and back. Probably should have ordered a L instead of XL but the XL waist and sleeves fall right where I like. The torso area isn’t as fit but perfect for layering underneath without feeling stuffed.

If you are looking for a jacket that combines function with fashion this is it. warm enough for most fall and winter days and provides good protection from the wind and moisture. simple design goes great with casual attire so you can wear this out to dinner if you like.

I really like this jacket! Perfect for hiking on cold days. If your looking for a casual winter jacket to wear out it may be a little light for you, but its perfect for being active outside to temps above 30F. To no fault of Backcountry, I ordered a medium which was too small for me. With their great service I was able to get the large that I needed and return the medium very painlessly. I'm very happy with my purchase!

Bought this for my boyfriend for his birthday and he loves it! North Face is a great brand and this jacket is perfect to wear by itself on chilly days or if there is a cool breeze out. The inside is lined with Fleece that is super warm and the wrist cuffs are a nice feature as well! Would definitely recommend ordering this

Purchased it for my husband, what a great jacket! Very comfortable jacket, and the soft lining keeps him nice and warm. It's not for locations like Montana or the east coast, but for California, perfect! Looks sharp, and the price was great! Pick one up...

I lost a TNF Apex jacket that I have had for years, so I decided to try out the Chromium. I have worn it on a few Colorado mornings that were well below freezing and it delivers the warmth and it looks great too. There are no interior pockets and the material is a bit more rigid than a standard Apex. The sleeves are a bit long, but I like it that way.

Classic North Face material

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

The outer material that the Apex jackets are made with has a very distinct feel. I think that they feel kind of bulky and squishy. I'm not sure how I feel about them personally, but they are a staple of the North Face line and they come with technology and experience that you would expect from the North Face brand.
