User Review: The North Face Men's Apex Bionic Jacket
Price Paid: £69
I've got the 2007 version with the drawstring waist and velcro on the cuffs. Would recommend it, although on a recent visit to Blacks it seems that the material has been updated. Get the feeling that's a positive update. Definitely keeps the wind out if you use the velcro on the wrists. As other reviewers have noted, the arms on the XL are on the long side.
Not the warmest of jackets, although I was fine with a fleece and t under it in -8 c (when moving) on a recent trip to the lake district. Seems fine in the snow too... Wouldn't be my choice in the rain, not that I don't think it would perform, just wouldn't take the chance...
Liked it enough to buy my Dad one for Christmas.
