User Review: The North Face Men's Apex Bionic Jacket
Source: bought it used
Price Paid: $60
The North Face Apex series has been one of the best jacket series I have found on the market. It's light weight and ability to provide protection is perfect.
- Light weight
- Warm, doesn't allow wind to cut thru it.
- Sometimes the zipper sticks
The fitting for this series jacket is spot on. It's a stretchy material allowing you to wear a base layer and another shirt, and still fit under your outer shell.
When moving this is the jacket I more often than not reach for. It's truly a great jacket. I'll wear a base and this soft shell while moving allowing for complete range of motion, and a breathable outer layer.
When waterproofed, will with stand most light rain and the material does well while climbing. Surprisingly I have caught this jacket on a rock outcropping while climbing and the stretchy material allows some give so that the arm won't rip.
Hands down I would buy this jacket again and again. High recommend it, never been cold or wet with this jacket on!
