      I am a professional squirrel tracker that routinely wanders off the beaten path in search of the big one. Before you think I am hunting the squirrels I must say that I am doing this to befriend them. This jacket keeps me warm and dry on even the coldest and wettest nights in the wilds of central North Carolina. After purchasing this jacket I have seen an exponential increase in the size of my circle of small mammal friends. I am able to track longer, faster and higher. Thanks Northface. I couldn't have done it without you!

      TNF ruined once of their most iconic jackets by removing such a simple thing as the velcro sleeves. This is the one thing that for people who actually use their jackets both in urban and outdoor settings, it matters greatly. I've hiked up the sleeves while cross country skiing, tightened them to make them windproof on High Sierra mountain tops, adjusted them to fit perfectly over a watch and sleeve when on a night on the town. Now TNF is no different than jackets from every other company with elastic cuffs that will ultimately stretch and ruin the fit and function. It's not a jacket I can depend on and will not buy another one. The rubber vs embroidered logo is not a big deal but it just shows TNF is trying to extract ever dollar out of the jacket now instead of making it a jacket worthy of your dollars.

          Comments about The North Face Apex Bionic 2 Mock Neck Full-Zip Jacket:

          I am glad that TNF finally introduced an XS size for the updated Apex Bionic size! I am 5'7" and a half and the XS is just a LITTLE too long in the arms. It is not a deal breaker for me, because I folded them inwards a just a tad. The construction is nice and warm and the jacket looks very stylish! The jacket is definitely more stiff than the Denali, because of the material so I recommend unzipping it when sitting down.

                    Had one of these and it took a long time to wear it out, so not a bad value.
                    This jacket can do some things others can't, but at the same time it poorly attempts to do some things it shouldn't.
                    It takes about 20 minutes of solid rain to completely soak it through the untapped seams, which is very water repellent. Unfortunately waterproof membrane only allows the water to dry on one side at a time, so dry it off inside out.
                    Having owned this thing, I decided this kind of jacket wasn't for me. It doesn't stretch as much as a regular fleece, and it isn't very warm without additional layers, but it takes a long time to dry out if/when it eventually gets wet through the un-taped seams.
                    I think a stretchy fully waterproof shell that zips into a fleece when you need it, Or a more stretchy more breathable and better ventilated highly wind/water repellent shell that zips into a fleece and does not attempt to insulate and dries out super fast if it does get wet would hit the needs of this jackets users better.
                    Bottom line they tried to make what people asked for, and used good construction practices, but this thing isn't really the right object.
