by fromPerfect for almost all occasions I`ve warn North Face Apex Android Hooded Jacket almost everyday since I purchased it last month and it has been GREAT! Light and breathable out in the sun or on windy days out on the beach. Keeps me warm and dry during hikes through the regional parks (so far through heavy rain & light snow, recommend zipping up those pockets if it is). Comfortable to wear while jogging. Pocket in the left arm is perfect for holding my GPS/Phone/license. The hoodie is sturdy enough to keep the rain off your face and pull cords to snug it up and prevent it from catching all the wind and making your ears cold. I would say it is an awesome jacket, would maybe get a size up to wear a lighter layer underneath for when it a little bit more then light snow.

by fromGood fall/winter jacket This jacket is an awesome wind-stopper. It is also pretty warm without being heavy, which is always a plus. The only thing I would suggest to improve is to have the hood be optional by being able to zip it on or off. It doesn't lay down on my back so it sticks out pretty far.

by fromPerfect all around jacket As a pilot, I find myself in all sorts of weather during any given day and I needed a jacket that would work for all of them. This jacket has been perfect. Heavy enough to keep the chill out, water proof enough to keep me dry while preflighting a plane in the rain, and lightweight enough to make it easy to move around in. The fit is great and even though I'm tall, the sleeves are plenty long enough.

by fromPretty Good Pretty good jacket. A bit too expensive but you do get what you pay for. I have worn it while commuting into work in bike during a DOWNPOUR and I was dry. Do note one thing: Do not leave any pockets unzipped, they water will leak in. Rode it on motorcycle as well in 50's weather and it was comfortable. Really like it. The only downside is that it does not work for any long bike rides because you will overheat in a second. Then again, that is not what it is designed for but there you go.

by fromGreat rain and wind protection jacket This is a great shell. The gray / blue jacket I have is also very stylish. I wear it both casually when it rains or I need a light layer and when cycling to protect against the elements.

by fromMy bro loved it Bought it for my brother and he totally loved it. He is super picky and I was a bit worried about the size and color (got him the gray), but it was almost like love at first sight!
