Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product Bought this Apex Flex jacket for a very wet trip to Ireland! Performed extremely well against rain, sleet, hail and wind! I'm 6'2" with a slim frame...except the dad-bod waist! The large fit perfect with room for a lightweight down jacket under it for warmth. I love the active fit of the jacket, as most other NF softshell jackets are too boxy and short for me! Arm length is longer than usuall but perfect for the taller folks like me! Pit zips are a great feature as it allowed me to dump excess heat with ease and still stay dry as a bone! Worth the price in my opinion!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from NorthFace does it again!!! This is an amazing product, have been looking for a fully waterproof rain jacket for several years -- the problem has always been that such raincoat are not breathable, until now! This is a great product -- breathable and comfortable lining on interior, lightweight, but still fully waterproof with hood and stylish. I didn't know it was possible to have all these together. I'm 6 foot 4 inches, 200 lbs, and got the large, which is very comfortable for me. XL would have been too big. There's still room for me to wear a thick shirt underneath. Have already worn this multiple times because it's rainy in SLC, Utah, where I'm from.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from city slickin' i am 220lb 6'0, 46 chest / 36-38 waist, i usually wear large and thus, purchased a large. I though it was a little tight in the chest, but kept it and agree with reviews relaying this is a somewhat heavy shell, mild stiffness & stretch, and will definitely keep you dry (i wore it 6+ hours in and out of rain at the Kentucky Oaks and was bone dry after a day in the blowing, cold rain). My final point--this jacket looks very slick, and although it will perform admirably for a cool hike, it is best suited for nasty city weather in which you want to look your best while staying dry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Design for the slim in mind I hope it would fit me like the tnf canyonlands sweats i had bought last year. I had gotten L and XL sizes, this L is an exact overlay for the size L. Fits like a glove to me. The length is longer than the canyonlands sleeves, but the velcro ties worked great. This is my first Gortex setup in 20 years. It is much lighter than the severe weather outer gear I had. Less bulky and more slim and shape forming. I love it. I got the tibetan orange so it would stand out from the wardrobe of black and blues i have. It is gonna be a great after winter thru spring jacket for sure. I am gonna write my name in it, less someone steals it from me. Thanks TNF for making this jacket!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Coat I bought this jacket immediately after receiving email from TNF about its release. I have worn TNF products and love their soft shell jackets. The only thing I wished for was the Gore-Tex version. Now they have it. After receiving one, I ordered 3 more in different colors to replace my fleet of other jackets. I wear this jacket everywhere, rain or shine. It performed beautifully with skiing and snowmobiling in Colorado. I wear it to work on cool days with or without rain. I followed the care instructions and was able to clean my jacket of a small spot from the snowmobile engine by using washing machine and dryer to reactivate the waterproofing of the outer shell. It didn't affect the performance one bit. This is the coat to replace all coats.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Jacket Bought this during a work trip to OR, and it was perfect. Looks decent enough to wear into the office, waterproofing worked wonders during the constant rain while I was there. Also survived me hiking down a mountain, unfortunately I can't say the same For my shoes....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great jacket I bought this jacket last week and I am very impressed with it's versatility!! Yesterday we had that nasty wet/melting snow and the jacket kept me nice and dry the whole time and today I went for a 10 km walk at 2 degrees outside and it was pretty windy but I stayed warm with only a t-shirt under the jacket and absolutely no wind came through either !! It is by far my favorite jacket ever and I already own quite a few north face so in my book it means something for sure

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great jacket. It does what it says it will do. I went for my walk yesterday. It was cold (43 degrees and 20 mph wind) and this jacket worked great. It really blocked the wind. When I put the hood up I immediately felt the wind stop on my neck. You need to layer up to keep warm as this jacket is made to be water proof and wind proof, not to keep you warm on cold days.

I'm amazed the weight is "unavailable". I'd be interested in this for backpacking but certainly need to know whether it's heavier than my current shell (TNF HyVent 2.5L, large), which is a shade over 7.5 oz.

Asked by: PennineWay
This jacket weighs 24 ounces.

Would you recommend this jacket for backpacking trips?

Asked by: Breeeetiverson2
I wouldn't, It's comfortable, and the stretch is great, but weight wise it's a little too heavy, and the insulation would leave you sweaty during any non winter backpacking. for a backpacking jacket I would use layering system, find a lightweight gore tex shell and have a seperate insulating puffy or fleece jacket underneath. One you can remove if you get too warm.
