Nice

This jacket is very nice. I'm glad I bought it. It is a softshell material. It is said to be windproof and water resistant - I haven't tested those.

This jacket is very nice. I'm glad I bought it. It is a softshell material. It is said to be windproof and water resistant - I haven't tested those.

The fit is "active", which seems to be just about a half size smaller than normal. I am a solid XS (5'2" 107#, small busted). I bought a SM because the XS fit was spot on when I only had one shirt on, but when I added another layer suddenly the arms were stiff and it just felt too small. So the SM hangs on me a bit if I don't layer up, but I figured I'd most likely be wearing this jacket on days when also layering. The arms are a bit long - not awful but about 1 inch longer than they'd be on 'normal' sized women. The length comes down to about the bottom of my butt - again not awful, but about an inch or two longer than on a 'normal' body. I'd love to see this is a Petite size - it is nice when clothes fit right. This isn't something that can be altered easily but a novice, though I don't feel the need to alter. I really do like it, mostly because it is warm and windproof. I plan to wear it on the boat wear the wind can make me so cold, and also around town as a casual jacket. I also would love to see the option for a removable hood or one stuffs in the collar. I don't have any need for a hood in town, but I'd love the option to have one when the wind picks up on the water. I also like the bright colors for on the water (just in case that wind takes me in to the water :)

After years my favorite jacket finally started to wear out. I decided it was time to order another apex bionic jacket but was very disappointed when it arrived. They have updated it to be longer which would be ok but they made the waist so narrow that it fits only a light weight shirt under it and just barely at that. Forget a sweater. I'm not a large person 5' and 120 pounds but the medium fits me like the small used to. North Face I get the wanting to look good on but it still needs to be particle to wear.

          Bought this jacket as a spring/fall jacket for days when a sweatshirt isn't enough but not cold enough for a full coat. Its very wind resistant and holds up well in the rain. It's very stiff at first but it gets better as you wear it more. Sizing does run a bit small in the torso but sleeve length is good. It also has a nicely soft lining. The color is exactly as it looks online, hard to describe but similar to a dusty purple. Would definitely recommend, in fact i might buy another in a different color!

          Comments about The North Face Apex Bionic 2 Softshell Jacket Women's, TNF Black, M:

          It's been years since I bought a new North Face. While the quality is still superior, this size of this jacket is awkward on me. The jacket fits just right around my hips, but is too big in the rest of the jacket. Being 5'2", it's always hard finding a jacket that isn't too long, and unfortunately, this one is especially too long on my arms. That makes me feel awkward and a bit manly. Unless I missed it, I wish these jackets came in petite sizes. Good jacket though.

                      I absolutely love this jacket! It's flattering, comfortable and keeps me warm. I think it will be great for spring in Minnesota. I've worn it in 35 to 40 degree weather and it kept me warm enough however, I wouldn't recommend it for anything colder than that. It sheds water quite nicely and does a great job of blocking the wind. I'm 5'9" 140 lbs with a lean build and the medium was a perfect fit. I really like that the arms on this jacket are longer, too!

                        I love this jacket! It is contoured and not "boxy" and great for Fall/Spring weather.

                          Its ok of a jacket purchased one for me and another for my daughter. I find its is light weight, but would have prefered it had a softer shell.
