DWR tech

Durable Water Repellent
DWR (Durable Water Repellent) is a coating that is applied to fabrics which makes them water-resistant, or hydrophobic. A DWR finish doesn't interfere with breathability, which makes it perfect for adverse conditions in the backcountry.

The North Face WindWall

The North Face WindWall
WindWall is a fleece fabric that retains the comfort, flexibility and breathability of traditional fleece while eliminating wind chill, which enhances warmth. The unique bonding process cuts 80 - 95% of wind.

Product Reviews
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Needed item, Poor fit Tried 5 different Apex Flex jackets (1, 2, 3 and XS and S). But as other reviewers note the sizing and sleeve width is terrible. I wear TNF XS but this one I needed a small. The size worked everywhere except the underarms and sleeve are super tight. I could not layer anything warm under without restricting movement. The arms/sleeves are so constrictive that the jacket is not usable. The sleeves were also too long for me (but that is the case for almost every jacket I have bought). This jacket fills an important and necessary niche but TNF needs to get better designers for the larger and smaller features of this jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from should have purchased my true size, exchanging I should have purchased my normal size small but read reviews and ordered a medium and it's big all over including the arm width. I am athletic built, 125, 5'3 and weight train so my arms have muscle and even with a heavy sweater the arms were big. It's much darker in person but no biggie. I purchased for hiking and any rainy day. The material is a little heavy for summer downpours but maybe with a light long sleeve layer under you won't sweat like crazy on a hike. I'm going to exchange as I wanted a gortex jacket and I really like the simple look of the jacket so I will be exchanging for a small. Hopefully it will perform as expected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Slimming and high quality. The jacket is on the slim side. Does fit TTS with a hoodie underneath, but feels slightly snug. I upsized to have a slightly roomier fit to give me more options in what I wear this with depending on the seasons. This is a decent thickness. Not super heavy, but not thin or too light weight either.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love it :) I was looking for something that was about as waterproof as I could get and wouldn't turn me into a sail in the wind and was so happy when I received this jacket!! It fits beautifully, the sleeves are nicely fitted and actually long enough so I can reach up without exposing much wrist. Four leaf clover heather is pretty & unique and I couldn't be more pleased! Keeps me warm and dry in the wind & rain I've encountered so far. For size reference- I am 5'8" 135 pounds and ordered a Medium. The slim fit is awesome and still has room for a thin layer underneath if I wanted, but nothing too bulky. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Hood is small. Pictures don't show accurate color Jacket fit as expected. A little more boxy than I thought it would be based on the other reviews. The hood was a lot smaller than I wanted. With my hair in a pony tail the hood didn't even reach my face. I ordered the gray jacket and it showed up several shades darker than what was shown in the picture. Ended up returning it because I wear glasses and the hood size was a deal breaker for a jacket in this price range.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Purchase to Date I originally bought this jacket because I have recently lost some weight and my old one was too big. But I had NO IDEA how much of an upgrade I was purchasing. It's not heavy, but still thick enough to both block and keep you warm in wind. Highly recommend for any city dweller.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great jacket but poor hood design Jacket is high quality and fits true to size. HOWEVER, the designers of this jacket failed terribly with the hood. It is way too short! I wear my hair in a pony tail often, especially during outdoor activities, and the hood only covers about 3/4's of my head which obviously won't protect me from the rain. What's the point of having a rain jacket if it won't even cover my entire head? I have never had this issue with any of my jackets before and I don't have a large head. Sadly, I will be returning. I am glad I came across Mountain Steals website though! Awesome pricing and look forward to purchasing from them again!
