    I got this jacket as a birthday gift from my parents last month. This also happened to be my first North Face product so I didn't know what to expect from it other than the fact that it's so darn popular with kids and adults alike. I tried it in the store before they bought it and I started sweating. It's that warm. LOL. I like that it's not bulky at all and can handle temperatures as low as 42 deg and can feel comfortable all the way up to the low 60s. Around the low 30s, I used a sweatshirt for added warmth. But It feels comfortable without any extra layer when you are doing something active outdoors in the cold. I recently tried using this as an extra layer to my new NF Apex Paradigm jacket when we hit temps below freezing. Because it's so light, it really didn't add too much bulk to the Paradigm jacket. For active outdoor activities in the cold weather with effective wind protection, I would really recommend this jacket. I hope it last a few years because I love the way it looks and feels. I actually bought the black/grey color combo which looks so much better than the plain black.

    The only thing I wished it had was a stowaway hood in case you get caught in the rain. I forgot to mention that this jacket and the Apex Paradigm are both weatherproof. It repels water like a full-time raincoat. Awesome!

    I picked up this jacket for use in San Francisco and the surrounding Bay Area (Lake Tahoe included). I use this jacket for everything. It is often cloudy/drizzly/cold in SF and this jacket deals with it all. I have not tried in heavy rain, but in drizzly conditions, the DWR treatment definitely makes small drops bead right off. It also has a nice fleece-like liner inside and keeps me really warm down to 40 degrees or so. In Tahoe, I have used this with a shirt or base layer, mid later fleece, and then this jacket. I don' get clod too easily but in temps 20's - 30's I felt great (with some gloves and a beanie of course). I have not tried it skiing yet because I snowboard and to be honest it wouldn't be quite large enough (I like baggier snowboard clothing). But I have seen people who wear softshells skiing all the time. I also use this when I go to work and want a jacket that dresses up nice. With slacks, nice shoes, and a button up it looks great. I am 6' and about 190 lbs (34 in arms) and the large fits perfect. The pockets are well designed as well. The soft shell is the new "do-everything" jacket; wind/water resistent but also maleable and comfy for wearing anywhere. I highly recommend this jacket.

    This jacket is counterfeit. The first clue was that the size fit more like a Medium than the XL we ordered. When another XL wasn't available to send us, we just went and bought an Apex Bionic Soft Shell Jacket (same color) at the North Face store. Comparing them side by side showed major differences. The zippers, closures, and material were all different. The size was clearly off just like we thought. The jacket we received was absolutely fake and not the real thing.

    I wore this during my visit to Kiruna, Sweden in the Arctic Circle. It kept me nice and dry. It allows for another layer or 2 underneath it for extra warmth.

    Had my eye on this jacket for a while. Finally caught a sale at a local retailer and got one. This is a well made, quality jacket. The break in period is quick and easy as I've only had this about 1-2 days but have had the chance to wear in in different temps/weather already. It's a bit snug at first but it'll stretch and move with your body quickly.

    It's a pretty warm jacket and it holds up well against light sleet, snow, rain. The water beads on the surface similar to TNF rain jackets so it seems like it can tolerate a good amount of light to moderate rain/snow but note according to TNF this jacket isn't waterproof.

    As for the biggest thing to consider: temperature ranges. I did the "t-shirt test" last night when it was about 32F out and slightly windy . Just a tshirt under it. It kept me warm but I was still a little chilly and it was a bit drafty. With a long sleeve dress shirt the next morning in 28-30F temps with some light sleet I was dry but could still feel a chill. Standing inside a room at room temp with this jacket and just a t shirt I was sweating within 2 minutes. I live in the Northeast and we've seen temps as low as 9F some days (with feel like temp below 0F). This jacket is not going to keep you warm below freezing temps unless you're layering. You'll need a waterproof outer layer in very wet conditions and you'll need a warm layer under for below 30F. Even in high 30s I was a bit chilly in my arms with a long sleeve dress shirt and t shirt under.

    So all this said, I can say this jacket is probably best used alone (with a t shirt or long sleeve shirt) in temperatures of 40F and up. With layering (either a rain jacket or hard shell over it) you can probably take this jacket into wet, below 30F weather easily.

    Color Name: TNF BlackSize Name: Medium Verified Purchase
    This is a great lightweight jacket. I am 5'11" and about 180lbs and I went with the medium size. The jacket has a great fit and stays close to the body. It is relatively warm and I feel comfortable in it at about 32F+ and if it is really cold you can put a heavier jacket over the top of it. The pockets are good sized and I can keep a pair of gloves and a hat in the bottom ones and a notebook in the napoleon pocket. I haven't been in any downpours yet put it seems to repel light precipitation very well.

    The only complaint I have is that the right side collar comes up RIGHT under my chin and pokes me so I have to fold it down.
