Ultra-soft, unbelievably light, impossibly dry. The ultimate balance between softshell and hardshell, this active fit jacket moves with the body.

The North Face Apex Flex is perfect for hikers needing a fully waterproof layer and is much softer, easier to wear and quieter than classic waterproof shells. It has a stretch woven outer layer combined with Gore-tex membrane, tapered seams and a soft knit inner that will keep you warm, dry and comfortable come rain or shine. Pit zips help with extra ventilation in warmer weather and the adjustable hood will help protect your ears in windier weather. The ultimate soft shell jacket which looks awesome for casual wear or as a fully functional option when exploring the outdoors. A waterproof, breathable three-layer GORE-TEX® shell blocks out the wet to keep you dry, while a soft-knit face and stretch-knit backer delivers all the comfort of your favourite hoodie.

Using the North Face sizing guide I'm a medium - this corresponds with other clothing purchases (I'm 5ft 11in, 40in chest, 33 in waist). However I find this Apex jacket in M is really quite a slim fit (2 thin layers underneath is comfortable, a thick one less so), and with unusually long arms. I would have considered returning to exchange for L - but then the arms would be ridiculously long. On the strength of the jacket's quality and performance in heavy rain (both outstanding), I have decided I can live with it.

Amazingly (and disappointingly for a £250 jacket) there's no loop for hanging it up.

Overall, very good. Other jackets offer better value for money (and useful features such as fold-away hood) - but only something really expensive will match the quality and performance of the Apex.

I picked a very wet day to test my jacket the rain was very heavy for my walk of two hours.
At first the outer fabric with (DWR) was beading well but soon became saturated, I put kitchen towel in the pockets before I set off as I wanted to see how they performed especially the breast pocket used for mobile phone.
On returning I removed the jacket to my surprise I was dry with the exception to the cuffs and the kitchen towel in the pockets was soaked you could wring the water out.
The GORE-TEX membrane saved the day, overall the jacket fared well and felt comfortable but I’m very disappointed with the DWR treatment.
