The Boys Apex Bionic Jacket by The North Face. Made from virtually windproof and waterproof fabric on the exterior, this soft shell is ideal for trekking, skiing, and snowshoeing in inclement weather. Slight stretch-elastane fabric promotes ease of movement and a soft fleece backer offers a comfortable fit for cold, windy excursions.
The North Face Apex Bionic Jacket is a super-versatile coat that works as well in the spring and fall as it does in the winter. Apex Bionic fabric does a great job at keeping most moisture away and is also very breathable. That means that he can wear it alone in milder temperatures or under a jacket when he is skiing or playing in the snow. To top it all off the Apex Bionic is windproof. He'll be amazed at how warm he stays in this low-bulk, comfortable softshell jacket.
The North Face Apex Bionic jacket offers kids great soft-shell performance when it's cold and damp outside. It's well suited for skiing, snowboarding and even hiking when the mercury drops.

I purchased this jacket for my son for spring/fall seasons and its wonderful! Light, warm, keeps wind and water out, its flexible and great for him to play outside in. My son is 6 years old and average size for his age, the small was actually a little to big for him, but he will grow into it, and can wear it now if I roll the sleeves a little. This coat is just like the adult coat, if you own TNF Apex bionic you know how comfy and light these are. Super happy with this purchase and am ALWAYS happy with Backcountry's customer service and awesome prices. Two thumbs up!
My son has had his black TNF Apex for two years. We may be able to squeeze a third put of it. He's a small 8 yr old and wears a S. Even after MANY washes, this jackets looks brand new! He wears it every day in spring and fall and we've had a mild winter so he's worn it with a sweatshirt underneath all winter. Great jacket, worth every penny even at full price. Not particularly warm so I'd say it's not a ski jacket unless you're spring skiing. Very waterproof though.
I have bought 2 of these for my oldest son and both have worn very well. I wash it frequently because my son wears it ALL the time, I mean he literally sleeps in it sometimes and regardless of the repeated washings, it still looks new. I bought a second one because he outgrew the first one. Highly recommend, very worth the money! Even bought the women's version for myself and experiencing the same, very durable construction and material.
This jacket just looks really sharp. The quality of the material is good and the colors are true to the picture. My son plans on wearing it as a winter coat and with a sweatshirt it should be fine for everyday use. He will not use it for outdoor sports.
There needs to be velcro or elastic on the cuffs because the sleeves are too long!
My son ended up with a torn sleep after only wearing it 4 times!
