Utilizing its stretch Apex ClimateBlock technology, The North Face built the Women's Apex Bionic Softshell Jacket for protection against cold, windy weather. In addition to blocking out the wind, the Apex Bionic is highly water resistant and still maintains a comfortably level of breathability, making it great for hiking, XC skiing, or runs in cold weather. A comfortable fleece backing feels nice and smooth against your skin or baselayers, giving you fleece coziness with softshell performance, and a hem cinch cord allows you to find the perfect fit. Internal stretch comfort cuffs keep drafts from snaking up your arms. The North Face made the Apex Bionic with bluesign approved fabric for sustainable textile production.
