Description

Whether he's headed to the blustery Oregon Coast on a school field trip or you're taking the family snowshoeing through Mount Hood National Forest, The North Face TNF Apex Bionic Jacket for Boys provides reliable, protective warmth wherever winter adventure may lead.

Featuring Apex Universal technology, this versatile jacket boasts a 0 CFM permeability rating for 100% windproof protection. Water resistant and highly breathable, this durable soft shell fleece keeps the elements out while still allowing interior moisture to escape, for temperature regulating warmth and dryness from the inside out. Designed with stretch capabilities, he can twist, reach and move without any stiffness or extra bulk to slow him down.

Lightweight and packable, the Apex Bionic is easy to stuff in a backpack or bag for extra protection when he needs it. On its own or as a mid-layer under his shell, The North Face Boys' TNF Apex Bionic Jacket is perfect for cold-weather hikes, cross country ski trips, snow shoe treks and overcast windy days exploring tide pools on the coast.

Excellent Fall/Spring Jacket
October 20, 2010

My husband and I have the adult versions of this jacket, the Apex Bionic Jacket. We have had ours for 3-4 years and are still wearing it. The quality, durability, and rain/wind proof of this coat is amazing and this holds for the youth size as well. If you are looking for a coat that you can wear all year round, this is the one. We live in Iowa where we have extremely cold winters and we still wear it all year round. For myself, when I run to the store and just have to get in and out of the car, I always opt for this coat instead of my huge winter coat. It is much more comfortable and less bulky to wear in stores and in your car. As for my husband, he hates bulky coats (unless he is skiing), so this is the perfect fit for him as well. Since we loved our coat this much, we decided to purchase it for our son for all the reasons listed above. He is in 5th grade, weighs about 82 lbs and is average for his age. We purchased the XL size so it would fit him for a couple of years and it is looking like it will fit for 3-4 years! This is great but it is way bigger than I thought. That might help in determining the right size for you child. This coat is well worth the money, adults or kids.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Great value, Cons: Cost

Great jacket for active kids
December 02, 2012

Terrific jacket for active boys. It's warm but not bulky. My son uses this daily. He rides his bike to school and this jacket is perfect for the cold and sometimes wet mornings. He can pack it in his backpack in the afternoon if needed. My son is tall for his age (9) and a medium fits him well.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance

Great jacket, & waterproof!
January 18, 2010

I simply love this jacket, wears well, and with an extra layer you will do just fine.

The perfect jacket
September 29, 2009

Since I love my own Apex Bionic jacket so much, I bought one for my son and it was money well-spent. The jacket is lightweight and breathable, yet is also waterproof (to a point...but that point takes quite a while to reach) and windproof. It's the perfect jacket to wear when you're not sure what the weather's going to be like, or if it's prone to change without notice (as it often does here in the north GA mountains). Highly recommended.

I got one of this jacket for myself my son like it so much I got one for him, I was amazed they make the very same style jacket for boys and with the same quality and features; fit, stylish, and value, the only small complaint for this jacket would be that it lacks an internal pocket, I would surely recommend this jacket to a friend.

Nice Looking & lightweight
March 24, 2010

The seams on the inside of arms were scratchy as per my son. He is tall for 10 & I felt the jacket was a little short even though not small anywhere else.

My son loves the jacket, but the sizing is a bit off from what we are used to. I think it is a bit large, but blessedly my son doesn't care, and hopefully he will grow into it before he wears it out!

I ordered this jacket for my son and it couldn't be more perfect. The jacket is warm, but thin and comfortable. Just a heads up, North Face jackets do tend to run a little larger than other brands.

My son hasn't taken this off days
April 14, 2011

Bought a medium for my 9 yr old who is on the small side and it's a bit big but it's all good for growing room and hand me downs. I have 3 boys and a girl and almost always buy North Face because it lasts forever and is always in style. This jackets great because it's perfect for this cold spring were having and also will be good in the winter because it's not bulky and can be used as a layer. It's also nice that it looks a little more dressy and looks good for restaurants, church etc.

Excellent jacket, runs big!
August 28, 2012

This is such a good looking jacket! I can't comment on the warmth because it's too hot to wear it yet but I spoke with a coworker who has the adult size and he loves it. I ordered this one for my 5 year old son and ordered his normal clothing size and it's BIG. Really too big but he loves it and I hate to send it back for a smaller size in case he has a growth spurt over winter. It looks fine with the sleeves rolled into a cuff so that's what I plan to do. Oh and shipping was instant, I think I had it in two days, and Altrec had the best price anywhere. I am a bigtime comparison shopper!

Perfect spring coat!
May 07, 2013

I bought this for my 10 year old son, and he loves it. He is tall and I bought him a L. It is roomy, but still very wearable - with plenty of room to grow into it. The color is just great. He selected the black and green and it is vibrant! He did not want a traditional fleece, so this was the perfect option. The inside is soft, but the outside is windproof. A great option for the colder spring days!

Pros: Great design, Build quality

Perfect Coat!!
February 06, 2010

The coat is great and fits perfect. It arrived quickly and my son has worn it everyday since.
