I was looking at Russell outdoor apex gear. Is there any one that uses the stuff.

The only piece I have is a apxg2 pullover. Zip neck. I used it on a fishing trip in Wyoming and a pheasant hunt. Both in November. It was a really nice piece of gear. I really cant compare it to anything but for the price I would buy more of the gear.

I really like the APXG2 line.
Its not quite as expensive as Zitka. I have components for L1, L2, L3,L4. And i just aquired the outer rain gear layer (Zephur i think)
I have yet to put all 5 layers together... it would have to be a really nasty day.
I have had to get everything 1 piece at a time, but if you shop around you can find some pretty decent deals.
I used it extensively in Idaho last fall for 15 days, it is lightweight, non binding, water repellant, windproof, good camo pattern.
Pricey yes, worth it yes.

BTW: I am not affiliated with Russle in any way shape or form, just like the gear.

It is really nice hunting gear, I don't have a bad thing to say about it

I'm with all of these guys...I have always used King's gear because of the price, and was a little hesitant to try Russell. Now that I've tried it, I absolutely love it and plan on fully converting! Colors also don't fade when washing like most of the other brands do, all in all I'm very impressed.
