    Russell APXg2 Gear

    Has anyone had any luck with this gear and does it run small or is the size pretty on?

    I have been interested in Russell APX2 Gear as well, but not sure about it! I've been looking at First Lite, made in Ketchem, Id. This gear looks really good abit Price. What are you're guys thought on first lite?

    I have had a chance to try on the Russell's stuff and it seemed to have a pretty standard fit to me. A little bigger than than their shirts of the same size but not that much different. Compared to the other Russell's stuff the rain gear fit pretty close to the same. I would say it fits a little snugger than the Browning Pac Lite rain gear that I have now. The Russell's pants did have a good fit in the crotch and around the lower leg. I find lots of rain gear hangs low in the crotch and loose around your boots, not great for quiet stalking.
    People in SUV's and suburbs will kill more game animals than a man with a bow, ever could.

    I just picked up a Gale Jacket L4 and L3 zephyer pants. The Jacket fits a touch big but I believe that's so you can layer plenty underneath. So a little on the big size for a Large but still a large. I thought the L3 pants were terrible. Awkward cut with a really low waist. I'm fairly fit and find that most mountaineering cut gear fits well, so I was surprised at the fit of the L3 pant an sent them back. The jacket's a keeper though.

    I've been using it for the past two seasons and love it. It's quiet, sheds water fairly well, and is pretty rip-resistant. If you hunt in colder weather, you'll want a good fleece, wool, or down insulating layer, but the gear is excellent.

    P.S. Yes, Russell does sponsor our show, but 100% honest, this would be my gear of choice regardless, especially considering the price compared to similar products.

    The Zephyrs. I didn't have the problem with fitting that you did. I guess we're all built a little different.

    They are also going to start coming in some patterns designed more for the western hunter for 2011, like Kings mountain shadow, I can't wait.

    New pattern! I've been wondering because it seems they quit making most of the apxg2 stuff in the brush camo. I have a bunch of the pieces, all in MO Tree stand, Gale coat, zephyr pants, Tundra top and bottom, and the L3 fleece. I am short and stocky(5'8" 195lbs.) and the large in everything seems to fit well. I hope they come out with the Kings Desert Shadow also. I am going to pick up some firstlite baselayers in the Max1 for early season and insulation for late season.

    You'll be able to get select pieces in Realtree AP, Realtree Max-1, Realtree Max 4, Kings Mountain Shadow, and the Mossy Oaks flavors they have had in the past. I don't see any in Desert Shadow, but you never know.
