    Paul, where's the APEX?

    Can you source this again for the Jarbridges? Or is it gone for good?

    I got approved a couple weeks ago to get more this year but the price is up there a good step from our normal. We can get it but it would be on a special order basis.

    APEX is a variation of Climashield. It's lighter, warmer, and packs smaller. Paul used it in a few Jarbridges. I lucked up and got one from a member here recently and it friggin rocks!
    I have a regular Climashield Jarbridge as well, and there is most definetely a difference.

    No Cons for Apex, only Pros.

    Correct me if I'm wrong Mr. Paul.

    Interesting that there is that much dif. As far as the warmth to weight goes, Thru-Hiker posts that it has a CLO of .82 for a sq.yd thick enough to weigh 1 oz. Which is almost identical to the rating of XP if mem serves. In fact, even Combat had a CLO of about .76/0z if mem serves, still not way down.

    Am I correct in the above? But maybe it compresses more and maintains loft after compression longer and better? Is all Climashield silicon coated?
    Apparently, signature that I used from 2006 no longer tolerated so now deleted.

    I'm not much on measuring technicals, but I own an Apex Jarbridge and a regular Climashield Jarbridge, and the Apex is lighter, more compressible, and I haven't been cold in it yet. When I go backpackin, the Apex is in my pack. I like it more than the old Phoenix I had.
