    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?
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.
    Romans 8:18,21-22

    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.
