Russell APXg2 L2 Wind Control Pullover Review

Editor: Mike

Basic Description:

Mid Layer wind and scent control pullover hunting jacket.

Just the Facts:

Fabric: Body – 100% Polyester; Shell Trim – 84% Polyester, 16% Spandex

Key areas are double layered for enhanced wind resistance. Scent-Stop technology provides odor control. Dri-Power® technology wicks moisture away from the skin. Flatlock stitching reduces bulk along seam lines.


This mid layer jacket / pullover has been my base layer and mid layer of choice for the last several hikes I have gone on.

The temperatures have ranged from 5 Degrees up to 50 degrees. The weather has varied from sunny to down right driving rain and snow.

I have been looking for a mid layer that moved well with my body, was breathable, and kept the wind out.  I picked this Wind Control Pullover up for those promises.

I have been pleased to find it did exactly what was promised. I can walk into a high wind and not feel it pierce into my body. I have also really enjoyed how it stretches and moves with my body.

I did get into a very nasty rain storm with this as my top layer, my mistake, and found after 30 minutes I was soaked. It prevents wind, not rain.


This is a versatile piece of clothing, that I plan to use in many ways: Base Layer, Mid Layer, and even as a jacket for bow hunting.

It moves well with my body, seems to really cut the wind, and keeps me pretty warm.

If you can get this item on sale, go for it.

What they could do better:

I think it is still a little over priced.

Give me more camo options for when I want to use this as a top layer
