So I'm in the start to middle of my weight loss journey. I know come this fall my stuff will no longer fit and I'm trying to get a list of things together of what I like for replacements when I get down to my new weight.

I went into the sportsmen's warehouse here in town and looked at the sitka gear and was able to compare the grinder hoodie to the fanatic and which one I liked better but when I was looking for the apex hoodie they only had the light weight hoodie.

So kinda looking for input on what the differences are between the apex and light weight. And anyone's experiences with either.

I'm unfamiliar with any of these, sorry. I primarily use First Lite brand and off-brand in non-essential clothing.

No problem I'm not limiting my self to just sitka but seemed to like the feel of there stuff when I was in store looking at it. Found a group on Facebook that's a sitka garage sale basically guys selling of lightly used sitka gear. Also found a group for kuiu and first lite.

Apex hoody was a favorite of mine the last two years. Great early to mid season option and on top of a base layer it’s good for late season layering.

one great thing about losing weight vs gaining... loose cloths are comfortable ,tight ones are not.

SKRE has some decent sales going on in there outlet clothing.

you might like their kaibob hoodie. think it runs about 150 when not on sale. or the mad trapper for 49
