Re: Russell outdoors raintamer jacket and pant??
I'm not sure about the raintamer, but I can attest to the quality of the Russell APX G2 L5 Cyclone rain gear. My brother and I each picked up a set from gander Mountain a few months ago while it was on clearance. We used it exclusively during our coastal bear hunt a couple weeks ago. We were on a 10 day hunt with rain 8 out of the 10 days. The gear kept us dry and was tough enough to last several trips into "jurassic park" without any rips or tears. It's not not noisy like some rain gear, and it flexes as you move. I can't give a lot of information about the packability because we were alwyas wearing it, but it is light, and truthfully I can't see that you would have any issue compressing it into a backpack.
We definitely put the gear through the ringer and it came home looking like new. If the raintamer is anything like the Cyclone, it's high quality gear.
