Hello good clubtread people! I haven't posted on here in a long time (my bad), but I'm moving and am downsizing my gear closet. I figured I'd offer it up here first in case anyone was interested before putting it on craigslist. Admittedly the stuff is a bit dated, but is all very well kept. You could *almost* have a complete beginner pack with this stuff, except for a tent or tarp. If you want the whole shebang then I can sell it as a package for $150.
Gregory Palisades backpack
(with original documents) - $75
Size: small, 77 litres/4700 inches
weight: 3.0 kg, 6 lbs 10 oz
This is a classic pack. I didn't need as much interior space, though, so now I use an Osprey Ariel (which I quite like). It's in great shape and ready for a strong back.
North Face Blue Kazoo down sleeping bag
(with original bag and documents) - $60
Size: regular, right zip
Temp rating: -7 to 2C/20 to 35F
Original weight: 1.1kg/2 lbs 7 oz
This sleeping bag's down started to compress so last year I sent it back to TNF for restuffing. It has new feathers and is also a bit heavier than the original weight. I think the original temp rating was a bit optimistic. I've upgraded to a Marmot Helium.
Original Thermarest shortie
(not sure of the original specs, but is 1.5" thick)
No leaks of which I'm aware. Again, I've upgraded (Big Agnes insulated aircore - dreamy).
MSR Rapidfire stove with MSR pot and MSR carrying bag
This stove did me well for lots of years. I don't have the original specs on it, but it was an early attempt at an ultralight isobutane stove. It works very well. The carrying bag is a little worn, but has some years in it yet. (yes, I'm a Jetboil convert)
Send me an email if you're interested. I'm located in North Van.
Thanks for looking!
