*Marmot Helium 900 Fill 15 Degree Sleeping Bag*

Retail: $370
My Price: $225 + S&H

This top-of-the-line mummy sleeping bag has remarkable 900 fill and is
certified down to 15 degrees.  It’s clean and pleasantly aromatic because I
have pampered it in my apartment and on the trail.  It has been properly
maintained: fully extended--not compacted--to preserve loft, away from
temperature extremes, and away from damaging UV rays. I have made only one
repair: 3/4” wide & long. (see the photo entitled “Helium Repair” and look
for a square swatch of blue ripstop nylon on the lower left side).  The
actual tear was about half the size of the repair.  The half zipper down
left side of sleeping bag (to reduce weight) works perfectly. There is cord
around the top of the bag to constrict the sleeping bag opening around one’s
face (I’ve used this to constrict the opening of the sleeping to the size of
my mouth in a snowstorm).  According to the Marmot website, if you are over
6’ tall, you will want a Helium Long, not this sleeping bag. Size: 76” long;
13” wide (feet); 25” wide (shoulders). Weight 1lb 13oz.
Also included:
- One large cotton stuff sack, for longer-term storage.
- One small/compact stuff sack, for use when backpacking.
- One swatch of blue ripstop nylon for repairs.  Size: 4” x 3”

*Silk Sleeping Bag Liner from New Zealand—Half Price! *

Retail: $40
My Price: $20 + S&H

Protect your sleeping bag and sleep in luxury. The mummy liner made of New
Zealand silk is in pristine condition.  It was used during 1-2 trips (at
most) and has been pampered...no tears, no repairs, no weak spots.
Incredibly comfortable, it will protect your investment in the Marmot Helium
by keeping the bag clean, so you don't need to wash the bag as often.
Retail: $40.  I cannot believe I posted a price of $15--this is  a steal!
Weight: 3.5oz.

*Super-Lightweight  TarpTent Shelter—Half Price!*

Retail: $230
My Price: $115 + S&H

Lightweight: 1lb 11.5oz (includes tent + bag, two poles, 6 titanium stakes +
Perfect condition.  Rarely used; gently used.
Exterior: 85” long, 50” wide, highpoint (head) = 43”, lowpoint (feet) = 18”
Interior: floor at head = 37” wide; floor at feet = 28” wide.
Good ventilation: entire front is mesh; 9” mesh separates the tent floor
from the tent ceiling.  Can replace one of the poles with a trekking pole to
reduce weight.
Better than buying new: I sealed all seams on the tent roof; I added two
side guy lines for better protection from wind and strong rain storms; I’ve
included 3 super-lightweight titanium stakes (it only came with 3).
Front and rear guy lines have reflective material so you won’t trip over
them at night.
Large triangular door is partially protected from wind-blown rain by a
“beak,” which is secured in place by a guyline.
Repair materials included: nylon swatch to repair tent, 4” x 3”; needle,
thread, small scissors

Retail: $350
My Price: $195 + S&H

Gregory Whitney Backpack
Built for large loads on the trail or in a hostel, the Gregory Whitney
backpack is remarkably comfortable and spacious (5000+ cubic inches).  With
access to gear through the top, both sides and the upper and lower parts of
the front of the pack, it is easy to find what you need quickly, without
emptying your pack on the trail or in a bus station.  Two metal stays
distribute the load effectively while the 5.25” wide, padded hipbelt with
plastic reinforcements make any load easy to carry.  Both shoulder straps
are ergonomically shaped and padded.  The backpack lid is removable for day
use and has a key chain to keep valuables safe inside.  Side pockets on each
side of the pack keep water bottles, guidebooks, and maps within reach at
all times. Multiple compression straps keep loads compact and close to your
back; comes with two ice-axe loops and daisy chains. Made of exceptionally
durable ripstop nylon with the bottom of the pack being made out of a
petroleum-based rubber fabric, this backpack will provide years of comfort!

miles.  Plus, the device has the ability to mark a stop or attraction (a
campsite or a scenic overlook or place to rest), then add distances as you
