  1. If you think there is an issue with the stove ship it to MSR, guarenteed for life. www.msrgear.com The will repari or replace the stove.
  2. Check out the Garmont Towers. Confortable for the approach and the great to climb with.

    Ted of Talkeetna

    Try TAT and see if he is there. I know he was heading to Nepal some time this fall. Cheers
  4. Use a 72" long (regular) ridgerest and a 47" long(short)prolite 3 pad in the winter. This combo is warm and comfortable. Yea the bulk sucks but if you sleep better it is worth it. In the summer use the short prolite 3 only and a pack under you feet.
  5. Hey guys, if anyone ever wants to borrow one let me know. I am one of the MSR reps here in the northwest. I have a couple I can loan out. The whole system is pretty smooth and easy to use. I does take up to 4 hours if crypto is an issue. In all other cases 30 minutes is all you need. Best uses are for large groups or someone that is good at monitoring their water use. Drop me an email if anyone wants to borrow one. I will need some type of deposit just so it doesn't walk off. Patrick - jopcook at yahoo dot com
  6. As far as I know Garmont is not importing this boot into the states. The only leather boot being brought in is the Tour. You might find someone with old stock in the states or Canada that's about it. Cheers
  7. MSR, Thermarest, Seal Line, Platypus, plus some of the OR (Outdoor Research) products are all made in Seattle
  8. The system works with a bowline on a bight, or a triple bowline. The down side is that if any of the anchor points failed or if the line was cut at an anchor point the system fails.
  9. Look at the Osprey Switch 25+5. Works great for a board and it carries well. http://ospreypacks.com/switch_25+5.htm
  10. Go with Garmont boots. They fit a medium to low volume foot great. I have a pair of GTX Towers and they climb snow/ice/rock great. The only down side is you might need to purchase a new crampon if you have step-ins. The boot takes a hybrid, strap toe, style crampon. http://gusa.site.yahoo.net/g1088212.html
  11. I would like to take one of those ropes. I could use new dock lines for my boat. I will drop you a pm. Thanks, PC
  12. The new XGK will be on the market in early May, 2005. Check your local shops, Feathered Friends, Second Ascent, Pro Mtn Sports, Leavenworth Mtn Sports, American Alpine Inst.

    help I'm lost!

    Go to US Outdoor and ask for a guy named Gavin. He might know of some places to go. Cheers
  14. Try Marmot in Bellevue. If that doesn't work try Karhu, they are the new distributor for Exel.

    Bridgedale Summit Sock or the AT Boot Plus. Best socks on the market by far. And with a 3 year guarantee this puts them over the top.
