  1. I was going to use the down jacket here in Michigan a few year back when the trip I was planning on with my wife was canceled because of a stem cell replacement for my multiple myeloma cancer I am dealing with. Purchased this jacket in 2005 (“old model”). The jacket has 7 snaps with two at the neck to form a standup collar as well as a shirt tail back that drops the back about 2 inches longer than the front.. The jacket has been hanging in the hall closet ever since I had the transplant and I forgot I had it. The jacket is in PRISTINE CONDITION as all of the equipment I have sold on BPL in the past, i.e. no rips, tears, smells, stains etc. The jacket fits me well as I am: Weight: 160 lbs, Height: 5’ – 10”, Chest: 37.5”, Waist: 36”, and Sleeve Length: 33. FEATURES Sewn thru construction Stuff sack included Shell Fabric Down 7 DWR specific 15d Ballistic Airlight hollow fiber nylon shell Fill Weight 2.1 oz (60 g) of 725 fill power hypoallergenic goose down Total Weight: 7.65oz/217g Size: MENS - MEDIUM Color: Black >>>>>> $100 shipped FREE in CONUS<<<<<< PayPal Personal (GIFT) Payment OR USPS Money Order For further information or communications through my email: kenlarson40@chartermi.net

  8. ***FS MT. HARDWEAR ETHERAL FTX ICE PARKA***

    After looking at the most recent copy of the BP Magazine I have changed the posting to the present terminology of HARD SHELL rather than PARKA. This is a great deal for anyone looking at HARD SHELLS.
  9. While this parka is not in the category of backpacking light thermal equipment, it is a piece of clothing for someone who might have an alternative use for it. This is a vintage parka made by a company that specialized in down equipment that I would like to get out of my closet since there is no hope of me using it since I am dealing with multiple myeloma cancer. It is in beautiful condition. I have used it can attest to its cold weather capabilities and durability. This parka is the finest article of cold weather, high-altitude equipment in its day. For 30 years, it became the gold standard for high-altitude gear, chosen by many of the century's greatest expeditions, including several that made epic first ascents. Specifications: Eddie Bauer (1970 Edition) Kara Koram Expedition Parka with Hood SIZE: Medium Goose Down filled (700+fp) Made in America," in Seattle Washington by Eddie Bauer 60/40 Cloth (outer), 1.9 oz. Ripstop Nylon (inner)…”bomb proof material!” Weight: 2.44lbs Weather Rating: Arctic Cold, Tested to -30*F/-34*C Constructed with an integrated, down-insulated hood; adjustable hood, waist and hem; and rib-knit cuffs to seal out cold. You opened and close the coat by means of a heavy brass zipper, backed up with large buttons and has a down draft backing tube behind all of this. The Eddie Bauer Kara Koram Parka has seen much duty in the Arctic and Antarctic, as well as on numerous climbing expeditions. This parka has NO rips OR holes The condition of the parka, based on a scale of 1 – 10(best), would be an 8+ because of the slight staining around the neck collar. Most parka’s of this quality today run from $300 - $800, depending on manufacture, down quality, and material use. I would be willing to sell this for: >>>>>> $145 shipped FREE in CONUS<<<<<< If you think that price is too high, and would like to make me a COUNTER OFFER please do as I would like to provide a new home for this parka!

  10. PERFECT CONDITION…NEVER USED I receive this jacket as a gift and since have acquired multiple myeloma cancer and thus I foresee it will never be used. The Feathered Friends Daybreak Jacket is light enough to slide under a shell in a pinch, and for something that packs small and light for milder temperatures. Material: NanoSphere Crimson color 900 fp Goose Down Down Fill Weight: 3.1 oz Size: Medium (LAYERED OVER A LIGHT LAYER), Small (LAYERED OVER A MEDIUM LAYER) Actual Weight: 8.5 oz Sewn through construction Zippered insulated pockets Stuff sack included Feathered Friends Sizing for Jackets and Vests >>>>>>NOTE<<<<<< The most important thing to consider when determining the proper size and fit for Daybreak Jacket is your layering system. The Daybreak Jacket is sized much like a fleece jacket or sweater and fits snug for proper insulation.IF YOU PLAN ON WEARING THIS OVER A MEDIUM LAYER I WOULD CONSIDER SIZING THIS JACKET AS A Small – AS it might feel tight for you! >>>>YOURS for $150.00 …….shipped FREE in CONUS<<<< Pay PayPal Personal Payment(GIFT) OR USPS Money Order For further information or communications through my email: kenlarson40@chartermi.net
  11. ***SOLD FEATHERED FRIENDS DAYBREAK JACKET ***

    >>>>STILL FOR SALE AS SALE FELL THROUGH<<<<<< SERIOUS.....
  12. PERFECT CONDITION….NEVER USED. The reason that I am selling the Feathered Friends Vireo Sleeping Bag is my multiple myeloma cancer dx. With this current issue I am dealing with, I foresee it will never be used as planned. This bag has been stored in a cloth bag in my closet in new condition since I purchased it. The Vireo was designed with alpine climbers in mind. It has no zipper, no hood, a variable down fill and weighs only 16 ounces. A variable down fill means that the lower part of the bag has more down fill (rated to 25) and the upper section has less fill (a 45 rating). It is designed to be used with the Volant Jacket (or Hooded Helios or Frontpoint parka) for full protection. Used without the jacket it becomes a summer bag. Vireo (64/48/38) Rated Temperature: 25°-45°F / -4°-7.2°C Length: 68” Stuff size: 6” x 13” Loft: 3" - 5" Fill weight: 8.1oz of 850fp down Overfill 850fp: 2 oz Fabric: NanoSphere® (Color: Sage) Measured Weight: 1.33 lb FF Storage bag Included >>>>YOURS for SOLD OR make a reasonable offer.......shipped FREE in CONUS<<<< Pay PayPal Personal Payment OR USPS Money Order For further information or communications through my email: kenlarson40@chartermi.net

  17. ***FS Mt Hardware EV-2 Tent ***

    The year 2000 when I was going to use the tent I was dx with multiple myeloma cancer. My past & present cancer treatments have eliminated any future expedition climbing for me and a need for the tent. Made up my mind I must see that the tent needs a “home" where the tent can be used. >>>>Tent and was used ONCE, is in new condition and was stored in a dry environment.<<<< Overview The Mountain Hardwear EV2 is loaded with high tech materials and design: strong Atlas Scandium SL pole set with new floating connectors, low-stretch VX-O2 panels follow pole lines and reinforce side panel tie outs. The idea is that together they create a strong truss-like system to support the tent in high winds and heavy snow loads. The main canopy is a waterproof/breathable, fire-retardant (nice!), pre-stretched polyester. The EV2 may be the lightest two-person, three-pole mountaineering/expedition tent on the market. Many new high tech (and expensive) materials contribute to weight savings. The EV2, even with its few flaws, is our first choice for a fast and light ascent tent. The Atlas Scandium SL poles and low-stretch reinforcing panels on the canopy create a surprisingly solid structure for the weight. Five vents and the waterproof/breathable, fire retardant canopy fabric do a credible job of managing condensation. The EV2 is one of the easiest tents we've pitched, mountain or otherwise. With the built-in vestibule, we found the tent had more than enough room for us and our gear to comfortably wait out a day long Patagonian storm of high winds with horizontal rain, sleet, and snow. In Brief • Just over 5 lbs with vestibule - possibly the lightest tent in its class • Roomy for a two-person mountaineering tent with good area to weight ratio • Easy and extremely fast to pitch with exoskeleton poles and clip attachments • Strong, light Atlas Scandium SL poles with field serviceable floating connectors • High tech fabric/design: low stretch structural panels follow pole/stress lines. Fire retardant waterproof/breathable canopy fabric of pre-stretched polyester (meets fire resistant code for tents!) • Five vents and waterproof/breathable canopy fabric provide good condensation resistance for a single walled tent • We were unable to get a completely taut canopy pitch • Less resistant to heavy snow loads than heavier four-pole mountaineering tents (especially true with the older Easton pole set) I am including the Mountain Hardware EV-2 foot print as an EXTRA.
