  2. ****REDUCED#3 Osprey Amelia Women's Backpack****

    NO.....Wife purchased it at the Outpost in Holland, MI
  3. DANA ARCFLEX - TERRAPLANE (M pack, L belt) (My Torso Length 19.5 inches, My Waist Size 37.5 inches) CAPACITY (cu. in.)/ (liter) 5800/95 WEIGHT (oz)/ WEIGHT (lb) 108.8/6.8 Pack Cover included Pack is in new condition Main features •Carbon fiber stays to add stability, shift weight to your hips, and act as springs to absorb the vertical inertia of the pack. You can really feel the spring action when you walk. •Rigid plastic frame sheet which prevents hard things from poking your back and, along with a single aluminum stay, helps contour the pack to your back. A cut out at the top of the sheet provides "HeadSpace", allowing you to tilt your head back a little further than some other packs. •Stiff hip belt with ample padding, secured with hook-and-loop (e.g., Velcro), allowing fine adjustment of torso length and removal for use of top as a fanny pack. This was the stiffest hip belt in the store after the Gregory hip belts (which are made of carbon fiber). •Contoured shoulder straps with ample adjustments. You have to adjust these correctly, and especially get the lengths right on the straps (you may have to take off the pack to check this) or one shoulder strap will press more than the other and the pack will lean over to one side and in general you'll lower the efficiency of the suspension system. But once you get the straps adjusted they're very comfortable. •The Pack Cover matches pack size for a weather proof system. •Lumbar pad and porous foam back pad (most packs in this price range have these features). •Retractable bottom, which allows you to eliminate the sleeping bag compartment when carrying smaller loads, thus shifting the weight higher up and improving balance. •Comes in 5 frame sizes, each appropriate for different torso sizes, and 5 hip belts, each appropriate for different hip sizes (I got a medium pack and large belt). •Two external zippered pockets, which, being on the back of the pack instead of its sides, do not affect the pack's narrow profile and thus would not interfere with a cross-country skiing hand motion. •Numerous straps and attachment points for skis, jackets, ice ax, gizmos, whatever. 2 open side "pockets" (really only about 2 inches deep) for keeping tent poles and similar items attached to the pack. Includes 2 sewn on straps for attaching a sleeping pad, which might even double as closures for the sleeping bag compartment should the compartment's hefty zipper fail. Both the Pack & Pack Cover sells for $400 YOURS for $125 plus shipping in CONUS …….I will consider any reasonable offer. Pay Pal or USPS Money Order Accepted Please contact me at kenlarson40@chartermi.net for all inquiries.

  10. I have contacted Brent Zwiers of Feathered Friends Company concerning the issue below. Brent refered me to you for a possible solution. http://www.featheredfriends.com/Picasso/Garments/Exp/RockandIce.html http://www.featheredfriends.com/Picasso/Garments/Exp/-40Pant.html I have a *New*, never use Rock & Ice Parka GORTEX(large) AND -40 Pants PTFE (large) that I purchase in 1998 & 1999 that I was planning to use when I climb Cho Oyu. Shortly after I retired in 2000 and had this trip in the making I was dx with multiple myeloma cancer (non curable), stage 3+.....not good. The treatment that followed (two stem cell transplants at the University of Michigan) took all the opportunities to climb out of the picture do to the effects on my bone marrow. Today I looked in my closet and saw these two beautiful pieces of equipment hanging and made up my mind I must see that they have a "home" where they can be used. I paid $650 for the Rock & Ice Parka GORTEX(large) AND $430 for the -40 Pants PTFE (large)....again NEVER USED. I'm wondering if you can HELP me out in selling these items to someone that would be interested. I'm willing to take a big loss, but I'm now willing to just give them away. AND I'm in no hurry to sell them. I would greatly appreciate you giving this issue of mine some thought and hand helping me out if all possible. Willing to sell Rock & Ice Parka for $400 USA dollars + shipping and Parka & -40 Pants for $550 USA dollars no shipping cost.
