  1. The Parawing is a tarp with a parabolic cut. It was designed and marketed by Bill Moss founder of Moss Tents in Camden, Maine. Technically it is described as a "hyperbolic paraboloid with compound curves". This is a used, original 19' Parawing being sold with the poles, stakes, stuff sacks and guy lines. The color is a yellowish tan. It is in good overall condition and has not been set up for extended periods of time. The color doesn't appear significantly faded. There are some stains consistent with use and I have done some restoration in preparation for sale. Several pinhead sized campfire spark holes received a dab of Seam Grip and 4 larger about pea sized that I patched with nylon taffeta fabric and Seam Grip. Otherwise, the seams and guyline attachment points stitching is sound and I have cleaned the the tarp without any particular effort to remove dirt and tree stains. - 1.9 ounce per sq yard ripstop nylon with polyurethane coating. Coating is about 99% intact and without odor. - 2, 8 foot long, three section Reynolds 6061-T6 seamless aircraft aluminum poles without shock cord which allows a section to be removed and the fly pitched closer to the surface when needed. I'm asking $245.00 inclusive of shipping cost to the lower 48. PPFF or please add the 4% goods fee if you prefer. (The shadow spots on photo's are due to my old camera)
  2. Gregory Cassin Internal Frame Pack - Cavernous 116 Liter Load Hauler - Large In 1977, Wayne Gregory with his newly founded company, applied innovative internal frame pack design concepts ...... the contoured profile, ergonomic hip belt, side zippers, taped seams and adjustable suspension ...... in the production of their backpacks. The Cassin was in production from 1987 through 1991 and was the predecessor to the Denali Pro. Up for sale is the final production model with 2 side entry zippers supplementing content access to this top loading, multiple day expedition class pack. The pack is in excellent, lightly used condition. There are no cuts, tears, abrasions, loose stitching or worn areas. The exception is the polyurethane fabric coating has deteriorated and is peeling in its entirety. It removes easily and rolls right up cleanly and without residue. As many of you are aware, a very common issue with coatings as they age. No worries though as a new Gregory pack rain cover comes with the purchase. When the old coating is removed it actually lightens the pack. Features: - 7,055 cubic inches, 116 liters capacity for the size large. - Pack and hipbelt are a size large. Fits torso length approximately 18 - 21 inches. Padded section of hip belt measurement is 34 inches. Add about 11 inches for the adjustable webbing sections. - 8 ounce pack cloth, #10 YKK heavy duty zippers. A robust, rugged pack for extremes. Very durably constructed albeit heavy by today's standards. Weighs in at 6 lbs, 10 oz. Ray Jardine's concepts in lightening pack weight were introduced around 1983 but the 2 design concepts continued to exist side by side for years with present day adherents of each. Large load haulers are needed for extended treks without resupply, trail crews and for restocking back country huts. - Suspension is 2 internal contoured aluminum stays and padded back panel. Dense foam padded ergonomic hipbelt. – Huge top lid pocket ((887 cubic inches), a main body and zippered lower sleeping bag compartment. Lid converts to a fanny pack or can be left behind for reduced weight. Side entry zippers on the main compartment. The top lid panel has lashing points for attaching crampons. – Extension/sealing skirt. - Included are 2 large, about 700 cubic inch each detachable accessory water/fuel bottle pockets and 2 removable front pockets that piggyback. 1 of nylon pack cloth the other mainly of mesh.These add more cubic inches to pack volume. Use with or without as needed. – Ice axe loops. - Side compression straps - Blue with a slightly purplish tint. I'm asking $165.00 plus shipping cost. The packs condition, with the exception of the coating separation, is on par with the best of vintage packs I have seen. Many years of use ahead for this pack. Deterioration of the coating.

  4. Was $175, now at $165.00. 4 season, double wall dome that is very roomy for 2 and will fit 3 persons. about the same floor space as the VE25. In addition to the zippered entrance, the tent has double snow tunnel entrances for winter and mountaineering use. Four, 157" equal length replacement fiberglass poles. 2 shorter Easton aluminum awning supports which I have purchased from TNF. The original owner lost the pole bag. The fiberglass poles are strong and work fine but are heavier and do not have the ultimate strength of metal for mountaineering use ..... but who among you is unaware of this. The tent is in excellent, lightly used overall condition. No stains, no funky odors and the polyurethane coating on the floor and rainfly isn't sticky or peeling. Very clean throughout. There was a slit in the fabric of 1 pole sleeve and another near the entrance which I have solidly repaired. (Again for the uninitiated, the center shadow spots on the photo's is a flaw of my older point and shoot) Note: If your planning regular, serious mountaineering use, TNF sells the 4 Easton aluminum poles for $192.00 but they are out of stock. TentPole Technology sells the 4 poles in Easton aluminum for approximately $144.00. - Nylon taffeta floor, canopy and rainfly. - Zippered main entrance with bug netting. Netting is mint. - Double snow tunnel entrances with netting for summer ventilation. - Additional guy line pullouts on the rainfly for high wind and snow load conditions. - 2 inside netting gear pockets. - Free standing. - Seams on the floor and rainfly were not previously sealed. A blank slate for you to do the job. No old, flaking sealer to clean up. Weights: Rainfly, 2lbs 6oz - Poles & Stakes, 3lbs 10oz - Main Body, 4lbs 1oz Comes with setup instructions, poles, pegs, separate pole and tent bags. Asking $165.00 plus shipping cost from 80517.
  5. Anyone have an extra set of the 4 main poles for the The North Face VE24 tent they would like to sell? Or, any higher quality 157" long aluminum poles that break down into sections approximately 24"- 28"max. Thank you!
  6. Heavy duty boots with stiff shanks that can be flexed just a bit by hand at the ball of the foot. Good for rough terrain, providing support for heavier loads and with crampons for snow couloirs, glacial travel and icy rock gullies. Use with strap-on crampons such as Petzl Vasak with Flexlock bindings or older, full strap-on SMC's. Pair with rigid crampons for easy to moderate ice climbing. - Vibram deep lug sole with next to no wear. - Cambrelle lining that is clean and near new in appearance. - Rubber toe rand. - Separate outer tongue gusset helps to keep out water and debris. - Full grain, rough-out leather. - Size US 9, Eur 42.5. To help with sizing, the inside measurement of the foot bed, toe to heel is 10&1/8 inches. This is with the tape right on the insole of the left shoe and measuring to where the removable insole at the heel begins its upward turn. Compare with your current footwear. - Weight is 2 lbs, 1 oz per boot. Hardly used, in close to new condition. Asking $125.00 shipped. PPFF or please add 3% if you prefer a "goods" transaction.
