  7. A used sleeping bag with a few repairs and ready to go. Approximate temperature rating is 15 to 20 degree's F. - Regular size, mummy style with box foot construction. - 1.2 ounce ripstop nylon. - 24" in length longitudinal baffled down compartments over the torso. Elsewhere, 6" horizontal slant box baffled construction. - Left zip, near full length #5 YKK zipper with double pulls. Works as it should. - Double Polarguard filled draft flaps seal the zipper. - Polarguard filled 360 degree collar at the shoulders. ------------- Repairs: - 1 abrasion covered with Seam Grip. - One 4" section of baffle stitching had come apart and was repaired by Ripstop Repairs in Boulder, CO. --------------- Improvement: I had some goose down on hand and decided to open the very top seam in a few places and added a generous amount to the longitudinal compartments. Took some time and but increases the lower temperature rating to about 15 - 20 degree's F by my estimation. The sleeping bag is not an ultra light by today's standards but is thoughtfully designed and well made. Weight is 3lbs 10oz with the overfill, not to shabby. Includes the original stuff sack. Asking $115.00 plus shipping cost. PPFF or Venmo.

  12. Here’s a pair of Fabiano, made in Italy, all leather classics in very lightly used condition. – Mid-weight boot with just a little flex by hand at the ball of the foot. - 1 piece all leather suede upper with a glove leather lining.

He designed a series of boots, mostly leather, that were fabricated to his specifications in Italy, by Scarpa."
  13. Introduced in 1979, The North Star is a 4 season, double wall dome designed with the features and strength needed for expedition and base camp in extreme conditions. It will accommodate 4 adults closely, 6 in an absolute pinch ..... with contortions. In addition to a zippered main entrance, the tent has double snow tunnels backed with bug netting that provide cross ventilation in the warmer months. The North Star is also a very pleasant tent for family camping. - Six equal length 183" shock corded Easton aluminum poles and 2 short aluminum awning supports. 3, 10" aluminum struts help to maintain the "dead air space" (separation) between the rainfly and canopy. - 1.9 ounce ripstop nylon canopy and full coverage rainfly. Polyurethane coated taffeta nylon floor, lower sidewalls, entrance panel and snow tunnels. - 10 additional guy line pullouts on the rainfly for high wind and snow load conditions. - Free standing. - Has 6 inside gear pockets. - Tunnel design cook/disposal hole built into the interior floor. - 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. Total Weight is 13 pounds. 58.25 sq feet of interior floor space. 55" center height. ---------------- Condition: I have completed a thorough inspection throughout and would say the tent is in very good used condition. - The colors on the main canopy are bright with very little sun fading. - The outer rainfly is a TNF replacement and is in near new condition. - The poles are without splits or kinks and are not deformed beyond what is consistent with use and normal shaping to the dome curvature. - Zippers run smoothly. - A common issue in older tents is the deterioration of the polyurethane waterproof coating applied to the lower sidewalls, floor and rainfly. The coated areas are not sticky or to a lesser degree even tacky. The worst that can be said is that on hot days or in direct summer sun the coating softens. It is not peeling and continues to provide full waterproofing. Re-coating is unneeded at this time.There are no issues with the rainfly. ----------------- Restoration: The interior floor and the pole sleeves needed some minor repair to bring the tent completely up to snuff: 1) The floor was cleaned and inspected - Several tiny cooking spark holes, scuffs and abrasions were repaired with either dabs of Mcnett Seam Grip Sealer/Adhesive or the Sealer and nylon taffeta fabric in combination. Usage stains are well set and only minor effort was made at removal. 2) Threading poles through tent sleeves in high winds or darkness isn't ideal and is best done with 2 persons. Some fabric wear, nicks and several about 1/4" - 3/4" in length slits were solidly repaired with Seam Grip, light flat webbing and ripstop repair fabric on the inside and outside of the damage. Arguably strong as new and good to go. *As TNF cautions, a small measure of care is needed when threading poles through the sleeves of any tent with light weight fabric. To avoid damage, flex the poles as they are being threaded through the pole sleeves* 3) On the main entrance netting, a few tiny pulls were reinforced with dabs of Seam Grip. Netting is in mint condition at the tunnel entrances. 4) I sealed the floors main center cross seam a few days ago. --------------- The tent is entirely ready for use. Asking $975.00 plus shipping cost from 80517. Estes Park, CO inspection and pickup may be arranged if in the vicinity. http://oregonphotos.com/snow-camping.html#anchor165216 Photo's 7, 8 and 9 show repair patches applied to tiny spark holes on the tent floor.
