  1. I have an excellent condition Feathered Friends Osprey 30 Nano in Long length. The bag has no tears, smells, holes, stains, etc. Was well cared for, and comes from a pet and smoke free home. Always stored uncompressed underneath a bed. Only has 12 trail nights. Feathered friends and Western Mountaineering make the same level, highest quality down bags in the industry. There are only a few differences -> 1. Instead of a Velcro closure, FF uses a push button (much nicer..won't scratch your face during the night). 2. FF drawcords are easier to flip outside of the bag so the drawcords don't float in front of your face during the night (WM points inwards). 3. Most important: Shape. I prefer the FF shape profile more than WM. FF puts more width in the hips than WM, and less in the shoulders. I primarily sleep on my side, fetal position, so my knees need the extra hip room, but I don't need such huge shoulder space of a WM. An Osprey is their mid range width profile, which has proved to be their most popular profile. So, this has the same width space of a WM Megalite, but shoulders more like an Ultralite. Anyway, Feathered friends only sells direct, and I called and asked...they never offer sales on their down bags. So the only want to get one on a discount is to buy used. An Osprey Nano 30 in Long is $384. I am selling for $245 shipped.
  2. I'm desperately looking for a Feathered friends Raven in Long (either the Nano or UL). Or...second choice...a Swift, or 3rd choice, a Ibis. Basically....a "wide" feathered friends bag in Long, and warm.
  3. I have a REI Centre Point Jacket, in size L. Like new condition. An excellent softshell jacket while you are active. Plenty of reviews online if you google rei centre point jacket. Uses Polartec Power shield pro. Very breathable, but still warm. The jacket is actually black and dark gray....the picture has a flash which is making it much lighter than it actually is. These were $200. I'll sell for $85 shipped free. UPDATE: $70 Here are a few links -> https://www.rei.com/product/816061/rei-centre-peak-jacket-mens http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:q3BqwHFG28gJ:www.backpacker.com/gear/apparel/jackets/category-soft-shells/gear-review-rei-centre-peak-softshell-jacket/+&cd=4&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us [img:left]http://i1374.photobucket.com/albums/ag435/mackgriggs/20160511_134016_zpsi9brasb3.jpg[/img]
  4. I have a Hyperlite Mountain Gear Ultamid 2 in excellent condition, used 2 nights on the trail. My young son now wants to come with us on more trips so I'm going to be using a larger Mid this season. This Mid has perimeter bug netting added by HMG. They did an excellent job...instead of stitching the netting to the very bottom of the perimeter (like I've seen some companies do), they bonded a small strip of cuben about 2 inches above the perimeter and then folded it inward, and then stitched the netting to that, so there is no chance of rain to catch on the netting and go inwards. If you don't want the netting, you can easily cut it off. I was actually about to do a mod where I was going to cut off the netting, and add Zpacks cuben Velcro tape strips to Velcro the netting to the strip of cuben along the perimeter, but I'll probably do that on the larger mid I purchase. But if you did, it would be as easy as sticking tape to the mid, no sewing required, and would give you the ability to remove the netting when not needed (like winter). I also have two carbon fiber trekking pole extenders that you can use to create an inverted V if you do not want a pole in the center of the mid. Quite comfortable. And, if you don't know already, the Ultamid 2 is quite a bit more comfortable than the Duomid, since it is wider and has the door on the shorter side, so each sleeper has access to the door without having to climb over the other occupant. The Ultamid 2 retails for $675 + $50 perimeter netting + $28 cuben fiber pole extenders + $15 shipping = $768. I would like $615 If you have any questions, just let me know via PM.
