      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

REI pays $1200/hr for gear assembly!

Recommended Posts

Ok, so maybe it belongs in the REI appreciation thread, but I'm feelin happy so I'm sprayin (heck, maybe it belongs in spray)! So I was in the gear garage downstairs at the downtown store last week and I see a pair of OR Brooks Ranger overboots in a bin. Hmm, only $30, but there is still a pricetag with the old $135 price on it too. Oh, now I see, one of the overboots seems to be missing the closed cell foam insulation. Wait, what's that in the bin next to them, a funny shaped closed cell foam pad. The garage tag on the overboots says "Someone took these apart, put them back together if you can". Ok, lets see, use the whole one for a model, work the foam piece back in . . . 5 mins . . voila! $135 overboots for $30, plus my 5 mins of assembly. Sweet! I'm gonna have toasty feet in my Nepal Extremes this year, now I just have to get my crampons to fit.
