      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      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!

FS: MH Ghost -40 sleeping bag

Recommended Posts

This is a repost from another thread but I thought I'd give this sleeping bag one more shot here before sacrificing it to the ebay gods.

 

Sleeping bag is a Mountain Hardwear Ghost SL -40, long, left zip. Used on one 17-day trip. Like-new condition.

 

Asking $450. Includes compression sack, mesh storage sack and shipping.

 

email osbecker at hotmail dot com for pics. Otherwise posting here or PM works.

 

Thanks for looking.

scott

Haven't been able to move this thing yet and I've been too lazy to put it on ebay so I'll bump it here one more time...

Consider the timing of your sale. This is a very specialized bag that is only useful in a few places. If you don't need the storage space and are not in immediate need of cash, can you wait to post the bag in advance of the appropriate climbing seasons where it would be needed? I'm thinking:

 

- post-monsoon Himalayan season (trips are usually in August, so try to sell in June & July)

- austral summer Vinson season (trips are usually in December, so try to sell in October & November)

- early season Denali (trips are in April, so try to sell in February & March). A -40 might even be more than needed for April on Denali, but some people like to overdo it)

- pre-Monsoon Himalayan season (trips leave in late March/April, so try to sell in January or February).

 

Keep in mind that other than Denali, climbers going to these destinations don't typically do their gear shopping on this website. There might be a similar online marketplace expressly for high altitude mountaineering (what happens to all those down suits that get used once on Everest, for example?), so look around.
