      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.

Where to buy an ArcTeryx Nozone in Vancouver?

Recommended Posts

I don't know of any shop here that sells them. In all honesty, every Canadian I know who uses one prodealed it.

It might make sense to try to S/O one now and pick it up when you come to town.

Best of luck.

Hi friends,

I will be heading north to BC in a month and hope to buy a Nozone pack (well liked on this fourum).

Question: where is a good place to buy one in Vancouver? I called MEC, Coast Mt Sports and Great Outdoors Equipment. No one carries this pack, but two said they could special order it. Do folks know any store in the area that actually stocks the Nozone, and if yes, the cost in $Canadian?

Cheers!

I have sort of the same question. I was looking for some clothing of theirs, and nobody sells it.

Any ideas, anyone?

I think you can gettum at Coast Mountain sports???? Cause we used to sell them to them. But maybe they don't sell well to the yuppie 'outdoor look' crowd so they stopped carrying them in their great sweep toward the posers?

You could special order thru Valhalla Pure. Or call Arcteryx and ask who sells in Vcr area.

We sell the NoZone here in Everett at Cascade Crags. It is our number one selling alpine pack. We have the largest selection of Arc'teryx packs in the region. I have been using a NoZone for three years and it is the only pack I use. It works for ice, ski mountaineering and cragging.

I just blew out my alpine pack and am in the market. It seems the sizes published by various manufacturers is not consistant. The nozone looks about right, but also seems to be a lot more expensive than other similar packs.

Mountainsmith makes both the Boundary and Wizard. Both seem really nice.

North Face has the Prophet series, but I'm just not able to do powder-puff blue. Sierra trading post has the NF Gompa for $99. Just not sure it's big enough. Also, the NF has the Springbok which is a little beefier and so weighs more, but still reasonable.

Some features I'm particular to: Lighter weight, two ice axes, extendable/removable top lid, gear loops, compression straps, larger bivy extension, hydration friendly. Wand/ski pockets would be nice.

Any opinion on frame vs. sheets?

Also, the BD ice pack looks pretty good too. Wish there were a store where i could see them all at the same time. I'm looking for feedback!!!!!!!!!!

David -

I bought the BD Ice Pack this year and have used it quite a bit, pretty happy with it, real straight forward with no foofy gimicky stuff. The only thing I would change is adding a wand pocket, it just has straps for sliding your ski's into so carying pickets and wands requires some thought. Bought mine for $127 on Snowleopord.com of course it is last years color (boo hoo) rolleyes.gif

I wanted a nozone but couldent put up the $$$ at the time and wanted something I could use for a summit pack on an extended trip.

Happy shopping!
