Turtle's Gear Closet sale 2014

Post by turtle » September 2nd, 2014, 4:20 pm

I bought some new stuff so I have to sell some old stuff. From a trail karma point of view it is better for the old gear to be on a trail than in my closet.

Tarp-Tent Squall. This is a floor-less shaped tarp. Palatial for one and gear, plenty of room for one, gear and dog, and room for two humans and gear. Weighs 2 lbs. 3 ozs. including used Tyvak groundsheet and six stakes included. Sets up with one trekking pole not included. No stuff sack. No leaks as of last use. Refreshing the seam seal is probably a good idea. It has been in my gear closet for several years so UV exposure not an issue. Price is $35.

Groundsheet has grommets and line to attach it to netting.

Osprey Aether 60 Pack. This is 11 years old and in addition to many normal hikes I carried this for 1500 miles and 3 months on the PCT in 2004. There is some wear and tear which is detailed in the pictures. The weight is 3 lbs. 8 ozs. This pack was very comfortable for me with loads up to 40 lbs. Size medium, about 60 liters. It holds a bear canister vertically. No hydration ports. The wear does not affect the function: load it up and take it hiking today. Price is $45.

The side compression strap buckles are broken on both sides.

The coating is flaking off.
Finally, I have one of the early ThermaRest self inflating pads. It is 48" by 20" and weighs 1 lb. 8 ozs. It has been holding air for the last 4 days so I'm pretty darn sure it doesn't leak. Price is $15.

This pack is sold.
Six Moon Designs Swift Pack 2010/2011 model; purchased in late 2010. This is a size Large(19-21 inch torso length) frame-less ultra-light pack. It has large hip-belt pockets and you put a foam pad in the inside zippered pocket to make a frame. Two hydration ports. Interior zip pocket for wallet and keys. This pack is in excellent near new condition. No damage at all. 25 lbs. is as heavy as I would comfortably carry, YMMV. The pack weighs 1 lb. 2 ozs. on my scales. Reviews at BPL are favorable. These are for the 2011 model. IMHO the guy who gave it 3 stars overloaded the pack. $119 new. I'm asking $65.
