WTB your heavy paddling gear
Hello, I'm hoping someone has upgraded to new sea kayaking or packrafting gear and would like to get rid of your old stuff. I'm looking for dry bags, spray skirt, XL paddle clothing, and...

WTT Mountain Hardwear Phantom 32 down bag, long
Hello, I'd like to trade this or combine with cash for a down quilt, HMG porter, a mid, or something else cool. It's in new condition save for an REI garage sale X and a 1" piece of...
