Down Socks on 10/13/2004 10:22:49 MDT Print View

Sierra Designs down socks, $25 (not on sale). Saw them at REI last night. I didn't have my scale with me but they felt reasonably light. The REI website says they carry the socks exclusively.

GoLite Infinity $165 on 10/21/2004 23:23:49 MDT Print View

ebay: item no. 5125244787
listed by the Outfitter at Harper's Ferry
new, with a buy now button, no need to deal with auction hassles.

not a bad deal for an excellent internal frame pack, normally about $200 and doesn't go on sale very often.

Only $100 at Galyan's on 12/09/2004 12:07:11 MST Print View

The Infinity was only $100 at Galyan's this past weekend in Columbus, OH. They say they are "going out of business", but they are really dumping everything before they "convert" into a Dick's.
