What gear did Santa put under your tree this year?I got a Marmot Pounder sleeping bag and an REI giftcard!Not sure about the pounder, may exchange it for down as I'm a cold sleeper, but all in all, a great Christmas.
SMD Lunar Solo.
During these tough times, discounts and bargains help keep Christmas alive!BPL Merino Wool Hoody and pant(thanks to the Free Shipping discount)Sierra High Route Map Set(a terrific bargain)BPL Thorofare Trekking Pant(thanks to the 40% Member discount)
Well, I was hoping for a lot more with the 40% off sale. Everything I "need" is out of stock. Anybody else having this problem?
Montbell UL down inner vest. Really nice!!
Same issue on the PBL 40% off--about half the items I wanted were out of stock.
I did get some cool Pearl Izumi thermal tights and foot warmers for winter mt. biking though. Thank you Santa!
I got the SPOT...which I immediately returned for a set of Gossamer Gear Light Trek 4 poles (on order at this point). I also got the 2009 ULA Circuit.With that said, anyone want to buy my 2008 ULA Circuit purchased in roughly Aug/Sep 2008 and used ONCE over a weekend. I can be VERY flexible on the price. It looks new and has nothing wrong with it. Size Large with XL belt...and I'd be happy to knock $20 off the agreed price if someone wants to get a smaller belt from ULA. This was new for $200ish just a couple months ago.
Snow Peak Titanium Titanium Trek 700 Mug.

A pair of Smith Hudson sun glasses which I promptly lost in the Pacific Ocean trying to stay up after a hard hit from a wave. Forgot I had them on!
REI gift card and a Black Diamond light for my tent when winter camping
Santa was good to me-3 - BPL Firelite Ti Cookpots ( 550-SUL, SUL-1100 and SUL-1350)1 - Gossamer Gear 3/8" Thinlight Pad
Digital postal scaleFolding spoon (BPL titanium)Monocular (Barska Atlantic)Lightweight fishing rod/reel (3' fish pen)ULA Amp with all the optionsPlus the entire series of "Kolchak: the night stalker" on DVD.
I asked for this and was told it would just lead to me buying more stuff! But nice to see other people are "out" to their families as ounce-obsessed.
Do you know where they got the fishing rod/reel from?
It not very light but a got 2 Tomahawks! They are great car camping and they are fun too!
I had one of these and it worked for some sucker fish.http://www.gofastandlight.com/Fishing/products/5/
Brand name on the box is Coleman. Site the manual references is "http://www.telebrands.com/FishPen.html".My wife picked it up at the local Bed, Bath and Beyond store.Using my nifty new digital scale it comes out at 5.8 oz for the pole and reel. It does warn that it is only intended for fish up to 2 lbs.I'll be giving it a try at Isle Royale this year ...
like 70% off

Small keychain thermometer and an eyeglasses strap. All other gear I wanted that anyone knew about was out of price ranges or I bought it myself.
