I caved and bought two items and both have shipped!
All things considered, I'm pretty proud of my self-restraint!

Wow, just like Christmas.

Followed instructions and it worked like a charm. What a promo. Upgraded the shipping since I saved so much.

round two... on 03/02/2009 19:55:06 MST Print View

okay, i already got a bunch of stuff. now i'm looking to outfit myself with some new clothes.
can anyone recommend any clothes at backcountry.com that would fit a really tall guy well, me being 6'6" and 160lbs. i generally wear an LT size shirt and 32x34 in pants. i'm not seeing anything in tall sizes....

also, if anyone can recommend a decent inexpensive overnight backpack i could get here, that would be awesome..

btw, this website has the best customer service i've ever come across when it comes to buying stuff online. that little chat window they have is awesome.

Depending on who you are - the best post in the thread were the codes. But again it could be the worst.

Awesome code! I just picked up a Thermarest NeoAir, ULA circuit, Tarptent Scarp 1 and a WM summerlite and saved myself a bunch!

Wait, they have these already?

I can't find them on the site....

I think Ashley is pulling your chain- they don't carry ULA or Henry's tarptent, and they are out of summerlite bags. The NeoAir isn't out yet. I looked for it last week and it was nowhere to be found.

Re: Re: Ashley on 03/02/2009 20:52:57 MST Print View

Ha, yes, sorry I was being evil. I mean ironic. That gear is on my "most wanted" list and of course not available at backcountry. The neoair should be in april, but no doubt this code will have been shut down by then. Whoever finds the next one should keep it hush-hush for a month or so ;-)

BTW, backcountry hasn't sold out of summerlites. They just don't carry them for some reason. At least they haven't for the past year or so. Kinda strange, because I would think they would be a big seller.

Especially at 40% off ;-)

interresting on 03/02/2009 21:15:04 MST Print View

the new code worked for me using ie but the interresting thing is its case sensitive

i had to type the code in in capital letters

either way $83.00 for a lightyear 40 down bag is worth a little extra typing

actually it was purchased for a friend but a good deal either way

Awesome Deal on 03/02/2009 22:41:31 MST Print View

Thanks guys. New member here and glad I found these forums. Lots of good info. Rei is also having a 20% member sale + 4.99 flat rate shipping so between these two sites, it'll be a big help getting me outfitted on the cheap. Just bought REI QD T2 tent from REI and a Big Agnes Horse Thief. It's going to be hard not to visit again.

Once more into the breach on 03/02/2009 23:20:03 MST Print View

Well, another successful foray--a Western Mountaineering Versalite. In Regular, they only had right zip, but at that price I'll learn to use it. I considered the no-payments-for-90-days, but was uncertain if that involved interest charges.

This thing has to quit soon!

I have only so much will-power!

PLEASE, can everyone refrain from using the word "Versalite" in this post! :-)

Versalite, versalite. I have no use for a heavy bag, although I'd love to have another WM. My Megalite gets here Thursday. Wish they had something lighter.

What's the next valid code? on 03/03/2009 09:44:18 MST Print View

Fellows,
Code 3M5-1-7XKL5 is now invalid (at least for me).

I'm trying to buy another 52 sleeping bags, 75 stoves and 2,163 pairs of smartwool socks and, darn it, I can't get that discount.

So - what's the next valid code?

Thanks,
Marty Cooperman

Joe,

You've been wanting one of those Wm's for a while now.....congrats.

I'm pretty much all set for now....though my brother is coming to town and wants to go backpacking, so I might just HAVE to buy some gear for when he's here. hahah.

Easily justified.
