WTB: golite jam(1or2) or ula conduit, g4 or other used lightweight backpack on 05/28/2009 15:35:14 MDT Print View

I am looking for a:

- ULA conduit (Size: S/M or M/L, both fit 19"torso)

-GoLite Jam2 Size Large

-Gossamer Gear® g4 Size Medium

-other bag to be specified.

I can paypal. Also looking for a lightweight backpack (<2lbs), 3000-3500 \cu in range that can carry an upwards of 25-30lbs (sometimes I have to camel up on water here in the Sonoran desert). It also needs to be fairly durable to stand up to the environment. My torso is 19" long and my waist is 32".

I am looking for a used one to save some $. Let me know what you have, I can paypal as soon as I find a match. WEIGHT, comfort and durability are big factors for me as well as price.

Thanks.

My private messages should work now.

You might add what your torso measurement is, so anyone with a pack will know if it's a candidate.....

I have a great WM Highlite 5'6" that I bought for an ex-g/f (sigh). We broke up shortly there after. Anyway, it's an opportunity for a really fantastic bag. The Highlite is rated to 35 but you will easily bring this below freezing if you have any insulated clothing. With its half-zip you drop your bag weight to 16oz. Can't beat that.

$200+shipping.

Oh, and either the Conduit or Jam2 are great, durable packs. Both made with Dyneema. I've bushwhacked through rough territory and been in the desert with my Jam2. I also had access to the Conduit briefly (same ex-g/f, at least I got the bag back... yeah, whatever) You'll be happy with either one. Just decide if you prefer the zip closure outer pocket of the Jam2 or the Mesh pockets of the Conduit. Maybe, ultimately, the mesh will prove more vulnerable in such prickly conditions. The top closures are different and some minor details as well.

Thanks for the responses! on 05/28/2009 16:37:59 MDT Print View

My torso measures 19" long and my waist around the hips is 32". I also like the g4 backpack...

I really like the wm bag uberkatzen it is basically what I am looking for but it is out of my price range right now. I am going to post some valuables to ebay this afternoon, so if it is around in a couple of weeks when my paypal account is fully replenished then I may take it off your hands.

Please keep up the suggestions/gear offers. Thank You. CHUPA

I have around $120 paypal bucks burning a hole in my pocket. on 05/31/2009 15:08:34 MDT Print View

I have around $120 to spend on a backpack and sleeping bag. I can sew, so damaged gear on the ultra cheap will work. I know someone has to have something they don't use anymore lying around.

I am interested in any down sleeping bag under 1.5lbs (preferably under a pound), quilts are also acceptable.

I am also interested in any backpack that fits a 19"torso and 32" waist. Durable, lightweight, and comfortable.

Thanks for your time. I have the $ waiting in my paypal account. It could be yours soon.

I'm looking for a GoLite Ultra 20 as well. PM me if you got one. This quilt seems to be out of the OP's price range.

Sleeping bag purchased, STILL LOOKING FOR BACKPACK on 06/01/2009 16:26:48 MDT Print View

oknowa I sent you a email just now about the packs.

I purchased a northface down sleeping bag, 1.5#s on ebay for $51.

I still need to find a backpack. Without actually wearing any of these, based on what I have read, I like the ULA conduit (Size: S/M or M/L, both fit 19"torso), then the GoLite Jam2 Size Large, and finally a Gossamer Gear® g4 Size Medium.

Thanks for your help.

Jam1 and circuit on 06/02/2009 14:30:20 MDT Print View

Roger could you send me a pic of the jam1 I am having trouble finding pictures online. Also could you send me the specs or a link to the specs. What size is the pack? Is it the one with just a zip top lid and no side pockets? I can't figure a fair asking price with out this info.

John, could you give me the specs on the circuit. I think that it is to big/heavy for my needs but I could defiantly be wrong since I am not sure how much the old model weighs.

I think we are getting closer, soon I will be back in the wilderness where I am happy...

Hi Michael,

Here's the info on the Circuit. It's in new condition, no snags or tears, I only used it about 6 nights, carrying about 12 lbs in great comfort. I'm selling it due to illness related issues (pneumonia has forced me to take a year off physical activity while I recover).

Weight: 32 oz, 3,750 cu inches/ 60 liter volume total
Volume breakdown:
Main body: 2400 (40l)
Front Mesh pocket: 350
Side Mesh Pockets: 400
Extension collar: 500
Hipbelt pockets: 100

Fully padded backpanel, dyneema cross-rip gridstop, elasticized bellowed front mesh pocket.
Internal Suspension hoop, contoured shoulder straps, drawstring extension collar.

All these specs are from the ULA webpage for the 2008 Circuit.

If you like, I can post some photos.

cheers,
fred

Re: Jam1 and circuit on 06/03/2009 01:59:14 MDT Print View

The Jam1 is pretty much the same size and shape as the Jam2 but without the compression strap and a couple of other refinements. The top is lidless with a drawstring and snaplock closure. Mine would be a bit long in the back for you though.
