Ok, so L.L. Bean isn't my favorite store but I have a bunch of credit there and saw they had a 20% off sale(code is november20) which ends today!(19th). Plus there's free shipping, and a 10$ gift certif for orders over 50, and returns are easy(ok, enough rationalizing...)
So I bought: Pretzl e+lite, snowpeak 600(with hotlip thing), sea to summit sil-nylon stuff sacks(only at store, couldnt see it online, website kinda sucks), steripen opti.
Good items I didnt buy: big angnes fly creek(1 or 2) copper spur 3.
Things I'm still considering:
these are the only carbon fiber poles I could find. I assume removing the useless peices I could get them to 12 oz, maybe. But is it bad to have "snowshoe" poles?
I also see they have a merino wool hoodie, but it looks heavy, but might buy for casual wear.
Any opinions? Other diamonds in the rough? I also need a knife but, does anyone see a good one there? Light/good shoes?
