Thanks for the tip, but I'm probably better off saving my money and not getting the item (prolite xs) anyway. Yesterday's item (rainshadow 2) is a different story. I would've loved to get that at that price. Perhaps the problem was that I didn't follow the instructions to a t, but after looking at my sent items it appears that I did.

Josh, I got it. insulated pants have been on my to-get list for awhile, and at this price these were worth checking out. =)

I didn't get the other 2 items I put in for though.

Rules change of subject line on 06/07/2011 13:20:31 MDT Print View

Am I the only that didn't notice the rule change of the subject line for the sale? Yesterday it wasn't like that. Just a little frustrated I guess because I didn't notice that the rules changed of the subject line from yesterdays sale.

I guess tomorrow I will read the rules of sale again because it might change again from the last two sales.


1. Email to usedgear -at- backpackinglight -dot- com with the item number(s) you are interested. Subject line of email MUST read:

BPL June 2011 Used Gear 19, 23*

* (where "19" and "23" are the item(s) you are interested in)

size RAB Salomon on 06/07/2011 13:27:27 MDT Print View

Any chance of an approximate size of the RAB and Salomon down jackets?

The subject line rule was the same yesterday as it was today.

RAB and Salomon jackets appear to be size medium.

All items have now been listed. There weren't enough backpacks or accessories to be worthy of yet a third day of sales, sorry to have slightly misled with that.

is there any way you can tell for sure what model the arcteryx softshell is?

There is a huge difference in quality between the gamma mx and say, the epslion hoody.

Item 76 has been re-listed (Simblissity Gaiters)

The RAB Neutrino(?) jacket is in fact size medium

The Salomon Minim is size large

The Arc'Teryx is almost certainly a Gamma MX Hoody and it is black, size men's medium

Really?! I didn't get the items I e-mailed for because I only listed the item numbers in the subject line?!

All that was required was to list items in the subject line.

Poor Sam, he will think twice next time he is asked to list a bunch of gear to this unruly mob. He probably doesn't get paid enough for this kind of abuse.
