Gearing up for a mixed bag of cold weather pursuits. Let me know if you've got any of the below before I go spend a small fortune on the same stuff brand new.

Shelter: pretty much looking for specifically the MLD Solomid, but can't hurt to ask if you have something very similar. Cuben or Silnylon.

Parka: preferably 4-7oz of 800+ down, as light as possible. E.g. Rab Infinity, Golite Bitterroot. Size Small or Medium. By parka I mean any baffled down jacket with a hood, not necessarily extra long.

Xtherm: size S preferred, otherwise regular.

Whisperlite: Will need a 16 or 20oz fuel bottle as well.

Thanks,
Misha

Misha,
I collect old stoves and acquired a nice running Int'l a year ago I'd sale. I got it because it had an old yeller pump. I've used it maybe once to check it out, runs smooth and blue, I still have my old Int'l I got new in '89. I'll see if I have a pump to match, a good gray/black one. I should have a nice extra 22oz. MSR fuel bottle. I'll send a PM to you. I cannot check personal email until tonight.

Rab's sizing. on 03/09/2013 01:37:34 MST Print View

Misha,

Make sure you double-check the sizing on Rab's down jackets as they run small compared to American sizes. I've got a large listed here with actual dimensions measured:

Good luck with your winter treks!

Got a Whisperlite (thanks Hiker Duane) and a new xtherm.

Still looking for an MLD Solomid and, if possible, a size small Golite Bitterroot or Medium Rab Infinity.

Thanks!

You aren't set up for PMs, yet.

Send me an email about a SoloMid to: sgparis2010 at gmail dot com

Odd, I have been receiving PMs from other users without any issues. Either way, I emailed you last night -- look forward to hearing about what you have.

They worked for me with Misha.
Misha, let me know if the stove is not what you expect. When I ran it, it ran better than my personal one, but that still does not mean anything. Come to the Sierra for a trip if you can squeeze it in.
