WTB: Used Down Bag / Quilt, 25-30* on 03/08/2013 09:56:31 MST Print View

Used down sleeping bag or quilt for 2-3 season Midwest use. Haven't used a quilt before but I'd be willing to try it. Must fit 6'1" / 180# user, some regulars work and some are tight - longs all work. 25 - 30° rating, under 2.5#, preferably closer to 2#. Montbell, WM, REI, Enlightened Equipment, Marmot are all good - 700fp or higher preferred. No DIY projects please.

I'm in school and paying for school right now, so budget is the biggest concern. I can't really pay more than about $150 shipped, and I'd have to sell my current cold / bad weather synth bag at that. I don't have email access currently - service trip for spring break - but please post here or PM me and I will return PMs starting March 17.

I have a friend looking for a down bag as well for his first trip this May. He is a size regular and looking for about the same temperature range. He can't pay over $75; if you happen to have any cheaper bags, keep him in mind as well.

I have a rarely-used Stoic Somnus 30. Long. 800FP. $135. 1 lb 9 oz.

Send PM if interested.

What school do you attend? I'm open to offering a discount if you've chosen schools wisely.

PM'ed back Bill. Last chance I'll have to look at this for a week - hit the thread with any offers! I'd love to come back and see a few!

Hey Bill, I've PM'ed twice but haven't heard back from you. I'm still interested in the Somnus, but if I don't hear back by Friday or received any other offers I'll take the MH bag. Thanks all!

Purchased - thanks! on 04/01/2013 10:56:08 MDT Print View

I received a ton of offers for bags, but eventually went with a modified WM Highlite from Jay. Without the zipper the long version comes in at 18 oz and works as a quilt / bag hybrid.

My friend was also able to get a Montbell #2 thanks to Roger.

Thanks for all the offers - BPL is the best!

WM Highlite and Montbell #2 Received on 04/08/2013 10:01:23 MDT Print View

Got the Montbell bag last week and the Highlite this morning. Both bags were as described and lofted great. Can't wait to get out on the trails and test them out! Thanks!
