Well, yes, but this is Gear DEALS, not an open marketing channel.
What special discount or other DEAL are you offering to BPL members to justify having this promo here?

Everyone please pack those glass bottles back out.

I haven't found a single layer of reflectix to be any good at keeping things cold for long. 35 minutes so for my hot things

rehydrating.


What's the temp claim here?

I gave up about 10 year ago carrying beer on trips, only carry top shelf drinks since then.

Double Walled Cooler on 06/14/2013 18:40:37 MDT Print View

Good thing its double walled...and it keeps em cold for hours. Throw a frozen water bottle in there and it'll keep it cold all day long. At 3.4 oz its worth the weight for a cold beer in camp.

Hey Rog-

A discounted price and free shipping.

Seems like BPL doesn't want me sharing gear deals. We'll kill it.

Not here to break the rules. Thought I'd share a deal.

David,

Can you at least repost the link to the vid, since I can't find this thing on your site?

David,

I am only kidding, I would use this on overnighters, its just on most trips my pack is heavy enough.

Plenty of folk on here will be interested.

Nice creative idea. Would like to know some temp data before I throw down $25 for it though.

Thanks on 06/14/2013 19:44:48 MDT Print View

Thanks Rick.

We've got some people that are interested in doing reviews for their blogs. We'll let that info come back around on a more organic route.

The cooler rocks and I was excited to share a deal with BPL members. Many of you have used our other products. Thanks. The info is out there.

Roger...sorry for not being more specific.

Hi david

Oh, it's OK if there is some sort of deal offered, but you need to put the offer in the posting, not in a video. That's all.

Cheers

New product promotion on 06/15/2013 10:57:18 MDT Print View

Just put your product promotion in the Gear forum, along side Caffin's tunnel tent promotion. See here on how to promote products on BPL:

Free marketing on BPL is simply a matter of posting on the right forum.

Who moderates the moderator?

"Just put your product promotion in the Gear forum, along side Caffin's tunnel tent promotion."

Don't want to accuse you of being sarcastic when I don't know for sure, but yes, that's exactly the point. If David had posted what he posted, word for word, in "Gear," there would have been no issue at all. New gear, cool.

But if you post in gear deals, you have to be offering some kind of deal. Seems fair. Now, David was offering a deal, it just wasn't clear from his post (you had to watch the vid to see that a deal was being offered). You can't really expect the moderator to go look at vids to see whether or not a deal was being offered.

Instead of deleting his post, David could have simply added the deal in the post language and there wouldn't have been any issue at all.

In the end, Roger did what he's supposed to do as a moderator, David made an inadvertent error by not posting the deal in the post (he is offering one, so he posted in the right place). Nothing really wrong on either end. So I'm hoping this doesn't turn into yet another mudslinging thread for no real reason.

And I can't wait to get my coolers and try them out. They shipped today.
