EMS Mountain Light -20 degree sleeping bag (Yes, I said minus 20!) on 07/25/2013 16:54:42 MDT Print View

Picked this up not too long ago on the EMS return shelf so it has a black "X" on it. I'm not sure that I would ever use a bag this warm so I guess you could classify this an an impulse buy. Anyway, I just found out Monday that I am laid off so the money I spent on this bag is really screamin' at me.
The bag is in very nice shape. The sales person said that based on style it was probably five years old. She also said that she is familiar with the customer and the bag was probably used only a "couple of times" each year and probably washed every year they had it. (This would explain why the tag is mostly unreadable). Features...
800 fill power goose down
Pertex Quantum Endurance
Radial baffle construction
Has over 6" loft throughout bag with about 11" at footbox
Zipper opens both ways
Very generous draft tubes
inside pocket to secure wallet or whatever
Color is gray
Would like to get $200 shipped ConUS

Sorry to hear of your misfortune. I hope you find an opportunity soon. Quite the bag. I am never out in extreme cold so not useful for me. All it takes is one buyer and I am sure they will find you.

offers? on 07/27/2013 20:21:41 MDT Print View

Anyone have a reasonable offer? I know it's the wrong time of the year to be thinking minus 20 but this way you'll have it when you need it! No lines, no waiting...

Maybe post this up in MYOG.

I would think that there would be at least 2lb of down in there, which would make it about $6.00 an ounce.
