PIF - Montbell Alpine Light Down Jacket (black) on 04/25/2014 10:22:15 MDT Print View

Back when I was new to BPL in '12 and planning my first AT section-hike, I was fortunate enough to claim a MontBell Alpine Light Down Jacket (size USA L). It wasn't too chilly that year but I am an extremely cold sleeper and this jacket really saved my bacon on some of the nights in the Smokys. The zipper works and there are no rips, tears or stains.

To repay the kindness shown by BPL members, I want to offer this jacket as a PIF. My only stipulation is that you intend to use the jacket, not just re-sell it. BPL members only. All other PIF rules apply...basically, it's yours for the cost of postage.First one to PM or reply to this thread gets the jacket.

Hey Ken! I'll take it! I am only using a fleece combo as insulation at the moment, this is perfect! Thank you!

I would very much appreciate the jacket. I'm a scout leader and am always freezing my backside off on winter hikes. I'd pass it on to a scout in need if I couldn't use it.

I'd be glad to pay for it too.

PIF - North Face Down Jacket blue on 04/29/2014 00:02:18 MDT Print View

How about I keep this going.

I have a North Face down jacket that for some reason just won't sell, it's a little heavier then most here would use, but will keep you warm and is still a great jacket, freshly washed with down soap.

There is one repair job that I did myself by the zipper, but it shouldn't efect the jacket, so who wants it?

down jacket

All PIF rules apply, you pay the shipping.

Please post here and also pm me, the first one to do both will get the jacket.

Thanks, Jack

Looks like John was the first to answer the call, I forgot to mention that the jacket is a large, so if John backs out because of the size then it will be back up for grabs, but for now John has first dibs.

If it falls through because of the size, I am interested. Great offer!

If the NF Down jacket makes it past John and Matthew, I'm interested in it.

I did need a large on 04/29/2014 09:13:05 MDT Print View

Just to let everyone know, I did need a large. If it is like monstrously large or doesn't fit, I'll put it right back on as a PIF.

I'll take the North face vest if it is available. I am definitely in need of an insulating vest. This is awesome!

I've got a pair of Hi-Tec waterproof boots in US 10 that have been gathering dust (see photo..). Never used. I'm sure there is a better home than my closet. Anyone?

Re: PIF - North Face Down Jacket blue on 12/10/2014 16:57:01 MST Print View

Ok...I'm offering the north face down jacket as a PIF again. This winter I'm just not going to use it (I have a different jacket I'll be using).

Whoever wants it, its yours! Shipping should be $5-$7 tops.

(for pics, just look up a few posts)

Update: claimed

I'll take it if still available! Will find something in my closet to pay forward as well when I get home. Love this idea!
