I really need to sell some gear off. It is costing me to store it now and money is getting tight. Feel free to email me if there is something you are looking for that is not on the list.

Therm-a-Rest NeoAir XLite: Large size, new in box. A friend got this as a replacement for his original style NeoAir and did not want the mummy cut so asked me to trade for my original Large as I was happy with my XLite. I donít need two and donít see my kids ever needing this size.

Trail Designs Sidewinder Ti-Tri w/Inferno add-on: (Made for wood-burning) Also comes with Open Country 3 Cup Hard Anodized Pot, pot lifter, insulated cozy and stuff sack to keep it all in one place and your pack clean. Sell for $85.00 shipped CONUS
http://www.backpackgeartest.org/reviews....strella


Platypus CleanStream Gravity Filter: I bought this filter in 2010 (before they changed the name to GravityWorks) and used it on about 10 trips, which on a couple trips a few of our forum members got to see and use it. I loved it but I only used it that summer as I had to help another writer with his huge water treatment article which saw me get a Sawyer gravity system and a Sawyer 3-in-1 that I used to make yet another gravity system. When I bought it I also purchased two extra filter cartridges one of which I will send also (sealed in box). (There is nothing at all wrong with the one it has right now.) Sell all for $95.00 shipped CONUS.


Platypus  GravityWorks  Filter: I got this just to use (and review) this summer. I like it a lot but donít need it as I have the home-made system too. Read about it here.
http://www.backpackgeartest.org/reviews....strella
Sell for $65.00 shipped CONUS.


Sawyer 2L Complete Water Filtration System: 13 oz (369 g) w/ two (clean and dirty) reservoirs, filter cartridge and hose. Used only two times. (See above.) These are not the fastest gravity systems (the Platypus systems are faster) but they are the most robust. Sell for $65.00 shipped CONUS.
http://www.rei.com/product....2-liter
You can get one of these to make it a 4 L system.

Katadyn Vario: This was a test filter written about here:
http://www.backpackgeartest.org/reviews....strella
I changed the cartridge after that test was done and have only used it a couple times since as I am always trying new gear. The cartridge in it is still good plus I have a new in-box replacement to send too. Sell all for $70.00 shipped CONUS.


MontBell Alpinist Bivy: Brand new, never taken from stuff sack. I bought this when I thought I was going to test a bunch of floorless shelters and tarps for BPL. Thankfully I did not have to do it so this is unneeded. Sell for $95.00 shipped CONUS


Big Agnes Insulated Air Core pads: size Petite (20 x 66) two of them, like new, these were my childrenís and were only used a few times. They outgrew them too fast! Has stuff sacks and repair kits. Sell for $45.00 each, shipped CONUS


Katadyn Mini Ceramic Water Microfilter: Almost new, in box. Used one time to test and time output and evaluate for an article. Sell for $70.00 shipped CONUS


MSR MIOX Water Purifier: Almost new, in box. Used one time to test and evaluate for an article. Personally I think this is smarter for emergency preparedness (it kills viruses) than backpacking, unless you need to make a lot of safe water at one time. Sell for $85.00 shipped CONUS

What is the price on the x-lite?

Have you ever used it or any mummy style pad in a hammock?

Yes it does JC,

Oops. The XLite is $125.00 shipped CONUS. I have never used a hammock. Some day I should as trees are plentiful here.

Sawyer Squeeze: complete system, all bags, caps, cleaning syringe plus the optional in-line adaptors to use it inline or as a gravity system (as I was thinking of doing that). I also will include an adapter I made to allow it to be used directly into a Platypus bottle or bag.  I have rarely used this as it really is not great for our lakes, better for rivers and streams. Sell for $30.00 shipped CONUS

Sawyer Personal Water Bottle Filter (new): I bought two of these, one I used a lot and then modded with an AquaStraw, this one has never been used. Has the faucet backflush adaptor, not the syringe backflush device of this yearsí. (Faucet is better.) Sell for $30.00 shipped CONUS
