  • Lost: Black sunglasses

    Lost between Schafer campsite and Pemberton. They are glorified with cord.

  • For Sale: Men’s Mountain Designs Murray River Rain Jacket

    Generally good condition.  The lining has a small area of wear where it has been rubbing against something.

    The original advertising for this jacket reads: “From a light mist to a downpour the Men’s Mountain Designs Murray River Rain Jacket will keep you dry. It’s windproof and waterproof with fully sealed seams for extra protection.

    Design features:
    • Waterproof to 5000mm, it’s able to withstand medium to heavy rain and storms
    • Fully sealed seams
    • Made from Repel™ Storm 2 Layer Ripstop 20D Nylon
    • Mesh lined for extra comfort
    • Windproof, lightweight and breathable
    • Detachable adjustable hood
    • Adjustable cuffs and hem
    • Side pockets
    • YKK centre front zip ”

    I personally found that this jacket met my expectations for being windproof and being rain resistant.  When combined with my puffer vest in the quite cold evenings I was very happy with how comfortable I remained.

  • For Sale: Osprey Aether 85 Backpack including rain cover

    This pack is the “M” size
    check out the sizing at this site:
