For sale, one brand new, never used, Vortex 5800 backpack.  This now out of production backpack is very highly regarded and reviewed.  Check it out on the interwebs.   When sold new it was almost a $400 pack.

Features include are too many to list but here are a few:

·        Expandable capacity from 5800 to 6310 cubic inches (95L-103L)

·        A hydration pocket

·        Top and bottom loading

·        Polycarbonate frame

·        Two vertical exterior pockets

·        11 points of compression

·        Handy side pockets

·        A detachable day/fanny pack

I was given this pack a few years ago and just never needed it. 

I hope I can move this pack on to a new good home.

Please contact me with any questions.

Thanks and good luck

Yes it is as pictured, green and cream.  The actual pack is pictured.

I'd like to get $140 obo for it.

It is on Craigslist in Nashville and on eBay.  Both ads are getting decent responses.

Are you interested?

$130 is on the high end of the market for these packs.  I think you did REALLY well.  Congratulations.  They rarely break the $100 mark.  Sucks that eBay gets around $15 in fees.

Agreed on my good fortune.  Were you in the bidding?  I really wanted to try to get as much as I could for it as the pack is like it just came off the shelf in 2001. 

It seems that in so many ways, the internet has made the sales of almost anything a buyers market.  EVERYTHING is effectively devalued with the flooding of markets with cheaply produced wares which may or may not be equivalent to older and, arguably, better made products.

Are you interested in other wares?  I have BOXES of stuff left over from my former career.  I need to liquidate it all.

Good chatting with you.

What happened?  I see it is up for auction again.  Flaky buyer?

Is your vortex 5800 still available?  If so, what size is it?
