need various altitude gear

9:18 p.m. on December 1, 2004 (EST)

Hi, I need various altitude gear for a mountain trip. If you live in north-east (say within 1-2 hours of north-east NJ), that would be even better, as something should probably be "test-fitted". I would like to deal with just 1-2 parties, say someone who has a ton of extra gear.

I need:
double plastic boots (my shoe size 8.5) plus gaiters; fleece clothing (size medium);
expedition-style suit (size medium);
mitts/over-mitts; backpack (75+20 litre) prefer it holds ice-axe/crampons (although the ice-axe/crampons I already have);
also possibly -20* sleeping bag + thermarest pad; also possibly collapsible ski-poles);

please email me, indicate brand/model, condition, pricing .....thnkx

May have some things that would work for you, if you can flex some of your requirements a bit. They are, as follows:

1) several pieces of fleece, all either brand new, never used or condition is excellent+ and all sizes are men's Medium; pieces are:

(a) Marmot Alpinist 200 wgt. Polartec jacket, has pit zips, collar w/ drawstring, zippered pockets, weather flap behind zipper, drawstring hem adjustment, nylon reinforced shoulders and elbows (NOTE - worn about 5 times)...$65;

(b) Marmot 100 wgt. Polartec jkt, zip pockets, flap behind zipper, drawstring at hem, zippered outside pockets (NOTE -worn about 20 times)... $40;

(c) Lowe 200 wgt. fleece pants, full side zips (NOTE - never worn)... $30;

(d) North Face Denali jacket, 300 wgt. fleece, weather flap behind zipper, 2 zippered outside pockets, 1 zippered chest pocket, nylon reinforced shoulder and elbows (NOTE - this piece is in very good condition, as I've worn it several times)...$50;

e) Moonstone HP 200 wgt. pullover, deep chest sipper, pit zips(NOTE - worn about 5 times)...$30

2) expedition-style suit = don't have BUT do have:

(a) Mountain Hardware Sub-zero Parka, fully baffled down parka (considerably longer than a jacket), never worn...$200 (could combine w/ insulated pants = same as suit)

(b) Mountain Hardward Sub-zero vest, fully baffled, worn about 4 times, zippered external pockets, lycra at shoulders for snugger fit (NOTE - has one inconsequential snag along zipper track but does not affect performance and no down leakage)...$45

What size Thermarest are you looking for and how thick - I have a couple different ones.


- have 4 season Mtn, Hardware Trango 2 tent for sale, as new, used 2 times...$275;

- have Dana Designs Terraplane (95 L. - 5800 for sale also, very good condition w/ one wear spot but does not affect performance and could be easily repaired, as desired, easily holds ice gear, frequently reviewed as arguably the best big load pack on the planet...$190

Finally, all my stuff is "high-end" gear, extremely functional and priced better than I could find same items (used) anywhere on web.

Reason for selling : I was seriously hurt last May in a horseback riding accident and will not regain full use of right side from waist down. Any furture "big time" climbing trips are now out of question, as is most all winter activities.

Gear originally purchased for several serious mountaineering trips that were planned but never happened and had intended to use for future trips had I not been hurt.

Looking to sell quickly so I can get into extremely lightweight backpacking that I hope my body can tolerate, even if just on local trips. As such, could make some attractive "package" $$$ should you be interested.

I live in West Virginia, so "test fit" probably not practical unless there is a resaonable mid-point and you would be almost assurred to buy if itmes fit. FYI: I'm about 6'1", 165#, 33" waist, 32/33" inseam, 40" chest and 32" shirt inseam. In other words, about a "true" medium as listed by most manfacturers. All above clothing fits just about right for insulation and freedom of movvement - nothing is tight or binding as I add layers, walk or do climbing movements - since some of this stuff has never been used out-of doors, I'm basing my judgement on trying pieces on indoors and climmbing on bedroom climbing wall (8' high and 20' long).

Well, hope this info will give you enoug to determine your interest. Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Thanks for consideration.
