This will keep you warm no matter what...

Apres Polar Bear swim? Mostly nude winter hikes?

Yes, I measured from the floor up and 7 inches is what I saw.

Twice as thick as my Nuptse vest...

Old school, don't know if it should be in a museum,

But I have no use for it here on Vancouver Island,

And it takes up too much space in my closet!

Has original stuff sack.

My father is heading to Seattle in Feb,

And can ship from there to save some $.

I have no idea what I should ask for in terms of $,

(suggestions?)

Will consider a trade...

I just want it to have a good home.

Potential trade?:

Lowa Banff Boots, size 10.5 C, non-goretex lined, with added shoe-goo toecap. In great shape with just a few hundred miles on them, but being full leather inside and out, as well as resoleable, they will go for another decade or so if you want them to.

Greetings,

I happen to have some new N.S.E. TENT BOOTIE (S) made by North Face. they are black  extra large rated size 12-13.5.  I was about to list them on ebay but my older sony camera won't down load picts to my new laptop.  If you interesed you can look them up on ebay or google to see them.  there really warm but much to large for me as I wear a 8.5-9.5.  I got the unused from a guy who thought they would fit me but agian, much to large.  I only tried them with socks. come with a mesh bag.  Thanks

Talked to my brother in Santa Cruz, he said he saw one sell for $50 about a month ago.

Found this on ebay compleated auctions, nothing on current auctions:

Vtg SNOW LION Berkeley, CA Shell Parka Coat Jacket  0 bids  $29.99

Found this on google:

Snow lion : Sports Linkup Shop : Snow lionSnow Lion Expedition Grade Down Parka Berkley, Ca. Ref: Snow Lion Expedition Grade Down Parka Berkley, Ca. $75.00. The Snow Lion's Turquoise Mane, ...www.sportslinkup.com/shop/0-Snow-lion-1-NEW.html - Cached

Talked to my brother in Santa Cand he said he saw one sell for $50 about a month ago.

Hope this helps

Nice I used to have a Snow Lion vest when I lived in Alaska in th late 70s. Used it in Yosemite winter camping also, sold it in 82 after not going back to Alaska. Stopped winter camping where it was so cold to need a heavy parka. Its a great coat. I wear layers now instead of one down jacket.

Hi Brian (apeman)

I would be willing to pull that trade,

But would prefer to see a pic of the booties...

Also, we would need to work out timing of shipping,

And the costs...

 

Flash me an email if you have ideas.

Euph

i would love the coat and it would definitely have a good home here. i have one currently that has 5" of loft and by looking at the picture below it has gotten a lot of use and very much love.

i'll give you $50 and pay shipping charges to ct. and if that is not acceptable you can tell me how much money you would like.

I am sorry Jade,

I have made a deal with apeman,

And am currently awaiting his already posted end of it.

Nice to know there is a brother of my (Apeman's) parka out there.

Maybe you two can get together and play inflated sumo... ;)

Just wanted to say thanks to amEuphorbia as our trade for the down parka went as planned.  Great guy, would buy/trade with him any day of the week.  And I must say this coat is the biggest coat I've ever come across as well as being meseum quality.

Thanks for the kind words apeman.

It was a pleasure doing business with you,

And I would do so again without hesitation.

The booties are great for when the temps dip low!
