One of my sleeping bag compression sack's plastic cord lock snapped and I went on to Aliexpress to buy 3 for extra redundancy (at US 75c 'each'). Didn't realise that the 'each' by their definition was a bag of 10. So now I have 30 of these little things on my hand. They sure can come in handy but 30 is still way more than I will ever need (before the plastic hardens, deteriorates in the drawer and pollute the environment for no reason). So does anyone need a few of these? Given the cost economics in relation to the value of the item, I'm happy to share 20 of them but please don't make me mail with 1 in each envelope. Maybe in 4-5 or more unit lots? Let me know how many you need. Of course, 75c can get you 10 via Aliexpress with free postage... I still can't get my head around this!

Spec: Approx 22mm in height fully released and 12mm wide. The oval opening is around 3x6mm, so will likely to be a bit tight for anything thicker than a pair of 2.5mm cord. Works fine for the narrow flat draw ribbon on my sleeping bag stuff sack.

Hey guys, I haven't yet paid it forward from when I got some stuff from Moondog55 ages ago, so hopefully this can make up for some of it. All free but I will ask for postage costs if it's above $10.


The reject shop frypan, bought as a set of three, never used the little one, not bad weight if you're into frying stuff on the trail. It's supposedly Carbon steel non-stick. Teflon coating. About 18cm diameter.
IMAG0520.jpg

IMAG0519.jpg


Stainless steel billy with lid. Never used. full to the brim it's 1.5L usable space probably about 1.2L
IMAG0517.jpg

IMAG0518.jpg


Very low aluminium pot/pan thing. no idea where this came from just found it in the back of my wardrobe, must have had it for a long time, don't remember ever using it. probably useful as an ultralight frypan, or dry-baking dish with a larger pot. 53mm height. 145mm diameter.
IMAG0515.jpg

IMAG0516.jpg


Gone Sol Escape Bivvy, used a few times, been stored for quite awhile, I haven't yet opened it to see how it looks, although it's been stored on a clean dry shelf so there shouldn't be any issue.
IMAG0514.jpg


No name brand utility knife, has knife, cork screw, Phillips head, nail file, can opener, another can opener with flat head screw driver, scissors, saw, and a thing I don't know what is. Case weighs 5 grams.

Need to get rid of this pillow, neither myself or my partner manage to sleep a whole night on it but it's very comfortable for the first hour!

For anyone who likes a firm pillow this could suit well. Weighs 102g.

It's always useful to have an extra charger or two, depending on how many batteries you have.

I bought a hiking shirt during the aliexpress singles day sales, I should have known size large wasn't going to be true to size. More suited to a medium, I'll part with it for postage, or pickup in Melbourne. Khaki colour, quality seems decent.

https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Spring- ... 50891.html

As an aside, does anyone know of a good long sleeve hiking shirt with sleeves that button up to short sleeves? I've looked for ages, and apart from the Columbia PFG I havent found anything

Might be worth having a look at Rivers big Fish shirts. LS buttons up and generous fit. Fast drying.

Having a drawer cleanup and found a few GPS cables that might be of use to someone

Garmin ETREX to serial port X 1

IMG_1601.JPG


Garmin 4 pin round to serial port x 1 (cable nearly 2 metres long!)

IMG_1602.JPG


4 Pin Magellan to serial port x 1

IMG_1600.JPG


Garmin Special - 4 pin Round PLUS Etrex flat -> USB - handy if you run both a Etrex and a 60CSX or similar. These came as specials from GPS OZ and may need drivers - worked on WIN7. I may be able to find the drivers somewhere.

IMG_1603.JPG


Also a Magellan Explorist XL GPS with adapter to stick on windscreen plus cable to power from Cigarette Lighter and USB Cable to computer (one for the nerds as I think you can get shape files onto these).

I have two packs surplus to my needs.

1. GONE Is a Kathmandu Vardo, "L" in size which I would think is 70-75L. This pack was kindly given to me through Pay it forward a few years ago (apologies I can't remember your name mate, but thanks!!) I have upgraded as I planned so am happy to pass it on. It has a main sack as well as inside and outside pockets in the lid.

2. Is an older Jansport pack. 60ish litres at a guess. Not much good as a serious overnight pack but someone may have a use for it? Possibly a day pack or just for car camping, gear storage or venison hauling? It was a hand me down and has been sitting around for a while but hardly ever used. As with the Kathmandu, it has the main sack with a divider and both inside out outside pockets in the lid.

Pick up can probably be arranged for Glen Iris, Albert Park or Dandenong. The Kathmandu could be worth posting?

1. GONE

2.

Does anybody want a "Project" tent??
The big orange tent i bought for my brother is no longer needed and I don't want it.
A bit faded from the original bright orange but still OK weatherwise
9 * 9 external frame pyramid, PVC floor and cotton walls/roof
I don't have the energy to take on another project this large.
If I was going to tho it would be to spilt it, add in a centre section and then sew in a short wall to give much more usable height
Pick-up only naturally.

Scrapa SL M3 boots

Postby newhue » Sun 23 Apr, 2017 5:17 pm

Not sure what Scarpa did to these, but unfortunately they just don't fit like the original Scrapa SL. They are 44BXX, wide sole for Australians. It seems the rubber toe doesn't allow for any stretch so if your a tad smaller than a 44, or willing to have a go then their yours. They are a few years old but have only done perhaps 300km. The sole is not deleminating but the leather is a bit beat up, still they will last for a long long time yet. No inners as I use insert

Been cleaning out my brothers house after the funeral.
I have a few pieces of older gear in usable condition I don't need and don't want to keep
US army NYCO wind pants dyed purple size Medium Regular
M-65 trouser liners Large Long; will fit inside the wind pants for a very warm set. Cecile has a pair in her luggage for me and I have one set already
Lowe Alpine Goretex overpants, still servicable Large/Extra large. LW and still waterproof but starting to blister a little, pull-on type with zippers at the ankle.
pick-up or I'll post, will fit in a 3kg satchel
For those of you not familiar with the M-65 pants liners they have buttons down the side so they can be added while still wearing boots, it being much quicker to drop your pants than take off a pair of boots.

I have a Primus Fuel Bottle (600ml version) if any one wants it.

It has been used previously to carry a bit of extra unleaded fuel for my trail bike but I have since got a long range tank and fuel bladder it has sat unused for a while. I was keeping it in case I ever changed over from gas but I do not see that happening so hopefully someone else can use it. It weighs in at 115g.

Pickup from Coorparoo in Brisbane.
