Anyone need some metho? I have a five litre bottle with about half a litre gone. I don't use the stuff any more, and can't take it to Tassie.
Anyone who wants it can pick it up from me at work in Keysborough (Vic) within the next two weeks, otherwise it'll probably get dumped.

Hi guys,

Anybody want one sealskin waterproof breathable sock (US 11), a modified x frame with a leak, a mini compass and a topographic map of Songsvann (north of Oslo, Norway)?

If not, I might chuck it all in 7 days time.

Jeremy.

I may be buying a new top for this winter
On the house rule of one in one out I will have a couple of older style P'Tec 100 tops available soon
Mountain Designs shawl collar top with added patch pocket on LH side
Snowgum Bushshirt also with added pocket
Both XL
A bit ragged but with years of life left in them and despite the spark and mouse holes in the bush shirt perfectly functional.

I've got a destroyed Big Agnes Air core insulated mat up for grabs, I have cut off the valve for a warranty claim as the mat had developed a large number of leaks. The upside is that it has a bunch of primaloft inside that may be repurposable for MYOG if you have the inclination, or you could have a go at reattaching the valve and fixing the holes, which is probably more trouble than it's worth.

Pickup from melb or $13 postage (I can get postage down to $8 if I lop off some weight)

I've got some Black Diamond Ski Gloves if anyone wants them.

Pretty much brand new conditon. Catch is, it's only the leather exterior.

But if you have your own liners to put in the, they'd be awesome.

You cover post, they're yours :)

Im not sure of the rules for pay it forward but I have an old Jackaroo Pack that I am happy to give away if the recipient covers postage.

I was given this by a friend when i started hiking and when I went to give it back to him (once I had my own packs) he didn't want it back and said to use it as a spare so I would like to see it go to another person who is starting out and for that person to also eventually pass it on once they have upgraded etc. Obviously I can't control this but I am happy to trust the integrity of the bushwalk.com community ;)

As I said it is branded Jackaroo, it is canvas so its very robust, it only weighs 2.3kg's which isn't bad for a pack of this construction. Id take a guess and suggest it is Aussie made using Aussie canvas but I could be wrong. I don't know its volume but it is similar in volume to my Osprey 65ltr pack.

Sorry for the lack of photos but here it is as best as I can display.

I will probably regret giving this away one day but I can't bring it myself to sell it when my friend was so generous to give it to me in the first place. Also, it is in very good condition. All but as new condition id suggest and very comfortable.

PM me if you fit the criteria I outlined at the start :)

Cecile and I are really having a huge clean-up
The Black Diamond gloves I received from jdeks are [ after using for a week or two; ] too small, so moving them on. My old cooking set is here too. Big SIGG dixie plus 2 Trangia pots and an old Trangia pot lifter. Home made carry sack included.
Also I have a collection of odd gloves I have accumulated over the years as I lose or find stuff Assorted L & R/H in various weights if they are of use to any body with missing gloves
I'll list other PIF stuff as I find it
@ mickellay Any kids stuff I'll put in the 5 kilo bags so no need to reply here unless you want the singleton gloves

Snowboard pants
XL Quicksilver about 5 years old, My pants get hard treatment so these have a repair on the leg hem. Need retreating with Nikwax
Now too big for me
Yellow, quite yellow in fact. These are the pants I wore most of the ski season and they are quite warm. Windproof and water resistant but not waterproof

Excellent wind proof layer over thick liners, if you want them do you also want all my spare singletons??
Really good gloves but too short in the fingers for me

Hi Moondog,
Thanks for the package mate. The top fitted great and thanks for the bonus gear, most can be put to good use. Much appreciated.

Not sure if this is of value to anyone but I know a lot of clever forum members make their own gear and it is only going in the bin.

This is the inner fabric of a MacPac microlight 2 person tent. We have cut off the floor to keep and use but the rest of the inner is of no use to us but the fabric is in excellent nick. There is mesh and nylon. Zippers have been cut through. Postage wouldn't be much. Let us know if you want more detail.

Not really interested in the tent itself but I could use the clip loops and toggles from it
How much for postage ??

Happy to cut off the toggles etc and post them. Don't imagine it will cost much but will check on Monday and let you know. That way if anyone wants the tent fabric it's still available.
