    The Air Core Plus is out of stock as well. I've been wanting to get my grubby hands on some of that stuff and now's my excuse since it's on sale. But, alas, it isn't to be had. Foiled again!

    If I'm not mistaken, I believe some of the HF members have found bulk sources for at least some of the line BPL.com is selling as bear bag line, etc, & at a much better price.

    Maybe some of those that really got into all the line types will remember were to find it. I know that someone bought a grey line that appereared to be the exsact same stuff that I bought from BPL.com.

    Maybe a small group buy? It would be especially easy to redistribute if several going to Mt Rogers wanted some.

    Quite welcome. Glad you found it useful. I got a wool hoodie at 40% off that I wouldn't have bought at the full price.
    BTW, it has thumb loops, so it works kinda like the "wristies" that Shug uses & Grizz & others are making! Cool!!!

    I was just in my local ****'s Sporting Goods and they had marked their Outdoor Research dry bags down. They had the Hydroseal Pack Sacks (all sizes) marked down to $2.97 each (reg $13-$22). They also had some OR silicone-coated nylon Helium Ditty 3 bag sets marked down to $2.97 (reg $22). It may just be the local store, but if you have a store near you they may have marked their's down too.They also had Sea to Summit dry bags marked down.

    I JUST LEFT ****'s! I didn't see the bags but I have some of those OR drybags, I'd call them light duty kayak bags, they are durable. My ****'s also had an MSR Windpro for $50, that is a really nice stove for two.
