    Sale at BPL

    There is a big sale over at BPL. I don't know how good these prices are compared to what you could find on similar items elsewhere on the web. But some of the prices are excellent for BPL.

    For example, that Cocoon Pro 60 "Parka" has proven to be one of my all time fav pieces of gear, considering the warmth/weight AND it is Polarguard and WPB( NOT seam sealed). It has done a fine job for me even when actually wet. But the regular price seems way high at $239, but sale price is $129. Also, that Pro 90 Balaclava looks pretty good at reg $34, now $24. There are a few good sale prices on other items like Ti pots. Might be worth looking at.
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

    I agree w/ what BB said about the Cocoon Pro 60 "Parka"! I love mine!
    I waited until I could get it on sale too.
    And the balaclava is great too! I have the 90 version & did modifications to it (pictures in my gallery).
    Good stuff! Very good warmth to weight!
    don`t leave the CREATOR out of the creation!

    The parka is only available in SMALL. I was going to order balaclava, but they wanted $12.60 to ship it. That's just too much for one 2 oz item.

    Yes, I see that now. Pretty useless for most of us. They have a Caldera Cone on sale, but they don't have the pot that goes with it for sale that I can see, so, not much savings there.
