    FS: eVent Packa $135

    Hello all,

    I'm putting my Event Packa up for sale. If your not familiar with the Packa check it out:

    http://www.thepacka.com/

    Or watch Shug's video on them:

    Here's a picture of me and a shovel. I'm wearing the Packa you'll receive:

    I bought this Packa from another member here on the forum who had only used it a couple of times, and I've only used it a few times when I was up in Olympic N.F. in Washington, so it's practically new. This one is a small, but as you can read on the Packa website the only difference between the sizes is the length of the jacket and the arms. For reference, it's tall enough and the arms are long enough for me and I'm 5'11". I have to say though that I did let out the hem on the cuffs and reinstalled the shock cord so the arms would be longer as I have pretty long arms for my height. I'd say that they are about an inch longer now, and they are plenty long for my monkey arms. The Event is some great stuff, and the packa is a great design that breathes like crazy on it's own, so the combination makes one heck of a movable rain shelter for you and your pack.

    Here's a picture of the modded cuffs:

    I'm selling it for SOLD for shipping anywhere in the US (which is a steal for a Packa in eVent). If you're outside the US let me know and we'll work out the shipping costs. First "I'll take it" here gets it, and I'd be happy to answer any questions.

    Thanks for looking,
    ~Oliver

    If it was not a small, I'd be on it. River Otter looks pretty slender compared to me! I think mine is a large, and I wouldn't really want it much smaller.
    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.

    Yay! Saved by the bell! I thought it might be too small for me, but was starting to think about it for some one else.
