Pack Deals

Well we have been discussing packs, so I thought I would point out that 
the new Sierra Trading Post catalog has some great deals.  For those of 
you who may not be familiar with it, STP is a catalog (I think they do 
have a couple of stores out West) which deals in closeouts, irregulars, 
etc that the company has to get rid of (new model year, different colors, 
etc) so they offer terrific prices.  The downside is that they often run 
out of stuff quickly and don't get more in.

Anyway, they have a couple of packs that we have been discussing:

-on page 19 - the Kelty Super Tioga external frame pack for $109
-on page 22 the Lowe Contour IV for $183, Kanga Himal for $224, and 
Sentinal (good for women and smaller people) for ~$130
All great deals

They also have some good Sierra Designs (no relation between the 2 
companies to my knowledge), Kelty, and Marmot sleeping 
bags and some good deals on some tents - including the fantastic Kelty 
Ultralight (2 TALL people, ~4.5lbs) for $127

Be forewarned though, STP has always been mainly clothing, so don't 
expect a Campmor catalog.  Their phone # is 307-775-8000 and their hours 
are 5AM-10PM mountain time.  I ordered some stuff a couple of weeks ago 
and had some trouble getting through.  This catalog has some really great 
goodies, so you may have to be persistent (or wake up early).

good luck (and if you don't get this catalog - it is worth it!!)
