Trade Vexilar fl-8slt for really good/light sleeping bag

9 posts in this topic

I've got a Vexilar fl-8slt three color flasher for trade for a Western Mountaineering Badger or a Marmot Helium Long sleeping bag. The flasher is maybe seven years old or so and is in perfect shape. It has a new batter as of about two months ago. I'd consider other bags, but I'll only consider down bags that are rated to approximately 20 degrees, weigh about two pounds, and pack up about the size of a loaf of bread.

If interested, e-mail me at scootsfishing at yahoo

nitrokfa, yep I still have it. Interested?

hamre, nope- sorry, not interested in a Coleman. I'm looking for a Marmot, Western Mountaineering, or North Face bag.

nit, can you refer me to where I can look at the specs of that bag? I did a search and can't find anything about it. I'm looking for a bag that's rated for 10-20 degrees and weighs about 2 lbs. I'd prefer a down bag, but would consider synthetic if it packs small enough and is light enough.

I looked last night online I couldn't find the same bag either. the bag says k2 sports on it I used it about 5 years ago for opener by Ely in a tent with no heater well below freezing outside I stayed toasty. I can email you pics, I will probably be off the computer for a while so if you can call me 763 242-2763

Thanks for the offer, but I want to stick with one of the bags I know about and can get specs on. In particular, I'm really picky about the weight of the bag- it has to be about 2 lbs. Given the description of your bag, I'd doubt that's the case for it.

Thanks for your interest, but I'm going to pass on this bag.

    • Well looks like the draft came and went without much fireworks, sounds like Fletcher didn't like any of the offers so he is going to wait to make a move. Hard to see us fitting under the cap or filling out a full team without moving Scandella or Pommers so we will see what happens.

      Of course drafting from the 3rd round on doesn't lead to many super exciting players but it sound like we got a couple midgets with some skill and several projects. Our big off season move might have been keeping everyone through expansion. 
    • My only concern is the timing of all of this. We seem to be loading up for a run in the next year or two but the Warriors are still sitting there stacked beyond belief.  Can we add enough and develop our young guys enough to be a legit threat to the Warriors.  Lebron, Irving, and Love barely made the Warriors break a sweat in the finals.  I'd like to see them time their final acquisitions to correspond with the end of the Warriors run. 
    • Maybe line up all the non-compliant VW's and gas 'em all out with diesel fumes. 
    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
