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

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.

    • Glad to hear you're back up and running again.          
    • I got my boat back today and it runs great now but the mechanic said I had too many idling hours on it and it had a lot of carbon build up. I have trolled a lot with this motor . It has ran great but I did have  this recent issue with it where I had to bring it in and it runs good now. Mechanic recommended run it more often at higher rpm's.  For those that troll with their main engine,  how often do you run in a higher rpm's? I  use carbon guard  and thought that that would prevent the carbon buildup.  If I trolled for three or four hours at a higher RPM would that be too much ?          
    • Saw some reports from Algoma that looks like fishing has picked up some out there and some bigger fish being caught. I'm not ready for snow yet but I hope we actually get some this year. 
    • Well I got it done. I got some bolts washers and rubber grommets. I drilled holes in the counter top. then brought the bolt up through it put a 1/2in rubber spacer then a washer and bolted right into the bolt holes where the leg levels went. It looks nice and will be nice not having to put the fridge up and down every time a guy moves the ice castle and should hold fine driving down the road.         Nice exactly what I need to finish the project, so the fridge door doesn't fly open when driving down the road.

    •   And it has some sort of virus.
    • The boat is getting lots of use,,,, Heading to Algoma july 29th and back to Isle Royale later in august 
    • You're bolting a mini fridge to a countertop but worried that a tie down strap will make it look trashy? OK then.
    • The strong rainfall of the last few weeks was compounded this week with more rain accompanied by high winds, thunder and lightning, as well as several tornado watches across the state. Downed trees and branches and flooding was reported at numerous state properties throughout south western and south central Wisconsin. State park crews were actively clearing roads and trails, and we're expected to have additional updates before the weekend. Anyone planning on visiting a property in these areas is urged to contact the property directly for the latest conditions.Water levels across the state are still elevated and this week's rains means sand bars will likely be in short supply again on the lower Wisconsin River. With the high fast moving water many kayakers and tubers are taking advantage of the situation. A group of kayakers on the Peshtigo River said with the fast water they shaved an hour off the time it normally would take them for a river trip.Wild weather has put a damper on fishing pressure across the state and there are isolated reports of partially submerged fishing piers. Anglers have reported some success for catfish on the St. Croix River and anglers have been having success fishing the Flambeau River for musky, walleye, northern pike and bass. Largemouth bass fishing has picked up with high waters in Dane County rivers and there were reports of an uptick in walleye and perch are coming in from Lake Winnebago. .
