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.

    • 4"-6" sucker minnows are turning walleyes on a lot of lakes right now.  Seems to be an underutilized method lately.  
    • It would probably be more accurate for you to say you simply choose not to believe it will be a problem.   What happens to your theory if interest rates rise to 5%?  
    • All depends on the district and how many years you have been a teacher.  Although MN is looking for teacher all over.. Our current district decided on keeping befits really high and seeing an increase in pay. Where my mother in-law (down in the cities) they have great benefits but there wages haven't not increased as significantly..    Although my wife is looking to open a daycare up so we knows if she will be teaching after all? 
    • You'll be fine with the door in the V.  I heard at one point that the Lake of the Woods edition was Ice Castle's most popular layout.  I know I see tons of them, but you will have to take some precautions.  I use a Towtector on my truck, which keeps the majority of the slush down.  A piece of tape or a tennis ball over the door knob is also done frequently.  Other than that, you'll have icing and freezing of your door, regardless of where you put it.  Just the nature of the doors we use.       
    • That does happen a lot and it sucks having to play those games.  I took my contract job knowing I was going to keep looking for full time work so it was really just a stop gap to get pay checks coming in and also to gain some experience in a new area and with a different company.  I think i was there less than 2 months total including the 2 week notice I gave after accepting my full time job.  Often times its easier getting a job when you're already working somewhere as you are viewed as more employable.  If you're not working then employers start to wonder why. That where a short term contract job can pay off.
    • I'm lucky enough to have the choice when I start my day, usually head in before traffic gets bad(6:30), but today I woke up and was like..........I'll wait until after rush hour(let that carp melt). We have a guy that starts at 4:30 am, and others that roll in at 10:00 am.   35W-494-Hwy100 on the way in, but I avoid 494 like the plague in the afternoon and cut through Bloomington. Adds a few minutes time that way, but it's always the same amount of time,  I hate hate hate the accordion traffic of 494. Jump on 35W right before the MN river and I have my own lane, no merging needed.   Curious to see how shutting down Hwy 169 is gonna affect things. Might roll in even earlier if need be.   Started working from home on Friday's two weeks ago, it's nice but I don't know if I would ever enjoy working from home full time. Stir crazy and lack of interaction with other folks.   Living on the south side of the metro stinks for taking trips up north. But we live with fewer meth mullets around.   We picked where we wanted to live first and then adjusted how far we were willing to travel for a job.        
    • Ya a saw that, sounds like they have played an easy schedule but you still have to pretty good to have that kind of record.
    • One could also say Koivu has been reborn, that line has been on a tear lately. I think all of them are at or near a point per game for the last 22 games. Not to mention they are doing that while usually getting the job of shutting down the other teams top line. Crazyness!
    • most people are pretty good in the shanty towns that I frequent.  the thing that pisses me off is the guys that come out with there 50 grand fish house and there 5 dollar generator.  instead of leaving it in the back of the truck where it wont bother anyone they drag it 50ft front there house set it next to me and let it buck very annoying.
    • Maybe you can help me understand something.  He mentions his wife is a teacher.  From what I have been told and through reading doc's through the MN Dept of Education, teachers generally get paid the same.  I understand there is a little "bump" for working in the cities, but doesn't the State Teachers Union dictate what teachers make to some extent?  My daughter wants to get into teaching and I was just curious.  I highly doubt a English teacher in Shakopee makes $15,000 more than a teacher in Detroit Lakes when comparing degrees and experience.  Hopefully MJ can offer some insight as well. Thanks!
