    Default Great news for WM Bags

    I have not been very active on this site for a while, due to my wife's breast cancer and her following death! I started the thread of "What's the weight of your Big Four" years ago.

    I am back into backpacking and have gained 25 lbs and no longer fit into my Ultralite WM bag...so I have been shopping for a Alpinlite WM bag and purchased one today!!!

    As you know WM (Western Mountaineering Bags) almost never go on sale, but today, I found a dealer in Atlanta, GA that is currently giving a 25% discount on the product line for the next 3 days which is unbelievable...so if you want this discount, I highly recommend you contact them ASAP.

    The Outfitter is The Gear Revival LLC, at 955 Marietta Street, Atlanta, GA 30318. They are open until 7pm EST and the phone # is 404-892-4326.

    The owner is Mitch Davis and the e-mail is www.thegrearrevival.com.
    Shipping is free for the lower 48 states and for GA residents only, there is a 8% sales tax.

    Good Luck and I hope you are as "Happy" as Me!!!!

    Happy

    My condolences for your loss
    The trail was here before we arrived, and it will still be here when we are gone...enjoy it now, and preserve it for others that come after us

    Happy, I'm sorry for your loss. My wife is a 14 year breast cancer survivor whose chances didn't look good in the early days after detection. We were fortunate, blessed even. Again, I am truly sorry. Also, welcome back. (and thanks for the tip).

    Yes, they are almost the same as far as size, but the Ultralite uses lighter and some say less durable material to have the weight savings. Watch your bag and no problems...or I would not have bought the Alpinlite!!!

    I will keep it, as my daughters go hiking with me from time to time, and they do not have my extra 25 pounds that I hope to hike off this season!

    I bought one of the MegaLite bags this morning from The Gear Revival. Yeah, they are new bags and the store is an official Western Mountaineering retailer.

    Since I am sure NOT to start the AT in March or April of this year, I am selling a new Western Mountaineering Badger 15*F 6' right zip bag in the gear selling section of this board.

    At my age, 69 yrs, most people tell me I'm nuts to even go hike the AT at all. Should join a managed care facility and watch TV ?? There are a few who are envious and supportive.

    I bought my WM vest from the Gear Revival a year or two ago. If you're in the ATL area it's worth a look. They carry other outdoor stuff too.

    Most of their outdoor gears/clothes are brand new correct?

    Thanks

    No, it's a mixed bag. But the above-referenced bags on sale now are new.

    thanks Hoop. So is it best to call them up and ask if the clothes I am interested in purchasing are brand new or used.

    Thanks again.

    They started out a few years ago as a used gear shop and got rave reviews on this site from Atlanta area backpackers...the owner worked for a large Atlanta area outfitter before that, and sold WM bags. He is blocks away from GA TECH.

    He relocated down the street and is a reliable retailer and WM authorized dealer, but retains a used gear room for other bargins which got him his start.
    With his background he became a WM authorized dealer.

    So it appears to me he is 75% retail and 25% used gear.
