I recently got my pack off ebay... Snipped the bid in the last 7 seconds.

I think I did rather good, this pack fits beautifuly.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewI...item=8820694847



It was only $12 shipping to my house, two of the buckles were broken, so I called up marmot, yadda yadda yadda... I'm getting all new buckles free of charge in the mail, all will be here next week. So I will have plenty of spare parts, for just that occassion.


Pack had no rips, tears,stains, or smells, LOL, and all the zips work, and what not. I think I will be having a great trip afterall. I'm going on a week long camping / hiking trip in the hills of Texas in july to Leaky Texas, so I'm going to give it a run before I head to europe for christmas.


How do you guys rate my buy? Just curious. Peace people, Trek On!

Marmot makes great, if expensive, gear. I'm not sure but I think that particular one is discontinued, but that doesn't mean it's not an awesome pack. Just make sure it fits you well.
