    Default Heads up: discounted WM bags

    Hey folks, CampSaver.com is having a 30% off sale on 479 select gear items with the coupon code: TAKEITALL
    26 of those 479 items are Western Mountaineering sleeping bags, which are often excluded from such sales(and what makes it notable to me). In some cases there are just 1 or 2 left in different sizes...
    Lots of Osprey and Marmot stuff, too, even Hilleberg tents.

    Other categories, clothing, etc. are also on sale, but this is the gear link:

    About five years ago by my recollection and that was only because the company was getting rid of bags that had minor cosmetic defects.
    Colorless green ideas sleep furiously.

    Great tip! Thank You. I'm all stocked up on WM bags but I ended up buying Hilleberg Enan at a 30% discount! Thanks! :-)

    Seems reasonable. They have tons of WM and Hilleberg on there for sale. You can grab a brand new first quality Summerlite for $300, or a Keron 3 for about $766. Not bad at all.

    Limited to certain models/sizes in stock only.

    For instance, it applies to versalite short, does not to regular which must be backordered. Get a prohibited by mfg message.

    Possibly, if they quit carrying or stocking a mode they are allowed to put discount.

    Not applicable to a long Alpinlite or Terralite. And so the search continues....
    While searching for that unknown edge in life, never forget to look home. For the greatest edge you can find in life is to stand in the protective shadow of those who love you.

    Man, thanks for the heads-up! Been looking for a deal on a WM bag forever; just pulled the trigger on a Megalite!

    It took a lot of willpower to resist this one. I want one, but really dont NEED one... But one heck of a sale.

    Me either. But I planned to buy one in the future to replace my BA 15* (which is really a 30* for me). So I saved a future $140!

    Posted this for everyone else, and ended up getting new bag envy from the replies
    My summer quilt kinda sucks, and I'd already been wanting a replacement whose quality was on par with my Palisade, so...Everlite

    The good news is that WM bags can be easily sold for more than 70% of their "normal" cost. I've owned five WM bags over the last 20 years, down to two now, the ones I sold were moderately to heavily used, but still as good as new, and were sold easily when I had no further need for them. I think the least I got was for a 18 year old Puma, about 60% of what I paid for it, and I sold it to a friend for less than I could have gotten. The other two sold for about 75-80% of retail. So, buy away, and re-sell later if you don't actually need it!

    Thanks. I bought an Everlite.

    FYI: When I checked out at Campor's website, the coupon code would not go through due to a "Manufacturers Restriction." If this happens to you, call CampSaver (877-883-6276). They will have you complete the transaction. Then you give them the order number and they will manually adjust the receipt (and your credit card charge) and email it to you.

    A lot of people have an aversion to buying used sleeping bags. Cooties maybe? Seriously, some people just can't imagine buying something that someone else slept in. Maybe dead skin, sweat, and other bodily stuff? But realistically, nothing a down wash can't cure. I think many are also probably afraid of private online transactions as well, especially outside of the protection of ebay, etc. It's their loss. Many times used hiking gear is barely used. And even if it is, people tend to take really good care of expensive gear. While it's possible people might be willing to pay 75% or even 80% of retail for premium used gear, I'd say a more realistic used price is in the 50% to 70% range, and on the low side of that range for "short" length bags.
