    There is this sweet website that I check every day that I have internet access called geartrade.com and they generally have super high end backpacking gear for really cheap, or sometimes still really expensive, but that's why you have to check daily because shit goes fast. I bought a $450 Gregory Denali Pro expedition pack for $50 plus free shipping. They asked $90 and I offered $50 and there is nothing physically wrong with it and my back feels amazing. Didn't realize how huge it was gonna be, but it's all working out.

    For sure! The way to find the best deals is to check often because the best ones are only up for a couple hours before they get snagged and new stuff is posted everyday. Definitely a nice way to get nice sleeping bags, packs, tents, etc.
