Update: 2/11/2021 a good home has been found. Thank you Rob!
Passing along this offer from Rob Rosenthal, a former ADK member. Rob reached out with a generous offer of two winter sleeping bags to our group. If you’re interested, please contact Marty McDonald using the Contact Us button on our website. I’ll pass Rob’s info to you.
I’m a lapsed ADK member and graduate of ADK’s winter school (1988). I have two EMS PolarGuard winter sleeping bags that I realize I will probably not be using in the future as my winter camping days are 10 years behind me. I would like to give them to an ADK member since I know they’ll be used and not end of in the waste stream.One is in good condition and has a compression sack. The other one, which is the same EMS model, is in fair shape only because it wasn’t stored properly and was left in its stuff sack, which slightly compressed its loft. The second one only has a conventional stuff sack. The bags are rated for -5 degrees, but I’ve used in in colder temperatures with a VB liner, which warms them to about -15 or -20. I’ll throw the VB liner into the offer too, but I only have one.
Anyone interested can contact me at my email. My only caveat is that they have to pick them up at my apartment building lobby on the Upper East Side. But, hey, it’s otherwise free.
