I unearthed these while having a clearout, and I can't see myself using them. They may be of use to someone though, so I'm open to offers...
1.) Polycro ground sheets from Gossamer Gear
I bought these direct from GG a few years ago, but then moved on to using spinnaker footprints instead. There are three 2-packs of Small (32" x 96"), so 6 in total. And one 2-pack of Medium (40" x 96"). All unused, never unfolded.
A Medium 2-pack currently appears to be $9.95 on the GG website. They don't seem to do Small any longer.
They shouldn't cost much to post, and I'm happy to split the packs if required.
2.) Terra Nova Easton tent poles
The top set come from a 1985 Quasar, and the lower set from a 1996 Voyager. I ditched the tents a couple of years ago but hung on to the poles. All in good condition apart from one bent ferule on a Voyager pole section - see photo (it didn't affect me using it for 10 years).
I couldn't guarantee that these fit current models of those tents - I expect the designs have changed - but I'm happy to measure them if required. I thought maybe they'd be useful to someone looking for spares or to use for MYOG projects. For convenience I'd rather shift these as full sets but I'll look at splitting them if full sets don't attract any interest.
The length means these would have to ship by courier (so £3 for basic My Hermes) unless you're in the Chester / Wrexham area to collect.
PS. A blast from the past - I've also found an unused pair of "Dry Walkers" (some of you might remember them - the idea was a kind of portable, boot-covering, knee-length plastic bag "wader" for river crossings on backpacking trips). I can't imagine many backpackers choosing to carry them these days, but you never know...
I have an older Laser Comp and an Akto. Overall the Akto is a noticeably bulkier package. But its poles have a shorter packed length which can make it easier to pack (especially in cycle panniers rather than a rucksack).
Then again, it;s the non-splitting end poles of the LC that give it a long and slightly awkward packed shape, but it's no real problem to remove them and carry them separately - then the LC really wins easily on packed size.
