First off, the High Route Tent is back in stock, as of Friday. If we sell through this inventory, we have a bigger batch arriving in early-April.
Next, Sierra Designs is clearing out their inventory in advance of new arrivals. The High Route Tent and Flex Capacitor 40-60 Pack are among the few items that are not on the sale list, which otherwise includes most tents, sleeping bags, and men’s and women’s apparel.
If I were doing personal shopping, here are the items I would most consider:
Elite DriDown Hoody, now $124 (XL and XXL only). An ideal 3-season jacket for the Mountain West, or cooler season in the East.
Elite DriDown Parka, now $175. For winter trips in cold temperatures, and fall hunting trips when you’re not generating much body heat.
S/S Pack Polo, now $34. The long-sleeve version is my go-to for milder temperatures in the West (read my long-term review). The short-sleeve is more suitable for the East, or for those who are willing to regularly apply sunscreen. The same selling points apply: unmatched air permeability, quick dry, good looks. The treated polyester has proven more stink-resistant than conventional polyester, but it’s not as good as wool.
Mobile Mummy 30-deg 800, now $210. For most of my trips I use a quilt, except when temperatures will be regularly below freezing — at that point, quilts are simply too drafty to be comfortable. So I have a mummy in my closet for these colder temperatures. This Mobile Mummy has a lot of things going for it — just $210 and 1 lb 11 oz, and many features that make it more versatile than a conventional mummy, e.g. front zip, arm ports, and a jacket-style hood.
