Random jacket and pack questions
Im new to this forum and starting off with questions already. Im not from Alaska but will be heading up there this fall. Is there a website I can find Barneys Pack's other that Barney's to order them from or does anyone on here have a used one that they are trying to get rid of? Im heading up there this fall to hunt and need something for carrying out a Moose..... hopefully. Im fresh out of the military and am in school, so to say the least... IM BROKE!!!!
Also, Im thinking of purchasing an Alaska Brooks range jacket from Barney's for a buddy of mine who guides for sheep in Alaska. Is it worth the money and will it hold up to the elements?
Thanks for your help.
24hourcampfire.com is also a great place for used gear. For internal frame packs, check out the Mystery Ranch series....
Very true, except it is usually broke AFTER not while shopping at Barney's. Too much good stuff in one little building.

Well worth every cent in my opinion!
