The reason I have included the price with every piece of equipment is in case you like something you see and might want to go out and get it. The price in the parenthesis ($) is the regular price and the number after that is what I paid for it followed by where I purchased it. REI has some great sales throughout the year and Moosejaw has a special 15% off discount if you bank through MSUFCU. More to come...
