Quality kit for sale

As usual big expedition are not good for your bank account. And to avoid personal bankruptcy I’m selling some kit I’m not using enough to justify owning it. Most of it is winter kit but as you know, the winter is right around the corner and now is a good time to stock for the colder season.

I can send items to anywhere in Europe but buyer pays the shipping (unless you buy in bulk, then we can negotiate). Payment preferably by bank transfer but Paypal works also. Questions and reservations via comments or e-mail to jaakko_heikka@hotmail.com.

Photos of each item can be found from my gallery.
