      ***3 This is the 'public' RRP; discounts are available to subscribers
      to BackpackingLight.

      Comment: I thought this was a no-no.




      ***The two companies (Bozeman Mountain Works and BackpackingLight)
      specialise in equipment for the ultra-light end of the market

      Edit: what does BackpackingLight have to do with the pullovers? They
      do not both make them that I could see from the web site. Just
      Bozeman.

      ***I should add that when the Cocoon stuff sack is pulled out of my
      pack in the evening it is usually more of a rectangular shape than a

      ***The Cocoons look very snazzy and we did consider wearing them out

        Ray,
        Is the comment directed at listing anything except the MSRP? If so (as
        you probably know) Backpacking Light almost always lists two prices:
        price to the general public and price to BPL members. It's more like
        two MSRPs than "discounts available;" the discount isn't negotuiable
        and isn't free as BPL charges an annual membership fee. I think the
        most accurate way to report would be along the lines of "MSRP: $ xx US
        for general public, $ yy US for BPL subscribers." I'm working on an OR
        for a BPL item so I have more than an academic interest in this.

          Hi Roger,

          It has nothing to do with BackpackingLight. It is supposed to be
          Bozeman's MSRP not the retailer. I see that they are carried by
          ProLight and BPL. So I guess that it does not really have an MSRP as
          the pricing is being set by the dealers not Bozeman. As such it
          should really be listed as N/A, right?

          That is why I could not ubderstand the reference to BPL also.

          That is my take on it anyway.

          My two cents worth: The MSRP is supposed to be the retail, not discounted price. It wouldn t be any different than if I found a product cheaper at WalMart

            My two cents worth:

            The MSRP is supposed to be the retail, not discounted price. It
            wouldn't be any different than if I found a product cheaper at
            WalMart than XYZ outfitters.

            That said, I will probably have a problem on my FireLite stove review
            too. Does Backpackinglight contract with FireLite on that or is that
            just a model name they have developed? It says it is exclusive. I
            also noted Coleen Porter had used them as the manufacturer in her
            review of the stove. Of course, there are also FireLite spoons
            available for sale many other places.

            I am confused.

            Pam
