This Columbia pants is really made tough

I finally found one of my favorite pants. It is a Columbia brand denim pants which I got from a recycle clothing store down in Perth some years ago. I remembered having a ball buying all these outdoor brand names through recycle clothing stores in Perth back down.

This is a vintage The North Face (TNF) brand brief case I have kept and almost forgotten completely. My mom brought it to me recently when she found it wrapped in a plastic bag along with some odl bedsheets etc. I have no clue how it got there.

Well, I bought it from a market in Thailand many years ago during a vacation. I remembered it to be quite expensive and at the time, I just had to spend the money to buy the briefcase as it was at the height of my TNF craze. Why do I say its a vintage? Its damn old and it is made in the US. These days, Made in USA TNF products are really hard to come by.

Have a look at the pics below and you will know what I mean.

This pre-loved Helly Hansen wind breaker jacket is also for sale. I remember buying this jacket during one of my road trips to Terrengganu on the way to Lake Kenyir. Helly Hansen if not mistaken is a sailing product range but has adopted to many other outdoor products as well. I purchased this particular jacket because the condition is still very good and the brand is still relatively new.

I am offering this Helly Hansen jacket at the price of RM25. Add RM5 for shipping (poslaju) to anywhere in Peninsula Malaysia.

This jacket is a size L and is just a single layer. All teh zippers are in good working condition without rips or tears.

The Columbia Omnitech jacket from bundle

The Columbia Omnitech jacket from bundle

I think it is time that I sell off some of my baju bundle ‘outdoor clothing’ that I have accumulated over the years. They have not seen any actions for some time and with new plans in the family happening, its best to start clearing some of my bundle collection.

Here is a Columbia jacket I have up for anyone who is interested to buy it. The jacket is of the Omnitech range of material. Omnitech is supposed to be Columbia’s version of breathable synthetic material. This jacket is obviously waterproof. All the stitched areas are taped from the inside.

With all honestly, I can’t remember where I got this jacket. In any case, it is still in very good condition, no tears or rips. All the zippers seems to be working find. This jacket however, is missing the inside layer. It is supposed to have that inner ‘layer’, normally a piece of fleece jacket to give that extra warmth. But rarely can one find a complete piece (both the shell and the inner piece) from bundle.

My opening price? RM60, add another RM5 for shipping anywhere within peninsula Malaysia.
The size of this Columbia Omnitech jacket by the way is a Men’s ‘S’

A red, used but good condition winter jacket by The North Face

A red, used but good condition winter jacket by The North Face

This is a The North Face (TNF) down jacket from a bundle store I got some time back. If I remember correctly, it was from a shop somewhere in Kuantan. It was just a drop by along the way to Cherating if not mistaken.

An old pack by The North Pace

An old pack by The North Pace

This is a The North Face (TNF) ‘Way Out of Bounds’ pack I got from a shop selling used items (kedai bundle) in KL recently. This is an old pack. Perhaps in the 1990s. I could not find any links to any sites except for a gear review site that talks about the pack but unfortunately without any pictures.

I found this Nike ACG of what looks like a cycling shirt/ jersey in a used clothing store in Segamat recently. The store is big and I found many interesting things there. I guess this is a cycling shirt because of the few pouches on the back of the short. The material is synthetic and it has a zippered chest collar. For RM15, this shirt is a bargain I would say. The size, I reckon is a L.

Unfortunately, the shop owner tagged the price bar on the shirt label. My mistake was that I wasn’t paying attention to him when he was packing the shirts into the bag. He tore not the price tag but the shirt’s tag by ripping the plastic hook (used to tag the price tag). I manage to save a couple of pieces but the few pieces were already torn. Thanks Mr Shop Keeper!

Nice shirt really. Unfortunately I don’t cycle and the idea of walking around with pouches behind my back isn’t all that appealing to me. So, this piece I will sell to whoever is interested. AND…I found another same piece but long sleeve in the same shop as well. That’s coming next.

My Mountain Hardware jacket

My Mountain Hardware jacket

Ho…ho…a Mountain Hardwear jacket. Got it from a ‘kedai bundle’ in recently. Man, I am beginning to like that shop very much. There’s so many good stuff there and I always manage to find something interesting on each visit.

Not easy to find an American brand daypack in bundle shops

Not easy to find an American brand daypack in bundle shops

This is an adventure daypack I found at a bundle shop in Klang, Malaysia. It’s an Osprey! This is certainly not the normal stuff one would find at a bundle shop. Somehow I have a feeling it is not from bundle (‘pecah bundle’). It is very rare to be able to find such packs in bales. I have a feeling that the shop owner got this pack, probably from one of the whole sellers. It is not uncommon that bundle dealers these days hand pick their items from wholesalers and then resell them in their stores.
