Troop 137, This is Nick Plante - Assistant Scoutmaster.  I would like to make you aware of Hiker Direct ( Hiker Direct is a program that provides discount camping and backpacking gear such as tents, sleeping bags, backpacks etc, to members of various scouting organizations in the United States. The equipment is from Alps Mountaineering and is high quality, and you also have access to a few other brands that the company owns such as 'Browning' brand, and a few others.  The founder of this company is an ex-executive at Kelty and started his own outdoor gear company.  I purchased two backpacking backpacks this winter and both of them looked to be of great quality, and I could not beat the prices, even at discount outdoor sites like Sierra Trading Post.  Go to to register and they will give you access to the discount pricing (40% or more).
