    You must mean the Trailstar nest. I doubt you would think that £23 for a Granite Gear Crown 2 is good money.

    I know, the feedback isn't great either but there is a photo of the tent in the packaging so could be genuine!

    I used one for a time and liked it.
    Also did an Alpine trip with the Amp Race 25 - a great pack.

    Why are there so many x-mids flying around at the moment? Many people ordered looking to profit of resales or what?

    Feels like it. Some may have pulled the trigger on multiple tents though and changed their mind.

    I'm a bit gutted because I missed out by minutes on the last xmid batch, and if not for these resales I might have managed to get one at price.

    It was a very well respected pack (as was the Lowe Alpine Zepton 50) i always wanted a Amp Race 40 in the red & black colours, like the one that was always pictured in Trail mags, Trail Routes years ago. Back then they were selling on ebay for around £80-£100. Fast forward to 2021 and there is now a massive choice of newer U/L packs.

    XM1 went for under £150 on a single bid. Maybe things are calming down.

    I would suggest it may have gone for more than £150.

    It was an auction set at £148 starting price, with the "make an offer" option enabled.


    This means that someone may well have made an offer higher than £148 in the realms of what the vendor would accept/expect the auction to run to. So the vendor ended the listing.

    I did similar last year. Started an auction for a Sleeping bag at £200. With the "make an offer" option enabled. Had an offer of £250 straightaway. Which , as I accepted it, stops the listing. eBay never displayed the final offer price. Just starting price.
