After leaving such a scathing post re. my dissatisfaction with the Costco throws, I was admonished by others to give them time to loft and the re-evaluate. I waited several days and also ran then through a 30 min low heat cycle on the dryer. As a result...

(sigh) I am now forced by my own conscience to lower my contrite head and issue an online apology to Costco for my hasty and ill-considered post. They are indeed the good deal that others have claimed. Somehow my expectations were for much more loft. Those were unreasonable expectations for a $20 throw. They are very lightweight, fairly warm, and come with great stuff sacks. I'm very happy and will be using mine in my camper.  frown.gif  redface.gif  smile.gif

If you have Costco poles you may have noticed that the tips do not last very well. I had a pair lose the metal tips on Sierra granite. In Bishop I found that Black Diamond points fit them well and cost only$10 a pair. As a bonus the carbide tips are replaceable and screw in. REI does not sell the tips or points here but they are available online.

I was at the Costco in Woodinville yesterday, and there was a rep for Klymit selling pads and sleeping bags on sale. I picked up a 23" x 72" x 2.5" insulated "Static V" pad for $50. I was hemming and hawwing about buying yet another pad, but I've read great reports on these pads, plus the rep assured me that the Costco warranty still applies, so if I have buyers-remorse, I can return it for a refund. Now that I see there is a lighter weight "V2" model, I may do just that!
