I bought carbon poles from Costco a couple of years ago. Took 'em back after everything but the handle in my hand came off in sticky mud near Humes Ranch in the Olympics.

They are currently selling a two pack of Coast headlamps for $23 with batteries. 405 lumens max a bit bright IMO but drop down to 230 or 53 for longer battery life 17hr on low. They also have an focusing beam and red LEDs. Good for loaning or a backup.

Was there yesterday (3/9/17) and they had rain jackets that looked a lot like the Marmot Precip, except that the material was stretchy polyester, was described as "breathable", and the price was only $25.

Total waste of money. There is a reason this is not available in Costco warehouses because then you could see what you were getting. Costco often comes through with some good deals, but this is beyond laughable. After removing the throws from their packaging (they were rolled up) I shook them out and was stunned to discover that the loft is all of 1/4". Honestly! This is a ridiculous rip-off. I'll be dropping mine off at the nearest Costco warehouse for a refund.

I love my Costco down throws.  They fluff up after a few days.  Shake them now and then.  Give them a chance.

Really? Perhaps I spoke to soon. I'll give them a couple days...

I bought mine at the Wenatchee warehouse last year.  They were sold singly at $20 each.  I have one on my couch, one in the car, and one at my daughter's house that I use as a top blanket when the regular blanket isn't warm enough.  Granted, they're not rated to 20 degrees, but they don't claim to be, either.

We got a couple at the warehouse also they work great. Of course they are not Western Mountaineering -40 degree certified but for $20 they are pretty sweet.
