OK so a nice newbie & her daughter are going to the gnomie school of the great outdoors...

I have a ton of gear I'm giving them..

After they do the hikes they get the gear given to them..Im hooking up the stove, pot, miscl.clothing ...boots..fly fishing gear...

BUT we're in search of a 2 person or any decent SOLO  light wt. Tents..for a reasonable $

Heck even a 3lb 2 person in good shape..

Also perhaps a big agnes airpad?

Women's bags... (smaller sizes)...synthetIc ok..
I'm giving her 1 down bag..

& 1 pack... (I'll probably give 1 & loan1)

Boots? Size 6.5...about same for her teen daughter..I have one pair for momz...

Thanks all!

Ah, let me check my extra tents no one bought on Gear Trade a few years back.  Used for backpacking, the usual "2 person" but great for one and good for two friends.  (I'm in Kirkland.)  Also may have an extra Thermarest I no longer need since I now use a Exped Downmat.

Cool thanks I'll b in touch..I have a couple of single 3 or 3.5 lb.. tents..they can upgrade later..

But ya I'd be interested in a tent for them!

Hoping for a syl nyl.tent eventually...

She has some $ to get big agnes 22oz. Airmatresses...I also have extra thermal rests for em..

I have several boots that should fit...

So I think mostly tents...women's smallish backpacks for a decent price..

Cheap puffy jacket?..I can find at goodwill also

I did see a great synthetic bag at 2.5lb..by big agnes (sportsman's warehouse)..for 110$..
Super nice..

Campsite at no name lake. Ready for a stormy night.

I've got a MSR Nook small 2 person tent. Very light.  Selling due to knee replacement that crushed my backpacking days.
I also have a MSR Hubba solo.  Both of these in excellent condition.
Plus an Osprey Aura 50 women's small, beige. excellent shape.
Black Diamond Ergo trekking poles. 2 sets.

I was the lucky recipient of a free tent just a few weeks ago. I now have a Nemo Veda 1 in like new condition that Id be willing to pay forward - if your friends want it, Id settle for a small donation to search and rescue in return.

Okay, have a BA Copper Spur 1 (not HV model), used in good shape.  Also have a super-tight Expedition tent that is heavier, but bomb proof, plus two no longer used Thermarests.
