I have a fantastic internal frame backpack, zero degree sleeping bag, and 2
regular sleeping bags thanks to the Marlboro offers. I use these for campouts -
which is why I ordered them! My son uses a military mummy bag for wintertime and
often uses one of the Marlboro regular bags in the summer.
I refuse to take the labels off my equipment unless everyone takes the labels off
of theirs. Do you also require the boys who got used military gear to dye it some
Do you allow boys to wear camo clothing?-- Our SM wears a military parka and I
often wear a military gortex jacket or the field jacket with liner!
You use what you have and what you can get without having to spend MAJOR $$$ for
the "name brand" equipment.
