VINTAGE 90s Granite Gear Rock Solid Compression Sack - Made IN USA Original RARE. Both Items Used Just 6 Nights. Please see my Sept 7 update note at the end of this listing. Bundled Item 1 of 2: Vintage'90s Marmot Goose Down Mummy Sleeps Bag.
I've properly stored my Marmot sleeping bag in a no-smoking home. I'm the original owner. I bought it in early'90s & used it. I showed it to a few gear people who commented, "Very clean", "Looks like-new".
I also pointed out the yellow staining on the sleeping bag & each person said it had no odor. It's just time to find it a new owner as I haven't used it in vintage years! Please review & enlarge all photos, as they are part of the description.
General : In almost new condition. Except for yellow staining odorless.
The staining is mainly on the frontside per attached photo. On the backside, you might also see a very small & hard-to-locate stain. It's so small, I often miss it, depending on the light. My good camera does not show it but I've included a photo of the small area where I've seen it. I never kept food or pets inside the tent.
Per care instructions , I carefully tried to manually remove staining on the frontside. After a little topical rinse, I applied a gentle, warm mild powered detergent directly to the staining. I gave the area a second topical rinse. No luck in removing the staining.From there, I chose not to machine wash the entire bag as the stain seems permanent. And given that the sleeping bag is very clean inside & out, it does not need an entire machine wash. I thought it better to preserve the bags original, like-new loftiness. Flaw Is Cosmetic : The staining is cosmetic because it does not affect the function of the sleeping bag & has no odor. Other than the Odorless Staining, it's in Like-New Condition. Never stored stuffed or wet. Never in the compression stuff sack for more than 1 to 1.5 days. Always aired after each use.
Two loops at bottom of the bag for hanging to air out. Note: As with any nylon fabric near a zipper, always zip carefully to prevent the nylon from getting caught in zipper. Large Label with Contents & Care Instructions (Front & Back).Shell & Lining: 100% Nylon. RN 79448 & CA 02986. DO NOT Store Stuffed Or Wet.

Vintage hard to find, especially in excellent condition. Bought it in early'90s. I fit my Vintage'90s Marmot Goose Down Mummy Style Swift Model in this same compression sack listed here. The Marmot sleeping bag is 6 ft.In length & 30 in width. Probably would not fit a heavy-duty winter sleeping bag. If you appreciate outdoor gear history, you may already know that Granite Gear LLC, founded in 1986, created & introduced the 1st generation Rock Solid Compression Stuff Sack. I remember discovering it in the early'90s at a Chicago gear store.
