This pack is tough!! I took it on a walk over the hazards on the Freycinet Peninsula and it held up beautifully. The rock was like sandpaper, any lesser bag would have been ripped to shreds from the constant dragging. Full review
The Fairydown Escape is an awesome tent. I bought it just when Fairydown was going bust. It has been up to the mountains in the snow and was great for summer camping. Truly versatile. Must for everyone. Full review
I have bought a number of fleeces over the years. The problem is that they are too warm when you are moving and they have no wind protection. I am now happy. This is light fleece jacket, that is warm yet light and is windproof. It has a good deal of water resistence but should not be used for a waterproof layer. Overall a little pricy, but from the snow I have been in so far well worth it. Full review
