Du Cane

rated 5 of 5 stars The Du Cane is the best pack I've ever used. The MD durogrid is waterproof and very hardy. It has one large compartment which is wider than the average pack. It is very easy to pack. There is no mission critical zippers waiting to destroy your trip and the BAR (Biomechanical Advantage Rucksack) Harness makes it feel like you're carrying nothing. It has a big waist strap which adds to this comfort. It has plenty of room for long expeditions and won't ever let you down. Full review

Alpine Fox

Nimbostratus Jacket

rated 4 of 5 stars Big hood for wearing over helmet with heaps of adjustability for normal use. Pit zips good for glacier air out, cool air in. Long articulated arms and long bum work well in stretchy situations. Good for mountaineering and fine for tramping but maybe not long enough at the front for hikers. Full review

Cumulus Jacket

rated 5 of 5 stars Great, no nonsense, bushwalking jacket. 3-ply Gore-Tex with internal map pocket. Made by well established Australian manufacturer Mountain Designs. Full review
