  • Out and about testing the Osprey Aether and Aeriel. What an incredibly comfortable pair of packs. Amazing support and harness technology make them ideal for heavy loads and longer adventures. | photo credit: @richardmcgibbon
  • When it comes to head protection, never ever go cheap. It's the most important piece of protection. POC do some incredible helmets and they certainly saved my bacon yesterday. 7 fractured ribs and a punctured lung, but look at what could of been. #mtbcrash #dontbuycheap
  • We're pretty excited about the @explorelander dimmer lights. Perfect for camping. 👍
  • The new range from @rocday are jaw droppingly good 😜
  • Get into the party season with HandUp gloves. 🎉
  • It's hump day and we're already thinking about the weekend. Where are you heading?
  • On extended hikes, choosing a pack that works for you can make a huge difference to the whole experience. We love this shot of our friend who knows her pack intimately. Every piece of equipment  has been carefully chosen and packed.
  • At only 1.8 ounces, the Vertex stove is as simple and lightweight as it gets.
  • If you're looking for a more natural fitting hiking, trail or road running shoe, then check out the range from @altrarunning. We did and have never looked back.
  • We just love the feeling of merino wear next to our skin. It's incredibly soft and very comfortable even on extended hikes or rides. It has amazing heat regulating properties to keep you cool or warm. The best part, it's all natural!  #merinowool
  • The quality construction of the @hentydesigns packs have blown us away. We'd be hard pressed to find this level of quality anywhere else. And guess what? It was all started by a couple of guys who used to ride their BMX bikes around Hobart as childhood mates. See! There's lots of good reasons to ride bikes. 👍
  • We are getting very excited about the new Spartan Sport range from Suunto. It may just be the ultimate adventure watch? #adventureisoutthere #gpswatch
