A walk in the Mountains. By Leann Geach, Mont Shop Manager

Over the Anzac weekend the family and I took a walk in the Snowy Mountains. The minus 8ºC overnight tested my Helium 600 sleeping bag, but adding Mont Flashpoint Pants and Zero Down Jacket over Power Dry Silk Weight Thermals I was cozy. The little alpine tarn near our tents froze over to about 2cm thick; starting to look and feel wintry!

Choosing a new tent is one of those moments that calls for serious research. It's a big decision, and a potentially risky one, if you get it wrong you may have to live with the consequences for a long time. I live in Tasmania and love exploring wilderness Alpine regions, especially winter camping.

So, my non-negotiables in a tent are it being waterproof, that's #1, then weight and space. Ok, looks play a part, but they are a bonus :)

An Explosion of Colour and Life. By Leann Geach

“We are so lucky to live in the bush capital. Getting out in nature is good for the soul and the mind. Especially when greeted with an explosion of colour and life around every corner.
