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 :)
