Julbo: A necessity in Andrew Tuckey’s running kit

I discovered Julbo sunglasses when I was in France for the UTMB race. 
Since then they’ve become a standard part of my running kit because of their weight, comfort and performance in varying conditions.

The main reason I choose Julbo’s are the excellent photochromic lenses which work well when running on trails. The ability for the lenses to adapt quickly to the changing lighting conditions is important, especially when running through forested areas where the lighting 
conditions vary so much.

Secondly, the Julbo anti-fog lenses stay clear even when working hard in trying conditions. A lot of sunglasses claim to be anti-fog but in my experience these are the only sunglasses that live up to it. 

I’ll be using the Ultra and Trail models in my upcoming trail races including the North Face 100, Western States and UTMB later in the year.

Walls of Jerusalem National Park: New tracks, new sights

April 03, 2020

I have visited the Walls of Jerusalem dozens of times over the years but for some reason I had never walked the Junction Lake track. So it was time to do a little exploring. I climbed the usual track up past Trapper’s Hut, disturbing a beautiful, sleek black Tiger snake on the way. It wasn’t long before the Junction Lake track branched off and new country was ahead. It was a fast, easy walk down to Lake Adelaide, followed by a somewhat slower twist/turn down to a really attractive campsite at Lake Meston.

Our upside down times... By Geoff Murray

In these times of uncertainty and turmoil, the Wilderness still sits in the background. Quiet, boisterous, peaceful, serene, feisty and magnificent. It’s many moods continue. It doesn’t know about a virus, or the stock market, or any of our other problems (apart from Climate Change). It is still a fabulous place to escape to and just be there.

With advice to put some distance between yourself and others, we think now is the time for some social distancing adventure. Where better to put some distance in place than any number of the wilderness areas around Canberra? With that in mind, the Mont Shop Fyshwick will be open normal business hours if you need gear for your social distancing adventure.
