Polartec Power Stretch Vs Power Stretch Pro

Many outdoor clothing brands make garments with Polartec Power Stretch fabric. But few of these brands let you know about Power Stretch’s smarter, tougher and more resilient sibling by the name of Polartec Power Stretch Pro.

Yes, both fabrics have a super soft lining, both have four-way-stretch, both have DWR and anti-odour treatment, and both have excellent moisture wicking capabilities. But only one has a Nylon face finish. So what?

So more durability, higher resistance to pilling, better stretch and stretch recovery, and higher wind resistance. So there!

Power Stretch Pro fabric is the perfect baselayer for high intensity activities in cold weather: from skiing and mountain biking to bushwalking, climbing and mountaineering.

You will get better performance, longer lifespan, greater comfort and significantly more value for money.

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.

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.
