Late last year, Sia came to the rescue of a pair of hikers on the Staircase Spur Trail to and from Mount Bogong. She came prepared for all conditions and was able to revitalise the two adventurers with "warm dry clothes, food, hot water, a sleeping bag, and a magnitude of wisdom and kindness".

I’ve been trialling the new RAB Veil 6L Trail Running Vest over the past few months, and I have to say I am very impressed with it. Small enough to feel like an item of clothing rather than a backpack, but big enough to get you through most mandatory gear lists, or big days out in the mountains.
