The New Mont Epoch:
Redesigned and Available Now

Mont Epoch

With a significant update, this generous two-person tent is hands-down the best winter tent on the Australian market for its price.

Ideally suited for use above the snow line and at high altitude, the redesigned Epoch is incredibly stable in high winds. That's thanks to its five-pole design, plus its ability to be double-poled.

Equipped with a blizzard-grade full nylon interior, this is a true four-season tent.

Check out more of the new Epoch's features at its product page, here.

About Us

Bogong Equipment was founded in 1989. Everyone who works at Bogong Equipment is a climber, hiker, mountaineer or runner. We have first-hand experience in cragging, multiday bushwalking, alpine climbing and trail running. We use the gear we sell. That means, we can tell you how a product truly performs in the field. That's how we only select the best gear to stock our shelves.

Our stock room in our brick-and-mortar store on Little Bourke Street, in Melbourne, is filled with purpose-designed, technical equipment. With our vast selection of gear, it can be tricky to know where to begin. Especially if you don't know exactly what you're looking for. That's why we employ knowledgeable, experienced staff. We can help you get equipped for your remote trekking expedition, your ice-cap crossing, climbing your first peak or simply your next wander in the hills.
