How much can you fit in 60 litres? If you pack light, it might be the only pack you ever need! For the rest of us, the new Mont Tanami is the ideal size for 2–4 day hikes, adventure trekking or loading up with climbing gear.

Made from hardwearing Australian canvas and featuring a really decent harness, the Tanami weighs in at 2.74kg. Perfect for those long weekend bushwalks!

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.
