insulated sleeping mat.

2/ MONT MOONDANCE I
A one-person, three-season free-standing tent.
Australian designed, for Australian conditions; the Mont Moondance I is ultralight without compromising the integrity of the materials. A bombproof 25,000mm floor ensures you're protected in the wettest conditions, while the mesh inner provides plenty of ventilation to reduce condensation.
The Moondance series features an innovative wishbone hub pole design that gives more space inside the tent.
3/ MONT HELIUM 300
Ultralight two/three season down sleeping bag.
Impressively light, surprisingly compact and exceptionally warm, the Mont Helium 300 features 800+ loft goose down, ultralight 26gsm nylon outer fabric and Mont's award winning Radial Arc Baffle System. The ultimate summer bag for fast and light trips.
4/ DEUTER ACT LITE 50+10
Light but comfy bushwalking pack.
This is one of the lightest full harness packs that Bogong stocks. There are lighter packs on the market, but they have severely compromised harnesses that do not carry as well.
The 210 denier fabrics are light, but will go the distance and this pack is big enough to carry the load. Weight is just 1.69kg, and if you pack exceptionally light you could consider the 40-litre version at 1.68kg. Also available in a women’s 45-litre version.
5/ MSR POCKET ROCKET 2
The PocketRocket backpacking stove provides full cooking function in an incredibly efficient form.
Barely noticeable in your pack, it delivers impressively in camp. Precision flame control goes from torch to simmer. The PocketRocket stove's diminutive size is also the foundation of a solid emergency kit for home or trail. Simple Operation: No need for priming, pressurising, or maintenance. High Heat Output: Boils 1 litre of water in under 3.5 minutes.
