Gear Test

Tested: Kathmandu Mono Tent v2

There are few things better than hiking solo – especially if it’s an overnight escape; packing a few essentials into your pack – food, water, stove, sleeping gear – is the true definition of simplicity. Of course, besides all this gear, you also need a shelter. Ideally, this shelter must be light in weight but still robust enough to withstand those often-wild spring/summer/autumn storms we can cop on the east coast of Australia. Finding that combo of lightweight and tough construction, however, isn’t always easy.

Tested: MSR Windburner

MSR’s new Windburner uses the same tech as the Reactor but in a more compact form, making it ideal for soloists and lightweight gear fanatics.
