Join us as our event series start up again!

Gideon Geerling is coming to the shop teach us how to understand New Zealand weather, equipment choice & concepts of how to self rescue in the NZ back Country.

This night is perfect for trampers, fast packers and anyone who travels back-country to areas (even day trips) where a rescue mission is not just a phone call away.

The evening will be a great overview of many things we hope you never need to do or use!
