gear reviews

 

mont austral jacket review

mont-Austral-jacket--

"Hi Guys, just got back from Tassie. Thanks for recommending the Mont jackets for Wendy and me. We used the jackets regularly over two weeks in Tasmania, but the highlight was when my son and I (he borrowed Wendy’s jacket) did a seven-hour daywalk from Lake St Clair to the summit of Mt Rufus and back. We experienced rain, hail, snow and gale-force winds during those seven hours and remained warm and dry. Had we used the jackets that were recommended and sold to us by [name of retailer deleted] on our last visit to Tasmania, we would not have completed the walk, as those jackets soaked through after 10 minutes in moderate rain. They somewhat diminished the enjoyment of our last trip. We now use them for dry weather only. We were very happy with the service, the advice and the jackets from The Wilderness Shop."
—Doug (Wilderness Shop customer)
