Wilderness Equipment Nullaki - Bryn

A bomber participant pack

The 55L (size s/m) Wilderness Nullaki has been a favourite a hugely popular pack for us for some time. The Nullaki shares the same specs as its canvas cousin, the WE Nornalup, except it's made from 1000D Nylon with a PU coating. Far more forgiving for occasional use and long periods of storage than traditional canvas! The sizing is perfect for Duke of Edders, or hikers with a smaller frame. It's also more affordable than the Nornalup, meaning this mid-volume pack ticks all the boxes for commercial use.

Let us know if you'd like to add a low-cost trial pack to your fleet!

XTM Kakadu and Kimberly Jackets - Bryn

Great bang for your buck!

XTM Kakadu (and the ladies Kimberly) is a new addition to our line-up for 2018 and so far we are loving it. A tri-layer jacket with a massive 15 k waterproofing and 10k MVT breathability for sub $110; the Kakadu is perfect for participant/students programs or as an affordable staff jacket. Living in QLD, I've also found this jacket super handy to throw in my pack for hikes or longer trail runs because of it's high breathability.
