CONTENTS

WHAT’S NEW We’ve brought in some new features for this handbook to make it more exciting and easier to navigate such as QR codes and new icons.

When Paddy Pallin started this business in 1930, he didn’t have much – just a love of the outdoors and a thirst for his next great adventure.

QR CODES

Nobody knows more about trekking and adventure travel than the team at Paddy Pallin.

You may notice some funny-looking boxes throughout the Handbook like this one. They’re called Quick Response (QR) codes and they enable you to get more information about a particular product. Simply scan the code with your mobile phone using a QR reader application and you’re away!

Over his long life he enjoyed hundreds of these journeys with his family and his colleagues, and today that 80+ year tradition of shared experience is still the heartbeat of our business.

We don’t just talk the talk. We walk the walk. But that’s not all. We bash the boots, we punish the packs and we push the limits of every product we sell. Because it’s only through our experience that we can help make the most of your experience.

That’s a rock solid guarantee. Please refer to our online Refund and Exchange Policy or contact our helpful staff for advice.

When you visit a Paddy Pallin store, you’ll deal with staff that live and breathe the outdoors. Sure, they’re highly trained in their jobs but more importantly, they use our gear every day and for every adventure. That’s why they’re experts in giving you the right advice.

WORLD’S LEADING BRANDS Paddy Pallin is committed to bringing you the best products from the world’s leading brands. These include Scarpa, ExOfficio, Osprey, The North Face, Patagonia, Icebreaker, MSR, Nemo, Helly Hansen and Marmot to name a few.

PRICE PROMISE Paddy Pallin strives to bring you the best prices. However, if you find an identical product somewhere else at a lower price, let us know and we’ll happily match it (excluding internet prices). That’s our price promise and we’re sticking to it!

ENVIRONMENTAL HEARTBEAT At the heart of Paddy Pallin’s original philosophy was a strong commitment to the environment. That commitment goes from strength to strength through a number of initiatives such as our ‘Don’t bag the environment’ campaign (see page 39), the environmentally conscious refit of our Little Bourke St store and environmental grants provided by the Paddy Pallin Foundation.

ALEISHA & RICH Congratulations again to awesome Aussies Aleisha McCormack and her fiancé Richard Maddock who won a chance to model in this winter handbook and enjoy Banff National Park, Alberta, Canada. As you can see in the pages ahead, they did a stellar job and had a bit of fun along the way. Thankfully both come from bush and ski loving families and grew up in the Tasmanian wilderness, so they could handle a Paddy Pallin photoshoot. They braved -30ºC temperatures, predawn wake up calls, near whiteouts and endless takes and retakes. They pitched the tents, lit the stove and carried the heavy packs. It was a real experience, and thank you Aleisha and Rich for being a part of it.

Layering simply means wearing a number of light clothing layers rather than a couple of thick, bulky garments. Layering helps maximise warmth and insulation by trapping air between the layers, and gives you the flexibility to add or remove clothing to suit the temperature or activity.

PRINCIPLES OF LAYERING

BASE LAYER - Worn against your skin to keep you dry and comfortable by wicking sweat away. MID LAYER - The main role of mid layer clothing is to provide basic insulation and warmth in mild conditions. INSULATION LAYER - Typically worn when mid layer and/or base layer garments can’t quite do the job. OUTER LAYER - Your final barrier against wind, rain and snow. It also needs to be breathable to allow sweat and heat to escape from your body.

MAINTAINING YOUR SHELL JACKET

P

SCAN TO WATCH VIDEO

It is very important to clean your shell layers frequently to maintain performance and longevity, even if the garment does not appear soiled. Your natural body oils, sweat, grime and dirt can block the pores of the waterproof membrane, thus preventing the garment from breathing. MATT WEARS THE NORTH FACE ALPINE PROJECT GORE-TEX® JACKET, MARMOT MINIMALIST GORE-TEX® PACLITE® PANT AND CARRIES HIS SKIS ON THE OSPREY KARVE 16L DAYPACK.

Wet out occurs when water saturates your garment’s outer fabric layer above the GORE-TEX® membrane, as opposed to water beading and rolling off, leaving you feeling damp and clammy as if your garment were leaking, even when it’s not.

SUNSHINE VILLAGE, BANFF NATIONAL PARK, ALBERTA, CANADA.

Simply machine wash your garment, rinse it and put it in the tumble dryer, being sure to follow the manufacturer’s instructions on the care label. Washing will remove dirt and other contaminants and the heat from the dryer helps redistribute the DWR treatment on the fabric surface.

THE EFFECTIVENESS OF TREKKING POLES Do you love exploring the outdoors but suffer from sore knees at the end of a long trek?

C3 AIRSHOCK WALKING POLES

The answer may be a quality set of trekking poles.

Komperdell’s C3 Airshock has been described as ‘the ultimate walking pole’. The Airshock’s ultra light carbon construction cuts weight down to an absolute minimum and its anti-shock system offers customisable cushioning to ease any jarring in your joints. This pole comes in a men’s version that extends to 140cm and packs down to 71cm, and a women’s version that extends to a maximum of 125cm and packs down to 64cm.

As well as helping you to lengthen your stride and improve stability, studies have shown that trekking poles reduce pressure on your opposite leg by approximately 20%. (Dr. G. Neureuther, German Mountain Guide Association) Furthermore, trekking poles help reduce the body weight that’s carried through the legs by approximately 5kg every step on level ground and 8kg on an incline. That’s a significant reduction when you put it in the context of a long hike. Trekking poles are designed to suit the type of walking you’re doing, plus the type of terrain you’ll encounter. Some of the main styles include Rigid, Shock Absorbing and Cork, with many poles also boasting collapsible, foldable or telescopic features.

TIPS

PACKING YOUR BACKPACK

Backpacking around the world or trekking in the wilderness, how you pack your backpack can have a huge impact on your comfort levels. That’s because a poorly packed backpack can place unnecessary pressure and strain on your body. Specifically, the way you pack your sleeping bag and heavy items is critical. We recommend that you don’t strap your sleeping bag to the outside of your pack where it can be damaged or stolen. Place it at the bottom of your pack (a Sea to Summit compression sack adds extra waterproofing), where it provides a firm platform on which to load other clothing and equipment. The soft bulk of the bag also means it won’t dig into your hips. When it comes to heavier items such as stoves, fuel and food, they’re best placed towards the frame of the pack. This keeps the centre of gravity close to your back, resulting in improved stability and posture. SCAN TO WATCH VIDEO

TIPS

CARING FOR YOUR TENT

SCAN TO WATCH VIDEO

Protecting you from howling winds, driving rain and bitter cold, your tent deserves a little love and attention both at home and in the field to ensure it performs at its best year after year.

Before

After

Pitch your tent at home before you go to check that all of the components are present and in good working order. The zips may need particular attention if the tent has been packed away for a while or it got wet on your last trip. This is also the best time to seal any exposed seams.

Before you take down your tent, it’s important to remove as much moisture as possible with a chamois or micro-fibre towel such as the Sea to Summit Dry-Lite. When packing your tent into its stuff-sack, roll it or fold it differently each time to prevent deep creases forming, which can damage the coating. Back home, it’s a good idea to air your tent to dry any excess moisture and prevent mildew from forming.

During When choosing a spot to pitch your tent, look for high, well-draining ground that’s protected from the wind and away from overhanging trees or branches. It’s also important to clear away sticks and rocks that may damage the floor of your tent.

THE BASICS OF NAVIGATION

SCAN TO WATCH VIDEO

Whether you’re a weekend hiker or serious outdoor adventurer, the ability to read a map and use a compass is essential to ensuring the safety of you and your group. A good navigator is one who observes their surroundings, notes significant features like hills and creek junctions, knows how far they’ve travelled, and recognises important landmarks when they’re reached. These observations are then related to the map for location accuracy. A compass can be used as a simple tool for checking direction, however an expert can instruct you on its more technical capabilities.
