Meet The Team

Name: Rune

Role: Store Manager


With a passion for nature photography, Rune can often be found exploring his local area around the ACT and South Eastern NSW. Having spent the last 20+ years helping fellow adventurers who swing by the Canberra store, Rune still loves to share his local hidden gems to discover in the area. Always packing his trusty Gore-Tex jacket and a nice spicy curry for those cold winter nights, Rune understands the need to have the right gear when out in the bush.

Name: Tyla

Role: Sales Assistant


Tyla is all about bikes. Mainly, her 20+ year old steel touring bike that she likes to pack heavy and take on long trips. She’s done a lot of bike touring around NSW, ACT, VIC and TAS over the years, but Tassie definitely holds a special place in her heart. Tyla loves helping people experience life outdoors in whatever capacity excites them, and thinks it’s pretty cool that she can go to work and chat about exciting trips with interesting people. 

Name: Xavier

Role: Sales Assistant


Xavier loves any outdoor adventure involving water. Whether it is canyoning, kayaking or packrafting, as long as he is wet and borderline hypothermic, he is having a great time. He has packrafted many rivers in Australia including the Murrumbidgee, Snowy, Franklin River and many other fantastic local rivers. Xavier has also completed month-long mountaineering and packrafting trips in Patagonia, Alaska and New Zealand. So if you're heading out for a week or more, Xavier is more than happy to offer his tips and pointers. He has made nearly every mistake in the book so you don't have to.
