TIP: The online Bushwalk Inventory System can help bushwalkers with a variety of bushwalk planning tasks, including: Manage which items they take bushwalking so that they do not forget anything they might need, plan meals for their walks, and automatically compile food/fuel shopping lists (lists of consumables) required to make and cook the meals for each walk. It is particularly useful for planning for groups who share food or other items, but is also useful for individual walkers.

"A locally-owned outdoors shop has bought a backpack business to ensure it remains Kiwi-owned.

I hope that Aarn keeps its design edge without Aarn Tate.

I love my Aarn packs!

Yes, sad in a way but I hope that the brand will live on.
I really think that many did not get the design, I love those packs.

May they go from strength to strength. And perhaps the new owners would be open to a couple of minor tweaks, such as an XS hipbelt (the small is still marginal on me) and S straps.
