Hello, I am the manager of the new Montbell shop that has opened on Kent St in Sydney. Montbell is a Japanese brand that focuses on lightweight hiking gear.

I would like to let everyone know that we are now up and running although our website still has some ongoing issues. https://www.montbelloutdoor.com.au/ I am only too happy to process sales over the phone! (02) 9264 9376

I am trying to populate our mailing list. This mailing list will be used to inform interested people about valuable discounts. We will not spam you with emails that have no value. To set the tone, we are offering 25% off to anyone who mentions this post and signs up to our mailing list.

Thank you very much.

Hi James,

We visited Montbell while in Japan two years ago, and although we liked the stuff we didn't really buy a lot because the sizes were more appropriate for Japanese men. I hope designs for your Aussie store are suitable for those with wider shoulders?

Might drop in next week when I'm in Sydney!

Cheers, Geevesy.

I bought one of the Wickron Long sleeve shirts for a trip to NZ a few weeks ago from the Kent St store. Great travel shirt

Great. Look forward to seeing more of your products listed. Be sure to add item weights and photos of the gear from multiple angles to the website.

New rain gear ordered for the big kidlet. We have bought this set before and it's a nice piece of gear if anyone needs decent rain gear for kids :)
Nice to have an Aussie supplier!

I've got a lot of mont bell gear, really great gear, highly regarded by ultralight thru hikers its not all ultralight but tends towards being on the lightweight side, but well built people might struggle for fit.

Hi James,

How come there's no jackets available? Particularly the lightweight down jackets e.g. Plasma 1000, Superior Down, EX Light.

I signed up but nothing on the website is anything like what I'd be shopping for.
No Alpine or ski gear or clothing yet
EDIT
Product descriptions are very thin with little technical information in them. I might be interested in a pair of powder boots but I need to know much more. What weight and thickness of insulation and the thermal rating of it in either Clo or R-value and whether thay are sized for naked feet or when wearing a couple of pairs of heavy Alpine socks. Is the liner removable [ as it should be] or fixed
They only go up to a 30 Mondo and for somebody with 29.5 feet that is very, very tight for an apre or high camp boot
I'm an XXL in Mont-Bell gloves [ I've worn ou several pairs over the decades] and there is nothing in an XXL
As already stated by others none of the good stuff yet
Ve are too soon old und too late schmart
