PLEASE NOTE:  We are away at the paddle show in Perth this weekend.  Stock in the shop will be incorrect until Monday, as we will be selling stuff there.  Please email us if you need anything urgently and we can keep it aside and ship on Monday, with one of our new beer mats – yeah!.

I must say we had an amazing time at the festival of paddle sport in Perth at the weekend promoting Alpacka Raft but we couldn't do that without bigging up the best and original bikepacking gear Revelate Designs loved chatting to folks and igniting their adventurous fires.

Edit forgot to mention Spey Valley Brewery who supplies our refreshments. (4 photos)
