Former Kathmandu Best In Field Gear-Tester & 3IC


Kathmandu Best In Field
Inspire the adventure. Embrace the journey. Live the dream™

I am extremely proud to have been a Kathmandu Best in Field gear-tester. 

My responsibilities as a gear-tester included putting a select range of apparel to the test in the harsh high-altitude environment of the world’s great mountains, including the Himalayas, Africa, Peru, and wherever my guiding adventures take me.

About Kathmandu’s Best In Field Team
Kathmandu’s Best in Field gear-testers are a team of extremely skilled alpinists, Search and Rescue team members, guides, mountaineers, adventure travellers, and multi-sport athletes based in Australia and New Zealand.

Kathmandu hand-pick them not only because they’re highly qualified, but because they use and test the Kathmandu gear in the environment the gear was intended for. Kathmandu Best in Field team are real people having real adventures, giving feedback on real products. They all “Live the Dream”.

And now…

I was certainly  ‘Living My Dream’ with Kathmandu as a Best In Field gear-tester and thoroughly enjoyed the experience!

Thank you Kathmandu, I am truly grateful for the opportunity.

Don’t just dream adventure, live it today!
