In the 1970's, Wilderness Equipment started making gear with fantastic testing conditions—they used it themselves and found out immediately if it didn't work right! Then they would go back to the drawing board and the sewing machine and fix it until it did. This rigorous adherence to quality and good design has been their mainstay and is one of the hallmarks of their brand. Passionate and dedicate outdoorspeople that they are, anything that they turn out—be it tent or backpack—is made to the exact specifications of someone who demands the same performance—or higher—from their equipment that you do. The exceptional quality of Wilderness Equipment makes them an Australian owned company with one of the lowest warranty or return rates in the country.
