Welcome to the Mountain Journeys store. This is a curated collection of products, chosen by us, based on what we consider to be the best clothing and equipment for New Zealand conditions. This is the stuff we use ourselves on multi-day transalpine trips. You won’t find big discounts here; instead you’ll find reliable gear that lasts a long time, and personalised advice. If we think you’ve already got something that works, we’ll tell you!

A lot of brands make gear that works. But there are two other points worth considering: how long will it last, and what are the manufacturer’s values? Mountain Journeys will only stock products that we think will handle years of abuse, and only from manufacturers who value sustainability, consistency, and care for their community. Earth Sea Sky is a Christchurch, NZ based clothing manufacturer run by the Ellis family. They exemplify these values, and we are proud to stock their products.

We currently don’t stock products from Cactus Outdoor or Hilleberg the Tentmaker, but we believe those brands also align with our values. Cactus makes really tough gear that lasts forever, and they produce it at our home in NZ. Hilleberg is a Swedish company whose tents are simply the best in the world, with exceptional care and attention to detail put into their design and construction. They take great care of their staff and their customers.

We’d also like to give a shout out to two other Christchurch based independent stores, Further Faster and Aspiring Safety. If you can’t find what you want with us, visit one of their stores or websites and they’ll help to sort you out.
