TIP: The online Bushwalk Inventory System can help bushwalkers with a variety of bushwalk planning tasks, including: Manage which items they take bushwalking so that they do not forget anything they might need, plan meals for their walks, and automatically compile food/fuel shopping lists (lists of consumables) required to make and cook the meals for each walk. It is particularly useful for planning for groups who share food or other items, but is also useful for individual walkers.

Hi

Anyone know where we can purchase a black diamond bombshelter from in Australia?

Can’t find any store that show it as an item then sell

Cheers

It doesn't look like they are listing it on the BD Australia website, so it might not be being imported yet. I'd email BD and see if there is any plan on importing those, it doesn't look like they import many tents. Another company to contact would be Sea to Summit's distribution people (www.seatosummitdistribution.com.au) as they seem to be the brand manager in Australia for BD, they may have an idea as to if there is any plan to bring any in. Otherwise, you might have to choose something else, or grey-market it.

Thanks for the reply,

Saw one over the weekend, he paid in store for it but at the time we never thought to ask which store as we assumed it would be easy to find

I might contact sea to summit

You may have to buy O/S and have it drop shipped.
When you are paying $1800- for a tent another $150- for shipping isn't such a large percentage of the prime cost. Even adding in the 10%GST seems reasonable if it's what you want and need and can't buy it here.
Just expect it to sit in Customs for a month while they get around to processing it.
