At Vuno Hiking we are passionate about what we do, we are ultralight weight hiking specialists. Furthermore we don’t just sell our product, we use it, we live it, we breathe it. Most of the gear we sell is tested on New Zealand hiking tracks. These tracks are some of New Zealand’s most popular hiking tracks. These tracks include the Kepler Track, Routeburn Track, Abel Tasman Great Walk and the Tongariro Northern Circuit and the Rakiura Track. As a result of this our gear is tested to suit New Zealand conditions on these tracks plus more.
How we Started
Like most people who first get into overnight hikes, our founders set off to the Pinnacles Hut with gear purchased from large box retailers. This gear was grossly overweight and look up large amounts of space in their packs. The sleeping bag alone weighed over 1.7 kg and took up half the space in the pack. After completing the hike our founders set out in search of lighter hiking equipment.
Where do you go to Buy Ultralight Weight Hiking Equipment?
But where is the best place to buy ultralight weight hiking sleeping bags, tents and other gear from? Traditional large box retailers claim light weight however most can’t justify ranging slow moving specialist products. Instead they focus on fast moving profitable lines. Most of the ultralight weight hiking specialists are online however mostly specialize in either ultra light weight tents, light weight sleeping bags or mattresses. But it seemed hard to find one place which had it all.

Feedback and Reviews
We understand it is hard to trust online stores. Our website does not have an online review system, we don’t see the point as these can easily be manipulated by the owner of the website. We provide some feedback which is copied across from our Trademe store which trades under Alternative Brands NZ.
You can buy some of our range from our Trademe store however in some cases the pricing will be higher due to high Trademe fees. To view our feedback from our Trademe customers you can click here.
