OUR STORY We opened our store in 2017 – with the goal of offering the best value and lightweight ‘hiking gear’ in Australia and New Zealand. It all started when our eldest child was faced with his first 2-day hike with his Scout Group. His pack weight was limited to 25% of his body weight. As he weighed 36kg at the time this was indeed a huge problem as his limit was a mere 9kg. At weigh-in, he was well over his limit at 16kg and we vowed to fix this for next time. It was a pivotal moment that led to the formation of K2MG. Over the months we questioned why all of his gear was so heavy and bulky and how we could change it. Conventionally speaking, ‘lightweight hiking’ means your base weight is no more than 9kg. The locally sourced gear was too limited and expensive which forced our search wider. It took our search online, where sadly, the disappointment continued. We encountered: misrepresented products, false advertising, slow and failed deliveries – We are changing the Status Quo.
