Hi Benjamin

> yet many of my previous customers (and me) spend our money on such gear because there is not really any local alternative. We have no REI, and most of the larger retailers have focused on capturing the travel and 'wilderness chic' market. To the smaller brands available in Australia and New Zealand, 'lightweight' means using a slightly thinner canvas.

Yes, yes, and yes.
