  1. Hi mate. How you finding the Polaris? How much did you pay if you don't mind me asking? 

  2. Currently considering the purchase of a GPS tracker for emergencies and communication in remote areas. Does anyone here run a Spot or a Delorme? Interested to hear your thoughts on either unit. I like the idea of being able to send a message to selected persons in the event of a minor incident / break down or to just check in. Any info greatly appreciated. Cheers, Matt
  3. I mentioned in my OP about not having to run a harness under your pack. I snapped a couple of pics with it on my pack. Two top straps just clip onto your shoulder harness Two bottom clips attach to your bottom straps with a slider It felt pretty comfy with it on the pack, not restrictive with a fair bit of adjustment. Cheers Matt
  4. Pack & harness = 480g Pack, harness and 2 x pouches = 608g Cheers, Matt Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  5. I was initially looking at the vortex until I saw the Moroka on a face book post. There’s a few options which varies the price, pack & harness $190 + 2 x pouches & straps for back pack mount $249, + 3ltr hydration pack $299. Cheers
  6. I’m yet to attach to my bag, I run a couple of different packs (non Moroka), so hopefully it will fit. Great advice, not to fill it with crap. Learnt that the hard way when first out backpacking years ago, lol less is best! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  7. Hi mate, Strap is double velcro, feels nice and strong. Zip is pretty quiet, easy to move. Hope that helps, Cheers Matt Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  8. Thought I’d throw this up for anyone considering bino chest packs. Have been chasing one for some time, finally pulled the pin and purchased one from Moroka. It arrived by post today, and so far I’m pretty impressed. Plenty of room and holds a decent amount of gear. It also came with two pouches that can be side mounted, these fit my radio and GPS It has a magnetic front pouch, of which I was Initially hesitant about, concerned it wouldn’t hold. From the feel of it, it seems to be stronger than first thought, takes a bit of pressure to open it by hand. Will be interested to see how it holds up when snagged up in the scrub. It has many compartments (some zippered), one of which has a 10 ammo loops. The harness system is low profile and comfy to wear, also came with bag attachments if you want to drop the harness when wearing a back pack. I do a good mix of both, so a handy option to have. First impressions without going bush, I think it will be a good addition to the kit. Keen to get out in the bush and give this pack a proper run! Cheers, Matt Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  9. Murphy's law to back pack items / weight - lay out what you think you want and remove at least of half of it [emoji6] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  10. The vortex guide is another similar product
  11. One that has taken my eye was one made by FHF Gear, unfortunately it's ex USA and not sealed, the sides are open at the top of pack. I will definitely be checking out the S4 Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  12. Thanks for all the replies [emoji106] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  13. Depending on brand, some call them harness which includes a small chest pack or some only have a harness without a pack. I have found a few I like but most are ex USA, can't seem to find to many in AUS
  14. Wondering if anyone here runs a chest / front bino pack? Do they sit ok with a day/multi day backpack? Cheers
  15. Howdy all I'm contemplating putting a dimmer switch on my handheld spotlight power supply. Wondering if anyone here is currently running any aftermarket dimmer switches? Thanks in advance, Matt
