Dear Gossamer Gear,

Late in 2010 I took my Gossamer Gear trekking poles to New Zealand, and someone at GG asked if I could send any photos of my GG trekking poles in action in New Zealand. In response to that request, please find the attached photos. They were taken in late September of 2011 on my 3 night/4 days hike ("tramp" as we call hiking here in NZ) of the Cape Reinga Coastal Walkway. The tramp takes you right around a good chunk of the top of the north island of New Zealand.

The poles continue to work flawlessly, and my Kiwi tramping partners are amazed at how light they are.

Thanks for making a fantastic product at a reasonable price, and know that your products will continue to be used down here in NZ.

All the best,

Mike Conlon Kaitaia, NZ
