Travelling to New Zealand with Dylan Moron

Dylan Moron, photographer and Pyrenex jackets fan for several years, shares with us his daily life in New Zealand, allowing us to travel to those distant lands with breathtaking landscapes.


For this trip, he was equipped with Pyrenex down jackets and windbreakers as well as a natural down sleeping bag in order to enjoy this long roadtrip in optimal conditions of warmth and comfort.


On the sunny hills of Lake Tekapo and during his visit in the city of Bluff, Dylan is wearing the Montardo down jacket. Light and warm, it is ideal for traveling when temperatures are variable or moderate. Ultra packable, it allows a quick storage and little incumbent in the bag.


In rainy or windy weather, Dylan is equipped with the Guido parka, notably during his excursion to the Nelson Lakes, one of the sunniest places in New Zealand (normally). This short parka is very technical: stretch fabric, waterproof, breathable with taped seams. It can withstand cool and wet climate, and provides flexibility of movement throughout the outings. Mount Cook / Aoraki, highest point in New Zealand, is 3724 meters high, is located above the Tasman Glacier in Aoraki / Mount Cook National Park. Since 1998, its name has combined the name of the Māori legend (indigenous Polynesian populations) and the one paying homage to James Cook, English explorer and first European to map New Zealand. The summit was climbed for the first time in 1894 by Tom Fyfe, George Graham and Jack Clarke.


The nights are chilly in New Zealand, and Dylan was able to enjoy the comfort and warmth of a Pyrenex sleeping bag. He chose the Nepal 800 to cope with low temperatures during bivouacs. Filled with 100% natural down and feathers, this sleeping bag makes it possible to tackle relatively cold nights (around 2 ° C), without the slightest apprehension. Even indoors this sleeping bag is appreciated, especially in winter and during the seasons.
