About

FOR the love of adventure

Our love for great back country gear comes from spending 25 years operating commercially in the outdoors. Through our parent company Packrafting NZ, we take people from all around the world on packrafting expeditions into some of the most exquisite locations deep in Fiordland National Park.

We started Light & Fast to connect you to better gear for better adventures in the outdoors too.

OUR STORY

The gear you use when adventuring in the outdoors can completely change the experience. We know this. We’ve lived it.

When it comes to adventures, you need gear that you can trust. Kit that is light, fit for purpose and perfect for you. Gear that let’s you cover more ground, quicker. Gear that’s light enough to help you adventure for longer.

All kit on our site is the highest quality, backed by professionals. And we don’t just sell gear, we sell repair and service too. It’s about ensuring gear can go the distance with you.
