Hi Harry,

Have you tried eBay? I bet there's plenty of them going second hand. Might be hard getting it shipped to NZ though, unless you find someone selling them in NZ ;) Otherwise, there must be some other second hand options. There's the Trading Post in Aus - is there anything similar in NZ?

Try this website: Its like eBay, but its a NZ site, so you pay way less for delivery, or if you are in the sam city, you can arrange with seller to collect. You need to register to buy or sell anything from this site.

Also, keep an eye out for sales at Kathmandu. Sometimes they will have up to 50% off, and they have backpacks, tents, slepping bags etc...all brand new of course!

Good luck
