The West Australian O-Shop will be open every day of the Karrak Karnival (except for the School Championship events). The shop is operated by Tony Simpkins on behalf of OAWA, and all profits go to helping our juniors.
For the carnival we will be specialising in providing Moscompass and Inov-8, and to this end we are offering an advance order service so that we can provide their products at your request.
Compasses available are Moscompass 3 baseplate and thumb models. Moscompass tested their needles in Australia some years ago and found that their most stable needle is also the fastest in our magnetic field, so the ‘3’ models are the only ones they make for Australia.
See their catalogue here. Moscompass also supply magnifiers which fit their thumb compasses, and can also be fitted to any make of thumb or baseplate compass.
We can source any model Inov-8 shoe at competitive prices. The most suitable Inov-8 shoes for orienteering are the X-Talon, Oroc and Mudclaw models, but many of our members prefer the Roclite and Trailroc trail running ranges for their wider fit.
The Inov-8 web page http://www.inov-8.com/New/Global/Index.asp?L=26 has extensive details of all aspects of their range. Look under ‘Off Road’ to view their trail and off-trail range. Please consult their size chart if you have not worn Inov-8s previously – select ‘Technology’ from the menu at the bottom of any Inov-8 web page, then select ‘Size Chart’.
We will have small stocks of these products, but to make sure that we can meet your requirements, and given the lead time required to source the compasses and shoes overseas, please give us your order for Moscompass by 3rd September, and Inov-8 by 10th September 2014.
Our shop also sells a range of other orienteering gear, including Silva compasses, Aries gaiters, O-Pants, Sportident SI9 and SI11 cards, control description holders, etc. We will also have some sale items at bargain prices, including shoes in mainly children’s and small women’s sizes.
