Not sure about shopping online or what type of service will you receive?

Take a look at what customers think about shopping with ARea 51 ... and how they find our products and service

Just letting you know that the gear turned up this morning at 9:30. I was a bit nervous about ordering off the web but the pack was exactly what I wanted (that whistle on the sternum strap is something else!!), and my partner is happy with his Wisp shirt.  He'll be wearing your Area51 cap this weekend on the Heaphy Ultramarathon and we'll certainly spread the word about your excellent service. Wellington is very limited for this type of gear.
Sue, New Zealand

Just a quick email to let you know how well all the gear I have bought from you over time performed at Geo over the weekend ... basically all of my gear worked a treat which I guess is a sign of just how much hard work you put in to investigating and testing all the gear that you sell and speaks volumes for the advice that you have provided me over time.  I greatly thank you for all the advice you have given me and the gear you have directed me towards as Geo over the weekend had some really shite periods which put gear to the test and I was thankful for the gear I had.  Once again thanks

Brett, QLD

I would like to pass on my thanks for the advice that Greg freely passed onto me
in relation to the Map Board, compass and navigation tips.  The order I requested
arrived in a very timely fashion ... I will be recommending your company to my team, friends and other racers that we come across.
Once again thanks for your professional approach. 
Nice to see every now and again.

You guys rock!!  They say patience is a virtue, and Ive been very happy with your service in the past, plus - try getting this kind of specialised kit in the Northern Territory - if it aint stocked in a fishing shop, its not going to be up here!
Nick, NT

Thanks for your help guys, that 's better service than i have ever seen before!  
I buy a fair bit of MTB stuff from Torpedo 7 and the service has never been that personal and quick.  Thanks again!
Todd, Brisbane

I'm grinning from ear to ear (and its not because I only have a week left of work). Just got all the gear, and I wanted to say a huge THANKYOU, because it all fits great, and the delivery was so quick! The shirts are perfect size, which is great, because now I know for future orders what will fit me ... so thankyou again for all your help, you have a very happy customer

Stephanie, NSW


The support you guys give the sport and the customer service we receive set you apart as a clear choice above any other supplier. The gear you supply is top notch and the advice is priceless. I look forward to competing in the XPD and will happily carry the Area51 name with me through the race and all others I do.

Matthew, Brisbane

I have had nothing but really good advice on products and it’s great to be able to see you guys at races and say “hey what do you think about this …” and then know that I am getting advice that can be backed up through having used it.  I have other mates that have ordered through you and they have always been really happy with the product and service so I will continue to tell people who want gear to buy through you.

Brett, Brisbane

I have been very happy with the service and would not hesitate to recommmend ARea51 to anyone
Ross, NSW

Thanks for letting me know what the status of the order is.  Your online shop has some great stuff at good prices.  I've passed on your address to a few people already. Also, thanks very much for the express post.  That's great service, again.
Joe, WA

It is a pleasure to deal with you guys.  Your advice is helpful, unbiased and open.  Your service is first class, and I am more than happy to recommend you to my mates and others.

Your site was recommended to me by a Brisbane based XPD teammate as having awesome adventure gear...boy was she right!
Jacqui, QLD

Thanks for the shoes, your advice was spot on. I put the Salomon's though their paces last week and they performed brilliantly culminating in an 11hr hike on Saturday and backed up the next day with no ankle soreness and no rubbing. Thanks again.
Grant, PNG 


Thanks so much for replying so quickly and also your information is great.
Alicia, Sydney


I received my order this morning only about 36hrs after placing it. Thank you very much for the speedy delivery. I am one very happy customer and will highly recommend you to all ... thought I would also add that your website is very user friendly.

Danielle, Sunshine Coast


I took the pack out for the first time this morning and I like it. Very impressed. Definitely what I was after. Thanks. Hope things go well for Area51

Shaun, Sunshine Coast


Thank you for all your help, I look forward to doing more business with ARea51 in the future.
Sally, WA


I appreciate the advice and love the explanations - keep them coming.  With all the interest in this round of XPD you should consider sending out those sorts of gear tips in a weekly or monthly posting - with all the first timers I bet a lot of people will be needing stuff they don't even realize they need yet!

BTW I found the golite paclite goretex awesome - couldn't be happier.
Rachel, Brisbane


A quick thank you for getting my order to me in RECORD TIME!!!!!  
This must be EXTREME post... thanks



Thanks for that - you will be hearing from me again as there are a few other thing
I would like to get from your store - the previous order you sent arrived today - excellent

Cynthia, Mt Isa


Went over the gear after yesterday and must say this gear is an absolute cracker, a lot of top quality gear and feel honoured to be racing in such fine equipment.
I just hope we can go as good as the gear will perform?
