Should I buy a down jacket and a tent in thamel or have them brought from australia?

Hi,

two things. first of all, how much can i buy a 4 man tent in thamel for? i don't need anything fancy, just something I can carry in my backpack.

secondly, I am able to get a 'kathmandu' brand down jacket for149 in australia. would this quality be better than the ones i was planning to buy in thamel?

here is the link to the product in question: kathmandu.com.au/14.html?cat...

i am planning to camp in nepal, trek in tibet in october, camp in bhutan in november and at least stay in ladakh in the winter... must stay warm!

thanks for your advice

    I am heading there next week and have the same question. Does I buy a few more pairs of trousers here or when I get there!
