Editors’ Choice: Campsite Gear & Accessories

Sometimes it’s the little things that can make a good trip great. While we’re strong proponents of keeping your packing list under control, we also like to be prepared, and that includes preparing to be comfortable.

Editors’ Choice: Best Overland Navigation Tools

Overlanding is always about the journey, but let’s be honest – the journey isn’t much fun if you don’t know where you’re going. That’s where a combination of navigation tools like paper maps, GPS and SOS devices, digital apps, and planning tools come in.

Editors’ Choice: First Aid Equipment and Training

A first aid kit is one of those pieces of equipment that you should definitely have but hope you never need. However, if you’re in the backcountry enough or even wrenching on your rig, you’ll inevitably need a band-aid or two.

Editors’ Choice: Overlanding Coolers

Insulated coolers are a great alternative to fridges and freezers inside of your overland vehicle. These are some of our favorite overlanding coolers.

Editors’ Choice: Best Overland Tires

Buying overland tires is a confusing and sometimes daunting experience for folks who are new to overland travel or those looking to make a change.

Editors’ Choice: Camp Sleeping Gear

On every journey, even if it’s just a short overnight, your comfort at night can make or break your trip. A restless night due to a sore back or hours spent shivering in an inadequate may make for a good story, but it’s definitely no fun at the moment.

Editors’ Choice: Best Overland Camp Chairs

Vehicle-based adventure travel, whether by truck, SUV, or motorcycle, can really push your muscles and back to the limits. So it’s important that once we’ve wrapped up our journey for the day, stretched our legs and set up camp, we have a comfortable seat upon which to spend the rest of the evening.

Best Traction Boards for Overlanding

Traction boards may seem cliched. But they’re absolutely essential recovery gear that every overlander should carry. Even if you have a winch onboard your rig, sometimes the only thing that can get you unstuck is a good pair (or two) or traction boards. And these are our favorite.

Editors’ Choice: Best Overlanding Kitchen Gear

Maybe you’re a dehydrated meal type of adventurer (no judgment), or maybe you’re an aficionado of epicurean delights on your overland trips. Whatever the case, there are a few indispensable items that will elevate your backcountry cooking experience when you’re out on the trail.

Editors’ Choice: Overlanding Fridges & Freezers

When you’re ready to step up from a traditional cooler and ice setup to a fridge freezer, it’s hard to know where to start. So, we compiled a list of great options for overlanders shopping for a fridge freezer for their overlanding rig.

Gear Collections: Overlanding Awnings

From keeping rain off your camp kitchen to shading you from the sun, even a simple awning can have a big effect on protecting you from the elements. This is our list of the best awnings for overlanding in 2022.

Gear Collections: Overlanding Jacks

Everybody has seen them: off-road jacks. Specifically, everyone has seen Hi-Lift Jacks, the fire-engine red jacks that are bolted to virtually every 4×4 vehicle in America. Although they may be perceived as visual flare more than a trail-recovery tool, they do serve a purpose if used properly.

Editors’ Choice: Best Overlanding Air Compressors

It might seem like a hassle if you’re darting between the dirt and the highway multiple times in a trip, but airing down your tires is essential in overlanding. That’s because airing down expands your tire’s contact patch with the ground, giving it more traction. And traction is essential off road.

Gear Collections: Campsite Cocktails

Of course, drinking and driving don’t mix, but drinking after driving can certainly be awesome. Take your post-adventure happy hour game to the next level with some great gear to add to your camp bar kit.

Gear Collections: Adventure Motorcycle Camping Gear

When you’re packing for a multi-day adventure motorcycle ride, think backpacking rather than car camping. Just because space is of the essence in your panniers, you don’t have to sacrifice comfort after a long day on the bike. Here are a few of our favorite moto-camp essentials for extended rides.
