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.

Gear Showcase: May, 2022

Spring will soon be in the air, at least for most of us, but if you’re still months away from seeing the thermometer break wintery temps, our apologies. Regardless of your weather situation, it’s always a good idea to check out some new gear. 

Truma’s C69 Dual-Zone Fridge Keeps Cool in a Dust Storm

Truma’s C69 dual-zone fridge/freezer can fit 87 12-ounce cans. It’s relatively efficient in both its size and power consumption. And it has a lightning-fast and easy-to-use smartphone app that makes keeping your food and drink cool on the trail a cinch.

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.

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.

The short days of midwinter are a great time to reevaluate your gear before hitting the trail for your next adventure. Here are some of our suggestions for your consideration.

Gear Review: OZTENT RV-3 Ground Tent

OZTENT’s RV-3 tent sets up in 30 seconds (no, really), packs down nearly as fast, and can withstand 50-mile-per-hour winds. These bona fides make it one of the best ground tents I’ve ever tested.

Review: Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 4xe

Jeep’s Wrangler Rubicon 4xe is the only plug-in hybrid with solid front and rear axles, making it a very compelling eco-friendly and capable overlanding rig.

Gear Chronicles: Midland Radios

Choice of radio communication technology has become contentious in the overlanding community in recent years. Some people swear by CB. Others prefer ham radio. There’s another, easier choice GMRS. And Midland Radio’s MXT115VP3 hits that sweet spot between useful portable and powerful hardwired units in one.
