REVIEW: Midland MXPW500 Ammo Can Base Station

The MXPW500 Ammo Can Base Station from Midland provides overlanders with a mobile home base station to maintain a connection with your party at camp while others in the group enjoy the backcountry.

REVIEW: Roofnest Condor Overland

The Condor Overland from Roofnest takes the hybrid rooftop tent design to the next level providing a compact package when closed but a roomy and comfortable space when deployed. The aluminum shell not only keeps the tent protected, but also offers mounting points for tools and other accessories. 

Gear Showcase: December, 2022

Winter is a great time to hit the backcountry when crowds, temperatures, and bugs are at an all-time low. So grab some gear and pick a weekend for a getaway during all of the hustle and bustle.

Editors’ Choice: Overland Generators

Vehicle-assisted adventure has a different look than it did just a decade ago. Specifically, our reliance on wayfinding electronics, camp lighting, and satellite internet makes it much different than simply loading your rig with a tent, your headlamp, and a cooler of food and heading off into the backcountry for the weekend.

The Ultimate Overland Holiday Gift Guide 2022

The holidays will be here before you know it, and it’s never too early to get started on your shopping list. We’ve rounded up some of the best gear to outfit adventurers heading into the new year.

REVIEW: Eezi-Awn Swift Awning

The Eezi-Awn Swift is a simple, robust, lightweight, and easy to use awning that warrants strong consideration if you are looking for a rectangular awning.

REVIEW: 23Zero Bandit 1400 Swag

The 23Zero Bandit 1400 is a luxuriously large swag that’s easy to set up, has a thick, comfortable mattress with huge openings for easy egress and wonderful airflow.

Gear Showcase: November, 2022

This month we’ve rounded up some great items from our favorite brands. From traction boards to get unstuck in a hurry to a radio that makes sure you can stay in touch with your crew, there’s some great gear for every overlander.

Editors’ Choice: Overland Lighting

Having the best lighting solutions for your overlanding adventure can make or break your trip. Build quality, lumen output, and affordability are all concerns when picking out overland lighting solutions. We have compiled some of our favorite lights for your overland vehicle and around your campsite.

Gear Showcase: October, 2022

Here at Overland Expo, we’re big supporters of camping year around, but several of us agree that if we had to choose, fall would be our top pick for adventuring season. It’s perfect for a night around the fire, and in many places, the foliage shows off its best colors

Editors’ Choice: Overland Wheels

One of the first mods many vehicle owners go for is a new, shiny set of wheels for their rig. But aside from aesthetics, there are a lot of things to think about before you click the “buy now” button.

Quick Spin: Ducati DesertX

A quick spin on Ducati’s DesertX reveals a powerful, balanced mid-weight adventure motorcycle. Well designed and easy handling, it promises tons of off-road fun.

Editors’ Choice: Overland Recovery Gear and Devices

Recovery gear is definitely a category where you shouldn’t skimp on the quality or quantity of your gear. Of course, it’s also one of the aspects of overlanding that dramatically benefits from quality training.

Gear Showcase: September, 2022

Fall is prime adventure season for lots of overlanders and outdoor enthusiasts. Temps are dropping, so a nice fire is a welcome addition to the evening activities.

REVIEW: 23Zero Peregrine 270 Awning

The 23Zero Peregrine 270 is a solidly constructed awning that provides a massive amount of shade for a reasonable price. With its five arm, 270 degrees of coverage, you get shade on one whole side of your vehicle along with your tailgate.

Gear Showcase: August, 2022

It’s mid-adventure season, and we have some great gear options for you this month, from electronics and trail armor to cargo boxes and portable air conditioners. You read that right, portable air conditioning. Read on to find our picks for the best new gear on the overland market.

REVIEW: Gazelle T4 Hub Tent Overland Edition

Gazelle’s T4 Hub Tent Overland Edition is a quick-deploying tent with lots of interior volume and enviable headroom. In its base form, it pops up in around a minute and folds away nearly as quickly. However, it isn’t without its foibles.

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.

What I Learned on a 480-Mile Pure-Electric Overland Trip

I’ll admit that I went into my Lightning loan expecting it to fall flat. Instead, Ford’s latest pure-electric pickup proved to me that EVs are indeed ready to take on overland adventures — albeit carefully orchestrated ones.
