The 23Zero Armadillo A3 is a rugged, 14 gauge, fully welded, Aluminum, four-season, hard-shell roof-top-tent. Its shell is uniquely aerodynamic styled with a semi-textured, high-gloss, black, trail-hardened finish, ready to deflect low-hanging branches or high-speed roadways in all conditions.  

The lift and fold-out design allows for easy and quick deployment, perfect for long stays or a quick overnighter. The shell includes T-slot mounting rails ready for you to mount solar panels, racks, gear boxes, etc., so you can travel with additional gear that might otherwise be left at home. 

It includes our revolutionary LST (light suppression technology) feature, which reduces light penetration to almost zero light until any windows are opened. Also, your RTT will maintain temperatures inside the tent that are up to 15% cooler. You can sleep better than ever before in our rooftop tents.  

The Armadillo A3 feels spacious and plush and is ideal for individuals, couples, or families. Extra space is created inside the tent when the shell is opened, allowing for gear to be stored inside, and the internal quilted headliner feels cozy. An Annex is available as an additional option, enclosing the ladder and providing a privacy space all the way from the base of the tent to the ground. 

Additionally, the Armadillo includes a portable USB LED clip-on-pole light, anti-rattle zippers, internal power supply pouches, and two external hanging boot bags. The 2-inch Rebound Foam mattress is newly engineered with a higher latex content to resume its original shape much faster than traditional high-density foam roof-top-tent mattresses. It feels firmer, and side-sleepers will not slowly sink to the bottom, and it comes with a breathable, removable quilted topper. 

The Armadillo A3 can be purchased with a right or left-side deployment option, which allows for optimized placement on your choice of overland rig ranging from wagons to bed-mounted mid-sized 4×4s to monster custom builds. The A3 measures 72 inches wide by 86 inches long and is a 3-4 person tent. The A2 measures 56 inches wide by 78 inches long and is a 2-3 person tent. See our website for more dimensions, technical specifications, and detailed information.

Alu-Cab USA & OK4WD — 180° Shadow Awning

The newest awning in the Alu-Cab Shadow Awning range is the 180° Shadow Awning. Once opened, this free-standing awning folds out to be parallel with your vehicle, allowing access to the rear of your vehicle, where your drawer system, fridge, and supplies are stored. There are no additional steps or poles to pitch; simply unzip the bag and walk the awning through its 180 degrees of coverage. It is so easy; one person can manage it.

The new 180º shares the same strength, durability, and quality you find in Alu-Cab’s 270° awning. The 180º Shadow Awning is made from reflective ripstop material, which assists in casting a noticeably lower-shade temperature. For seasoned campers, an awning is very often the first accessory they bolt to their vehicle, knowing that the ability to cast as much shade as possible (in the quickest time) is crucial to overland travel. For inclement weather, guy ropes can be used to prevent the pooling of water on the canvas and to guide water runoff in preferred places.

The 180º Shadow Awning measures 2.6 meters long when closed, weighs in at 53 pounds, and covers over 82 square feet, so you’ll have plenty of shade and weather protection. Fitment brackets for various mounting options are available so that it can easily be attached to a strong roof rack, tents, campers, or load bars.

The Guzzle H2O Stream leverages the well-tested water treatment technologies of ultraviolet (UV) light purification and carbon filtration in a rugged case for the overland traveler. LED UV-C unlocks the ability to quickly treat water from any freshwater source with a hefty dose of bug-killing UV rays. Paired with a sediment pre-filter to remove crunchy contaminants and a solid-activated 0.5-micron carbon block filter to remove chemicals, the Stream covers the full range of drinking water issues an overlander might encounter in the backcountry or traveling the world. And it works fast, so you can get onto the adventure. No pumping by hand, adding chemicals, or waiting for water to percolate through gravity filters. It puts clean water directly into your onboard tanks or jerry cans.

The Guzzle H2O Stream has a built-in LiFePO4 battery, which can treat up to 35 gallons of water per charge. It pumps, filters, and purifies water at 0.75 gallons per minute, allowing for quick filling of large containers, or onboard water tanks. The carbon filter removes sediment and microplastics and adsorbs a wide range of chemicals, including chlorine, VOCs, metals, and NSF 41 emerging chemicals. Carbon block is also very effective at improving the taste of drinking water. The NSF 55 listed LED UV-C purification chamber is 3rd party tested to inactivate 99.99% of bacteria, protozoa, and viruses. If you are in a remote village or campground that has water on tap, you can also use the Stream as an inline filter to make sure your drinking water supply stays clean. The LED UV element is maintenance-free, and the carbon filter lasts for 1,000 gallons or six months.

The Stream is built in the USA and features a supporting ecosystem of accessories to tailor the system to your specific adventure vehicle needs. The Backcountry Bundle pairs the most popular accessories for you and offers $100 savings.

Reach maximum two-way radio communication power with Midland’s new bundle- the MXR500AG MicroMobile® Repeater Bundle. With a truly impressive range, the MXR500AG MicroMobile Repeater Bundle is perfect for sprawling properties. 

This bundle is packed with Midland’s favorite products, including two MXT500 MicroMobile Two-Way Radios, two MXTA25 3 dB Gain Ghost Antennas, two MXTA23 Roll Bar/Mirror Mounting Brackets, two MXTA24 Low Profile Antenna Cables, and the MXR10VP Repeater. 

Midland’s MXT500 MicroMobiles truly bring the power as they’re equipped with the maximum wattage allowed by law- 50 Watts of output. This two-way radio utilizes 15 GMRS channels and eight high-powered repeater channels. With an IP66 rating, the MXT500 doesn’t just bring the power, it’s also fit for the most intense environments. With its NOAA Weather Radio capabilities, the MXT500 gives adventurers the latest, most accurate information straight from the National Weather Service. The MXT500 also has USB-C charging, meaning outdoor enthusiasts can get the fastest charge time possible for their other devices like walkie-talkies, tablets, and cellphones. Compatible with all Midland FRS and GMRS two-way radios, the MXT500 makes communication versatile. With two of the MXT500s in one bundle, communication will be crisp, clear, and unmatched in power.  

For a seamless two-way radio installation, the MXR500AG MicroMobile® Repeater Bundle also includes the necessary accessories to extend radio range. The Roll Bar/Mirror Mounting Bracket easily attaches to roll bars, roof racks, and mirrors. The 3 dB Ghost Antenna is one of Midland’s most popular accessories. Its low-profile appearance doesn’t just blend in with adventurers’ vehicles, and it won’t get in the way of incoming obstructions like trees. Beyond its appearance and ability to withstand anything the environment throws at it, the Ghost Antenna doubles signal output to lead the way to improved radio range and clarity. Adventurers will also need an antenna cable, and because this bundle comes with it, installation will be that much easier. It is straightforward when users need to route it and install it through grommets and firewalls, cutting down on time away from adventure. 

The real extender of two-way radio range comes with the MXR10VP Repeater. Repeaters act as a combination of a radio receiver and a radio transmitter. It serves as the middle man between GMRS repeater-capable radios like the MXT500. The Midland Repeater doesn’t just impressively stretch communication range; it also improves clarity. The repeater also includes the antenna, which users will want to install as high as possible. Adventurers will maximize two-way radio range with Midland’s repeater, antenna, mount, and 50-foot cable.  

This bundle has everything needed to bring reliable, unmatched two-way radio communication to any large piece of land that will keep its users connected no matter where their adventure takes them.

The UltraSwing exists because overlanders want a rock-solid, lightweight solution for carrying a full-size spare tire, bikes, and other essentials like a camp table, extra fuel, and recovery gear. We couldn’t find anything that met all these requirements and also weren’t happy with the fitment of other hitch-mounted solutions until we found the UltraSwing. RiGd has the philosophy that just because something is hitch-mounted doesn’t mean it can’t fit on your rig as properly as a bumper/swing-out. The UltraSwing is the ultimate combination of functionality and reduced weight to be your companion on the aimless journey. 

The RIGd UltraSwing is available in three sizes: 5th Generation 4Runner Specific, Multi-Fit for most mid-size trucks and SUVs, and Mega-Fit for full-size trucks, SUVs, and vans. 

All UltraSwing versions feature an adjustable/removable wheel plate that can accommodate tires up to 37 inches (or 40 inches on the Mega-Fit), a secondary swinging hitch (for bike racks), an integrated license plate relocation mount, as well as a lower receiver tow-rated to 10,000 lbs. Don’t need a spare tire carrier yet? The UltraSwing’s front plate has plug-n-play mounts for RotopaX and can also be used for mounting items like a WaterPORT. The UltraSwing weighs 65 pounds and can carry a load on the swingarm of up to 250 pounds (spare tire, bikes, fuel, etc.).  

UltraSwing accessories include the UltraTable drop-down camp table, as well as mounts for Hi-Lift, RotopaX, jerry cans, and a molle panel to mount just about anything you can think of. Plus, RIGd offers a range of backup camera relocation options for most popular vehicles. The UltraSwing is proudly made in the USA.

It leaves the opposite side open to allow access to the bed.

The Wrappon Trekker WT-4 Toilet is a game-changer for anyone who loves to travel off the beaten path. Its compact, simple, and hermetically sealing toilet eliminates all the drawbacks of traditional portable camp toilets. With the Trekker, you won’t have to deal with the mess and hassle found when using buckets, cassettes, or compost toilets. The Japanesse-designed Wrappon products were designed to support areas affected by natural disasters and have found their way to the overland community. 

Operating the Trekker is simple: start by installing the 50-count roll of triple-layered, tear-resistant waste bags, and let the Trekker do the rest. When you’re done, press the flush button on the remote, and the Trekker will hermetically seal waste and odor and dispense the air-tight waste bag that’s safe to dispose of in any waste bin.

Adding Wrappon’s supplied Powder Coagulant to the waste bag, made of super-absorbent resin that quickly solidifies liquids, provides an extra safeguard for keeping waste contained. The Coagulating Powder contains a deodorizing agent to work in conjunction with the Wrappon waste bag to ensure that no odor escapes the sealed waste pouch.

The Wrappon Trekker also has other impressive features, such as a remote that tracks your flushes so you know when it’s time to reload another 50-count roll of waste bags. Its compact design breaks down into a suitcase-sized box, making storage a breeze, and the waste bags can remain in place. Plus, it’s powered by a 12-volt power supply that works in all vehicles, or opt for Wrappon’s rechargeable power pack. The Wrappon Trekker is an excellent option for vans, trailers, and Overland travel vehicles.
