Adventure Trail Outfitters — The Overland Shower and Water System

Say goodbye to sweaty, dirty, restless nights of sleep and cold water clean-ups when camping with the Overland Shower and Water System – It gives you the comfort of your home shower, even when there’s no home in sight. The Overland Shower and Water System can deliver 120-degree water in seconds, and with the same water pressure that you are used to at home.  A unique design makes using our hot water system easy to set up and even easier to use.

The Overland Shower and Water System is the world’s first portable, “plug and play,” high-performance hot water system that comes complete inside a small rugged case. No bigger than a typical suitcase, it measures 18” wide and 25” tall for the Peak model and 17” wide and 21” tall for the Summit model, and both models weigh less than 32 pounds.   With this system, there is no longer a need to heat water on a camp stove – just flip the switch and have instant pressurized hot water to shower with and clean up dishes, or in the cold water setting, just wash up your gear. Is anyone up for going to bed clean and refreshed? 

There are no power issues with the Overland Shower and Water System.  You do not need 120-volt electrical service, and there are no batteries to charge. Off-grid or on, you power the Overland Shower using the outlet in your adventure rig (12V/24V DC) or any other portable 12-volt power system.  The water is heated using the same liquid propane you bring along for your cook stove.  Highly efficient, the Overland Shower’s Eccotemp EL5 water heater can provide as much as 40 minutes of continuous hot water with just a small 1-pound LP canister.  Plus, to create the most efficient use of your water and LP based on your climate conditions, you can use the settings on the Eccotemp EL5 water heater to control the gallons of water per minute (gpm) that pass through the system and the amount of LP being used to generate your optimal water temperature.

As mentioned, the Overland Shower and Water System comes in two models: the Summit comes in a fabricated aluminum case that can be mounted to the exterior of a truck camper, teardrop, or gear trailer, and the Peak comes in an injection-molded polypropylene case and is designed for a more portable “carry and use” function.  Each case is ruggedly designed for its specific use. So the next time you get the itch to head out for adventure…..go out, get dirty, and get clean with the Overland Shower and Water System.

Fear not, Cuddy the Composting Toilet is revolutionizing off-grid toilets, offering a clean, compact, and odor-free experience for adventurers worldwide. So say goodbye to the woes of catholes and say hello to the comfy world of Cuddy!

In 2021, the masterminds at CompoCloset unveiled Cuddy to the world and raised over $300,000 in crowdfunding. Everyone knew Cuddy wasn’t just a typical toilet; Cuddy was the comfortable, modern, practical, and portable solution that outdoor enthusiasts, vanlifers, and tiny home dwellers had been demanding. With its water-saving, compact, and odor-free design, Cuddy the Composting Toilet allows you to enjoy the great outdoors and going off-grid without worrying about bathroom stresses – like dropping your phone in a dreaded outhouse.

This means no more wasting water when flushing or carrying bulky black tanks, saving your precious water supply and lightening your load on every outdoor escapade.

These five features make Cuddy the king of composting toilets: an independent liquids bottle with a smart LED indicator holds 1.7 gallons (6.5 liters) of urine; a separate solids bin with an agitator holds 3.9 gallons (14.7 liters) of waste; the agitator handle kickstarts the composting process by mixing solids with carbon-rich materials like sustainable peat moss, sawdust, or coco coir; an internal fan and self-closing valve prevent potential odors; and a reusable carbon filter efficiently traps and neutralizes any smells, which can easily be reused and refilled with aquarium carbon from most pet stores.

No matter if you’re camping, overlanding, or living off-grid full-time, Cuddy is your best travel buddy and the odor-free throne for the great outdoors!

Far Fetched Adventures — K9 First Responder Course: First Aid for your Adventurous Dog!

Dogs bring a unique sense of curiosity and discovery that enriches every adventure. Arguably, they teach us to stay engaged in the present and remind us of our own wild. Keeping them safe should be a priority.

Born from a personal experience in which an animal needed roadside emergency care, Far Fetched Adventures is now a dog adventure brand that offers in-depth, practical first-aid training for pet parents that travel and explore with their dogs. Whether extended expeditions or trips to your local trails, being capable of helping your dog when they need you the most is a responsibility that shouldn’t be taken lightly. Founded by veterinarian, search and rescue EMT, adventurer and medical educator, Dr. Stacey Thomas has created an online K9 First Responder course that every pet parent should be adding to their medical training tool box. The course walks pet parents through a plethora of actionable skills via video instruction, such as how to perform a proper physical exam, how to assess vital signs, how to identify an emergency, what medications are safe for dogs, how to intervene properly for cut paws, burns, breaks, heat exhaustion, and so much more. From mild to major emergencies, Dr. Thomas breaks down each scenario in easy-to-understand steps that can be watched over and over again.

“Having been on numerous search and rescue missions over the last decade, it’s still surprising how many people carry a first aid kit but have no training on how to actually use it in an emergency for themselves, not to mention how to use it to help their dog. It’s a necessary skill that everyone should obtain.” says Dr. Thomas. While not meant to replace veterinary care, this course teaches pet parents how to render pre-hospital first aid until they can get to a veterinary hospital.

The course is 100% online and taught from a self-curated, robust first aid kit that Thomas carries on search and rescue missions. It’s also available on her website for purchase with the course, but she says any solid first aid kit with a few dog-centric modifications should be sufficient. You don’t have to have any prior first aid experience for humans or dogs to take the K9 First Responder course, and since it’s online, you can review sections as many times as you need with lifetime access to the material including future updates. Dr. Thomas is also available for live course bookings as well. We’re pretty sure that all the adventurous dogs out there would be stoked to gift this to their human this Christmas. After all, if you keep them safe, they’ll keep you wild.

Whether you need to charge personal electronics, TVs, or refrigerators, the highly compact & transportable, 32-pound Outlaw can handle it all. If you have to charge many devices simultaneously, the Outlaw also comes with a wide array of ports: two USB-A QC3.0, two USB-C, two DC 12-Volt barrel Jack, one DC 12-Volt Car Port, one DC 12-Volt EC5 Quick Port & one DC 12 Volt 4-pin Charge Receptacle.

You will never have to worry about cutting any of your trips short to recharge the Outlaw, which can be used throughout each day up to 100 percent depth of discharge without impacting battery health.

Coming in at less than half the weight of the competition, the Rugged Road 65 is unlike anything else on the market. In addition to its lightweight build, this cooler holds ice for days on end, floats upright (even when fully loaded), AND has a lifetime warranty! This truly is the one cooler that does it all. 
So, how has Rugged Road managed to create an ultralight cooler that does not sacrifice quality or ice retention? The secret is in the Rigorite coating.

This unique fire pit controls the wood-burning fire with 360° Signature Airflow Technology, creating optimal airflow and a secondary burn to eliminate smoke and create ash. The Yukon can be placed anywhere in your yard or campsite thanks to the included Yukon stand, while the Yukon shield and shelter keep loose ash from escaping and the Yukon protected from the weather.

Wrappon’s PF-1 space-saving toilet is designed for adventurers looking for the perfect toilet solution without sacrificing vital space in any vehicle or trailer. Simple to set up, The Wrappon PF-1 uses a single-use waste bag with the same triple-layer technology found in the Wrappon Trekker waste bag that is hermetically sealed by manually lifting the flush lever found in the front of the toilet. After the Pf-1 chimes to let you know your waste bag is hermetically sealed, your waste bag is safe to discard in any waste bin along your journey. 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 bag. 

The PF-1 has the same power options found in the Wrappon Trekker. Both offer a 12-volt power supply and a rechargeable portable power pack option. 

MSRP: $595
