Aquor Water Systems’ sleek stainless steel RV City Water Inlet is ideal for campers, RVs, overland vehicles, storage tanks, and DIY applications. Mount the RV City Water Inlet horizontally or vertically, and use it for incoming or outgoing water flow—it can be used with pressurized water or adapted as a non-pressurized gravity fill. Hook up the flush-mount hydrant to city/shore water connections with ease—simply push and twist the included removable faucet hose connector. To reverse hose threads for incoming water, use Aquor’s double female hose adapter

Aquor’s reliable leak-proof system is built to last 20+ years without maintenance thanks to a unique valve design that uses water pressure to seal, high-performance Viton O-rings, and corrosion-resistant marine grade 316L stainless steel. Acetal resin connectors are crush-proof up to 200+ pounds and tested for 150,000+ cycles of use. Now that’s heavy duty! The rubber EPDM plug cover fits snugly into the outlet, providing necessary protection when driving on backroads by sealing out dust and debris. A standard ½” female NPT inlet is included with the hydrant, and 90-degree elbow inlets are available to fit just about any setup.

Armorlite

Vehicle flooring should be tough enough to withstand any overlanding adventure, and Armorlite is the perfect all-weather replacement flooring system for the job. 

Armorlite is more than just a mat, and with its factory fit and seamless appearance, it offers many advantages. Built with ruggedness in mind, Armorlite features a marine-grad topcoat that prevents scratching and marring and offers excellent grip and water protection. The entire floor surface includes an insulation layer which decreases both heat and road noise in the cabin. Made from 100% polyester, this layer also eliminates the growth of mold, mildew, and stink. 

Armorlite’s built-in water drainage system that works with the vehicle’s drain holes makes cleaning the floor a breeze. And for all the dog lovers, don’t worry – Fido’s fur won’t stick to Armorlite like it does to the carpet. 

Armorlite products are available now for Jeep, with other platforms coming soon.

CBI Offroad — Aluminum Skid Plates

Nothing is worse than a fun overland adventure that gets ruined due to a vehicle malfunction. Many off-roading expeditions have been cut short by unexpected boulders or rocks in the trail. These can pop up and shred your oil pan, damage your transfer case, or cause any number of other issues to your vehicle. The undercarriage of your rig is where some of the most vital components of your vehicle are exposed, which is why installing skid plates is one of the most important mods you can do to improve your rig. 

CBI Offroad Fab has a wide range of skid plates to protect your rig on the most arduous terrain. Skid plates come in all shapes and sizes, but CBI has perfected aluminum skid plates. When searching for the perfect skid plate, you will often come across two options: steel or aluminum. Each has pros and cons, but we will focus on the aluminum ones. A CBI aluminum skid plate provides maximum protection while keeping weight to a minimum. The complete skid plate package on the Toyota Tacoma weighs in at just 80 lbs which is nothing compared to the protection it affords your vehicle. A full range of skid plates is also available for Tundras, Broncos, 4Runners, GX460s, Colorados, and the 3rd Gen Nissan Frontier.

Most skid plates that CBI manufacture features a three-piece design that starts at the engine block and runs all the way back to the transfer case. This provides maximum protection for whatever you might run into on the trail. A few vehicles even have a gas tank skid that protects your fuel supply from leaking out due to a puncture. 

Each aluminum skid plate is designed to mount to existing points on the vehicle for easy installation. Almost all skid plates manufactured by CBI can be installed in less than an hour and feature cutouts so you can reach your oil drain plug and oil filter. This allows you to keep up with your vehicle’s maintenance without having to remove the entire skid plate. They are also designed with drainage holes so that when doing a water crossing, you leave the mud and water behind and not stuck underneath your vehicle. Skid plates are designed to take a beating and get scratched, but the full aluminum construction means you don’t have to worry about rust prevention or corrosion issues. This gives you more time out on the trails and less time worrying about maintenance in the garage. 

Spend more time doing what you love and less time in the shop with a quality set of CBI skid plates.

DMOS Pro Shovels — Compact Delta Shovel and Mount

Cool pictures of active ATV and UTV driving in mud and water at Autumn

This shovel is small, but it packs a big punch, and it fits onto any rig and in any spot. Introducing The Compact Delta. 

The Delta collection is the next-generation E-tool, and the Compact is DMOS’s most comparable product in blade size to a traditional E-tool. Where a traditional E-tool fails is being too short to be useful. The Compact Delta is stronger and taller – with an overall height of 33 inches when its telescoping handle is fully extended. The Compact Delta has been rated at over 400 pounds of force with a 4 to 1 fulcrum. 

Pair it with the Compact Mount, DMOS’s first handle-grabber rack mount. Perfect for keeping your Com-pact Delta or any other handles up to 2 inches in diameter, such as axes or hatchets, mounted to your rig with our compact, rattle-free, and secure vehicle mount that’s lockable with a standard padlock. The mount is made from premium aluminum, and the backing plate comes with universal pre-drilled holes with fitment for most major roof and truck-bed rack models.

Bundle MSRP: $229 ($29 savings)

You needn’t worry that bringing your cooler will leave you stranded because the Dometic CFX3’s 3-stage battery protection actively monitors inbound power and will turn the cooler off if it senses low voltage. The Dometic CFX3 also has a USB port included in the control module for mobile electronics and camping gear. Combine your Dometic CFX3 with a Dometic PLB40 Battery for a fully untethered, solar-compatible solution.  

Plus, to create the most efficient coolers, the Dometic CFX3 series uses variable motor speed optimization 3.0, which automatically adjusts compressor speed for an optimal power-to-performance ratio. Dometic’s proprietary reciprocating powered cooler compressor is specifically designed for rugged off-road use. 

Connect your CFX3 55IM to the Dometic CFX3 powered cooler app with BlueTooth to monitor, and adjust the temperature of your cooler, track energy consumption and temperature history, and receive smart alerts if you happen to leave the lid open.

The tallest powered cooler from Dometic, the CFX3 55IM, is a good fit for a camping weekend for just about anyone or perfect for a couple or small family headed out on a longer trip. Its robust design and ExoFrame construction are built for tough outdoor use. With a lid that opens along its length, the CFX3 55IM is ideal for mounting in the back of an SUV with a slide, and it has a generous storage capacity of 53 L, which is approximately 83 cans.

Jackery — Generator 2000 Pro

From cooking a full-course meal with an electric stove deep in the woods to streaming your favorite show while relaxing with an ocean view, the Solar Generator 2000 Pro allows you to easily turn something you never thought possible into your next outdoor family tradition.

Inspired by and designed under the California sun where Jackery was founded, the new Solar Generator 2000 Pro combines a high-capacity portable power station, the Jackery Explorer 2000 Pro, with six advanced solar panels, the Jackery SolarSaga 200W, to deliver a fully equipped solution for energy capture, safety, and usability to power your ultimate outdoor experience.

New features of the Solar Generator 2000 Pro include the fastest green energy capture and charging. The Solar Generator 2000 Pro fully charges in just 2.5 hours of sunlight thanks to industry-leading conversion and energy transfer rates from six lightweight SolarSaga 200W solar panels.

Jackery has a built-in advanced Battery Management System (BMS) ™ with dual-monitoring chips to regulate and protect your battery life and your devices. This smart BMS monitors each individual cell and battery pack’s health to improve battery life.

Jackery’s first-rate lithium battery houses four temperature core detectors, which allow the temperature to be consistently and smoothly controlled when charging to deliver an ultra-safe and reliable experience. If the monitoring temperature exceeds the red line of safety, it will automatically shut off charging and signal the battery core to go into self-protection mode.

The first-ever newly designed foldable handle on the power station is unique to Jackery, making it convenient to pack and store wherever you go. With foldable magnetic features, the solar panels are flexible and easy to stand up. All six solar panels can be set up to receive 1200 watts of power in just 2 minutes.

Kovea — Supalite Titanium Stove

Weighing 2.1 ounces, the Kovea Supalite Titanium Stove is compact and light yet powerful. This top-mount canister stove features a 4-minute boiling time for 1 liter of water. Ultralight stoves are typically the domain of backpacking – since we typically have room for larger gear in our trucks, these ultralights aren’t really necessary. However, they aren’t without their benefits. 

Josh from Nomadica Outfitters shares why they choose to carry ultralight stoves alongside more traditional two-burners. “The primary reason I keep a pocket stove in my rig is for the worst-case scenario of having to abandon my truck and hike out. I usually keep a small bug-out bag with the bare essentials. It’s also nice to have an extra burner sometimes. I don’t always want to bring multiple large stoves, but at times the meals get a little more elaborate, and the Supalite doesn’t take up any space, so it’s an easy one to bring as a backup.” 

With its diminutive size and a price of under $60, it makes a nice little stocking stuffer for your favorite outdoors person. Keep an eye on  Nomadica Outfitters for upcoming holiday sales, including the Supalite Titanium Stove.

Active outdoor people who love to hike, camp, or just spend lots of time in the outdoors are obsessed with the Ledlenser MH5 headlamp. This headlamp has a bright, white beam that can throw off 400 lumens.

It features an Advanced Focus System that will quickly change the light from a broad flood to a sharply focused long-distance beam and includes a red-light option as well to help maintain one’s night vision. The MH5 light head can be easily removed from the headband and be used as a handheld light or clipped onto one’s backpack or jacket. 

Since the batteries are rechargeable, one can save both money and reduce their environmental impact by eliminating alkaline batteries. Recharging the battery is made simple with the magnetic charging system that is safe, quick, and easy to use.

Many hikers will pair the MH5 with the Ledlenser Powercase, a specific travel case that not only protects but, thanks to its internal magnetic charging port, can recharge the headlamp when stored in the case. A fully charged case can provide up to 3 charges making it get for longer hikes or camping trips, and it can also charge one’s phone if needed.

Backed by a 7-year warranty, the MH5 and Powercase make the perfect traveling companions.

Luno — Car Camping Sleeping Bundle

The first outdoor brand dedicated exclusively to car camping gear, Luno specializes in well-designed, built-to-last gear that quickly, efficiently, and temporarily turns ordinary cars into extraordinary adventure rigs. Case in point: the Car Camping Sleep Bundle. This bundle highlights Luno’s two most popular products — their award-winning inflatable Car Air Mattress and Fitted Mattress Sheet. Compatible with hundreds of SUVs and hatchbacks, the overland-ready air mattress is durable, easy to use, and extremely comfortable, while Luno’s sheets are soft, silky, and surprisingly technical. We’ll break down both below. 

Luno’s road trip-revolutionizing Car Air Mattress turns a conventional trunk into comfy, safe sleeping quarters in a matter of minutes. The mattress is compatible with over 1,800 vehicles, and searching for compatibility is easy: just click here, enter your make, model, and year, and Luno will bundle the correct-sized mattress and sheet for your vehicle. Every mattress is shaped to maximize trunk real estate, and, depending on the vehicle you’re shopping for, Luno will send out two “Base Extenders”—inflatable cubes that add 12 inches of length to the sleeping platform. This ingenious addition allows sleepers up to 6’2” to crash in comfort without needing to curl up like rollie pollies.

Regardless of the sizing specs, each Luno air mattress is crafted from a durable, 300-denier Oxford fabric that can withstand puppy paws and pine needles. The mattress also inflates expeditiously thanks to the included 12V air pump. One of our favorite aspects of the mattress is the partitioned, dual-chamber design: you can inflate mattress halves separately, a helpful feature if you’re traveling solo and want to haul gear with half of the trunk. Couples can also fine-tune the mattress halves’ firmness to each sleeper’s personal preferences. Once it’s time to turn your adventure rig back into a daily commuter, the mattress deflates in seconds and stashes in a compact carrying bag for painless, efficient storage.

When you think of technical overlanding gear, a fitted sheet probably isn’t the first thing that comes to mind. However, Luno’s Fitted Mattress Sheet just might be the most technical fitted sheet on the planet. The fabric, a blend of polyester and spandex, is soft against the skin, dries quickly, and helps regulate body temperatures. The design sports cutouts that make valve access effortless. Plus, cutout corners keep the sheet locked in place, even when you’re off-roading or exploring rutted-out 4×4 tracks.

All told, this bundle is the perfect gift for SUV and hatchback drivers who want an expedition-worthy rig one day and a commuter the next.

Holiday shopping for a vanlifer or truck owner? Check out Luno’s Front Cab Air Mattress Bundle, which transforms van front seats into an extra sleeping nook perfect for shorter adults, kids, or four-legged friends. Also, peep Luno’s recently launched Tacoma Air Mattress to turn a truck bed into an actual bed.

Tire Table

The Tire Table uses your vehicle or trailer tire as its main support, making it a stable and flat work surface regardless of the ground conditions. If you have a tire, you can have a stable table within seconds. It has an expanded metal surface allowing crumbs and spills to fall right through, and it will not be blown over by the wind. It can also be leveled on the tire even if your vehicle is not level.

The tables are made of aluminum or steel and come in two sizes. The standard size is 23″ W X 29″ L, and the large size is 28″ W x 33.5″ L. The tables will fit on tires from 25″ to 46″ tall. To accommodate the varying tire widths, the rear slider opens to 15.5″ on the standard and to 20″ on the large.

If weight is a concern, the standard aluminum model weighs 5.5 pounds, the large aluminum is 8 pounds, the standard steel is 13 pounds, and the large steel is 16 pounds. Both tables are powder coated to provide excellent durability.

When every inch of space in your rig matters, having a table that takes up very little space is important. The slim design is 1.5″ thick, and the legs are stored neatly on the table using push buttons to release them. It can also be strapped to your rack or even to the rear spare tire.

The strength of its welded construction is perfect for supporting grills, cooking supplies, portable power stations, solar panels, 7-gallon water jugs, coolers, or a toolbox. The solid construction supports up to 50 pounds for the standard table and 75 pounds for the large table.

Since there are no tools required, it easily installs within seconds. There is a slider that goes over the rear of the tire and two small legs that rest up against the front of the tire.

After the slider and legs engage the tire, you tighten up the side T-Bolts, and the table cantilevers off the tire. There is an adjustable, telescoping support leg underneath for added stability under heavy loads, but for your standard camp meal, it’s not even necessary, which makes it perfect for any terrain from sand to snow.

The Tire Tables are so versatile since they can be used on any tire, including a rear spare tire. The combination of its stability and strength allows you to use it for all of your overland needs. From a barbecue to a tool bench or a remote work location, the tire table will become one of your favorite overlanding and off-roading items.

From rough off-roading to hunting and farming, the Volcon line of vehicles will give you the edge you need to conquer any challenge.

The great thing about getting a portable power station is that you can use it wherever you want and when there isn’t any electricity. The ElecHive can provide a 2200W power output, and it packs a massive 2,500Wh of capacity, which means all your devices will stay powered for hours and hours, so you will never be stranded without power. ElecHive also has 1250W MPPT with fast-charging ports; you can always charge it in a very short time with solar panels or other charging methods.

The balance between weight and capacity has reached the point. The ElecHive has a 30% weight reduction compared to other brands’ power stations with similar capacity and weighs only 40 pounds. However, with its 2500WH capacity, you can charge a ZERO BREEZE Mark 2 air conditioner for 10-20 hours, a smartphone for 208 recharges, and a 4.5W lamp for 555 hours. There is so much more you can do with this little guy.

Seamless global messaging for smartphones is here! Meet ZOLEO, the only device that connects with your smartphone or tablet to provide messaging that follows you in and out of cell coverage, plus safety features you can count on worldwide. When you’re outside cell coverage, your ZOLEO device uses the Iridium satellite network to send or receive messages. Iridium is the only satellite network to cover everywhere on Earth, including landmasses, oceans, and Polar Regions. When within cell coverage, it delivers messages over cellular and Wi-Fi. Safety features include the ability to send SOS alerts, check-ins, receive weather forecasts, and even share your GPS location. The following features continue to set ZOLEO apart from the rest: 

Dedicated SMS Number and Email Address – ZOLEO assigned contact information never expires and allows contacts to initiate messaging with ZOLEO users, as opposed to waiting to receive a message from users to which they can reply.

Long Messages of Up To 950 Characters – Provides over five times the messaging capacity, resulting in less consumption of a plan’s monthly satellite message allotment when messaging app-to-app. 

Affordable Device Cost – ZOLEO is the only Iridium-connected satellite messenger on the market under $270 CAD, costing substantially less than competitive alternatives. 

Best Value Monthly Plans – ZOLEO offers the best value of all Iridium-based messaging plans with 170-210 more satellite messages amongst the mid-tier subscription and the most affordable unlimited monthly plan on the market.  

Rugged and Thoughtful Design – ZOLEO is more durable and holds higher water, dust, and shock protection ratings than most of the competition (IP68 and MIL-STD 810G). ZOLEO is also designed for easy fastening with its included carabiner and for easy mounting with our accessory lineup.  

Easy Device Sharing – At ZOLEO, we encourage device sharing, which is why we’ve made the process so easy. Whether a user is sharing a ZOLEO device with their team at work or family at home, each person can simply connect to the device on their smartphone, and they’re ready to go. This approach helps extend the value that ZOLEO users enjoy. Other devices are only intended to be used by a single user. 

Monthly plans range from $20 – $50 a month. All plans include unlimited check-in and SOS messaging with 24/7 emergency response monitoring, a dedicated ZOLEO SMS number and email address, and the flexibility to change, suspend or cancel your plan after the first three months should you ever need to. The optional Location Share+ add-on at $6/month enables you to automatically share your location with your check-in contacts at a user-selected interval. Your check-in recipients will be able to use the free ZOLEO app to view the current location and breadcrumb trail on a map.

Discounts: Activate your monthly plan by Jan. 31, 2022, to receive a free six-month Gaia GPS Premium Membership!
