Safety First

The number one consideration when you're traveling either 20 miles from home or 2000 is the safety of you and your loved ones. The great thing about being prepared for emergencies both big and small is that it's very affordable - a no brainer.

From the vehicle to the wilderness, the Chinook Emergency First Aid Kit (EFAK) [$136.95] has the perfect balance of supplies to prepare you for everything from severe trauma to everyday bumps and scrapes in a compact, lightweight medical kit.

Communication is another key component for maintaining that all important peace of mind out on the trails. SPOT has you covered with the highly durable and effective SPOT Gen4 Satellite Messenger.

At just $115.99 (yearly satellite communication subscription not included), this comms powerhouse gives you a critical, life-saving line of communication when you travel beyond the boundaries of reliable cellular service. SPOT Gen4 lets family, friends, and colleagues know you are OK, or if the unexpected should happen, sends your GPS location to emergency responders all with the push of a button. Add this rugged, pocket-sized device to your essential gear and stay connected wherever you play or work.

This rugged and easy to operate radio allows you to tune in to all 40 CB radio channels anywhere. Get up-to-date information on road conditions and NOAA weather alerts along with crystal-clear communication with the Soundtracker noise reduction system—all in a tough, portable design.

Recovery Tools

Overlanders think a lot about getting stuck, in fact, I would argue that many of us relish the opportunity. Vehicle recovery is one of those facts of remote travel that seems scary in the abstract, but when you're in the thick of it usually turns out to be really, really fun. You can give the gift of making those recoveries safer and more effective.

Every winch set up needs a set of rugged and dependable shackles. Warn makes some of the toughest winching and recovery tools in the business, and their Epic Forged Shackles are no exception [$35.99]. Boasting a threaded pin to allow for easy removal and constructed from forged steel and protected with an e-coat finish to resist wear and abrasion, these top-notch shackles come in various sizes to suit your needs, and come with a limited lifetime warranty. Order two to complete a full set.

Sometimes a pull just isn't enough. In deep sand, mud, and especially snowy conditions, a shovel is indispensable. DMOS has some pretty innovative takes on this age-old tool, and the Stealth model, while just a little over our $150 threshold, will last your adventurer a lifetime [$189.00]

The award winning Stealth may be the most versatile shovel tool ever. It's primary use is as a portable car shovel for people who travel in snow country, or venture out in dirt or sand. It is full-sized and outperforms any avalanche shovel or cheap plastic shovel on the market. The Stealth is easy to stow in your vehicle, in your pack, or can be mounted to many automotive rack systems. Plus, it just looks extremely cool.

Don't Be Left Standing

Traveling with chairs has always been a difficult task due to their size. Comfort is always the first to go when challenged with an over-packed vehicle. Don't be left standing - you wont need much room to bring along the Front Runner Expander Chair [$76.00]. This chair is designed with a new space-saving patent pending technology. This innovative technology allows this full-sized chair to compact to 1/16th its size! The Front Runner Expander is easily stored in limited space because it folds down to the size of a laptop case. The Expander is:
  • Comfortable and extremely portable.
  • Folds in 3 easy steps.
  • Does not sink into sand.
  • Comfortable table height.
  • Constructed of rugged steel.

In the Kitchen

The best part of any day spent adventuring might just be when you break out the stove on a frosty morning to brew up that first pot of coffee. A sunrise over a distant peak, some mist on a river, and just you and the wilderness that surrounds you. When you're soloing, the Planetary Designs Double Shot Personal French Press [$34.99] is the perfect way to get your morning jolt.

The Double Shot has come a long way over the years, and in this newest release, Planetary Designs kept the essentials, like the trusty, dual-purpose drink & press lid, and ever popular built-in storage container. However, they added some killer new features - namely, a layer of vacuum insulation to keep your brew hot for hours on the trail or at work, a virtually indestructible laser-welded handle with carabiner clip, and a grip-worthy textured paint finish with outdoor inspired graphics to embolden you to get out there!

Let us praise the humble fork. We don't often think too hard about our eating utensils, but quality flatware that performs at a high level in the back of beyond makes a huge difference in our overlanding kitchens. The MSR Alpine Tool Fork [$9.95] brings even more utility to the table (so to speak). 

The Alpine Tool Fork is make from rugged stainless steel and has an integrated jet-and-cable tool for maintaining your MSR liquid-fuel stoves in the field. The tools integrated into the handle can also come in handy for other on-trail repairs beyond the kitchen. Lightweight and affordable, this fork makes a great stocking stuffer.
