Sea to Summit introduces their Evac Dry Bag series. Keep your compressible gear dry- air squeezes out, water can’t get in. The Evac Dry Bag utilizes a bluesign-approved recycled 70D nylon waterproof main body fabric and a 70D eVent® waterproof but air-permeable base. You can push air out while still keeping your contents dry inside, resulting in more efficient space utilization.

  • Double-stitched and fully taped waterproof seams
  • Light-reflecting white interior for better visibility of gear
  • bluesign® APPROVED recycled 70D nylon main body fabric uses a PFC-free DWR finish

Keystone Outdoor Gear is proud to introduce TakTable®.  Whether weeks off-grid or a day at the beach, this portable table ensures outdoor comfort, making it feel like home!

TakTable® packs down to just 5” x 5” x 39” allowing it to be stowed anywhere, even the trunk of a Mini Cooper.  In just seconds it deploys into a 30” tall, 18” x 39” sturdy table suitable for cooking, dining, work, outdoor sports, or games.

It weighs just 11 pounds and supports over 270 thanks to the patent pending construction including an aluminum top, coated steel legs, and reinforced nylon injection molded plastic parts. The moving parts of this portable table, pinned with brass and steel, ensure a lifetime of reliable use, unlike some tables held together with bungee cords or plastic pins.

Custom stainless steel spring clips hold the base and top tightly together. The base quickly and easily glides between positions.  Specially designed basket feet are suitable for any surface like sand, rock, gravel, and pavement. You can use the incorporated foot holes with the included stakes to pin it to the ground for added security. Windy day?  The unique leg geometry creates turbulence in the wind, resulting in downforce that keeps the table put.  Weatherproof and virtually fireproof, it can take some extreme use and maintain its integrity.

Ozpig Portable Wood Fire Stove, kakadu, overland gear, overlanding,

The Ozpig Portable Wood Fire Stove is the perfect year-round outdoor entertainer. In the warmer months, take advantage of cooking over charcoal with the oven smoker, rotisserie, and chargrill attachments (sold separately). When the weather starts to cool down, it comes into its own as a safe fire for heat and entertainment. Enjoy the warmth and ambience of the fully contained wood fire which is safe and efficient so your firewood lasts longer. No need to hide this BBQ in the corner you’ll want it front and centre!

After completing the cooking, load up the fire, kick back, and relax with family and friends. The extension legs are designed for safety because they raise the fire and cooking surface. This prevents any materials from combusting beneath the unit. A solid bottom captures ash, preventing ground debris, while the mesh door and chimney spark arrestor curb embers and spot fires.
