If you are planning a shorter overland trip – perhaps just a few days – we recommend you check out our passive (non-powered) coolers. Equipped with extremely effective insulation, these portable ice chests will keep your groceries, fish, bait, wild game and other perishables fresh for several days – depending on use and weather conditions.
Enjoy longer-lasting ice on your next camping, fishing or overland trip – our Patrol ice chest keeps ice frozen for days. Its tough construction places no limits on adventure. Now available in the fresh Ocean blue color.

With 50 Watts of power, the MXT575 is the most powerful GMRS radio allowed by law. With this power, outdoor adventurers will be able to take their explorations to new levels. Not only does the MXT575 increase radio range, it also brings unbeatable voice clarity to ensure crisp and clear communication.
One of the MXT575’s most popular features is the Fully-Integrated Control Microphone. With all the controls on the microphone you can stash the radio unit away. The MXT575 brings power to adventure without crowding the dashboard.
With the addition of NOAA Weather Scan, the MXT575 gives outdoor adventurers peace of mind. This weather technology keeps overland adventurers alert in the chance severe weather rolls in unexpectedly, giving them the time they need to react.
The MXT575’s radio unit also includes a USB-C charging port for the fastest charge time on devices like walkie talkies, tablets, and cellphones. Other features include eight repeater channels, split tone repeater capabilities, and 142 privacy codes to minimize unwanted interactions. The MXT575 operates on both narrow and wide bands.

Tailgater Tire Table: A “Table” that attaches to your vehicle tire
The “Tire Table” uses your overland vehicle or off road trailer tire as its main support, making it a stable and flat work surface regardless of the ground conditions. It has an expanded metal surface allowing crumbs and spills to fall right through and will not be blown over by the wind. It can also be leveled on the tire even if your vehicle is not level.
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 under the table using push buttons to release them. It can also be strapped to your rack or even to the rear spare tire.
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 adventure needs. From a barbeque to a tool bench or a remote work location, the Tire Table will become one of your favorite overland and off-road items.

Completely reissued for the States using local ingredient and measurement conventions, it’s got all the charm of an Aussie outback larrikin without the need for pesky metric conversions on the fly or wondering where the heck you get coriander from. The food is indulgently good, too. With a healthy disdain for convention, you can enjoy Not Crap Nachos, Kentucky Fried Parmi (Harry’s take on a classic Aussie pub meal) or slow-cooked beef ribs, all cooked over an open flame. There’s even a handful of campfire-inspired cocktails and heaps of information on how to get the best from fire when cooking.
There have been some great camping and overlanding focussed cookbooks published over the years, but Fire To Fork is genuinely good camping food from a highly entertaining cook. If you don’t already subscribe to his YouTube channel, you’re missing out. If you want to eat better food at camp, nothing will help more than this book.
