Overlanding Gear

There is nothing quite like setting off on the road knowing that you are fully loaded and all your overlanding gear is on board. While we don’t engage is extreme overlanding many of the same issues can occur like punctures, dead batteries or getting bogged down out on the trail. We keep our gear selection to a minimum, only including what we need as essentials.

Below we have a breakdown [subject to constant change!] of our camping gear, tools and what we carry in the vehicle, smaller items and our photography setup. You can also find some close up reviews and more details of some of the gear we use on our Youtube channel

Full Dip Hyper Black


Essential gear for overlanding, we choose to carry some of the basics as our rig is pretty simple, gear that will get us [or others] out of a situation like dead batteries, getting bogged down or a flat tyre. Even a basic selection of tools is practical to have as well as providing peace of mind.
