Field Tested: EVOC CP 35L Camera Pack

Like many photographers, I demand much of a camera pack. It not only needs to be capable of protectively portaging my equipment, it needs to also accommodate the various other things I use in the backcountry. It seems like a reasonable ask, but only a handful of packs have extra storage as part of the design. I also have to be able to access my cameras and equipment quickly without much effort. Not to add to my lofty demands, all-day… read more »

Shelter from the Storm: How to Select a Ground Tent

There is something uniquely gratifying about the sanctuary of a tent. It’s the satisfaction of knowing that torrential rain, crushing snow, gale force winds, and swarms of bugs can be so effectively held at bay with fabric and poles.

Off-Road Auto News: The Rumor Roundup

The last few years have been some of the more interesting in terms of automotive news relevant to the overland traveler. Concepts have been teased, production models axed from production, and the legendary Land Rover Defender was ceremoniously laid to rest just last week. Some say these are sad times with the average 4x4 succumbing to the urbanization of the world. Articulation and brawn are now less important than how easily a truck can be parallel parked, or how many… read more »

We Pay Tribute to the Land Rover Defender on Its Final Day of Production

Today, after nearly 70 years, the legendary Defender will finally end production. There are few moments within the automotive timeline to weigh so heavy as this one. Perhaps the only other day to rivaled its significance was in 1948 when the first Land Rover Series I rolled off the line and into the annals of history. It would be an epic undertaking to chronicle all that has been achieved by the iconic 4x4 from Solihull. It has served as a farm… read more »
