Field Tested: FlexoPower Atacama 79 Watt Panel

"They're a great alternative to dual batteries" Werner explained, "and they'll keep a fridge running for days." I'm sure I looked slightly strange at that moment, eyebrows raised with a mixed look of skepticism and surprise, but this is not what I had expected a representative of Flexopower to say. You see usually manufacturers are positive when presenting us with their products, but they are always careful not to promise too much. Werner on the other hand seemed very confident, and he… read more »

ARB Releases Two Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems

Every driver, no matter what they drive, knows proper tire pressure is essential. It ensures maximum efficiency, performance, and prolongs tire life. More importantly, it’s paramount for the safe operation of any vehicle. For the driver venturing into the sticks, airing down is a must, but at those lower reaches of PSI, there isn’t much margin for error. Knowing exactly how much air is at all four corners, in real time, is important. Most modern vehicles have some type of… read more »

National Park Vandals Strike Again

People are terrible. Not all of them obviously, but for the people who recently vandalized the iconic Racetrack Playa in Death Valley National Park, the word terrible doesn’t do them justice.

As we’ve mentioned before in previous footwear reviews like the roundup we compiled in the 2013 Fall issue of Overland Journal, boot and shoe choice varies wildly from one traveler to the next. I tend to need something that not… read more »

Capetown to Cairo: An Airstream Caravan Takes On Africa

Although many have come to recognize the Airstream as an icon for the American nomad, few realize just how far these trailers have reached beyond our borders. Back in the 1950's the company's founder, Wally Byam, was on a mission to inspire fellow trailerites to see the world, and he began by planning a trip from Texas to Nicaragua along the Pan-American highway. Although it began as a small group of friends, an article by the Los Angeles Times had soon… read more »

Trail Tested: Kuat NV 2.0 with Rak Attach Swing-Out Mount

Last month we published one of my biggest review projects of the year, a comprehensive roundup of hitch racks. At the exact time I was wrapping up the testing phase, Küat released their updated version of their venerable NV rack called, not surprisingly, the NV 2.0. I finally got my paws on that new product and although I’ve only had a month to evaluate it, I have to admit I’m quite impressed. I first started using the original NV rack… read more »
