Field Tested: LuminAID LED Lantern

It is not all that often I come across a product which I feel is truly innovative. It is even less common for me to find products that ring in at under twenty bucks. The LuminAID lamp ticks both boxes and even has a compelling humanitarian aid story behind it. The brainchild of Anna Stork and Andrea Sreshta, two young and ambitious entrepreneurs and philanthropists, the LuminAID was designed to meet the challenged needs of natural disaster victims. After evaluating… read more »

36 Hours of Adventure: A Weekend Trip in the PNW

This is not a bad thing as pads continue to improve on every measurable metric. This is equally true for pads from Big Agnes, and in particular… read more »

Overland Exotics

I could preface this piece with with any number of justifications as to why its necessary, but I'm going to call it what it is: This is an unapologetic celebration of unmitigated excess. Below is a collection of overland vehicles that push well beyond adequate and into the rarified air of exotic status.

Featured Vehicle: 2003 Nissan Xterra

Several weeks ago we posted a feature listing our picks for the top five overland options for 2015. Absent from the list, and causing a considerable amount of pushback, was the Nissan Xterra. As the author of that piece I concede that omitting that vehicle may have been an oversight. Over the last few years our staff at Overland International has owned a couple of Xterras and they have performed admirably. This gave us an opportunity to revisit this proven… read more »
