The recently launched Dometic GO range attracted us at the bustling SEMA 2021 Dometic stall with its handsome, masculine functionality, clean lines, and premium quality design. We were fortunate enough to spend time with the Dometic Product Manager–Outdoor, Owen Mesdag, who took the time to show us the Dometic GO pre-production range. We did not have the opportunity to test the products prior to launch, except for the Compact Camp Chair, which we have used continuously over the last few months, from Seattle to Central Mexico. It is one of the best camping chairs we have ever used; lightweight, durable, comfortable, and attractive. If the rest of the range is as successful in its functionality and design intent, we are collectively in for a treat.
Made with lightweight materials and intelligent design for easy packing, the new collection equips the casual vehicle-based traveler or serious overlander for long days on the trail and nights around the campfire. Dometic GO reduces packing time and removes the obstacles involved with preparing to hit the road and take on an outdoor adventure. The collection is created for “Vehicle-Based Adventure,” where people use their daily cars as a base camp for outdoor activities; we would not hesitate to use this range on a round-the-world journey. Designed to fit into the back of a mid-size SUV or vehicle, this new collection will transform any vehicle into a base camp in minutes.
The Dometic GO 2022 Collection includes:
Hydration Water Jug: The stack-able jug holds 11 liters and features a standard 63mm Nalgene style opening which adds to the product’s versatility. Two jugs fit into a standard jerry can holder and provide an efficient way to store, transport, and use water around camp. Multiple dispensing options are built-in, including two openings for easy filling, dispensing, and cleaning.
Hydration Water Faucet: Provides running water on-site, dispensing with the ease of a single tap with accessories to connect to the Hydration jug. Simple one-touch operation with automatic shutoff for water conservation and an integrated LED light for nighttime/low-light use are welcome features. It also includes a puck for faucet placement and a magnetic base for using the faucet on other surfaces.
Compact Camp Chair: This lightweight, robust chair is designed for comfort and packability. Made from heavy-duty 600D fabric, aluminum, and beechwood armrests, the chair supports up to 280 pounds and includes a rear seat pocket and carrying sack.
Compact Camp Bench: A unique two-seater bench for any scenario—use it as a sofa table or footrest. It boasts a lightweight aluminum construction with heavy-duty 600D fabric. The bench can seat two adults (supports up to 300 pounds).
Compact Camp Table: One table to meet your every need, featuring three adjustable height options and hassle-free construction. Constructed from solid bamboo (surface) and aluminum (legs) with an integrated carrying handle, the table folds down to fit in half the width of your vehicle’s trunk.
Camp Blanket: Weatherproof and cozy, this dual-sided blanket is a go-anywhere, do-anything outdoor staple. It has a soft, padded top with rugged bottom and features durable, water-resistant fabric that is machine wash/dry.
Portable Gear Soft Storage: Soft, versatile protection for the grab-and-go essentials available in either 20- or 10-liter capacities, designed to be used in conjunction with the Hard Storage boxes. Constructed of water-resistant, rugged 840D TPU-coated polyester, it features a semi-rigid top and bottom with soft, collapsible sides. You can also convert it to a soft cooler with Dometic’s insulated insert (sold separately).
Hard Storage: Waterproof and dustproof, these cases store, stack, and organize essential outdoor gear, while protecting it from the elements. Integrated handles, tie-down points, lock holes, and secure easy-pull latches are some of its features, and they can be used with the Portable Gear Storage for additional solutions.
The Dometic GO range was displayed as a preview during the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market 2021 in Denver, Colorado. The Hydration jug and faucet received Gear Junkie’s coveted Best in Show Award, hinting at just how revolutionary this collection will be for the outdoor market.
