    Overlanding Gear

    I'm starting this thread so I can keep track in one place things I find of interest and might want to buy.

    Focus on items to use in the jeep for camping…er…overlanding.

    Feel free to post up as well if you see something along those lines too.

    Please post up if you have used a product that has been posted, opinions (good or bad) are welcome. Well, except overlanders.

    This will be fun...I love this stuff.

    Even though you will bring water, you want one of these. http://www.katadyn.com/usen/katadyn-...tadyn-pocket-1

    Make your own, or just kick down for something like this: http://www.adventuremedicalkits.com/...rehensive.html

    A good durable axe. http://www.sogknives.com/base-camp-axe.html

    This is big and heavy, but it's great with kids because they can take a panel and use it to walk around. http://www.coleman.com/product/colem...0#.U_jbYdm9Kc0

    For the tent, I really like the Kelty Flashback lanterns. http://www.kelty.com/c-52-lighting.aspx

    Love the chair/lounger hammock. Think I need one for overlanding in my back yard!

    Along the lines of Sharkey's post, here's a lifestraw. Link to your favorite store.
    I think I may consider lifting my Jeep. Or not.

    Olram- I had the non-table version of the Springtail Molle rack. It was solid but, unless you have a security deck, it's a pita with the top off. I had to remove all of my Molle gear for around town then put it back in for the trail.

    That helinox stuff looks cool. The videos they have made me laugh though. You should never shake shock corded aluminum poles to get them to snap together. Doing so can break the cord and/or damage the ends of the aluminum.

    I like having fun without being too much of a dick weed. Thick skin- the one that can't be bought, but is earned by making mistakes throughout life. I earned my thick skin by 2nd grade, I am kind of an idiot

    Now back to thread at hand! It is a really good topic I truly have had interest in for as long as vehicles and camping have been around!

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
