Overlanding Essentials

There's something about Overlanding that makes outdoor enthusiasts go wild. The thought of taking a vehicle off the beaten path and into the great unknown is incredibly appealing, and there's a whole world out there waiting to be explored. If you're new to Overlanding, or even if you've been at it for a while, it can be tough to know where to start when gearing up for an adventure. That's why we're here to help! In this blog post, we'll outline some of the essential Overlanding gear from Rough Country that will help make your next outdoor adventure a success.

Camp Chair 

 If you're going to spend the night out in the wild, you might as well bring some comfort with you. One of the simplest items you can invest in is an outdoor chair. Rough Country's Camp Chair is lightweight and easy to carry, with sturdy aluminum construction. The fabric is water-repelling, so you don't have to worry about damp grounds or sudden storms. You can sit back and enjoy the night sky while keeping your bum off the hard, cold ground.

Cooler/Portable Fridge

When you're Overlanding, the last thing you want to worry about is your food going bad or your drinks getting warm. That's why it's crucial to have a cooler or portable fridge that can keep everything cold no matter what conditions you're facing. Rough Country offers several options, including a durable and lightweight 20-quart cooler with leakproof sealing gaskets to lock in the cold. If you plan on a longer trip, you may want to skip the ice and choose from our 45- or 50-Liter portable fridge/freezer. Both come with a DC power cord to allow you to plug right into your vehicle. Whether you're hitting the trail for a short weekend getaway or embarking on an epic cross-country trip, one of these devices will help ensure that you always have access to chilled refreshments.

Collapsible Fire Pit

A proper campfire can be key to any successful Overlanding trip. While digging out a fire pit is an option, Rough Country offers a better way with our transportable and versatile fire pit. Developed with outdoor enthusiasts in mind, our fire pit is light enough to carry with you wherever you go, and it sets up in seconds so you can enjoy a cozy campfire in no time. In addition, you can easily go from fire pit to outdoor grill by adding our Fire Pit Grill Grate. So you can grill your meal, roast marshmallows, or keep warm during chilly evenings in the great outdoors. And the beautiful cutout design is perfect for those evenings when you want to sit back, relax, and watch the night sky

Roof Top Tent and Tent Annex

After you've spent the day roaming the land, you will look forward to getting a restful night's sleep. Our Roof Top Tent allows you to sleep above it all, away from dampness and bugs on the ground. You will only be inches away from your vehicle and any gear you need during the night. You can even add our Tent Annex for extra space and privacy. The best part is that when it is time to leave, stow everything back in its place—then drive to your next adventure!

Overlanding can be as simple or as hardcore as you want it to be, and while our list might not be the most extensive ever, we think it's a good place to start. So, whether you're a seasoned pro or just getting started, Rough Country is definitely worth a look for your outdoor essentials.
