Part of the at­trac­tion of head­ing out 4WDing is vis­it­ing the re­mote ar­eas that many other peo­ple do not get to travel to. And while “rough­ing it”might has some ap­peal, there are times when a bit of com­fort can make all the dif­fer­ence. Whether you’re planning on get­ting lost for a cou­ple of days, or want to head into the less pop­u­lated parts of the coun­try, you’ll need some warm and con­ve­nient shel­ter. ARB’s Tour­ing range in­cor­po­rates the Kakadu and Simp­son III rooftop tents, a ve­hi­cle mounted awning and out­door shel­ter, along with a va­ri­ety of other op­tional ac­ces­sories to cater for all of your camp­ing needs. Un­fold­ing in min­utes, a rooftop tent pro­vides sleep­ing quar­ters off the ground, pro­tected from the ele­ments. Spa­cious and com­fort­able, all bed­ding can re­main inside the tent dur­ing the jour­ney, free­ing up vi­tal stor­age space in the ve­hi­cle, and al­low­ing the tent to be quickly and eas­ily packed away. ARB re­tractable awnings are easy to mount and op­er­ate, and fit on to the side of a roof rack, con­ve­niently stored for im­me­di­ate use on ar­rival. Specif­i­cally de­signed for harsh Out­back con­di­tions, the awnings are rugged but light­weight, and pro­vide fast and con­ve­nient pro­tec­tion from the ele­ments. To com­ple­ment ARB Tour­ing awnings, a range of easy to as­sem­ble awning ac­ces­sories are avail­able to keep you cool, dry, com­fort­able and pest free while you en­joy your sur­round­ings. The awning room with floor is de­signed to func­tion as a fully en­closed room to pro­vide ad­di­tional weather pro­tec­tion and pri­vacy. An­other ap­proach is the ARB wind breaks. De­signed to an­gle out from ARB Tour­ing awnings, wind breaks of­fer ad­di­tional pro­tec­tion from the rain and with a UVP50+ rat­ing also pro­vides ex­tra shade and sun pro­tec­tion. And then there’s the vi­tal ARB mos­quito net, which is man­u­fac­tured from 48gsm midge proof mesh and is avail­able for both the 2000 and 2500 model ARB Tour­ing awnings. This up­dated ver­sion of the orig­i­nal mos­quito net room is now larger and in­cludes a mud/ storm flap to re­duce grass seeds etc from col­lect­ing in the lower sec­tion of the mesh. How­ever, if you like to get closer to na­ture there’s the ARB SkyDome Swag, which in­cor­po­rates the lat­est in swag de­sign and com­fort, and in­cludes both sin­gle and dou­ble con­fig­u­ra­tions. Of course, you’ll need a light at night, and the ARB recharge­able LED Ad­ven­ture Light of­fers five hours of run time, and can be charged via the in­cluded 12V DC charge lead or 240V AC adap­tor. A high ca­pac­ity 7.4V/ 2200mAh lithium bat­tery en­sures an ex­ten­sive ser­vice life. Rated to 120kg, the ARB Air Locker camp­ing chair has a host of fea­tures, in­clud­ing a padded seat and back­rest, con­ve­nient drink holder pouch, side pocket with Vel­cro flap for your keys, wal­let or other small items, and a mesh mag­a­zine pocket on the rear of the back­rest. Stylish in de­sign, ARB’s Storm­proof Bags come in two sizes and fea­ture PU coated Ox­ford weave fab­ric and rub­berised con­struc­tion, with all seams heat sealed and taped to en­sure high wa­ter re­sis­tance. In­su­lated to keep your food and drinks cool on warmer days, the ARB Cooler Bag in­cor­po­rates strong carry straps with a padded han­dle, ex­ter­nal elas­tic strap for pack­ing ad­di­tional items, an ex­ter­nal zip and Vel­cro pock­ets for smaller items such as keys, wal­let and phone. Adding to ARB’s range of cargo gear prod­ucts, the ARB toi­letries bag keeps per­sonal hy­giene prod­ucts to­gether in a com­pact man­ner. The ARB por­ta­ble fridge freezer was de­vel­oped in Aus­tralia to han­dle ex­treme con­di­tions and is avail­able in 35, 47, 60 and 78-litre ca­pac­i­ties, all backed by a com­pre­hen­sive three-year war­ranty.
