All the new­est stuff you can’t live without.

GROW­ING UP, THERE WAS AL­WAYS THAT ONE KID WHO had all the coolest stuff. He got those rad new in­flat­able shoes circa 1989 that def­i­nitely made you bet­ter at B-ball. He got that bitchin BMX bike with the han­dle­bars that could spin around and still had rad cable brakes. He got those awe­some shirts that changed col­ors when the fab­ric got hot or cold. We were jeal­ous. Af­ter the last sev­eral Ul­ti­mate Ad­ven­tures it has be­come clear to us, the staff of 4WOR magazine, that the new ver­sion of the kids with all the coolest stuff are our friends and UA spon­sors at Of­froad Power Prod­ucts. When the UA starts, we’re thrash­ing to fin­ish a rig and gather some old camp­ing gear and clothes at the last minute that will hope­fully keep us alive. At the same time these guys al­ways have a bitchin rig and the coolest new­est out­door and camp­ing gear in­fused with Kevlar, rip-stop fab­ric, ti­ta­nium, and liq­uid-crys­tal awe­some­ness. We’re sleep­ing on the roof of our rock­crawl­ing S-10 gro­cery get­ter at the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, swat­ting bugs in a ratty old sleep­ing bag, while they are snug as a bug in a rug in their apart­ment-sized James Baroud rooftop mounted condo in the bed of the How­itzer.

Jeal­ousy doesn’t look good on us, so what do we do? Well, chances are we will still be thrash­ing at the last minute to hit the road for UA 2018 with the same old moldy sleep­ing bag, but un­til then we can at least have a look at all the cool gear that Of­froad Power Prod­ucts uses and sells. The best part is you can bet if their camp­ing and out­door gear doesn’t work, they won’t sell it, be­cause they ac­tu­ally use and test what they sell. That’s what we do for you when it comes to off-road parts and ve­hi­cles, so we thought we’d lean on them a lit­tle to find out what cool new out­door gear they’ve used and like. These cool items can be had at Of­froad Power Prod­ucts’ new web­site, of­froad­pow­er­prod­ucts. com/life­style.html. If you can’t find it there, we have also in­cluded web­site info for the man­u­fac­turer.
