OUTDOOR GEAR GUIDE
COOL OUTDOOR GEAR THAT YOU (WE) NEED
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.
