Equipment

This is a comprehensive list of all of our gear and is not meant to be an essentials list. We're very pleased with our gear choices and have used every piece of equipment during our trip. We believe that being prepared and having good gear can make a big difference in your overland adventure. We hope you find this list helpful and don't hesitate to ask any questions. We'll be glad to help.
We have created our own Amazon store neatly organized with all the gear and vehicle accessories we've used and tested throughout our journey and adventures. Check it out at amazon.com/shop/overlandtheamericas
We have also listed our favorite outdoor gear from the REI Co-Op website. Check it out below.
