All overlanders have their own way of doing things. From vehicle choice to camp chairs, through to stove fuel type and sleeping arrangements. Everyone does things differently, yet nobody can deny that a well thought out, well made product, tailored to the outdoor community deserves recognition.
A list of important items we carried on ourselves for the 8 month overland trip through remote parts of the former USSR. The gear got a lot of heavy use everyday and never faultered so comes recommended. We liked it so much, we have it all on us now here in Indonesia.

I managed to pick up a Denali Llama here in the UK for reasonable money considering it is new. As far as I know there are less than a dozen of these in the UK at present but their popularity is increasing due to the low pack size and possibilities for extended adventures.
At the Bristol & West Land Rover show this weekend I managed to finally get my hands on a Gransfors Bruks Axe (GBA). I have admired these for a number of years but could never really justify buying one. If you have seen these axes before you will know that GBA have been hand crafting axes for over 100 years and are some of the worlds finest.
