Overlanding gear at REI

When the journey is the goal, a road trip turns into the ultimate adventure. And when you’re equipped with overlanding gear, not only can you camp off-grid, you can take the comforts of home – including a camping table, camping chair and even a camping coffee pot – along for the ride. And no need to leave the facilities behind, because camping toilets and camping showers make it easy to be self-sufficient no matter where you roam.
