The final short release for the summer season, The Loch, is now available. The Loch combines elements from two of Mission Workshop’s best-selling shorts, the Stahl and Traverse, to create a short ideal for day-to-day use yet effortlessly transitions to any warm weather pursuit, whether ride, run, or swim.

The Loch makes the perfect travel short thanks to its lightweight construction, high stretch, and seven purpose-built pockets.

BioLite’s FirePit+ Wood & Charcoal Burning FirePit

This summer, I had the pleasure of trying BioLite’s FirePit+ Wood & Charcoal Burning FirePit. The warmth, smell, crackle, and feel of a wood campfire without any smoke was an amazing experience. With their patented combustion, I could create mesmerizing flames with full visibility on account of it having an X-Ray mesh body. Its folding legs make it easy to transport, and it even doubles as a charcoal grill with the included grate. The product itself is easy to clean and does a great job maintaining a fire. I received my order promptly, and I was even able to get an 1/8” smoke ring on the chicken I cooked on it! We are really loving it overall.

The RUX Bundles are a godsend for anyone who loves Overland and Sprinter Van Adventures. The RUX 70l is versatile, durable, and affordable.

The RUX Essentials Set is a great value at $393.

The collapsible 70L is weatherproof and easy to bring along. Connect it to the 25L RUX Bag for extra storage or use the RUX Pocket to keep your smaller items safe.
