We come across all kinds of survival gear & gadgets, some great, some not so much.
Outside Online has coverage of this Kickstarter project, Parawallets. While they're final conclusion is that it's a 'silly' survival product, any time you can carry a basic fire starter + 50ft of paracord on your person, it's a good start to a basic kit. We're fans of any survival item that can be a daily-carry. Here's hoping the project gets funded!
Living Overland is great at covering basic needs of the outdoor explorer: food, gear, navigation, vehicle modifications, and other related articles.
This review of the not-for-the-faint-of-heart (or wallet) dp1 Quattro camera from Sigma is a perfct example: Great detailed information about a camera many of us can't afford, but will pine after for weeks and months.
While it's not for everyone, if you're looking for a lightweight camera with impeccable image quality, it's worth a look.
TCT Magazine just published a comprehensive comparison of the best griddles for your dollars for use when car camping (or 'overlanding' if you do that). They've included a variety of options so you're sure to find the perfect camping griddle.
For just $75, the Lodge Cast Iron griddle seems to be a winner for most uses!
