MKII Safety Orange Vehicle Recovery Board

Overlanders trust Maxtrax recovery boards to extricate themselves from mud and sand. The same principles apply to snow. 

Aluminum Sport Utility Shovel

The best tool for shoveling snow? A shovel. This one weighs only 1.3 lbs and collapses into three pieces for easy storage.

Men's Vintage Cold Snap Insulated Work Glove

Keeping your hands warm and dry when removing snow is imperative. These Carhartt gloves use a "Storm Defender" textile that's waterproof while still being breathable, allowing sweat to escape.

E-Z Deflator Kit

If you really get desperate and don't have other tools, airing down your tires can increase your contact patch and help you find traction.
