Ust Lensatic Compass

One look at the Lensatic Compass and you might think, although it looks incredibly classy and well made, it’s a bit archaic. Consider being out on the trail with no service or, worse yet, with a dead smartphone battery. Suddenly that handsome, archaic tool is your best chance of getting home.

Velomacchi Speedway Tool / Med Pouch

Whether you’re on a bike or in your car, a full tool box isn’t exactly the most practical way to carry your essential tools. The Velomacchi Tool Pouch lets you keep your most used and critical sockets, ratchets or extra bolts and washers in a compact pouch under your seat, in the trunk or even in the glove box.

Leather Honey Leather Conditioner

When it comes to the car lover’s leather interior, you can bet they want it staying as supple and soft as possible throughout their ownership. Attending to all sorts of leather since 1968, Leather Honey is one of the best conditioners available — especially since it rings in under $20.

Native Union Belt Cable Universal

Instead of untying the knotted mess of charging cables stored in the glove box, just carry one: Native Union's Universal Charging Cable. The multi-tip charging cable is a USB to Micro USB base with USB Type C and iPhone tip converters.

The machined aluminum body not only looks good, it’s also lightweight and durable — essential qualities for any overlanding gear.

Anker Roav Viva Alexa-Enabled 2-Port USB Car Charger

Integrating Amazon’s Alexa into your life is incredibly easy these days. You probably have your home covered already, but plug the Roav Viva by Anker into your car and you have a two-port USB charger, in-car navigation, voice-activated dialing, music streaming and all the other voice assistant perks you’re used to.

Formula 1 Austin Flag Graphic Hoodie
