Overlanding Gift: EXPED MegaMat Inflatable Sleeping Pad

For any kind of car camper or off-road overland enthusiasts, a proper and comfortable sleeping pad makes all the difference. The EXPED MegaMat Duo 10 checks all of the boxes and more. I have been extensively testing out this version, which sleeps two with no bothers. It works for me and my needs which includes very cold nights in the mountains and chilly winter adventures in the desert.

The 10-centimeter tall 3-D vertical sidewalls get me far enough off the ground, while the multiple layers of insulation provide much warmth and comfort. Exped has a whole ecosystem of supporting products that make camping more enjoyable. They also have pads with tapered ends to fit narrow truck spaces. The best part is that these pads automatically inflate and deflate. At almost $350, you can gift someone the added comfort from the EXPED MegaMat Duo 10 Sleeping Pad.

EXPED MegaMat Duo 10 Sleeping Pad Main Features:

MegaMat Duo 10 ($349.95)

  • Exped’s double-wide duo version comfortably sleeps two people
  • 4-inches of Oeko-Tex 100 certified, open-cell polyurethane foam for support and warmth
  • Stretch tricot surface for maximum comfort
  • Air-core-channeled foam insulation reduces weight, bulk
  • Separate inflation/deflation FlatValves, extra-large deflation valve
  • 3-D vertical sidewalls for maximum sleeping surface
  • Mini Pump for top-off inflation

Overlanding Gift: PURGGO All-Natural Car Air Eco-Purifier & Freshener

If sleeping in the vehicle is the thing, it might be windows down while out on the trail, but what about when it is lights out? I found the PURGGO Car Air Purifier & Freshener to be the perfect solution and one that would make a great gift.

There is no power button and zero electronics involved since the PURGGO Car Air Purifier is made with pure natural bamboo charcoal. This is the filtering element that absorbs & eliminates odor instead of masking it. It is also all-natural, fragrance- & allergen-free, non-toxic, and 100% asthma and allergy-friendly.

I like how it does not require any maintenance besides a few hours of sunlight every 30 days or so. It is that simple! PURGGO is available in the colors Lava Grey, and Classic Beige. For the affordable price tag between $20 and $30, it is the gift that will keep on giving.

PURGGO Car Air Purifier Main Features:

  • It contains pure natural bamboo charcoal.
  • Absorbs and eliminates odor instead of just masking it.
  • Lasts for 365+ days and works 24/7 passively.
  • Fragrance- and allergen-free, all-natural and non-toxic.
  • Uses one of the most renewable natural resources in the world.

Overlanding Gift: Trelino Evo M Portable Composting Toilet

If you have gotten this far into the Off Road Xtreme Ultimate Holiday Gift Guide, we want to crown you the king of gift-giving. For that, you will need a throne. We have identified the Trelino Evo M Portable Composting Toilet as a suitable seat for royal overland-style deposits.

Off Road Xtreme Ultimate Holiday Gift Guide: Overlanding Must Haves

The Trelino Evo M is sized up and lightweight to easily haul around in any vehicle. This sounds like a wild gift to give someone but as an off-roader, I recognize that this does have its benefits. One obvious point to consider is that it might be easier to get the misses to agree to some fun off-grid adventures. For $450 it is a hefty log to pinch but it’s worth spending to enjoy some wild all-natural dignity.

Trelino Evo M Portable Toilet Main Features:

  • Exterior body for rugged durability
  • Seat with urine separator
  • Soft-close lid attached with hinges
  • Holds up to 1.3 gallons in urine canister
