In the last Overland Trip Planning series video (click here to view), we focused on the areas within immediate reach of the driver. In this video we'll be looking at the next area of access for kitting your overland vehicle, these are the storage areas for gear that needs to be close — but not within immediate reach — of the driver and front passenger.
The key areas of storage we'll be looking at today are the backs of the seats and attic areas. What we have in these areas are still crucial enough that they need to be quickly accessed, but aren't critical.
For back of the seat storage, we have the BROG Seatback Panel with assorted pouches. This is a great place to store things like hand wipes, handheld radios, dog leashes, gloves, bug spray, sunscreen, lighting, and road flares. These are things you don't want to hunt for through a mountain of gear.
Our next area of storage we'll look at is the attic space. Your vehicle ceiling offers a really out-of-the-way, easy-to-access place to put things like extra gloves, jackets, and folded blankets.
So there you have it, all you really need within fairly quick reach on a basic trip. We hope that this will sharpen your focus and make your next adventure more organized, easier to enjoy, and ready for anything.
