Recovery Kits & Components
Over many decades the 7P team has used all sorts of recovery equipment from the heights of the Himalaya to the depths of the Sahara and even our own backyard. Some of it works well and most of it doesn’t. Some of it lets you down when you’re tired, hungry and frustrated on a cold, rainy night when you couldn’t resist that “shortcut” home…
Many of our training clients asked what we recommend – so our team of Camel Trophy veterans, international adventurers, desert diehards and jungle junkies has assembled a kit that incorporates our favourite and trusted components that will work for you whether you’re camping locally for the weekend or off on a round-the-world expedition.
Unlike many other kits, everything in ours is fit for purpose and correctly rated, using standards from the lifting industry (the 4x4 / off-road / overland industry is lacking in these standards). This means you can trust your gear to be safe and not to let you down when you need it most.
The Overland Kit is a compact kit which provides essential equipment for smaller, less technical overland trips and camping weekends. It’s the ideal kit to keep in your vehicle so it’s there ready when you need it. This kit is designed for all “standard-sized” 4x4 Overland vehicles with a GVWR of up to 6,600 lbs (3,000 kg). It’s available to purchase online from Blue Ridge Overland Gear.
The Overland Kit (Heavy Duty) is the same compact kit as outlined above, but upgrades several pieces of equipment to make it suitable for vehicles up to a GVWR of 8,500 lbs (3,850 kg), or standard 4x4s towing trailers.
The Expedition Kit builds on the Overland Kit, and includes extra equipment for drivers who are on longer duration trips, or operating in more technical terrain. This kit will be available in 2018. An HD version will also be available.
Moto, ATV and UTV kits are coming in 2018.
We also had a lot of interest in providing recovery kits for very large vehicles with a GVWR of over 8,500 lbs to over 20,000 lbs (Sportsmobiles, EarthCruisers, EarthRoamers, TATRA 8x8s, etc.) While we don’t have an off the shelf kit available, we can provide you with a bespoke kit specifically tailored to your vehicle and driving/exploration needs. Drop us a note using the form on this page for more information. We call this the “Big Truck Kit”.
The Overland Kit is available from Blue Ridge Overland Gear, available in late November 2017. The Overland HD and Expedition Kit will be available in 2018.
