WE take a closer look at three new products on the market: Narva’s Colt 1000 LED spotlight, a Rhino-Rack Backbone system for the Nissan Navara, and Rubicon tent rack and Hutch roof-top tent combo.
NARVA COLT 1000 LED SPOTLIGHT
FIND your way back to your tent with this heavy duty handheld spotlight by Narva. Featuring six high-powered LEDs (producing 2500 raw lumens), the spotlight has a spot beam range of up to 244 metres. Enclosed in a heavy duty casing, the unit is fully sealed and waterproof (IP66 rating). Other features include a 5700K light output, a foldaway hook and an ergonomically designed handle. The Colt 1000 is powered by a rechargeable, removable 7.4V lithium battery, and a 240V AC charger is included.
RUBICON TENT RACK + HUTCH ROOFTOP TENT
Combine a Rubicon tent rack with a Hutch tent and you’ll be catching zeds as soon as you get to camp. One person can easily set up and pack down the tent in five minutes, and it can be erected on any terrain four adjustable legs and feet. It is rear-mounted, freeing up the roof racks and reducing wind resistance – plus, it can be easily dismounted when left at home. The tent is made from a high-quality, rip-stop poly-canvas that is breathable, waterproof, mould and mildew resistant, with UV protection.
RRP: $1799 (Rubicon hitch tent rack); $1599-$1899 (Hutch roof-top tent)
RHINO-RACK BACKBONE FOR NAVARA
Rhino-Rack has introduced the Nissan Navara NP300 Dual Cab Backbone system. The Backbone system is constructed from non-corrosive stainless steel, so it’ll survive long stints beneath the harsh Aussie sun. The system is connected to the roof of the Navara via three bases on each side, evenly distributing the weight of the gear loaded on top. The Backbone system pairs perfectly with Rhino-Rack’s Pioneer platform, allowing the consumer to easily connect and carry existing Rhino-Rack accessories, including add-ons such as kayak carriers and spare tyres.
RRP: From $496 (Rhino-Rack Nissan Navara NP300 Dual Cab Backbone); $1595 (Rhino-Rack Backbone and Pioneer Package)
