Travel smarter and lighter, with these new 4x4 aftermarket products from Nemo, Tradie Gear and Rhino-Rack.
Nemo Switchback Ultralight Sleeping Pad
Nemo’s latest lightweight mattress will ensure you get a warm and comfortable night’s sleep then next time you’re camping no matter the conditions. The Switchback Ultralight Sleeping Pad is a closed-cell foam sleeping pad with hexagonal nodes moulded with Nemo’s dual-density Axiomatic foam that’s claimed to conform to your body to ensure a balance of comfort and support.
The Switchback also features a metalised thermal film layer to efficiently reflect heat back to your body, as well as heat-trapping air space. Despite its generous 1830 x 510 x 20mm laid-out size, the Switchback’s folding panel design makes it compact and easy to store when not in use and, best of all, it weighs in at just 415g.

MSA 4x4 Tradie Gear Canvas Seat Organiser
Keeping all of your gear organised will be easy once you grab yourself a Tradie Gear Canvas Seat Organiser. With 12 individual pockets, the seat organiser provides countless storage possibilities including three larger pockets for items such as street directories, maps, order pads, invoice books and iPads.
The seat organiser is easy to fit and remove, and it can be attached to the front of the passenger seat for easy access when you’re driving solo. The seat organiser is manufactured from heavy duty 14oz canvas and it has an internal aluminium frame to prevent sagging.
Rhino-Rack Pioneer platform
Rhino-Rack has developed the next generation of its popular Pioneer platform, designed to make loading, carrying and securing gear easier thanks to updated features. The All New Pioneer incorporates accessory channels in the front and rear extrusions to enable accessory mounting such as kayak or ski carriers, while underside channels enable the fitment of accessories such as light bars.
New corner sections allow easy access to the internal channels of the front and rear extrusions for integrated wiring, and an under-bar measuring strip allows for fast installation. The All New Pioneer is manufactured from lightweight but strong and durable aluminium and fibreglass reinforced nylon components, and its black powder coated for corrosion resistance.
