FOOD and shelter are two essentials when venturing to a remote part of the country. Not only does the equipment need to be reliable and robust, it’s handy if it doesn’t take up much space in or above your 4x4.
Check out this stove and shelter that have just hit aftermarket catalogues.
Primus Kinjia stove
You don’t have to sacrifice function for a lighter weight and more compact size with the Primus Kinjia. The Kinjia weighs in at 4kg and measures 295mm wide, 475mm deep and is only 78mm in height, making it ideal for both lightweight fanatics and those who have limited cargo space in their rig.
This stove includes two burners and runs off canister gas stoves (100g, 230g and 450g), which are connected via a flexible gas hose and, thanks to their size, help keep the whole camp cooking package smaller than average without sacrificing burner efficiency. The drip tray and grids can be easily removed for cleaning and maintenance and the stove is built to last.
The compact size doesn’t mean you have to shrink your pots and pans, either; a regular pot and pan fit side-by-side on the stove. Get cooking!

BlackWolf Sombra Shelter
The Sombra Shelter’s heavy-duty canopy features a UPF 50+ rating, and is designed to offer plenty of shade and sun protection when camping. The unique design (available in two sizes) offers ample shade (up to 20 square metres in the case of the 450 model) and some rain protection without sacrificing ventilation (you can purchase an additional side panel as well).
The tough 150-denier polyester fabric will last years and is held in shape via BlackWolf’s custom 19mm Tuff steel poles, which offer high durability. Setting up is quick and it packs down nice and compact.
RRP: $400 (Sombra Shelter 300); $500 (Sombra Shelter 450)
