We tend to think of our Polaris General 1000s and XP 1000s in the context of either “work” or “play,” but there’s another life-affirming application that works in a bit of both - camping and overlanding. Whether you enjoy going through all the trappings of true “roughing it” (i.e., intentionally doing things the harder way) or if you just want to explore a new place without too much hassle, we’ve got both types of campers covered with a well-vetted selection of Polaris Ranger General overlanding and camping accessories from some of the best brands in the industry. We want you to feel just as capable leaving on a spur-of-the-moment weekend getaway as you do planning a weeks-long excursion to uncharted territory. In order to cover that spread of Polaris General 1000 camping fire pits, radios, lights, storage solutions, and more while maintaining our usual standards of durability and affordability, we had to do some serious digging. But alas, Polaris General camping and overlanding accessories are here, and a well-received debut it has been. Let’s take a peek through this category, shall we?
Survival before convenience is our mantra when it comes to establishing your set of must-have overlanding accessories before setting out in your Polaris Ranger general, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have both. For example, space-saving gear like our collapsible fire pit by Rough Country gives you the ability to park, set up, and have a fire going in minutes. Simply unfold the unit with no tools required, get your fire going, and you’ve got warmth and the ability to cook food in one shot - and all without taking up half of your interior. The powder-coated steel construction and high heat tolerance (1000 degrees Fahrenheit) ensure you don’t have to worry about your gear flaking out on you when you need it most. We wanted to start with this example because it embodies all the major features that we demand of products that make the cut for this category: high utility and durability, space-consciousness, and affordability. If we wouldn’t trust the item to keep us safe while on adventures to parts unknown, then there’s no way we’re going to offer it to you. And so it goes with everything else in this Polaris Ranger General camping accessories selection.
Another highly important feature for camping and overlanding safety that we’d like to highlight, especially since it is often overlooked, is lighting. That flimsy keychain light may do for a few feet, but if you really want the freedom to explore on foot while on your camping or overlanding trip, you’re definitely going to need something a little more prominent and reliable. This is where our Polaris Ranger General 1000, XP 1000, 4 1000, and 4 XP 1000 camp locator lights by Pyramid Whips come in. Admittedly, we definitely dipped our toes into the “yuppy camper” pond on this one, but we just couldn’t help it because of how much utility and safety they provide on top of all the cool bells and whistles. First and foremost, Bluetooth connectivity allows you to control the more than 200 motion functions all from your phone, including strobe, several static settings, and many more. This will allow you to venture out much farther without having to deal with the anxiety of not finding your way back to camp in low visibility. We can’t speak for what the local flora and fauna (be careful out there), but in regards to keeping your forward base shored up for anything, Everything Polaris Ranger has your back.
Finally, we want to emphasize that this is your opportunity to really make your Polaris Ranger General side by side your own, so it’s a great idea to do some planning before you get to browsing. Figure out where you want to go, what the conditions are like there, and how those will affect your basic survival needs. We say this because, unless you have this framework in mind, it’s very easy to fall in love with most of these accessories and go a bit crazy. Safety is always priority one, but fun is right up there as well. Happy travels and be safe on the trail, or completely off the trail - the choice is yours!
