WOODGAITER

Wood carrier and overland utility mat.

Whether you bring it, buy it, or find it, pack and protect your wood!

A campfire can be essential to enjoying the great outdoors, but let’s face it, packing firewood can be a hassle, and it always makes a mess.  The WoodGaiterTM holds the equivalent of two typical pre-packaged bundles of wood, keeping the contents secure and the mess contained. 

The unique “gaiter design” adjusts for varying volumes of wood and accommodates for longer pieces of collected firewood.  This design also accomplishes a fine balance of allowing moisture to escape and at the same time protecting your wood from the elements if carried outside the vehicle or spilling of debris if carried inside a vehicle.

What’s an “overland utility mat” you ask?  While the vision for the WoodGaiterTM was to develop a solution for the problem of hauling firewood for your outdoor adventures, during the course of development we discovered several other great uses for this unique product, making it an even more valuable piece of gear.  We can’t wait to see all the great uses you discover, making this one of your most essential tools.

      • Handmade in the USA, the WoodGaiterTM is engineered to be the superior wood carrying solution: 

        1. Carried inside your vehicle, it contains the mess
        2. Strapped to your roof rack, you have multiple tie-down options
        3. Loaded in your truck bed, it’s easily secured
        4. No matter how you carry it, your vehicle and your wood are protected
        5. Included kindling bag attaches to the inside of the WoodGaiterTM, and is also a convenient storage bag for the WoodGaiterTM when not in use
        6. Materials were researched, selected, and tested to produce very high durability
        7. Designed to be long-lasting, not land-fill

         

        Aside from mooching off your friend, there are three ways you’re going to get fuel for your campfire:

        1. Bring it– if you’re pulling from your own woodpile, you’ll need to be able to wrap it, carry it, secure it.  Trash bags, tarps, duffel bags are the typical options and all lack durability, convenience, and ease of tying down…and popular tire mounted accessory bags won’t hold up to the weight and abrasion of firewood.  Besides, you need that bag for trash (pack it in, pack it out).
        2. Buy it– some store-bought wood comes in plastic bags, but generally it’s just wrapped in plastic with a mess of debris and no way to secure the wood whether inside or outside the vehicle.
        3. Find it – unless wood is conveniently lying around your immediate campsite, you generally need to collect it as you find it.  “Found firewood” was a key design element of the WoodGaiterTM. It accommodates random pieces of wood of varying sizes that you may find trailside or in the vicinity of camp, allowing for that collected firewood to extend out the ends.  You can then wrap the wood to protect your vehicle, and have suitable tie down points so that you can secure it while continuing your travels.  Or, if you’re on foot, use it as a tote to carry wood back to camp.

         
        Wet firewood is a problem, and we have the solution.  Both seasoned and found firewood can be moist or damp from recent weather.  The WoodGaiterTM is designed to effectively keep out added moisture while also allowing for airflow.

         
        Not just for firewood, it’s a multi-functional resource:

        1. Maintenance and recovery work mat – keep your butt and tools out of the dirt
        2. Pet bed / kid’s playmat – keep your precious sidekicks and their toys out of the sand, dirt, mud, pricklies and pests
        3. Tent entry mat – kick your shoes off and keep some mess out of your tent
        4. Shower floor – with a slight slope and some flip-flops, you’re no longer standing in the mud to take a shower in the field
        5. Injury patient workspace – while we hope you never have the need, the WoodGaiterTM provides an expedient surface to attend to an injured traveler
