What’s an NorthWest Passage (NWP) Expedition Kit?  It’s a collection of carefully vetted gear that you’ll need on your next adventure.  Each item has a specific purpose, each item has proven itself in the field, and each item will get you home at the end of the day.

We call these items “NorthWest Passage Expedition Kits” in tribute to the NorthWest Passage Adventure Route that BestRest developed, which runs across the northern borders of Washington and Idaho, then east into Montana where it ties into the northern terminus of the Continental Divide Route (CDR).  From there you can ride south to Mexico, off road.  To find out more click the NorthWest Passage tab in the left column.

Shawn Thomas came up with the idea of bundling products into NWP kits.  Shawn told us how much he relied on our gear when he’s training riders in the deserts of SoCal, or when he’s leading an expedition for the Dakar Rally in South America.  Shawn knows adventure gear, what works and what you need in the field.
Shawn carries all these items on his bike wherever he travels anywhere in the world.  He uses every piece of gear himself and he uses it to keep his clients moving down the trail. Every one of these items are on Shawn’s “must carry” list.  His endorsement doesn’t come lightly – we had to earn his approval by making adventure gear that’s better than anything else on the market.  Once you’ve tried it in the field we’re sure you’ll agree with Shawn.  While Shawn was in our shop, we shot an impromptu video that showcases these Expedition Kits.  You can watch it on YouTube by CLICKING HERE
