We really didn't have any idea that sharing our personal adventure gear deal finds would turn out this way.
What we are usually focused on these days around Story Moto ADV-ville is creating adventure motorcycle riding content for our website & social media and researching gear possibilities for our travels. One day we decided that maybe they were one in the same...at least worth a stab for a post you know. As it turns out that assumption was correct. That was late January of this year.
A lot hasn't happened since then...
We've got a new round of deals below but first here is a little more on the subject if you care to know...
The first post we put up on the topic was a complete ADV starter kit-- everything but a motorcycle, helmet and boots-- for $568. (We have since addressed the helmet and boots as well as offered some research on affordable gear options for women ) The post exploded. I think it did so because... well...thats... everything... tank bag, panniers, tail bag, jacket, pants, gloves, tent, sleep pad, sleep bag, stove, mess kit, camp knife, fire starter, first aid, water filtration & cargo net.
The $568 list is 15 products, of which 3 Chinese companies are represented and the rest are from Sweden, USA, Africa and Canada and includes brands such as Morakniv, Klymit, Teton, Lifestraw, Dowco, Vitchel & Borleni. Look em' up. They aren't Klim and Spyderco so they aren't as well known... but they are legit no less... and so is their gear. Hence the success of the RUFKM DEALS page we reckon.
Some Mo Deals...
The Gear deals come by way of research and also by promo codes we receive from Amazon. Some deal sets are premium gear finds. Some are budget gear finds. Some deal sets by promo code range between vital gear & fun considerations. This following set is a little of everything with discounts as much as 75%.... CLICK THE IMAGE TO EXPLORE THE DEAL. AMAZON WILL AUTOMATICALLY TELL YOU THAT YOUR PROMO CODE FOR THE ITEM HAS BEEN ADDED TO YOUR CART.
CAMO CAMPING TENT/ HAMMOCK
Probably not your end-all / be-all camp hammock but worth a stab to see if you like hammock camping, or for the kids, or a buddy. Note there are only 2 days left on this one. The promo ends MIDNIGHT 3/15.
TACTICAL / SURVIVAL KIT
Again, most likely not an heirloom waiting to be but def some secondary kit value in-- the Molle pack, 5 mode flashlight, glass-breaker/pen, locking carabiner etc. Awesome gear filler, gift etc for 13 bucks.
COLLAPSIBLE CAMP STOOL
I'm still trying to get my head around this one. It might be damn well epic if you are one who travels with a camp chair. Holds 330 lbs.
WATERPROOF INVISIBLE TRAVELERS BELT
This is a travelers no brainer at 75% off. Holds up to a 6.5" tablet too.
TOUCH SCREEN CAMPING GLOVES
Let your riding gloves air out at camp. Seller rates the glove to 30 degrees. Who knows how accurate that is but... 3 bucks its worth a go to us.
BRAIDED IPHONE CORDS
A buck fifty per cord certainly beats picking one of these bad boys up at a gas station for 19 bucks. It's insane what they charge for these.
60mm Polarized Unisex Aviators with UV 400. Smoking deal at 9 bucks.
OBD2 CODE READER
These are pointless. Until you need one.
KIDS BALANCE BIKE
These are pretty cool and a great gift
FULL DRY FACE DIVE MASK
I've yet to try one of these but I hear they are pretty cool.

THE ADVENTURIST REGISTRY
The Adventurist Registry is a repository of names, dates and optional full (media-rich) accounts of you, us and our fellow adventurists having achieved iconic routes, races or challenges from all over the world.
It currently has 30 routes represented --from the likes of the BDRs, BEAR TOOTH HIGHWAY & DRAGONS TAIL on through to challenges like ERZBERG RODEO & the RTWs. As it would have been nearly impossible to represent all of earth's iconic rides, the platform allows YOU to add them as well.
Our intention for this registry is to eventually compile a robust compendium of names, media and information on the respective riding areas and challenges that will be of inspirational and informational value to all active adventurists and especially the next generation coming up behind us.
