ACLIM8 ambassadors are real-world field testers. They're dedicated outdoor recreationists who bring a DIY bent to their pursuits. At any given time you might catch them overlanding through remote terrain, chasing trout, hunting elk, or cooking a hearty camp meal with their family. But chances are you won’t catch them at all (except online) because they stay on the move, with their ACLIM8 gear in tow at all times.

Traveling with a kit that supports self-contained travel and assures the ability to problem solve is paramount in how I approach adventure. The challenge lay in making sure that the gear is durable, applicable and high-functioning – always looking to strike a balance between not enough (going lightweight) and not too much (too weighted down).
Overlanding is ever evolving and the gear is no different, and I am a gear nerd. Currently I am using multiple tools that I can see the ACLIM8 replacing. Overlanding is also about maximizing storage space and saving weight without sacrificing function and comfort. I am truly hoping through extensive testing that the ACLIM8 can replace each of these tools.
I think ACLIM8 will enhance my adventures with its high quality and dependable gear. As well as being compact for those backcountry trips. I value space saving gear that can get the job done, especially when it comes to loading up the UTV for a long camping trip or a multi-state hunting trip. Space, durability and utility are very important to me.
We are a completely outside-the-box family. We—Evan (dad), Chrstine (mom), Ash (kid), Miles (kid), and Charlie (dog)—restored a ‘72 Bronco kitted for overlanding and have made the leap to leave the traditional confines of modern life and live full time on the road. We are constantly using tools to build and fix things, and the COMBAR allows us to streamline our toolkit.
You’ll find me doing just about anything outdoors—overlanding, hunting, fishing, climbing. While I like to luxuriate with delicious camp meals, my days of SERE survivalism training taught me to get by with minimal gear. When I’m not exploring I’m designing products for the outdoors, and from a design standpoint, the COMBAR is world class. It’s so versatile around camp.
I’ve been traveling by motorcycle since 2013 and my ADVing resume includes completing the Trans America Trail, entering and finishing the Hella Rally Raid, and chasing the Rally Dakar in 2019. Together with my partner, Lennart, I guide adventure riding tours among other things. Traveling by motorcycle, our greatest concern is always weight and space, so having a multitool that’s lightweight and compact is super exciting.
I was introduced to camping and motorcycles as a kid, by my dad. Those interests turned into passions, which turned into an entire lifestyle of adventure motorcycling around the globe. I try to avoid the main roads and look instead for the places no other people will go. In remote places like this, a multifunctional tool like the COMBAR is crucial.
