About Us

The Overland Essentials Story

The Overland Essentials is an off-road and overlanding gear provider that was started in early 2019 by Levi Farish and Brian Wildman. Finding the road less traveled has long been a part of their journey, as combat veterans and outdoor enthusiasts, overland adventures have become their way of connecting to something outside of the daily grind.


It is the natural calm of off-road exploration that allows Levi and Brian to recharge and connect with their family. Together they are working to build a community where people can find a passion for the overlanding lifestyle, feel connected to one another and to the outdoors, and have a place where education, community, and the overlanding products they need are in one place.

Our mission

The Overland Essentials will save you time and frustration in searching for the right gear. Levi and Brian have joined forces with other experienced overlanders (OE pro-staffers pages coming soon) to help you navigate product reviews and information and find what works for you and offer you a one-stop-shop to purchase what you need.
