Roothy Proven Brands & Products

Simple – you won’t see anything here that isn’t Roothy Proven, in most cases over decades. There’s plenty of freebies for journos in this game, but these are the products I spend my money on. If it didn’t survive, you won’t see it here. Click on any of the logos to see more about my experiences with the best brands in the industry.

What do I mean by ‘survive’? Driving old leaf spring trucks huge distances through the outback is as tough as it gets but then Milo gets pointed up the worst tracks in the country too. From the mud-holes and creeks in Tasmania, to the High Country snows to the great long corrugated stretches to the Cape and the Kimberleys and beyond, stuff’s got to be tough to do the distance and survive. In most cases I have been using these brands and their products for over a decade and can safely recommend them because they’re strong, durable, functional and reliable.

There’s been plenty of other stuff along the way as you would have seen. Sponsors come and go and plenty of advertisers have outfitted my trucks. We’re lucky to live in a time when there are so many off-road products available and so affordable too. People have to start somewhere in this off-road caper.

But these days I get to do things my way and that’s what you’re looking at here. You’ll recognise that anyway if you’ve been doing this for a while.

Yep, if it’s going to survive, it’ll make it onto these pages. If it didn’t, it won’t. I’ve got a few more things to add before long but at this stage in my career, just like that final clamber up a muddy slope, it’s all about getting it right!
