Hunkering down at home is a good time to plan out your next adventure and get your kit sorted. One essential item is an air compressor, a versatile tool that will make your life off-road a lot easier. You can use one to inflate your tires after deflating them for traction, blow up an air mattress, or seat a tubeless mountain-bike tire. In this episode of the 101, Bryan Rogala shows us why the Viair 400P-Automatic Portable Compressor ($249) is his favorite model and explains why carrying one is a good idea.
