THE BEST
TRAVEL GEAR.
We built this list of incredible gear with one goal in mind - helping you comfortably navigate the globe. Below you will find all of our favorite stuff we take with us on trips, be it a quick weekend getaway or an ambitious yearlong trip around the world. Are we missing any of your "must-have" gear? Please let us know!
 
As you move from city to city or from the hostel to the beach - you are going to need several different types of bags to easily carry all of the essentials around with you.
Sometimes, it's all about the little things. The $5 cord to connect your iPod to the bus cruising into the outback blaring "Do you come from a land down under"?
Worrying about your favorite gear back at the hostel while you are mixing with a group of locals at a rocking street party is no way to spend any trip abroad.
For many, staying connected abroad is not an option. It's a lot easier to update your blog or share your pictures with friends and family if you travel with your own silicon chips.
 
Unfortunately, memories slowly fade and experiences are soon forgotten. Luckily photography captures everything you see and allows you to share it immediately and for an eternity.
No longer used just to accept a call from home or meet up with a local, phones can now be used for portable photography, maps, guidebooks, wifi and so much more!
When you don't have a huge closet, nor a laundry machine down the hall and your week involves hiking the Inca Trail - your clothing needs to be multi-functional and high tech.
Walk on a hot Brazilian Beach. Hike to Everest Base Camp. Stroll around Manhattan. Shoes for the hot dinner date with the local tour guide you met this morning - check.
 
 
BAGS
 
1. MAIN PACK
 
 
$180
Need a pack that you won't always have to check, but still holds a ton of gear for your adventures? The Osprey Atmos has your back!
$220
While traveling, your backpack is much more than a place to stash your clothing. If you're looking to pack extra gear - choose the Aether.

2. PACK ORGANIZATION
 
 
$13
To stress or not to stress? That is the question. When traveling, your clothes should be last on your "worry list" - a clothing organizer is your answer.
$13
Don't make yourself an "outcast." Stay "so fresh and so clean, clean…" with a handy bathroom kit readily available and accessible!
$13

$20
Like a well-kept secret, dirty clothes need to be as contained and suppressed as possible. Give yourself some "space," and use this air removal bag for all your "dirty little secrets."
