Hitting the road for that big trip soon? Here’s the gear you will most want to pack along.
Fjallraven Keb Touring Trousers
The one basic piece you should pack around when you are preparing for a big adventure: pants. These stretchy Swedish touring trousers can take a beating out on the trail and work as ski pants, too, with hems that adjust to accommodate ski boots and zipper venting for when you work up some steam. That type of versatility is just the ticket when you are looking to save pack space. Plus, they’re made from enviro-friendly recylced polyester and organic cotton. Available in men’s and women’s. $250; fjallraven.us
One Eleven SWII
You can rely on this solar-powered wrist watch to keep you on schedule, whether you’re out in the wild or running through an international airport. Made from stainless steel and plastic from recycled bottles, the rugged timepiece is mandatory gear when we are off the grid.
Phiaton Bolt BT 700
What’s even better than wireless earbuds when you want to enter your own private sound bath on a long flight? How about a travel case that charges them with up to five hours of listening time? Even better, that case is also a mini speaker that will light up the scene when you’re out at a backcountry cabin or kicking back in the hotel bath. $139; phiaton.com
Recover Sport Polo
Choose your travel shirt wisely: You’ll want it to look the part whether you are chilling at a European cafe or hiking up into the hills. Made entirely from recycled materials, this sporty polo wicks moisture and dries in a hurry, meaning it can withstand the travails of travel.
Gregory Quadro Hardcase Roller 30”
Big and burly but weighing in at a reasonable 11.8 pounds, this voluminous roller can suck up a ton of gear—and includes an odor-killing compartment for nasty laundry and muddy shoes. The high-impact polycarbonate outer shell can withstand even the most surly baggage handlers, and the wheels pivot on a dime. Go on, run it over Roman cobblestones or up a rocky trail.$220; gregorypacks.com
