    Dopp Kit + Shaving Cream

    Ernest Alexander’s burly canvas Tucker Shave Kit ($90) is lined with waterproof nylon to contain leaks and protect your duds. The screw top on Ernest Supplies’ menthol-infused Cooling Shave Cream ($25) means you’ll never open your kit to find a toothbrush doused in goop. Bonus: the three-ounce pouch is TSA compliant.

    Don’t leave home without the basics: ibuprofen, hydrogen peroxide, an anti-diarrheal like loperamide, an antibiotic ointment, Band-Aids, gauze pads, and moleskin for blisters.

    Dr. Bronner’s two-ounce organic peppermint liquid soap ($3) doubles as a shampoo and laundry detergent.

    Bug Spray

    The ingredients list on Cold Spring Apothecary’s bug spray ($9) reads like the base notes of a cologne: cedarwood, lemongrass, patchouli. Even better? It really does keep bugs away.

    Protect your mug with Kiehl’s Facial Fuel UV Guard SPF 50+ ($38). In addition to UVA/B protection, it has doses of caffeine and vitamin C to keep you looking fresh.
