25 Gear Essentials

There's the gear you want, and there's the gear you need. After much internal debate, we present the 25 products every guy should own.

The North Face Base Camp Duffel
It's not that we have anything against wheeled luggage. It's just that we like to go places where there's no pavement. That's why we're such big fans of The North Face's Base Camp Duffel. It's water-resistant and nearly indestructible. It has surprisingly comfortable backpack straps and daisy chains for strapping it to the top of a bus or truck. And the largest of its four sizes fits some 155 liters of gear, or the equivalent of two expedition backpacks. From $110; thenorthface.com
