Five incredible gadgets for big adventure in the palm of your hand.

Outdoor Tech Buckshot Speaker

This water-resistant Bluetooth blaster is wrapped in grippy, shock-absorbing rubber and comes with a handlebar mount. It's only as large as a roll of quarters but still packs a mighty punch. Bonus: a built-in mic allows you to use it as a speakerphone. $50.

Leatherman Skeletool

Leatherman cleverly cram-med seven essentials into the five-ounce Skeletool. The combo includes a bottle opener, pliers, and a 2.6-inch blade—pretty much everything you need to MacGyver your way out of a tough spot. $70.

Stumptown Voyager Coffee Kit

Brewing coffee on the road or in the backcountry can be a hassle, but Stumptown simplifies your addiction with the 12.3-ounce Voyager kit. The collapsible dripper and manual burr grinder fill up the included enamel cup (not pictured) wherever you happen to be. $125.

Spy Optic Fold Sunglasses

Professional surfer John John Florence is on the road more than seven months of the year, so it makes sense that his signature Fold sunglasses from Spy Optic break down and slip into a leather case that doubles as a travel wallet. $120.

Outdoor Research Antimatter Pack

A number of backpacks can scrunch to nearly nothing, but few offer these kinds of design details: 70-denier reinforcements on the shoulders and bottom, compression straps, and two mesh water-bottle pockets. And the 18-liter bag still crumples down to the size of a few Clif Bars. $75.
