As the country begins to reopen, we'll keep publishing news to help you navigate the state of travel today (like whether travel insurance covers the coronavirus), as well as stories about places for you to put on your bucket list once it's safe to start going more far-flung.

Included below: everything—from our favorite rugged suitcase to the world's most comfortable shoes—except the lift ticket.

Nautica Breakwater II Rolling Carry-On

The Nautica Breakwater II rolling carry-on streamlines cross-airport treks with clever features like four 360-degree-range wheels and a single button-locking handle. The indestructible polycarbonate shell keeps your tchotchkes intact when crammed into the overhead.

Price $300

Danner Canoe Mocs

Danner traded some of the durability of its iconic seventies moccasins for style with the Canoe Mocs. The sacrifice paid off. The squishy crepe sole, leather upper, and polyurethane footbed are as comfortable as slippers but still good for long days on foot.

Patagonia Dual Aspect Hoodie

Part windproof shell, part breathable fleece, the Patagonia Dual Aspect hoodie is a smartly crafted layer with Polartec panels that vent heat under the arms, while the burly, lofted squares on the chest, arms, and upper back stave off wind and make this highly packable Frankenshell feel like armor.

Price $249

Rumpl Puffy Blanket

The Rumpl Puffy blanket strikes a perfect balance between hearty adventure comforter and plush lounger, with light synthetic fill stuffed into a water-repellent, 20-denier nylon-ripstop shell. Packed down, the two-pound, four-by-six-foot Puffy makes an excellent pillow.

Price $95

Amazon Kindle Paperwhite

Amazon’s new Kindle Paperwhite has twice the pixels of its predecessors for a notably crisper contrast between text and screen, and there’s enough storage for thousands of books in a slim, 30-square-inch package.

Price $120

Saxx Vibe Boxers
