There’s not writing about mugs without bringing up the Hydro Flask Coffee Flask. In short, it’s perfect for coffee. It keeps things warm. It’s easy to clean. And the finish is nice and durable.
REI Flash 22 Pack ($35; 36 percent off)
A good daypack should be simple and cheap. For most quick after work hikes, you don’t need a frame or tons of pockets—or the massive price tag they come with. In other words, you want the REI Flash 22 pack. It has just enough room to carry a few extra layers, water, a snack, and a pocket for your phone and keys.

Simple and trendy, this is one of the best water bottle ever made. It will keep your hot beverages toasty for up to six hours.

Osprey Atmos AG 55 Pack ($180; 25 percent off)
The “AG” stands for Anti-Gravity, Osprey’s term for the Atmos’s swath of torso-conforming mesh that allows airflow while providing balance and support. The unique design creates contact with your entire back (read: no pressure points), which allows you to stabilize loads both large and small.
