Not all Dopp kits are created equal. The North Face’s version is made from tough ballistic nylon that easily withstands shower spray and mist.

Showers are great—when you can take them. But it’s not always possible, so make sure you have a pack of these wipes in your kit. They’re extra thick but soft enough to use in the most sensitive places, and aloe vera and vitamin E moisturize as you scrub the grime away.
Why waste time and materials cutting the end off a cheap plastic toothbrush when you could use this overdesigned model that folds into itself? Plus, the head is replaceable when the bristles wear out.
Whether you’re rinsing off after a bike ride or grabbing a quick shower at a hostel abroad, having your own towel comes in handy.

Our tester Kassondra Cloos crowned these undies best for travel in our active underwear roundup. The nylon and Lycra blend mesh dries in a flash. “They wick moisture exceptionally well, and you won’t feel the need to change immediately even after working up a sweat,” she writes.
Never lose your keys or wallet again with the Tile Pro. We found this tracker so handy that it earned a spot in our 2019 Summer Buyer’s Guide. “If you’re within 300 feet of the Tile, you can see its location on the phone app and make it chime, so you can zero in on it,” our tester writes.
Goodbye, shaky footage. Outside contributor Brent Rose praised the Hero7 Black for its superb image stabilization. “It handles small bumps much better [than the Hero6] and does a killer job of eliminating vibration,” Rose writes. “The footage is certainly smoother and easier on the eyes (and the stomach).”
