GoPro Hero7 Black Camera and Travel Kit ($399 and $60)
New from GoPro, the Hero 7 understands 14 voice commands. (Example: “That was sick!” lets you flag a particular section of video.) The travel kit includes a mini tripod, lanyard, and padded case.
UCO Sprout Mini Lantern ($15)
Whether you’re headed for a campsite, a yurt, or a cabin, bring this tiny 100-lumen light, which has a handy strap for hanging.
Fjällräven Kiruna Padded Parka ($350)
With a water-resistant, waxed-canvas outer and synthetic insulation, this thigh-length coat is what we grab when a regular puffy won’t do.
Thule Crossover 2 Toiletry Bag ($49)
Tired of rooting around in a Dopp kit? The Crossover 2’s wide opening allows you to see everything at once. (The lid also snaps around towel bars for hanging.) A pair of water-resistant pockets keep liquids quarantined, while small mesh pouches hold sundries.
Osprey Ozone Duplex 65 Pack ($220)
Roomy enough for a ski helmet but small enough to still rate as a carry-on, the Duplex is full of features, including internal compression straps and a laptop sleeve. It also splits into a duffel and a daypack, so you can slot it into whatever space is left in the overhead.
Gregory Quadro Pro Luggage ($250)
The 30-inch, hard-sided Quadro Pro swallows everything you need for several weeks. The dirt-, moisture-, and smell-resistant compartment separates sweaty clothes from clean, and a TSA-approved lock and multidirectional wheels make travel a breeze.
Klymit Versa Luxe Blanket ($119)
This is for camping, but you’ll want it everywhere. Swaddle yourself in high-loft fleece, fold it into a pillow, or use it at the beach (the bottom is soft ripstop polyester).
One Eleven SW1 Solar Three-Hand Watch ($125)
The SW1 has a solar-powered battery, so you’ll never have to worry about your watch dying again. It can even recharge on indoor light. The brushed stainless-steel case and interchangeable straps are classy to boot.
Costa x Bureo Caldera Sunglasses ($219)
With every compliment these killer shades get you, be sure to mention that they’re made from recycled fishing nets. The polarized, UV-protective lenses are incredible at reducing glare.
