Gerber made their name through great knives at great prices and in recent years their tools have earned the same respect. The Crucial Multitool is a mid-sized workhorse that’s perfectly sized and tooled for as part of travel gear or EDC gear, particularly because of the handy pocket clip. Intentionally holding only 5 but crucial tools, you get a mini tool box without the junk you don’t need. The Gerber Crucial while inexpensive has great build quality and a liner system that locks all the tools in place when needed.
The Beat Bottle is one strange and probably the most unique water bottle there is. Obviously it’s a water bottle but it’s also a smartphone case and an acoustics “speaker”. Making it ideal travel gear for minimalists or anyone active always needing a good place to have their music and phone close by. Made from a touchy 100% silicone that holds a generous 18 ounces. Topped with a handy cap and wrist strap.. Now you can have a special water bottle for digital survival prepping. Available in green, red and blue.
Drinking an alcoholic beverage in public (where it’s illegal) with a brown paper bag over it so it can’t be identified is a weird but logical loophole around that law, and it works around the world. But more than that, it adds a bit of protection from frosting your hands. Now as part of a drinker’s travel gear or party EDC, this is even better. Made from a reusable foil lined Tyvek which is water proof and tough. So it’s not actually a paper bag but an actual drink cooler that looks like one along with that great feel of it.
Probably the most effective personal travel gear safe ever. At least in terms of no one attempting to crack it because no one would look in or think that a poop and pee stained underwear would hold valuables. Although it can be worn, it’s designed to be hidden in plain sight or among your luggage, hence a “diversion safe”. The hidden compartment is 4″ x 10″ and is accessed by opening the velcro fly. Of course the stain is fake but it’s convincing, especially since no ones going to closely examine such a thing. Made in the USA.
A daypack is called that because they’re a good size to pack for a day of travel, exploring a city or carry on for flights. This official Marvel Captain America Shield backpack is just that, meaning it’s also great for everyday usage. Don’t let the cheap price fool you though, this is high quality travel gear that will be great for years of use. With flashpacking in mind, there are multiple padded pockets for organization as well as a laptop insert. The firm structure keeps it “shield” shaped so it looks great and wears comfortably.
You’re rather a flip flop person or you’re not. But for long term travel like backpacking and hostelling, a pair of flip flops becomes necessary travel gear but are still a second thought like socks. But Chester have made them special with these actual tennis ball material flip flops. Imagine how good and unique it’ll feel under your feet with the very same tennis ball felt as the professional grade Wilson balls. They also have an EVA inner sole and full rubber straps for superior comfort and quality.
It’s like Doctor Who’s spaceship, it’s bigger on the inside than it is on the out. The Matador Droplet Wet Bag is smaller than an egg so it works great as a keychain and the waterproof (but not submersion proof) bag pops out big enough to fit a change of clothes. This is ideal for almost any travel gear, particularly when you need to protect electronics, documents and other weather sensitive items on a pinch. Also pretty effective to waterproof the internal contents of your backpack as like a protective layer.
The problem with soda or any other carbonated drink since they’ve existed have been that the “fizz” dissipates so quickly that they sorta expire faster than milk. Larger the bottle, the bigger the problem. And forget getting soda for travel… until now. The Fizz Keeper re-pressurizes the bottle in a fun and easy way to keep your drinks bubbly for weeks instead of hours while doubling as the bottle cap. This is great houseware as well as travel gear. Now if only they can make something from ice cream from melting outside.
Probably the most inventive ultralight travel camping stove ever made, extremely minimal but with maximum function. Truly utilizing the “ultralight” description as the stove easily fits in your pocket along with the included case. The fully collapsible stove connects directly to a gas tank or any standard fuel canister with no other parts required, just place a pot on top or use the open flame to cook. The piezo ignition makes for great and easy use. Made of aluminum alloy and stainless steel.
This may be the ultimate packaged everyday carry gear kit for a key chain. It may not have everything but it pretty much has what’s feasible for key chain carry. Includes a capsule cache, baton pen, key multi-tool cover, micro LED flashlight and a master key ring set for all those items to attach to. Pretty nice pocket travel gear for the EDC’er. So everything in this photo is included and attaches perfectly to the specified clip working as a system – also can be used to attach almost any other item to. It’s like OCD for ECD.
Waterproof bags are nothing new but they all share a common problem; you have to hold them with your hands or keep them unattended while you do your water activities on the beach or the pool. With the OverBoard Arm Pack, you can keep your essential travel gear completely dry with complete freedom to have fun and get wet without worrying about your stuff. Guaranteed submersible to 19 feet (6 meters) and floats if it comes off for whatever reason. Your cash, smartphone, keys can now come with you rain, shine or underwater.
The Boker made Cera-Neck Knife get’s its name because of “ceramic” + “neck”. Designed to be worn around the neck with the included sheath and chain for convenience and access. The entire knife including the blade is made from ceramic, unlike steel it is completely impervious to corrosion, metal detectors and holds an edge (sharpness) better than any metal. The handle comes tied with paracord which could be removed for other purposes. One of the more exotic pieces of EDC travel gear, similar to carbon fiber knives.
UberBottle is quite possibly the world’s greatest water bottle. Because of its uber design and build quality, it’s equally fitting for travel, adventure, survival, exercise and just plain old hydrating. The collapsible UberBottle is made from a high grade silicone which is FDA Approved, 100% BPA and Phthalate free. No stains, aftertaste, or odor even after extensive use. Carry everywhere and have up to 17oz of water available to you at all times and shrinks down to almost nothing when empty. Should be a part of any travel gear packing list, minimalist or not.
Most sleeping bags are basically made for the same environment varying only with the temperature they’re good for. A typical sleeping bag in the Amazon Jungle, tropics or any time it’s hot, humid and filled with bugs will not be a pleasant sleeping experience. The Jungle Bag by Snugpak is the answer. Designed for the warmer nights, it can seal you in with the built-in bug net like a forcefield. The Jungle Bag also packs down to smaller (and lighter) than most sleeping bags on the market making it perfect for travel gear.
With each piece of electronic travel gear comes the need for power. But that means having to also pack spare batteries, so they made the LithiumCard to minimize weight and bulk. The footprint size of a credit card and the thickness of 5 credit cards. Great for iPhones, Android and most other USB devices. The LithiumCard includes a rinse-able, NanoStik pad, so it sticks to virtually any surface. Simultaneous bypass charging circuitry charges another device and LithiumCard at the same time. Available in micro USB or Apple iOS Lightning.
