Putting all other so called “minimal” wallets to shame, the Grifiti Band Pocket Wallet takes the rubber band around a wad of cash concept literally. Because let’s face it, it is just a rubber band, well, highgrade silicone that is. But it works and is perfect for the extreme minimalist travel gear enthusiast. For some, it could be their primary and only wallet and for others it can be their sport or water activity wallet. Whatever the case, it’s fast and compact. Available in green, black, yellow, pink and red.
Whether on a lite vacation, camping in the wilderness or travel backpacking, most packing lists fail to to include any sort of energy gel shot. It’s like a faster intaking and affecting PowerBar. Very small and easy to pack without weighing down your travel gear kit, the Huma PLUS shots are Chia seed blended electrolytes, natural and tasty. Made to help you through the toughest of physical activity without the downside or hassle of coffee or unhealthy sugar drinks. Convenient soft packs can be carried in your pocket or a bunch in your backpack.
Strictly for the flashpacking travel gear packing list. Imagine having the ability to brew up a shot of espresso while riding an airplane, camping in the wilderness, chilling on an island beach or just stuck at home without coffee. No power outlet or batteries needed nor a whole lot of space to pack it up. Just add hot water, ground coffee beans, pump then drink. So yes, this is an actual espresso machine (the most compact available) smaller than the size of a small water bottle. Comes with a bean scooper and an integrated cup.
One of the most original and useful duffle bags ever invented. Unlike most similarly shaped bags, each of the ends open up via drawstrings, not horizontally across the top. This makes it into 2 separate pockets that can be adjusted to different ratios and faster access. Ideally, 1 side could be used for clean clothes and the other for dirty clothes but the uses are endless; wet to dry, tops to bottoms, his and hers etc… Due to the tough material, you can also store other travel gear other than just clothing.
The Scrubba Wash Bag is toted as the smallest “washing machine” in the world, despite the quotations, it really gives your clothing a machine effective wash. That’s pretty damn impressive for a 5 ounce backpack packable piece of travel gear. Using hundreds of washing nodules inside the bag, it gently but thoroughly washes clothes in minutes. This revolutionizes doing your laundry while traveling for long periods of time in places where washing clothes can be a challenge. Also, the bag itself can be used as a drybag when not in use to waterproofing any contents.
Every travel gear packing list should include some first aid items but for the more adventurous traveler, a full kit is necessary. But these tend to be large and bulky, so MediSpor presents their Travel Mini First Aid Kit. Despite it’s small size, it comes with a zippered hard shell casing and in it is a whopping 100 pieces of life and minor injury saving goods. What’s more is the case comes attached to a carabiner to clip to your backpack, belt or other anything else for quick emergency access.
Almost any pen can be opened up and the inside can be used to hide something to be hidden, but it’s very limited. With the Stash Pen Diversion Safe, you have a much larger and convenient stash compartment meant for hiding cash, gems and party favors. This diversion pen looks like a pen, a dull one in fact and that’s the point, no ones going to steal a cheap pen or give it a second look. As they say, the best hiding spot is the one right in front of you, or in this case, your hand – that’s some handy travel gear accessory.
There’s a saying “that phone is attached to his hip”. Although that pretty much pertains to everyone nowadays, with the Kenu Highline, it can be literal. The case protects the iPhone from damage while the security leash it’s connected to tethers to your person to protect from accidental loss or theft. The coiled leash is made from braided Kevlar (bullet proof vest material) for ultimate reliability. Great travel gear to never lose your iPhone, even if you do, it’ll be attached to you dangling securely.
Flasks are cold and not always socially (or legally) acceptable to use in public or the outdoors. Solution? Warm and comfy knitted mitten flasks, of course! Fill the mitten with any desired drink up to 3 ounces with the included funnel and cap it until you need it. Just flip the thumb to access the hidden tethered cap and drink up anywhere, anytime. The fleece lining makes for actually great winter travel gear clothing beyond alcohol. Available in red or black.
Probably the most technologically advanced chunk of wood ever created. The PowerPlant is made from a beautiful solid block of real American walnut wood with 12,000 mAh of power inside. That’s enough juice to charge up an iPhone 6 (or equivalent) upto 4 times. But further making it better travel gear kit, it can charge just about any device that works on USB. Mother nature and technology fused at its finest to earn the name “PowerPlant”. Comes with a premium USB cable, not those generic bargain bin units.
The “sleeve” was invented to combat the fat wallet syndrome but that usually means the removal of most features and much of the usefulness of a regular wallet – to slim it down. So the “wallet sleeve” became just an actual sleeve. But Bellroy Wallets have reengineered the sleeve into the Elements Sleeve. A feature packed sleeve with more function and utility than most full sized wallets, without the bulk, of course. It has 2 main pockets of which the contents can be “ejected” by the pull tab of which also doubles as a hidden key (or stash) pocket. All in a water / weather resistant premium leather.
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.
