Gear & Products

The best travel products to bring on your trip.

3 guides

Buy less, but better. Buying one 💯 shirt instead of three 😐 ones. You'll often pay a premium to live this way, but long term it’s worth it. Higher quality means you buy, own, and waste less. Better design means a more delightful experience that works in more scenarios. This helps simplify our lives, which is even more important when traveling. There’s a reason “bring less” is an oft repeated travel tip. Turns out lugging around a lot of stuff kind of sucks #whoknew.

We also love products that travel well because it means they work well at home too, whereas the reverse isn’t necessarily true.
