Good travel gear is essential to the success of any trip — no one wants a clunky suitcase in the airport, shoes that cause blisters halfway through your trip or tech gadgets that stop working on the plane. It can be time-consuming, though, to seek out just the right products. We've saved you some time and are sharing are six fantastic items that we have our eye on for upcoming trips.

Daydreamer Inflatable Neck Travel Pillow

This affordable U-shaped neck pillow is adjustable so you can form it to fit your neck and enjoy maximum comfort on the plane or in the car. It has a built-in inflation pump and inflates in 30-60 seconds — no blowing necessary. The pillow also comes with a packsack and carabiner clip, and the pillowcase is removable and easy to wash. The Daydreamer is made by AirComfy, a family business created by people who are always on the go.

Nomader BPA Collapsible Water Bottle

Water bottles can take up a lot of space, so collapsible water bottles are much easier item to carry around. The Nomader BPA bottle rolls up for easy storage and can also loop around your wrist. The bottle is made of shatter-proof silicone, is dishwasher safe and can hold both hot and cold drinks. The mouth of the bottle is also plenty wide enough to add more ice cubes if yours melt.

Paper Signal Packing Cubes

Packing cubes help organize your luggage to save space in the suitcase. This compression packing cube set is ideal for when you’re traveling carry-on only. Made by adventurist gear company Paper Signal, one packing cube is a little larger than the other. Both packing cubes are durable and water-resistant. They also have grab handles to easily take them out of the suitcase.

REI Drypoint GTX Jacket

A rain jacket is a must for every trip, and lately we’ve been loving the REI Drypoint GTX Jacket for those cloudy days. It’s a little pricey, but worth every penny — wet clothes are no fun. This rain jacket is made of GORE-TEX’s signature Active fabric, which is breathable and lightweight. The jacket’s visor blocks wind and rain without blocking your peripheral vision, and hand pockets are lined with mesh; reviewers describe the jacket as “perfect for backpacking.”

EPICKA Universal Travel Adapter

EPICKA’s travel adapter works in over 150 countries; it syncs with U.S., Australian and UK plugs, making it the perfect gadget to keep in your backpack all the time. With four USB ports, one USB type C and one AC socket, the adapter has the ability to simultaneously charge six devices. It’s compatible with any USB device — iPhone, Samsung, even digital cameras — and is safety certified. EPICKA even offers a 30-day money-back guarantee.


No vacation is complete without photos and videos to show to everyone back home, and the waterproof GoPro HERO7 is one of the best options on the market to capture those memories. Small, sleek and black, the HERO7 has HyperSmooth video stabilization and can take time lapse videos, too. The camera is waterproof and durable and even has a hands-free feature: say, “GoPro, take a photo” and the HERO7’s shutter will click immediately. You can even live stream Facebook videos directly from the GoPro.
