Tested Travel Gear
Subterra Powershuttle Plus by Thule
The Thule Subterra Powershuttle Plus is a tech pouch with enough organization to handle everything from small memory cards to full-sized headphones.
Setout Duffle Bag by Tortuga
The Tortuga Setout Duffle Bag is a solid duffel that works well for two bag travel. Although a bit large, we love the organization this bag offers.
Boulder Boot by Lems
The Lems Boulder Boots are some of the lightest and most compressible boots on the market, but the zero drop design may take some getting used to.
Setout Laptop Backpack by Tortuga
The Setout Laptop Backpack is a solid tech-focused backpack, although we’re left wondering what it has to offer that the Setout Divide hasn’t already covered.
18oz Collapsible Water Bottle by Hydaway
The Hydaway water bottle truly hides away, compressing into a disc the size of a CD. We’ve enjoyed testing it even though we’re not thrilled with the aesthetic.
Topo Designs Travel Bag 40L by Topo Designs
The Topo Designs Travel Bag offers some great organization in a classic heritage style, although we think the harness system is less than optimal.
