Aqua Quest Waterproof Backpack/Daypack w/straps

This 10L Dry-Pack will keep your gear dry when you hike in the rainforests or mountains, and the weather can surprise you. Conveniently sized, holds your DSLR and some additional gear for your day trip. The straps that make this a backpack are very handy. Essential gear for any outdoor adventurer!

Bestek Universal Camera Liner Insert

If you don’t like to carry around a traditional camera bag, like me, you’ll want a camera insert which you can put into your backpack to keep your DSLR (and additional lenses) safely in order. I’ve used an Osprey Flare 24 backpack on my travels for some time now, and this fits in it just perfectly. It’s also shockproof as well as waterproof, so it also helps to keep your gear dry.

PacSafe Theftproof Wallet and Antitheft Camera Strap

Now these are products that I love! I’ve had them for awhile already, and I trust them 100%. The attaching chain of the wallet is made from a material that you cannot break – not even with proper cutters! It also has a turn-and-lock security lock, which is hard to open. Attach this wallet to your backpack etc. and you can be sure no pickpocket can steal it from you! It has many pockets, also two zippered ones, so there’s plenty of room for your cash, coins and cards.

This strap is a great, little piece of gear – a slashproof camera strap. It has the same kind of turn-and-lock security locks, like the wallet. A stainless steel wire is integrated into the adjustable straps. They’re invisible to the eye, but that’s the secret why it’s slashproof. Excellent additional safety for your camera.

AeroPress Portable Coffee Maker

When you’ve made coffee with this, you’ll never again want to drink coffee made any other way! It just simply makes the best coffee in the world. It’s the “high-tech” of coffee making, though very simple and light to carry around with you. If you’re a bit of a coffee-snob like me, you’ll love it.

Buff headwear (regular or polar)

Buff is one of the most versatile pieces of clothing you can take on the road. It’s a scarf, a headwrap, a face cover, and from the polar version, you can even make a beanie. I like the skulls, but there are endless designs to choose.

Microfiber Travel Towel

ECOdept travel towel takes tiny space from your backpack, dries quickly, is antibacterial and is a breeze to use. Just essential.
