Travel Gear

Backpack – We used 60-liter backpacks for our 10-day scooter trip. A smaller pack will work for shorter trips.

Packable Down Jacket – I have one very similar to this hooded Ultra Light Weight down jacket. Love it!

Rain Poncho  A rain poncho that doubles as a tarp in case of emergencies! Very handy!

Quick Dry UV Shirt – Quick dry and convertible with SUV protection. And a variety of stylish colors!

Quick Dry Convertible Pants – These pants are a great way to pack minimally as they’re pants and shorts.

Packable UV Jacket – This jacket packs small and will provide UV protection while on the road.

Microfiber Travel Towel – I got this one for Christmas and love it! Dries quickly and has a carrying case.

Wireless Earbuds – I always listen to music while traveling!

Solar Power Charger – Charge your gadgets on the road. Also has a built-in flashlight. Got this for Christmas!

Power Adapter Kit – This handy power adapter kit fits any plug you may find. Also has a USB port.
