Travel can be one of the most rewarding experiences – but you have to do it right. And for fans of everyday carry, that means loading your pockets with the best, most appropriate gear. Granted, that’s going to be different for each and every person, but we believe there are at least a few universal items everyone should have. Which is especially true when it comes to international excursions. For this week’s pocket dump, we’ve put together a loadout of gear that’s perfect for all types of travel – by land, sea, or sky – but will help you out especially if you’re crossing borders between countries and making your way through areas in which the language spoken there is unfamiliar to you.
Pelican 1920 LED Flashlight
Made in the USA, this pen light from Pelican features an output of up to 120 lumens and as low as 12 – all operated by a simple tail switch. It’s also powered by two AAA batteries, has a durable anodized aerospace grade aluminum body, and can run for up to 9 hours straight.
The Tin Mill Passport Hardback Wallet
Protecting your passport is of the utmost importance when traveling – both to keep your identity safe and to keep your necessary documents in order. And there’s no better way to do that than the Tin Mill Passport Hardback Wallet. Machined from a single piece of aerospace grade aluminum, it features RFID-blocking and is tough enough to protect your passport and anything else you slip into it.
Fisher Space Pen Trekker
Built from stainless steel, this keychain EDC pen is loaded with Fisher’s signature pressurized cartridge that can write upside-down, underwater, or in zero gravity. It also features a snap-off posi-lock cap for extra security when you’re not using it, and it was made in the USA.
Myanmu Clik Translating Wireless Earbuds
There are a lot of wireless earbuds on the market right now – but very few, if any of them can do what the Myanmu Clik can – namely, live translate 37 different languages, both locally and over long distances, in real-time. Of course, if you just want a pair of stylish music players, they offer that, too.
Apple Watch Series 3
While many competitors are now offering a lot of handy tech in their smartwatches, Apple has still set the pace with their Apple Watch. This version, the Series 3, is the best of the bunch – offering water resistance; a whole host of onboard sensors and tracking (especially helpful for keeping records of your workouts); and a bunch of customizable options from the case color, to watch straps, to your home screen, and more.
