Plus, because it’s wide-mouthed, you can add ice cubes and water filters when needed.

The Platypus Platy bottle is a foldable water bottle that’s BPA-free and lightweight. It holds 70 oz. of liquid, which is secured by a threaded cap.

It guarantees your drinks go to your body and not anywhere else.
Nalgene Tritan Water Bottle
For a leak-proof, BPA-free, and portable water bottle, get the Nalgene Tritan 32-oz. Water Bottle.

It also has a loop top so you can easily clip this to your bag (or harness if climbing).
SwissGear Travel Gear Laptop Backpack
We understand the pain of going through TSA checks when flying. So to help lessen that stress, get a travel companion like the Swiss Gear backpack. It has enough compartments for your laptop up to 17”, tablets, mobile phones, and other documents. But what we like the most is the lay flat technology that lets you through airport checks in a breeze.

Shower Band Labels
The hustle and bustle of globetrotting makes it easy for us to be confused which items are for the face and which ones are not. To avoid the confusion, here are silicon labels for your shampoo, conditioner, and body wash bottles. These are better than writing the labels simply because this will never be erased. They’re also color coded so it’s easier for you to remember which is which.
