Gear Hall of Fame: Electronics

The best trail gadgets of all time.


In the world of electronics, the notion of “what’s hot” turns over every season. But these 10 items have topped our list of favorites for the past few years. Why? Because we keep going back to them, despite the new items that keep rolling in. Who said all gadgets have to go obsolete?

—Kristin


We gave this camera’s predescessor our Editors’ Choice Award in 2013, but this latest version is even better. It’s still waterproof, tough, and easy to use, but it has an improved range of focus that ultimately lets us score better shots. $380; getolympus.com

What's even better is when you get to the page through the iPad magazine subscription and the first thing you see is a pop up with "Subscribe to Bacpacker!" You're trying to hard, backpacker. It makes me think you're weird.

Why put on one page what you can put on 10? Right? We are not interested in loading page after page, when the info can be scrollable. Not taking the time to see if a PLB is listed.
