You’re making big plans for 2019. So big, in fact, that a single country can’t fit them. We’ve got what you need in this collection of our favorite adventure travel gear, from a duffel bag to a stylish, do-anything coat, to a charger that will let you break up with airport outlets for good.

Big Agnes Stagecoach 125L

None

Rolling duffels can be a godsend for weary travelers, but they’re often heavy, pricey, one-trick ponies. The Stagecoach doesn’t break the scales, and comes in at a reasonable price given its durable construction. Read the Full Review / Buy Big Agnes Stagecoach 125L Now

Fjällräven Greenland Wind Jacket

None

The best travel apparel works everywhere: on the way, on the trail, and on the town. This natty number blocked gusts on exposed hikes in Idaho’s Selkirk Mountains, but is breathable enough that our tester didn’t sweat out completely on uphills.

Sea to Summit Ultra-Sil 18L Nano Daypack

None

We gave this pack’s cousin, the Ultra-Sil Daypack, an Editors’ Choice Gold award in 2017 for its durability and versatility in a tiny package. Sea to Summit improves upon that in the Nano, halving the weight and making it even more packable (it stuffs down to the size of a hacky sack).

myCharge Portable Power Outlet

None

This charging block means never having to sit next to an outlet on
an airport floor again. The novel-size battery pack has four power outlets (a 65-watt AC power port, two USB-A ports, and a USB-C port), so it might even help you make some friends to boot. Read the Full Review / Buy myCharge Portable Power Outlet Now

The North Face Motion Pants

None

These well-priced pants check all the boxes: mobility, weather resistance, durability, and a sleek profile that easily transitions from hike to après. Read the Full Review / Buy The North Face Motion Pants Now

Helly Hansen Vanir Hybrid Pant

None

Piling on performance-enhancing features can be a slippery slope: Before you know it, you start to look like you walked out of an Everest documentary. These trousers resist that by balancing aesthetics and functionality (there’s a men’s version, too). Read the Full Review / Buy Helly Hansen Vanir Hybrid Pant Now

Point6 37.5 Compression Socks

None

Long flights and hikes can wreak havoc on your circulation. Compression socks help increase blood flow, but most aren’t actually good for hiking. These are. Read the Full Review / Buy Point6 37.5 Compression Socks Now

Columbia Spinner Vent Moc

None

Want to simplify your kit? The Spinner doubles as a supportive camp slipper and a shoe you can kick around town in. “I even wore it to hike the rocky and rooty Pipiwai Trail in Hawaii,” one tester says. Read the Full Review / Buy Columbia Spinner Vent Moc Now

Peak Design Travel Backpack 45L

None

From airplanes to camel trains, this sleek pack can handle just about any commute. Tuckaway shoulder straps and a lay-flat bottom make it easy to stash in overhead bins, and 12 lash points let us strap it to pack animals and canoes. Read the Full Review / Buy Peak Design Travel Backpack 45L Now

Patagonia Capilene Cool Daily Long-Sleeved T-Shirt

None

No wrinkles and no stink mean that we wore this shirt straight from the trail to the airplane. A Polygiene treatment on the polyester knit banishes odor, and the fabric resists wrinkles even after being packed for days.
