Clothes, Tools, Backpacks and Gear

I don't recommend a lot of products, but the things I do recommend are all things I love and use on a regular basis, and, where possible, I'll suggest free, inexpensive or middle-of-the-road alternatives; and I'm constantly on the lookout for tools, methods or products that simplify travel; so if you're looking for the latest and greatest in travel tech, you've come to the right place.
