  • If you leave your laptop at home when you travel, you can probably put all of your gear into one bag that also serves as a day pack/guide bag, like this Eagle Creek Guide Pro. Basically you want a bag that can hold a tablet, your charger, a couple of cables, bottle of water, guide book and a few other essentials.


  • The Monster MP OTG400 BK Outlets To Go 4 Outlet Travel Power Strip provides four power outlets in a compact package, yet widely spaced so you can use it with practically any size power brick.

  • They're expensive, but the Sennheiser PXC 310 BT Noise Cancelling Bluetooth Headphones are worth it. They have incredible sound range, noise reduction, are compact and comfortable, and can switch between bluetooth and wired connection to your devices.

    Someone should make an outlet that can use every single one of those prongs on that All-in-One adapter. Unecessary? Yes. But so are the greatest things in life.

    Besides, just the lulz from showing it off would be worth it.

    The Leatherman tool is TSA-compliant - ie, it has no knife.

    But, will it stop the TSA nazis from taking it (read: it's too cool not to take)?

      @gwd3@... This is why you would want a TSA-compliant one. That way you can take it with you through security, instead of the luggage check where baggage handlers go through your bags to find things to steal.

      If you're really concerned, don't take a multitool with you and ship it to your destination to meet you when you get there. Then do the same on the return leg of your journey.
