Pack this Water Bottle and Unfurl It for Hydration!
I am lucky to have been gifted dozens of very heavy, strong metal water bottles over the years, it’s the newest form of politically-correct swag. That’s great and I love using them, but sometimes they take up too much room.
The Nomader Collapsible Water Bottle solves this problem by letting me scrunch this bottle up in my backpack until I need it. No need to tell the boys at TSA that my bottle is empty!
One jack…and four buds for two people to share!

Hefty 60 L Backpack from Banana Backpacks with Side Entry
Most 60 liter backpacks weren’t designed for travel. They frustrate you with their cumbersome top-loading design, force you to constantly “get creative” with your packing, and steal precious moments from your adventure. That’s why they built the Khmer Explorer Travel Set. It lays flat, has a built-in packing system, plenty of pockets (even a secret one), and all the awesome ergonomics of a hiking pack. It’s time for your luggage to stop holding you back.
The Banana Backpack $222
