1. Ozark Trail Backpack
Backpacks are perfect for adventures or as a “personal item” along with your carry-on luggage for a flight. This is a great backpack for traveling a few hours from home or half way around the world. Most of all it has great pockets for organization and a cooler pocket for food and beverages. For a full review read my post, The Ultimate Travel Companion.
2. Insulated Gel Bladder
Water bladders are great for hiking, camping, running, and cycling. This insulated gel bladder holds 2 liters of liquid. It has a quick connect hose for easy cleaning. In addition, it also has a flexible tip for easy use. This water bladder is compatible with the backpack shown above.
3. Sunjack USB Rechargeable Headlamp
Anything that is rechargeable is a plus in my book. I absolutely despise buying batteries, mostly because I always forget to until I need them. Rechargeable batteries are the way to go! This headlamp is very bright because it is an LED light. USB Rechargeable HeadLamp has 3 modes of light: white spotlight, white floodlight and solid red LED.
Each white mode has 3 levels:
Spotlight: High Level – 240 lumens, 50-65 meters, 3.5 hours; Mid Level – 110 lumens, 30-35 meters, 8 hours; Low Level – 40 lumens, 5-10 meters, 40 hours.
Floodlight: High Level – 100 lumens, 15-20 meters, 6 hours; Mid Level – 50 lumens, 8-12 meters, 12 hours; Low Level – 20 lumens, 5-8 meters, 48 hours.
Red Light is solid LED only.
It allows you to be hands-free for working, hiking, or camping.
4. Ozark Trail 2400 Portable Phone Charger with Solar Panel
This handy tool uses a solar energy to charge all of your devices. If you are a travel blogger then this is essential to ensure your smart phones and tablets don’t lose a charge before you capture those perfect Instagram photos. Here are some of the specs:

5. Waterproof Lightstick Powerbank
Adventures are sometimes spontaneous. The weather is ALWAYS spontaneous. Waterproof gear is so important because you never know when a torrential rain pour will hit, or you may fall in a creek. ha! Either way, this Sunjack waterproof lightstick is perfect for the adventurer who loves being outdoors. It is also great to keep in the vehicle in case of an emergency. The SunJack Waterproof LightStick Powerbank illuminates and powers your devices with ease. From lighting up your surroundings to charging your phone the SunJack LightStick is an essential part of any outdoor adventure!
6. Ozark Trail Multi-Function Tool
The Ozark Trail multi-function tool is the perfect tool for camping or hiking. I also purchased one for my husband for Christmas, and he LOVES it. (hint hint to the ladies for a gift idea 😉 ) It has a 15 in 1 tool function. This is definitely a MUST for the adventurer or anyone who needs a quality all-in-one tool for a low price.
7. The Buddy Pouch
This is such a GREAT product. First of all, it has strong magnets that allow you to attach the pouch to your clothes while you run, cycle, hike, or do any activity that requires your hands. The Buddy Pouch comes in a variety of colors and sizes. I received the buddy pouch for Christmas, and I highly recommend it! You can purchase it here.
8. Sunjack HeatBank-USB Rechargeable Hand Warmer + Powerbank
If there is one thing that I dislike it is cold hands and feet. The small packs of hot-hands don’t seem to warm my hands much. Sunjack came out with this rechargeable hand warmer and power bank. Never have cold hands again with the amazingly compact SunJack Handwarmer + Powerbank. This small device only ways 0.6 lbs but has the ability to heat up to 122°F, and sustain 7500mAH of charge for your everyday devices!
9. GoPro Hero 5 Black camera
Where do I begin? The GoPro Hero 5 black camera is the first action camera that I have owned. Although I am still playing with it, the GoPro is so easy to use! We received the GoPro Hero 5 as a Christmas present, and we purchased some attachments for our upcoming trip to Kauai. It’s the best gift for any adventurer or lifestyle travel blogger!
Finally, if you are wondering if you should purchase the GoPro compared to other action cameras then I definitely recommend the GoPro. Here are some of the specs:
