The Best Gear for Travel
J Thoendell stashed this in Travel
With that in mind, our goal was to put together a guide of reliable travel gear that will make your life easier, allowing you to focus your energy on those serendipitous travel experiences. Over the past two years, we’ve spent more than 200 hours researching and testing dozens of products to find the most dependable items to help you travel well.
On top of that, we sought the advice and wisdom of Doug Dyment, the author of OneBag, who’s logged millions of miles as a traveling businessman and public speaker over the past few decades, and we ran our picks by travel pro Robert King, who has logged 1,000,000 miles while traveling internationally for business over the last 20 years. We also relied heavily on the Wirecutter and Sweethome staff’s experiences as an especially mobile group that has worked remotely from every continent except Antarctica—the five most frequent flyers among us accounted for more than 450,000 miles in 2014 alone.
