Gear check: My every day carry on trips.

I had just gotten off a plane and back home when I had an idea… so what if I had been traveling for about 24 hours, lol. Let’s turn on the video camera and see what actually came out of my pocket?

After all, isn’t that what really counts? The things you keep on you on and off the airplane when traveling? Not what is good idea, what’s really neat, what I should bring next time, but just what’s in it!

So without further comment, here’s the video:

I’ll follow with a list and links to where you can get the items if any strike your fancy. Just click!

1 – Casio Pro-Trek Tough Solar Digital Sport Watch

The Traser in the video was too easy to scratch so I sold it and got this one. With built in altimeter, barometer, thermometer, tide & moon data, world time, and most important, digital compass, the Casio Men’s PRW-2500R-1CR Pro-Trek Tough Solar Digital Sport Watch is a great choice. When I don’t need bells and whistles I wear a MARATHON Swiss Made Military Diver’s Watch with Tritium
or go bare wristed.

2 – Jeffrey Scott P2 Squared from the

Player’s Bracelet collection.

3 – ScotteVest Jacket/Vest

SCOTTeVEST Men’s RFID Travel Vest

4 – iPhone

Make sure to get an unlocked iPhone for travel. If one is locked to your USA carrier, you can’t just take a sim card and put it in. iPhones at Amazon

5 – Memory cards

Memory Cards

6 – Business cards

For a limited run I used these: Avery Business Cards for Inkjet Printers

7 – iPod cable & iPhone earbuds

I bought mine straight from Apple. Not the cheapest, but I like the quality of the in-ear buds.

8 – Inhalers

I use different brands and buy them at Watsons in Thailand, but they have some here. Many more choices available here at Inhalers at Amazon

9 – Travel Locks

If you’re going to buy them, get  Master Lock . Any luggage lock can be easily defeated, but these should last a little longer.

10 – REI compass/thermometer

I got it straight from the REI store. Here’s their website if you don’t have a brick and mortar near you. This would work too.

11 – s-biner

Nite Ize SB234-03-11 S-Biner Stainless, 3-Pack

12 – REI whistle

I got it straight from the REI store. Here’s their website.

13 – Streamlight Nano

Streamlight 73001 Nano Light Miniature Keychain LED Flashlight, Black

14 – Lewis N. Clark. It was the replacement to the wallet minder I reviewed earlier. The Hidden Travel Wallet actually works pretty well.

Hidden Travel Wallet by Lewis n Clark

The Lewis N Clark works well, but I believe the build quality on the Eagle Creek stuff is better. They have thicker stays. The last thing you want is your money pouch to break off the belt loop and slide out your pants leg with all your money! If I was shopping from scratch, I’d probably get this one:

Eagle Creek Travel Gear Hidden Pocket

15 – TravelSmith travel belt

or this one

16 – Pacsafe Walletsafe 100

Pacsafe Walletsafe

16 – Oobe Shirt – Discontinued, but I highly recommend this

ExOfficio Insect Shield Halo Check Long Sleeve Shirt

Good shirt and the insect repellent feature really works. I’ll be wearing this in Issaan the next trip.

17 – Merrell shoes – Best travel shoes I’ve ever owned.

Merrell Hiking Shoes and Boots

18 – ** not the cargo pants I was wearing, but the ones I wear cargo made! ***

5.11 Men’s TacLite Pro Pant
