first_imgPlan your next big adventure and travel in style with these road trip essentials.1. Carhartt Acadia JacketFor every road trip adventure, one thing is certain: you’re gonna get rained on. When the skies open up in the middle of your hike, make sure you’re wearing the waterproof Acadia. The ripstop nylon is durable but lightweight; it can compress into a fist-sized ball that’s barely noticeable in your pack. Though it’s waterproof, it still breathes, keeping water out while allowing body heat to escape. $84. carhartt.com2. Revo WindspeedThe lightweight, scratch- and impact-resistant polarized lenses on these titanium-framed shades, make them not only the most stylish glasses for travel but also up to the rugged task of hitting the road. $209; revo.com3. PrincetonTec ByteThe best travel headlamp is one you pack down at the bottom of your bag until you need it. Meet the Byte. It’s just 5 ouncesand rings in cheap. $16; princetontec.com4. Tern Eclipse S11itIt’s a bike in a box. But not some chintzy little toy bike. This aluminum framed cycle moves into James Bond (or at least Portland hipster) territory with 24-inch wheels, disc brakes, and an internal 11-speed Shimano Alfine hub. All that weighs in at 32 pounds and packs down small enough to cart around the world. $2,300; ternbicycles.com 5. Gregory Savant 58The ultimate travel backpack needs to serve double duty as both pack and suitcase. The Savant does just that thanks to easy-to-access compartments for travel, and an advanced suspension system ideal for true backpacking when you reach your destination. $199; gregorypacks.com 6. Goal Zero Guide 10 Adventure KitElectronic devices die at the worst possible time. But simply stuff this palm-sized pack in your pocket and you can either use the four AA batteries directly or charge up through a USB plug on the pack. Then charge the batteries back up with the solar panel. $160; goalzero.com 7. Redington Crystal Waters SkirtThe skort is the apparel of choice for active women these days, and this one gives all the benefits of both skirts and shorts underneath without looking like it belongs on a road bike racer. $70; redington.com 8. Boardworks Badfish Stand-Up Paddleboard The good news when it comes to inflatable SUPs is that it’s easy to take them anywhere. The bad is they usually lack guts. Not so in the latest from Boardworks. This inflatable uses a new multi-chamber inflatable technology (MCIT) to create a board that’s more rigid and features tapered rails for better handling. That’s something you won’t find in those other blow-up dolls. $1,500; boardworkssurf.comlast_img
