I like to keep it simple and light when I travel, packing only the essentials. Usually only my GoPro, phone, adapters, power bank, charging cables, computer, sunglasses, bathroom basics, sunscreen, wallet, and passport make the cut in my backpack and clothes and a universal pair of shoes in my carry-on. Lander travel gear offers true, expedition-inspired accessories and I’ve added four new essentials to my packing list from Lander.
Lander Travel Gear
It all starts with a great backpack. I need something durable and lightweight with a minimalist design. I opt for function and comfort over style and weather resistant is a must. The TIMP 25 Liter Backpack has well-placed stowaway pockets, padded shoulder straps, front webbing for accessory attachments, and adjustable straps. The haul handle is great for moving it around at customs and the coated rip-stop front panel protects from tears. There is a separate back panel that is the perfect size for my computer and I don’t need to worry about taking everything out of my bag to get to it at security checks. If it came in a variety of colors, especially something other than black that attracts heat, it would be the best bag I’ve ever used. It’s already my go to bag even though it’s in black.
I’ve dropped my iPhone 6+ more times than I’d like to admit. I need a protective case that is durable and is going to keep my phone safe. I have so much of my life in one place. The new Powell Case for Apple iPhone 6 Plus is lightweight and utilizes TPU and polycarbonate that protects the back of the phone. The raised bezel around the screen ensures the glass front panel is protected and does not touch the ground. The grippy textures edging around the case is what really stands out for me. I needed something that I could hold on to while snapping pics in a variety of situations. It’s lighter than my previous case yet it offers more features.
Neve cables by Lander are designed with both outdoor and indoor use in mind. I’ve already utilized the reflective technology when trying to find the cord in the dark. Usually when we travel, Athena sleeps in the same room as us. She falls asleep by 7 pm, leaving us searching for things with minimal light. I’ve started to wonder why more things aren’t reflective. The cable nylon and tangle-free, which is another great feature with children. They are lightweight and durable with the right balance of style and function.
The Cascade is a series of universal power banks that are built to last while maintaining a sleek profile. The 7800 MAH offers a 3.1 amp output, dual USB ports, and 4X full charge. I spend a lot of time in hotels and around resorts so I can usually charge my phone with ease but with recent road trips, out-of-reach travelers, and desert camping, the Cascade power bank now has a permanent position in my backpack.
