Welcome to our first-ever list of the Ultimate Travel Essentials, a definitive guide to the travel products you need to ensure your next trip is a success. First stop, tech.
To assemble the best tech for travelers, we polled staffers, frequent flyers, and gadget junkies to find what stuff they couldn’t imagine traveling without. Then we pulled together a dream team of products in each category and put them all to the test.
The gear you see here was road tested from coast to coast and across a couple continents — by both Apple fans and PC devotees — and after all those test runs, we can’t imagine traveling without ‘em.
Check out the full line-up of 2017’s Ultimate Travel Essentials.
