Travel Laptop Backpack, Business Anti Theft Slim Durable Laptops Backpack with USB Charging Port, Water Resistant

What we like: I love the multiple pockets to keep everything safe and organized.  The anti theft back pocket is great. Can be used on the weekends for hiking trips or day trips. Pack a laptop, lunch and snacks, tripod on the side, and a change of clothes.

This travel backpack can be used as a carry on bag for flights as well. It is well made and serves many purposes. Luggage / Suitcase strap on the back is great to slide over the luggage tube and attach to your rolling luggage for easier airport transport. Comes in different sizes. What a great adventure gift for guys!

What we like: We have this bundle and absolutely love the ease of the voice activation features. The controls are much easier to use and understand quickly than the previous GoPro hero cameras.  The camera quality is excellent and the stability is outstanding.  You can walk and bike ride with this strapped to your chest. The start up time is very fast and this GoPro is quickly ready to record.

What it comes with: This Ritz Camera Bundle includes GoPro Hero 8 Black 4K Waterproof Action Camera with Head Strap, Shorty Handgrip (selfie-stick, tripod), Two Sandisk 32GB Memory Cards, One Spare Battery (One included with Camera), Ritz Gear Card Reader and Cleaning Cloth

What We Like: If you are going on a biking adventure, we always make sure we have a bike lock, even if we think we won't be stopping. It never fails; if we don't have a lock with us we will definitely find a cute ice cream shop, boutique store or even a walking only trail that we want to explore but can't. 

We like the one made by Bike U Lock as it has a very strong cable and keys.  You can even thread the cord through your helmet and keep everything safe.

What We Like: This cooler backpack can be used not only for hiking, camping, beach and day trips, but for the office too.  Perfect if you have a longer trip to your destinations and need your hands free.  Pack multiple lunches and drinks. I definitely love the leak proof liner than can be easily cleaned.

RIVBOS Polarized Sports Sunglasses Driving shades For Men TR90 Unbreakable Frame

What We Like:  Polarized glasses with UV can be very expensive especially when hiking, rock climbing, rafting, etc. Great for driving and cuts down glare. These glasses are very affordable, will protect your eyes, stay on your face well and allow you to relax (less worry about scratching or losing them) while adventuring.  Maybe pack two on your trip! 

Occer 12x25 Compact Binoculars with Low Light Night Vision

What We Like: The color acuity and image sharpness of these binoculars are well within what I would expect given the design and build limitations.  Great size for travel and comes with a case. Perfect for travel, bird watching, sports games, etc.
