When it comes to life on the road, portability makes all the difference. After all, the more you can pack it down, the more you can fit in your luggage. With that in mind, we compiled a list of space-conscious outdoor accessories that don’t just fit in your carry-on—they could fit in your pants pocket.
Outdoor Research Helium II jacket ($160)
The Seattle outdoor company’s award-winning minimalist rain jacket weighs in at just 6.4 ounces. Stow it in your running or hiking shorts and whip it out for full-on protection when the weather turns.
The PNW Sea to Sky pack ($89)
Bringing an extra pack on any mission can turn into a travel nightmare. The new Sea to Sky pack, which folds down to the size of a baseball, is built to eliminate that headache. Unfolded, this 24-liter Cordura beast is fully waterproof. Whether it’s day missions from base camp or an afternoon on the ski hill, this thing packs its own kind of portable punch.
