So my friends introduced me to this gear shop in San Francisco called Triple Aught Design. Besides selling their favorite travel/adventure gear, they also have their own designs, which I think are pretty snazzy - if only a little pricey. So if you feel like splurging, this might be a good place to check out:
Also, they carry this funky but functional line of stuff from Civilian Lab
that I'm really digging. I got one of their Rewind "lossless" wallets, which I think will be kick-ass for traveling.
