There are some products that have simply not failed me time after time. Like my REI Rolling Backpack, which is sadly no longer available from REI. There are others that you can enjoy.

I discuss my experience with many of my favorites in the travel series Two Broke Chicas Backpack Through South America, Central America, Mexico, and Cuba. My readers go there with me, now you can too.

My all-time favorite purchase is my Scottevest – travel vest. I always felt secure that our passports and money were safe on my body. The vest was comfortable enough to wear on the hottest day or on a long bus trip. It made border crossings a piece of cake with all my identity documents tucked neatly in an internal pocket of my vest. Check Them Out. (If you click this link I will be rewarded for my faith in this product).

The Q.U.E.S.T. Vest for Men has 42-engineered pockets making it the perfect vest for tech lovers and gadget freaks! 

TMobile Global continues to provide me with outstanding coverage and a global reach. 140 Countries and counting.

I hesitate to recommend REI only because it is a U.S. company and you can’t enjoy the amazing benefits of this company globally. But, if you are in the U.S. and looking for camping or travel gear, this is the place to go.

This mosquito net was a life-saver. It is big enough for two people. We bought it on Amazon
