AfterGlobe’s Travel Gift Guide for 2013
Many travelers live a life of minimalists. They own very few possessions of only what fits in their backpack or suitcase. They only take on something new when truly needed and usually get rid of something else when they do. Because of this, finding a gift for a traveler can be difficult. They need gifts that are functional and will make their travel experience easier for them. To help find the perfect gift for the traveler in your life, we gathered together a list of travel gear and supplies that even we would love to have on our travels- AfterGlobe’s Travel Gift Guide for 2013.
Flipside Sport 20L AW Daypack
This lightweight technical camera daypack is perfect to fit the travel photographer’s pro-sized gear. The sleek, low-profile design provides a minimalist and technical carrying option for the outdoor and action sports photographer in your life to carry their gear while traveling. Design with body-side access offers added security with quick access to gear then the daypack is rotated to the front.
A removable, adjustable camera compartment with storm-flap closure provides a customization space for gear while providing water-resistant protection. With plenty of adjustable space for photography gear, breathable padding, an ultra-secure tripod attachment system, and a hydration reservoir, it’s a great daypack for any travel photographer.

Restoration Hardware Roll-Up Travel Charger
It can be a hassle for a traveler to keep switching out all of their devices because they only travel with one charger or only have access to one outlet. This efficient roll-up leather charging station allows the traveler on your gift list to charge up to four devices simultaneously using only one outlet.
AfterGlobe pick: The only one to order.
What more could a traveler want from a laundry bag that doubles as a hand-wash washing machine? Fill the Scrubba halfway with clothes, pour in about three quarts of water with a squeeze of detergent or shampoo, seal, let out the excess air, and mush the clothes against the flexible “washboard” of tiny, rubbery bumps inside the bag. After three minutes of washing, rinse, hang, and dry. When not washing clothes, the lightweight bag doubles as a laundry sack, or folds away to the size of a pack of cards.
AfterGlobe pick: The Scrubba Washbag Travel Kit has everything you need to wash your clothes on the road.
