Among the many, many critical pieces of gear you need to have on hand during an outdoor hike, a quick camping trip or an off-road excursion, access to technology is pretty crucial (particularly during inclement weather).
The Goal Zero Venture 70 aims to keep you connected, and does it quite functionally and easily. With a strong weatherproof rating — exactly what you need when going “off the grid” — it can charge everything from your phone to headlamps, with power to last. It can even be recharged using compatible solar panels — it’s not with every portable charger that you can check that box off. Just team it with hard-wearing outerwear and a tough daypack, and you’re all set. – $149
