While we fully endorse minimal carry, when you’re far from home, your carry is all you got and must understandably be increased. Here’s a jacket that offers you multiple options for keeping everything you need accessible, organized and secure. Aptly, it’s called the Around the World Jacket and it’s made by Orvis who started by selling fly-fishing gear back the 50s — the 1850s — so they’ve had a little time to perfect the art of wearable organization.
Lightweight and made from cotton ripstop and nylon mesh, this travel jacket gives you an array of snap-shut and hook/loop closure interior pockets (including one for your phone with a cord slot for headphones). Add that to the six exterior pockets in front and large map pocket around back, and you’ve got something that will keep what you need close at hand and easy to find. Once you get the jacket, all that’s left is planning your route. – $298
