(July 2019) 10 Travel Products I am Totally Loving This Month

We are always testing out new travel products for all of our trips and to enjoy at home. So, I had an idea! Starting every month I will now be releasing my ten favorite travel products, travel accessories, and outdoor products hoping you all will discover some new fantastic brands and products!

My Favorite Travel Products in July



If you’re shopping for a new pair of travel shoes, likely, you’ve already come across Allbirds on the internet. They’ve billed themselves as the most comfortable shoes in the world, made to fight odor, be worn without socks, and generally handle the demands of travel exceptionally. Those are all some tall claims – I knew I had to have some.

We both got a pair this month and love them. The feeling of wearing them is best compared to wearing a wool sweater – comfortable and cozy. They are so soft and will be our new all-around travel shoes. Allbirds try their best to source sustainable materials for their shoes, which we love. The style is also great, and they look even better in person than online with high-quality details.

Glyder Apparel

Glyder Apparel

You all don’t really see this when we are traveling, because I don’t normally roam around cities like Osaka in a sports bra and leggings. BUT when I am home and working all day, going on a short walk or only taking a break to go to a fitness class( or have wine by the lake) I am living in workout gear.

So that’s why I was pumped to get my hands on Glyder apparel for the first time. They make super cute and stylish activewear and are sweat wicking and breathable. My favorite part though? They are not see through AT ALL. I always have Cam test out my yoga pant sheerness and he always tells me when we can see straight though to my underwear. He was really impressed that he couldn’t see anything with the Glyder yoga pants.

Jelt Belt

Jelt Belt

Unless I am hiking in leggings I need a belt to secure my pants. The newest one I just got is a Jelt Belt. Jelt is a women-owned social enterprise that produces belts made from 100% recycled plastic bottles with an innovative patented flat buckle that won’t show a bump under tops or tees.

Both Cameron and I have a few of these bad boys and they are SO much better than regularly clunky belts.

Peak Designs Clip

Travel:Camera Products I LOVE

This is has been one of our favorite additions to our camera equipment and hiking outfit. The Peak Design capture clip allows for a camera to be clipped on to your backpack strap or belt. It has to be one of the best accessories we’ve ever used for carrying our camera.

The clip feels secure and robust with a straight forward design that makes switching straps easy. We’ve brought it on several hikes around the Canadian Rockies now and it has changed the way in which we photograph hikes. The access it provides to your camera is so much better than a camera strap that allows a camera to swing and banging into everything.

It’s super handy and a must for anyone who wants to carry their camera on hikes, but not interested in fumbling around in their bag every time they want to take a photo.

Delsey Suitcase(s)

We just got three new Delsey suitcases and I am beyond the moon. We’ve been traveling with the same suitcases for years and were in desperate need of a few new ones. I wanted one that was stylish, and larger than a carry on for our next big trip.

Cameron got their green Chromium Lite 25″ Spinner, and then we received another carry on Cruise Lite Hardshell – because one can never have too many carry on pieces.

So I ended up getting a 24″ Spinner from there beautiful Chatelet Collection (trying to be more stylish when I travel.)

Topo Designs Boulder Pants

Three Sisters

Earlier this year Topo Designs sent us their new travel carry on backpack for a review. We loved it so much we recommended it all over this site. They then reached out again offering to send us more of their new gear, and we both loved all the colors, designs, and practicality of their new line.

My absolute favorite score however, had to be their Boulder pants. They’re technically built for bouldering since they are flexible and made out of quick dry stretch nylon, but I actually find them perfect for just sitting around the mountain lakes.

Fjallraven’s Keb Pant


Both Cameron and I have Fjallraven’s well known Keb pants. We got them back in April, but I haven’t had a chance to wear them until now and they have become my new hiking favorite.

Fjallraven’s Keb pants are a mountaineering staple, but they are heavyweight and not excellent for quick dry properties yet extremely durable. They kept me warm throughout every hike I have been on so far. When I was too hot at the base of the mountain, I was able to unzip the sides for airflow. These are, without a doubt, my favorite pants to hike in the Canadian Rockies, and well worth the money.

Fair Indigo Dresses

When I heard about Fair Indigo, the sustainable travel clothing brand for both men and women I knew I had to give their clothes a go.

Fair Indigo sources organic Pima cotton from small family farms in Peru. I love buying clothing that is sourced ethically from workers making a fair wage – not sweatshops. They use Peruvian cotton and alpaca because it is ultra soft, and you can feel it with these clothes. I chose some very simple black, navy, and grey skirts and dresses as Fair Indigo uses only certified earth-friendly dyes. Now, it just has to get warm enough in the mountains that I can wear them – yes, it still feels like early Spring here.

Oh, yea and none of these dresses came with tags, and came in a fully biodegradable bag! You can use the code NATASHA15 for 15% off your order!

Outdoor Research Shirts

Wasootch Ridge

I have six Outdoor Research Echo shirts and rotate them on all my hikes. They are lightweight and moisture wicking. Seriously, you don’t want to be stuck with a cotton shirt while hiking, as it traps all your sweat and then when you get cold it becomes a problem.

Outdoor Research shirts provide full coverage with their long sleeve collections, but you won’t get hot under the sun. These shirts are built with UPF sun protection, AirVent™ moisture management, and ActiveFresh™ odor control technology.

I’ve been loving these for hiking and for traveling as they are ultra lightweight and perfect for saving on space.

Yeti Camino Carryall

Yeti Camino Carryall

I am totally digging Yeti products in the summertime. Their coolers and drinkware and perfect for a day at the lake or beach.

So if you are going on a family road trip to the beach or a friend’s weekend getaway to the cabin I think the Camino Carry All is absolutely perfect for holding all the drinks you may need.

This bag is rugged and made from waterproof, ultra-durable material. We’ve really enjoyed having this on our weekend lake trips!
