Fully vetted items and I’ve personally bought, used, and can recommend for travels and outdoor activities.

I don’t treat items as one-time use so I spend a lot of time researching them and I don’t necessarily go for the “cheapest” stuff. Instead I look for high quality items that I know will last me a long time (until I lose them that is). Some of favorite items on the list include Coola Mineral Sunscreen (reef-safe, broad spectrum protection, and it’s like putting cloud on your skin), and Prana Halle hiking pants (I’m on my 3rd pair). I’ve had my Jetboil (bought for $20 at a used gear sale) for over 8 years and it’s still going strong. My latest favorite ‘discoveries’ are the infinity scarf and the Buff headwear.
