One of the most difficult things about backpacking or hiking is figuring out how to carry everything you need without a bunch of bags slowing you down. The jackets and vests by SCOTTEVEST can help make it much easier to travel comfortably while keeping all of your travel essentials close at hand. There are 23 pockets that are designed to hold all of your important tools. There are pockets specially made to protect your tablet, your eyeglasses and your smartphone, so you can keep your necessities close without any uncomfortable side effects.

A weather radio in case of an emergency

You can plan for most elements of your RV trip, but weather is not one of them. If an emergency should come to pass, it is important that you are prepared. Having a radio that can warn you of bad weather even if the power goes out is of vital importance. The Etón FRX3 radio not only provides breaking weather alerts, but it also has a smartphone charger and an LED flashlight to help keep you connected and safe. The radio even glows in the dark to help make it easier to locate if the power outage happens suddenly.
