BUY

▪ Camelbak Forge travel mug

$30 (16 ounce); $29 (12 ounce); www.camelbak.com

Camelbak has ventured well beyond its initial hydration pack and water bottle market. Now, with the “Forge,” it’s targeting travelers and commuters with a “premium” travel mug with double-wall vacuum insulation that promises to keep drinks warm for four hours. It’s got a self-sealing lid that’s great for reducing spillage, but it takes a while to master the push-button lock.

BUY

▪ Mountain Hardware Ghost Whisperer Down Jacket

This is not your usual bulky down jacket. The Ghost Whisperer weighs in at 7.7 ounces and can easily be bundled up in our pack during the warm part of the day. It’s water-resistant, with inside cuff seals that keep out moisture. Plus, it’s got a really cool name.
