summer road trip essentials


There is something about the idea of a road trip that appeals to everyone. Even the most cloistered and most air-conditioned pasty-faced nerd dreams of chucking all responsibilities out the window, hitting the gas, and just high-tailing it to the Great Unknown. Before you do so however, you should make sure to pack some essentials for your road trip.


Summer Road Trip Essentials:


first aid kit road trip essential

First-aid kit | Best Made Co | $48


A first-aid kit could be extremely valuable on the road. You can put together your own kit with bandages, sterilizing solutions, topical lotions, and basic medical tools, or you can buy a ready-made kit such as the one offered by Best Made Co. for around $48.


solar power phone charger

Gadget and Phone charger | PowerAdd | $47


Let’s face it: few people are truly ‘disconnected’ in this day and age, and you will likely want to remain reachable even out in the middle of nowhere. With a handy gadget charger, you can ensure that all your phones, media players, and mobile computers remain juiced up and ready to go. The solar-powered pack by Poweradd is a great option for $47, and it can charge up to three devices at the same time.



cliff bars

Water and non-perishable food | Grocery Store | Depends 🙂


Even if you are handy with the crossbow and plan to ‘live off the land’, you can’t beat the peace of mind that comes from knowing you have a bunch of tasty treats right in your duffle bag. Only pack food that doesn’t spoil and make sure you have plenty of water to stay hydrated with. Throw a 6-pack of Clif Bars into the trunk as well for a quick energy boost.

face whipes for guysFace wipes | Ursa Major | $24


You don’t have to look like a Sasquatch even if you are miles away from the nearest facilities. Face wipes are great for avoiding that ‘hobo chic’ look, and they can be useful for cleaning up spills as well. When you’re out on the road and have to use the rest stop facilities, you will be glad you took along a pack of Ursa Major wipes for $24.


shick razor

Schick® Xtreme3® Ultimate Razor


Having a razor with you is absolutely essential. After all, you never know when you will have to clean up for the freak social encounter on the road! Schick® Xtreme3® razors are undoubtedly the best and you would do well to take a pack or two along with you. Offering More Glide and Better Comfort, Schick® Xtreme3® razors keep you from looking like a hobo even if you are traveling like one! Take a look for more info


road trip map

Paper map


Don’t be stubborn: use a map. Even if you know the area ‘like the back of my hand’, a map can be essential, and it could be the one thing that keeps your trip from veering off into disaster. Don’t rely on your phone either. As useful as mobile map apps can be, nothing beats the reliability of a printed map.


flash light

Flashlight | Bright Medic | $13


In the same way, pack along a flashlight instead of relying on that cutesy little app on your phone. Out on the road, you need a rugged, durable, and dependable man’s flashlight. May we suggest that ultra-bright Bright Medic for $13?


polaroid lifestyle cam

Polaroid Cube with WiFi | Polaroid | $99.99


Finally, make sure to take along a camera with you. In fact, why not go the extra step and bring along something that will allow you to upload your photos instantly? The Polaroid Cube with Wi-Fi is the best tool for the job, and it has features that will make even the most capable camera insecure. With a 35mm lens and 124º operation, the Polaroid Cube with WiFi ensures that your selfies look great no matter where you are!
