Travel Gift Guide: Black Friday Edition

by Nov 27, 2020Guides

Great deals on Black Friday travel gifts

Travel gear can be pricey. Black Friday is usually the best time to pick up all the gear you’ve been eyeing.

Most of use are longing for the first trip we can take without fear of COVID or the associated travel restrictions. I can think of fewer things better than enhancing that experience for a loved one by making their travels less stressful, more convenient, and better prepared with some quality travel gear.

I am a big fan of truly useful products like these so I have been keeping an eye out on Black Friday deals. Most of the deals below are amongst the best prices I have seen on these items and the pricing should remain available for the coming few days.

As well, when you use some of these links below, I may make a small commission when you purchase a product.


Selected Black Friday Deals

Eagle Creek Pack-It Specter Compression Cubes

I’ve been using Eagle Creek Pack-it Specter packing cubes for over a year now.  I cant recommend packing cubes enough. Using packing cubes makes organizing your bag so much simpler. No longer will you stress over having to dig for something at the bottom of your bag at an inopportune time. Thanks to the strong ripstop nylon, these packing cubes make it easy to grab and slip out the cube you need by the handle. Unlike many other packing cube sets, these are made of durable, super lightweight, and flexible fabric. They come in several color options, however, I really like the light white and neon green option, since these colors are easy to see against the dark interior of most bags. They help keep your clothing organized how you see fit, or even keep separate dirty from clean clothes. The Compression set has an extra feature that uses ultra strong zippers to compress the items inside. As well, I prefer smaller sizes like Small or XS because they give you more flexibility.

RAVPower 65W 4-Port Desktop USB Charging Station (2x USB-C and 2x USB-A)

One charger to replace all of your others? Sign me up!

Simplify your packing and lighten your load for your next trip. This charger from RAVPower has enough ports and charging capability to charge most laptops with USB-C charging (like the Macbook Air and Pro) while fast charging your iPhone, Android phone, tablet, Nintendo Switch, and wireless headphones.

Peak Design Everyday Sling v2 (10L, 6L, or 3L)

Traveling or not, we are all carrying a little more on us than usual. Whether it be a couple spare face masks, hand sanitizer, on top of your keys, wallet, and smartphone, pockets just aren’t cutting it.

With fannypacks being ever so trendy, the Peak Design Everyday Sling is a great, stylish, and well made solution for traveling or errands alike. I have personally owned and used the older 5L v1 model and found it quite handy when I was bringing my crop sensor dSLR around town.

The Everyday Sling has a handy slidestrap adjustment feature that make it easy to fit snug to yourself and pull to the back or front when worn on your shoulders and waist. This means you wont have to take the entire thing off to get what you need from inside or pull to the front of you in areas you suspect might have pickpocketters.

It even has ant-theft measures on the front zippers and a hidden pocket.

It comes in 3L, 6L, and 10L sizes. I think that 3L will be fine for people who just want a nicer way to bring around their everyday carry, while 6L and 10L will be better for photographers with more gear. The Peak Design website (linked below) has tons of great resources and a handy guide to help you decide which size is best for your needs.

Hydro Flask Water Bottle – Standard Mouth Flex Lid 24oz

I have had a Hydro Flask water bottle for about a year now and it is the best water bottle I have ever owned. It has saved me countless dollars on water bottles – and not to mention what it has saved our oceans and landfills!

It is durable and keeps liquids cold better than any other bottle I’ve tried, even bulkier insulated ones. Normally overpriced, this is a great gift to pick up on Black Friday for just about anyone.
