After researching dozens of packable daypacks across a spectrum of portability, features, and prices, and then packing, unpacking, loading, wearing, and drenching the 10 top-rated finalists during two rounds of testing, we’re confident that the L.L.Bean Stowaway Day Pack is the best for most travelers.
Hiking baby carriers are essential if you want to walk more than the shortest distances with the shortest people. Poco hiking baby carriers made between January 2012 and December 2014 had yet to add a seat-pad insert to prevent a child from slipping through the leg openings in the carrier, so in April 2017 Osprey recalled packs with those production dates due to that falling hazard.
After researching more than two dozen models, interviewing experts, and having an electrical engineer test our top candidates, we found that the CyberPower CP685AVR is the best uninterruptible power supply (UPS) for people who want to keep a home network running during a blackout of an hour or less.
After considering 70 models and testing for over 30 hours, we determined that the Anker PowerPort Solar Lite is the best portable solar charger for people who want to power a phone or small device when in an emergency or off the grid. It can charge most phones at near-full speed and fill them with less than a day’s worth of sunlight.
