Get going: essential travel gear

A selection of good travel gear that is tough but stylish, durable but distinctive

Punch in the words ‘travel gear’ into a search engine and you’ll be hit by an avalanche of brands, technologies, gadgets and little thingamajigs that you didn’t even know you needed. Which is all very well and good if you’re the kind of traveller who climbs Kilimanjaro every three months. But why not build a little wardrobe of travel gear that is versatile? Clothes and accessories that can go on the Eurostar, the London Underground or halfway up the Appalachian Trail. This is a Mint Indulge selection of good travel gear that any traveller will do well to stock their wardrobe with. Gear that is tough but stylish, durable but distinctive.

WATERPROOF RAIN HAT

Sealskinz

£30
