As the host of Travel Gear, people often ask me what my favorite piece of travel gear is. It’s such an unfair question (really?! only one item?) My stock answer? The Carabiner.
These little aluminum devices are tiny, but strong. They are the hooks that hold a climber in their harness way up high (I’m using several in this photo). Anything that’s so tiny, and pretty cheap, but then save you life… that’s my favorite piece of Travel Gear (oh and they make a great key ring too!)
