9. An action sports cam
It has become customary to document one’s travels by using a sports action cam. The obvious choice is the GoPro and there is absolutely nothing wrong with it. It is however quite pricey and if you go to a dangerous country where you have to worry about pickpockets 24/7, a cheaper yet comparable alternative might be the better option. The Apeman does exactly that. It certainly isn’t as good as a GoPro but it is 3times cheaper. Is the GoPro 3 times better? Certainly not.
10. Packing Cubes
