Say Hello to ZÜCA, the anti "jet lag" bag. Developed for the seasoned road warrior, the ZÜCA Pro is part carry-on, part organizer, and part "darn is this thing cool." With a built-in seat (seriously) and removable packing pouches that stack like drawers, this patented new concept in travel is like nothing else. Period. Better yet, the ZÜCA Pro fits comfortably into overheads and comes with a TSA-friendly toiletry bag. The comforts of home. You can take them with you.

Inflatable solar lantern. Little spendy, we got ours on sale for $12 at a big 5 sports. It works great for inside the tent, carabiner'd to rainflys, or other overhead lines. It doesn't do well sitting by itself in the wind.
