Fortnighter's 2013 Travel Essentials (PHOTOS)

As 2013 kicks off, we've road tested some of our favorite products that can take some of the sting out of getting to your destination. This collection of clothes and gear will make you look good, but more importantly it will keep you comfortable no matter where you go.

Pack smart.
