Every adventure is different and requires certain clothes and gear, but in our experience, there are a few things that we never regret throwing in the back of the car before heading out. You never know what kind of unexpected detours or impromptu stops you'll make along the way. Whether we're going for long road trip or just out for a quick hike, here are some of the products we never leave home without.

The best part about fall is it's that sunrise comes later, making it that much easier to shoot golden hour in the morning. Sony's a6300 is a staple for our team and we use it all the time. It's lighter and smaller than a standard DSLR but doesn't sacrifice any quality in images or video (4k!).
