While the camping bag doesn't have an internal frame, it still ranked as one of our favorites thanks to the included rain cover and ample padding on the straps. Itk features eight adjustable straps and tons of pockets and zipper closures, making it roomy enough for both day and overnight trips.

When we tested these buds, we were impressed with how the lightweight build combined with the ergonomic fit. We also appreciated the easy setup process, effective noise canceling and well-detailed sound output.

Bring your video chats, home security cameras and streaming device together into one device: the Amazon Echo Show 8. The second-generation model is normally listed for $129.99, but it's on sale now for $99.99—a $30 price cut good on both the charcoal and Glacier White models. When we tested the Echo Show 8, we were impressed with the new 13-megapixel wide-angle camera used for video calls through Alexa Call, Drop-In and Zoom. Though we were disappointed with the lack of built-in YouTube access, the ability to stream music from Spotify or TV from Prime Video was impressive.
