I'd Like A Label Please: Defining Our Travel Style

I'm someone who likes a good label. Not like designer clothes, but the kind of labels we hang on ourselves. They keep me cozy and safe feeling. My labels are fleece lined and wind resistant.

But, we didn't put them in the store just because we hoped to make a nickel from the sale, we put them there because they're things we're using right now on our Slow Travel Trek (or very similar to the ones we have) and think that others might find them useful too while traveling.
