Gear that helps get you going on summer vacation
A multipocketed new jacket? A suitcase made out of tarp? A credit card-size charger that keeps your devices juiced? These are just a few of the items that can ease some of the stress of travel. Gear & Gadgets writer Judi Dash has tested these items for us and gives them a thumbs up.

Yo lamp( Zelco )
The Yo Lamp is a task light with a flexible 18-inch arm that winds out of and back into a yo yo-like 3.5-inch-diameter by 1.5-inch-thick plastic base. Uncoil all 18 inches, or just some, and bend the arm for the illumination you want. This is more a spotlight than a lamp, but the beam is bright, the on-off push button is easy, and the base comes in shiny blue, green or fuchsia as well as black or white. Runs on three AAA batteries (not included) or the included USB cable. $35.
