Matador offers two useful pieces of outdoor gear that stow compactly, but come up big when needed.
The Droplet, a waterproof bag with a 3-liter capacity, tucks into a tiny silicone cover on your key chain. It keeps dry stuff dry and wet stuff wet and separate from the rest. Then there’s the water-resistant Pocket Blanket, large enough for two to lounge on, yet no bigger than a wallet when folded up. The Droplet retails for $14.99, and the Pocket Blanket for $29.99.
