All of them.
One thing I rarely if ever travel without is my passport. Mainly because Pennsylvania’s driver's license doesn't get me on airplanes.
The other thing I rarely travel without it my Buff Original!
One of the things which I have always loved about buff is the versatility. I usually wear it around my wrist while running.
Most of the time, I use my Buff to act as a towel to remove sweat while running. While wrapped around my wrist I also use it to hold an energy gel or a small water bottle.
But, Buff was invented as a multifunctional headwear product. That being said, it also helps protect against wind and keeps me warm.

Iceland is definitely cold at 0200. I am so thankful that I had my buff!
On the topic of versatility...sun protection is a part of “runner safety” I think a lot of people overlook.
While writing this, I realized that Buff Original is my swiss army knife of running gear!

The other thing which I find interesting and maybe impressive is that the new products are made of recycled plastics!
From the website: repreve®
Sustainably and consciously sourced - 100% Recycled REPREVE® Microfibers are made from two plastic water bottles that have been removed from oceans and landfills.
What I think is impressive is how ultra soft this headwear is. Even the reflective version is soft. It's not scratchy or anything.
From the website:
