Canon is the most popular brand of camera slung around travelers’ necks; Pantene is the most common shampoo bottle to line the tubs of hotel bathrooms; and when it comes to choosing the backpack that will accompany them on their cross-European adventure from one hostel to the next, travelers trust The North Face the most.

Those are among the results of TripAdvisor’s annual Travel Favorites, which looked at the top product brands to fill travelers' suitcases.

Categories include the most popular brand of flip-flop (Havaianas), guidebook (Lonely Planet), car rental agency (Enterprise Rent-A-Car), cooler (Coleman) and sunscreen (Neutrogena).
