Webster's II: New Riverside Dictionary / 0-425-10267-X
I picked this up cheaply at a used book store. It's a good dictionary, although the "pocket dictionary" moniker is a bit of a stretch - this wouldn't fit in any pockets that I own, except maybe cargo pants pockets. Still, it's much smaller than a standard sized dictionary, and it's light enough to easily fit in a backpack without taking up much room.
I like how thorough and accurate this dictionary seems to be - I haven't yet found any "missing" words that I needed, and the definitions are clear and concise. Some of the included words are actually surprisingly obscure (which probably contributed to the slightly-larger-than-pocket size) but I prefer to have "too many" words than too few.
If you still need a paper travel dictionary in this day and age, then I definitely recommend this one, especially since it can be bought so cheaply.
