I recently won this bag and its contents by being nominated as a 'tech hero' by the folks at Carpathia - and it pretty much has all my bases covered. The backpack has a solid number of compartments - including a dedicated 15” laptop pouch, which is great because I like to keep things separated by function / texture. In here is a toolkit, a Moleskin notebook, a backup battery by Zoom, a Red Bull, Advil and some Tech Hero swag.
What can’t you live without? People/places to photograph and tell stories about.
What’s the most surprising thing you carry? Old fashioned paper books / notebooks. After looking at screens all day, I love reading a paper book and often take the most memorable notes in real, paper notebooks.
