When you spend as many nights travelling as I do and have, I often get asked.
What’s in your bag, what is your essential travel gear, your must have items, What can you not live with out.
I don’t invest too heavily in items that I cannot carry with me, so the following items are in my current travel bag.
Tech & Bag
Sometimes you need your files on the go and this is my, go to Portable External Hard Drive, even if its not full.
I am team Google all the way and a massive advocate of the Chromebook way of life
I have been rocking the Pixel now since the original Nexus device came out and wouldn’t change now, having fallen out with my iPhone 6+
This compact DSLR from Sony offers me everything I need from a camera, when I not using the Pixel Phone for camera work. Which over 50% of the time, I am and do.
Camera stability on the go, its small and might, not suitable for the top down pics. Can be used with your phone too sometimes.
Smartphone stabiliser for a bargain price – you can’t go wrong
British Made and although mine has blue instead of grey, its called the Revelation! Weightless cabin bag. And it is truly weightless and with it’s 4 wheels on 4 corners is easy to manoeuvre too
Although I carry 3 of these in different places, I use this for my phone more than anything else. The other two are at home or in the car
Whilst I use a laptop that has a trackpad…
Due to volume of work and time spent on a laptop, I have always had a mouse. This mouse is one step further in my arsenal of luxury, and yes it really is silent.
This is listed as the Upgraded version for 2 reasons.
Firstly, yes I slip my laptop into this fleece lined and secondly. It has an accessories pouch and little storage pockets to boot
These are item I currently own… None of them are overly expensive, proving you can use your gear and not spend millions.
Edit: November 2019 – these will be updated over time – for example the Phone will be updated more than most and my Chromebook is due an upgrade too
