2021

  • Mystery Ranch Urban Assault 24. This is quite new but I’m already very fond of it. It works and looks right at home hiking, at the beach/pool, or to take to the office. False bottom padded laptop compartment, love the 3-zip.
    • I tried a Rip Ruck 24 for awhile which was a really good bag, I loved the way it looks, but it was a little awkward to fish smaller things out, to fit some larger things I often carry outdoors, and lacks an external waterbottle pocket. Ended up selling it on eBay to give this a shot.
  • MEC Portable towel
  • MEC Waterproof bag
  • Patagonia Trucker hat
  • Swell Bottle
  • Hero clip
  • Kindle Paperwhite
  • Random tool pouch
  • Perscription sunglasses from Zenni Optical: I adore mirror finish and couldn’t get it on perscription until I found Zenni.
  • Zippo lighter: trying the plastic wrap to keep the fluid from evaporating.
  • Thinkpad T470s
  • Garmin Vivoactive 3: I’ve grown to love having a GPS, step tracker, heart rate, and time on my wrist without having to charge every day and sign over more of my life to Google or Apple.
  • OLight i5T EOS: love this because it uses a single AA battery, easy to carry spares and we have a lot of rechargeables in our household
  • Knives: Spyderco Para 3 Lightweight, WE Banter, Civivi McKenna w/ brass scales and damascus
  • Spigen Galaxy S20 case
  • Leatherman OHT multi-tool
  • Spare batteries

  • Keys (M240i, Forester), Doohickey
  • Miserable USB-C earbuds that came with my phone (I really need to replace these)
