What’s in my bag?

Hi folks,

I’ve been revising my travel gear.

Home brew canvas camera bag with waterproof padded insert, Olympus OM-D E-M1, M.Zuiko 12-40mm lens, XUME adapter and hi-vis (not so easily lost) πŸ™‚ 62mm yellow lens cap, Op/Tech – camera strap, wrist strap and hood/hat, LOMO waterproof dry box containing Anker USB powerbank, USB LED torch, charging cable and memory card storage case, 2 or 3 spare camera batteries in waterproof cases, Garmin GPS, filters in neoprene case, thinkTANK emergency rain cover, radio transceiver and waterproof case.

I have added stick-on indicators to the battery cases to let me know the charge state of the batteries and a thin cable tie to secure the lens cap to the XUME filter adapter so that it doesn’t detatch from the adapter. I’ve ordered some zip pulls to attach to the zips to make life a little easier when wearing gloves. I’m also adding some hi-vis reflective patches to my bag after nearly getting run over at night in an un-lit country lane in the Corfu countryside!. πŸ™‚ One of which I’m going to stick over the completely naff name plate on the front of the bag. I like to think that I have a degree of “charm” and “a personallity” but not stuck on the front of my bag! πŸ™‚
