Whether you have been a Gadgeteer reader for a while or have just started, you know that Julie has a section called “Julie’s Favorite Gear” that lists items that she uses. So today while I was looking at some of the items I use on a regular basis, I thought I would come up with my own list of “go-to gear”. This is the gear that I would choose if I had to pick only one of each item. I plan to cover a new category of go-to gear every other week or so until we run out of topics. We’ll start with bags.
It’s hard for me to make a selection of just one bag. I am torn between my Pelican i1075 iPad case and my Kelty Essential 900, but in the end I have to go with the Kelty. The Kelty Essential 900 is an older model (discontinued) fanny pack-type bag. The main reason I chose the Kelty over the Pelican iPad case was versatility. The Kelty has several zippered compartments and is large enough to carry my iPad and all my essentials for trips. The Kelty Essential 900 also has a shoulder strap, so it has versatility in how it can be carried. This is definitely my go to bag for almost any kind of situation I can think of. So, what’s your go to bag, briefcase, or backpack? Tell us a bit about your favorite bag in the comments.
