What’s in my CARRY-ON / TECH BAG 2022? + travel plans!

what

's in my

carry

-on

tech

travel

bag essentially all the items i don't want to put in the chex luggage below so i previously made this video a couple of years back just before the covered lockdowns and

travel

was wiped off the face of the earth well things have changed since then and i've actually got some

travel

coming up as early as next week so i thought that is as good a time as any to revisit the bag and all the things that make this very efficient very organized and essentially very practical for me and hopefully for you as well this is a little bit like a rolling studio for me because the types of

travel

and trips i do are generally longer term and usually long haul so although i'm taking stuff with me on the plane it doesn't mean i'm necessarily going to use everything within this bag on the plane some of this stuff i just don't want in my luggage so the trip coming up is actually to thailand and it is for six weeks but there's potential if things open up around the rest of asia and in particular japan that we may end up staying in asia even longer this is the max amount of non-camera specific items i'll bring with me so let's get into it so first of all the bag this is the air commuter brief it is incredibly durable it has a very very premium feel to it and of course it's in a messenger bag style so a lot of airlines will allow you to

carry

one main piece of

carry

-on luggage and then a second piece this essentially is my...
what s in my carry on tech bag 2022 travel plans
personal item this is my secondary laptop bag i guess so having it split into two bags is actually incredibly beneficial to me it means that at various checkpoints throughout the journey when

travel

ing i can offload the weight and i can just keep things separate likewise when we arrive at a destination this works as a great place to store a lot of my equipment everything can be organized in one place and there's no chance i'm going to forget or leave something behind because everything has a place primarily

what

this bag is designed for is for

carry

ing my laptop so i'm now on the new macbook pro 16-inch with the m1 max chip in there it has by far been the best mac i have ever owned straight out the gate it is performance galore i've never been able to throw so much stuff at a computer and it just handle it silently honestly these new macbook pros they are magic i am loving them so much it fits in pretty snugly um but it does fit within the bag it's not a problem in my camera bag where the laptop used to slide in it was a little bit tight on my previous one and i was always a bit concerned about lenses pressing up against it and other things which is why i ended up resorting to

carry

ing it in a separate bag and likewise it just made my backpack less heavy because this could sit on my rolling suitcase at the top of my bag easy to grab are my headphones of choice for the plane these are the bose qc35s probably the best noise cancelling headphones that...
what s in my carry on tech bag 2022 travel plans
i've ever used for long continuous sounds and they work brilliantly on the plane inside here i'll also

carry

a few sets of earplugs and of course the headphones and the cable i've actually replaced the cable to a thicker more substantial cable it's so much better than the cable that comes with the headphones a few people asked about this in the past so i'll leave a link to that in the description below of course it's great to have a cable because you can plug into the ife on the plane to watch your movies and things like that these aren't really the best for editing video they've got too much of a sound signature they're great for listening to music but not so much for doing audio critical work probably the most useful yet also annoying thing to

carry

in this bag is this my neck pillow and eye mask so this is from a company called air prop and it packs down some

what

small but not that small but this is probably the best neck pillow i have ever used it's so rigid and upright yet also incredibly soft and just a joy to use it's annoying though because it does take up a significant amount of room in the bag and it's just a bit bulky and just kind of in the way but honestly i don't think i could really

travel

long distance without this likewise i take an eye mask with me just helps get to sleep and just shut out from everything i go for the uh the foam model like this and they've just got the eye sort of space so it...
what s in my carry on tech bag 2022 travel plans
doesn't actually touch your eyes and you can you can relax so much more with one of these on the inside sleeve i actually

carry

the ipad pro 2018 model and i've got a slightly different case here to

what

i've previously shown on the channel now first you could think you know do i need an ipad if i'm

carry

ing the macbook pro but the truth is i don't really like using the macbook pro on a plane it's pretty large and if the seat in front of me reclines then there's a chance it could actually crack the screen i've had people definitely close their chair on my screen before and it's not a good experience when that chair reaches it if you're flying in business then of course you've got more space and and other things um but when you're an economy it's just it's not a comfortable experience working on things for all my entertainment i pretty much watch everything on the ipad so i'll use youtube premium and i'll download all sorts of videos and things i want to catch up with

what

ever entertainment i want to watch it comes from the ipad so i've got the ipad in this logi

tech

case and it has a full keyboard and trackpad so you can just set it up and you can you know type away if you want to go somewhere it's a great keyboard to use the trackpad is not as good as the apple trackpad so it's less responsive i'd say 95 percent as good as the apple trackpad but the great thing with this is i can quickly remove...
the keyboard and trackpad if i don't want to so i could either swap it around and use it in tablet mode or i could stand it up and use it in entertainment mode or i could get rid of the keyboard entirely and i could use it like this it's got space for the apple pencil of course and the whole thing is powered by the ipad via the magnetic connection so this is a great little case it's a far lighter and slimmer than my previous uh keyboard case i used to use on the ipad and i'm very happy with it the final large item in the main compartment is my

tech

pouch this is also from air i love pouch culture and uh i i swear by it put things into pouches and you'll never forget things so in here i've got my usbc cables my main ssds i'm using i've actually switched over to the sandisk extreme pro portable ssd and i've got the four terabyte version here so it's quite rare to find an ssd that is four terabytes this is pretty fast to work with it runs in usb 3.2 i believe for backups and extra space i use my samsung t5 i've got a two terabyte version here and uh that one just sits in there nice and easy of course they're both usb-c so i

carry

a couple of those cables and a usbc card reader this is the pro grade sd and cf express type b this is just blazing fast yes it's great to have an sd card reader back on the macbook pro but when you use something like this and you realize that even this is four times the speed of

what

's on the...
macbook pro i can transfer about 50 or 60 gigabytes worth of stuff in about a minute or two it makes it so easy to just offload footage from my cameras at the end of the day and having the dual slots means i can do two things at once over the same usb c cable i can't stress enough how good these card readers are i absolutely love them in this little zippy bit i just

carry

a 256 gigabyte usbc uh and usb a memory stick for times that may be needed i also have a set of in-ear monitors so i've been doing a lot of live streams for adobe live over the last couple of years and i'm probably going to be doing some whilst

travel

ing as well the in-ear monitors are brilliant for live streams because it means that i can monitor my audio and other stuff and they are very inconspicuous they just sit very flat to your ear they go behind they also have a flat enough sound profile that i can edit my audio pretty comfortably so again i'll leave a link to all the products in the description and if you do fancy yourself wanting to pick up any of these items clicking through them they're affiliate links they help support the channel at no extra cost to you into the back compartment i have my glasses the new massive charger for the macbook pro a lightning to usbc and apple usb c wall charger of course the new magsafe cable for the macbook pro so glad that's returned and this little adapter this allows my macbook pro charger to plug into us and asian wall sockets flat against...
the wall so it's just a replication of the standard apple one for those regions but instead of it sitting against the wall and falling out it can sit flat and uh the weight of it isn't going to drop it down likewise i actually have different wall charges for different regions and i'll swap it out depending on where i'm going if you're wondering about all the labels with my name on all of the products i do those with a dymo label maker i get so many questions asking how they're done and how they're made so again i'll leave that linked in the description below and uh i love the aesthetic to it but it's also so useful when you're

travel

ing with other filmmakers photographers or you find yourself an event or conference and everyone's using the same products so having your name on it just means you know which one's yours and which ones are just off to the side in the sort of bottle area of the bag i

carry

this portable charger uh this one i acquired it from a press trip it was maybe like in a sort of utility bag or something um it's just an anchor battery charger and uh

what

's useful about this is it's got two usb outputs see it's a great little size and uh it's actually 13 000 milliampere so yeah that's pretty good hidden in the little zip which is the most inconspicuous part of the bag i have my tile pro this is the one with the removable battery um i've had these for a few years they've got me out...
of a few difficult situations of almost losing my bag and this is just a tracker for items and baggage and things like that i've got numerous different ones across all of my baggage and again they're all labeled and numbered so i know which one is which in the front part of the bag this is where i have quick access to a number of different items that i may need whilst

travel

ing primarily this compartment here i actually empty my pockets and put everything in just before heading through security it's so much quicker to get through things when all you have to do is just put your bag in the trays and walk through get yourself prepared in line and you'll be breezing through so much faster so this area is wide enough to hold my iphone this is the iphone 13 pro max i can easily slip my apple watch off into there and if i have a strap that opens out flat it fits lengthways perfectly fine and of course any other items i may have will just slot into this area my phone and my apple watch of course are used extensively when

travel

ing there's one app in particular that i recommend to all

travel

ers and that is app in the air it's a way of tracking your flights and seeing things that are coming up you have a great little integration on apple watch so you can put it on your watch face you can see where the departure gates are any delays any sort of information related to your flight and quite often you get it before it's actually publicly on the boards it's...
an invaluable app for frequent

travel

ers and i love it most of my listening whilst moving around are actually through airpods pro i'm a little bit undecided on them for noise cancelling on the plane the bose qc35s have the best noise cancellation but the convenience of the airpods pro are second to none really i'll quite often find myself using the airports pro when walking around between airports and

travel

ing and especially when we arrive at a destination like in between places and on the day-to-day but for the actual flight itself the qc35s are just always on now for the last two years i've predominantly been using apple pay for payments i just love using it on the watch it's so useful so convenient however there are still some parts of the world that are not card based and they're still very cash heavy i'm hoping some of that has changed since covert but on the chance that cash is still king in places i still have to

carry

a wallet so i've got just a very simple muji wallet here and this is where i'll put all my cash and sometimes i'll

carry

a second wallet to put some personal cash because i don't ever want to mix business cash with personal cash gets very very messy and it's a pain when it comes to doing your tax return at the end of the year when you don't know where your money was spent it's also great for

carry

ing your

travel

cards and other places i'll always keep my suku in there just on the off chance the...
tokyo opens up and we're able to get there hope so it's always good to

carry

lens cloths around i've got lens cloths in i think every single pocket of my trousers and jeans and shorts and everywhere i've just got them coming out my ears it's good to

carry

a few toiletries whilst you're

travel

ing so this is just a lip balm i love this brand from japan i bought so many in bulk last when we were there and i think i'm down to my last two now um yeah very very good brand and these are just a couple of hand creams and face creams which again useful to do on a plane because the air conditioning will dry your skin out i

carry

a couple of pens this is a fiber tip double ended pen so again great for left-handers because the ink dries fast and i use these in notebooks and other things if however you have to write in one of those landing cars that also transfers onto the second sheet and the third sheet behind a fiber tip pen is not gonna work and i have to resort to a ballpoint pen again though as a left-hander i struggle with the ballpoint pen uh because you are pushing the pen rather than dragging it so i have this teeny tiny little ballpoint pen and uh if i need to i use this i hate using it but i've got it if i need it and then in this zip i just have a collection of masks i've got a couple of ffp2s which are the higher grade for protection both in and out and then this is just more of a regular disposable one as i mentioned this is not everything...
that i may use on the plane a lot of it is actually for when i arrive at a destination and i plan to stay there for a few months or longer but some of it absolutely is invaluable to me when flying and

travel

ing on trains and other places so make sure you check out the links in the description below and if you do decide to pick anything up then using those links is actually a massive help to me at no extra cost to you as you know i don't really do sponsorships on the channel very often in fact in 2021 i didn't do a single sponsored video on the channel so as a way of supporting me that is a massive benefit and thank you likewise if you ever want to check out any of my digital products such as the titles that have been shown throughout this video and some of my lightroom presets and luts those are also linked in my store below i've just remembered one one very valuable and crucial thing that i've forgotten because it's in the hidden pocket at the back and that's of course my passport you can't get very far without that so i keep my passport in this passport case that is a custom made thing i've just trimmed up loads of different luggage tags and stuck it over this rfid protector and then any sort of status frequent flyer cards and another of those annoying little pens how did i forget the passport so useful man likewise at the back here i

carry

a series of postcards these are great to hand out to viewers that i meet and other clients and business...
people um just a great way of advertising yourself and giving out your contact details i much prefer them over business cards for sure so as i said i've got a trip coming up to thailand and planning to do a lot of

travel

vlogs and photography vlogs whilst we're there and yeah i hope you found this video useful make sure you subscribe if you want to see those

travel

videos and other things i don't always do these types of

tech

videos but when i do they're a lot of fun and you guys seem to like them so uh yeah thanks for watching and we will see you from thailand next week see you now bye
