What Are Your Daily Essentials
What are the daily must-haves that you always carry with you? Depending on what you do, that list can get quite long. I love the Hypebeast and GQ "essentials" series and seeing what things people just can't go without across a variety of careers, lifestyles, and locations.
We were talking about this with Peter, one of our Senior Hardgoods Designers, last week. Especially all of the digital things - laptop, camera, phone, etc. - that you need with you seemingly at all times these days. Our goal at Arc'teryx has always been to make the best gear possible, and making sure that they perform to the highest standards in real-world situations. And so we thought we'd open it up to you. What are the things that you always bring along? What devices never leave your side? And how do you make sure that they're protected from the elements?
Peter volunteered to get the ball rolling. As you can see in the photo, he doesn't leave the house without his laptop, phone and Bluetooth headset, iPod shuffle with headphones and charging cable, Sony NEX-5 camera with pancake lens, some spare USB and AC cables, two hats (one for the sun and one for the lack thereof), toothbrush, and a spoon (Peter hates disposable utensils). All stowed away nicely in his Blade 24 pack.
Thanks for sharing Peter, but sorry, you're not in the running. All of you are, though, so line up your essentials, take a picture, and tweet it our way. Thanks!
