Taking some time to evaluate what goes in my daily gearbag. I’m a big fan of keeping all the small stuff in mesh bags for easy drag-and-drop into a different backpack if needed.
1 – Maxpedition Pygmy Falcon-II backpack
2 – iPad in keyboard case, Apple Pencil
3- Aukey USB-C 20000mAh battery
5- Mobile-sized faraday bag
6- Mesh bag with a light drawstring bag (in case I pick up groceries) and a raincover for the backpack
7- Compression gloves
8- Shure SE215 bluetooth/wired noise isolating earbuds
9- Compression sack (take off hoodie, toss in sack, pull strings tight to compress & make small)
10- Emergency poncho, lensatic compass, emergency sewing kit, sticky velcro patches, mobile-sized waterproof case, N95 mask
In the middle: pens, pencils, styluses, electrical tape, anker battery, caffeinated Emergen-C, black nitrile gloves, a bunch of adapters and USB drives, travel mouse, mesh bags of holding. USB-C, lightning, and micro-USB cables.

Tempted to stop carrying the umbrella so it’ll start raining here in the Bay Area again.
