In like manner, I thought I would do a series of “Road Warrior” posts, since I travel a good deal myself. I always find it helpful to see what others are doing, and I hope this might prove helpful to you as well. I am also hoping to get additional ideas from you. I am always looking for ways to improve my system.

The video explains it all, but for reference, I am currently using the Knomo (pronounced no-moe) Stirling Messenger Bag. The company is based in London, but I got it in a few days. To my surprise, their U.S. office is in Brentwood, Tennessee, not far from my home.

What’s inside? Here are the items I mention in the video, in roughly the order I present them:

To see how I pack all this up, you can watch the video. I want to acknowledge that this is a work-in-process. I continue to fine-tune as I go.
