and this is the payoff post Five
Over the past 20 years, I've carried one or the other of these bags on most days. The one on the left has been my law bag since the mid 2000's. It carries office supplies like pencils, pens, and pads; personal items like gum, floss, and tissues; and files, phones and mp3 player to and from home, my office, and other places I work. I took my time choosing the briefcase because I knew I’d be using it for many years.
On the right is my TV bag. I got this from a client and started using it in the early 90’s. It is packed with small tools (Leatherman, scissors, wire strippers, flashlights, make-up brush, crescent wrench, etc.), supplies (wire connectors, ear plugs, headphone covers, spare glasses, tape, cord, plastic bags and sleeving, lighting gels, C-47’s, lens wipes, sharpies, etc.), nutrition for long periods behind the camera. It also performed duty as a book bag during law school and was my original law bag. After I got the briefcase, it happily returned to service as my TV bag. I recently had the manufacturer in Vermont refurbish it and it is ready to serve me for the rest of my TV career.
These guys are always packed and ready to go as is an overnight bag that is packed for two or three-day gigs out of town.
