Hello H/A. As a photography major, I do a lot of travel by foot and by car and something of a recent acquisition is my badass new backpack from Lowepro, linked here,
which has a stupid amount of pockets and spots for all my camera gear which makes it a great central base. I also have a shoulder bag for when I am just taking a single item or two with me on lengthier walks or hikes which saves my back.
My trouble isn't so much my backpacks, but what to put inside to make sure they are successful.
Sometimes I am out and about for hours at a time and having some sort of protein bars to munch on would be good, but I'd like to get something that is genuinely refreshing and re-energizing, not just heavy and filling like some protein bars out there. What do you normally munch on?
I honestly don't think I will be bringing a bottle of water as it begins to add on tons of weight but maybe I can carry a small flask and fill it up with Gatorade or something to keep me going. What would you guys suggest to put into my flask? Also I need a flask.
Sometimes I do go on hikes however and carrying a decent flashlight would help for those darker sections of the forest or trails on a moonless night.
And what should I look at to offer protection from would be thieves. I have had a few creeps follow me in some rough neighborhoods, but nothing confrontational yet.
And could there be something that I have possibly forgotten that you would think would be a good idea? Thanks folks.
