Highlights from the Timbuk2 "What’s In My Bag" Tumblr

Share

"What's In My Bag" articles have become so popular these days that they're evolving into a full-blown independent media genre. It's a topic we often cover here at B&H, and everyone from National Geographic to The Verge has contributed to the trend. What you can discern about someone by examining the contents of their to-go bag is always a fascinating exercise, and the images can inspire unique solutions to your own in-the-field workflow needs.

Putting one and one together, bag manufacturer Timbuk2 launched their What's In My Bag Tumblr blog in 2012, which is dedicated to the topic. Below are some of our favorite highlights from that site.
