What's in your briefcase/bag?

  1. While I was sitting here in a Southfield, MI hotel room (week 2 of 5 up here) browsing a couple of forums I frequent and looking at briefcase and bag threads, I thought it might be interesting to see what everyone carries in their briefcase or bag. What is your briefcase or bag of choice? What do you carry? Share a picture if able.

    I'll be honest-mine is a little more stuffed than normal because I'm travelling at present. Apologies for the iPhone pics-it's all I had with me, and it does a better job than the Blackberry in the picture...


    • Saddleback Thin Briefcase in Chestnut
    • work Blackberry and power cord
    • iPhone charger and earbuds
    • iPod Nano (so I don't drain my iPhone on long flights)
    • noise cancelling headphones for flight in bag
    • electrical accessory bag for computer
    • power cord for computer
    • HP Elitebook laptop
    • sunglasses
    • water bottle
    • mini first aid kit (blue box)
    • leather padfolio
    • car keys and desk keys
    • gum
    • small Moleskine

  2. I used to live in Southfield, MI. Don't really miss it to be honest.

    Here is most of what I have, minus my iPad and/or laptop and stethoscope in a SBL thin briefcase.

    Some research items, books, opthalmo/otoscope, multitool, light, extra magazine, pens, power cords and headphones in the small pouch. Maybe some snacks at times.
  3. Also just posted this in the briefcase thread:
