I like to travel as minimalist as possible. The same goes for the gear I use. The lighter the better. The more discrete the better. Check out what I use for filming, editing, packing, and health insurance.

iPhone 13 Pro
It’s amazing the power of the camera on the new iPhones. I prefer to use the iPhone 13 pro as it is small, but shoots great footage.
DJI OM 5
For solo travelers and video makers, this is your best friend. It’s a selfie stick, and tripod all in one, plus much more!
Saramonic Blink 500 Mic
I don’t like to stand out when I’m traveling, but I still want that quality sound. This mic is subtle and attaches to my clothes easily, but is not too obvious. (Make sure to select iphone or Android)
DJI Mavic Mini
This small, lightweight drone is easy to carry with you on short trips, and long trips alike. Keep it in the case, or put it in your pocket. However, if I were to do it again, I would get the Mini 2 instead.
These are soft, comfortable, blue tooth, noise canceling!
I love this since it sits so snugly to the computer, I don’t have a bunch of extra wires, and it works for connecting to tons of items.
I did a ton of research before purchasing this and I am absolutely in love. This is the best carry-on luggage I’ve ever used. I named mine Roy.
These cubes make packing so much better. I get a lot of packing anxiety, but feeling organized really helps me out a lot.
Cotopaxi Allpa 35L
I’m in love with this backpack, absolutely one of my best travel purchases. It’s perfect for a weekend trip, and fits easily in the overhead compartment. It even has a side storage for your laptop. It came with me on the Salkantay Trek to Machu Picchu. Plus, I love the company’s motto.
This tote back is perfect for one day hikes. You can convert it from a side to a backpack super easily. Has convenient pockets and compartments. Super light material makes it easy to bring along.
This bag from Tortuga is on my dream travel check list. I don’t own it yet, but one day it will be mine, oh yes, it will be mine. Strong, durable, and so many compartments.
Topo Designs Mountain Pack
I love to support my fellow Coloradans, and I’m proud to support Topo Designs. Love the durability, and color schemes of all their products.
This editing program, by far, has been the most intuitive I’ve ever used. Now that I’ve found Adobe, I’ll never go back to anything else.
Ever since I started using Epidemic Sound (foley & music) for my YouTube videos, I’ll never go back to the basic library again.
Better to be safe than sorry! Besides, a lot of countries require health insurance for entry! This is the company I always use.
