Whenever I fly, I never check my diabetes supplies. Odin forbid something happen to my luggage, being without my insulin is not an option while those shenanigans get sorted out. The backpack I used to bring with me could comfortably fit my various diabetes supplies, DLSR, and laptop, and whatever else I deemed essential for carry-on purposes, but it’s always been a bit much for walking around. I’m sure all of that storage space would be ideal if I ever went camping, but walking around a city? I needed something a little less conspicuous.

Obviously this post skews to the men reading this since women typically have a purse or similarly structured bag to consider for their carry on, walkabout bag.

Finding the right means to carry diabetes essentials, technology essentials, and other essential essentials is a very personal endeavor – what do you all factor when deciding on the right bag for you?
