Chris and Daniel’s Bags from the Two Weeks in Japan Videos

Back in late August, we posted a couple fantastic videos courtesy of Chris from SHEP Films (the folks who worked with us on our Smart Alec, Tri-Star, and Everyday Carry videos) in which he and his traveling companion, Daniel, detail what they packed for a two week family trip to Japan. Although Chris and Daniel mention the bags and accessories they use by name, we figured it would be handy to have everything compiled into one list along with at which point in the packing video these things can be found. See the packing video below, along with the list of everything used.
