    Zephyr

    In this thread, post a list or pictures of What You Carry in your Zephyr. We will add your packing list to the Zephyr page to help give other people a better idea of what the bag can hold.

    I don't use this for paid work (I have a job that fortunately does not require a briefcase) but I use it for my voluntary marine biology work.

    Currently in my Zephyr:

    Front section: 2 dissecting kits
    Pen holders: (these neatly hold half inch glass vials which is very useful!) water samples for salinity testing for the area near a proposed desalination plant, an Antarctic sea urchin spine in a long vial, several other vials with miscellaneous specimens
    Attached to lanyard: a padded medium pouch with a couple of zip=lock bags inside for waterproofing my hearing aids in emergencies

    Main section:
    (a) an organiser from a Lowe Pro carry-on bag - think a Freudian Slip which has severely overdosed on steroids - it's a couple of inches thick) containing fisheries permits, national park collection permits, data sheets, volunteer sign-in book, large notebook, pad of label-grade paper, lots of pens, pencils and markers, scissors, laminated signs, pins, blutack, sticky tape and string for putting signs up
    (b) a horizontal Freudian Slip containing maps of the coastline, more pens etc, perspex straws for moving specimens from vial to vial, bits of paper from other people, and various other bits and bobs
    (c) a large display book with several hundred pages of photographs of the local sea slugs.

    Back section: large signs "marine survey in progress" that get attached to cars when we're working. Wooden board to cut bread on for lunch.

    I have an absolute strap on this - it weighs about 22 pounds.

    That's a lot of stuff! It's not a small bag.
