Travel Carry for India

I’m off to India on a business trip and have carefully compiled my travel carry that I’ll be sharing with you today.  I’ll be spending more time outdoors on this trip compared to my trip to Malaysia, so my carry needs to reflect these uses. I’ve focused on packing tools that are reliable, easy to reach for and will take a beating if necessary, as well as including a couple of new products.
