Executive Protection Travel Pack: Things to Consider

Executive Protection Travel Pack: Things to Consider

As is common with us all, we love our gear and we can’t get enough. A common discussion in our Facebook group, The Executive Protection Network, is travel gear and equipment. While not meant to be a comprehensive or ‘cookie-cutter’ list, below I share a typical packing of my ‘go-bag’ which I hope you all find useful; at least as a good baseline to add/subtract from for your travel needs.

My most commonly used bag is The North Face Recon Backpack, which was reviewed previously. Below are a series of picture with display the contents I typically travel with.
Note: Personal items (like clothes) are not discussed in this article. See the Dress Code article for more information.

On the outside pouches, I have a water bottle on one side and hand-sanitizer, sanitizing packets, napkins and IPAK (when not on my belt) on the other. In the center top pouch, I put the things I need quickly and frequently on flights or in a vehicle: charging accessories, lens wipes, chapstick and vent mount, etc.


In the secondary pouch, I have: a Go-Ruck Wire Dopp with all of my charging accessories for my phone and others, head sets, duct tape/e-tape/550 cord, laptop charger, and PowerAll accessories; DMR/Analog radio and charger; Rite-in-the-Rain notebook, pens and pencils; tactical pen; flashlight; PowerAll; SwissTech Tools Bodygard; noise cancelling ear buds, cell phone chargers, Breath of Life Masks; (If traveling internationally, I will also pack a Smoke/CO detector) Quest Protein bars; gum and cough drops; small bottle of Rain-X; tire pressure gauge; credentials and business cards.
