For PCMag’s mobile team, Mobile World Congress in Barcelona is the biggest week of the year. The huge trade show at the end of February is going to bring us the Samsung Galaxy S9, as well as many of the hottest phones and technologies the year. This huge show is going to require me to stay on my feet pretty much constantly for five days straight, shooting, writing, and uploading video.
Over the years, I’ve learned to value a lightweight kit and a bag with good back support. A trade show is a marathon, not a sprint, and I don’t intend to hit a wall at mile five. Here’s what I’m taking in my gear bag to Barcelona.
