u/UlicBelouve · 7 pointsr/Defcon

I'm dispensing my advice from this being year seven, and from the angle of being a worker/support and manning a booth (go /r/dcdarknet) . Makes for a lot of walking and a lot of time staying put at a booth. (Note, I add and update this every year, and then save it because the question will always be asked again).

Fluids (if any tl:dr -- keep fluids up at all cost)

  • Water flask - Go and get a durable bottle that you'll use the whole weekend to refill. I have a couple of these water flasks You are going to want to drink the water down, and refill this when you can. I've found a lot of times there are water coolers, but the cups ran out. This flask tucks nicely into a bag or large pocket. Doesn't seem to leak or puncture.
  • Water additives - Go get something to add to your water for electolytes. Yes, you'll lose more than just water. Pack a small batch of something like these NUUN tablets and mix them into that water flask. Bonus, retain the little tube they came in to store lockpicks or whatever other little itmes you might accumulate.
  • Caffeine - you should do caffeine as the water additives. A lot of the "caffeine delivery systems" you will encounter will also dehydrate you. See the section on vitamins and drugs. There is also little refrigeration, so you'll just be drinking warm Mountain Dew. Get some caffeine with your meal if you need to.
  • Alcohol - you can use one of those water flasks to carry some booze. But one flask must be water at all times. I generally have two flasks on me, one of water, one of moonshine, etc. Minibottles are great too, you can get them at home and pack them into toiletries.

    Note: I've stopped drinking for the duration of the con, since it is easy to get into a bad spot, dehydrated, and I've got contests depending on my help (plus you get to see more cool things). Just my stance after six years, and probably why the goons don't drink on the job: not that they can't, just that they are responsible. If not responsible for anything, hell, you're in Sin City, do what you want.

    "The best things I put in my mouth all weekend of DEFCON":

    These natural throat losenges are great. I gave out all that I had to the good people working booths, and got the quoted reaction. It helps for just socializing an talking for hours and hours in the desert, and getting your voice back.


  • Protein - it's just natural energy. Get some protein bars, eat one each morning. Beef jerky works out well too. A lot of people crowd breakfast places, when you should be lining up for awesome things instead. You should also match this with water/electrolytes. It'll fuel you for the day.
  • Sugar - yeah, don't really load up on this. You'll just crash at the most inconvenient time. This ties into the sodas/caffeine thing.
  • Chips and General Snacks - sure, find these somewhere if you have to. Best place is offsite, head towards the Tuscany, and there's a 7Eleven over there. Or do a run with people to Wal-Mart or something. If you're doing that, get PB&J ingredients.


  • Multivitamins - Get some multivitamins, and start taking them now or in the month leading up to DEFCON. I generally get StressTabs Energy and take them to keep me on my game. Combats hangovers well.
  • Vitamin D - this also rocks, and most of us won't see the sun for a few days anyways.
  • Hangover additives - again, back to that water flask. Use some sort of tablets like these I like tablets, because then you'll drink water. Just packing tylenol/asprin will generally get you to take a swallow of water with the pill, when you really should get a full flask of fluids, or more.
  • Anti-diarrhea drugs. I know there is the fun of Shittercon, but you eat some bad party food or share a flask with someone that has some bug, you'll rather have the anti-diarrhea drugs than become a Shittercon VIP. Plus, diarrhea dehydrates you in the desert.


  • Ethernet cable - you'll at least want to try to be on wired vs wireless. Plus, you can connect into LAN Taps, etc., should anything like that arise among your buddies.
  • Laptop? - My thoughts, bring something. I've had years where I didn't use it. But having the ability to look something up, examine a forensics challenge, is useful.
  • Thumbdrives - useful for a LiveCD boot, and also useful if you need to take files that are being distributed. Copy off a new distro or a tool that is released. Again, be safe with taking files from strangers.
  • Battery charger - small and large works for me. These are also handy for providing a charge to any pis, badges, or random devices you might use.
  • Batteries - you'll have electronic badges, and the batteries provided might suck. Bring some good and fresh ones. The few spots that sell them charge an outrageous amount. I'm talking AAAs, AAs, CR2032s.
  • Solder gear - bring a soldering iron if you can. You're dealing with a lot of the cheapest irons being used by people with varying degrees of skill. The tips can get kinda janky too. Using a bad tip that is about the shape of a pencil ERASER is gonna be a frustrating time for you.
  • Solder gear pt 2 - If not bringing an iron, bring support items. Bring better solder. Bring better solder wick, solder sucker, desolder braid, flux. Also bring a flush cutter to cut the wires. That small list of stuff is invaluable and can fit in a ziplock bag. HHV generally provides cheap irons with bad tips and the lowest-grade solder. (No fault to them, they're setting it up free, and the tips simply get bad from heavy use).
  • I've never done a throwaway or burner phone. Lock down / harden your phone and back it up / take an image before you go, and restore from it after. If anyone wanted to target you bad, you're going to have a bad time regardless of what phone you have, but there are probably softer targets anyways. And make friends, don't give people a reason to come after you and your phone should be fine.


  • Footwear - bring two sets of con footwear. I have super-comfy things, but I use two, because sometimes your feet just need to be in something different.
  • Bags - don't be a damn turtle. I usually either carry what I need in my Utilikilt, or use a small slingbag such as the Bag of Holding and you can add to any bag a Grid-It system , as this 8x12 fits well. Helps keep smaller things organized, and I also use it to organize charging cables, with the battery at the bottom, and the device able to connect up top.
  • Bags (2017 Addition) - This BUBM organizer / bag is outstanding, and I keep this in my bag now instead of (or sometimes in addition to) the Grid-It.

    Prepare Thyself

  • Start drinking your water now or in the month leading up to DEFCON, just to get the habit up. I scripted a box that pops up at my work computer every hour to have me finish my water and refill.
  • Start doing drugs. I mean, the multivitamins referenced above, and vitamin D.
  • If you want to brush up on first aid, or even Wilderness First Aid (for when aid might be a bit distant, which kind of happens in the craziness of the con), and have the means to do so, please do. It'll help us and your fellow con goer.

    Some last notes:

  • This is not to scare you out of the horrors of the con. It is not that bad, just Be Prepared is all that.
  • If you're having a shit time and can find me (I will make myself identifiable as Belouve), I'll help you out. Goons are also good people too.
  • If Official Defcon peeps like /u/DTangent or /u/1o57 or the mods want to pin or use my tips somewhere, feel free to do so. I might copy this to my GitHub so I can reference, update, and copy/paste this easier.

Honestly just get a neutral color backpack that has the space you need. I have a gray North Face that I love.

I spent years as a consultant working with guys that had VCDX, CCIE etc. Everyone wore nice clothes but carried a backpack, because nothing looks more unprofessional than not having a tool you need, whether its a light extension cord, tiny screw driver to change out a new nics faceplate or a usb to serial to console cable.

Get one or two gadget organizers (that is literally what I searched on Amazon to find it) to hold stuff so that you can just slide it in or out of your backpack if you know you arent going to need it and so that you don't have to dig around.

u/gaatu · 3 pointsr/onebag

Somthing I really like that keeps the form factor of what you linked is Bagsmart's Tech organizer. One thing I would say, though, is that it's geared more towards tech and wcables/wires.

u/qwertzhertz · 3 pointsr/Android

Not an app, but the only solution I have found.
External Battery

u/alkasm · 3 pointsr/onebag

I just bought one of these which is pretty cool for organizing odds and ends. They are a little heavy though. But they make smaller ones, too.

Aside from that get some organizer bags. You can just use ziplocks if you want. I've got one of these and it holds a ton of stuff. Plenty of other similar things around as well.

u/Odd_Doodles · 3 pointsr/mechanicalpencils

Hi there! It is this case: BUBM Double Layer Electronic Accessories Organizer, Travel Gadget Carry Bag, Perfect Size Fit for iPad Mini (Medium, Black)

u/poopsocker · 3 pointsr/EDC

For the lazy (like me), there are a wide variety of these kinds of organizers out there that you don't have to make yourself. E.g.:

Though the DIY version is definitely cooler and better for bragging rights.

u/ChanMc · 3 pointsr/bulletjournal

BUBM Portable Waterproof Travel Cable Organizer Storage Bag, Electronics Accessories Travel Organizer Carrying Case for Laptop Accessories, Hard Drive

u/bbartokk · 3 pointsr/modular

I am using this case for all my cables. The short 6" cables are stacked on one side, I can fit 24 and they look like this. The larger pockets I roll up the longer cables and put them in there. I also use the pockets to hold passive mults, tools, and misc. equipment.

u/BeanBagKing · 3 pointsr/AskNetsec

There's plenty of recommendations for bags here, but what I found more useful, regardless of the bag, is a couple of these:

They come in a variety of sizes and models, not just the two seen on that page. They're amazing for organizing all those individual little connectors, cables, and dongles.

u/whitealchemy · 3 pointsr/bulletjournal

Based on this sub's recommendation, I just bought this:

I LOVE IT! It holds all my essential pens, my two journals, a lot of extra tools (erasers, my washi, a selection of markers I need for the month, a ruler, scissors, etc.). Super convenient! I keep additional markers and pencil crayons on my desk in little cube boxes, like this:

u/ohhellopia · 3 pointsr/malelivingspace

My junk drawer was full of random cables. Even though they were neatly bundled (each), they're still all over the place. I ended up getting an organizer that is specifically made for cables. Since you have items larger than cables, maybe something like [this] ( might be useful. The key is you should be able to easily scan and find the item you are looking for without having to dig under a ton of stuff.

u/nerdchampion · 2 pointsr/organization

In general, I wrap all cables using the over, under method. It’s the best way to organize cables.

For personal use: I have a traveling cable bag. BUBM Double Layer Travel Gear...

For office/home office: I use stackable bins that don’t have lids so I can reach in and grab the cable I need. I also label my bins with the type of cable. Ex. USB-C to DP or Cat6 cables.

u/Newbosterone · 2 pointsr/flashlight

Last time I camped, the RV down the lane had something cool. It was a shelf made by mounting a 12" 1x6 on the wall, with a 1x3(?) mounted to the bottom. Then he ran 1 1/2" elastic across the 1x6 about 3" up. The elastic was pulled "not quite tight".

Pull the elastic out, set the flashlight in on the 1x3, let the elastic hold the light. I'd imagine it would hold a headlamp as well. The one on the RV had cup hooks for hanging the dog's leash.

If I were putting it on a boat, I'd probably use 2 rows of elastic. For that matter, you could mount this as the backboard.

u/beley · 2 pointsr/mac

This one: BAGSMART Electronic Organizer Small Travel Cable Organizer Bag for Hard Drives, Cables, Phone, USB, SD Card, Black

u/R_Beccca · 2 pointsr/ManyBaggers

Nothing fancy but I got this one for daily commuting cord and pen/pencil, flash drive management.

u/justaliv3 · 2 pointsr/Goruck

This one: Bag Smart

I use it everyday. Have all my cables, external battery charger, field notes, pen. If you want to see what's inside let me know.

u/wrong_-_username · 2 pointsr/EDC

I love my TB Medium Cafe Bag. I take it everywhere also. Mine is the burnt orange color. I haven't used the Freudian Slips at all, but that looks super convenient.

This bag fits almost perfectly into the front zipper pouch.
Hynes Eagle Travel Universal Cable Organizer Electronics Accessories Cases for Various USB Phone Charger and Cable Grey

u/Hussar305 · 2 pointsr/onebag

I use a similar pouch to this that lives in my work backpack. If I'm taking a trip, it just moves between bags. My laptop charger stays in a separate pocket.

I've been able to fit the following in it comfortably:

  • 3ft Lightening Cable
  • 3ft Micro USB cable
  • 6" Micro USB Cable
  • 6ft USB C Cable
  • Car Charger
  • Wall Charger
  • 1TB Harddrive
  • Dell DA200 Adapter
  • Headphones
u/SeekHunt · 2 pointsr/ManyBaggers

Sure thing! BAGSMART Electronics Organizer Double-Layer Travel Cable Organizer Cord Organizer Bag Accessory Organizer Storage Bag for 7.9" iPad Mini, Wires, Chargers, Hard Drive

u/elliot93c · 2 pointsr/photomarket


Here is the link to the one I have

u/RaptorMan333 · 2 pointsr/videography

This is just an example. i have no idea if that individual one is a good buy. But there are hundreds of little electronics and cable cases on there that you can sort through and find one that fits the size and needs that you're after. Some of them are hard shell if you want to just toss it in with other things.

u/NYSEA · 2 pointsr/EVERGOODS

This one fits like a glove in the front exterior pocket and horizontally in the mesh pocket with some room on top.

u/ishakakhan · 2 pointsr/onebag

My setup:

Bagsmart Organizer - for all electronics and non-liquid toiletries (electric toothbrush, chargers, floss, etc.).

Muji 3-1-1 Case - for all liquids/pastes/gels.

u/Soggy_Stargazer · 2 pointsr/consulting

I picked up one of the new GaN 61W PD USB-C jobs.

Its much smaller than the stock power adapter(2"x2"x1").

Picked up a nice 6 foot USB-C cable to go with it.

Stock power adapter stays at home, new little guy lives in my cord bag

I only carry USB-C chargers/cables and got little adapters for the three items I travel with that are micro-usb.

Mouse(MX Anywhere 2) stays with the computer.

u/chapter42 · 1 pointr/EDC

It's a bubm you can find them on Amazon in all kinds and sizes? This is an size M. I think I might have ordered another one from wish/aliexpress as well.

u/bleuiko · 1 pointr/backpacks

The CPL24 is one of my a favorite bag bags and still my EDC; the lack of organization is definitely a negative. I currently use this organizer which fits perfectly in the front:

I don't love it though but I tried many things and this one works best.

u/xSxHxAxRxPx · 1 pointr/EDC

I cut off the logo, it was just stitched on, and cut the stitching on one of the mesh pockets that was making it into two smaller pockets when I needed one bigger pocket to accommodate my battery pack. Other than that, it's perfect for what I use it for: cords, chargers, flashdrives, and a battery back. I keep it in my backpack.

u/FaZe-Cube · 1 pointr/iphone

I don’t know of a case that can carry the dongle, I guess this would help

u/LamboForWork · 1 pointr/digitalnomad

I use this. People swear by it. It's alright to me. It does the job.

BAGSMART Double-Layer Travel...

u/forangejuice · 1 pointr/raspberry_pi

Thanks man! Would these work? this , this , or this

u/StahpitDude · 1 pointr/backpacks

I’d normally recommend a MOLLE pouch for any extra pouches or space you may want, but since your pack isn’t compatible, any pouch will do for smaller items.
Considering how much you’re carrying, I’m not sure 17 liters is enough, but in any case, Id recommend the peak design tech pouch for a be-all-end-pouch that has great organization and overall build quality.

Peak Design Tech Pouch (Black)

  • but if 60$ sounds too steep for a tech organizing pouch (which it is in all honesty...), try the Bagsmart Organizer which is at a more modern 15$~

    BAGSMART Electronic Organizer Travel Universal Cable Organizer Electronics Accessories Cases for Cable, Charger, Phone, USB, SD Card, Black

    Other than that, I’d personally recommend get an Art Day pack or Tech pack as they have the liters to better suit all the items you’ll be carry imo.
u/azpleasant · 1 pointr/ManyBaggers

I just got this one off Amazon. I am using it with my CPL24. Holds a lot and stays pretty slim.

u/tydaawwg · 1 pointr/cableporn

You should take a look at the GridIT they are awesome!

u/DividedBy_Zero · 1 pointr/RetroPie

I picked up a case similar to this on eBay for about $11, and it managed to fit two 8bitdo NES30 Pro controllers (along with charging cables), my Pi, adapter, and a 6-ft HDMI cable, and still had some room left over. My only issue with it is that it's a soft case, but for the price, and the fact that it's the size of a grade-school lunchbox, it works.

u/darth_cire · 1 pointr/Goruck

I have several different sizes of these Bagsmart organizers and they work very well. This particular one has customizable Velcro walls (which you can attach extra patches to also) bagsmart

u/firestorm_v1 · 1 pointr/sysadmin

I use a collection of cable organizers and HAK5 bags (I got a bunch in a promo ages ago). I have one for the datacenter that has datacenter specific things, then I have a general purpose bag, then I have my pentest kit, each bag has its own role and set of tools. They all fit in my backpack pretty uniformly, I can carry up to five (and my handheld) before I run out of space but then again, that's a lot of tools and gear, too..

Bags like this one (as a representative sample, I don't own *this* bag but ones like it)

u/abhiroopb · 1 pointr/onebag

This is really going to depend on how much stuff you have. You should buy something that is pretty much exactly the size you need. Personally, I carry 3 cables, a plug, some small adaptors, and a powerbank.

So this bag: Hynes Eagle Cord Organizer

Was perfect for my purposes. It's also really cheap so u don't really care what happens to it.

u/djeclipz · 1 pointr/Surface

I'm looking for something like this, but built into a larger bag that could hold the Surface...

u/Strapp342 · 1 pointr/CGPGrey
u/Bangs42 · 1 pointr/EDC
u/rustywarwick · 1 pointr/onebag

Good suggestions! For me, I just prefer that my EDC be a messenger and realistically, I almost never need something bigger than 10-15L for daily use so having a bigger EDC (15-20L+) and then throwing a laptop case/sleeve in there seems redundant if I'm already toting a smaller EDC to begin with.

The one exception would be for travel purposes where something like that Lihit Lab sleeve might be useful to use with a packable daypack. I've also thought about getting this TomToc laptop organizer.

u/BeCalmAndLetItBe · 0 pointsr/ipad

Here's another option. Look at all those cable organizers!
