The Estwind Geo Briefcase -- SEE INSIDE PHOTO BELOW



Geologists and other field workers usually need maps, aerial photos, reference materials, writing supplies and tools in the field. The Geo Briefcase is a great way to organize your office in the field. It is also a comfortable way to carry gear and small specimens.

  • Hammer holder on front flap.
  • Main compartment is about 15 inches wide by 6 inches deep by 14 inches tall.
  • Main compartment is divided into 3 two-inch wide compartments. (pictured below).
  • Dividers are flexible to allow a bit of expansion.
  • The back section contains a removeable chisel and tool holder. (pictured below)
  • The front of the main compartment has two slots for maps or papers plus spots for pens and pencils. (pictured below)
  • External water bottle holster on one side.
  • The other side has a zipper pouch (6" wide by 7" tall by 2" deep.
  • Velcro closure pouch above the zipper pouch.

Tips for Field Briefcase Users:


  • Better than a Backpack! If you have worn a backpack through a long, hot day in the field you know how much heat gets trapped between you and the pack. A briefcase-style bag does not trap as much heat. Also, the rocks in the bag will not be poking you in the back. This rock bag rides lower on your body and makes you more stable on uneven ground.

  • Topo Maps: We slip our folded topos (or aerial photos) between two pieces of cardboard. These protect our maps in the bag and serve as a small writing table for taking notes in the field. Tape your stratigraphic column to the cardboard for fast reference.

  • Rock/Mineral Specimens: When we collect small specimens we line the inside of one compartment with a small trash bag to keep the compartment clean. We also carry some cloth sample bags and yesterday's newspaper. Wrap specimens in the paper, put them into a sample bag and pull the draw string - this helps keep specimens in good shape until you get them home.

  • The Versatile Garbage Bag! We usually carry a large plastic garbage bag. Use it for wrapping unexpected specimens, keeping your gear dry, a dry seat during your lunch break, or poke a few holes in it to make an emergency raincoat!

  • Don't Wear it Like a Purse! If you are right-handed you will probably wear the bag on your left hip or on the left side of your behind. The shoulder strap should cross your chest and rest on your right shoulder.
