    Field Pack. The field pack is the briefcase of the naturalist. It can carry field guides (not too many-they can get heavy) and containers for collecting things, journal, and many things that a naturalist may need on hand in the field. It can be a fanny pack, or a back pack or any other kind of bag that is convenient to carry in the field.
