Hackers Accessories

In addition to a common mode of dress, there is a similar set of tool of the trade which many hackers can be found carrying. Often a black satchel (though many responses claimed green, no doubt in keeping with the hiking boots and chamois shirts) or military surplus shoulder bag is filled to overflowing with things which hackers must have to sustain their hacking lives when separated from their computers. A typical inventory might look like this:

More financialy equiped hackers can also be found with portable computers, Apple Newtons or other {PDA} devices, and expensive versions of the multitester (Fluke, is an example of this). A properly equipped hacker can continue to be immersed in a hack while sitting through an unusually boring lecture, or while on the bus.
