What's in our bags
We’ve been traveling full time since early 2016 and fine tuned our gear to make life on the road a bit easier, help us capture content, and keep us looking stylish on the golf course.
We’ve hand picked each one of the items listed below and only recommend what we personally use and love. There is a "find it here" button located below each product (and sometimes discount codes too!). These buy buttons are affiliate links from Amazon and other awesome companies. An affiliate link simply means that if you click through and purchase (costs you nothing extra) we get a small percentage, too.
If you enjoy and find value in what we do here on The Dapper Drive, shopping through these links is a great way to help us continue creating and sharing content for you!
DJI 3 Professional drone
From golf courses to beach-side campgrounds, we use this drone to capture high-quality images and video from the air. Fly time around 23 minutes and 4K camera.
GPC drone case
If you're going to invest in a drone, it only makes sense to keep it well protected while not in the air. This heavy duty case does just that.
Extra drone battery
Average flight time per battery is around 23 minutes, so having a few extras is key to flying longer to capture the content we need out on the golf course.
Canon 5d Mark iii
We use this camera for most of the golf course images and video you see on the website. It's full frame, fast and gives us high quality imagery.
Canon 24-70mm lens
This is our go to lens 80% of the time on and off the course. The wide angle is great for capturing more of the golf course to zooming in closer to details.
Sigma 35mm lens
With an aperture of 1.4mm, we use this one more in the RV for lower light scenarios. It's sharp and fast.
Canon 70-200mm lens
Brittany uses this one on brand shoots for clothing to really make the background blurry and the clothes stand out. We also use it when traveling to capture wildlife from a distance.
Wireless Shutter Release
This lets us both get in the frame when no one is around to take our picture. And we get to avoid worrying about setting the timer over and over again. Easy to take self portraits.
Tripod and drag head
No matter how steady your hand, the tripod and drag head work wonders for video pans. It's also great for getting us both in the frame when no one else is around to take our picture.
We use this camera for on the go instead of carrying our bigger Mark iii. It's really great for videos and vlogging. The screen flips up and you can see what you look like on camera.
What's in my golf bag
Titleist golf clubs
I'm not overly bias toward any one equipment brand, but I currently play Titleist clubs throughout the bag.
Titleist Pro V1 x golf balls
My current go-to golf ball. I tend to spin the ball quite a bit, so I play the "X"
Hands down the most fashionable and functional head covers out there.
Bluegrass Fairway yardage book holder
If you're after a handcrafted, genuine leather yardage book holder, this is the one for you.
Douglas Rose leather bags
Hand-crafted Italian leather bags built to withstand the test of time. These are more than just a bags -- they are world-class heirlooms that will carry your stories to the next generation & beyond.

Favorite golf brands
Self-described "disruptive luxury," G/FORE apparel and gear offer a modern take on golf fashion. Bold colors, forward designs and a trim fit define this great brand.
A laid-back Austin, Texas based brand that's putting a modern twist on the vintage country club polos of the past. Ideal for an afternoon nine or a backyard BBQ with the boys.
AG Green Label
Chic designs and luxury fabric characterize the AG brand. The apparel has a nice trim fit and looks good on and off the golf course. One of my go-to brands.
Devereux's tag line "proper threads" is very fitting as this Scottsdale based company has created a line of golf and resort wear with a moderately trim fit.
FootJoy Rain Gear
It's not the most fun playing in bad weather, but it's even less fun being unprepared. I believe every golfer needs to invest in top notch rain gear.
RV gadgets and upgrades
4 stage converter/battery charger
We upgraded our factory converter to this one so we can get a fully charged battery much faster and efficiently.
(2) 6v Lifeline 220 AH deep cycle batteries
Our factory 12 V battery didn't let us boondock for more than 24 hours without needing to be charged so we upgraded to top of the line battery bank.
Verizon hotspot for internet on the go
A lifesaver? Yes! This is our go-to for internet on the road. We have an unlimited plan, which gives us internet access from just about anywhere.
Solar lights for boondocking
The perfect solution when you're in need of some extra light! Small, compact and lightweight - these put off a nice amount of light after being charged from the sunlight during the day.
Fantastic fan when there's no AC
When we aren't plugged into electricity (which is often) the AC isn't available to use. To keep cooler air circulating in the RV, we use this for an endless breeze. It keeps us all cool in warm temperatures.
We spend a lot of time out and about, and take our dog Ella every chance we can. However, this camera works perfectly for those times we can't bring her along (i.e. golf course!) The camera works via wifi and can be viewed on your phone. It also has two way voice.
Showerhead to reduce water usage
Filling our RV tanks is always a concern, so we purchased this shower head to reduce water usage to 3 gallons a minute while still offering great water pressure. It saves us from having to constantly fill our RV tanks on the go.
Water faucet knobs to reduce water usage
This is a cheap upgrade with a big impact. Another great gadget for reducing water flow on RV faucets, especially while doing the dishes.
When not plugged into an electrical source, only our DC plugs draw from the battery. This inverter lets us use some of our AC powered gear like computer chargers.
We tend to watch more Netflix than traditional TV, but this antenna allows us to get the channels and watch our favorite shows live from time to time.
Battery powered fan
Small fans ideal for helping air circulation on those warmer days. Opening the windows and placing a fan near them helps to keep the RV cool without having to be plugged in.
