This is my current IRL Live Stream Backpack setup. I’ve been IRL / outdoor streaming for over a year, and in my opinion, this list represents the best bang for the buck, without going into very advanced setups. It’s uses ONLY FREE software. No monthly costs (other than your data plan). Not all links on the list represent exact models that I’m using, but they’re close enough. Here are some details before we get into the equipment:
