Search these forums for "missing inventory"  you will find a lot of advice.  Here is the wiki page http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Inventory_loss

What viewer are you using?  Try logging in with a different viewer and see if your items are there

It sounds like you are using the second life viewer.  You can try firestorm viewer.  Download here  https://www.firestormviewer.org/downloads/

Like @Cindy Evanier mentioned, there is Firestorm (which I've used for years), though there also is Catznip (which I recently switched to and LOVE.) It is lightweight like the LL Viewer and (for me) rezzes everything considerably faster than LL viewer or Firestorm.

Catznip doesn't have all the spy on others/hide from others features, but it does have amazing inventory-management features that all the others badly need. Anyway, the Firestorm link is above, the Catznip link is here: https://get.catznip.com/downloads

Here's a video that shows what I'm talking about:

While you can try a different viewer, and it's actually not a bad idea to have a couple (or more) different viewers available (if only to help in diagnosing problems), you don't have to.  Moreover, it won't fix the inventory problem with your current viewer.  Follow Cindy Evanier's original advice.

As you are finding out, there are a number of viewers compatible with Second Life. There are more than we'll point you to. Most of those we mention are safe. BUT, there are viewers that are for the purpose of theft... your password.

The Linden made default viewer is here: https://secondlife.com/support/downloads/

There are Release Candidate and Project viewers made by the Lindens: http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Linden_Lab_Official:Alternate_Viewers

The list of most third party viewers is here: http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Third_Party_Viewer_Directory

Firestorm is the most popular viewer. Somewhere between 60% and 80% of SL users are using Firestorm. They also have a Firestorm Support group that is VERY active. Good place for quick answers. They also have classes on the viewer. It has WAY more features than the Linden viewer. So, the classes are helpful.

It is a good idea to have to different brands of viewers installed for troubleshooting. Your inventory problem is a common problem that benefits from checking the inventory in different viewers. If one has inventory and the other does not, we know it is a viewer problem and which viewer needs repair. If neither has inventory, the Lab will need to help you.
