We should get a "welcome back, zoidberg" patch too!

Except nobody would buy that.

Somebody's had a rough day/week/month/year/decade/life, it seems...

Yes.
Everyone, do feel free to let me know when I'm negatively impacting your forum experience.
Cheers.

Hooked, like everyone else. :D

... If anyone has any ideas or specific features they would like to see, let me know and I'll try to keep it all in mind when I'm poking about.  :D

Well... *Takes a deep breath*

Plenty of little things, really. They do add up and that’s part of the problem.

-   A shaped bag, about 30-40lt. with a boxy frame, let’s say around 45*35*30cm. and preferably not black but that’s the last thing for now.
-   Wide zippers, protective flap optional.
-   Wide, padded straps, maybe with some sort of reinforcement inside (a plastic sheet?), perhaps slightly contoured. Better avoid yoke style?
-   Padded back, relatively rigid.
-   Removable sternum straps or at least adjustable as to height.
-   Removable waist straps.
-   Protective layer on the outer bottom side, double layer of fabric at least.
-   Double stiches everywhere.
-   Minimal use of mesh pockets, preferably only on the interior side.
-   Two main compartments minimum, one to two smaller outer compartments are welcome. At least one bottle holder pocket on the outer side. A quick access outer slot and a small items pocket would be nice.
-   Hard wearing material for interior pockets, maybe of different colour than the bag. Double stiches everywhere.
-   Some MOLLE webbing.
-   600 den fabric -cordura?- and up.

That’s all I have for now :ahhh

Oh, and a couple of compression straps. That goes without saying!

You forgot the part where you insist that all of that has to come in at less than $60!   :ahhh

Me:    "$75 Canadian apiece, shipped to each buyer. Buy two and get a third one for free."
Them: "Suure, we can do that, at a quarter-million bags."

If they threw in a decent rain cover for free, that'd be great :whistle: :D

Backpacks are useful, maybe you should start looking at some. :pok: :angel:

Just buy expensive, that's what you should've been taught by now!

Buy now or regret later

Huh? I was taught that the best knife-based multitools are cheap.    ;)

Yes, but because of that you buy multiple.

I'm open to suggestions  :) I understand that cheap or expensive in a function of cost/use derived/affordability.

Actually, I'm pretty happy with my two large backpacks that cost me €45 (Mil-tec Patrol pack) and 60€ (Pentagon Re-Storm) respectively. I just can't use them for urban EDC because of their size, mainly. Several of the higher end bags I've seen didn't meet some of my criteria, price being one of them (if I pay more than €100 for a bag I expect it to bring me breakfast in bed every morning).

If you mean SAKs I agree: they hold excellent value  :climber:
