I carry an Under Armour Storm. 30.7 liter size ( 18" x 13" x 8")Plenty of room for my tablet, a notebook, a spare pair of pants, my spare Leatherman and SAK, small surefire 60, two 32 oz (1liter each) Nalgene water bottles, sunglasses, ace bandage, a baseball hat around the top handle, lunch, snacks, and various extras. 10 to 20 pounds depending, I guess. Sometimes I bike the 9 miles to work each way, and it does fine.

I single strap it, but obviously have the option of 2 strapping - better overall for the back.

Back in the day I carried a currier sling bag. Those are fine but you should swap shoulders periodically

I EDC a Maxpedition Fatboy Versapack S-Type (the left-side carry version, being that I'm left handed).

I got a Jumbo Versipack first, and it was just too big.

I have a backpack in my car for emergencies, a High Sierra Cirque 30, I think.

But when I need a general use light backpack, I go for a green Jansport Ready pack. That thing is straight up indestructible. And should it ever fail, they replace them. Lifetime Warrantee.

Even tho Lynn busted my chops for my murse, I dont carry a bag at all.  I find them much to cumbersome.  I tried hard to convince myself to try.  I have a sling bag and put some items in it but I just cannot bring myself to use it everyday.  Back in the day tho I did rock a bum bag.

Most anyone who carries a backpack around here carries either tactical or camo so it fits in here fine :think:

Yeah, I see a lot of tactical style bags in use on a regular basis here in Indiana. Saw a guy carrying a Maxpedition Versipack of some kind at the doctor's office not long ago.

I live in a big military city and also see a lot of tactical bags.  I think at some point they disappear with all the other backpacks.

It’s about the size of a small bifold. Think small bifold might even be a mili longer

GORUCK GR1 rucksack works well for me for office and travel. Perfect size for stashing underneath the airplane seat and doesn’t look too tactical but still has a bit of molle. Great warranty but I will say because of the tougher material they use it is slightly heavier than most back packs.

Expensive, but if you sign up on their site and check it regularly they have special sales. That’s how I got mine. They have other packs of different sizes too.

But I hear you about a sling pack. I had one from Maxpedition and when fully loaded hurt my shoulder.

I cannot exist without my backpack. ATM I carry one which is designed for carrying notebook computers, so it doesn't suit my needs much, but still a backpack is a backpack.  :multi:

The id, the other pretty much just carries junk, medical stuff, and a few other things, unlike the id one, has my $$, id, and important cards..

I carry one every day of you consider going from house to truck to a different house or business and back to house carrying?
I need Windows PC with an actual Serial Port and a Mac all the time for service along with a tiny HDMI monitor and some other pricey doodads so I carry them in and out every day unless I forget.

Most recently I have been carrying the Evade for more than a year and it is about perfect for my needs and light enough to not hamper me actually carrying through airports as needed.
Great really well made bag with good organization AND Bottle Pockets that really work for bottles!

I use mine as more of a backup  in a spare truck and don't really have it loaded up completely yet but it is a nice bag overall for sure.
I like how wide open it can get and lay flat and even loaded up still feels pretty light weight overall.

Love the Camo too!

Awesome, thank you for the ideas.    Im sure I will still use my other one as daily, but looking forward to setting this one up for my tools.  might try it as a more portable knife/tool storage instead of my apache case.

Yeah buying mine was just a way to delay buying the Veto Pack anyway which I have a feeling is not too far off?

And Plumber its good to see you again,wondered where you wandered to?
