    Oh, I forgot to add, I also like Grid-It which allows for easy access to items, again they come in a range of sizes.

    Is that like a new brand of massive bag, for all the others?? :p

    When I took the Grid-it out of my EDC, my pack got much lighter. I switched to a couple zippered nylon bags. Not as impressive to other people, but my pack feels a ton better.

    39 assorted backpacks, duffel bags, hiking bags, travel luggage, and various small bags. Add a handful of pouches and I'm north of 45 at least...

    To be fair, a large portion are old or of poor quality, and most of them were given to me by work for travel. I've still got a camelbak from when I was in high school! I've spent my fair share though too, in no small part to members on this forum. Thanks guys!

    This thread actually made me realize I need to sell some, and donate others. So got them all out, took a picture, and threw about half of them into the sell/donate pile.

    I think I'm still keeping about 25. Still want to buy more too...

    This is what I keep handy in my office/gear room/man-cave. I have another dozen at least in the garage. I'd guess north of 30. Possibly 40 all told. My bags are more in the realm of climbing/skiing/mountaineering though, not general EDC. For EDC, I have a couple different Goruck bags and use those almost exclusively.

    Let's see:

    - Maxped Mongo as EDC-bag
    - Maxped Kodiak (although not in use since I totally don't like the pack... it was a failbuy for me...)
    - Magforce Super-Falcon that comes with me on all my hiking-trips
    - Maxped Colossus

    And I just ordered a Maxped Aggressor and am eagerly waiting for it to arrive at my home. How will I explain to my wife that I really NEEDED a new bag :(

    Yes - I'm a bag addict...

    I was explaining to my wife the reasons behind choosing a specific bag (GR2) for a trip when she said, "You have a different relationship with your bags than I do."

    I have 4.
    A Crumpler backpack, Crumpler Sling bag, Crumpler messenger bag and a versipack.
    None of them are tactical except for the versipack but they are pretty good for edc.
    I had 2 3 day assault packs when i was still into airsoft but i sold them. That's before I was into EDC.

    Now I'm thinking of getting a "tacticool" pack that can hold my everyday stuff and would look cool and comfortable when riding a motorcycle. I'm still choosing between a 5.11 Rush 12 or some cheap :censored: "tactical" bag so I still have some cash left to get a decent multi-tool.

    I'm interested in this Laser cut molle backpack but I can't get a name or review online.

    I take some comfort in knowing I'm not alone.

    My primary purpose for EDC was for day hikes in the AZ desert (year round). Hydration was at the top of the list for needs. I have several Camelbaks and a Geigerrig 700 day pack with the pressurized bladder.

    Now I'm leaning towards insulated bottles so I have the HPG Umlindi with the Recon belt on my radar. Already have an HPG Tara to dock to it for 2 or 3 day trips. Also have a couple HPG chest rigs. All good stuff.

    For the long and heavy hauls I have an external frame Seek Outside Paradox pack that will get the nod. I've only done a few 10 mile hikes with it loaded out and I'm very happy with the suspension system on it. Very comfortable.

    Also have a TAD Litespeed. And the Kifaru Antero is looking pretty good. I better quit now...

    1. REI flash
    2. Bigger REI 2200 Cu In for lightweight weekend backpack trips
    3. Kelty 3000 cu in for longer backpack trips
    4. North face Recon for day hikes / travel.
    5. Camelbak Dispatch for EDC
    6. Maxpedition Kiss versipak for lightweight EDC.

    I think that's it. They all have a purpose and I use most of them often.

    I don't find that the Grid-it adds much weight to my bag, and for me the convenience of not digging in the bottom of a bag for a USB is far outweighed by adding a Grid-it at a few extra grams to hold small items in one place.
