    Let's see....this doesn't include my luggage for work travel.

    5.11 Rush 24 - former office/daily pack
    5.11 Rush 72 - overnight/camping trip bag
    5.11 Covrt 18 - new less tactical daily rig
    LAPG Bailout Bag - gym bag
    LAPG Jumbo Bailout Bag - former college graduate assistant bag

    Thinking about picking up a 5.11 NBT duffle at some point...or maybe a couple of 5.11 ammo mules to replace the LAPG gym bag.

    • MSM Adapt pack.
    • Direct Action Dragon Egg
    • Tactical Tailor Modular Operator Pack
    • Berghaus Verden 65+10 Rucksack
    I use the modular operator pack for my bug out, and the msm adapt for my work bag and the dragon egg for work & gym. I use a tactical Taylor admin pouch and a maxpedition Janus as modular inserts. I find the dragon egg to be the best balance of size and functionality (also it looks the shizz). I tried a few 5.11 bags (rush 72 and messenger and moab 10) but sold them because they were too heavy. I also tried the TAD litespeed but sold it in a week because of its lack of internal organisation and tangle of straps.

    My present load out is my perfect balance of weight and functionality. I use pouches only as inserts as I am of the opinion that too many pouches (if any) on a bag can be counter productive especially in a civilian setting. Saying that, I do use a condor EMT tear away pouch on my bug out bag. I try to keep my bags as small and light as possible for the use I give them, this also encourages me to keep an eye on what I carry.

    Check out the dragon egg, so far it has done well as a good all round bag. I made a review of the Dragon Egg.

    Here's my Vanquest IBEX-30 backpack set-up for a day at the range. The molle and velcro makes the bag very versatile.

    1. Daily is a foliage mollex from kifaru, stays are short enough to wear when riding my bike and long enough to carry the odd large box home
    2. Kifaru UZ - laying in wait as a future diaper bag
    3. Archive bags large hip bag - when I don't need a lot but need place for some repair kit and a ulock
    4. Kifaru navigator for extended travel

    I narrowed my herd to 3 bags
    - TAD Litespeed as an EDC
    - Millet 40L (I don't even know the model) for light hiking (meals, water, diapers for my 2 yo son, etc)
    - Millet 80L (same case, don't know the model) for heavier needs (same use but I can easily pack a tent, sleeping gear, etc...)

    The R12 have impeccable room and organziation and probably is more urban friendly in terms of look. Why put it in hybernation?
