    Hi all from the beautiful Jersey Shore (the real jersey shore, not those clowns on MTV)


    Been reading a few threads on the forum and decided to become a member and put up my first post.

    I have been EDC'ing for a few years now and am looking to upgrade/reconfigure my setup. Looking for some guidance from the experienced folks around here.

    I am a big Maxpedition fan. (I currently EDC a Jumbo S-Type)

    See ya all around!

    Joe

    Thanks for the swell welcome all.

    Here's a question for you folks...

    Would to recommend someone select a bag after you get all the contents you want to put in it...or build everything around a bag?

    I'd go with the first one but keep in mind the weight you are comfortable carrying everyday and the style of the bag.

    Welcome Tacnj!
    There have been a few threads on this precise subject. The general concensus was lay out your gear that you need (taking into consideration weight as noted by bud760) and then decide what will be appropriate. Dont forget to leave a little extra for what you pick up along the way as well.
    Good luck in your quest, and again......Welcome
