    Today I introduce my self-composed Maxpedition Mini EDC Bag. Sometimes a Jumbo or similar bags are too big for Every Day Carry. So I composed a Mini EDC bag from Maxpedition stuff.

    You can see the details here: http://kurts.cc/edc-gear/taschen/mini-edc-bag/

    Looks good! My personal preference however is to carry all my stuff inside my bag with nothing showing...especially no knifes being visible, etc....I don't like to telegraph what I'm carrying to anyone.

    Nice. What is the main bag portion? Sorry, see your link. Duh.

    I have to admit, it would be too pursy-looking for me personally to carry over my shoulder, but with the shoulder strap off it would almost make a nice system that you could carry in your hand. Of course the downside there is that it takes up a hand. But going car to office to home, etc, it would be manageable.

    The key is what works for you. And if this works, then I'd go with it. O0

    Nice. I like it. compact and light but carries the essentials. I may have to do something similar. but for now I can't see giving up my 5.11 PUSH Pack.

    Funnily enough, Ive been toying with the idea making something similar for a while now.
    Im intending to use the Maxpud Large TacTile that arrived this morning (bought in the classifieds on "British Blades") as the main platform with (possibly?) my Tadgear OP1 on one side, & a cpl of (no-name-brand) pistol mag pouches & (another no-name-brand) Admin pouch on the other side. A tube sheath for a light would fit nicely on one end.

    Thanks for more ideas!

    I have kind of always done this on some level, but this kit inspires me to rethink some things about my kit.
    I tend to take a "layered" approach to EDC, and want try and "modularize" my bag a bit more.
    What I mean is, put inside my main bag a smaller bag, with just a few essentials. I already keep certain items either on my belt or in my pockets, like knives, flash light, keys, ect. I tend to put larger items in my bag like first aid, para-cord, duct tape, sewing kit, blah blah.

    So, why not have, in like a small shoulder bag, another break-down of the whole kit?
    Any Ideas?

    nice set up, Kurt. I've not seen the tac-tile bags used for anything before, just on the maxped website...that's neat.
    without the strap, it could be a semi-permanent set up and a drop in bag too...very inventive O0

    Normally the Maxpud Neatfreak is my go to EDC essentials carry but you gave me some thinking thoughts. I have the large Tactile but never thought to attach other pouches to it. Only to attach Tactile to larger packs. First came Surefire Lego. Now it's MOLLE Lego! :lolhammer: Thanks for the idea Kurt. This can be fun!

    i'm on board with the idea of taking many small pouches and pockets and sort of "build your own" backpack. usually i start with something a bit larger, like a plain style day pack, or smaller, and add from there. never thought of going THAT small of a "core" bag and adding from there. it's nice to see a few bags together to get an idea of relative size. just wish that there was a store near me that sold these in a store so i could see more hands on.
