It is long overdue due to a busy personal life (marry, buy crappy house, rebuild, get kid, etc. Etc.) but now the little dragon sleeps and i can post an update to: first bag (bag-in bag concept) Second bag (just a bit to small) Third bag (not happy with lack of easy access, and comfort while carrying) So my edc bag at the moment is a ortlieb vario, which I Highly reccomend due to its durabilty, waterproofing and the combinded backpack panel and bikeframe holder: Then contents, the side pockets contain the basics: In the past i used a grid-it to organize this bag, now i moved to a large collection of "handbag organisers". (8 bucks from amazon) But first lunch: (Yes she is the cutest kid on thishere planet!) Then the basics bag, this goes everywhere, and it therefore swaps bags often. (No, it is not sturdy, I looked at the maxped triptych, but the price is ridiculous!) Content from top left to bottom right: -collection of pens (im not a pennophile) -micro usb cable -leatherman charge ti -Mechanical pencil and marker -bank identifier -leatherman bits -zippered pouch with sd cards, earbuds, thumbdrive, usb otg adapters etc. Main compartment with -mobile hardrive wrapped in a buff -notebook (i get mine from my wifes travels, this one is really really good!, made by "Waverley of Scotland") -first aid kit Zippered pouch with papers etc -Mobile powerbank -plastic shopping bag The last line of pouches is difficult to see from the top: So, thats the basics bag, (this post is not only long overdue, but long period.) Like I said i use this bag also on my bicycle to commute to work. (Because the netherlands.) And that means a lot of rain... (Because the Netherlands) So i use one of the sidepockets from my dragonslayer for this: It contains a raincoat and pants, overshoes and a packtowel. Below that, in the normal commute layout, I have another handbag organiser with repair stuff: - Bahco wrench - tire lifters - spare inner tire - gloves - pump - Cleaning wypes - old gerber legend 700 multitool Besides the basic layout above, I also have a emergency organiser (red) for serious problems, this I won't discuss. And a outdoor organiser: - Fallkniven f1 in custom kydex sheet from someone on this forum. (Thank you!!) - spiderco sharpening stone - fox40 whistle Parifinated cardboard in the zippered pouch to start a fire - 5meter of 6mm climing rope - 20mm of highvis paracord (at the bottom) - Baggy with toiletpaper, small shovel and hand sanitiser. - Fenix Flashlight with Traffic cone - foldable saw (bahco?) - insect repellent Im a scoutsmaster so this setup is mostly ment for that purpose, hence the toiletries... I have given up the "one bag to rule them all" concept, and besides the EDC bag above i use one of the following: When I take my daughter, its either a generic daiper bag, or this, which I also highly recommend: Osprey poco premium, very expensive but well worth it. For longer weekend, either with the family or more outdoorsy: Mistery ranch dragonslayer, also from this forum. For shorter treks i got a new bag from santa (we have the real one, he's more punctual then yours Karrimor hydro30, sellected for the big side pockets which carry a lot of stuff (compact camera) And that is enough I think, my appologies for the typos, and i hope to update the missing stuff soon!
