    Hi all :)
    I've decided to start posting after doing a bit of reading to get the feel for your forums, which seem very friendly. It's been over 10 years since I was a member of any forum, but I keep finding myself drawn here so I thought I'd come say hi.

    I found out about EDCF because I was looking to replace a small Kathmandu branded bag I'd used as a day pack for some time and found too small. Our local surplus store had the Rush 12 on their website so I decided to read some reviews – I wanted something that could do laptop or water equally well, with room for extra layers and such-forth. I'm a fan of having plenty of organisation in a bag.

    That bag kindled my interest in EDC but I found it pretty male-oriented (ie. most people seem to have huge pockets). I Googled EDC for women and that led me to Blaine B's blog at blog.com, where he'd written a post about buying an EDC mother's day gift. Reading other posts on his blog led me here, as well as providing a good Rush 12 review.

    I bought the Rush 12, a couple of admin pouches to hold all my SAKs and things and eventually signed up here.

    I'm now on the lookout for a good folding knife, another torch and some stuff for a GHB because of the odd natural events that have been happening in this neck of the woods in the last couple years. Earthquakes, floods, freak snow storms... that kind of thing.
