    Feel free to move this if I've posted in the wrong place.

    I'm looking for any ideas I can find to set up my edc bag. My current bag is a Camelbak MULE in desert camo.

    My main interest is how I can customize this pack. Maybe extra attachment points, quick access to its contents, etc.

    So, start showing them MAN-PURSES ;D

    Here's a pic of my Maxpedition Pygmy Falcon. Great little day pack. The water bottle pockets rule. The shock cord on the bottom holds an umbrella. I've also attached a Countycomm pocket organizer to the front. I'm working on attaching a Countycomm MPCC to one of the chest straps, for my digital camera.

    Here's mine:

    If anyone wants to see what's inside, I posted a complete list over on FF in my Jumbo Versipack (Fatboy) Mini-Review.

    I've added several things, including some Atwood tools and a Zeiss 10x25 monocular, since I posted the list.

    Maxpedition Seems to really be popular. I do have a Lefty Versipack (It's the smaller one), But it seems a little too much like a purse. I use it for a camera bag now.
    Keep em comming.

    Another Maxpedition here! A Devildog. Blue Glowring at right, NutKase(Sorta Egg-sized Spy capsule!) at left, Mag Solitaire in left loop (yeah, I know theyre crap!) cheap carabiner/bottle opener with white LED on left loop, & an NRA Jetscream attached to right loop. Small LED with reflector at bottom centre (from a Petstore, supposed to go on dogs collar!) & some inner tube on the shoulder pad to stop slippage, mine kept slipping when I wore my biker jacket.
    Great EDC bag, but wish Id bought Khaki. Black is "Terribly Tactical!"

    Dtsoll. I dunno if you can buy them over there, but the NutKase is a strong steel egg-sized Spy capsule with a very long thread & a magnet inside it. I bought mine for £10.00 each from Halfords (Auto Spares Store chain in UK) * theyre intended top carry the lock-nut for your locakable wheel nuts. (Ive got three different locknuts on my alloy wheels, to stop some scally TW*T nicking my wheels! Car crime is rife in the UK)
    Theyre big for keyring but I guess would carry three or four times as much as a normal Spy Capsule.

    I seem to recall they were designed by some engineering student in Birmingham or Sheffield

    Jumbo with Mega Rollypoly and M2 waistpack in the normal attachment points, a standard Rollypoly sewn onto the side*, a couple of stainless Twisties braided into the top webbing which allows a clip point for keys. I've recently replaced the modified Keyper that lived on the strap with a black locking carabiner. You can clip items like the dog leash to the keyper/carabiner for hands free operation. :)

    * This was a bit challenging and required a sewing awl.

    TKD,

    Welcome to the forum. Interesting how you've packed your Maxpedition Pygmy Falcon backpack. What keeps the Prybaby from falling off the pack?

    I have a few Maxpedition packs and bags and really like the Pygmy Falcon. I removed the waist belt and keep a pair of leather gloves and a hank of cord in one of the mesh bottle holder pockets.

    parnass,
    Friction keeps the Prybaby on the Pygmy. The Prybaby goes in tight. It takes a lot of force to remove it.

    Do you fit all that into the breifcase at the top of the pic? Could you post of pic of it loaded? I'm also stuck in a slightly formal environment and have been working on customizing a day planner type thing with all my gear, but so far have not been able to get a winning combination.
