    I have a bit different load-out from most of you, so you may not be interested, but I decided to annoy you with it anyway. :) My EDC bag is a Maxpedition Proteus. I guess it's basically what I've heard someone refer to as a "dad bag". I'm currently a stay at home father, so I take care of my son (14 months) and this is the bag I take with me when we go shopping for groceries or to the playground or whatever.
    [​IMG]

    Main compartment:
    change of clothes
    couple of clean diapers
    small plastic bags for taking used diapers back home safely
    bigger plastic bag in case we need more carrying capacity
    comfort "rag" (or whatever it's called in English?)

    Side compartment A:
    snacks (not a real lunch, just an emergency snack in case we get stuck somewhere)
    couple of spoons

    Side compartment B:
    small home-made first-aid kit (yes, it's a soap box)

    Front compartment:
    SAK
    some paracord
    Snickers bar
    small notepad (post-it pad actually)
    small bottle of hand-sanitizer gel
    sanitary baby-wipes (in zip-lock bags so they don't dry out)
    tissue paper
    chewing gum

    I also have a small 2 dl water flask that goes into the main compartment, but I forgot to put it into the picture. I keep my knives and flashlights (and some other stuff) in my pockets, so they are not included here.

    If he were old enough that'd be an edc bag for any son to be proud of. O0 Nice bag, and it looks to suit your needs quite well, while remaining stylish might I add.

    The material is good quality IMO, you should be able to attach a nalgene bottle to the front (or bottom) quite easily. Or if you were to put it inside it would fit fine, depending on what else you were carrying of course. If by occasional use you mean putting misc. odds and ends needed for fishing or camping then I think it'd do fine.

    This is my Tom Bihn Ego; I took the photo in the stairway of a colorfully painted parking garage. Great gear and laptop bag!

    Nice bag.

    I gotta gripe though about your fire practice. In my neck of the woods, that would be serious forest fire behavior. Your leaf litter looks pretty wet, but still, practice some fire safety with that canteen stove and clear the litter out. Scatter it back when you're done.

    Oh, I have one of those stoves too and they are darn slick and compact with the canteen. You might consider the little soda or beer can constructed alcohol burner. They fit nicely underneath the stove and have lots more output.

    :iagree: Takes me back to the old Boy Scout days. Lessons well learned. Timely, too, considering the So.Cal. fires.

    I believe it is from a company named "Condor Outdoors", they make "tactical" gear for the airsoft and paintball market as opposed to military use. Therefore the materials and construction are not as rugged, but perfectly suitable for daily use. Just my $.02

    Normally I would agree with you.

    The ground was soaked with a couple of days worth of rain. It was still raining when that picture was taken. I couldn't set a forest fire back there if I really put my mind to it. Also I was on the edge of a stream, and anything that lit up could have been kicked right into the stream.

    Here is another angle on the same fire:

    Actually I have an SSBIT alcohol stove from Minibull Designs. It fits nicely under there. I just didn't have any alcohol fuel with me. I did, however, have a few Esbit tablets.
