    I'm curious what type of bags are the most popular for EDC. Vote and then tell us what your current bag is. I'm currently using a Max Sitka, but anxiously waiting for my Kifaru E and E to arrive, I'm going to try a regular backpack again....and try to slim down my EDC gear.

    I actually use a Lowepro Fastpack 350 as my daily EDC bag, lots of compartments, laptop sleeve, rain cover, padding. I use a maxpedition EDC case that I can take out and put in another bag when not working. I also have a cable/charger kit that I can use as needed. I do the same with a smaller first aid kit. I like being modular.

    Haven't got fancy enough (or bought enough gear) to carry a bag with yet. Most I'd do is lug a coworker's laptop to work in my backpack, because I dislike being handed one in a plastic bag or just on its own.

    So the only bags I carry every day are my lunch bags. One black lunch purse made of wetsuit kinda material, and doubled-up grocery bags for the non-refrigerated stuff. Would like to get a small organizer of some kind but don't know where to start. And I'm kinda scared of the price tag required to fill it properly. :p

    Standard 2 strap backpack. Mostly because it doesn't attract attention. The last thing I want is people wondering what I have in my bag. Just a backpack... Move along people,move along. :)

    Voted messenger, but it is not really a messenger bag, it leans more towards a briefcase.

    My Jumbo Versipack, it's compact as I only need to bring my tablet, a bottle of Nalgene/Contigo and just few things.

    Most of the time MP Jumbo, but if I want it a bit dressier a Tom Bihn Co-Pilot. If I’m working a Briggs&Riley business trolley. If I want just one bag and need it a bit larger (15" MacBook Pro), a Deuter Harvard rucksack. For the MBP I have a Wenger pouch, another Wenger laptop bag, and the laptop bag included with the Briggs&Riley which can be carried on its own. Then I have an older Tatonka rucksack in the 50l–60l size range (don’t know the model name ATM).
    But most of the time really the Jumbo. Everything organised and just big enough but stuffed to the max.

    Maxpedition Sitka. If it's good enough for Iron Man, it's good enough for me. :D

    I tried going to a Camelbak UA, and I decided 2 strap bags are no good. Maybe for a hike or prolonged travel, but the simplicity and ease of donning/doffing a slinger is too great to ever do 2 strap. I guess I'd prefer something slightly less "Tacticool", but it's perfect otherwise.

    For my DND bag (heavy book/beer load) I use the UA.

    I've tried them all and regular backpacks are the way to go for me! Here's my current favorite...
