    For going to and from work I'm using a MaxP Pygmy Falcon.
    While at work, for all the bits and pieces I carry on the flight line, I'm using a Jumbo EDC s-type Versipac.
    It carries torch, leatherman, monocular, grip solution, gloves, notepad with pencil/eraser/ruler/penlight/Gerber EAB.
    Buff, head torch. hearing protection.

    Wally World special by Outdoor Research Products, with the glorious name 584-OP, $34.97. It's a 1500ci bag that came with 2 litre hydration pack in it's own pocket nearest your back. It has an "admin" type pocket, a soft-lined glasses pocket atop the main compartment. Two water bottle holders on the outside, a minor hip belt, a sternum strap, and c4 compression straps. Very good zippers - not regular, but pretty well sealed when zipped. Cord type zipper pulls. Carrying this fully loaded daily to and from work, and is always with me when walking, or in the car at least.

    Maxpedition Monsoon here. Most of my EDC is on my person, but I carry a light bag for my Nalgene, phone charger, extra handkerchief, etc.

    My current EDC bag:

    Maxpedition Larkspur Messenger Bag

    I switched to a 511 COVRT 18 backpack for a while, but I found the Larkspur was easier to access from the passenger seat of my truck where my bag spends most of its time. It also makes a pretty good carry on bag while traveling. For short day hikes I'm a big fan of my new REI Flash 18:

    Backpacks! After Years of commuting with a messenger bag my right shoulder still hasn't recovered.
    I have a Tom Bihn Synapse and a Mission Workshop Rambler. The Rambler has an internal frame and is amazingly comfortable. Sadly it's a little big for me. I'll never go back to a one strap bag.

    I've vacillated between packs, slings, sorta-messenger(MountainSmith Day bag). I've arrived at a fairly stable tiered system. It's been what I've used the most consistently over time the last couple of years anyway. Each tier is set up with default augmentation to the Fatty. Increasing water carry, tools, first aid and so on.

    I use a Maxpedition Fatty as my baseline EDC. I can contain all my EDC in my pockets with the Fatty in a cargo pocket. The only separate bits are my knife, phone, keys and money clip. Fatty in the left cargo pocket, phone in the right cargo. Knife clipped to the right, keys to in the right pocket, money clip in the left.

    If my tablet is going with me or I foresee the need for bigger tools and more options, I step up to the MoutainSmith Day bag. If I need more, I go to a pack, currently an REI Lookout 40.

    I quite like my Lunada, but find that using it well means breaking my Fatty out into the pockets of the Lunada. And then I lose the easy versatility of moving through my EDC tiers. If my lifestyle supported committing to the lunada for my carry I'd enjoy it, but it's more than I need most times and not what I want at work or more social situations.

    GR1 daily for work. GR Echo on the weekends. Would love to get one of the smaller Radio Rucks (the 20l ones) but they don't have them in the colors I want.

    5.11 Push Pack Man Purse. If I ever have to use a back pack, then it means I'm EDCing too much equipment.

    I went from the "Man Purse" of 4 years with a Maxped Colossus to the "Man Diaper Bag" of Maxped Mongo S-Type.

    Custom Timbuk2 messenger for work or when I need to carry a computer. On weekends it's either a Maxpedition Jumbo Versipack or an Osprey Manta 28, depends on what I'm doing and what I need to carry!
