    I have 2 bags I usually carry. My everyday pack is a 5.11 MOAB 10. In my rig (ambulance) I keep a Maxpedition Proteus pack stocked with various IV supplies, bandaging supplies, a CAT tourniquet, Mechanix gloves, and other random supplies and tools. The Proteus is a great tool for me if I have to be out of the rig for a long time. Our first out bags are huge and I find carrying my own pack makes life easier.

    I am using a Kiega R30 backpack and it's the best EDC pack I've owned...yet ;-). I'm still searching for the EDC bag that will be the ultimate one. I may just invest into a large Saddleback Leather backpack as I've grown to love their products.

    Been traveling the last 5 months doing building audits for my company. Lots of looking at generator rooms, backup batteries, basements, etc. My goto bag has been my versipack knockoff (Note to Maxpedition: make your versipack with a proper shoulder option and I'm in. My knockoff has one.). I carry flashlights, batteries, my digital camera, notebook, a bazillion keys. A bigger bag would be impractical in this instance.

    My company issued me a Swiss Army computer backpack that has worked out pretty well. Lots of pockets and comfortable to carry.

    http://countycomm.com/minebag.html one of these, which i voted as a purse type bag. i used a Thinkgeek Bag of Holding messenger bag foryears, but it was really too big/heavy for my day to day carrying, so i switched to this smaller thing from Countycomm.

    Either a laptop briefcase or a fanny pack.

    However I just got a FatBoy Versipack, so the fanny pack may be relegated to the closet. I also have a nice Case Logic backpack that fits my laptop nicely but almost never use it for work.

    My EDC bags consist of a Maxped Fatty inside a Neatfreak. Just enough space for all of the essentials. :D

    A backpack. My EDC is actually small but I often carry random additional stuff. When I tried not taking it with me, I usually regretted. I hate to haul groceries etc. in my hands.

    I only have one, I don't wanna think about whats where and what to take. One size has to fit.

    I have an old Osprey Cypher and am looking to replace it just now. This thread was a good inspiration, but I want a dedicated laptop compartment without losing the ability to hike with it, which shrinks the options to way little. Looking at Condor Commuter now.

    Converted an old Brit field bag to a Msrg type bag to fit my needs. I like reworking the old stuff. Gives you some connection to the past and a unique piece.
