    Hey

    I am currently using an Adidas sling bag. My organization is primarily based on the shape of the bag instead of having things where I can get to them readily. I am interested in a backpack or shoulder bag for EDC. My price range is probably $50-75. I don't have a CCW permit and my employer has a very legal posting of the Texas 30.06 statute on the front door. I need to be able to carry things from home to work and other places. I won't be carrying a change of clothes or anything like that usually. A book, journal, camera, FAK, tool pouch, toiletry pouch, insulin, water bottle, maybe some protein bars.

    Any advice will help.

    Thanks,

    R

    Take a look at Maxpedition products... maxpedition.com or lapolicegear.com (they usually have MaxP products for cheaper)...

    Check out Chrome bags. They are very durable (1000D Cordura, and double/triple-stitched), waterproof, and well-suited for daily carry.

    Since you mentioned a shoulder bag, consider the LA Police Gear Bail Out Bag. $20 plus shipping.

    http://www.lapolicegear.com/tabaoutbag.html

    Lots of pockets to organize all the stuff you listed and fairly compact.

    Depending on where you work (urban/outdoors, professional/casual etc.), a backpack would be better for your back, but not nearly as easily accessible.

    As for the mentions above:
    -lapolicegear, countycomm bags are good, the countycomm bags are slightly better in quality, but they're both pretty bottom-middle tier. They are hated by TADGear because of their past ripoff products.
    -Chrome's original owners went on to found Mission Workshop. Chrome messengers really are horrible for walking, but excellent for biking.

    I own and use extensively all of the above-mentioned.

    You're going to get about 20 brand recommendations, and 40 different styles unless you narrow down with more parameters.

    UTG tactical messenger bag.. its a bit on the tacticool side, but its comfortable, and holds books, folders, whatever in vertical rather than horizontal format. area51tactical was where i found mine the cheapest, and it cost around $30 at the time. great bag and pretty well devided. no pen pockets though, but ive come to terms with that. even a few open top pockets you can clip em to. other than that, no complaints... and ive got mine loaded with crap!
