If anyone is interested in this style of pack, I would recommend the rush series by 5.11.

They're a bit pricier, but made better than the red Rock packs (which I have also owned). the rush series use 1000D nylon, ykk zippers, and many other BIFL perks.

I currently own the rush 12 and rush 72, with the rush 24 being a perfect middle ground

Je me suis toujours demandé, vous transportez quoi vous, dans vos sacs à dos ? Depuis que je me suis intéressé à se qu'on appel des EDC (Every Day Carry), je transporte toujours avec moi un équipement qui ferait passer Marry Poppins pour une petite joueuse. Mes recherches sur le sujet m'ont forcement fait passer par le survivalisme, qui est un sujet vachement intéressant ! Mais comme pour la muscu j'ai du subir tout les clichés qui vont avec... Exemple rapide :
Muscu = Gros cons masculiniste superficiel et beauf
Survivalisme = Facho agressif et asocial

C'est dommage que les gens aient autant de clichés, parce que c'est un domaine très instructif. Bref, en gros j'ai toujours sur moi :

  • Mes clés hein, classique
  • Smartphone
  • Portefeuille +Un Range piece
  • Passport
  • Batterie externe
  • Mon couteau laguiole (manche en genévrier, lame sandvik 12C27, il me suivra dans la tombe lui !)*
  • une paire de gants de chantier (pour pouvoir changer une roue par exemple, ou bouger un truc lourd et sale)
  • Une lampe torche
  • Un Kindle Paper White
  • Une gourde Klean Kanteen en inox, fini les bouteilles en plastique \o/
  • Un couteau Suisse Victorinox*
  • Une clé USB chiffré, rattaché à mon trousseau de clé, contenant tous mes papiers numérisé (Passeport, permis, diplôme, CV, impôt, bulletin de salaire, etc...)
  • Un stylo, mais attention, un Space Pen!*
  • Un bloc note Field Note*
  • Une Fourchette Cuillere en titane*
  • Un briquet* (à gaz, bic, classique, les autres risque de sécher si on les utilise pas)
  • Un stick levre*
  • Un coupe ongle*
  • Une brosse à dent (format voyage) avec un mini tube dentifrice.
  • Un chargeur USB avec le Cable qui vas bien
  • Un SSD Portable
  • Des capotes*. Ba quoi ?
  • Un baladeur Cowon J3
  • Des Bouchons d'oreille (bien pratique en concert ou dans le métro)
  • Des écouteurs (une paire bluetooth, une paire filaire)
  • Une petite bouteille de 75 ml de gel desinfectant
  • Des lingettes Mercurochrome désinfectante (pour les bobos)* (normalement j'ai une mini trousse de soin, mais je l'ai paumé....)
  • Des mouchoirs.
  • Une serviette microfibre ultra légère (pour pouvoir poser son cul n'importe ou)
  • Le tout dans un Sac Rush 24 de chez 5.11

    *Rangé dans une pochette Maxpedition.

    Voila. J'vais peut être passer pour un gros taré aux yeux de certains, mais ça m'a bien aidé d'avoir tout ça sur moi, en de nombreuses occasion. Je vous invite à partager vos sac, comment vous prévoyez les coups dur, votre avis sur le sujet, etc !

    PS: Il existe un sous du doux nom de /r/edc, sauf qu'eux, ils rajoutent aussi des armes à feux pour certains ('murica style...).

Nice pack for $37.50

Here is the list of gear. It is meant for both myself and my wife, so I doubled up in some places. (Links where I have them)

u/Robert_Skywalker · 11 pointsr/streetwear

5.11 Rush 24

It's a pretty solid backpack. Lots of awesome pockets, very sturdy. I almost got it, but instead chose the North Face Borealis because of the water bottle pockets on the side, and a more minimalistic look.

u/remembertosmilebot · 11 pointsr/PUBATTLEGROUNDS

Did you know Amazon will donate a portion of every purchase if you shop by going to instead? Over $50,000,000 has been raised for charity - all you need to do is change the URL!

I'll throw in 5.11 bags. I EDC the Rush 12 regardless of what I'm doing (somedays it is work + school + gym) and have never run out of space.

u/Miamiblue112 · 11 pointsr/BuyItForLife

If anyone is interested in the Rush12 and only want to pay a quarter of the price check out

REEBOW GEAR Military Tactical Assault Pack Backpack Army Molle Bug Out Bag Backpacks Small Rucksack for Outdoor Hiking Camping Trekking Hunting Small Black …

I research the heck out of 5.11 bags and was about to pay $130 for the Rush12 last year when I came across the above linked bag. 5.11 bags are great and heavy duty construction. But the bag I linked above for a fraction of the price is far surpassing my expectations. I needed a bag for my Army Reserve life and civilian professional life. In the year of owning the bag it has servived a 29 day FTX (military training, where you legit live outdoors 24/7). The comparntments are all good sizes. And plus it's black so as military uniforms change, I can continue to use or wear when walking around base.
For my civilian life, I needed a bag for work where I can carry my work laptop, gym gear, lunch, and not look like I'm rucking when walking downtown. This bag does the job to the T. I fit my 13" laptop, meal prep lunch carton, gym shorts, t-shirt, toiletries, and size 13 running shoes in this bag. It's not as heavy duty as 5.11 and you won't be "rucking" in this bag or putting weights in it to train, but for the price it's been amazing.

u/bore902 · 9 pointsr/CanadianForces

As mentioned by u/jside86, something along these lines is a much better product than the shit daypacks, and you won't look like a tard.

u/Urschleim_in_Silicon · 9 pointsr/gadgets

511 Tactical Rush 24.

I own a computer shop going on 10 years now and this is my favorite so far. Read some of the reviews. I can send some detailed pics if you're interested.

u/MrJerkface · 9 pointsr/BuyItForLife

If you search this subreddits history, you'll find a few threads for messenger bags. A few months ago I scoured those, and settled on the 5.11 Rush messenger delivery bag.
I've never bought an expensive man purse before, but I can say hands down this is the best bag I've ever owned. I chose this over the highly recommended Timbuk2 bags because it had more zippers on the exterior flap, so I can got to the commonly used items faster. (I've also got a rageing design boner for military design, because its built to last & infinately customizable with molle webbing) I carry about the same amount of stuff, and there's pockets for pretty much all of it. My only complaint, is there's so many damn pockets I forget where I put things - then it becomes a no-hold-barred zipper & velcro jamboree.

u/vampiratemirajah · 8 pointsr/Survival

It seems like you may be very limited when it comes to funding for supplies, etc. If you have a few bucks to throw around, I would very highly suggest getting this pack

More important than the pack will be supplies, though. For two people, I would pack at least a 2-quart pot with a lid, eating utensils and dishes for the two of you, and bedding. You'd be surprised how much gets taken out of you when you don't have a decent spot to sleep. If you have one, bring a rake and use the hell out of it. A rake can be used to clear debris from beneath your tent, but also makes gathering/collecting tinder a breeze. The difference between a leveled-out and clean ground under a tent, and just setting a tent up where it fits, is huge. If you're in an area that receives any amount of rain, you're going to want a tarp underneath your tent as well. Couldn't tell you how many times my "waterproof" tent leaked because I chose a poor spot to set it up, or the rain water just decided to change course in the middle of the night.

Long-term, look into a solar shower. Your gf isn't going to want to stick around if she can't bathe properly, and showering before work is a must (as you may not be able to smell the campfire smoke after a while, but to other people it comes off as a "homeless" smell). Also, a bench or seating of somekind will drastically improve an outdoor living situation, but that can be made once you're out there.

I would suggest bringing a knife each, a machete (or well-sharpened kukri), an axe with one sharp side and a hammer-like side, and a shovel with a decent handle. A gun is very handy as well, but not necessary.

Are you planning to hunt/gather/trap/fish for the majority of your food? There are 5+ gallon emergency ration buckets that seem decent (haven't tried them myself), and with supplemental protein I can see that being a bargain. Otherwise, it would be a good idea to travel quite a bit from the designated camping area, as the animals have likely become weary with all the traffic. That being said, look up laws in your state to make sure you aren't breaking any (did you know that snares, gill nets, and trout lines are illegal in most states?).

Most importantly (if you bring nothing else), you should pack an extensive first aid kit. Pack more gauze, triangle bandages, tylenol, and triple antibiotic ointment than you think you'll need in a year. If you need any of it, you'll be grateful that you don't have to ration.

Also, good luck!! Feel free to pm me for more tips, I had at least a hundred more suggestions, but I felt the need to try to keep this short.

u/ialtp · 7 pointsr/BuyItForLife

5.11 Rush 24:

I've used it for 2 years now. Slight wear on shoulder straps (I'd recommend wrapping it in paracord or duct taping it up to prevent it), and I somehow magically lost one of the chest straps (user error).

So yeah. Not as good as the GR1 or 2, but best quality per dollar that I've seen.

u/scribbles23 · 7 pointsr/Survival

5.11 Rush

For tactical stuff. If you want to LIVE out of a bag, toploading just makes more sense.

u/JeffroeBodine · 7 pointsr/diabetes
u/RoidMonkey123 · 6 pointsr/kickstarter

OR you could just buy a single strap backpack that already exists and that you can easily swing around and access your stuff (I own this bag and it's awesome) PLUS you don't have to wait for them to make it!

u/soloxplorer · 6 pointsr/bugout

I use a 5.11 covrt 18 backpack and a pair of 5.11 covrt tech sleeves for situations very similar to what you describe, and this is perhaps the last "urban" backpack I'll ever buy. I've had it since 2012, and I've used it for everything ranging from airplane travel, light-duty day walks in the woods, EDC for work, motorcycle riding, and other odds and ends where it gets tossed around, and it hasn't faulted me yet. A lot of smartly placed pockets, and when you add the tech sleeves to the shoulder straps (there's velcro that will accommodate the sleeves that's integrated into the shoulder straps), it's almost like it's not necessary to have pockets in your clothing anymore. It will accommodate a 2L water reservoir, but IMO that's pointless since I feel an urban pack loses some discretion with a water tube coming out of it. So I've re-purposed that portion of the pack and go with the water bottle holders on the sides. There's tons of flexibility in this bag, which is why I love it and always recommend it.

u/zachdoom · 6 pointsr/BuyItForLife

I own, and would recommend the Rush 24 from 5.11 tactical (around 100$ at the right places) it might have to much of a military-look for your taste, but it has a tonne of great features, is very durable and very fairly priced (compared too similar bags). It is very roomy and the zippers can go all the way down so you can put things in the back easier (and actually 'pack' your bag instead of just shoving everything in with force. It has 2 main compartments and a compartment for a camelbak if you wanted to drink from that. It has other small pockets and a pocket lined with some soft material for your cellphone. It also molle webbing at the back if you want to hang things on it.

It is very durable too. But you can look up reviews online and see how it works and what kind of features/pockets and straps it has.

u/DrPercivalCox · 6 pointsr/preppers

I bought this one a month ago, and I love it. I've bought a couple molle pouches/attachments to go with it, and it's worked perfectly so far. I have clothes, snacks, flashlights, knives, some small and simple camping/survival accessories, a lot of first aid stuff. It's pretty full now, but still not obnoxiously heavy. It isn't some fancy name brand, but I wasn't looking to spend a shit ton of money either. Amazon has a lot of bags like this for around the same price.

u/piss-o-rama · 5 pointsr/EDC

The Maxpedition EDC Pocket Organizer comes in multiple sizes and a few colors. I have the Fatty size and it's great for keeping all my little things together.

u/xendude · 5 pointsr/EDC
u/itsobs · 5 pointsr/backpacks

You shouldn't. Even if the backpack looks decent in pictures, you will be disappointed once it does arrive if you decide to buy.

5.11 Rush 12 Only about $40 more expensive, but will definitely last you a LOT longer.

u/TheProdigalSean · 5 pointsr/MrRobot
u/hobotrainrobber_ · 5 pointsr/solotravel

I bought this backpack to travel with and it is amazing! Also much cheaper than either option you put up and they are super durable! I highly recommend them. Plus in Europe they don't have a strong military connotation.

u/JakeHT · 4 pointsr/streetwear

Yo sorry your boy was bustin his ass yesterday and couldnt get around to the comments. Anyway as my man /u/Robert_Skywalker said its the Rush 5.11and i love this thing. Have had it for 2 years now and not a single tear on it anywhere. Its very much worth the hundred dollars I purchased it for because i dont see myself needing another pack for years. Ive hiked miles with this bad boy packed and not even felt it. It has so many pockets and and space to store shit that ill find stuff months later after ive forgtten about them. Overall 10/10 and can highly recommend. If you got any questions lemme know my dudes and dudettes.

u/Trollygag · 4 pointsr/longrange

I wouldn't buy a cheap bipod, but you could consider getting a front bag or making your own block to shoot off of. You get the similar benefits but for less money. Both of them for $30. Over years they will start leaking from the seams, but it isn't that big of a deal.

u/madrigal50 · 4 pointsr/EDC

That's a lot of stuff to carry in your wallet all the time. If your goal was to slim down the wallet, you're going to have to slim down the load. For example, find a pick gauge you feel comfortable using for both guitar and bass, scales can be pulled up online in seconds right from your smartphone, coupons tend to end up expired in the wallet before you remember to use them, ditch the coupons. Why not a pocket knife instead of one in your wallet? Honestly, you sound more like you could use and edc pack of some sort rather than a wallet.

Maxpedition Micro Pocket Organizer might be more along the lines of what you need.

u/pazin · 4 pointsr/EDC

Pasted from my site:

Everyday Carry

My smallest set of gear that I always carry in my pockets consists of a knife, keychain, wallet and phone.

u/jzpenny · 4 pointsr/EDC

In general, I like it a lot. A few changes I'd make:

  • throw in some contractor bags - you're lacking the 'cover' component of the five 'c's. they weigh nothing and serve a million functions.
  • add a stainless steel nalgene, and keep it full of water. you don't want to have to build a fire or drink iodine water out of a pond when you get thirsty 30 minutes into a hike. use all consumables (sawyer filter) only as backups/last resorts, favoring renewable sources (boiling water from the cleanest available sources)
  • if you carry a compass, bring a (good, topographic) map. compasses are of limited value without maps.

    There are other changes I'd make that I consider more stylistic, but those are all "for sures".

    What I would start thinking about for expanding this and carrying the water might be something like this. It's got shoulder strap loops for easy carry and molle webbing so you could attach your existing pouch on one side or break it down into two for more symmetry in the pack. That's actually very close to what I carry as my modular takealong innawoods, packed in to the site inside a frame pack.
u/psykostick · 3 pointsr/EDC

If bigger is better i would probably have to recommend the 5.11 RUSH 72. If your looking for a day pack or something to carry your crap to work then either the RUSH 12 or 24 would also work. While on the quest for the "Right bag for me" picked up the RUSH line of bags and fell in love with the 72, but it was just too massive to carry with me everyday to and from work and around town. I moved to the 12 which was too small as i carry a 15" macbook pro and tools for work, which led me to the 24 which has so far been the perfect size with some space to spare.

5.11 RUSH 72

5.11 RUSH 24

But the 72 is fantastic for backpacking or using as a B.O.B.

i'm a big 5.11 Fan, but i have been eyeballing the TAD Fast Pack EDC, But i need my RUSH 24 to fail miserably before I get one.

u/sekthree · 3 pointsr/Multicopter


and on that note i keep my tools (for the most part) also in a small bag inside my larger bag.. bags inside of bags, that's all it ever is. like those nesting doll toys. hell, I DON'T EVEN FLY!! I JUST CARRY BAGS AROUND! What am i even doing on this sub!

i use this bag/pouch.. i even store my lipos inside a small toiletry pouch.

u/Sasasquatch · 3 pointsr/EDC

Would the Madpedition Pocket Organzier work? You can use Blackhawk speed strips to attach the organizer to your bag.

u/Chernoobyl · 3 pointsr/EDC

It's a little costly, but well worth it in my opinion. There is the 12 (which I have) a 24 and a 72 depending on what size you like. Here's the link -

u/Renz2LK · 3 pointsr/cosplay

Being a paintball/airsoft player, I have most of the gear that work on piecing something like this together. I too had the issue you are facing when it came to the accessories that separate this cosplay from standard military based cosplay.

  • For the comm unit you can try any of these 3D files (I know nothing about 3D printing, so hope this works for you). Option 1, Option 2, Option 3

  • For the watch: Option 1, Option 2. Not sure about adding LEDs to these though. OR if you have a smart watch with a large face, you can download a Division app or wallpaper that could give you the same effect.

  • As for backpacks you should look at Maxpedition backpacks but they are expensive but can be used for every day use. Otherwise, there's a knock-off or imitation company Yukon Tactical that are slightly less expensive but mimic the Maxpedition ones.

  • Med kit - you can use something like this and add a velcro medical cross to the front of it.

  • The Dark Zone loot pack - you can probably follow any one of these links to see if there is a DIY for this. I made mine with yellow craft foam rolled around a coffee can, some straps, and hot glue. Simple enough.

  • sleeping bag? I don't recall one being in the game, not sure i've ever encountered carrying one around also.
u/IAMA_MONSTERRRRRRRR · 3 pointsr/BuyItForLife

5.11 Rush 24? Or if that's too big, then its little brother the Rush 12. Not the prettiest looking, but it's rugged.

Mil-Tec Military Assault Pack MOLLE Backpack.

I have one that I use to haul my computer/tablet/cables/pi/assorted gadgets in.

I bought mine on Amazon several years ago for around $40. Looks like the price has remained steady!

Here's a link if you want one for yourself.

u/Filthy_Ramhole · 3 pointsr/policeuk

Paramedic Here, and yeah i know its Australian, but im so glad i bought over my Plat-A-Tac Police Duty Bag.

I worked on a solo car and this is brilliant. Clips to the passenger seatbelt so it doesnt fly around when you brake/accellerate.
Huge enough to fit all you need. Approrpiate number of pockets and pouches without being too over-the-top.

Came with a nice little divider for documents ect.

Has lasted me... ohhh... 6+ years now.

Alternately, heaps of medics used these Mil Tec Backpacks as both personal kitbags and as ALS kits, and highly reccomended. Heaps of space for stuff and not too bulky. Plus the nondescript backpack style means you can carry it around without screaming “copper”

u/FastAktionJakson · 3 pointsr/Bushcraft

Maxpedition is a great brand. I was in the same boat as you and saved up for a falcon ii and it was well worth it. There gear is top notch. That being said If you're looking for a good molle pack milsurp may be the way to go. A bush brother of mine has this from condor and he loves it. I believe it's similar in size to the condor ii from maxpedition and all you're really sacrificing is some quality in the craftsmanship. Plus with the extra money you save you could spend it on some molle compatible pouches and tac ties for add ons.

u/RippingAallDay · 3 pointsr/BuyItForLife

Dad to a 1.5 year old toddler checking in here: Backpacks are the way to go. I recently got an SOG Ninja Daypack and it's comfortable, has lots of compartments and is very nondescript.

u/logawi3 · 3 pointsr/bassfishing

I just use a tactical backpack. Does the job of holding my giant 5000 flambeau trays, plastics, spare line, scale, etc. As a bank fisherman, i suggest getting small simple backpack. We're limited to the rods, and baits we can throw. If that isnt an issue then get a full size backpack. I always like to overpack with gear for different situations. It does get heavy limiting movement but I am a pretty strong guy so I dont mind.Bobbing thru trees and brushes, get a small.


Small I used this before going full ham -


Big is -

u/The_Eternal_Badger · 3 pointsr/tacticalgear

You can get bags similar to that one all day long on Amazon for roughly that price. $39.95 is about what it's worth. If a $39.95 backpack is what you need, it's probably fine.

u/tgsa · 3 pointsr/EDC

I have this one:

I use it as my pistol range bag. Holds a pistol (or two), a couple boxes of ammo, lots of mags, hearing and eye pro, etc. Small bag but holds quite a bit.

I have heard pretty good things about the 3V Gear Posse as well:

You should be able to find a coupon code for 3V pretty easily as well.

Both of these are obviously geared towards firearms, but that doesn't mean you have to use them that way.

Edit: I have a coupon code good for 25% off at 3Vgear. PM me if you are going to buy something from there.

u/DaveFalcon73 · 2 pointsr/xboxone

I have this UK and US and it's not cheap but it's a great gadget backpack lots of pockets for phones, battery chargers etc.

The Xbox One fits in quite snuggly in the main compartment, I tend to put some foam at the bottom as the bottom isn't that padded and you can fit the power brick and a controller in the front zip pocket. There isn't much room to fit the Kinect also.

I also don't travel on a plane I just use it to transport between home/work/friends but I find it's much better than most rucksacks as it's well padded. I also use one for regular use with my 17" laptop (I have two Rush 24 bags) and really find they are the best for weather proofing, padding and the amount of pockets they have, plus they are super comfortable on the back/shoulders with the padded straps.

I know some say Pelican cases and they are probably more padded, being foam inserts cut out in a metal case, but will be a pain to lug around in my opinion. If you'r flying I would always make sure you take it has carry on to avoid too much bumping around of the Xbox.

u/_BlNG_ · 2 pointsr/whatsinthebag

Its pretty average, i have one so i will share my opinion on it.

The pro of this bag.

This bag is lightweight and the material itself can repel water without the rain cover so i suspect using it on light rain is fine but for heavier rain the cover will be useful.

The belt strap is removable (which i did) and it is comfortable for everyday use.

The bag also have a pocket for a laptop or watter bladder.

The bag have a pocket at the front which have decent organization for your pen and other stuff and it can fit various stuff in it.

Lastly the front vertical zip can fit a lot of stuff as well. But it wont fit large items because of the vertical zip have an awkward opening.

The carry handle is comfortable for carrying the bag.

The bag have decent amount of organization and everyday use.

The bag is solid and uses strong quality materials. Also the back panel really helps with ventilation so you dont sweat buckets while using it

Now here are the cons.

If you fill the main pocket or the vertical main pocket too much, it will render either pocket useless as it will fill the other pocket.

The laptop pocket is very small in my opinion and its tight fit caused some minor frustration when pulling the laptop out. Also if you dont use a laptop, it means that this pocket is a waste of space.

Another problem is that for a bag this size, it only fits approximately a small amount of stuff. The website stated that its a 16L backpack. Which in my personal opinion, its rather smallish.

The bag will not stand upright. This is one of the more frustrating thing for me since the bag cannot stand on itself but its rubber bottom helps it stand against a wall.

And finally, This bag may state that its" covert" or "blend in the urban enviroment" and stuff but in my opinion, this backpack doesmay the exact opposite. It may attract some attention due to its unusual design.

TL; DR: The fail safe pack is a great bag for carrying your everyday essentials such as your laptop and tools but for travelling or hiking or anything that requires filling every bit of space the bag have is not what the fail safe pack can do.

I generally dont recommend this backpack since you can get away with better backpacks for that money.

If you want a backpack with decent organization and carry to work, i suggest checking out the COVRT18 by 5.11 or the popular 5.11 RUSH however the 5.11 rush is not exactly an office backpack but its organization and material is great.

u/Tunnelmath · 2 pointsr/flashlight

Nite Ize makes one that would likely work. You can buy it at Lowes too. It is however very stiff and hard to insert flashlights larger than a mini-mag. It will certainly take up to a D-cell Maglite with a little fussing however.

u/reovent · 2 pointsr/flashlight

I was looking for the same thing a while ago and ended up getting this one,

Very happy with it especially for the price

I'm 28, in the Navy, and here's what I'm usually carrying.

Maxpedition Pocket Organizer

NM Flag patch

Old coin given to me a while ago

Sparrow's Tuxedo Pick Set It's a great set, and a cool thing to learn. The linked set has a different case, I guess they don't do the leather cases anymore. I also had them put rubber handles on mine when I ordered, makes all the difference.

USB cord that came with my phone

Tekton 4" adjustable wrench

Zebra pen. Forgot which specific probably know it though, it's one of the popular choices on this sub. My main pen I keep in my breast pocket, the Fisher Bullet. That's the best pen I've ever had, hands down.

Fine point Sharpie

Rite in the Rain notebook. It's ok. I much prefer Field Notes Expedition which I also keep in mind that breast pocket. Just wish the pages were perforated.

Streamlight Microstream. Awesome little light, and the AAA battery it takes lasts quite a while.


ThermoWorks surface thermometer. Sorry, can't find a link. My buddy gave me this last Christmas. Comes in real handy in the field, to see if my JetBoil is too hot to put away. Also, I dunno, I can tell you if stuff is hot or cold or whatever. Neat.

u/Fozzie5 · 2 pointsr/FTMMen
u/korgothwashere · 2 pointsr/EDC

What people are hinting at and not saying, is that you can get yourself a really good bag that will do everything you could need (unless your needs are INTENSELY specalized) for around $100. Anyone much over that is either too far into their own hype, or are approaching dimishing returns as far as dollar per feature.

Get a little more specific about what you're carrying around, or what you do regularly and options can be narrowed. Some people carry more, and some less. A 5.11 Rush 10 may be your size, where as others need a larger bag like a Rush 12.

Do you want single or double strap? Do you care about a military type bag or would you prefer a more urban look? Do you carry a laptop? Do you have any hobbies that require special gear? Does it need to be close to water proof? Do you plan to have to carry it around for long periods of time or will it spend a lot of time in the car? Does it need to perform double duty as a school/work bag?

All of these are going to be rugged options. None of these are over $150. Some are larger than others and some are sling packs. Others are backpack style. Some more urban than others.

You CAN get spendy on a pack, but really...I don't see much reason unless you want something that isn't available at a lower price somewhere else. Goruck is well thought of, but their bags seem expensive to me for what they are.

5.11 rush 12 backpack. I have bought 2 from amazon. last one got stolen tho :(

Used it for everything. Taking to haul clothes at the gym, carrying office laptop/iPad to meetings, 25 mile bike ride through city, mountain biking, and even took it to 3 Disney theme parks in 3 consecutive days.

You can fit a water bladder in it, has great space and opens up 180 degrees to sort your things out. At Epcot we got rained on HARD for a few hours but we decided to keep going through the park, nothing, And I mean NOTHING inside the pack got wet.

They retail for 100 but I’ve seen them on amazon for like 70 bucks. The black one is 89 dollars right now but the price changes every other week.

I've had this bag for years and absolutely love it. It is pretty big which I like because because I'm 6'4" and 250 lbs. My wife explains backpack theory best "the turtle shell needs to fit the turtle"

I hear people say bad things about Condor. I think it's because they don't cost a ton so there's an idea that they are low quality. I've had nothing but good experience with this bag.

u/amaraNT2oo2 · 2 pointsr/synthesizers

Not really a gig bag, but I have this backpack that can hold an unbelievable amount of stuff inside of it. I am pretty sure those three would fit just fine - I recall being able to fit an iRig Keys 37 (about the same length as MicroKorg, and longer than Bass Station 2) and a NI Maschine + my MBP 15".

Maybe a little pricey, but you can see the reviews - this backpack is built to last. I've had it for about 2.5 years and it's still holding up as if I bought it yesterday.

I just checked out pics of your bike. I'd go with a set of soft bags, try to get the straps under the seat if you can for passenger comfort. You'll also want them riding towards the rear so that her legs have room to comfortably sit on the pegs.

Look into a nice big tank bag if you don't have one already. They can hold a surprising amount of stuff. Look into Coretech, Nelson Rigg, etc. If you don't like any of the tank bags (not big enough etc) [I recently taught my bike how to hold this backpack like a tank bag] ( You can even do a cargo net with any old backpack or duffle that fits on your tank well enough.

A sissy bar with a luggage rack would be great for light things. You could put a little backpacking style tent back there, sleeping bags. I'd keep it to maybe 10 or 15 pounds max. The sissy bar also gives you a place to put a little pillow for your passenger for a long ride. My girlfriend wouldn't ride without one.

[Aerostich makes these] ( which you might find helpful. I've been told they sag if you put a heavy load in them, but they add options.

Cargo nets, bungee cords and 550 cord are your friends. Trash bags and ponchos can make decent rain covers. Any luggage is motorcycle luggage if you're clever enough =). Best of luck on your adventures.

First off, ditch the Block and get a mans gun. (JK, JK!!! It's a joke!)

For the knife, just go to a Cabelas, or what have you and hold a few, manipulate the opening mechanism and decide what you like. I've had the same Benchmade for going on 3 years and it's still in great shape.

For the wallet, I've had the Saddleback ID wallet for about 2 years and it just keeps getting better and better as it gets a more worn look. I love it and strongly recommend it.

Phone case: personal preference on form/function, I'm rocking the Magpul case because I like the color and minimalist design while still giving adequate protection.

u/secundthrowaway · 2 pointsr/medicalschool

I bought this black MOLLE assault pack in my junior year of undergrad. It's similar to the kind modern infantry/paramilitary use, and just as tough. I've found it to be an excellent bag for a fraction of the price of regular backpacks, and have used it for years without any signs of wear. Here's a few features I like about it:

  • Only around $33
  • Very tough, as previously mentioned
  • Can be expanded as much as 36 L, or compressed down to the size of a school pack. I used this for school, as luggage, and as hiking gear. Pretty versatile
  • 2 large compartments, with a mesh subcompartment and a waterproof enclosure in the rear one
  • lots of miscellanous pockets in the smaller compartments, for pens and other minutiae

    Some people don't care much for the military-ish look, but I don't mind it since the black color subdues that vibe. It also has that modular MOLLE function (adding on other MOLLE gear onto the meshwork) if you need that sort of thing.

u/LochDhu · 2 pointsr/bodybuilding

u/theGRZA · 2 pointsr/Survival

ThirstyOne is correct. $20. I bring mine on short hikes and leave it in the truck day to day. And this fits inside with the nalgene. The only thing i didn't like about it is that it flops around a bit when fitted to a belt or backpack. I use a shoulder strap now.

If you want a backpack what a lot of guys do is strap the crawler to the outside of the backpack. Maybe even to the bottom.

u/riddle3master · 1 pointr/backpacks

Have you tried out the 5.11 Rush series? The Rush 24 might be something you like:

It's black, it's a military backpack so it's rugged. Not waterproof but water resistant. I like using raincover personally since it covers all the zippers and doesn't take up much space:

There's also the ECBC Lance Daypack:

Not as tough like the Rush 24, but has a more office look to it. It's black and is made of water resistant material. It has a place for a water bottle but I'd be afraid of putting it there if you're on a motorcycle.

u/So_Not_Yacht · 1 pointr/travel

Why not go with the Rush 24? You linked to the rush 12 but they do have an 'in between' betweeen the 12 and 72. If you have a higher/flexible budget, you should also check out the GoRuck GR2; they both (34L and 40L) fit in carry on.

u/cn1ght · 1 pointr/myog

>Padding and hip belts are almost always there on anything that's more than a day pack.

I appreciate you providing a reply, however when the question is "at what point do you need X" replying with "well many designs I see always have X" does not answer anything. We both know that packs exist which do not have padding (even you admitted something not larger than a daypack has no padding). So when someone tries to find out why or at what point is it needed giving a reply of "well, most packs have it" does not help.

>For more technical or demandingly used materials you can find data sheets from the manufacturers, but I doubt that's of much practical use when an individual is making their own gear.

Have you looked at this data? I have not checked manufacturer's datasheets for this information so I do not know if they actually label "this can hold up to 50lb". I doubt they give an answer that simplistic since, for example, building a pack will have large force variations on the fabric from walking pushing the pack up and down (when the pack is rebounding from the lowest point there will be far more force on it than the weight of the items in the pack).

>Not sure what exactly you mean by ALICE type vs MOLLE,

They are common pack types. ALICE: MOLLE:

>The idea of being able to double a carrying system's capacity, while cool in theory, sounds like one or both configurations end up being a bad compromise in practice.

Possibly. However, it is something I want to look. I mean what is the point of giving up early on saying "well, that might not work so do not try it". It is far more interesting to at least bother trying to figure it out instead of just "eh, nah". Additionally, the point of the MOLLE system was to be able to add additional capacity to it so it can work at least to some extent. There are things such as which do allow you to add or remove most of the load as you want. So, I know that it is possible to have a design where you can add or remove capacity. The only question really is: can I figure out a design which I like?

The other potentially mitigating factor is that I probably want the starting size (without added things) to be quite small. In normal activities I might need:

poncho, paper, pen, ereader, wallet, keys, deoderant, chapstick, utility tool, maybe other things like headache meds or small additions

Everything would probably fit into a briefcase (I would check if I had one). Maybe this would scale to be usable for a weekend hiking trip (example size: So, that is a very large increase in capacity, however I am unsure why it would be so difficult to design a bag which after I add compartments ends up similar to that example and I take compartments off as they are not needed.

You telling me "well, it will probably not work" does not really help. If you had pointed out that the military stopped using systems where you add and remove compartments years ago and they just use strap systems now, it would have been something I already knew, but at least you would have provided a reason for your point of "well it probably will not work well", and it would have been not a good enough reason to make much difference haha. If you had somehow provided examples or an analysis which explained that you cannot use a support system for a large bag on a much smaller bag because of {insert reason} so you cannot scale the bag, that would have been a great reason for me to stop thinking about it.

u/mikeknine · 1 pointr/StudentNurse

I got one of these:

... and zipped it inside out. Fit perfectly into one of the cargo pockets on my scrub pants.

Front side had: sharpie, red pen, highlighter, whiteboard marker, pen light and a small notebook that slipped into the sleeve behind the loops.

This is the pen light that I used and I LOVED it. 0.5 lumen setting is perfect for pupil checks. 210 lumen setting is awesome for times you need a bright ass light (finding those hidden urethra's on your bariatric patients ....). Bonus is it stands up well to cavi wipes.

Back side: trauma shears into the back sleeve and a hemostat into one of the loops.

Nice thing was it kept everything in one place that I could keep in my car. I would clip my badge to it after clinical that way everything was in one place and I wouldn't lose it.

I know it seems like overkill, but I honestly ended up using everything at one point or another during clinical. Some more than others I guess. I also hate not having something when I need it.

A good watch is also crucial (unless your clinical site has a "bare below the elbows" policy). I went a little overboard and got a g-shock with a metal band that I could cavi wipe when needed.

Binder/clipboard is essential for whatever paperwork you will be required to complete. Fiddle around and find which works best for you, chances are you will change it throughout your schooling based on your placement/req's for that placement.

Stethoscope goes without saying.

She can be difficult, willful and temperamental, sure, but as frustrating as it can be, it's like watching a puppy or kitten learning to hunt. Every day I watch her get a little smarter, a little cleverer, a little more creative, and it's truly amazing beyond words to watch her grow like this. I never thought I'd be so eager to sit and watch someone grow. I know she has the potential to become... beyond amazing, amazing to the rest of the world and not just to her mother and I. All that pales in comparison to how awesome, truly awesome, the tiny things she does. Like how she'll hide behind me when she's scared, but she'll still peek out and growl. How she'll be there, her face an inch away from mine, when I first wake up, and she'll whisper "morning Papa you're so handsome I love you can I watch cartoons?". How can I cope with that level of cute? I even love the way that whenever she has three of anything, crackers, toys, rocks, anything, she always declares the biggest to be the Papa, the middle sized one to be the Momma, and the smallest one to be the baby. Everything should be like her little family, and every time she does it I make rather unmanly sounds of happy.

u/Teerlys · 1 pointr/bugout

If you're getting one of the Costco backpacks, I actually have both of the models they sell in my own local store and ended up liking the cheaper of them better than the more expensive. For one thing, it's a bit lighter on its own than the model that has the heavy duty handle on top. Also, (again, if it's the one I'm thinking of) the zipper pull tabs on the expensive one are all metal. My fiance uses that pack daily for work and I can always here the tink-tink-tink of those things clattering off of one another. The less expensive model has held up for me for the past 3 years or so of being my back and forth to work bag, with the worst bit of wear being that the zipper pull tab I use most often detached.

For about a $20 difference, I am getting ready to order a couple of these shortly. The reviews on that pack are very positive, so it's something else to look at with a similar price.

I've got the 511 RUSH12 and it's worked great for me.

If you dont mind the 'tactical' look, take a look at MOLLE options. They are like Lego for bags.

Rush 12 + Mask Pouch

  1. Consider bringing an extra water bottle (Nalgene HDPE bottles are light and sturdy)/hydration bladder if you have room in your ruck. Keeping water in means it also keeps water out, so you can pack stuff into the bottle and it'll stay dry (extra pair of socks, a small snack), which keeps the bottle from being wasted space. And if your hydration bladder fails and you have no backup option, you are Fucked with a capital F. Don't be Fucked with a capital F.

  2. Listen to /u/jamesvreeland. You don't pass Selection and a billion events without knowing your shit.

  3. Don't bring a North Face/Jansport bag to an event, particularly not a Challenge. I'm not saying it won't survive, but if it doesn't, it's a nightmare scenario. Not saying it will happen (I've seen those bags survive events), but you wanna minimize the risk. Go to a surplus store like James and /u/perryw said and get an ILBE, or consider a 5.11 Rush 12. They're tough enough to survive an event.

5.11 24 hour rush pack. Had mine for 6 years and it will undoubtedly last me at least 10 more.

I carry my clothes, shoes, hygiene products, wrist wraps, headphones, notebook, weighted pull up belt, and have room for all of that 2x over. More compartments and pockets than I will ever use at the size of a normal backpack

u/Spiritfire737 · 1 pointr/photography

I bought a 5.11 Tactical Rush 24 for airsoft and convention swag-hauling. The ability to carry volume as well as a hydration bladder was a must for me. Later on I got into photography and started using it as a camera bag because I was too cheap to do otherwise.

The pack has been saddled on each side with the Hazard 4 Jelly Roll to carry extra lenses and an upright general purpose pouch (I think I have a Specter Gear pouch, but any MOLLE-compatible one will do). I have two external flashes stowed in the exterior compartment. My multitool is usually clipped onto one of the MOLLE straps on the shoulder straps and have other important bits for the shoot attached and dangling by carabiner.

Keep in mind that the material of the pack is rough and will scratch up your gear if you're not careful. I actually want to look at inserts to better protect my camera. If I ever upgrade from my Nikon D5100, I'll be looking for a new camera-centric bag.

u/ocdsloth · 1 pointr/EDC

kingston DTM drives? with a freekey system? maybe ad a carbine for your keys?

as for a flash light what do you think of a streamlight microstream?

hard to say any more if i dont know how you carry all that stuff

also, try to fix one or two days (depends of how much you use your zippo) for filling days, that way you wont need a backup lighter. or just get some kind of a pocked organizer like a maxpedition mini or maxpedition micro, for what i see that is more than enough for you


if you dont like carbines think about the P7 or Nite Ize Keyclipse

u/Francostein · 1 pointr/Journaling

I’ve purchased all my Maxpedition gear from Amazon. The one from this pic is Maxpedition Micro Pocket Organizer

u/Dragon_GA · 1 pointr/EDC

I prefer the Amazon Basic USB battery packs to the Anker ones, having bought both. The amazon ones are similar capacity but in a much better form factor for pocketing (taller and wider but more slender). I have both the 10K and 5.6K and the 5.6K is a lot more pocket friendly carry but for backpack the 10K is great.

For cables I carry two 6 inch from monoprice:

  • USB-A to USB-C
  • USB-C to USB-C

    Which lets me pretty much connect to any current power source now and for the foreseeable future. To connect to devices I actually use I found this USB-C to Micro-USB converter. Was the only one I could find that went the "right way", the rest seem to go from Micro-USB to USB-C. Finally an Apple Micro-USB to Lightning adapter for charging the phone.

    All told about one foot worth of USB cables and two dongles lets me connect to and charge just about anything I can imagine. Throw an OLight USB charger in with it and you can charge lithium ion and NiMH batteries as well.

    Everything above fits easily in a Maxpedition Micro that you can just toss in a backpack or in your back pocket with room to spare (small first aid kit, wet wipes, whatever).
u/militantomg · 1 pointr/electronic_cigarette

Unicorn bottles my man, and this fellow . Always brought a 30ml unicorn, spare battery, spare mod, and spare tank/coil with me to work.

u/Boschala · 1 pointr/EDC

I had a similar problem and wound up going the belt holster route. I put pocket dumps of work and day off. I went that route because I wanted to minimize the number of items in each pocket for quick retrieval, and wound up with my phone getting a pocket of its own (to save the screen), my keys and wallet in the other front pocket. and my knife in my back pocket.
There are a couple options for pocket organizers if you don't go the holster route. Precogvision's link is a prettier one, and Skinth makes something similar in nylon. These have the advantage in that you can reach in and grab something without necessarily pulling the whole organizer from your pocket -- they reduce your carrying capacity, but allow easier access to what you have. One of those would handle your knife, light, pen, and comb just fine, but then leaves you with putting a wallet or phone in a back pocket.
If you don't mind having an extra thing to pull out of your pocket before you get access to your stuff, several companies make small pocket pouches. Maxpedition makes a couple that look fine, and would hold everything not in the wallet pocket. But it's an extra thing to open before getting at your phone, pen, whatever, and then you're juggling all your stuff in hand as you retrieve and replace the item you're pulling out. I wouldn't like it, but a lot of people do and it's by far the least expensive option so there's no reason not to try and and see if it's for you.

If you don't want to spend Datsusara prices you might want to check out the Mil-Tec Military Army Patrol Assault Pack.

u/playvind · 1 pointr/bjj

I too bike to and from job /training. Have had it for a year, and it has served me perfect. No signs of ware and tear so far. So I can really recommend it, and it's fairly cheap.

The one negative I have to say about it is that its not waterproof in the zippers, so in heavy rain the content can get a little wet. But it's by no means a deal breaker.

u/fitz1015 · 1 pointr/Tools

u/Helpmegetanewname · 1 pointr/bugout

I've started planning and building my survival kits/bags but im at a bit of a stuck point on the type/style of bag to use. I have one that is an everyday backpack that is my EDC/grab n go. Small enough for a quick bail, but not extensive survival.

I was looking around at a bag like this one on Amazon and thought it might be a good option.

u/LXcsgo · 1 pointr/whatsinthebag

You could look for a 30l military backpack. Just look for a 'MOLLE 30L Bag' on amazon or somewhere, its a decent size, has a load of storage and lasts ages.

Like This

u/truthjusticeUSAway · 1 pointr/bjj

I have the older version of this and it's pretty OK for my work/BJJ stuff. Don't think it would have fit all my college stuff and my gear, though.

It's ripping around the corners at this point. My next bag won't be specifically for BJJ, but something like this has no reason it wouldn't work for BJJ and school.

u/gmann2388 · 1 pointr/EDC

No, but with the switchable shoulder strap it's nice to be able to put on the side you'd prefer. I use this guy and can easily move it from my one bag to the other.

u/medic-pepper · 1 pointr/Miata

Lol yeah. For a while I ran some MOLLE bottle pouches between the seats on my cross bar. They worked well and I still use them during long drives or when it's super hot out as the cover could shade the water bottle.

CONDOR H2O Pouch (Black, 10 x 4Dia-Inch)

u/mechitgood · 1 pointr/BabyBumps

I would def go for the cheaper one. I know so many people, myself included who spent a ton of money on a diaper bag which are the same exact thing as getting a regular bag or backpack. I think my original one was $75 from babies r us and I like the $15 regular backpack we use now much better.

That being said if you choose a cheaper option I would def look into reviews. Don't do what I did and go with a Walmart brand diaper bag after giving away my expensive one. It was under $20 but the quality was terrible. We currently use a canvas Levi's bag we found on clearance for $15 and have been for the past couple of years. It's a regular backpack with a laptop slot built in. Other than that we've never had to buy an organizer or anything else. I put diapers and wipes in the laptop part. In the regular area I have an extra outfit, some small toys, and whatever else I need for when we go out. It also has a smaller pocket which I put diaper cream, Tylenol, etc.

this is a similar one I've had my eye on for a while now but it has 5 stars and almost 900 reviews. Maybe you can surprise your husband for Valentine's Day with it.

u/AverageToaster · 1 pointr/PAX

I picked up a similar bag to this at a military surplus store years ago and have used it every year at pax with great success.

u/BrotherSeamus · 1 pointr/PLC

I work in too many nasty places to spend over $100 on a backpack. I bought a couple of these when they were $25 and have never had any issues.

u/jaifriedpork · 1 pointr/Multicopter

You're not missing much, Army Surplus stores are overpriced and not usually worth the trip in my experience. I got this bag on Amazon, after trying this one first. If you want a smaller pack, the second one is nice, and the rear pocket is exactly the right size for that transmitter case, but I needed more space so that one became my son's backpack. Every three year old needs a bug out bag, right?

u/zachjvd · 1 pointr/BuyItForLife

I was in ROTC in college and used this backpack. It collapses down to comfortably carry around a laptop an a notebook or too, but can also expand out to be about the same size as a carry-on suitcase. I have brought in on training exercises in inclement weather and I have used it as my only luggage in international travel. When I have gotten it dirty, it's come out looking brand new with a little spot cleaning. All my previous backpacks I've replaced because the zipper would eventually malfunction, or I would wear a hole in the bag. I swear this one is indestructible. It has an easy access external pocket for a laptop, two main body pockets, and two smaller accessory pockets. I bought a small water bottle pouch that clips onto the side has now become an irremovable part of the bag itself.


10/10 I would recommend this backpack as a BIFL bag that will be useful for near any purpose.

I have a cheap tactical backpack from Amazon. Well, cheap as compared to Maxpedition or other brands. It's made really well and is pretty thick nylon, but probably not quite as thick as the more expensive brands. Very spacious and lots of Molle webbing and different pockets and pouches for your stuff. I have some smaller zippered nylon pouches that have different items that I keep in it, one has first aid, another has toiletries & grooming type items (Tide Pen LOL), another has pen light, pen, note pad, etc. Large opening has a bag inside that has water, food, etc. There's tons of room in it for just about anything you want to carry.

u/idontknowwhynot · 1 pointr/bugout

I went with this one. My bag is urban prepped since I live downtown Chicago. This one made the cut for me because I use a lot of MOLLE add ons and can compartmentalize certain scenario based add ons. For example, I have a side pack that has PPE for catastrophe in the city (think 9/11 dust and destruction), so it has respirators, safety goggles, a few other things. Not needed? Great, quick pop off and a few pounds lighter (also, I’m packing for 2... girlfriend thinks I’m crazy, but I got her covered).

u/Eevich · 1 pointr/PAX

From my personal experience at PAX;

Don't bring anything that doesn't have a secure or zippered pocket of some kind. This is more of a personal preference but I want to know that my chargers and few electronics are safe and not easily accessed by others.

Don't bring anything with small or thin straps, by the end of day four even with cushioned straps my shoulders are pretty damn sore. Adding extra cushioning before hand might be a worthwhile investment.

Don't bring anything too bulky or that has too many accessories on it, by which I mean anything that might hook or catch on other people passing by. It's very cramped in there and last year I watched a womans bag, that had a few chains on it, snag and break.

I personally like having several pockets to help me stay organized and so that I don't have to stop and pull everything out just to find one thing, especially with how busy and chaotic some of the spaces can get.
A small pocket for electronics, a second for quick snacks or med access (beef jerky, pepto and tylenol are good basics to keep with you just in case), and another section or two for swag and anything I buy.

I personally use a tactical backpack. Simple and no fuss, but plenty of room. Some are made with very breathable materials which can help keep your back from getting too sweaty if it's hot or muggy.

Something simple like this

u/Wilsonsj90 · 1 pointr/emergencymedicine

1st off; Don't waste your money on items you will NEVER use or that wont have a practical application. While a BP can be nice to have, it will get taken by responding medics and will have no bearing on the care you provide in the meantime. Forget the cuff. Forget the BVM. If a patient has coded, you're not going to alternate compressions and one man bagging. If a bystander wants to help and doesn't feel comfortable with a face mask, quickly instruct them on compressions and you do the breaths while monitoring their rate/quality. Consider EPI auto-injector depending on state laws if you think you'll ever come up on an ANA. CVS has (had?) a generic for $10. Forget other meds. To much liability with no benefit pre-EMS.

Coming from an urban center without the need for driving, I use a MOLLE kit attached to my day pack. Stocked it with several sets of gloves, penlight, decompression needle, shears, lots of 4x4s, face mask, chest seal, CELOX, and CAT. Stethoscope is always in my primary bag. Goes everywhere and I still have plenty of storage for laptop, street clothes, and whatever else I might need.

Most of what I've come across are ODs, but I won't even think about carrying Narcan. Dispatch will alert LE as well and they have it on them. Just monitor their airway. Even out of the city, 99% of what you'd ever come across needing immediate assistance that won't have the risk of a combative person (i.e. OD given Narcan) is bleeding and airway. The rest can wait for a rig.

Notepad and pen might be helpful as well for quick vitals. In lieu of a BP, just note weather their pulse is strong or not.

Location, season, and space dependent, a foil-type survival blanket might be in order too.

I just got this one a few months ago and I like it quite a bit. There's plenty of pockets and some organizers within the pockets. There is a pocket for water bladder, with hole at the top for a Camelbak straw thingy, if that's your thing. I've taken it on a flight - packed it full and it fit overhead/carry-on requirements.
