This goes in the car. I down load it if I carry it for the day.

I'm looking to upgrade my current bag (work gives me a Swiss Army computer pack), but I want something "gray" that doesn't look too "tactical". I love the 5.11's but think they're a little too much. Any thoughts on the SOG Ninja?

I don't really carry a bag for EDC per se, but I do keep a Camelbak with some gear in my trunk. The model I have is discontinued, but its pretty close to this one but just a little smaller.

There doesn't seem to be too many reviews out about that one but it sounds like a decent deal. Its a bit too big for my EDC needs, but I'd definitely use something that size as a carry-on.  2 things stood out to me immediately as flaws though: The plastic quick-release clips at the bottom of the shoulder straps look like a point of failure and the fact that it is advertised as a "Walmart exclusive" at such a low price makes me think blind Chinese children probably made them. I have only ever owned one SOG product and that was the Paratool Multi-Tool and I wasn't impressed with it.

Mine is a bit more basic and focuses just on the essentials of what I actually carry. As a bonus, I made the leather case myself. I make custom leather goods for a variety of uses, so if you're interested, let me know.

This is beautiful and perfect. What is the ballpark cost of this case?

Currently, I use a small backpack from Osprey, which is amazing, but a bit utilitarian for my EDC liking.

Got this Vanquest Pocket Maximizer Husky awhile back and it seems to be the perfect balance between too small and too big to deal with.

I can throw this in my laptop bag for mon-fri day job and then when I leave the house for other things I can grab this thing to act as a

"Bare bones" bug out bag. I basically always have this little guy with me now.

 

Springfield XDS .45 for winter carry.

 

Pouch contents are as follows

1. 10 feet 7 strand paracord

2. Sandisk 8 gig usb drive

3. Smiths knife sharpener with carbide, ceramic and round file for serrated blades.

4. Fenix E12 1xAA led flashlight.

5. Handy rubberband wrapped around flashlight

6. El Cheapo walgreen special spiral notebook

7. Hidden behind notebook is a large picnic napkin for emergency nose issues.

8. Stanley 4 way screwdriver pen

9. Pilot fine point V5 RT writes with no bleed and dries fast.

10. Leatherman Squirt with plyers

11. Duracell rechargable AA

12. Small Bic lighter

13. Chap stick

14. Nite Ize micro biners on the zipper pulls to keep the pouch child proof

15. Nite Ize bendable cable ties.

16. Adventure Medical small family first aid kit tucked in the right side pocket. All types of meds and bandages loaded in there.

Nice setup, Ragamuffin.  The picture is clear and I can tell pretty much what's in it, but would you mind listing everything out to cover what's not visible?  Much appreciated.  I recently purchased a Maxpedition Mico slowly filling it up, stealing ideas from others  :)  I guess that's what these forums are for, right? Sharing and stealing.

I edited my previous post to include the contents. It's pretty much filled up with a couple empty spots in case I need to put something else in there on the fly.

Ryan, that case is very cool. What else do you make?

Nice low-key bag. I am looking to get a mid priced bag that is not too tactical looking.
I have a red rock sling bag and its good size but to be honest it looks like a gun range bag.

I like it I like it

I've gone through weird bag phases throughout the last 8 or so years.  

 

There was the sporty phase, where I carried a duffel with workout clothes, along with all my garbage.  The MEGA tactical phase, where I carried a Maxpedition Falcon II everyday (since been turned into a go bag).  The moderate tactical phase, where I carried a Maxpedition Mongo Versipack (sometimes I'll throw some items into this one if I'm feeling a tacticool).  The absolutely normal phase, where I carried a Targus laptop backpack (still occasionally carry this one when I travel).  The somewhat hipster phase, where I carried a canvas messenger bag cross-body style.  And finally, where I am today, carrying a leather Frye Flap Brief Case.  This is the phase that my carry has evolved to.  The others may have had style without function, or function with absolutely no appeal to the eyes.  This bag and the limited space within allow for a practical carry system with loads of style.

Im sporting the Booq Boa Squeeze the original one with the felt lining, tried jumping to the newer one but missed the felt lining. Its a great bag Im always amazed at how compact it is and how much you can carry around in it.

Currently I'm using a Columbia book bag I carried in high school. Planning to buy a 5.11 Covert 18 in the near future. I live near a university and am in that area frequently, so I want something that'll blend in.

I carry this Copper River Bag Co. leather briefcase. It has a 3-compartment insert on the inside to keep things separated.

S.E.X.Y. bag, John!

 

I just got my first quality leather EDC bag.  I feel like it really steps up the class level of my carry.  I'm planning a bag dump submission for the main site soon.

Thanks! It was a gift from my wife when I finished grad school a couple years ago. It definitely steps up the level of class haha. The kids at school laugh and say that I have a "man purse." Pffff, kids these days...
