I am in the market for a new carry bag.  I have decided to go with a backpack design due to its ease of use in travel.  What are the recommendations from this board?


If I could make my own, it would have the following:


- 40 liter capacity

- A removable waistbelt

- Front loading

- Internal supports

- Adjustable straps for shoulders, chest, and compression

- a warranty

- Hydration capable

- a hybrid (can go from travel bag to suitcase to backpack sort of thing)


Do they even make such an animal?  If so, where would you get it? What do you use and why? And finally, what other qualities do you want in an EDC bag?


I'm looking for advise, so please provide your best input.  Thanks.

Check out Redd Ox backpacks. They are arguably the finest made backpacks in America. Montana based I think.

You could check out the Tom Bihn line up of backpacks. The Brain Bag and Western Flyer might appeal to you.

You might check out First Tactical Tactix 1 day plus pack. I have the 0.5 half day which is a little smaller than the 1 day. Awesome packs.

I find this bag simple yet spacious, try to check it out maybe you will like it. Also, if you love traveling with a dog then might as well check this pet carrier. You can bring your buddy anywhere in a more convenient way.
