UTG Tactical Messenger Bag
As far as bang for buck goes, the UTG Tactical Messenger Bag (made by Leapers) is about as good as it gets. It’s a very close copy of Maxpeditions Jumbo Versipack, but at a much more affordable price.
Many people have reported messy stitching and loose threads – but this can be easily fixed by burning the loose threads with a lighter, and at such a great price, who cares.
- Pros: Inexpensive
- Cons: Messy stitching
Maxpedition Pocket Organizer
The Maxpedition Pocket Organizer is a great addition to your main EDC bag, and can easily be carried with you when you wouldn’t normally take a full EDC bag. It can hold a surprisingly large amount of tools, and is a great way to carry all those small items that can easily get lost in a larger bag.
- Pros: Well constructed, intelligent design
- Cons: None
Maxpedition Jumbo Versipack
Maxpedition’s Jumbo Versipack is one of the world’s most popular EDC bags for a reason. It’s incredibly well made from 91000-Denier water and abrasion resistant ballistic nylon fabric, and is very ergonomically designed. It comes in a variety of colors, and packs a lot into a relatively small space.
- Pros: Extremely well made
- Cons: Expensive
The Monsoon Gearslinger is a cross between Maxpedition’s traditional backpacks, and their Versipacks. It has a single quick release non-slip shoulder strap, which makes it very comfortable to wear over bulky clothes, and is very quick to put on and take off.
- Pros: Built like a tank
- Cons: Single strap may not suit everyone
