    Get-Home Bag

    I have a backpack that I bring to work, it used to be filled with junk but has recently been restocked with Get-Home Gear. The bag itself is nothing special and I'm planning to replace it this week. This morning this was more obvious when there was a nightlight in the hall that illuminated the two reflective areas on the shoulder straps. Not good to be luminescent.

    Looking for suggestions on bags. I know Maxpedition is popular, and that's in my price-range ($125-$150). But are there any other suggestions?

    It can't be too big because it won't be something that just stays in my trunk. I drive a CMV so I'll have constantly transfer it to multiple vehicles daily.

    Molle is good, camo is not. Shouldn't look too military.

    Any suggestions would be helpful, thanks.

    You really cant go wrong with Maxpedition, the gear is bulletproof. I've got a laptop case I've carried for six years, really can't beat it. Tactical Tailor also makes some nice gear, http://www.tacticaltailor.com/urbanoperatorpack.aspx

    Of course you can always go the 5.11 route, it's decent gear I guess but I've never been a fan.

    What are the pros and cons of pressing a standard backpack/daypack into this role. I have a few ideas of my own, especially since the continued move to ultralight has also moved further from durability, but I am curious as to what others think.

    Not everything that's light is less durable. My favorite spork is titanium.

    Lol. True. My backpacks for hiking are really not as durable with the thin materials today as my older ones made of heavy cordura.

    There are trade offs of course.

    The 5.11 rush 72 is a great bag from what everyone says. I'm trying to get a hold of one so I can do a review.

    Made in Idaho

    Eberlestock makes great packs, but usually more sniper sized. They do have a new one called "Dagger" that's daypack sized and can fit a carbine inside. I have the Lo-Drag, used to own a Gunslinger and love both of them. (hint, buy them off Ebay...way cheaper than the website)
