Laugh all you want, but when it comes to your EDC backpack or bag, size matters. Ok, now that you’ve gotten the childish giggles out of your system, let’s talk about backpack sizing. Ultimately, the correct size backpack comes down to your kit.
Over the years, my everyday carry kit has grown beyond the limits of most conventional backpacks. I needed a versatile solution that could function as my laptop bag during the week, and a weekend getaway pack when I wasn’t at the office. However, the caveat was that I didn’t want to be constantly unpacking parts of my kit to reallocate space. Enter the 5.11 Tactical RUSH 24 backpack.
My kit has transformed over the years, as a matter of fact, it changes almost weekly. Depending on what I’m doing, where I’m going, and how long I intend to stay, my kit will adjust accordingly. However, despite these variations, my EDC weight fluctuates very little. Of course, there are exceptions, like extended camping trips or hikes when extra gear is required.
Packing an EDC bag can be a big undertaking, and selecting the proper bag is a big part of the process. You’ll need to consider a large range of factors and features. Size is an obvious choice, but there are plenty of other features when selecting your EDC bag.
I was fortunate enough to be brought up in an environment that fostered preparedness. From an early age I was introduced to the basics of firearm handling, care, and maintenance. The more I watch the news and hear about active shooters, human trafficking, and the like the more I am convinced that children be prepared.
