    Wow, now I could use a few of those!

    I like them. They only weigh 3.5 oz without the batteries and it has a USB charger also.
    I just bought 3 more for my daughter, granddaughter and grandson to add to their EDC.

    They have them on eBay for 16.00 ea, or you can buy them in bulk for even cheaper. They work well!

One for my hand held ham radio/walkies talkie which is a micro.. I'll post a pic of it. It's sweet, very thin and light weight.....and one for my water bottle. Those are my criteria's for an ideal EDC.

    Here's a pic of the ham I use. Hubs was in Brenham which is 53 miles from home and we were able to converse with no problems on these. Has a hell of a good built in antenna.

    Cammi, were you using a repeater to talk over the radio the 53 miles? I assume you were. Cool little radios

    I have no idea what that is. I'm not at all tech savvy. That's hubs department.
    What is a repeater?

    A repeater will take the signal you transmit and retransmit it. Usually are in a elevated location, top of a tall building or somewhere. Generally run at a higher power and extend the range greatly over what a handheld will do.

Front, back, either side. The waist belt secures it for balance very nicely. I can hardly tell I have it on, other than a little extra weight but it distributes the weight very well and it's very well made. Dbl stitching, water proof and has it's own built in rain coat and wicking. I LOVE IT!

    When I wear my other bag, I have to be careful when walking with a load because it's a backpack style which makes me have to walk leaning forward a bit. After a while, my backs hurts. This one is a shoulder style pack. Well worth the money for sure!

    Looks like the Maxpedition Noatak gearslinger bag. I've never owned a Maxpedition bag, but I'm very aware of their reputation as being top drawer equipment.

    Ive carried my Max bag for years. Its tough as hell and its starting to show its age. Itll go many more.

    I need to get a new bag for EDC myself so I might look into getting this one. Thanks for the recommendation!
