    Wanting to approach my BOB/GHB differently

    I currently use a 3 day backpack with a modulare system of pouches inside it. I am now leaning towards a tactical bag like a Maxpedition MPB, 5.11 Sidetrip, Emdom TNT etc. and make it modular.

    lookign for anybody who has had one of these style bags or these particular bags. Also any suggestions on where to purchase one for less than MSRP would be appreciated.

    Just a thought for you, but that style of bag is going to get in the way a bit more. The nice thing about a backpack, is it leaves your hands free. A bag with just one strap you throw over your shoulder will feel heavier with the same weight load, since it puts all the weight on one part of your body (one shoulder vs. two), and tends to move around more when you need to move quickly, and requires more adjustment. I once had to do a patrol with a bag like that, and it took a lot of adjustments to get it to sit somewhere comfortable. Too low and your legs knock into it while you walk or run, too high and it feels like the strap is trying to choke you.

    I would stick with the daypack, but that is just me.

    Very good point Buckeye....I am considering that to some extent. Not 100% about the switch. I do have a Maxpedition Sitka that I could put my personal BOB essentials which is a shoulder pack, just a sling style. I guess this bag would be an "overflow" bag with things that will ride in my vehicle and not be "have to" items.

    And part of it is me wanting some new gear too....LOL
