    This one is made by Condor....they are a bit cheaper made than Maxpedition, but for the money a VERY GOOD VALUE.

    This should carry everything you need, plus have room for more. I carry similar items in mine. I love this pack.

    I realize that Sixto already found what he's looking for but this is a phenomenal thread and I can see some good implications for others. For example, this would be GREAT for hunters to check out for a day-bag into the forest and away from the truck.

    Is there any chance we could sticky this?

    There has been a lot of great suggestions here with some really cool bags. I've been having a lot of fun sorting through them all.

    Sixto, I have the bag from One Source, and it would be pretty close to what you're looking for. While it isn't perfect, it isn't bad and any needed adjustments could probably be made without too much difficulty.

    Agreed, and we all have different requirements.

    I bought the bag I chose because I would be able to use the Maxpedition Multi Purpose bag to carry a computer, files, cords, etc. and it has a nice way to conceal a pistol with fairly easy access. I do wish there was a pocket held closed by velcro that would allow me to conceal a pistol in there while the rest of the pockets and areas were closed. I may have chose the wrong bag of my choices.

    I "grew up" recently and got rid of my tactical nylon bags and bought a Saddleback Large Leather briefcase. He sells cheaper than listed on eBay. Check out this review . The bag is my everything bag from the range to work to a day with the kids. It's classy, converts from messenger to backpack, gets better looking over time, and camoflagues well in an urban enviro. Pricey but a lifetime bag that I can pass on to my son.

    Try Chrome. They are a high quality messenger bag that stays put very well. They also are extremely easy to get on and off. Also, many other nifty features, that all have a function. There are no toys on/in them just for the sake of toys.

    Those are really nice jarhead... maybe I'll buy one when I grow up, if that ever happens.

    I like the classic looks, but I would destroy one of those in a year easily.

    I know you are looking at a lot of shoulder bags, but two liters of water plus six pistol mags plus four rifle mags are going to kill your shoulder if you spend any significant time carrying it. And it is going to be awkward running with it.

    It's not perfect, but you might take a look at the Maxpedition Condor-II backpack.

    It's what I currently use as my EDC bag (previously Maxpedition Jumbo and Kifaru E&E).

    If you look at the pictures, you can see the top pocket would work for handgun mags, and the bottom probably will do four M4 mags. I don't have any M4 mags, but it looks like it would eat 4-6 20rd. FN FAL mags, and perhaps 30rd. mags if stored horizontally.

    You could attach a water bottle pocket on one or both sides. It accepts a small Camelback style system also and has a system to hold a handgun in the back panel.

    With the PALS attachments, you an make it do pretty much anything you need.

    I know it is a bit more tactical looking than you are looking for, but being a backpack probably counters that a little bit.

    After carrying my Jumbo loaded up for long periods and trying to do a bit of running here and there, I just think that shoulder bags are not optimal for this kind of thing.

    I'd be happy to answer any questions I can about the Maxpedition Jumbo, Fatboy, Condor II and Kifaru E&E.

    Edit: What about a vest, worn under a cover garmet? If you wore all the mags on your person, your bag becomes very small and you could ditch it if you had to.

    If ordering from Maxpedition read their return policy. Its pretty strict and not very customer friendly. As I read the policy if you cut the tags off they won't accept a return. That is pretty strict for snipping a replaceable piece of plastic.

    I might have to ditch everything at some point, a vest would not work.
