This probably should go into the rant thread, but I was walking in the Riverside Mall the other day in New Orleans and there was a young teenager wearing a plate carrier in there. Not sure what kind of fashion statement he was trying to make, but it reinforced my overall disdain for MOLLE on regular people.


For those that don't know what a plate carrier is:

Clearly this dipshit wasn't using it as intended, because usually there's 20+lbs of steel plates in there. Hauling that shit around all day is no fun.

Tacticool sheik. Was he wearing a shemagh too?

Bag whore that I am, as much as I lust after all the great packs out there, these two are pretty hard to beat for my use. The duffel is a Triple Aught Design that folds into its own pocket, can convert into a backpack, and is bomb and water resistant (VX sailcloth construction). Only has two mesh pockets, one external that it folds up into to be about the size of a small frisbee, and an internal one that's large, where I put dirty laundry. When I need a suit, I use a Briggs and Riley roller carry-on. I guess if I have a gap it's a large travel ruck that could support some tech, but the trip that requires that hasn't happened yet. They're clearing these out for $91 right now. https://tripleaughtdesign.com/shop/azimuth-duffel/

The backpack is an old Briggs & Riley @work model. It's on the small side, but that makes it good for under the seat in front of me on a plane and appropriate for business. It has great internal organization and durability. Would love a bit more water resistance, the pen holders are too small, and the water bottle pocket is really just a pocket, but that's about it as far as gripes go. Otherwise perfect, this thing has put my beloved Acronym 3A-5TS messenger back in the closet. Boring and practical won out over cool and modular.

@mclaincausey the Azimuth duffle looks great.

My girlfriend says I can't get one because we're broke! ;D

I picked one of these up a few months ago and really really like it. Previously I was using a Goruck GR1. The 3sixteen/dspatch is a bit smaller but i find it more enjoyable so far. I can get pictures if need be.

I've even though of getting another color as a backup.

yeah they look very similar to the GR1. i've been looking at the Goruck for years but i couldn't find the use/need for a second bag pack. the 20L visvim i have serves all my purpose..  :'(

Do it @Cutlasshound it's simple, but pretty damn great, and a steal at <$100

It's a perfect gym bag @Anesthetist , great materials and the internal mesh pocket is good for dirty gym clothes. External is good for keys and such.
Think it, be it.

@Alex I don't know if you've found a bag yet, but Carryology posted a guide to waterproof backpacks last week.

I like the Arc'teryx LEAF DryPack best, but I don't like the price. :)
