Are you a big bag person (backpack, laptop briefcase) or a small bag (tablet size, purse, etc.) person?

EDC = Pocket carry so that would be small no bag.
OTOH, my latest acquisition is an REI Ruckpack 28 (1709 ci), which probably qualifies as a medium pack for EDC, not large, but bigger than my Patagonia Atom Sling at 488 ci.

Loc: USA
Work: Laptop bag. Itís not terribly small.

Outdoors stuff: Generally a Camelbak MULE, which is a midsize bag.

Long events related to my recombinant DNA: Either my laptop bag or a smaller bag for my tablet and a power bank.

Itís colossally unsubtle but I have a 5.11 fanny pack for when Iím out on a bike ride.

Most other activities, no bag.
