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.

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.

During working years, a laptop bag

Now, retired and living in city.
Mostly no bag, but a 15 liter bag is always nearby in the car trunk

35 litre backpack which is normally only 1/2 full.
Small PSK and survival kit, small tool kit and medium sized electronics kit, rain jacket, various cordage and lunch with my LM Surge strapped to the outside.

I can add my laptop easily or books/files for work. I like the flexibility to add items as I require.

Neither-my EDC goes in my pockets. if I am gearing up for something elaborate, it goes in a 35 liter backpack, almost all the time.
