Hey Guys, and Gals, I am planning to get a new EDC pack that is a bit smaller and lighter than the one I currently have( maxpedition Pigmy flacon). it doesn't need to carry much, mostly just a few odds and ends and my CC gun, I dont feel comfortable having it on me at work but want it close to me in case some crazy customer comes in with a gun or an employee goes bizerk. I can crouch under my desk and ready pistol in a matter of seconds, then wait for an opportunity to either strike or defend. the one im considering is the 3V Gear Bandit. I already have the 3V Gear paratus 3 day pack which i have im my truck as a GHB. https://3vgear.com/3vgear-bandit-hydration-pack.html I also carry the usual EDC stuff: multi tool poncho various medicine bandaids gum flashlight knife pen paper sharie lightstick paracord gloves(winter) beanie(winter) water cellphone charger cord extra mag lip balm lotion shemagh i probably left out a thing or two, but thats the gist of it here's the kicker. Im not a water bladder person. I prefer water bottles, either disposable or reusable, I'm just not a fan of bladders. so even though this bandit pack is made for a bladder i think it will serve me well. I can throw a water bottle in instead. and i can use the bladder if im going hiking or whatever, i just dont see it practical to use the bladder every day. so thoughts?
