I got the hip pack for Christmas, and at first, I wasn't gung ho trying it out.
Until I actually wore it.
It felt like I didn't have anything there at all!
I was totally shocked to be honest. I figured no way is this going to stay up fully loaded...nope, no problem, worked great. The only problem is that
my normal backpack sits too low on my back, to wear with it well. I need to find a backpack that doesn't hang down as far to really wear both easy.
To best answer the OP though, my absolute favorite is my EDC. It's a rather unique idea. My work laptop case. Unlike my GHB/BOB or hip pack, my
laptop case is with me inside the building, so at all times. In it, I have some basic essentials to help in an emergency. I can't have a firearm in
the office, (and not risking my job for it)...but an ASP baton is no problem. My metal water bottle can clip to it with a carabiner. Small first aid
kit, flashlight, lighter, some beef jerky, OTC meds, multi-tool, Swiss-style knife, a backup cell battery, map, compass, water purifiers, potassium
iodine tabs, Cipro, surgical mask, rubber gloves, emergency poncho, and emergency thermal blanket. All innocently stored inside its pockets.
