Garage sale school bag. Non-discript. I prefer a gym bag on a strap though. No one wants that.

I have used LA police gear 3 day bags for yrs.
They have a padded back and you can install a frame panel if you like. Sure you will need to make the panel but that only requires a quick trip to T.A.P. plastics and 10min with a saw.
Retail abt 49.00, reg. price abt 39.00, often on sale for Much less!

I carry a vertx edc bag in and out of the office everyday. It carries my laptop plus a g17 and two spare mags. No one has ever given it a second glance in two years. It's all black and inconspicuous. Each vehicle we have has all supplies that can be loaded up in the bag in case the need the head home on foot.

It's not a GHB... but I just got a Hazard 4 Takedown on Woot for $70....
Securely holds my AR broken down with room for 5 extra mags, IFAK, freeze dried food, ostrim, protein bars, canteen,, extra knives, water purifier... everything I need. Fits perfectly over my plate carrier and doesnt restrict access to anything on my belt except my last horizontal rifle mag on the back. But my experience is totally contradictory to "Grey Man". The people that you are trying to avoid through that philosophy are cowards and opportunists... Maybe it's different in Afghanistan. I cant recall the number of times I came to the aid of plain clothes detectives.. in a few cases it was full out mob mentality. When the 250lb bodybuilder steps out of the cruiser with a loaded plate carrier and charges an AR15... they scatter like cockroaches... trampling one another

2 plain clothes Detectives < 75 BLM hoodlums in a section 8 community
2 plain clothes Detectives and one physically intimidating officer in terms of size, gear, and conviction > 75 BLM hoodlums. Experience trumps theory everytime

5.11 Rush12 for GHB. Originally got it to take to the range, but replaced it (in that role) for a Boyt range bag.

At some point I might replace the Rush12 with something more discreet (that can still provide the same functionality) and commit the Rush12 to BOB duties...

I bought a Fieldline brand backpack at Walmart in the hunting department. It has lots of pockets, a hydration bladder, nice wide shoulder straps, and a hip belt. It is made of thick fabric and has heavy duty zippers. Best part is the price was only around $40. I keep it packed with gear in my closet. We have had several flooding events and hurricanes in the last several years so I never know when I will have to evacuate.

Got a waterproof/windproof reversible backpack cover from a yard sale. So now it doesn't matter what my pack looks like because with the cover, the pack looks like it belongs to a pre-teen/early teen because of the design on one side and the other side is dark in case I need to blend, or suddenly change my outward appearance.

Bonus... it holds water, so it can be used for collecting, washing, etc. Make it easy to gut a rabbit, etc.. and then dispose of the entrails so no mess left behind or on me. And then reusable

I chose it because I like the water bottle pockets.

I don't think it matters much what pack you have as long as it's comfortable to carry. I will have to walk 20+ miles to get home if the bridges are out after a major earthquake. I plan to do it in one day so I will travel light, not carrying much more than what you'd put in a day-hiking pack.

Super super late reply but my wife bought me a vertx bag as my upgraded about three weeks after I started this post. I’m not sure what model it is, but it fits my bill superbly. Very comfortable and handles my items very well especially with the multiple compartments within. I highly recommend this brand.

OD 5.11 Rush 24, is what I use for my BOB. I use a black Jansport sling bag as my EDC bag. My vehicle bag is an inexpensive (5 dollar thrift shop find) no name nylon ruck/large day pack. It keeps my vehicle kit together and not scattered around in the trunk.

Osprey Zenith 105. Just another backpack. Can handle up to 80 lbs of weight. If I'm having to deal with SHTF event, I want to be able to carry some supplies in it.

For shorter time periods, I use the old Army butt pack that straps on to the pistol belt that holds magazine pouches, canteens and so on. The butt pack lets me carry enough food for about a 3 day patrol.

For longer range missions I use an Army rucksack. When properly loaded, you can use one of those for up to an 8 day mission. You won't have any room for luxury items when you're going out for a long range and long time mission but you can do it when needed.

Of the 2 packs, the butt pack is the more useful and convenient to use. In the recon units we would try all sorts of things to stretch our food supplies out but keep them small too. One guy I knew tried using vitamins and rolled oats one time for a recon mission. The vitamins and minerals gave him the nourishment that he needed and the oats filled his stomach but he ended up missing flavors and textures when he ate. Next time he tried the same thing with candy bars added and it was better for him but it still lacked something he felt that he needed. He gave up the rolled oats idea after about 4 recon missions.

Guys were all the time trying different ideas and things to lighten their loads and extend their mission capabilities using their rucksacks and butt packs.

I have the old 3 day assault pack issued to me back in the 90s.
I only have a 4 mi commute to/from work, so during the nicer weather months it is pretty light. During the winter I load it up with cold weather gear, extra socks, fleece, etc... Flashlights and headlamps as well because of reduced daylight in those months.

Do you have pics?? I'm considering a Vertx bag... but in the other hand the Eberlstock Lo Drag II would allow me to carry my 338 Lapua on my back.. AR rifle slung, and pistol on my belt if I ever had to hump it for a bit...
