My EDC Backpack (Everyday Carry bag) has been a video that’s requested over and over again. Currently I’m using the Vertx EDC Gamut bag, and I’ve been really happy with it. It’s a well thought out, nicely laid out, highly functional bag. Looks nice, works great, and has all of the features I’m looking for. The Vertx EDC Gamut is definitely one worth looking into.

Andrew Bethel says:

Know any that are good for 17″ laptops?

JonnyChapps says:

Great review! Thank you!

Dave McKenzie says:

Thanks for the discount code. Got the new Burnt Sienna gamut plus with the 25% discount!

brittney haggerty says:

what does this have to do with ocd??

Eli Hintz says:

That’s an ugly color way

Aaron Richardson says:

take that travel safe bag without that black pouch and you still have medical skizzers lol

Antonio Botello says:

Great review and nice color.

francisco lacoste says:

you US Americans are so afraid of being shot…. do you have an ongoing domestic war or something? why are you so afraid?

Rylee Alvarado says:


Donovan Wright says:

Hey man,
Great video. Have you ever considered doing a last line of defense limited edition with vertex because your Edc bags are very well thought out and it looks like a good bag.

Darren Lehman says:

It seems to me the EDC Gamut can be configured almost as a sling style bag by unclipping the straps, switching one strap to the other side and tucking the other strap into the concealed carry and plate section. Could you potentially review that and provide some insight as to how it feels/works. I am thinking about purchasing an EDC Gamut and would like to know the feasibility of carrying the bag that way before I do. Thanks!

Erik Soriano says:

This review and backpack is really awesome! I have a MSI Stealth Pro 17″ it’s 16.25″ x 11.25″ x 3/4″, do you think this fits? i can’t find anything that fits a 17″ for EDC.

M3anBIMMER says:

Just got the premier body armor panel for my gamut plus. Not even close to fitting right. 3 inches too short and over 2.5 inches too narrow. Not impressed

mars GIA says:

Where can I get the Mac Pro camo cover?

Matt Loy says:

Where did you get the multi cam black laptop cover?

A. Todd Moore says:

is the discount code still good?

NorthernFirepower says:

Just started using my new Gamut + after wearing out a 5.11 Covert 18. Some nice differences and lots of additional room! Your reviews are great, Thanks!

VegitaGT says:

Any idea when this color comes out?

Yak1B says:

Great setup, and nice bag choice!

Joey Henderson says:

Mike, thanks for such a great review. Just ordered this bag and I appreciate the 25% off!

Dan M says:

I never thought about keeping bladed tools in a separate pouch. I’ve had to get rid of three swiss army knives and ship a leatherman because I forget to take them out of my backback.

MATT22RIO says:

Where do I get that awesome laptop skin!?

j unc says:

Sometimes I wonder how much the “organization” part of the bag weighs vs the actual tools inside. It would be interesting to see all of the bags and pouches, etc removed and weighed against the actual items you’re carrying. I don’t have any backpack type bags, but I’ve got several EDC type pouches and sometimes I think the bags take up more weight and volume than the actual stuff I’m carrying.

Seth Messer says:

LOVE this pack recommendation and this video. I ended up picking it up based on this video and then a few other reviews of it as well. I have a similar load out now. Thanks tons for your content!

Question for you:
Have you thought about a way to use this EDC bag as your get-home bag, supplemented with a more focused get-home module/patch/bag/something that you keep in your truck? I’ve been thinking of ways to make use of a smaller “get home” module that i can carry along with this vertx gamut with a similar EDC bag setup as yours.

John Carter says:

Last Line Of Defense cool back pack, I also wear a ballistic panel Material: UHMWPE NIJ IIIA 3A, 0,5 kg this gives a safe feeling, as up date to my edc bag

Donald Denny says:

I have the Gamut. My only complaint is the side pockets. If you use a water bottle; it makes the side pocket useless.

Steve Sheehan says:

where did you get multicam wrap for the MacBook?

Sam Diaz says:

Hey bro, when will this bag come out? Love the review btw, I need this bag it’s perfect for me but I want this color, it looks amazing

RB_06 LJ says:

You should consider keeping a TQ in one of the side zippered pouches

Kody Marshall says:

Dear youtube, stop shoving your ads down our throats…if you cant make youtube free without ads, then do us all a favor and DIE..then come back when you can afford to do it for free 🙂

The Goodwolf says:

Any links for the black multicamMac vinyl cover?

Gabriel Menoncin says:

Man, “Last line of defense” is a fucking good name for this kind of channel.

Gary Busey's Pubic Hair says:

LOL at the wive’s apology.

Are Array says:


justingrosskopf says:

Can’t decide between the gamut or edc ready pack for my edc bag. Needs to be able to fit lunch and laptop as well as firearm and such. Gamut seemed a bit overkill but seems to be enough room

Troy Dodson says:

Where’s the medical

Darren Becker says:

I love my Gamut bag. I see that they redesigned the top grab strap because mine came off 2 maybe 3 weeks after I purchased it.

christian seely says:


Basp 2005 says:

The number one thing I never understand about these edc bags. There’s never any room left to use it as a bag for day to day stuff. They are all packed to the gills with all this tacticool stuff. (That rarely gets used, if ever) Leaving no room for all the crap your girlfriend wants you to hang onto at the theme park. My “every once in a while” bag has lots of room to spare for, you know, things people use bags for.

Andrew Fionik says:

Very good backpack, but no outside compression straps, which is bad.

El Bat says:

Where are your condoms

Spartacus Roma says:

What jacket are you wearing at 2:25?

Kody Marshall says:

Also does this have velcro at top for morale patch?

H&H Music says:

I bought this bag right after I watched this video

9mm_ Toter says:

Hey brotha; you’ve probably been doing this longer then I have I just feel that in an emergency blood loss or trauma type emergency you may be looking all over your bag for something specific rather then if it were all in one concentrated area

mars GIA says:

Nice bag. You are organized. What a neat bag. I wish the Tactical Backpack companies would make me a Camera pack. You’ve need to go hiking to use that toilet paper.

Todd Barraza says:

What can I do to start my own beginner edc bag
