    yes
    Lots of useful things, but iodine tablets suck.
    Try these instead.

    I'm in the market for a new EDC that I can carry my 14" Ultrabook in for work as well as have plenty of room to store the essentials.

    I love Maxpedition's stuff and plan on getting another Universal CCW holster as well as their magazine holder for one of the interior pockets.

    I was looking at the Kodiak Gearslinger, but it's pretty expensive and may be too big for my needs.

    The only other work-related stuff I carry is a backup power supply for the laptop, an iPhone charger, my glasses case and a few USB thumb drives.

    Thanks!

    Instead of buying just premium, try phase separating too. It removes teh ethanol content and requires marginal effort. Ethanol free gas, lasts way longer.

    Or be lazy and buy race gas/aviation gas. If you feel like spending an extra 20 bucks on a fill up

    Phase separation isn't a problem since I use Shell V-Power; there's no ethanol to remove.

    Some of you may be interested in the Mr. Funnel Fuel Filter Funnel. I've never used one, but it looks useful, and Hopkins makes good products.

    If you ever use that, be prepared to back flush it frequently. Relying on human suction makes it simpler, but it'll also be difficult to develop much suction compared to a traditional water filter pump.

    I use an MSR Hyperflow filter with an add-on pre-filter. It's based on the same microtube filter technology. If at all possible, let the water sit for a few minutes so larger particulates accumulate on the bottom of a container. A friend has the same Hyperflow, without a pre-filter, and without patience. His clogged up after a few days of use when sucking straight from fairly clean, flowing water. I used the same water sources, but the pre-filter, a Sea-to-Summit Kitchen Sink, and daily back flushing kept mine working properly.

    You're too nice. Internet tough guy is obviously brain damaged and demonstrates a shameful disservice to those that have served and suffered.

    I have the usual mess of knives, flashlights, and multitool scattered throughout the truck, but I also have a small day pack I keep in my backseat (toolbox when I get it). It has:

    Water Filter (UV and filtration packets)
    Flashlight and headlamp
    Chem Lights (UV and Reg)
    Emergency Blanket and Emergency Bivvy sack
    Emergency Poncho
    550 Cord
    GPS
    Batteries
    Short K-Bar
    3 field stripped MREs
    2 Water Bottles (60 oz) Capacity
    Weatherproof Matches
    Dry sealed kindling stick
    Magnesium fire starter
    Emergency medical kit (Built with a Corpsman I work with, not storebought)
    Compass

    It's one of those things I am constantly adding to, but the bag is a small Mountain Hardware day pack that only weighs about 15 pounds (This one). Perfect emergency bag, or I can take it hiking, hunting, etc. and keep myself out of most trouble for a few days if I get stuck, hurt, etc. It has straps that would fit an AR-7 or small takedown bow perfectly, so I think that is my next step.

    Here's one for you, I keep a GHB in the truck to get to my BOB, the GHB is built for urban environments ( I live in a fairly large city) and have it in mind that I need to get from one side to the other. My BOB goes with me when I travel outside the extended area. Aside from the normal recovery gear in the truck, I also keep some tools to clear debris, mark hazards, provide medical care for trauma, and work my way back home. Anyone else do this?
