4 Types of Mission Bags for Deployment, Travel, or Work

Depending on what kind of journey you’re embarking on, you need a bag that’ll accompany you into the field. Whether you’re heading off on a weekend trip or packing up a month’s worth of supplies, we’ve got a huge variety of bags that’ll get the job done. Here are four standouts:

The Backpack

Vertx – EDC Gamut Plus Backpack - $169.95

Designed for Every Day Carry, the Gamut Plus can hold an impressive 35 liters. But where it truly shines is the quick accessibility it offers to a full-sized handgun. Plenty of moduler webbing on the shoulder straps provided additional attachment points for accessories, and the front features a hide-out convertible flap that reveals a panel of MOLLE webbing. A tactical genius. (Handgun not included. Get your own.)

Customer Review: Christopher B. - Police

This is the best bag. I have been using this bag every day for a while now. I carry it to work for office work / LEO job. I have also traveled with it once so far. Everything about the bag is very well thought out and high quality. If I show anyone the features of the bag they are very impressed as well. Love the design too. Excellent choice.

The Messenger Bag


Propper – OTS Messenger Bag - $89.95

Propper has developed a strong reputation among concealed carry enthusiasts, and it’s nowhere better demonstrated than the OTS Messenger. Secured against your back is a large CCW pocket, lined with loop, for easy access to your weapon. It’s got plenty of storage for every day carry, or a trip to the range. The shoulder strap is comfortable an ergonomic with a non-slip pad that feels good in midstride, and the breathable rear padding conforms to your back. It’s even got a zippered compartment that works perfectly with a hydration bladder.

Customer Review: Walter W. – Air Force

Out-freaking-standing bag! This is one of the best bags I've ever owned. Great for my tablet, laptop (11.5"), plus accessories. Or to use as my general carry bag, for all the stuff I need at work. Plenty of storage area and roomy too. It's a must-have, folks! Enough said!

The Duffle

5.11 Tactical – NBT Duffle Lima - $74.95

Pack up your gear with 5.11’s famous duffle. The midsize LIMA version of this multi-purpose, all-weather bag features 12 x 24 x 12 inches of storage space for all kinds of journeys. Includes a multipurpose removable pocket bag for storing toiletries and other small items as well as internal compression straps to keep valuable items from shifting around in transit. Made of 1050D tear-resistant nylon blend ensures your bag will give you years of reliability.

Customer Review: Arturo M. – Air Force

I needed a great multi-purpose duffle for working out and traveling. Well built bag, heavy duty stitching everywhere, strong/durable material and simple design. Shoulder strap is very comfortable and I was very surprised to see how small the pack comes shipped from the manufacturer also how fast the package arrived at my residence. Great customer service.

The Roller


Ogio – Tarmac 30 – $119.95

Ogio’s substantial Tarmac 30 featured 5,850 cubic inches of storage space, and its large main volume compartment includes a novel approach to storing all your gear and belongings: An adjustable divider lets you play Tetris with all your stuff, arranging everything economically and practically. The telescoping trolley handle is easy to use and never snags like inferior rollers, because the last thing you need on a long flight is to deal with is more frustration.

So far, so good! I'm still checking it out, but after several days of ownership, I'm pretty happy with this bag. It has plenty of room for all my travel needs.
