I just switched bags for my every day carry/get home bag/patrol bag for work as a LEO. I switched to the Vertx EDC ready pack and it is by far the best backpack I have ever used. I have a LOT of gear loaded up in it with a little room to spare in the main compartment. That is a spot where I place my wallet, keys, and a sandwich when I am working. So keep in mind I have a lot of paperwork and different goodies I like to have in it for work, in addition to the other usual stuff. Anyway...this bag serves several purposes. It is not my bug out bag, but it does go with me everywhere. It comes with me no matter what vehicle I am in, or what I am doing for the day. I just cut a little weight from the pack by switching out a couple of items and it weighs in right at 20 pounds. Heavy for an edc bag? Yes. But it is more than just an edc bag for me Anybody else carry a bag around every day? Ever weigh it? What does it weigh?
