    Right now, a bunch of forms, snacks and a bit of extra gear(cuffs, traffic vest, etc.) Any essentials you guys cant live without that you keep in your gear bag?

    I have a briefcase sized laptop bag that contains: posse box (with some paper reports), pinch book, pens and a keyring with about 15 jiggle keys. I also carry my kevlar helmet in a carry bag, and it also contains my sunglasses, safety glasses and ear plugs.

    I work in an urban environment so there's really nothing else I *need* to tote with me.

    I dont prefer a bag, instead I like a Proguard seat organizer:

    [​IMG]

    3 carbine mags
    3 sidearm mags
    4 pairs cuffs
    traffic vest
    2x spare stinger battery
    spare WT battery
    orange traffic cone
    5 boxes shotshells
    narco field test kit
    2-3 packets of advil and immodium
    sharpie marker
    5 G2 pens
    ticket book
    forms holder
    mapbook
    non-traffic citation book
    mini PDR

    not in the organizer, but I never leave without a Nalgene full of water. Its there just in case I get stuck somewhere and dont have any water to drink.

    looking at it now that seems like a lot of crap, but it all has a place in there. If I had to load/unload daily I would use a bag. I have way too much crap in there for the factory straps to hold. I use a heavy duty bungee instead, but its a PITA to get strapped in.

    The only thing I would freak out about if I did not have is my iPod. Rest is just a buncha crap.

    It looks like I'm not the only one keeping his condom in his wallet.
