Station based and working in BFE so my call purse (yes, that is the local parlance) is set up a little different. I set the truck up every morning with my personal stuff for the 24 so stuff like a charger, steth, safety glasses, safety vest, and outerwear just goes in a compartment or in the cab.

The murse...Mountainsmith Day lumbar pack with backpack straps. I keep spare water, snacks, hot packs, rain pants, fresh socks, poly t-shirt, buff, hat, gloves, pens, extra light, leatherman, blowout type trauma kit, extrication/riding gloves, and 25' of webbing in there. Also have a Coaxsher radio harness in there that has a headlamp, flagging, more snacks, and a strobe for the helicopter to see us.

On off highway calls I take the radio harness out and throw my narcs and an IV start kit in. Lash a coat on and we're good to go for a hike/ATV ride.

I have both the Nitro and Prime. The nitro is the perfect size for me for an EDC work bag. I can fit everything I need to in it. The Prime is a bit big for an EDC for me so I use that as a range bag.
Awesome - thanks, this was just the kind of info I was looking for!

I have a North Face hot shot backpack. It has a rigid back so it you cram a bunch of stuff in you can comfortably carry it all day but it will flatten down well and fit behind seats well.

Sounds like you get into some awesome stuff on shift!

Well, every now and again. We have a few major trailheads that people come from Colorado Springs and Denver to play with their toys. And the whole Pikes Peak thing.

Ooo...I just went to their website and looked at it. I might have to buy one.
It’s a little smaller than it looks, but that’s ok because it forces you to carry only what you need. I’ve owned one of and on for since 1999 and my last one I handed down to my youngest son who uses it as his daily EDC bag - still going strong and looking good after 10 years! I saw it when we were at his wedding a year ago and it still looks great (he is notoriously hard on gear)

What are y’all carrying all your stuff in for shift? When I was in paramedic school I had a large backpack that had my textbooks, laptop and stuff in it. Now I’m out and looking for something big enough to carry my phone chargers, iPad, stethoscope and headphones in, but is still small enough to be hidden behind the seat or such.
Our service issues 5.11 wingman bags which store our PPE (i.e. helmet, vest, etc.) and other misc. personal items. Durable and plenty of space.
