Editor's Notes

January 30, 2019:

Whether for everyday carry or unique occasions, the Silent Pocket Waterproof, Faraday Defense Bug Out, and Mission Darkness Dry Shield were all selected thanks to their rugged durability and ability to shield their contents. The Travelon Signature Slim and Nomatic Anti-Theft 20L were also added, since they're fine options for travel, although it should be noted that they offer RFID-blocking pockets rather than protection for the entire bag.
