When it comes to EDC, a “heavy duty” bag doesn't necessarily have to weigh a ton. When you combine the right materials, hardware, and design, you can get a lot of the same performance you'd expect from a much heavier bag. But the real challenge is execution: it's a complex and expensive manufacturing process to achieve a high performance, ultralight bag. If there's anyone who's up to the challenge, it's the Vancouver-based, up-and-coming technical apparel designer who goes by the Techwear Intern. He's proven his design chops by creating a new piece of gear—ranging from innovative bags to first-of-its-kind jackets—every day for 30 days straight. By partnering with Massdrop, he's combining his technical knowhow with high-performance materials to bring you a modular carry pouch system at a price that's hard to beat.

This first release comes as an entire set of pouches collectively dubbed the Modular Adaptive Carry System (MACS). The biggest benefit of a modular system like this is how you can get your setup totally dialed for your exact needs, even as they change. The MACS comes in two types of pouches: the larger Carry Packits and smaller Center-Zip Pockets. The Packits are essentially single-cavity zippered stuff sacks (available in sizes from small to X-Large) ideal for larger, bulkier items. The accompanying Zip Pockets more closely resemble a pencil pouch, useful for quick access or consolidating small, loose essentials. They can be mounted together as a more complete bag option, separated for bag-in-bag packing, or used alone, thanks to the myriad of attachment options available: velcro, MOLLE, G-Hooks, C-Hooks, and integrated carry handles. This sort of versatility is especially valuable when you need to pack differently for various settings: urban EDC, outdoor, travel, school/work, and more.

No matter what you're doing, the MACS features materials that are durable enough and light enough to go anywhere. They feature a fully waterproof and impressively lightweight X-Pac laminated ripstop fabric that's made in the USA for durability and all-round protection. The zippers are also made in the USA and boast extreme water resistance to further keep your gear dry. Even the buckles and hardware use a proprietary thermoplastic polymer that retains strength and stability when exposed to various conditions. By opting for all these lightweight materials, bulk and fatigue under load are non-issues. It's especially crucial for a modular setup that can end up being fairly expansive.

Whether you're looking for a messenger bag, a gear organizer, an ultralight travel belt, or anything in between, Massdrop and the Intern probably have a combination for you in this first drop. The best part is it won't set you back too much either, thanks to Massdrop's production help. Check it out in full detail at the link below and secure your MACS setup before the drop ends July 12th, with options starting at under $20.

The quality looks great, and the prices not too bad as well but I need more organization options (loops, pockets, etc.) Dump bags end up being too messy for me. Still looking for that product that fills the gap between an organization pouch and a full on messenger bag without too many compromises.
