It's a big EDC market out there, and tons of awesome gear is released all the time. We made The Drop to help you discover the latest and greatest essentials worth a spot in your EDC.

The problem with lightweight bags is that they can be too fragile. If you're looking to pack light but still get through the scrapes of everyday life, Mystery Ranch is one of your best bets. Their decades of experience and decades-long lifetime warranty for craftsmanship puts their bags near or at the top of hard-use practicality. And they've teamed up with our friends at Huckberry to make the Greenbelt Hybrid backpack, which features comfortable, lightweight carry and ease of access second to none.

The Greenbelt features 30 liters of capacity and a rip-open design that lets you get complete access to the interior organization spaces of the bag. There's a padded laptop and tablet space for your tech essentials and smaller organizational pockets for pens and stationery. The lightweight ripstop nylon construction creates an excellent middle ground between durability and heft, and the ballistic nylon exterior panel helps with abrasion resistance.

With its exterior elastic webbing and water bottle pockets, this bag works well when you take it to the great outdoors after a long workweek. And the classic green and brown look complements the heritage-inspired look well. Plus, with its water-resistant coating, you can keep your everyday carry essentials packed inside high and dry from the rain.

What we like: With its smart looks and versatile opening, the Greenbelt Hybrid backpack is a convenient everyday carry bag whether you're out touching grass or dreaming about doing that from your office.

What to watch out for: We wish this bag took advantage of Mystery Ranch's hallmark tri-zip design, but its more unstructured nature lends itself to the more traditional front panel and lid mechanism featured on the Greenbelt Hybrid.

Final verdict: This Mystery Ranch bag can be found exclusively at the Huckberry store, and if you're looking for a lightweight yet ultra-durable bag that will last you for decades to come, look no further than the Greenbelt Hybrid 30L.
