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:


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
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.
