First off is the bag, it's a PacSafe Metro Safe 300. I bought it earlier this year for traveling, but I couldn't justify the coin on a bag to only get used when I'm out of the country, so it makes sense to use it at home too.
Some of the bag's features (from the PacSafe website)
Here's a closeup of the lock on the shoulder strapPacsafe wrote:• eXomesh® slashguards
• Slashproof carrysafe™ strap
• Smart zipper security™
• Padded 13" laptop sleeve
• Large main zippered compartment with 2 organiser pockets
• Front zippered organiser pocket with 2 padded electronic gadget pockets
• Back zippered pocket with concealable zipper pocket
• Removable backpack harness which stores in back pocket
• 2 water bottle / compact umbrella side pockets
• Headphone port
• Card slots / pen holder / key clip
The bag also has hidden backpack straps. They're not great, but they allow me to change the weight distribution if I overfill the bag. I suppose I could swap them out for the set of spec-ops super straps I just got in the mail
The bag itself isn't huge, but it holds everything I need on a daily basis, These Items are;
Pocket change + City transit tokens
Sea to Summit Pocket soap
Aquatabs purification tablets (just added these to the FAK)
Battery backup for iPhone (this also has a 2GB memory built into it)
First aid kit
And with everything packed in ...
While packing things up, I decided I could fit a shemagh into one of the inside pockets. Here's everything packed up, including my laptop for reference. There isn't much room left when you include the computer, but it's enough for any errands I would run without my car.
Changes and upgrades I plan on making:
Smaller umbrella, this one is usually in my car, I stole it earlier this week because it was raining.
Eyeglass case to protect the sunglasses.
Encryptable memory stick for security.
Adding a flashlight, even a keychain led.
Outside of the bag are a few items I keep in my pockets daily,
iPhone (used to take photo, holster pictured)
Headphones (for iPhone)
and keys (not pictured, but nothing special)
