modular bail-out-bag / laptop-soft-brief

One of the bags used most frequently and in varied capacities is the 'bail-out', 'bug-out', or ‘go-bag'. Whatever you call them, we call ours Ditch™. This is the bag that will become your closest companion once you discover its amazing features. The soft-briefcase-style format can load-out numerous modular containers on its front surface MOLLE-system, but keep them hidden/protected under an optional unassuming flap mounted to the rear with an ingenious flat-lock system. You can also buy it preassembled with the flap in the ‘Messenger of Doom™’ (MOD) configuration. This bag has a large loop-fastener area which also fits our optional i.d. window patch. A loop-field on the top surface doubles as a MOLLE/modular area. When there is only time to grab-and-go one thing, make it this.

PLEASE NOTE: The Ditch(TM) does not come with a shoulder strap (this can be purchased separately).

Has served me wellReview by Pickles
I have had a ditch for about 5 years now, and it is stilll going really strong. Have been using it as a work bag in the mines of australia and for every other use possible i can imagine, has looked after my laptops in its pouch while have spanners and screwdrivers in the main compartment. Very well made bag and only now am having minor stitching issues on the base protection plastic. Strap is starting to fail but has seen some really hard strain. Can not recommend enough.

Great Bag!Review by Boscoboy
Get one you will not be disappointed. Lots of room. Only bummer is there is no over the shoulder strap but i don't use it enough for it to bother me. (Posted on 8/10/2016)
Awesome bag! Its all you need!Review by Gear G
I love this bag and carry it every day for work. I've even taken just this bag on overnight flyaways and got along just fine. There's room for my laptop, a change of clothes, my files and hygiene kit with plenty of room left over for hauling more stuff back. Saves on checked luggage fees and keeps my work accessible on the aircraft. Most of my friends use EDC packs, but I can't get used to taking a backpack into the city instead of the woods! Give this bag a try and you'll be sold; its winner! (Posted on 12/29/2014)
Great BagReview by Richard G
This is a very well made bag. I can carry all of my laptop & photo gear safely in this bag on flights. Plenty of room. The divider I bought didn't work out at all. It took up too much space for what I wanted it for. Get this Ditch bag, you will not regret it. (Posted on 8/4/2013)
Ditch(TM) Laptop Soft-Briefcase/Go-Bag w/ MOLLEReview by Carl
Ditch(TM) Laptop Soft-Briefcase/Go-Bag w/ MOLLE Part Number MSG-DCH Using this with Padded Shoulder Strap with Stabilizer Strap Part Number ACS-PSTRP to carry and protect laptop. Got caught in rain and item appears water-resistant or repellant, at least does not act like a sponge! Laptop was kept dry. (Posted on 12/23/2012)
OwnerReview by D
The Ditch is the ultimate portable office for me. It fits my notebook, accordian file, phones and all the usual other stuff. I expect that. But it also can carry promo posters, flyers, stickers, buttons, and even a shirt or two without getting bulky or nearing capacity. I also like the way I can reach in and find whatever it is that I need without looking for it. It's a good tool and will easily earn it's keep by the end of the month. (Posted on 5/8/2012)
MeReview by Dan D

I love the bag! It has just the right mix of storage space and size. I used a few external pouches (one for all my power connectors and another for ID. (Posted on 4/2/2011)

15" laptop. Is that 15" across, or is that a 15" diagonal screen measurement?
Our laptop sizing refers to the laptop screen size, so for a 15" laptop, that should be 15" diagonal screen measurement (not the actual length of the laptop).
