Looking at improving what I have. Thinking active shooter scenario, etc....
Needs to have a shoulder strap and/or must be able to be deployed easily.
I would think a small tool/duffel bag, or a "tactical briefcase" - ie one of the cases that has retaining straps / elastic to hold the contents in place despite getting thrown around.
I'd carry several high(er) cap mags for my duty sidearm, extra shells for the car gun (shotty) or mags for the rifle (if issued); maybe extra OC, tactical flashlight, and nylock cuffs.
Blackhawk sells a bag that carries everything. I have one it has a strap for your shoulder and waist carries six ar mags and pistol mags. it also has shot shell holders on the inside. It has a map case built in to it. Well you get the idea it is set up great. Cost about $80 dollars. I used it in a rapid deployment class for school and work place shootings and it rocked. Never was with out anything.
Triad Tactical sells a Go Bag from Killer Gear, Eagle Industries has an Active Shooter Bag. Prices range about $20-$30. I personally have a Paratrooper Document Bag from Brigade Quartermasters that does everything I want it to do. Holds 6 30 round AR Mags, plus maps, cleaning rods, water, etc. About $15 from actiongear.com. Great bag for the money.
Maxpedition Fatboy s pack
I've really been eyeballing that one, hangs on the correct side, holds a fair amount of stuff.....but pricey.
i use a killer gear go-bag , it's about as keep it simple stupid as it gets. very good quality workmanship.
Ive got an old Army issue CVC helmet bag, and it is getting WAY overstuffed, so I'm up for suggestions, too.
I've got my plate carrier set up with 4 extra AR mags and 2 more pistol mags. I have to go to my trunk to get my rifle so it takes me an extra minute to throw the vest on.
If I need my rifle I want my plates.
AZ-K9 what kind of gear are you wanting to carry in it? Just mags/ammo?
Eagle makes some quality shit. I've been a huge fan for a while now. They offer a decent LEO discount, and they're a notch above Blackhawk. They have tons of different gear, ammo, range, and weapons bags. Their packs are great too. I have their 3 day Assault Pack, and it's tough as nails.
4-6 Ar mags, Sig 229 with 2 extra mags, small light (stinger), maybe some quick clot (some other med stuff), a knife and a granola bar.
Maxpedition Fatboy Versa pack S-type jumbo pack. It holds more than the standard versa-pack.

The E&E Bag at http://www.dbtdefense.com/ Under load out bags is a really good choice as well these are the specs
BattleLab Escape & Evasion Bag
The BattleLab E & E Bag was designed with input from operators in theater. This is the bag you need to carry all your essentials in your vehicle or over your shoulder when you need to get the hell outta Dodge. Large #10 YKK zippers give you access to the bag’s main compartment which includes two dividers with pocket for the MBTR, straps for chem lights, etc. and a hook & loop compartment that includes pistol and magazine holster. There is also additional space for medical supplies, food, water bottle, etc. The exterior of the bag has a GPS pouch, two pistol mag pouches and three M4/M16 mag pouches (holds a total of 6). What makes this bag even better is the large over flap, which includes a map pouch, that covers the main compartment zipper and M4/M16 pouches and secures with a Fastex buckle. It disguises the contents, making the E & E Bag perfect for low profile operations, vehicle bag or simply an operational bag for carrying more kit. 10” H x 11.5” W x 5 1/4” D
From What you said you wanted to carry I would think the E&E bag would do you great
Someone mentioned Maxpedition...
Just switched from an old Blackhawk bag to a Maxpedition Devildog pack. It is mostly a daily use/duty bag, but is perfect for a BOB or reserve bag.
It easily holds:
Small firstaid kit
It has waist straps and a sholder strap that tuck away when they aren't needed.
So far, I like it.
I just keep a LBV in a small backpack in my trunk. I have 6 AR mags, a Glock 21, five extra Glock 21 mags, bandage, batteries, and it has an extra pouch for my radio.
If I'm in an active shooter situation, or a Katrina situation, I can deploy the vest when I go for my rifle.
In my gear bag riding shotgun, I've got an extra light, cuffs, etc... The vest is primarily for ammo.
I'll most likely retire from the streets without ever opening that backpack, but it's nice knowing its there.
My backpack and rifle case:
All my gear. The Glock 26 and 30 are concealed on my body armor.
