I tend to agree with you, Bingley, about organizers being too big. I suspect that this one is going to quickly start residing in my Jeep. It fits in my cargo pockets and jacket pockets but I don't think I'm going to EDC it for long. I could be wrong, but I think I'm going to revert to spreading stuff out in my pockets, my (up until this point) favorite way to carry my edc gear in the winter, spring and fall.

This kit does have 2 molle straps on the back, so could go on my belt, and I can probably rig it like a purse with a shoulder strap, but...... I already have a purse that I use for EDC in the warmer weather. No wonder so many people have so much redundant gear!

That's why I haven't put anything in mine yet. Trying to decide what to do with it as far as being able to possible EDC it. It's too big for my regular jeans pockets as well as my work khakis.

Probably end up relegating it to residing in my SHTF bag eventually.

Damn you Chaos! I was at step 8 of my 12-step flashaholic recovery program. And look, buy 4 and get one FREE. How can one resist?

I'd also have difficultly using the organizer as a wallet. I'm not much of a murse guy, nor do I generally wear fanny packs (at least not where someone might know me!). I could see it helping to organize my EDC bag. I wonder if there's one that will fit that battleaxe Bing posted up?

These pocket organizers are not wallets and about teh only pocket they'd be compatible with are the thigh pockets on six pocket trousers.

I have mine attached via PALs webbing to the EOD Utility Bag linked in my previous post. It helps to keep small stuff from getting lost inside the larger bag and at the same time it doesn't take up room inside the larger bag.

It's funny how it seemed so much smaller when it was empty! I love it but now I'm on the hunt for a new wallet again.

LOL! I went to look at lights today. Passed on an 8 pk of cheapie 3XAAAs for $10, almost bought a Fenix TK15 but couldn't afford it, and they didn't have any Thrunites. First time I ever walked out of that store without buying a single thing. But then I saw a mag solitare for $4 on my way to the post office for stamps. It filled a hole, gave a cheap fix and delayed that next big purchase for a little while longer.

Damn you enablers! LOL!!

Jac,

Not sure how big a wallet you need but I really do like my Mission Leather wallet.





Fits into my front pocket and carries my knife, flashlight, cash, bandages, notepad, pen and pencil.

They come in a number of leathers including ostrich and stingray. You can find them at Blade Art.

Thanks so much, Andy. I've heard good things about the mission wallet. I'm adding it to my search list!
