Maxpedition EDC Organiser Owners Club
« on: January 13, 2010, 09:52:09 PM »
As there are threads and clubs for various multi tools I thought we could have one for the seemingly popular Maxpedition EDC Organiser  :drink:

I would be keen to see what everyone else is stocking theirs with and get some ideas all in one handy thread  :D

Obviously this isn't limited the Maxped version; all edc organisers welcome  :salute:

So here is mine. I only got it a couple of days ago and this is my first set up.

The one I ordered in khaki showed up today. No photo yet though it's almost full now except for a peanut lighter and tweezer I am waiting on. I filled it with useful stuff I will be transferring between a couple of Maxpedition bags that I use though it will primarily be in the Pygmy Falcon II that is my EDC bag. The EDC Organizer fits perfectly in the front slash pocket of the PFII and the little grab handle is ideal for pulling it back out of the pocket. So far I'm pretty happy with it.  :tu:

Are these really meant to be used to organise a pocket?  I tried mine in a cargo pocket and couldn't get things back in without taking the damn thing out of my pocket every time.  :ahhh

I will probably just end up using it as everyone else seems to, to transfer stuff between bags and stop it rattling about.  It just seems silly they would market something as a pocket organiser that can't be used in a pocket.  :think:

I'll thrown mine in here.  Just got  it a few days ago.  I've messed around with the order some, but here's the first pic.



I love this thing.

I'm not sure that the intention is for one to reach into the pocketed organizer and extract items and then put them back. Rather, one is expected to pull the organizer out, retrieve the item, and then put it back into the pocket. Thus the grab handle.

Of course I think they are best inside a larger bag, but...

I own a lot of Maxpedition and some Spec-Ops gear, but not this Maxpedition organizer.  I don't have a pocket large enough for it.

Can you open up this organizer and zip it inside out?    That would make it easier to access gear while the organizer is inside your pocket without removing the organizer.

I have one, thanks to Yellowhammer :D  but I haven't quite figured out what to use it for yet.

Currently it has the "extra" stuff which can be taken out of the bag easily when not needed. The sort of thing in there is paracord, hand sanitiser, arnica stick, tape measure and things like that. It's very bulked out as these items are quite thick added up.

This may of course change like the wind!  ::)

I'm having a rethink on mine, now I've tried it for a week and have learned some things......

I'm still not totally sure, but the concept works, now I need to refine it a bit  :-\

I may actually get another :D

Ooh, the organisation sickness has got you baaaad! :D

If you want other cases without all the bits in, I got a couple of Crumpler ones for £2 from www.bigoffers.co.uk which were a serious bargain. They have a bunch of cheapo stuff worth checking out and delivered quite fast too.

I'll check those out - thanks Chris :tu:

I do kind of have my eye on a foliage green Maxped one though :D

I'm taking Glorn's advice and have ordered the triple mag holder, and that's where I'm going to put the Charge I think, in the CCW pocket on the Fatboy  :-\

The organiser will then be made more legal / sheeple friendly by putting a PST or Juice, PST II or something in there, with the UKPK in my pocket.

So many things to consider  :ahhh

 :tu: It is a small and unassuming bit of kit, but it sure does make that pocket useful. Especially for the tool junkie.

But..

What will you put in the built in sheath? Torch?

And what will you put in the add-on sheath? You know, when you order it..   ;)

It never ends. But then, getting there is half the fun, isn't it?  :D

And new kit comes out every year. So the evolution continues. It's almost a hobby in and of itself. I can think of many more useless hobbies though. At least my obsessions make my daily life easier.

Tinkering with stuff configuration is definitely one of my main hobbies, but I realise that I get a lot of enjoyment out of it without having to buy new stuff (too often).

It really is half the fun of being in to this stuff for me personally :D

Well it arrived this morning and now I'm wondering how the hell I managed before - so cheers for the tip Glorn mate  :cheers:

With my Fatboy, and with my old Thermite, I never used the CCW pocket much at all, because I couldn't see a practical use for it. Now I can!

Cheers to you!  :cheers:

Isn't it terrific that they came up with such a smart little thing? I gotta say, Maxpedition really has it together over there. Which is precisely why I don't mind playing unpaid spokesperson for them. It simply is rock solid kit.

Now, are you carrying the organizer in the main pocket? It works very well. As I said before, all you need now is a "single sheath" like this to attach on the side pouch. You know, with the built in sheath and the add-on sheath... and the triple mag holder... one could carry any combination of five items and still have the rest of the bag free. So you could have 2 MTs, 2 lights, and a good size folder... or 2 folders, 2 MTs and a light... or....  :ahhh
