This thread is a place for me to post different aspects of my collections and the carry systems that arise them (as well as my thoughts on the system in question). So without further ado here's the first and most recent system, based off of a very old Gameboy Advance SP pouch:
A chunky boy, weighing in with this loadout at 1.2lbs
Front pocket unzipped, orientating the Swiss Card this way puts most of it's tool set at the opening, allowing quick access without needing to take it out.
Front pocket contents emptied out (top to bottom, left to right):
-A Swiss Card that I've probably had now for 14/15 years now
-The capsule from a True Utility Fire Stash, with ten cut down strike anywhere matches
-Duct Tape wrapped around a cut down nail
-Two of those ultra compressed towlettes that expand in water
Top down view of the main compartment, the folded hankerchief acting like a sleeve to keep the pry bar orientated for quick access.
Everything out, main compartment contents:
-Fenix E11 w/ NiMH Duracell (2400mAh)
-'Godfather' knife (D2 blade, smooth G10)
-Misc. Stainless prybar w/550 lanyard (love the green)Thoughts:
I'm liking this loadout so far, it covers pretty much all of the tool bases I want and the Gameboy pouch is wonderfully suited to this (I'm a little concerned about the main zipper durability, but that's it), the belt loop is both closed and has a snap option for quick removal. I went for the matches over an insert replaced Zippo purely to get more in the compartment, damn I wish the UK sold mini Bics
The biggest question marks over the kit for me right now are the knife and Rebar, I love the Rebar but it's the source of a lot of the weight, ideally I'd want the covnerter card for it to give more driver options. The only tool I'd really sub it out for is the Skeletool (Wave belongs in other kits already) but it's a knife centric tool in a kit that has a dedicated folder
The weight isn't really that bad, and despite the bulkiness this actually fits in a lounge/sweat pants pocket without over stretching it 9 or pulling said pants down). Definitely in the development stages still, but so far a fan of this load out
